roasted red pepper pasta sauce

January 3, 2014

0

I’ve got this ability to cook for about a zillion people even though it’s only been me and Mr. Julia eating on a daily basis. Sometimes the things that I really want to cook, or when I find a recipe that looks “too cool to ignore” they don’t always re-heat to then become a second meal, or […]

Lemony Spinach Pasta

March 24, 2013

1

            This is a simple way to use up a lot of spinach – I usually have the majority of a bag left over once I make the handful or so into a salad or something (usually the handful is the reason that I bought the bag in the first […]

I, like so many Americans, am so guilty of eating way more than a recommended serving of pasta, and probably everything else, as well. Since we rarely eat out these days, and can easily avoid a 3-cup portion of pasta arriving on our table, I’ve been trying to figure out just how much I should be making […]

best homefries

November 8, 2012

2

I made homefries, and for the first time ever they didn’t take a million years to cook. They came out magnificently. I never could really understand what the trick was – aside from the times that I made homefries from leftover potatoes that were already boiled. These were just what I needed on a slow […]
