vegetable rice pilaf

December 2, 2012

0

If you are anything like me, you over-bought for Thanksgiving in a bewildering way. I managed to shop for carrots and celery twice when my sister had asked me only to make on tray of stuffing (which only requires one cup of diced celery) none of which required carrots. I did have a serious stomach bug issue […]

glazed chicken

November 16, 2012

I made this “glaze” but then I didn’t… glaze anything with it. I drizzled it on top of our foods. So I suppose it’s a “dressing” not a glaze. This meal was a pantry/freezer meal, I try to keep enough meat in the freezer to make at least two totally different meals. I wanted to […]

brown rice and arugula pilaf

November 6, 2012

0

Without remembering how long it took to cook brown rice, I started making this at the same time as I started to grill up some steak tips (indoors) on my griddle/grill. First you  start out by tossing the orzo in a pan, and make it nice and brown. Then, get distracted and forget to take pictures […]

burrito-fritatta-muffin-sized bowls

October 23, 2012

I have a love/hate relationship with leftovers. I feel like they should be used, not thrown away, if they’ll stay good long enough for me to figure out what to do with them… The hate come into play when I can’t figure out what to do with them and they sit and take up useful […]

burrito with a side of whimsy

October 19, 2012

I am stuck in a rut. A rut full of eggs. While I would agree with the statement “eggs can be added to pretty much any meal” in my kitchen it means I most often am guided by poor planning, or distracted shopping, and now to “fill” for dinner, I’m adding some eggs. I’ve become […]

salmon, herbed basmati and asparagus

October 9, 2012

I decided to try roasting salmon on top of slices of lemon. I heard somewhere that it makes the fish stay more moist while it’s cooking. It also is a really good use of already zested lemons. I had a few that were kicking around in the crisper drawer, and sans peel there are fewer […]

sweet potato stir fry with honey & ginger sauce

September 30, 2012

As Autumn moves in, some flavors best kept to cooler nights, and mainstays during holiday meals come into play. For now, it’s sweet potato. Sometimes the fridge is bare. Sometimes it’s packed to the gills. Sometimes you have more beers than anything else (or maybe that’s just us…), sometimes more cheese. It’s a magnificent thing, […]

risi e bisi, herbed chicken, and cauliflower

September 13, 2012

Do you like risi e bisi? I do. I won’t lie, when I say it, it sounds more like “reees-beeesy” I’ve had this dish about a million times in my life, but it has been a long, long time since I made it. This is the recipe from my mom’s book. Everybody Cooks Rice. Does […]

“Not too shabby, for your first try..” he said as he shoveled the food into his mouth. “Oh, yeah? Well, I’ll be honest, the spices came already mixed. I just added soy sauce and stuff to it…” I replied. No excuses, says Julia Child. And while it’s not an excuse, per se, I just didn’t […]

Empanadas and a few sides

Last year for my birthday I literally got everything I wanted. It was insane. Who knew if you put together a very specific list and sent it out into the wild world of the web, you could receive said items before, on, or just after your birthday! Where am I going with this, you might […]
