shredded chicken, an exercise in multitasking

September 27, 2012

There are about a million things that you can do with shredded chicken. I just did a search for recipes that included it as a main ingredient and there’s even a cookbook dedicated to it. I only recently found out that the easiest way to get some shredded chicken is to boil a chicken. Never […]

Dejavu, all over again, right? You just saw these rolls. Why do you care to see them again? Because I’ve got a few minutes and I decided to break these things down into various posts so that I can ‘splain myself, and pass the time until my food needs to come out of the oven. […]

Homemade Hamburger Buns

Do you hate food shopping after a workday? I do. I mouth off about it constantly. I manage to forget more things than I remember to buy when I shop after work, the distractions are loud and never ending, and I almost got run over by kids screaming down the aisles last time. I managed […]

Happy Birthday To Me!

September 11, 2012

6

This past Saturday I turned 28. It’s been a pretty good year, overall. Busy, at times crazy making, and exhausting, but all in all not too shabby. I woke up, made some coffee, watched the news. Waited for what seemed like an eternity for my Auntie to call me to sing happy birthday. She usually […]

auntie’s flat bread (pizza)

One thing that I am frequently surprised about: how much I enjoy eating a fresh tomato. This seems like no crazy ordeal, for sure. But had you met me over a decade ago and suggested I chop up a nice fresh tomato and toss a piece in my mouth, I would tell you that you must be […]

The title should probably read “how to cook dinner in under 30 minutes without going to the grocery store” because I flatly refused to waste precious sitting down time after work with the stress of the grocery store, plus, I couldn’t find my list, and I wasn’t interested in making an expensive mistake. I got out of […]

mustard and maple roasted salmon, bean salad, and herbed basmati rice

I was looking for a dinner I could make in about 25-30 minutes. Had I figured out that I should’ve either grabbed my ipad, or make it so my stupid laptop stops falling asleep, and making the recipes go away every few minutes… it would’ve probably taken just 25 minutes, but even with the distractions […]

Arugula and Garlic Scape Pesto

Pesto has got to be one of the tastiest things. Ever. I know not everybody will agree with that statement, and that will just have to be ok. Pesto is easy to make, and is one of the things that makes joining a CSA totally worth it – aside from the cost, supporting local farms, […]

Father’s Day Cake – an in depth look

June 25, 2012

I feel like I have described, ad nauseam, how much my father likes chocolate, cookies, desserts — things that involve sugar, or most combinations of the aforementioned with chocolate. He’s the guy who used to lick the cake so that his sisters wouldn’t want to eat it. Then when we were kids, he would threaten […]

Father’s Day Weekend pt 1- 1/2

June 17, 2012

In order to try to make tomorrow less hectic, and include more sleeping and laundry. I have tried to prep things in a way that I’ve never attempted before. I have a few things to do tomorrow, but I’m hoping the majority of them can be done while cleaning the house and doing laundry. This […]
