homemade mac n cheese

December 4, 2012

4

I love baked mac and cheese. I like to forget completely about lactose intolerance and how upset my stomach will be with me later and focus more on how nice and creamy the sauce is, how well the cheese will crisp up on the top to give it a little more something to bite into. […]

BBQ Chicken Pizza

November 26, 2012

0

One of the pizzas that has recently become one of the more popular and frequent orders for delivery is the BBQ chicken pizza. I wasn’t its biggest fan inthe beginning, but like many of the things I’ve tried in the last few years, instead of never trying it again, or deeming it inedible , I’ve […]

sausage casserole

Yesterday was a little less crazy than some Thanksgivings can be. I had the usual marathon, running from one house to the next, not really enjoying as much wine as I would like to given the fact that I’d have to be getting back in the car not long after the glass was poured. When […]

glazed chicken

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 […]

grilled cheese with buffalo chicken

I introduced my boyfriend’s mother to the buffalo chicken dip that I made this weekend. We gobbled it up while watching the oh-so-nail-bitingly-crazy Patriots game on Sunday. She hadn’t heard of it, and after helping me make it, seems ready to put it into the rotation for football Sundays or when they have a large […]

burrito-fritatta-muffin-sized bowls

October 23, 2012

2

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 […]

artichoke and white bean fusilli

I bought the pasta attachment that I’d wanted forever from Target the other day. It, miraculously enough, was on sale the day after my birthday, and with free shipping (oh, yeah, AAA discounts, if you don’t know, you’d better find out…) so it showed up about a week or so after that. My kitchenaid mixer […]

beef stew with sandwich bread

The average temperature¬†continues¬†to drop, we have entered the true beginning of Autumn; my personal favorite season for a variety of reasons, but above all it’s the best time of year to have good comfort foods enter the rotation again. It’s no longer too hot to bake whatever you want. Before it’s cooked at least 5 […]

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 […]
