Sometimes I realize that I like something so much that I will make it in a strange time of day (appetizer/party food for lunch, anyone?) or go shopping precisely for the ingredients to make it at somebody else’s house so that they can taste it and see if they like it? I did that the […]

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 […]

I suggest that you stop what you are doing, and make yourself some beer batter – or for a possibly more reasonable suggestion, just add it to the next meal that you make…I would go with about half, or even a quarter of the amount that I made for the fish and chips that I […]

beer battered fish n’ chips

November 12, 2012

1

I made fish and chips, ages ago now, but have been so easy distracted by work, people, laundry, paperwork, and sleep, that I haven’t been able to get myself, my camera and my computer to have some focused alone time to be able to load, crop, and write these ideas and meals down. I made […]

brown rice and arugula pilaf

November 6, 2012

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 […]

grilled cheese with buffalo chicken

October 25, 2012

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

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 […]

meatballs, including chicken

October 20, 2012

7

shhh don’t tell… I added ground chicken to these meatballs. They are made from the same recipe that I usually use, but I subbed one pound ground chicken, and the rest – 2 pounds of ground beef. I used a mixture of seasoned breadcrumbs and plain. Some fresh parsley and arugula, minced. All I had […]

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 […]

Applesauce Coffee Cake

October 16, 2012

I saw this recipe on one of my favorite food blogs, and I knew I had to make it. It looked delicious. I was a bit confused as to how the crumb topping ended up being on the bottom. But as long as there was a crumbly sugary part, really who cares if it ends […]
