quesadilla – strip down version

April 17, 2014

I’m not sure why I’m still awake, or who this dude is after Jimmy Fallon- I haven’t been awake for the late-LATE show for an age and a half. Maybe it was the afternoon coffee followed by gym, cleaning and a second wind? I’m glad this late-late guy muted cause he looks just too awkward […]

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 […]

time flies, when you’re having fun

November 20, 2013

It has been a miserably long time since I’ve been able to even figure out how to make enough time for essential tasks when I get home from work, let alone things I want to do. Now that I’ve finally found some, I’m leaving my laundry to fend for itself, and I’m finally, finally able […]

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 […]

chicken pot pie

With my lofty plans for triumphs in the kitchen this week, I thought I might start off with something that I knew would be easily stored, quickly reheated, safely transported to my little sister so she could simplify her college life and (hopefully) be focused on homework and not have to worry about a few […]

bacon brussel sprouts

March 7, 2013

My love of bacon usually knows no boundaries. I’ll try to add it to anything. Sometimes it works a little more seamlessly than other times. When you only have two or three ingredients, it works out pretty well. I had some brussel sprouts and had absolutely no idea what to do with them. As I listed […]

Chicken & Dumplings

The list of reasons why I don’t just sit down and type a few things up seems to be growing. First, we moved, and nothing was where it should be, or where I wanted it to be, and now that we’ve been here for about a month – things aren’t all in place yet, but the boxes […]

a distraction, and arepas

February 3, 2013

I’ve been MIA for quite some time, and for that I apologize if anybody has noticed… (Sorry, Aimee!?) My life has been on such a bizarre roller coaster for the past while that I have failed to do a great many thing, but especially one of the things that have recently taken so much enjoyment […]

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. […]

vegetable rice pilaf

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 […]
