how to : applesauce

October 14, 2012

Making applesauce is so stupidly easy. There really is no good excuse to buy it at the store, unless you can’t get apples where you are, or don’t have a stovetop, crock pot, or even a hot plate for christssake. Also, if you continue to cook down your applesauce, you’ll be making apple butter. I’ve […]

Dear WordPress App for iPhone, How are you? Things must be hella busy for you right now, you are forever deleting or altering the things that I try to post! I mean, if you’d like to be a participant in my lil’ole blog, we’ll have to get on the same page. And let’s have that […]

double peanut butter cookies

Would a peanut butter cookie get better with peanut butter chips tossed in? I had to know. I also had a burning desire not to have a bag of reeses chips kicking around for too long, because I might’ve started eating them straight out of the bag… I didn’t change all that much from the recipe that I […]

Have you ever bought “b-grade” tomatoes in bulk? Well, if you are planning on it, do it on a day that you will have time to do something with them SOON, don’t pick them up on the Wednesday of a ridiculously busy week and think that you can leave them “til you have time” because, […]

risi e bisi, herbed chicken, and cauliflower

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 […]

Happy Birthday To Me!

September 11, 2012

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 […]

“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 […]

spicy [ginger] molasses cookies

September 3, 2012

For a long time I thought that vegetable shortening was a no-go. It had no place in the house I grew up in, and though we were eating vegetarian, organic and non-processed for most of my childhood, and we made a bizarre transition from butter to margarine for a little while (much to my dismay) and then somebody smartened […]

chocolate chip cookies

I don’t really like chocolate at all. I’ve been over this a great many times. After asking my better/other half if he’d try these cookies he informed me that he didn’t really like chocolate chip cookies either. Damn. Left here with all these cookies, what’s a girl to do!? Silly girl. Not left with cookies, […]

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 […]
