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 […]

steak tips

October 22, 2012

2

Steak tips are a great summer meal, but sometimes the weather, and my desire to wash dishes sync up beautifully and grilling can happen in October. I made smashed potatoes, because I still have not invested in a potato masher, nor did I ever think of putting the cooked potatoes in my stand mixer or […]

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 […]

Caprase Salad

I was talking to Aunty Cathy about our basil plants. She has a much more serious garden than I do… See example of mine below… She remarked that she was showing her friend how well they were doing this summer “see how the pesto is doing?” I too refer to my basil as its final […]

sweet potato stir fry with honey & ginger sauce

September 30, 2012

2

As Autumn moves in, some flavors best kept to cooler nights, and mainstays during holiday meals come into play. For now, it’s sweet potato. Sometimes the fridge is bare. Sometimes it’s packed to the gills. Sometimes you have more beers than anything else (or maybe that’s just us…), sometimes more cheese. It’s a magnificent thing, […]

Have you ever wondered how to freak your neighbors out? Shut them up in a second, and have them stare at you like you have six heads? Good. Well, I can tell you how to achieve this, while having a tasty snack. Cook these pig’n’blankets, wear a turbie towel outside while juggling new superexpensive camera, […]

chicken parm

Told ya that canning was my thing last week… if I were to channel my dad’s sense of humor hardcore, I’d say that ‘canning was my jam’ get it? Jam? Canning? Yup, could’ve saved you from that, but chose not to! I found a grocery store (Market Basket, to be specific) that has the cheapest […]

sweet potato fries

September 22, 2012

2

When I’m out, and I order fries, I usually look for sweet potato, or if they don’t have that, I’m gonna wanna see spicy, or curly, or some other descriptive word next to the word “fries”. They have a tendancy to make me feel happier about wolfing down fries, and also… I like the taste […]

Homemade Hamburger Buns

September 20, 2012

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 […]

risi e bisi, herbed chicken, and cauliflower

September 13, 2012

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 […]
