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 […]

peanut butter cups

My love of Reese’s overcame me the other day. I had to have some. I buy chocolate chips and or baking chocolate when they are on sale, or when I have coupons. I had a few bags in the drawer with no real plan to use them. I got a metric ton of creamy peanut […]

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 may be more interested in making chocolate things, now that I have an outlet for them. I’ll try a bite here and there, but I still don’t search out chocolate things (save my¬†absolute¬†favorite candy that is hidden inside this cupcake) but most of the things I bake get packed up and delivered to people […]

gooey butter cake

This theme-y cooking stuff is for the birds! I’ve lost two weeks in a row now at fantasy football, and I blame it entirely on my wanting to be all matchy-matchy with London and fish’n’chips, and that the Pats played St. Louis in London, so I made this gooey butter cake. I really shouldn’t be […]

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 […]

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

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 […]

no-bake oreo cheesecake

My MO lately has been to buy Oreos while they are on sale. It’s amazing the things you can stick these buggers in! Mash them up, or just sneak a handful or make some cupcakes. It’s nice to have a reserve in the snack drawer, whenever I get the feeling to make something, theres usually […]
