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 […]

Autumn Salad

November 25, 2012

0

I’m guilty of not making enough salads, or really making any consistent effort to get fresh vegetables on the dinner table. I notice what’s missing every time, it’s the doing something I’m going to have to work on. But this past week I got tangerines for a drink that I forgot to make – or […]

glazed chicken

I made this “glaze” but then I didn’t… glaze anything with it. I drizzled it on top of our foods. So I suppose it’s a “dressing” not a glaze. This meal was a pantry/freezer meal, I try to keep enough meat in the freezer to make at least two totally different meals. I wanted to […]

fresh pasta with prosciutto and peas

November 15, 2012

I, like so many Americans, am so guilty of eating way more than a recommended serving of pasta, and probably everything else, as well. Since we rarely eat out these days, and can easily avoid a 3-cup portion of pasta arriving on our table, I’ve been trying to figure out just how much I should be making […]

onion rings

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

0

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 […]

whole wheat rigatoni

With the impending doom of Sandy on her way, I’m unsure if I really should’ve taken the time to go to the grocery store before it became a mess – I don’t usually prepare for storms like the news would have you believe most of us do, but I don’t like to have my weekly shopping slowed […]

grilled cheese with buffalo chicken

October 25, 2012

3

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

October 23, 2012

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 […]
