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 […]

burrito-fritatta-muffin-sized bowls

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 […]

Applesauce Coffee Cake

October 16, 2012

7

I saw this recipe on one of my favorite food blogs, and I knew I had to make it. It looked delicious. I was a bit confused as to how the crumb topping ended up being on the bottom. But as long as there was a crumbly sugary part, really who cares if it ends […]

how to : applesauce

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 […]

artichoke and white bean fusilli

I bought the pasta attachment that I’d wanted forever from Target the other day. It, miraculously enough, was on sale the day after my birthday, and with free shipping (oh, yeah, AAA discounts, if you don’t know, you’d better find out…) so it showed up about a week or so after that. My kitchenaid mixer […]

butternut and tomatillo ravioli with butter sauce

  With winter around the corner. It’s time to roll out warm meals. The best part of this time of year is great comfort foods. One thing that never grows old is the fact that you can take something simple and traditional, and switch it up. One of my favorite things in the word is […]

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, […]

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 […]
