bacon brussel sprouts

March 7, 2013

4

My love of bacon usually knows no boundaries. I’ll try to add it to anything. Sometimes it works a little more seamlessly than other times. When you only have two or three ingredients, it works out pretty well. I had some brussel sprouts and had absolutely no idea what to do with them. As I listed […]

Chicken & Dumplings

March 5, 2013

6

The list of reasons why I don’t just sit down and type a few things up seems to be growing. First, we moved, and nothing was where it should be, or where I wanted it to be, and now that we’ve been here for about a month – things aren’t all in place yet, but the boxes […]

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 […]

homemade mac n cheese

December 4, 2012

I love baked mac and cheese. I like to forget completely about lactose intolerance and how upset my stomach will be with me later and focus more on how nice and creamy the sauce is, how well the cheese will crisp up on the top to give it a little more something to bite into. […]

vegetable rice pilaf

If you are anything like me, you over-bought for Thanksgiving in a bewildering way. I managed to shop for carrots and celery twice when my sister had asked me only to make on tray of stuffing (which only requires one cup of diced celery) none of which required carrots. I did have a serious stomach bug issue […]

BBQ Chicken Pizza

November 26, 2012

0

One of the pizzas that has recently become one of the more popular and frequent orders for delivery is the BBQ chicken pizza. I wasn’t its biggest fan inthe beginning, but like many of the things I’ve tried in the last few years, instead of never trying it again, or deeming it inedible , I’ve […]

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 […]

sausage casserole

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 […]

glazed chicken

November 16, 2012

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

2

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 […]
