Lemony Spinach Pasta

March 24, 2013

1

            This is a simple way to use up a lot of spinach – I usually have the majority of a bag left over once I make the handful or so into a salad or something (usually the handful is the reason that I bought the bag in the first […]

salmon with cheese orzo

March 21, 2013

1

  Three days into my challenge to stretch just under $100 as far as I knew how, and I decided not to follow my list. Well, not to a tee… I bought Salmon, and I got parsley and a few other greens that I was going to try to make this other salmon dish with, […]

chicken pot pie

With my lofty plans for triumphs in the kitchen this week, I thought I might start off with something that I knew would be easily stored, quickly reheated, safely transported to my little sister so she could simplify her college life and (hopefully) be focused on homework and not have to worry about a few […]

an attempt at meal planning…

I have this habit when I get into bed, I pick up my ipad (regardless of if the tv is on or not…) and read myself to sleep, but sometimes I scan Pintrest and like just about everything I see when I’m falling asleep. Sometimes I just google the word recipe next to something that […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Limoges Oatmeal Bread

November 19, 2012

I have been searching and searching for the best sandwich bread recipe I could find. And (knock on wood) I’ve found it. This bread is from a little cookbook that my little sister’s school put together in 2005. It’s called Food Kids Eat, The Village School Cookbook. It was a project that the kids, their parents […]

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 […]
