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 […]

baked mozzarella sticks and marinara sauce

November 11, 2012

2

There are a multitude of things that I adore to eat, but have never thought to make at home because I had always assumed they’d be too hard to recreate in a residential kitchen, or I’d be so disappointed by how different they would come out that it would be pointless. Mozzarella sticks were a […]

brown rice and arugula pilaf

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 […]

simple oatmeal cookies

October 24, 2012

“Well,” I said “I can make oatmeal cookies, but I don’t have a damn thing to put in them. No chocolate chips, no raisins, nothing!” To this, I got a bit of a weird look. “Convenient. I don’t like oatmeal cookies that have stuff in them.” Enough said! I was off to the stand mixer […]

Applesauce Coffee Cake

October 16, 2012

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 […]

Can you believe it’s October? I can’t believe that time has passed this quickly! It seems like just yesterday I was sweating to death, trying to find some shade at work, and eager to go anywhere that might have air conditioning. oh, chicken pot pie homemade hot pocket? Why, yes. In a manner of speaking. […]

sweet potato stir fry with honey & ginger sauce

September 30, 2012

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, […]
