the break down; a store, a girl, and her breakfast sandwich

August 3, 2014

Here in Boston, I know that my fridge is not alone in feeling deeply affected by the rift between Arthur T, and Arthur S Demoulas. Whether or not it’s really or officially the “last stand of the middle class”  or not, standing with the people who, at ground level, provide me with the ingredients to make […]

biscuits (in under 20 mins)

February 5, 2014

At my parents house, you’ll find a copy of the Joy Of Cooking. The pages are kinda stuck together, and have some old dollops of batter staining the paper, making it look prematurely aged when it gets to the 600s. This is where you will find all the scones, cakes and biscuit recipes. While my […]

salmon with cheese orzo

March 21, 2013

  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, […]

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 […]

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

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 […]

best homefries

November 8, 2012

2

I made homefries, and for the first time ever they didn’t take a million years to cook. They came out magnificently. I never could really understand what the trick was – aside from the times that I made homefries from leftover potatoes that were already boiled. These were just what I needed on a slow […]

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 […]

steak tips

October 22, 2012

2

Steak tips are a great summer meal, but sometimes the weather, and my desire to wash dishes sync up beautifully and grilling can happen in October. I made smashed potatoes, because I still have not invested in a potato masher, nor did I ever think of putting the cooked potatoes in my stand mixer or […]

salmon, herbed basmati and asparagus

October 9, 2012

I decided to try roasting salmon on top of slices of lemon. I heard somewhere that it makes the fish stay more moist while it’s cooking. It also is a really good use of already zested lemons. I had a few that were kicking around in the crisper drawer, and sans peel there are fewer […]
