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, […]

sweet potato fries

September 22, 2012

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 […]

Dejavu, all over again, right? You just saw these rolls. Why do you care to see them again? Because I’ve got a few minutes and I decided to break these things down into various posts so that I can ‘splain myself, and pass the time until my food needs to come out of the oven. […]

Maybe the trick is, don’t buy three things in bulk, smack in the middle of your busiest week in a while. Maybe thats the bit of intelligence that was missing from my half-assed planning. So, I thought, what the hell! I’ll just get peaches. A hell of a lot of peaches. My friend who splits […]

jalapeño poppers

When I received the cookbook Pioneer Woman Cooks, I made a few things from it and then lent it out to my friend who wanted to start cooking. She and her sister used it and made a few things (I believe) but I know for sure, she made these poppers. I’ve never known someone so […]

Have you ever bought “b-grade” tomatoes in bulk? Well, if you are planning on it, do it on a day that you will have time to do something with them SOON, don’t pick them up on the Wednesday of a ridiculously busy week and think that you can leave them “til you have time” because, […]

risi e bisi, herbed chicken, and cauliflower

Do you like risi e bisi? I do. I won’t lie, when I say it, it sounds more like “reees-beeesy” I’ve had this dish about a million times in my life, but it has been a long, long time since I made it. This is the recipe from my mom’s book. Everybody Cooks Rice. Does […]

spicy [ginger] molasses cookies

For a long time I thought that vegetable shortening was a no-go. It had no place in the house I grew up in, and though we were eating vegetarian, organic and non-processed for most of my childhood, and we made a bizarre transition from butter to margarine for a little while (much to my dismay) and then somebody smartened […]

sweet and spicy openfaced breakfast

Happy September! In just six days I will have crept a definite step closer to the big 3-Oh! Whatever. It’s 28. Who’s scared? Not I. I see it as an excuse to have my friends come over and hang out, eat good food, drink and enjoy each other’s company. I have yet to figure out when people are […]

  What do you do when you’re tired, slightly hungover, and can’t seem to make it all the way through your ice coffee without taking a break? Make something to eat. Something that isn’t too hands on. Something you can watch, or not watch and turn down and leave the cooking to join a conversation, […]
