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 […]

quesadilla – strip down version

April 17, 2014

I’m not sure why I’m still awake, or who this dude is after Jimmy Fallon- I haven’t been awake for the late-LATE show for an age and a half. Maybe it was the afternoon coffee followed by gym, cleaning and a second wind? I’m glad this late-late guy muted cause he looks just too awkward […]

roasted red pepper pasta sauce

I’ve got this ability to cook for about a zillion people even though it’s only been me and Mr. Julia eating on a daily basis. Sometimes the things that I really want to cook, or when I find a recipe that looks “too cool to ignore” they don’t always re-heat to then become a second meal, or […]

Recently I’ve noticed the serious lack of vegetables on our plates. This is our first summer without a CSA share in a few years, and sadly, it’s a noticeable difference. Since I couldn’t see spending the money this year on a share, lets chalk it up to the fact that there aren’t enough hours in […]

salmon with cheese orzo

  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, […]

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

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 […]

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 […]

salmon, herbed basmati and asparagus

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 […]

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, […]
