beer battered fish n’ chips

November 12, 2012

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

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 […]

We were lucky, tucked up on a hill here in Boston, so close to the the water -link to picture is 1-1/2 blocks away from my aunt and grandmother’s house! Watching the tarps on the Tobin Bridge being battered by the whipping winds, streets already flooded and trees coming down around me as I headed home […]

Applesauce Coffee Cake

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 […]

  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 […]

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 […]

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

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, […]
