I once made the driest pancake in the world. I can see you sitting at home, staring at your computer screen, and scoffing at my bold statement. Driest pancake in the world?

Oh yes, that’s what I said. My worlds are colliding, right here on the kitchen table. I had seen this around. At first I thought it a little over the top. But really, who am I kidding? I eat cookie dough.

If you have kids, chances are you often have pizza. Mine seemed to have been born loving it. Fortunately, they don’t discriminate between takeout and homemade pizza, and so I can control what goes into it. Once you get the hang of making your own dough it’s easy to mix up a batch when you get home from work and let it rise while you change and play with the kids and get ready for dinner – then you can roll or pat it out (kids love this part too), top it and cook it in a hot oven or on a preheated grill in minutes.
Why spend a lot of money this summer on condiments from the grocery store that are, in most cases, loaded with corn syrup, artificial flavors, and preservatives? It’s easy to make your own ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, and more right at home with ingredients you probably already have. Here are a few simple recipes for these favorite summer cookout staples: Homemade Ketchup Ingredients: 1 (28-oz) can whole tomatoes in purée 1 medium onion, chopped 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 tablespoon tomato paste 2/3 cup packed dark brown sugar 1/2 cup cider vinegar 1/2 teaspoon salt Directions: Blend tomatoes and purée from the can in a blender until smooth. In a heavy 4-quart saucepan, cook onion in oil over moderate heat, stirring, until softened (about 8 minutes).
Who doesn’t love a good grilled cheese? And, I know it’s totally Ameeeerican to make the classic: American cheese, mayonnaise and bread. But, why not change it a bit and use REALLY fresh and natural ingredients?!?!? Love it! There’s nothing more delicious than fresh and homemade ingredients.
(photo courtesy of RecipesToRunOn.com) Sometimes the best meals come from a combination of two different cultures. I am Italian and grew up eating lots and lots of pasta. I didn’t really start eating Mexican food other than (gasp!!) Taco Bell until I was a little older and realized how simple and full of flavor Mexican cooking could be.

By kellie.bright on Aug 14th, 2011 For a fun history lesson on Northern Thailand, simply sit down and enjoy a meal. The complex fusion of flavours, aromas and techniques is a perfect reflection of its past, an area once ruled by warring empires. The cuisine of Northern Thailand is a melting pot of different cultures, thanks to sharing a border with both Myanmar and Laos. Many of its culinary elements are also strongly influenced by Burma and China .
Roasted potatoes are pretty much my life. I’ve been told that I make one mean batch of roasted potatoes, and so I feel like it’s my civic duty to share the recipe with you today. There really isn’t anything that crazy that goes into these potatoes but I guess they are pretty much like crack. People, including my boyfriend, just can’t get enough of them. I make big vats of these on the weekends so we can use them throughout the week. And without fail, they disappear by Wednesday or Thursday.
In the realm of Scalloped Potatoes, this recipe is the winner . . . at least in my book. It’s a Family Favorite. We make these for almost every holiday dinner, and in between.
