A repeat offender in the lede-burier category, let me begin with what matters: this is absolutely my new favorite quick and obsessively delicious way to prepare mushrooms. And now, a story. Once upon a time, I was a vegetarian who loved going to steakhouses. A friends birthday would approach and out of kindness to me, they’d start talking about gathering friends at a restaurant that had vegetarian options and I’d beg them to go to a steakhouse instead. “It’s your birthday!
zucchini fritters $2.08 recipe / $0.35 Last week, when I made my Lasagna Roll Ups , I had a tough time deciding what sides to go with them. A salad is classic (so I did that with a homemade balsamic vinaigrette ) but I also needed something with more substance. I definitely wanted a vegetable so I looked at my little sticky-note full of "want to cook" items and saw Zucchini Fritters - BINGO.
Whenever the cafeteria in middle school served corn dogs, I was super psyched. And every time I’d go to the State Fair, getting a cotton candy and a corn dog was a total must. But nowadays, after having watched a lot of food documentaries, I kinda steer clear of them.
A few years ago, in the hot, hot summer, we had a big storm that knocked out power for over two weeks. They say it was a wind storm, but we all called it Hurricane Elvis. As it was summer, many people were away on vacation, had vacations planned, or just left town during the power outage. But I was a busy little event planner and had a wedding and a private event to plan and execute, so no leaving town for me. I lived in my hot, hot house with no lights and no air conditioning for the duration. My parents had two giant trees fall on their house, then breezily left for a planned trip overseas with the parting words “we expect the trees to be gone when we get back.”
Mexico’s population is predominately Catholic. That means that meat (with the exception of fish) must be avoided every Friday of Lent. My parents had to make arrangements at the restaurant to serve meatless dishes during this period.
Right now is probably one of the few times of the year when weather in the northern and southern hemispheres is roughly the same. Cool, but with the occasional gloriously sunny day. And the occasional stretch of really cold rainy days where all one craves is a wonderful, thick stew. I don’t have a solution for the rain, but this baked beef stew recipe will at least help you out in the “What’s for dinner?” category.
M artha and I go way back. Years and years, actually. And somewhere along the way, we had a bit of a falling out.
If you really want to put a smile on TheHusband's dial, there are a few things you can do. Agree to watch a "boy" movie with him, ply him with a catalog* or two, (preferably showcasing the newest electronics) or treat him to one of his favourite meals: Hotdogs - with real German sausages or good old cheesegrillers (the cheesier, the better) Pizza - homemade or takeaway, either will do Chinese takeaway And if Chinese takeout is your chosen bribery tactic smile generator, there is one dish that will warm TheHusband's heart above any other. Chow Mein. Whether it's beef, chicken or pork is irrelevant, the thing that's non-negotiable is that unmistakably umami sauce coating the noodles.
You may have to excuse me for the teenybopper that is about to pop out during this post. You see, about 2 weeks ago, I had the wonderful opportunity to meet one of my favorite bands. A band whose music makes me smile, makes me dance and brings back memories. A band who is as inspirational and caring as people as they are talented musicians.
When looking for a tasty salad on the Internet I came across this one from Jehan Can Cook . It sounded perfect. I love all the ingredients and flavors used so I was really excited to try it. It was so quick and easy to make and tasted fantastic.
I have nothing against food that are fried in a vat of hot oil, I’m just against the vat of hot oil. If anyone were to accidentally burn any part of themself with that boiling inferno, it would be me because I am that clumsy. One time, I was doling out bowls of steaming hot soup so I had the ladle in my right hand and a bowl in my left.
I saw Tyler's Ultimate Chicken and Dumplings on The Food Network and I knew I had to make them! They looked so good I was willing to take on the mammoth task from scratch. If you do not want to make your own stock and cook your own chicken, feel free to skip the beginning of the recipe and go right down to making the veggies, sauce and dumplings. Next time, I will! I got a chicken, put it in a large Dutch oven with peppercorns, half an onion, a head of garlic sliced in half, some thyme and some salt. I brought it up to a boil but quickly turned it down to a simmer.

This is simplicity at it’s best. A leftover baked potato. Eggs, cheese, and bacon.
Yesterday was a huge day for me: I purchased cheese for the first time in 6 months. The Costco (yes, there’s really Costco here!) we went to had a decent selection of cheese, but a lot of it was really expensive and only came in gargantuan packages. I would have loved to get some gorgonzola, but 2 pounds seemed like a little much. So I sensibly opted for a large block of medium cheddar.
