Roasted Smashed Potatoes. Beef with Snow Peas. This is not a Thanksgiving recipe.

Beef with Snow Peas

I repeat: This is not a Thanksgiving recipe. You’ve probably already figured that out by now. Pancake Doodles. Strawberry Margarita Jell-O Shots. When thinking of Super Bowl foods strawberries don't usually make the cut.

Strawberry Margarita Jell-O Shots

However... mix the strawberries with a little tequila and turn them into a margarita and you are getting closer! With our sunny Citrus Blush already mixed and in the pitcher we weren't really in need of another cocktail, but when I came across these cute little shots I couldn't resist putting them on my Super Bowl Extravaganza Table. Hollowed out strawberries work as a vehicle for a Jell-0 concoction of strawberry gelatin, tequila and a touch of Grand Marnier. Garnished with cute little wedges of lime these little shots are absolutely adorable! Strawberry season here in San Diego is a tad behind schedule and I had a bit of trouble finding those beautiful, plump and bright red berries, but we made do with the Farmer's Market offerings and found some that were good enough.

The gelatin is mixed with water, 4 oz of tequila and 2 oz of Grand Marnier.


Casseroles. Appetizers/Snacks. Drinks. Breakfast. Desserts. Plain Chicken. A few weeks ago we ventured out for our traditional Saturday lunch.

Plain Chicken

We decided to go to Another Broken Egg in Mountain Brook. We had eaten breakfast there once before and wanted to give the lunch items a try. I scanned the menu and quickly decided on the Big Rooster - grilled chicken, bacon and swiss. Individual Coffee Bags. Hi, I’m Cathe (pronounced the same as Cathy).

Homemade Calzone.

I wanted to make something to take on the road, but the contents of the refrigerator were saying PIZZA.

Homemade Calzone

Hmmm... pizza is not so portable. Grilled Balsamic Flank Steak. Yum / Love me some roasted vegetables! : red potatoes, russet potatoes, zucchini, red bell pepper, baby carrots, sweet potatoes, and whole garlic cloves dusted with parmesan for the last 10 minutes in the oven. Y~U~M. Potato pancakes, even better. It wouldn’tbeHanukah if I didn’t refresh my favorite, dead-simple potato pancake recipe.

potato pancakes, even better

But it wouldn’t make for a very interesting story if I told the same one every year; in fact, I think they get better with each try because I continue to tweak them ever so much. This year, after finally making peace with my cast frying pan (coincidentally, over an “apple latke”) I cooked them in there, and will use no other pan for them as long as I live. It is a browning genius, and even small amounts of oil resulted in no sticking whatsoever. My Name Is Snickerdoodle: Fabulous Food Friday #79. *EDITED* {For more about this recipe click here!}

My Name Is Snickerdoodle: Fabulous Food Friday #79

If you know me you know that I laaaaaaauuuuuuve a certain fast food restaurant that specializes in chicken...not cows...chicken. I was first introduced to it when my family moved to Utah. I was 17 at the time and totally into the mall. Yeah. Do you remember the mall?

Cauliflower Crust Pizza. A co-worker of mine is currently on a special diet and has been experimenting with several low-carb dishes.

One day a few weeks ago, she dropped by my office to tell me about a recipe she’d found – pizza crust made of cauliflower! Yes, it sounded a little strange, but I was definitely intrigued. Spaghetti with Sauteed Chicken & Grape Tomatoes Recipe - Skinnytaste. Delectable Foods / apple sandwhich with granola, peanut butter, and choco chips.

Penne with Roasted Asparagus and Balsamic Butter Recipe - Quick From Scratch Pasta. Recipe for Grilled Zucchini Pizza Slices. This idea of grilled zucchini used as a base for pizza toppings is one of those cooking ideas that swirl around in my head, and sometimes I'm never sure if I thought of it or saw it somewhere else.

Recipe for Grilled Zucchini Pizza Slices

I kept wondering how it would work to arrange a marriage between Grilled Zucchini and Val's Kid-Friendly Broiled Zucchini Rounds with Cheese, with the offspring having a little pizza personality, and when I saw Alea's Eggplant Pizza Bites on $5 Dinners, it convinced me to try it. Even so, this is only a recipe in the very loosest sense of the word, because anything you like on pizza could be cooked on top of a thick slice of grilled or broiled zucchini.
