Years after she passed away, Julia Child is once again the talk of the town. I went to see the movie Julie and Julia this weekend, and quite enjoyed watching Julia Child's larger than life personality artfully brought to life by Meryl Streep. What I love about Julia Child has nothing to do with French cooking, really. It is the way she grabbed life with both hands and simply went on to do whatever she felt like, without being self-conscious in the least. V and I have spent so many lazy Saturdays going about our chores with the TV tuned to PBS in the background.
I know Thanksgiving and the holidays are just around the corner but I have to confess, the thought of sweet potato casserole at the dinner table makes me cringe a little. Found most often cloaked under a layer of sticky sugary marshmallows, the poor things become hopelessly lost, just too sweet for their own good and cloyingly so. Instead, what if we contrasted the naturally sweet root vegetable with some bright and savory flavors? I think it’s time to give sweet potatoes a makeover, don’t you? Let’s free them of their sugary sweet shackles and give them a new look. While I’m happy to take mine oven roasted with a nice pat of butter on top any day, just a few well chosen ingredients can take them from good to glorious.
When I saw this recipe in Cook's Country , I knew this would be a home run with Ryan. Meatloaf and burgers are some of Ryan's favorite foods and since I don't make either very often they have risen to special treat status. While I was a bit hesitant about this dish (since I don't particularly like meatloaf or burgers), I was pleasantly surprised in the end. I preferred BBQ sauce to the extra ketchup and the zing of some jalapenos, but Ryan was happy with these "burgers" just the way they were. This recipe said it originally made four burgers, but that seems impossible to me.
I make my freezer meals 2 ways. One way is to just make them all in a 2 day process. Compile my list, shop, and do meat prep.
This dish has a funny name, but as a child it was one of my all time favorite meals. I think all kids love this meal. I make my freezer meals 2 ways. One way is to just make them all in a 2 day process. Compile my list, shop, and do meat prep.
I make my freezer meals 2 ways. One way is to just make them all in a 2 day process. Compile my list, shop, and do meat prep. Then the next day I assemble them. The other way I like to do it is over the course of a week or two. I buy the ingredients enough to double the recipes, then I make one for dinner and just double it and put one away in the freezer.
Crave a veggie burger. One with Panko-crusted edges - infused with tender sweet potato and creamy, rustic white beans. Tall stacked on a toasted grain bun - crisp romaine leaves sprawling out the sides. Lime green avocado. Dijon.

These little rolls make great appetizers if you’re watching a sporting event. The original recipe called for egg roll wrappers, but the grocery store was completely out. I had to make a game time decision to either use wonton wrappers or go to a different store. Since I’m lazy, I went with the wonton wrappers. It worked fine, but it would probably be a lot faster and easier with egg roll wrappers. James and I had to individually fill all the wonton wrappers and carefully roll them up.
