The Pioneer Woman Cooks - Ree Drummond The thing about my recent houseguest Ryan is that he’s an exceptional cook. Bottom line: the guy just flat knows what he’s doing in the kitchen, wrestling pretty much any ingredient to the ground with complete confidence. If he wasn’t a minister, I’d say he missed his calling. But…yeah. The other thing about my recent houseguest Ryan is…he doesn’t so much use recipes. The night before Ryan and his family left Oklahoma (and guess what? For dinner Ryan prepared homemade pasta and his version of a Bolognese sauce. Please bear with me on the quantities of the ingredients Ryan used. He started by grating carrots. I started by having a glass of wine. Then he peeled and halved a red onion. Then he diced up a good amount. Then he sliced and diced a HUGE boatload of garlic. Lots of olive oil went into the Dutch oven. When it comes to adding olive oil to the pan, we don’t deal in tablespoons around here. When the oil was heated, Ryan threw in the grated carrots. Then came the red onions. Intellesting.

Tequila Lime Steak Fajitas — Our Life In The Kitchen What to do with a London broil? I almost never buy a London broil because no matter how pretty they might look, especially when they’re on sale, I just can’t seem to get the hang of preparing it any way that isn’t just too tough.

Step 3: Fully Funded Emergency Fund | Don’t touch your emergency fund, unless you are truly having an emergency! The third step in Dave Ramsey’s plan for getting your financial life in shape is a fully funded emergency fund. The definition of a fully funded emergency fund is 3 to 6 months worth of expenses in an easily accessible account. Why Do You Need a Full Emergency Fund? Some people believe that having a small emergency fund of $1000 or so is enough, as long as they have assets like a 401k to tap into if they run into trouble. My family found out about the importance of a large emergency fund a few years back when my husband lost his job. When you have 3 to 6 months of expenses tucked away, you have the freedom to wait for a good job. You don’t want to be tapping into your 401k to pay for an unexpected surgery or hospital stay. What is a Fully Funded Emergency Fund? It’s not 3 to 6 months of your salary. Deciding whether to fund your emergency fund for three months, six months, or somewhere in between can get tricky.

StumbleUpon Life! By Greg Henry You know I have been a fan of StumbleUpon for several months. But like so many of these social networking tools I have come to find that I was not really taking advantage of all it has to offer. In the food specific blogworld, sites like FoodGawker, Photograzing and TasteSpotting can indeed drive traffic to your blog. Facebook is great for bragging rights and announcing new posts and reconnecting with your high-school BFF. Twitter is at least for “readers”. To me StumbleUpon is an amalgamation of all these social media outlets. But like the FoodPhoto sites, Twitter and even Facebook to some extent, if you only use StumbleUpon to layer votes onto yourself, or push your own material into the queue; then you will lose the interest of other stumblers and cause your own stumbling “power” to become lessened over time. So if you think the point of StumbleUpon is simply voting up your own posts, you’re quite mistaken. The basics of StumbleUpon are these: Skelliwag’s Tips: “1. 2. 3.

makes » recipe: ice cream cake (but not like you think) If you’ve been following along, you’re probably aware that I collect cookbooks. Specifically, cookbooks created by New England civic organizations between 1950 and 1980 for fundraising purposes. With yard sale season in full swing, I find myself solvent with new recipe ideas, among them one I found in this vandalized and water-damaged collection. The picture on the cover somewhat suggests the architecture of Calvary Baptist Church in Easthampton, but I bought the book in Millbury and it has no date (I’ve never been to that Church, I just tried to do some due diligence in my googling). And hey, no cake flour or fancy measuring required, because we’re using cake mix. I let my ice cream soften by scooping it up into small chunks and letting it sit a few minutes. The recipe calls for greasing & flouring a tube pan. After 4 minutes of beating, the batter kinda just looks like . . . well, melted ice cream. She was right. Preheat oven to 350o.
