I remember vividly reading a recipe that contained panko bread crumbs, and I remember vividly that I was nursing my second baby, and I remember vividly that I was hormonal and desperate, and the next thing I knew I was ordering panko bread crumbs from some market in Chelsea that the magazine recommended. On the phone, of course, because although I had a computer at the time, I certainly wouldn’t have been cool enough to use it to order panko bread crumbs.

New Mexico Style Calabacitas Recipe This is the time of year that zucchini starts showing up on your doorstep. Your friends and family have a garden, their squash and zucchini plants are prolific and these well meaning folks are running out of workmates and neighbors to give it to, so they drive around town leaving it at doorsteps when no one is looking. I use to dread it, but now I love to use them to make calabacitas, a southwestern dish that is often served here in New Mexican restaurants as a option to the usual rice and beans with your entree. So if you are sick of making zucchini bread, try this recipe for a great side dish in the summer.

Thanksgiving Stuffing Recipe [donotprint] With Thanksgiving fast approaching, I want to share my mom’s Thanksgiving stuffing recipe with you. She’s been making this for as long as I can remember and it’s one of the most anticipated dishes I look forward to eating Thanksgiving day. With every bite it takes me back to my childhood when I would watch her in the kitchen make her classic stuffing (or dressing ask she would call it). I would sneak small handfuls of dried croutons until she would cut me off because I would have eaten through the entire bag like potato chips if she hadn’t.

Usually the reason is because we are very busy and don’t have time to plan and cook meals for the week. About a year ago I had prepped 14 freezer meals. They were not crockpot meals though. It took me about 6-8 hours of cooking meat, chopping vegetables and doing everything that needed to be done to get the meals prepped. I did this twice (two weeks in a row) before quitting saying that it was too much work.
