This weeks video is a little bit different. I’m heading out of town friday for a couple of days and there was just no way I could squish in a cooking video before I left. Instead, I decided to do a some Q&A with questions I have received from the site. Read the rest of this post
I guess you can call this a stir-fry but I don’t have a wok and I really steam the veggies so I’m not really sure what to call it!
I bought some fresh ginger this weekend, it was my first time. Normally I make stir-fry meals with ground ginger and that works out great but I wanted to try something new. I’m glad I did! The fresh ginger has such an awesome smell and it’s much easier to work with then I thought. Just a simply peel the skin off slice and dice like you would garlic.
I am planning on making your pumpkin muffins this week, and so I was wondering…Are there general rules to follow when substituting regular flour for wheat flour in a recipe? When you swap in wheat flour, does this change the amount of baking powder, liquid, or any other ingredients in the recipe? I have family recipes for pumpkin bread and banana bread and I would love to learn how to make them healthier with wheat flour. Thanks!
I can’t be the only one who lived of Ramen Noodles in college, can I?
Well they finally lightened them up and in a pinch they can be used to make a quick lite meal! Seriously! Check it out…
Let me confess right now, this is the first time I’ve every bought and prepared a tuna steak. So, yeah I’ll admit it, I’ve been kinda scared to give them a try at home. Recently I had an some Ahi Tuna at a Japanese restaurant and it was awesome! I’m also a HUGE fan for the tuna appetizer they have at outback.
I have tried searching the internets for this answer…but no dice. Do you measure food BEFORE or AFTER it is cooked? I tested this with some ground turkey, and it was 4oz pre cooking, and then it shrunk to around 3 after cooking.
A while back Kalyn posted a recipe for Egg muffins and it intrigued me. I mean, basically it’s a single serve frittata you could carry to work! Then I saw Giada make Mini Frittatas and I just had to make this idea my own (I only say that because I CANNOT make a recipe as is, it like a personality flaw).
So this morning, in attempt to get my eating habits back in order I decided to give them a try. Read the rest of this post
I received an “Ask Roni” email the other day from Deanna requesting shrimp recipes so when I saw them at the grocery store tonight, I thought, humpf, Why not?
So upon returning from the store I whipped up a quick marinade, let the shrimp sit for about 20 minutes while I put the groceries away and then I grilled them on skewers.
This was a complete impromptu lunch. I wasn’t even planning on posting it but it came out really good and the toddler loved it so what the heck!
Most of you know, I’m a bit pizza obsessed but I go through phases. For weeks at a time I’ll invent tons of home pizzas using what ever I have on hand as crusts (tortillas, pitas, english muffins) and sauce (tomato paste, tomato slices, pesto). Read the rest of this post
As I say in the video, this is an old favorite of mine. It’s fast, it’s easy and it’s good! ;~P The toddler had 3 bowls!! (well toddler bowls so that was about a full serving). He kept saying, “more, pwease.”
Tonight I defrosted some turkey tenderloins and planned to grill them but I had no idea what to serve as a side dish. I wanted to make something on the grill (I hate cooking in and out of the house at the same time. If I’m grilling I’m grilling everything).
So I pulled out every veggie in the fridge, made a marinade, pulled out the skewers and viola! Instant fun side dish!
I’m calling this an “idea” because the recipe needs some work. Then again, all my recipes are just ideas (and they probbaly all need some work). Do with them, as you will.
This one was the product of leftover spaghetti squash and some fresh ground beef I was separating and storing from my weekly grocery trip. I just got this vision of a Mexican inspired comfort meal.
