I’m patting myself on the back for this one. It is one of my absolute favorite creations and today I actually had other taste testers besides the husband. Taste testers who are open and willing to try new things and they LOVED it! Man I love cooking for people who actually like to eat.
I love playing tag! A Southern Grace got me this time and I’m glad she did. I haven’t posted any fun blog stuff here yet.
So, here it is, 7 things you didn’t realize you needed to know about me and food…
I just wanted to write a quick note about printing my recipes. I’ve been getting some comments and emails about adding a printer friendly version. And I’m happy to say, I don’t have too!
Let me explain….
I have a created this site to have… Read the rest of this post
Tonight, after work and then grocery shopping the toddler and I hit the kitchen. He was very willing to help and made his very own Polenta Pizzas (see below). :~)
Sometimes, I just don’t want to think or measure or worry about dinner. On those days, I use things like pre-made soups, spices mixes or even precut veggies from the grocery store. Tonight it was a package of dry onion soup mix and a can of French onion soup that saved the day. Keeping things like this in the pantry make it easier on the nights I don’t want to worry about dinner.
Who am I kidding? I always worry about dinner! ;~P
Sometimes simple is the way to go.
The husband actually ate all his veggies tonight AND I got an unsolicited compliment about them! I still can’t believe it!
After a long chili day I wanted a warm soupy dinner. That doesn’t sound right, but I’m sure you know what I mean.
A soup I had a few weeks back at a little local place inspired this dish. They had a stuffed pepper soup that was just simply amazing. It was comfort in a bowl. Such a simple idea, take the flavors and ingredients of stuffed peppers and turn it into a soup!
With all this sweetener talk, I thought I’d take my hand at making my own oatmeal. Not that I haven’t made my own oatmeal before but normaly, I rely on a pre-made packages that are chock full of artificial sweeteners like ones I use in Apple Pie Oatmeal.
As requested, a demonstration of the Meat Storage – Frozen Flat tip. I love when I get a suggestion. It makes it so much easier!
Of course, in addition to the meat storing, I babble on about a few other things as well. ;~P
About a year ago I was distraught to find that Trader Joe’s discontinued one of may favorite summer treats, their Southwestern Turkey Burger. I think they replaced it with some chicken burger but it’s just not the same.
A few days ago, a reader emailed me a question about Lemon Poppy Seed muffins and I couldn’t get the thought of them out of my mind. So tonight, after the toddler went to bed I hit the kitchen. I was hit by the baking bug! Weird, I know.
I’m calling this take 1 because literally this is my first attempt to make them. I based the batter on my Whole Wheat Banana Muffins and I winged the rest based on smell and taste. Read the rest of this post
Join me on my crazy hour after work. Don’t worry , the video isn’t actually an hour but I thought I’d invite you into my kitchen while I prepared a new quick side dish for dinner tonight. I totally winged it (I’m sure you can tell by the video).
I’m happy to report the dish was a success! Both the husband and the toddler asked for seconds and I barely have enough leftovers for lunch tomorrow!
