Several of the food blogs I read participate in a cooking group called Craving Ellie in my Belly . They are cooking through Ellie Krieger's The Food You Crave - a book I mentioned before after borrowing it from my library. I don't own it[...]
There are some days when I crave meatballs, but I do not crave the fat content contained in most recipes.
Not that I am afraid of fat. Quite the opposite, I adore fat, but some nights I want something a little lighter. That, however,[...]
(I apologize for the delay in getting a post up this weekend. The power went out on the mountain and, well, the "watch embarrassing or heart-breakingly sweet childhood home footage of your husband" night turned into a lovely chitchat[...]
In an effort to eat healthier I?ve been on the lookout for low calorie meals. Because we?re in the middle of gutting a condo down to the bare walls and dust and dirt is everywhere (this is why I'm not out and about as much lately as I'd like),[...]
As a part of my experiment with Bisquick GF mix (see my review here ), I decided to make some quick sandwiches out of them for dinner. For the pictures of this recipe, you'll see that I use biscuits made from Bisquick. Instead of Bisquick GF[...]
I've had a rough week so there's a shortage of post instead of my normal three I've stretched out 1 post into 2. Last weekend we went to Corpus for mother's day and was able to see my grandparents. On Saturday my grandmother went into the[...]
While basking in the brief respite of the weekend, I got into a discussion with a couple of friends about finding time to cook. Most of them, being students like me, usually resort to either eating cafeteria food (which is ultra expensive) or[...]
MMMMM tacos. I love Mexican and tonight’s dinner was perfect. I found this recipe on Cook’s Illustrated and was very happy with it. I did use gr turkey breast extra lean white meat in place of the lean beef and it was just as great at[...]
On "Black Friday" I try to stay home. I love making breakfast for the family and putting up the Christmas tree first. I think it puts things in a proper order in my mind. This particular Friday I made a recipe I had been working on this week. I[...]
Tuesday is coming to a close, and I'm pretty excited about it. A few updates; first, we went to see some new houses last night, with both Nick's mother and my parents. It was exciting, the big day is getting closer!! Also, a funny story.[...]
Another great twist on a summer grilling favorite! The add-ins to this turkey meat are excellent and give the meat great moisture! I especially loved the hint of apple taste in the mix-in.
The lemon mayo is great and is also great on turkey[...]
The day after Thanksgiving I tend to bag up some of my left-over turkey and freeze it.
I love knowing that I have, in my freezer, the means to make any number of easy weeknight meals. From pot pies to tetrazzini, frozen turkey meat is a[...]
I make paninis all the time now that I have an electric panini grill . Even though they’re really just a glorified grilled cheese sandwich, I get raves every time I make them for family and friends. This particular recipe is a good[...]
Fast and flavorful, these Asian-inspired turkey meatballs are made with basic ingredients and are perfect for a weeknight meal. The meatballs can even be made ahead and frozen, which is always a bonus for the busy cook!
Both my kids loved[...]
Pause for a moment. Take a deep breath.
I totally have your dinner covered tonight. You must make these turkey burgers, not only because they are incredibly simple, fast and delicious but because they take feta to a whole new level.[...]
