I hate it when I have a good idea that spirals out of control. I made that spinach and blueberry salad recently and was so impressed with it that I wanted to, wait for it, turn it into a grilled cheese sandwich.
Let me break this down for you though, it’s actually a pretty small step [...]
Barley is a new experience for me. I really didn’t know what to expect when I picked up a pack from the store. It’s not something I ever remember eating, but I remembered seeing a container of barley at my brother’s place a long time ago. Coming across it this time I thought it was [...]
I love salads. Mixed baby greens are generally what I go for, but I can never get enough of spinach. That tasty bitterness can go with almost anything. I also like blueberries. Fresh, tasty blueberries. And good balsamic vinegar. Check that out, I’ve pretty much just built this salad in front of you– With my [...]
Ah, I wish I had made carbonara before. It’s an excellent pasta dish because it’s rich and filling, but not as heavy as an alfredo. Don’t get me wrong, I like alfredo too and will sing its praises another time, but carbonara has so much more flavor.
Speaking of flavor, I couldn’t simply use just the [...]
Grilled cheeses might be one of my favorite and easy foods to make. Well, that and beans-on-toast. And chili cheese dogs. And easy pizza. And chocolate chip cookies. And brownies. And mac and cheese. OK, OK, so I have lots of favorite foods, but grilled cheese has quickly become a new favorite. (wow, that’s a [...]
…or a BTYABLT, you know, because initialisms are cool or whatever. Well, they probably aren’t, and this one is just silly. The sandwich, on the other hand, is anything but silly. Toasted bagel, sun-dried tomato spread, avocado, bean sprouts, bacon, and–actually, that’s it… If this sandwich was any bigger, you’d have to unhinge your jaw [...]
You never sausage a stuffed squash! Get it! sausage… saw such…
Oh, wow, where did everybody go? My readership just dropped.
Note to self: Terrible puns are just that: terrible.
Second note to self: Unlike stuffing a post with bad puns, stuffing a butternut squash with Italian sausage that was cooked in a handful of fresh sage leave [...]
You saw my last post. I started it off by saying that I was not a fan of casseroles… until I tried that one. I was convinced that I had possible had a bad experience with casseroles at some point in my past and wanted to change my outlook: so I tried another. This one, [...]
When I think of casseroles, I tend to think of overly salty, soggy, overcooked recipes that call for cans of condensed Campbell’s soup. I should get that image out of my mind because this clearly is not that horrid mess. This is my kind of casserole: warm, tasty, filling, decent cheese broiled to a golden [...]
Do you tend to forget how awesome some foods are if you haven’t had them in a while? I do. I definitely forgot how awesome chimichurri was with steak until last weekend. I was over at a friend’s house and they grilled some beef and served it with chimichurri. Now, chimichurri isn’t unusual, but I [...]
