I am forever on the hunt for crispy potatoes. I like them soft inside, but that outside should make a sound when you bite it. Tonight I tried something I saw on TikTok – the sheer volume of incredible ideas and recipes on that app is amazing. I regret to say, there are quite a

Once upon a time at Subway, the mancub didn’t want mustard on his sub….and from that I took that he didn’t like mustard – anywhere. Turns out, I was wrong. This frees up some restrictions – I figured he had to like mustard in some form – otherwise he could not be mine, but I

I’m not a prepper, I am, however, a person who stocks for a rainy day. When toilet paper was difficult to find or we were only allowed to buy one package, we had a stash. Not a big stash, but a stash of a package ahead of what we needed. So I buy canned goods,

I kept seeing these bags of peppers at Costco. I was curious but too wussy to buy them for $9.00 only to find that I didn’t like them. Then I saw my daughter’s Instagram feed and lo and behold, she had made dinner with some charred shishito peppers. Immediately…..”how were they?” “Are they spicy?” Her

I love sushi. Not raw fish sushi. Not fish eggs sushi. Okay, I love it when it’s not very adventurous. It saddens me to say that, but while I will eat many things, I only just got past not being able to eat chicken if I cooked it. Completely weird, I know. Anyway, love the

Let’s be real – this is basically Taco Hamburger Helper, but I have no idea how Betty Crocker feels about their name being used for food that isn’t their food….ain’t nobody got money for a lawsuit! This came about because I had emptied my freezer out and taken the proceeds to my ex. While there,

I hate to admit it, but this week, again, was a little less following the meal plan than I had hoped. Monday night was supposed to be a Ham & Mashed Potato Casserole….that got moved to Tuesday, and Monday ended up being junk food from Costco. The kicker? We went to Costco specifically for the

This is too good not to share. I think it would be equally good, if not better, using lemon. A warning, though….this is not a super fast recipe to make. It doesn’t take all day, but it is not on your plate in 10 minutes. The first time we made this, we discovered, emphatically, the

I hate to admit it, but my menu plan this week just went all catywhompus. I had the plan, and then some ingredients were M.I.A., or I had no interest in cooking. I suppose it was a strange week, weather-wise, and the job….wellllllll. Regardless of the reasons why, it got shifted and changed and it

This week’s menu plan was actually mostly dinners we always have. It was also a huge fail in that I forgot to take pictures of most things. Arghh! I did make panini bread, which I’ve never done before, but everything else except the chicken gyros has been done before. Then, turns out, I didn’t really
