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

Once upon a time, I used to menu plan diligently. Every week, we, as a family, got together and I badgered them until we came up with suppers every day for a week or so. For the most part, we would stick to it. After a couple years, I confess, I got lazy about it.

Sausages and Lentils

I have always been a bit leery of lentils and actually have no idea why.  They aren’t offensive.  They’re basically beans in disguise – they soak up the flavour of whatever they’re cooked in….ooh, they’re tofu!  I very occasionally add lentils to a stew, but really as a filler, not as an “ingredient”, if that makes sense.

My laptop has crashed…..yet again.  Remind me to never, ever buy a Dell laptop again!  This is the 4th or 5th time in the past 6 months, I believe.  I admit that a lot of the problem is Windows, which, at best, is an unstable, badly vetted space & memory hog, but since I all have is

The very first quiche I ever ate or made was one I found a recipe for somewhere that did not need a pie crust.  It was a Christmas morning and I wanted a breakfast I didn’t have to babysit.  Quiche fit the bill – stir some ingredients together and bake it – no monitoring needed.

I am having such a good time with my new cast iron braiser.  Every chance I get, I use it.  I’m sure the novelty will wear off eventually, but I’m not 100% certain.  It’s so much fun….I’m a kitchen nerd! It browns things beautifully, it holds heat and spreads it evenly, and it weighs a

We are still in the midst of a cold snap, so soup is on my mind all the time. It’s great for supper, great for lunch – warm, comforting, goes a long way, uses ingredients I have so I don’t have to go outside. Just before Christmas I bought a big bag of pre-cooked shrimp…then

Hamburger “Helper”

Once upon a when-my-kids-were-little, I would ask the question, “what do you guys want for supper”, and a little voice would answer (generally the mancub), far more often than I appreciated, “Hamburger Helper”. Sorry, Betty Crocker, but I hate that stuff. It’s bland and the sauce is plastic-y and no amount of dressing it up
