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

So….the saga of my laptop and the aftershocks of the last crash continue. I used an external hard drive to create a boot disk so I could reload windows onto my laptop and resurrect it. That did work. What I failed to remember (and I’m a former tech geek, so I should have) is that

My mom used to make these when I lived at home….I don’t remember if they were for special occasions or just because. Knowing my dad’s love of dessert and such, probably both occasions were reason enough to make them. I rarely make the tarts, though. I don’t like making pastry. I now am able to

It finally rained here. It’s been screaming hot for what seems like months – bear in mind, we have snow starting in September and not ending until March or April, so we are far more accustomed to cool or cold temperatures than hot. My lawn was brown in the front yard (no shade) and my

This Green Mexican sauce showed up at my house one day and sat for a few weeks. I would see it in the cupboard and think, “I should make a burrito bowl or something with that”….and then I would forget about it again. Another couple days would go by, I’d see it again, and go

The scent of watermelon, cucumber, parsley and the stem of a tomato – all say summer to me. When Target was in Canada, trying to take over the retail market, they had a hand soap that was tomato vine scented. I was terribly upset when it was all gone. I like to get tomatoes on

It sounds weird, I know, but it’s really good. It’s supposed to be called a Big Mac salad, but I feel Big Mac has some very definite non-healthy feelings attached to the name. I occasionally indulge in the Mac of the Big size, and I have no guilt about it. They’re awesome. An indulgence, but

I’ve had a sort-of-like/hate relationship with sloppy joes. How is it that every child knows about sloppy joes – they have them at someone else’s house or something and then you get tormented until you make them? I used to take the shortcut and use the can of Manwich – which I hate (sorry Hunt’s).

I’ve never had this. I have heard of it, it’s basically the stuff of legends. I thought it was really difficult. It actually is not. I’m finding that about a lot of foods – because they are so good and so classic, they seem like they should be very difficult to make. They often take

I told my daughter she would get half of what I made, but I’m not sure there will be any left by the time she gets back from her holiday. I made it, it tastes really good and a bit milder than the night I made the paste, so you know I have to use
