Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

Are these authentic? I am pretty certain not. Are these tasty? Yes, yes they are. Are they quick to make? They don’t take forever. These homemade tortillas are simple ingredients, easy to mix up and simple to cook. They’re about 10 minutes to mix, 15 minutes of resting time and then cooking time. With two

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

My furnace died a week and a half ago. 11 days it took to get a new one in and hooked up. I truly wish I owned my house and wasn’t relying on someone else to do & fix things. When I initially called in the problem with the furnace, the exhaust fan on the

I have fallen deeply in love with my air fryer. To an extreme degree. It heats way faster than a regular oven. It’s convection. It has a load of room in it because it has 3 shelves. It’s amazing. Last week, I made Shake ‘n’ Bake pork chops in it (don’t judge, that crispy coating

This soup was a happy accident. I started out making Tuscan Wild Mushroom soup and didn’t have any sun-dried tomatoes (WHAT?!) and some other things required by the recipe, and then I wasn’t in love with the flavour of what I did have, so I oomphed it up a little. Ingredients: 1 bell pepper 2-4

No, there’s no actual steak….it’s basically a burger with no bun but plenty of gravy. Doesn’t matter to me, though, it tastes really good and that’s what I want from my food. Flavour! This is a comfort meal component for me. It’s a hot meal on a chilly evening. It’s simple ingredients. It’s inexpensive ingredients.

I had a plan – shortcuts all the way. I was going to the grocery store after work, going to grab a few things for a dessert I want to try and, while I was there, I was going to grab a jar of pasta sauce and a loaf of French bread or a couple

I have tried making these before and they didn’t overwhelm me….but having cooked many different types of potato dishes since then, I’m pretty sure I messed them up and blamed the recipe and not the cook, so I’m trying them again. I have high hopes! These are named after a restaurant in Sweden that first

I have to admit it – I make my own sun-dried tomatoes. Whenever I can’t get through the tomatoes I buy before they start going soft, I either toss them in the freezer (whole) or I slice them up and put them on the dehydrator for a few hours. When they’re done, I put them

I started out thinking I was going to make alfredo pasta, then I thought I’d add shrimp, then I decided not to have alfredo, then I decided I wanted garlicky lemon shrimp with pasta, then the recipe I was following called for spinach and the bag I had in the fridge….nope. So that changed that
