When I was a little girl one of best memories I had when it came to dinner was ‘Hobo Packs’. It was silly but I loved how they made it feel rustic, simple and cozy like being around a campfire without the need of being outside, cold and overtaken by the campfire smoke. As I grew, I loved how simple… Continue reading
So the other day I was looking at my leftovers and came up with a new garlic free recipe that was delicious if I say so myself. It is on the healthy side as the only high fat and high calorie items are cheese and olive oil drizzle (which is a good fat in moderation). The cheese was actually… Continue reading
I’ll admit that this was suppose to go out on Monday as my Monday Munchie BUT issues with a deadline of today kept me from getting it out. I know in reality it may never happen but I sure would love for things to clam…whoops….calm down just a bit.
So I am a self-confessed foodie! I love to eat, I… Continue reading
Almost all year round Southern California has enviable weather…70 degree Decembers, mellow falls and springs and even in the summer its not usually that bad. But this year we have gotten extremely rare high humidity that could compete with my youthful North Carolina summers and high… Continue reading
The other day I was working on something…can’t remember what…and had Diners, Drive Ins and Dives in the background for white noise. All of a sudden my taste buds started going in to overdrive. Featured was Foreign and Domestic, an Austin, Texas restaurant, and one of the owners was making her famous gruyere popovers. I LOVE popovers but have not… Continue reading
Okay, so I fully admit that these are by no means authentic enchiladas but they are definitely yummy in my book. Plus, like many of my Monday Munchies, they are super easy to make. Total cook time, including prep, is less than 45 minutes (prep time 15 minutes or less and cook time about 30 minutes).
1 to 2… Continue reading
Despite that I have to say the one food I could probably eat every single day is battered and fried eggplant, otherwise known as eggplant fritters. They are a yummy and satisfying alternative to chips or French fries and can be pretty cost effective. And for the most part they… Continue reading
I wish I could claim this Monday Munchie as my own but the recipe belongs to a friend who happens to be an amazing cook. We were treated to it at her husband’s birthday dinner and what can I say other than I fell head over heels in love with it. Its a perfect pair to almost anything but awesome… Continue reading
I was looking at the temperature this morning and at 8:30am, it was a warm 76 degrees. And before anyone gets jealous, that just means one heck of a hot day was coming…in fact one heck of a hot week. Try 90 degrees on Monday, 93 degrees on Tuesday, 100 degrees on Wednesday, 102 degrees on Thursday and 96… Continue reading
So not that long ago I was sitting on the couch with my family watching Unwrapped on the Food Network and I got a major case of the munchies. (I should know better than to watch food TV hungry…almost as bad as shopping hungry.) They were making English Toffee at a factory followed by delicious popcorn… Continue reading
