Not that long ago I saw a Facebook post showing zucchinis used as a boat for a variety of different concoctions. I have to admit it was a clever idea – an interesting way to avoid the tortilla. I tucked it away in my memory for a rainy day as just something interesting, and kind of cool, nothing more.
Since… Continue reading
I have to admit one of my favorite dishes is a gyro. I adore the meat and love the seasonings and the scrumptious cucumber and yogurt sauce. That said, the process involved in making gyro meat is a very complex and specialized process. So I’ve never really been able to make this yummy sandwich at home. That is until I… Continue reading
I’m about to get vulnerable. It probably won’t be the last time that I am this year. I am expecting a year of change and big pushes forward in all areas of my life and experience has taught me two things. 1 – whenever I set my mind to big pushes forward I will get push backs. Every action does… Continue reading
So you may have noticed that last Monday there was not a Monday Munchies. Well… that’s because I had been a little busy between holiday parties and holiday fun events, helping my mother with finalizing her house purchase and on a new health program (more about that in the new year but let me say its AWESOME)… Continue reading
Sometimes you just need simple. And nothing is more simple in my mind than couscous. It cooks up in about 5 minutes. You can add almost anything to it and change it from a fun and friendly side to a main entrée in seconds. Its definitely a staple in my pantry…and probably should go on my emergency shelf.
So when… Continue reading
Okay…so I am late on my post. Yesterday was a special day for me. Santa came early and delivered a brand new Samsung Chef Collection refrigerator! Have you ever had a new fridge delivered when you already had another one in place? Any sympathy for me? I had two I had to deal with – one in the garage… Continue reading
I saw this dish in the Better Homes and Gardens Dinner on a Dollar magazine and just knew I had to give it a try. It looked so elegant and like something out of a Victorian novel when the ladies were getting together for tea. Then I went shopping and kid you not, each serving clocked in at less than… Continue reading
I happen to love Thai peanut sauce, especially on a barbeque spring roll. So when I saw this peanut-sauced veggies and noodles, I jumped all over it. I pretty much followed the recipe to the letter…and there are definitely some things I would change. Typically, I can say that the recipes I’ve tried out of the Better Homes and Gardens… Continue reading
I love a good taco. In fact, there is this little family run Mexican restaurant in my old stomping grounds where you can get the best street tacos for dirt cheap. I even love homemade tacos – crispy tacos. What I don’t like is the mess and the oil. When I ran across this beef taco pie recipe in the… Continue reading
I have to admit I am not the biggest fan of BLT sandwiches. All the mayo…not so yummy in my book. My mom and my husband. If it has bacon, then its all good. So I gave the Roasted BLT Salad in the Better Homes and Gardens Dinner on a Dollar magazine, I stopped to give it some pondering.… Continue reading
