This started as a what-do-I-have-on-hand meal. I wanted to run get some feta, but we decided that would defeat the purpose and could be added to the leftovers later. It had a very nice flavor and was pretty simple. We ate it warm, but I’m pretty certain that it would be good cold as well. […]

Food can bring back memories, and memories can bring back food. I went to a wedding once, not one of my finer moments. The wedding was for one of my now husband’s cousins. At the time, I was busy having a nervous breakdown about the fact that I was still not engaged and being asked […]

I am suffering from a severe lack of creativity over here. Maybe it’s because it was my birthday last week, maybe it’s because my husband’s been sick, maybe I’m just bored. In any case, I’m feeling to lazy at the moment to really whip up any of my own inspired meals. On the upside, sometimes […]

Yesterday was our friend’s 30th birthday. Her favorite cupcakes are all strawberry, all the time. I like strawberries but generally stray from things flavored with/by strawberries.

Last night I had the pleasure of dinner by myself with a glass of wine and a book. This is *very* unusual and was most welcome. I’ve always enjoyed dining by myself. I like to go to restaurants by myself as well. Sometimes I really miss the days when I was working and I’d go […]

I don’t even remember hearing the word brisket until I came to college in the great state of Texas. My family has long been barbecue seekers and connoisseurs, but we tended to stick […]

Flank Steak With Herb Sauce

This was the week for revisiting recipes I’ve already blogged about. Maybe I just wasn’t feeling creative, but I think I just wasn’t feeling on my A-Game. In any case, we had a great week of food, and luckily all the repeats turned out better the second time around. In early March, I blogged about […]

I found time to get in touch with Robert Shimmin concerning my banana bread yougurt substitution experiment. If you followed that link, you’ll notice it takes me to my domain instead of the normal blogspot address. Now that I’ve gotten going with this blog, I’ve realized I really should have had it at my own […]

I wrote a post on Chicken Avgolemono back in March. I’m remembering not being pleased with the way my sauce turned out and more than likely due to a messed up bedtime during the point of critical mass. This sauce is really delicious but takes focus and concentration like a gravy. Actually, it doesn’t so […]

So you know you spend too much time in the grocery store when… Last week I got busted by the Kenneth type grocery sacker doing a little dance to the bad elevator mix in the laundry detergent aisle. Our neighborhood grocery is two stories, so while I was alone in the aisle, “Kenneth” was looking […]
