My kids love Chicken Clagiving night.  That’s what they named our version of not Thanksgiving – with Roasted Chicken, Gravy, Homemade Stuffing, and Mashed Potatoes.  The key to stuffing (or croutons if you’re making those), is to have your bread thoroughly dried out.  This is almost never a problem for me since I’m inclined to buy […]

Thanksgiving is truly one of my favorite holidays.  I love the food, the break from school or work, and the true opening night to the holiday season.  I love a party, and when are there more parties to attend than the holidays?  Nearly all of my Thanksgiving repertoire can be found on my website in […]

Italian Parsley and I are having a great love affair.  It’s magical.  We should all eat more.  With olive oil, in mass.  Last night I cooked some quick Turkey Tenderloins with a fresh and bright chimichurri.  Turkey tenderloins?  What’s that you say?  Yep, they’re found in your grocery, though a simple turkey breast bone in, […]

College Football Season is a mere one day away.  Tomorrow there will be live football back on the air.  Since we have a Duck in the family now, I’ll probably be watching the Oregon game tomorrow.  And Utah is playing tomorrow, too.  Since they’re still pitching a fit about the BCS results, I’ll have to […]

I finished my 24th vampire book I’ve read in the last six months today.  All this time, I’ve kept wondering why the vampires haven’t sought me out yet.  I have a sneaking suspicion it may be due to the amount of garlic I eat.  Vampire tales are mixed on their interpretation of their supernaturals ability […]

Tonight’s Recipe: Homemade Tacos This homemade taco meat is very simple and can be the base of a multitude of meals. I think Rotel is available nearly everywhere these days, but if you can’t find it in your grocery, let me know. I am pretty sure my sister told me it’s hard to find in […]

Tonight’s Recipe: Homemade Lasagna Lasagna is another recipe that’s great for sharing. Making 2 isn’t really any more work than making one. Plus, you can pre-make it, then leave it in the fridge for up to 48 hours then cook or freeze it up to 2 months, then cook. It’s comforting food that reminds you […]
