Yes, I probably should have made this for Mardi Gras, but I didn’t think of it in time. Besides, there’s absolutely no reason not to eat Cajun food every chance you get! The jambalaya recipe is adapted from Gulf Coast Cooking by Virginia T. Elverson; my dad used to make it, though I haven’t cooked up a batch […]
I like chicken and dumplings. My husband likes chicken and rice. What to do? Carb compromise! This is a versatile dish perfect for the pickiest of eaters (such as me and my husband) that’s warm and comforting. Cooking in my house is about guidelines, not rules, and if you don’t like it, don’t eat it. […]
After watching one food-related show or another (they all kind of blur together after a while), I got it in my head that I needed to have wine braised chicken in my life. I’d be willing to bet you’ve had a moment or two like that. It was all I could think about for a […]
No time to make dinner? Hold on! Check out this Superfast Stir-fry recipe. Not even the Flash could make it faster.
Beans, beans the magical fruit! We all know that rhyme, right? But beans are pretty awesome. They have both protein and fiber in them and make a great addition to any meal, just like they do in this dish.
I don’t know if it’s spring fever or what, but I’ve gotten way lazier about cooking lately. My motivation has just gone down the drain, and to combat it, I’ve started seeking out ridiculously easy recipes.
Two things you should know about me: 1) I’m a single mom, and 2) I’m broke. This means that most of the meals I make are cheap and quick. Throw in a diabetic teenager and a picky 4th grader and you’ll have a better idea of the challenges I face in the kitchen. But one […]
Burritos are one of my favorite comfort foods. Growing up in Texas it was always easy to find good Tex-Mex, but now that I live in New York I’m pretty much stuck making my own. But with a recipe this easy and tasty, I don’t even mind! Since I use a slow cooker, there’s very little […]
It feels like it was a long time coming, but summer is finally here! And when it’s summer, I start looking for foods that require as little heating-up-the-kitchen as possible.
Guys, I know this may come as a shock to you, but this bacon-based food-like substance? It actually tasted pretty damn good! Granted, it’s probably the most artery-cloggingest thing (possibly tied with the Savory Meat Loaf) I have made so far. I have outlined my reasoning for this statement in the form of a short […]
As some of you know, I have been in a food rut regarding dinner. This happens to me with relative frequency, and I am always looking for ways to get out of the rut – and frequently failing and eating Teddy Grahams for dinner. But this week I have had some success with new recipes, […]
I like sharing recipes. In fact, if you knew my real name, had my cell phone number, or follow my tumblr, you would find that I live blog my meals every now and then.
