Believe me, you’re going to be all over this insane level of cuteness. Instructions and pictures after the cut.
With my sea creature-loving son turning six earlier this month, I had to show him the recipe I’d stumbled upon in my Pinterest travels: Sharknado Cupcakes. He laughed, and immediately requested that I make them for his classroom treat.
Well, not with your mind, but with nothing but an oven and some time. No marshmallows or brown sugar needed. Butter is always welcome.
This week, I was browsing foodgawker.com to find new recipe inspiration. I’ve felt like things in my kitchen were getting pretty redundant – lots of zucchini and lots of pesto and really gigantic portions of salsa were basically going through a systematic and constant rotation. When I found Cook’s Hideout Tomato Biryani recipe, I knew I […]
I spent a ridiculously long amount of time mispronouncing “bruschetta.” I was a fan of “bruce-shet-a” or “brosh-etta” or “really fancy toast for summer time nonsense.” To be honest, I’m still a fan of the last one, but at least now I know how to pronounce it vaguely more correctly – bruce-ketta. But, you know, if […]
I wrote about pesto way back when I first started writing here, which really wasn’t even that long ago since my Perseph-a-versay falls right near the Super Bowl. Anyway, I received some excellent comments with new pesto recipes and now I have a new go-to when it’s not basil season.
When it’s cold out, warm food that’s warm in both temperature and spiciness is the best there is. The double-whammy of warmth makes it the most bang-for-your-buck dining option. And with the inviting smell of the coconut and curry and the cheerful color of the veggies, this dish is just right for January. And February. […]
So even though I doubt whether or not this merits a recipe, the guacamole hotdog is a thing of beauty. It’s actually quite elegant, and I am using the mathematical definition of elegant here. The cool, creamy guacamole serves as the perfect complement to the hot and salty hotdog. Personally, I go for the veggie […]
Now, when I say “lazy” I mean easy as hell, and I also mean pretty hands-off. It might be called cheating, but for those of you for whom time (or rest) is of the utmost importance, here’s your guide, and the last in this series, to a great Thanksgiving meal with as little effort as […]
Overall, I am not a fancy person. I don’t fully understand garnish, and artfully arranged sauces that look like stretched out, abstract sharks circling my dinner do nothing to entice me. At the same time, I love food and eating, so this six-ingredient pie that takes minutes to make is right up my alley.
Pickles! Just reading the word makes my mouth water. Every year I entertain the idea of canning and pickling, but I’ve yet to jump in and do it. When living in Oklahoma, I was introduced to the wonder that is pickled okra, a delicious snack during the summer months, and would have to stop myself […]
We all have days when we’re lazy with our food. At least that’s what I tell myself when it’s 7 p.m. on a Friday and I am tired and grouchy and desperate to make a meal that takes almost no work, skill, or imagination.
In this week’s veg* food post, we’re going to get leafy green and highly scientific. Kale is a wonder-green that’s jumped into the public conscious relatively recently. While some find its luxurious folds enticing, others are intimidated by its unique taste and overwhelming vitamin load. No matter where you stand, let me show you how […]
So California is starting to have beautiful moments of spring, and with each sunny day, I get less and less inclined to make heavy, wintery foods. I am not talking smack on those carby bits of glory, but y’all know that eating a big bowl of mashed potatoes when it’s warm and sunny is less […]
