Because Brown Goes With Blue

October 18, 2011

I am in a blue mood today.  And longing for some home-cooked food. Since I still don’t have a kitchen, you can cook for me. Think of me when you sink your teeth into something sweet. Or swallow something savory. Since blue foods are neither in season nor very appetizing, I am sending you...

We Traded Our 3-2-3 For An 8-1-8

We Traded Our 3-2-3 For An 8-1-8

All of my furniture is covered in saw dust. I am covered in saw dust. I wheel around a coffee cart like a flight attendant so that we can have “breakfast” each day.  Since our dinners are limited to delivery pizza or Baja Fresh, breakfast is our one shot at squeezing in a little...

Gluten-y

August 22, 2011
Gluten-y

I have been reading this book about how to be healthy and how everyone is doing it all wrong and so we have cancer and fatness and sadness and gluten-y (not to be confused with gluttony), and then I remembered this rant I wrote last summer.  And I am going to share it with...

Shaved Brussels Sprouts With Bacon

July 15, 2011
Shaved Brussels Sprouts With Bacon

We’ve been getting some cloudy, cool weather that reminds me of fall.  Don’t worry, it will be back into the nineties in August.  And in September.  But for now, we are enjoying the chill in the air. This kind of weather makes me want to eat warm veggies and comfort food.  Like brussels sprouts! ...

Get Your Eat On

July 2, 2011
Get Your Eat On

It’s the Fourth of July, ya’ll. Time to celebrate life in the good ol’ US of A. Fireworks are nice (sometimes), but patriotic holidays like this one are really about something more.  Whether we watch fireworks or not, what do we all do on July 4th? EAT. And drink a little, too. Because parades...

Bake n’ Broil Halibut

June 21, 2011

In the past month, we have been seated, handed menus, and then walked out of a restaurant several times.  Once, Scott and I were on a date and tried to go somewhere new, but when we got there and read the menu nothing looked good to us.  So we walked out and went to...

Coconut Cream Cake

June 10, 2011

So, I figured I wouldn’t leave you in the dark about what I was eating the other day.  I had the pleasure of creating a birthday cake for a friend, and while my cake decorating results were less than stellar, everybody loved the cake.  And I am sharing the recipe with you. 2 cups...

I Just Don’t Want to Stop

June 6, 2011

I hold the knife in my hand. Take it easy. Carefully, I push the knife forward and down. Exercise some self-control. At first there is some resistance, and then the knife cuts through easily. Just a little cut. One more cut, and then I slowly lift the piece out, still a bit cool from...

Where Are My Soy Boobies?

May 27, 2011

I was just interrupted for the fourth time in less than five minutes spent at the dinner table. This time it was for milk. ———- I want SOY milk, Mommy. Yes, I know. Not cow’s milk. Yes, I know. We don’t drink cow’s milk. I don’t like cow’s milk, Mommy. That’s okay. I don’t...

Apricot Glazed Chicken

April 29, 2011
Apricot Glazed Chicken

I made it back to the kitchen.  As it turns out, time away really does pay off.  After eating frozen pizzas and grilled cheese sandwiches for a week, I started craving some real food.  Then I dug in the pantry and the freezer to see what I had on hand, and voilà!  Apricot Glazed...

Frosted Coconut “Cupcakes”

April 13, 2011

Yeah, I know that I said my life is about more than just food, and that’s still true (although by the way I’ve been eating you wouldn’t know it), but last week really did a number on me.  And what’s the best cure for a case of the blues?  A pity party.  With cupcakes,...

This One Sticks. And Burns. And Sucks.

April 6, 2011
This One Sticks. And Burns. And Sucks.

Okay, I know I said I wasn’t going to write about cooking anymore, but this one is really more about making fun of stuff. It’s no secret that I love to cook.  Mostly because I love to eat.  But I also love the satisfaction of creating something that others think is good, and since...

If You Can’t Stand the Heat, Get Out of the Kitchen

April 4, 2011

I started this blog a little over a year ago.  As a self-proclaimed foodie, I intended it to be one of those food blogs for moms and anyone else who needs to eat.  (Obviously, I’ve got a lot more to write about than food.)  Since then I have written almost one hundred posts inspired...

All-Day Quiche

March 10, 2011
All-Day Quiche

With all the sickness that’s been happening at our house, accompanied by a chilly late-winter rain, I was craving something warming.  Something that looks and tastes impressive but doesn’t require much effort.  All-Day Quiche is just that.  An easy family recipe you can make on a weeknight that is also good enough to serve...
