Sourdough Bread Internet recipes are not my friend. I’m sure the people who write and post them are nice, well-meaning people. I’m sorry, I lied. Actually, I’m sure most of the recipes I find online are written by evil, vindictive want-a-be cookbook authors. The exception to this rule is the blogger of the blog No … Continue reading Sourdough Bread from Start to End
Cooking. Some people like to cook. I like people who like to cook. I like reading their blogs, watching their shows, and best of all, eating their meals. Living vicariously should satisfy me, but every once in a while, I’ll read a recipe and think, ‘Wow, that looks so good. Why don’t I try to … Continue reading Cooking – I try I really do
Work in progress. . .... I have been a full participant in every area of my kid’s life. You name the volunteer task and I have done it—cheerfully. In fact, I think my arm pain is directly related to how fast and how furiously I have raised my hand to volunteer. So please don’t … Continue reading Snack Attack and Potyucks
Sisters and Brothers of the Internet, I am not a pretender when it comes to cooking. I fully admit my shortcomings and my failures, and I’m often humbled before those that can cook a tender pot roast. Hallelujah! Each night, before I fall asleep, I double bless the great cooks that grace my life … Continue reading Ice Cream Bread From Hell
I posted my Butter chicken recipe on Facebook...is it just me or did this thread head south? By the way, who is Con? Teresa: That sounds delicious. I'll have to try it sometime. You and Paula Deen could be great friends. 🙂 Katybeth: Paula Deen? I am guessing she is not a facebook friend? She … Continue reading Butter Chicken. Last Seen Heading South!
This recipe was better the second night when I tweaked it a bit. Okay, so I just added a little more salt and pepper, but tweak seems to be a word used a lot in the kitchen, and since I am on recipe number three, I gave myself permission to use it. I picked this … Continue reading Butter Chicken-Spice and Chicken Married!
When I told someone about this dish, they said, “Oh, you are making Pasta Carbonara.” Well maybe, but the person who gave me the recipe called it Pasta with Pancetta and Leeks. Not sure it matters, but I am all for honesty and full disclosure. Really. This dish was pretty tasty. Since I did not … Continue reading Can We Cook? Pasta with Oscar Meyer Bacon and Leeks!
When Cole had his braces put on, the orthodontist said his mouth would be sore later in the day, so he should eat soft food. His mouth was sore so I asked, “Honey, what can Mom make you to eat that would taste good?” He replied, “Well, cold mango soup would be nice.” Mango soup? … Continue reading Help! Our Mango Soup Sucked!!
This week, when I called Cole for dinner, he enthusiastically responded with, “Really? Two nights in a row?” Clearly, I am spoiling him. The second night when I made enchiladas, he announced, “Mom, you don’t make a lot of things good, but your enchiladas are great.” I glowed. Our friend, Judy, fed Cole dinner on Tuesday … Continue reading The Whole Enchilada! Is Great!
This is not Cole's tart-this tart is standing in as a very close replica of Cole's tart while I figure out why Cole's tart picture disappeared. We have a kitchen because it came with the house. We have a kitchen because I married a man who loved to cook. We have a kitchen because the … Continue reading Cole Cooks-Tart Fit For King
