Every weekend David makes breakfast. Although his repertoire isn’t vast, what he does, he does very well. Including his biscuits.
These are very close to the biscuits David grew up on. His mother always made homemade biscuits, and they were delicious. But, like most women, she never measured anything. She simply added a dash of this and a sprinkling of that until the “dough looks and feels [...]
One of the things I love most about Autumn is the change in cooking. Typically, in the Spring and Summer, I cook lighter by grilling and using the fresh fruits and vegetables to make a beautiful salads. But in the Autumn and Winter, I break out the crock pot and make more hearty meals like stews and roasts.
Roasts are so easy in the crockpot, and the leftovers are tender and ready for whatever creation [...]
There are only a couple restaurants that, any time we visit them, you can be pretty darn certain we’re going to order the Spinach Artichoke Dip. For me, it’s a dip that can be done very well or very badly, with very little inbetween.
One of the restaurants that does it really well is California Pizza Kitchen. There’s just something about that bubbly hot dip that is just irresistible.
I have been meaning to make these all summer, and just never got around to it. While grocery shopping this week I, again, saw the big green tomatoes and decided to stop procrastinating and just do it.
And I’m so glad I did!
We love fried green tomatoes, and I have a great recipe for them using a cornmeal batter, but I thought I’d try something different this time. I found a recipe calling [...]
Every once in a while, I get carried away with a meal. This is an example of that.
Let me begin by saying that David cooks breakfast every weekend. Because I’m not one of those people, like my husband, who wake up starving, I don’t like to eat the minute I wake up. But, because he does, he makes breakfast on the weekends.
Saturday morning rolled around, and David wanted something different [...]
As you know, David and I were just in Puerto Rico. So, this week, I thought I’d share with you a wonderful local favorite we discovered while we were there.
I don’t have the recipe, though I did try to get it for you, so I’ll just have to tell you about it and share pictures.
Monfongo is a fried plantain-based dish. From what I understand, it’s usually made with fried green [...]
Well, Melissa is still on vacation (they’re in St. Lucia today!) but she’s due back Monday.
Who thinks she’ll just stay and never come back? *raises hand*
See, I know Melissa, and I also know her 2 week vacations have a way of turning into 3 month vacations!
But, no worries, she always comes back.
Seasoning Mixes, Marinades, and Backyard Brews! Oh, My!
