Got Tomatoes? Easy Tomato Sauce for Freezing

Aug 18, 2014

So.  I went on vacation.  It was quite lovely actually–we went to Washington D.C, then I went on to visit Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob houses, then spent a few days in Pittsburgh.  I’ve gotten to see quite a few American cities that I’d never been to this summer and I’ve loved...

Plum Mascarpone Tart

Jul 28, 2014

This is about the easiest dessert ever, unless you are just scooping a block of ice cream out of the cardboard container into a bowl, or perhaps eating Cool Whip out of the tub with a spoon.  It’s just a few ingredients, a few minutes, and BOOM!  You’ve created a nice baked good that...

Food Foto Friday–Chocolate Doughnuts

Jul 25, 2014

Sometimes, a chocolate doughnut with sprinkles is the only thing that’ll get you through that crappy meeting.  So go ahead and eat it.  

Nana Recipe Wednesday–Almond Salad

Jul 23, 2014

I can’t believe I haven’t made this salad already.  Somehow I’d never seen the card.  It has all the qualities I like in a recipe.  1) It’s easy.  2) I don’t really have to cook anything.  3) It’s easy.  4) It involves both fruit and vegetables.  5) It’s easy.  6) It tastes good. I...

How to make Sonora hot dogs; yes, you will need bacon

Jul 21, 2014

Besides doing a lot of traveling, this summer has also involved a lot of baseball, and therefore, a lot of hot dogs. In fact, because I was at the ballpark most of the weekend, I ate a hot dog every single day.  Maybe my plan to put Sonora hot dogs on the menu was...

Nana Recipe Wednesday–Lemony Lamb Kebabs

Jul 16, 2014

Exactly what does one make for dinner when you’re feeding your six siblings and their spouses, along with their many, many (and I mean MANY) offspring?  Let’s ask Nana. Nana sez:  Make lemony lamb kebabs!  They are super easy to marinate and thread onto skewers and because the meat is cut up into small...

Pickled Jalapeños

Jul 14, 2014

I love pickled jalapeño slices.  I unabashedly pile them onto ballpark nachos, put them on hot dogs, chop ‘em up and mix them with various condiments to use as spreads or dips, etc.  There’s just something addicting about the slight heat mixed with that good vinegary tang.  I usually have a jar in the...

London Bites

Jul 2, 2014

Hi again from London!  Just thought I’d give you a wee glimpse of some of the things we’ve been noshing on here and there, besides beer. Crisps, of course (AKA potato chips).  You know I love a good potato chip and England’s Walker brand (which I suspect is the same as Lay’s) has some...

Hello from London

Jun 30, 2014

Hi Readers.  I’m in London!  I’m with my son, who is getting ready to attend the University at Nottingham to study brewing over the summer. Yes, my child is majoring in beer.  I’m a lucky woman. I’ll try to post some food photos here and there, but probably no recipes till I get back....

Food Foto Friday–Pangea’s Caesar Salad

Jun 27, 2014

I have been craving Caesar salads lately.  I don’t know why.  I probably can count on one hand the number of Caesar salads I’ve ordered in restaurants since the wild Caesar salad craze of 1989–when it transformed from a nice, spare salad with a light anchovy and garlic dressing into a nearly unrecognizable bland...
