A full weekend of cooking (15, 16, 17, 18, 19)

A full weekend of cooking (15, 16, 17, 18, 19)

When I write it all out, I cooked entirely too much over the weekend. However, a person’s got to eat. And apparently I get to write all about it, too. Thursday: I marinated some chicken for (#15) Spicy Yogurt Chicken. I wasn’t thrilled with this, […]

14: Fudgy Butterscotch Bars

[Edit: for the recipe I’ve made below, in the properly sized pan, see my post here.] After spending all afternoon looking at tax information, I was tired (read: anti-social) and lacked inspiration. When I told Alex what I thought I’d make, he said, “I don’t […]

13: Potato Torte with Cabbage and Bacon

13: Potato Torte with Cabbage and Bacon

This is probably my favorite thing to make with cabbage. I don’t love cabbage, but I’d make it again. (I suppose I do love bacon and potatoes.) It’s actually supposed to be Potato Torte with Cabbage, Bacon, and Cheddar, but since I don’t like cheese, […]

Bloggy blog blog?!

Bloggy blog blog?!

I’ve finally started a blog. About time, right? Well, I’ve actually had a few other blogs, but I thought I’d start again. At the moment, this blog is primarily about food. I made a New Year’s resolution to cook more and dine out less. More […]

Recipes 10, 11, and 12

Recipes 10, 11, and 12

One of my goals has to get rid of the few extra pounds that my husband and I have put on since college (7 years ago, by now). Luckily, my new subscriptions to Eating Well and Cooking Light have given me lots to read about. […]

9: Thick and Rich Drinking Chocolate

9: Thick and Rich Drinking Chocolate

I keep my house pretty cool in the winter, which means I often like to have a warm beverage in the evening. Most of the time this is tea, but I love hot cocoa as well. I like to make hot chocolate from scratch to […]

8: Black Bean Brownies

8: Black Bean Brownies

I love brownies, and I’ve wanted to try black bean brownies for a while. Ever since I printed out a recipe for it years ago, just to let it sit in a stack of other neglected recipes.  Knowing that I should make new (and exciting) […]

7: Almond-Honey Power Bars

7: Almond-Honey Power Bars

I’ve always wanted to try to make power bars or granola, but they’re always so high-calorie, and full of sugar or fat, that I decide not to bother. We were going out of town for the weekend, though, and I wanted to be sure that […]

6: Whole-Grain Waffles with Cherry Sauce

6: Whole-Grain Waffles with Cherry Sauce

I always forget how convenient a meal breakfast generally is to make. There’s absolutely no reason not to have something like pancakes for dinner. It’s relatively quick and nutritious, and you probably already have everything you need for it in your house already. I don’t […]

5: Cinnamon-Chocolate Meringues

5: Cinnamon-Chocolate Meringues

I’ll be completely honest – half the time I confuse meringues with macaroons. I’d never had either until I was an adult, so I find this somewhat understandable. I like macaroons, but somehow I thought that transferred over to meringues as well. I would still […]
