Days 4 and 5 Within the No-Shopping Suppers chapter of The Complete Quick Cook, there is a two-page spread called 6 Things To Do with Bottled Marinara Sauce. Yeah, bottled. You got something to say about that? Look, I’ve already explained. I buy marinara in a jar. Every now and then I make my own […]

My week of “No-Shopping Suppers” raged on with Parmesan-Crusted Pork Chops and Barbecue Meatballs. Here’s the thing about pork chops. I do love them, especially bone-in, and most especially the lovely grass-fed ones I get from my CSA. But at the same time, they also give me anxiety. In summer, I am all set. I […]

Oh, KerryGold, how I love thee! You know the one – that fabulous butter I used in these amazing cookies. The cookies that I have a hard time getting a full batch out of because I have a little issue with eating the raw dough. Yeah, that stuff. Well, I was super thrilled when the […]

Slacker blogger here! Have you missed me? Let’s see if I can manage more than one post this week. No guarantees.

When I got home from picking up my CSA share last week, I have to say I was pretty overwhelmed with the bounty.  I wasn’t quite sure how I was going to fit it all in my fridge and I share my share with a friend! I decided I better grab something green and get […]

I’d like to highlight another food blog I love, Lauren’s Latest. Lauren always has creative recipes and so much enthusiasm it’s contagious! I want to make whatever she’s making. So, last week, I did! Lauren posted these really tasty looking Grilled Chicken Wing & Blue Cheese Wraps last week on Wednesday and I just happened […]

Today’s Food Memory comes from fellow Big Summer Potluck attendee Jennifer of Bread and Putter.  I had no way of knowing at the time that Jennifer and I would become bff’s on Twitter […]
