Kabobs are the ultimate in traveling meals. You have your veggies and protein all in one convenient skewer, and you can eat it with one hand. I guess the only danger involved is that stick. Kabobs should have a warning label: Not intended for children under the age of 5. Because those sticks can quickly become swords when you’re a little kid. Just sayin’
This is summer food. Not too heavy, not too hot and perfect to eat on the patio on a balmy summer evening. Light a beach-scented candle, close your eyes and you’re at a seaside retreat.
Sometimes, you feel like you just “need” to get your green on. No, I’m not talking about your trusty green T shirt that you pull out of the drawer every St Patrick’s Day, I’m talking about getting your “eating green” on. You know those days, the ones that hit you generally after a wild feast, be it the local fair, a holiday or birthday or the chocolate fountain at your cousins wedding. Those days when even your sweat pants are tight, and you swear that your dryer must have gone through a hot flash during it’s last cycle… Those are […]
Most of you know that every Friday I make pizza. Tuesdays are usually tacos, and the rest of the week is a gamble. My culinary creativeness is definitely in hibernation right now. But, despite the lack of creativity in having pizza for dinner, there is still a recipe to be had, and some pictures to go along with it. (I know, it’s been a while and I’m not even going to start with some random excuse at how busy/tired/writers block consumed me) I was gone living life, loving Christmas, writing things other than recipes and taking photos of things other […]
Are you ready for something lighter after the feast that may or may not have occurred over Thanksgiving? Maybe something that’s light, crisp and a little spicy? Or… maybe you decided to plan a party and need something more to serve than pigs in a blanket? I have a solution. But first let’s chat…
My husband never wants lasagna. I’m not sure why, but whenever I suggest it, he suggests something else… Him: “What’s for dinner?” Me: “Lasagna” Him: “How about spaghetti?” So, the other night I just said: “Some spinach pasta dish I want to make” Him: “Sounds good, baby”
I promised something a bit more “booty-friendly” and here it is! These are high in protein, low in carbs and absolutely delicious. Now, if you’re not fond of green things.. stick around. I have something pink and fluffy later. Mix well in a bowl like this: Now, form into burger-sized patties. (or you can do spinach balls) Heat a non stick skillet over med-high. Spray with a bit of cooking spray. Some may have to wait their turn, depending on your skillet size. Serve on your choice of bread product, or eat them “naked”. I you want to know […]
Wow… the wi fi is slower than molasses here.. but that’s what va ca is about, huh? I managed to post on mamakeith… slow on the pics here though! Oh well… I’m making meatloaf in the world’s smallest kitchen..and I can’t wait to post pics… ya gotta ALWAYS have something to look forward to, ya know?! Tomorrow we are headin out to the “humps”… mmm sushi!
And the answer is… chicken divan! I have to admit, I never had this dish until fairly recently. I don’t know why either, because I love curry…. hmmm maybe it’s because my mom never made it growing up? Maybe because it’s one of those dishes you just don’t see on restaurant menus? I guess I will never know. Now for the recipe: Bear with me because the first recipe I had for this was made with mayo… and that after baking basically became an oil slick that resembled an oven version of the exx on-Valdez. No. ugh. Don’t want that! […]
It begins with garlic… oh the glory of garlic…. Mix your chopped garlic with butter and dab it all over your flank steak…and put some coarse salt and fresh ground pepper all over it. Oops… this is blurry. Sorry. It’s a mixture similar to the spinach stuffed chicken breasts except with some chopped fresh basil added to the mix and extra garlic-butter from earlier. Wrap it up like a big tortilla… and secure with cooton kitchen twine. (I love that stuff) I baked it about 45min at 350. It was well done at the ends and pink in the center. […]
This is not what we had for dinner last night, but it was dessert. We had spinach stuffed flank steak, I just didn’t want to be redundant with the spinach thing. (sorry, Popeye) For this you’ll need: 1 stick melted butter 1 1/2 c white sugar 1 c brown sugar 4 eggs 1 tsp salt 1 1/2 c flour 1 c oats 6oz peanut butter chips Super easy! Just combine all ingredients in the order listed and spread into a 9×13 (nonstick) pan. Bake at 350 for 35min. Enjoy. Save
