Friday Food – week ending 4/24

I thought I’d try something new and sort of collect the dishes that I make during the week and share them here with links and my thoughts. First, is a dish that I tried for the first time. Shanghai Noodles. This was delicious! I admit, I didn’t make it with pork (I had ground turkey

Recipe Friday: DIY Ramen.

I’m sort of taking a sick day- I got the cold that TheBoy had last weekend, and that the bulk of the Little Kidlet’s kindergarten class seem to have. While I’ve been good about washing my hands at home, and using hand sanitizer when I was in the classroom (I volunteer), there’s only so much

Crossroads and artichoke sauce.

One week ago exactly, I was talking to the triage nurse and being admitted to the ER. I have no idea what my hemoglobin level is at today, but I feel comfortable saying it must be pretty good. I have no idea what the future brings, except that it looks unlikely like I’ll have to

Frying, my culinary true love.

I admit it. If it can be fried, odds are I’ll fry it. I’ve already promised my mom to draw the line at frying butter, so don’t worry people. I won’t be installing a deep fryer here either. Saturday night, I was the lone adult in the house, and while I had food for the

Recipe: Goat Cheese, Pesto and Sun Dried Tomato Torta

I know I haven’t posted much about our Christmas dinner. I’ll just say this. The food rocked. I plan on making all the dishes again, so the recipes will pop up here anyways. The first recipe that I made is this layered “torta” that my mom put together for Christmas. The other appetizers I was

Kitchen Shortcuts: the Improvised Sauce

WARNING: This post contains pictures taken on a cameraphone. For those of you who require hi-res fancy pictures… sorrry! I should get a new camera for me and a cheap one for the Oldest Kidlet, who is quite the photographer- but rough on cameras. I know, I’m the Queen of Make-It-From-Scratch. But you know… there

The Ultimate Sandwich

So, I got a Flip UltraHD for my birthday. I got it, on the promise that I’d take more videos of my children. But really, I had fond memories of my sister and I, making silly home movies with our camcorder. Somewhere there is a tape with our bizarre version of Wizard of Oz, lip-synching

The Happy Daughter Cheesecake project

I love cheesecake. As a kid, when my mom brought home the frozen cheesecake from Trader Joe’s, I knew I was ready for something special. When I was first dating TheBoy, I knew we were meant to be when I discovered that he made cheesecakes from scratch. It was a sign. I’ve made a few

Monday Waffles!

Yes, waffles on a Monday. There are many times that I lament the fact that TheBoy works nights, but Monday mornings are not one of them. With his schedule reversed, he’s usually up Monday morning, and we can have a nice big breakfast for just the four of us. Otherwise, we’d have to double the
