Chickpea and Sundried Tomato Basil Salad

AND I’m a liar. No, I’m not a liar. I said I’d be here posting recipes when the mood struck me and it struck, so here I am. Yesterday I went to this Asian Market in Media that sells flowers and produce and other things you’d find at an Asian market. Someone told me about…

Chicken Cacciatore

In a post yesterday, I mentioned how bad I felt for the contestants of Worst Cooks in America. The show is a train wreck, except for Priscilla the mean retired teacher who couldn’t handle being the student to learn how to do something that’s basic to survival, I felt bad for them. On the second…

Quick Red Beans & Rice

This is the quickest red beans and rice recipe you will ever make. This is one of those dishes you make when you don’t feel like cooking. Last night, I didn’t feel like cooking nor was anyone scheduled to come cook for me, so I had to do it. I took a quick inventory of…

Naked Stir Fry

      It always baffles me when people tell me they are intimidated by the stir fry. I am not sure what it means or where the term originated, but I will be looking up the etymology after I am finished with this post. To me, a stir fry is the easiest and quickest…

Classic Pesto with Flax Seed

I scored a great deal of fresh basil today for less than a dollar. This is one of the many reasons I love shopping at local establishments. What else can you do with a lot of basil but make pesto? I decided to make some for tonight’s dinner and I froze some for later. I…

Harvest Grains Warm Ginger Salad

I made this dish last weekend when it was cold and rainy. I’m not complaining because I adore fall weather, but the heat hasn’t been turned on in my building and I was chilled to the bone. I have a lot of fresh ginger in my house and I know ginger has a warming effect…

Crisscross Applesauce

After this lovely holiday weekend, I will embark on a new journey teaching college freshman at the University level. The day I spent at the orchard yesterday has me thinking back to a time when things were simpler. By simpler, I mean I was flat broke and still in graduate school. I worked as a…

Arrowhead Mills Puff Cereals

I am in love with Arrowhead Mills Puffed Kamut and Millet cereals. They are delightful. I found them one day when I was wandering through my local natural food store and I decided to take them home and give them a try. At $1.79 a bag, they were priced just right. I have been reading…

10 Minute Tacos

I am having some medical issues and my body requires a three-hour nap in the middle of the day. (No really. My speech slurs and everything. It’s odd.) When I wake up from my epic nap, I stumble around like a drunk kindergarten. A drunk and very hungry kindergartener. (For a visual, imagine Patsy and…

SnOMG Bean Burgers

It’s snowing here in Media and everyone in my building is hunkered down. I can’t get out of my backdoor and the front door doesn’t look too promising either. I am snowed in, kids. The picture above was taken during a much less annoying snowfall earlier this month. Father Winter was just testing out his…
