Vitamix Refreshing Mint Lemonade

This week, one of my culinary dreams came true. I recently got a full-time job and I did some serious budgeting to be able to buy myself a Vitamix. I have had many battles with my blender in the past, so this Vitamix is truly a dream come true. I have a rare morning off…

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…

Turkeyburger Helper

Sometimes I crave gnarly foods. Today’s craving is Hamburger Helper and the craving hit me on the way to the parking lot. I started a new job and this week I’m in training, so I’ve been dutifully taking my lunches because I don’t know what there is to eat there and when I arrive home…

Quick Garlic Knots

Last night, I decided I wanted to make garlic knots. I often do that before bed; I decide what I want to make and then I spend my last waking moments searching for recipes online. I go to sleep before I get too involved with figuring out how to sub out ingredients to achieve the…

FKF: NJ’s Famous Tomato Sandwiches

I grew up in South Jersey, which is the polar opposite of North Jersey. You won’t find any Jersey Shore-esque guidos down here. I saw did see one once at Target when I was in college. Actually, I smelled him first…from three aisles away. It was most unpleasant. When you grow up in South Jersey,…

Crock Pot Pulled Pork

Hey kiddies! (waves) It has been a while, hasn’t it? I’m not able to post as much as I used to but I made a recipe so amazing I just had to find the time to share. I found this amazing recipe for Crock pot pulled pork at Food.com. A few deviations to the recipe:…

FKF: Blood Orange Sorbet

Blood oranges are in season. I love them because they are so, well, bloody. From the outside, they look like oranges, but when you peel them, they look like this: They are sweet and tart. They don’t really taste like what you’d expect from an orange. Think grapefruit and orange, but not really. Blood oranges…

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…

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…

Spanish Tortilla

This is a traditional Spanish recipe that is composed of three simple ingredients. In Spain, a tortilla is not a piece of flattened bread, but something more of a massive omelette. It’s delicious and filling. You can add more than just the three ingredients, but I like it as is. I had a roommate who…

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…

Cooking 1-0-fucking-1: Egg in a basket

The title of this post some from a darling friend of mine who bravely admitted that she has checked out the blog but doesn’t have a “fucking clue” what she’s doing in the kitchen.  She proceeded to ask me how to warm up a doggie bag from the previous night’s restaurant dinner.  “Hun, just put…
