Now what??? Reflections of a Year-Long Blogger...
 Where do I begin? About a year ago I was contemplating starting a blog.  I never thought I had anything original enough or "internet worthy" (well, I guess that's not saying much) to say.  But I loved the idea of journaling, or blogging online.  I've never...

Day 364: Leg of Lamb & Game Day Quesadillas!
About a week ago I took some requests for meals to make my last week of this blog.  Today I'm fulfilling two of them.  Because I like rich Sunday dinners like roasted chicken, pot roast, etc, I thought the leg of lamb that someone requested would be a good ...

Day 361: "Italian" Pork Chops
I'm not a huge fan of pork chops, and I don't like onions.  But these onion-smothered pork chops are good!  ( Okay, I didn't eat all the onions .)  But I've learned that I can actually eat caramelized onions and like the flavor they give whatever they're ea...

Days 356 & 357: Prosciutto & Linguine Frittatas and Italian Cream Cake
Today we had an "appetizer" gathering for a belated Christmas party with Randy's side of the family.  Then my parents came over in the evening for dinner and Randy's birthday, so I was up at the crack of dawn preparing food.  I made 2 appetizers and a desse...

Day 353: Baked Orzo with Chicken
It's funny how you go through different moods for things--different moods for movies, music, food, and for me, cooking styles.  In my heart of hearts, I will always be the Pioneer Woman's number one fan.  The problem is, we don't live on a farm and aren't d...

Day 360: Classic Lasagna and Links to Others
I've made a few different lasagnas over the past year, but never a real classic lasagna.  ( I'll include the links to the others at the end of this post. )  Lasagna is a pretty basic, traditional dish, which is why I think I never found a recipe for classic...
