Something From Nothing #23: Light and Crispy Homemade Waffles
Bacon Waffles While I was doing my last post for brined chicken strips, I thought it would be a cute photo to set some on top of a couple of waffles. It just so happens that I have a killer recipe for waffles that I have used for years, given to me by my mo...

Putting Some Odds and Ends to Good Use: Easy Dirty Rice
Sometimes the stars align and it seems like a post pretty much writes itself, kind of like this one. It started out earlier in the week when I found a three pack of orange bell peppers on sale, so stuffed bell peppers became dinner on Monday night. Since I ...

Happy Pi Day: Frozen Grasshopper Pie
January 23rd is officially National Pie Day, but true to form I missed it. Thinking that math geeks and food geeks should peacefully coexist, I'm going to celebrate March 14th, Pi Day, with a pie to make up for it. I think it is obvious by now that I love g...

Waste Not, Want Not: Strawberry Lime Sorbet
My local supermarket has strawberries on sale right now. They always look so promising in their clear plastic clamshells all red and ripe, but unfortunately the promise is all you usually take home these days. Too often strawberries in particular appear to ...

Juicy Brined Chicken Tenders
Now that spring has arrived and summer is around the corner, fried chicken recipes are popping up everywhere you look. I don't know why it is, but fried chicken seems to be a seasonal favorite. Maybe it is because it reminds us of picnics and lazy Sunday af...

What to Cook When You Don't Have Time to Cook: Chicken (or Tuna) Noodle Casserole
I have been totally covered up with work lately. For the past couple of weeks I have been brainstorming, cooking, testing and retesting recipes non-stop for the next Pillsbury Bake-Off.  Since I have already been twice, I only have one more run at it, which...

Eat Like You're Irish: Colcannon and Soda Bread
Fresh kale, twice rinsed, chopped and ready to go in my colcannon. My love for St. Patrick's Day goes way back to elementary school. Back then it was important to be one of the lucky ones who remembered to wear green to school, which gave you permission to ...

Introduction

I have always loved to write and cook so starting a recipe blog seemed like a natural thing to do. Most of my recipes are my own creations, but I also like adding my own spin on some of my favorite American and English recipes too.
