Gluten-Free Waffles??

My husband is the breakfast maker, the baker, the recipe follower.  I’m waaaaay more savory and cook-by-the-seat-of-my-pants. We balance. Last month the owner of Butterly Gluten Free Flour reached out to me to see if I’d be interested in trying out their … Continue reading

How I got my 2 year old to eat 3 helpings of fish

I poached it in oil. To be honest, these two will eat fish in almost any format. Fried, baked, grilled – just not tuna salad. *shrugging shoulders*   Last months issue of Bon Appétit had a recipe for an Oil-Poached … Continue reading

Fresh Mint Ice Cream freakin’ ROCKS!

Seriously, David Lebovitz – I salute you. You taught me to temper chocolate, to candy ginger – and now, HUZZAH – to make homemade Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream. *swoon* This week the mint surprised us by just showing up, … Continue reading

HUZZAH!

So we got this collection of spices from my Great-Aunt Yvonne for our wedding. One of which I stuck in the back of the pantry and promptly forgot about. Yesterday, I – for whatever reason – remembered the one jar … Continue reading

I don’t know if you could really call this Tartar Sauce…

Since it’s Passover right now, everything is kinda turned upside down in our kitchen. We are limited in our options and ingredients – even more so than usual. In this house, for the duration of the holiday, we don’t eat … Continue reading

I don’t think there’s ANY way to make this look appetizing…

I make a version of tuna salad that E really likes. It’s one of her favorite meals that I make – and one that she requests ALL.THE.TIME. We’re big fans of using food coloring in this house. Rainbow pasta, dyed … Continue reading

Pinch of Yum had a recipe for a healthier version of General Tso’s Chicken (my all-time favorite chinese take-out dish) that it got outta the new America’s Test Kitchen cookbook Comfort Food Makeovers. I thought I had everything on hand to … Continue reading

Forget it. You won’t like these. Nuh Uh. Not ONE bit.

Two Words: HOMEMADE. MARSHMALLOWS.   E and I both agree that you won’t like these. Not one bit. Nope. Nuh uh.   This morning, while the babies took their nap, E and I decided to make marshmallows. We thought they’d be … Continue reading

I remember eating them for school lunches

It’s funny: I’ve never made Sloppy Joe’s before. I vaguely remember eating them for school lunches, I remember those insipid Manwich commercials, but I’d never actually made Sloppy Joe’s before. And then last night my sister the photographer texted me a photo of her … Continue reading

I burned the Pancakes

C was working overnight last night, so I tried to take over the pancake-making this morning. I was only partially successful. We had to throw out the chocolate chip ones…they were too burnt to eat, though E valiantly tried (No. I didn’t … Continue reading
