Sweet Potato Spinach Quesadillas

Sweet Potato and Spinach Quesadilla

There are two things you should know about me before we officially get started with this post: One: I am not a patient person. This is the reason I’m horrible at making omelets and stir-fries. It’s the reason I almost always undercook the chicken and then dry it out – not when I’m cooking for [...]

Toasty S’mores Shots

We’re finally back up and running. Running is a bit of an overstatement because we’ve been driving to town, shopping, eating, and sleeping in until noon. Yes, noon. I have NEVER slept in until noon before. When I was a teenager 8 seemed like sleeping in since our bus came at 6:30 AM. Then, I [...]

Foodies With Kids Recipe Round-Up

Kid-Friendly Recipe Round-Up

Let me start off by saying that I’m incredibly lucky to have a child that will eat almost anything. At two he was eating goat cheese, avocados, and olive tapenade. At three, that has changed somewhat. He is much pickier, which is normal because he’s discovering things and making opinions about the world around him. [...]

Make-Ahead Peach Crisp Oatmeal

Peach Crisp Oatmeal

The past few days have been crazy. In the most exhausting way…I mentioned in on my Twitter and Facebook accounts, but I don’t think it appeared on my blog anywhere, which is also kind of crazy because I was just so excited. Reason number one for extreme elation: SCHOOL’S OUT FOR THE SUMMER (but not [...]

Mango Lemon Bars

Mango Lemon Bars

      Follow my blog with Bloglovin Southern French summers were hot and dry. If you ventured outside in the middle of the afternoon, your blood thanked you by trying to boil and thicken into boudin noir (a pig blood sausage). In an almost cartoonish manner, looking into the distance you might see wavering [...]

Baked Corn Tortilla Chips

Baked Corn Tortilla Chips

This gal is doomed. If kindergarten isn’t out to avoid the spread of a virus, we’re recruiting on Saturdays, or we have three day weekends where I fall ill. I promised you baked tortilla chips to go with my Smokin’ Hot Salsa Recipe…two weeks ago. I meant to post these on a Friday, because who [...]

Smoking Hot Salsa

Summer means salsa in my heart, even though I actually didn’t like cooked salsa all throughout my childhood. My parents have a vegetable garden, and usually end up with gobs of tomatoes, and my mother makes canned salsa. Even today, there is always a jar that makes its way into a brother or sister’s car [...]

Traditional Mexican Horchata Recipe

Traditional Horchata Recipe

You have the hubby to thank for this traditional recipe. He didn’t invent it. He didn’t even give you a fresh twist on the classic. But he did stop me from going a little coco-NUTS on this recipe and adding… yeah, okay, I punned this sentence up about thirty seconds too early, you probably know [...]

Baked Thai Tofu Bites

Baked Thai Tofu Bites

You may remember when I spoke about the virtues of having easy tofu recipes in your repertoire in my adaptation of Savoring Spoon’s caramelized tofu recipe. And I was amazed at the level of crispiness you can reach by sautéing your tofu. I decided about two weeks ago that I needed to find other ways to [...]
