This afternoon I was at the grocery store buying a few things and almost bought a pizza. When telling my husband this, he says enthusiastically, “Can you go back and get one?!!” I said with a smile that I’d see what ingredients we have and try to make one. When he suggested calzones, I wholeheartedly agreed. :) […]
I love smoothies because they’re super easy to make! Step 1: Place foods in the blender. . . Step 2: Put the top on. . . Step 3: Press “pulse” a few times and then press a “blend” button (they all ultimately do the same thing) Below I’ve listed a few common ingredients used for […]
Around Christmas, Kathy Patalsky posted a recipe for Pumpkin Cranberry Loaf on her blog. Having leftover pumpkin from a recipe, I endeavored to give hers a try. I didn’t make it vegan, and I reduced the sugar and used apple butter instead of oil…but it was pretty delicious!! Cobalt and I toasted the bread and […]

Chicken Pot Pie is one of mine and Cobalt’s favorite dishes. Last night I was going to make King Ranch Chicken but realized that the ingredients I had would be much tastier in Chicken Pot Pie.

For once I’m not going to write a very long post, as I think the blog from which this recipe comes from explains enough about it :) Analysis You may have to cook your chicken longer than 4-5 hours. I cooked mine all night the first time and it was perfect! The second time I […]

Last year for Christmas – mine and Cobalt’s first Christmas being engaged – my aunt gave us a lovely and thoughtful present. It included some homemade vanilla extract and some Texas themed chili seasoning mix. Ever since then, I’ve wanted to make chili for one of our many making-food-together-at-each-others’-apartments dates. But the winter came and […]
Today, I had leftover canned pumpkin from pumpkin bagels I made the other day, so I made this recipe for my hubby who has been requesting for pancakes! These pumpkin eggnog pancakes were really fluffy and flavorful! (The pumpkin was a fabulous addition to normal pancake mix.) Also, they were SUPER easy to make. Took me maybe 45 […]
