Tonight’s dinner was really good! I’m trying to expand my tofu cooking skills lately. It made the house smell wonderful too! The mix of spices to make the curry were great, but next time I might just use the curry powder that I have, because it was pretty close. I … Continue Reading →

Tonight, I wanted to make something quick, so I opted for a 30-Minute Meal. It was easy to throw together, and didn’t call for a ton of ingredients like some of her recipes tend to. It was pretty tasty! I grated a little parmesan cheese on top at the end … Continue Reading →

Tonight I made a pot pie for the first time ever. It was good, but by no means great. It was kinda bland. I really enjoyed having zucchini in a pot pie though, it was different from anything else I’ve ever had. It needed some peppers or something to make … Continue Reading →

Saturday night, we had to grill indoors on the Griddler instead of outside because of the rain. So Dino made his burgers, a few hot dogs, and we had some watermelon and egg salad. Washing it down with a beer made it a really comforting meal. I put way more … Continue Reading →

Friday night I decided to try one of Alton Brown’s recipes. I had a block of extra firm tofu in the fridge that I wanted to use up, and serve with some salad. The recipe was great, but I only had sherry wine, not sherry vinegar, so it wasn’t as … Continue Reading →

We decided to make salads on Thursday night, so I asked Dino to figure out some sort of marinade for chicken to put on top of the salads. I had found some Boston lettuce (which I never tried before), and put mushrooms, tomatoes, carrots, red bell peppers and red onions … Continue Reading →

On Tuesday night, I made stew based off of my grandpa’s recipe that was never written down. This makes a HUGE pot of stew, and the amounts are all adaptable. He used cabbage and corn in his I think, but you can use whatever veggies you like most. I think … Continue Reading →

Chicken and Carrots With Wine Sauce

Tonight’s dinner stunk! I used 3 large boneless skinless chicken breasts instead of 8 thighs, and it turned out terribly. It was dry (which usually doesn’t happen to me in the slow cooker, but I attribute it to only having 1/2 cup of liquid) and the taste wasn’t good at … Continue Reading →

Dinner tonight was really good! I saw an episode of Everyday Italian last weekend, and thought that two of the recipes looked really great! The main dish was very comforting. I made a few changes – I used boneless skinless chicken breasts, dried thyme & oregano, and curly parsley. I … Continue Reading →

I baked cookies tonight so that Dino could drop them off at work for our friend (and his co-worker) because his birthday is Saturday, and he works the night shift. I figured it would be a nice surprise. I got this recipe from my mom, and it’s the BEST peanut … Continue Reading →

Dinner tonight was really good! It took a little bit of prep work (chopping all the veggies), but it cooked up really quickly, and I had some rice leftover from earlier in the week, so that part was taken care of! The fresh orange juice in the sauce is a … Continue Reading →

I made this recipe for lunch on Monday. When I saw it in the magazine, I laughed because it didn’t look like it should be called a “recipe” to me. But it was a quick and easy meal to throw together, and let’s face it, I love frozen peas. Tortellini … Continue Reading →
