June 25th, 2013 · Comments Off

Cruising around Pinterest the other day I found this yummy-looking photo and was instantly captivated. We used a store-bought jar of salsa verde but check out the orginal recipe with the directions for making your own salsa verde. We get a lot of butternut squash from our CSA during the season and I run out […]

Country Bob’s Portobello Burgers

September 18th, 2009 · 3 Comments

One of the advantages of writing a food blog like this one is that people occasionally send you food. Or at least sauces. One such person is Country Bob, who wants more people to try his sauce. They should; it’s rather good, and we’re not just saying that because he sent us a free bottle. […]

Vegetarian Chili

August 24th, 2009 · Comments Off

While perusing the pantry looking for Sunday supper inspiration, I found a can of red kidney beans and a can of chickpeas. Not much to work with but it was something. Then I remembered the stewed tomatoes in the freezer from last tomato season… and the idea of chili took form. I looked online for […]

Burmese Shrimp Curry

June 3rd, 2009 · Comments Off

This is another recipe from this fabulous book. I can’t seem to stay away from the Burma chapter which is where this shrimp curry comes from. It’s shockingly simple to make, but comes out as good as anything in a restaurant. The kids like popping off the tails of the shrimp while we eat. Anything […]

Homemade Refried Beans

April 29th, 2009 · Comments Off

Okay, usually taco night means we take it easy. Just buying a can of refried beans seems like the thing to do, right? But this time I thought I would try making refritos from scratch with dried beans using a recipe from this cook book. Ingredients: 2 cups of pinto beans, soaked in water overnight […]

Chicken Pot Pie

March 16th, 2009 · Comments Off

I was in the mood to try and make a pie crust from scratch today. Something I’ve never done before and I’m not sure why I felt like making one, but today was the day. As it happened I didn’t have the filling for a pie in the house, and I didn’t feel like going […]

Bok Choy with Spicy Vinaigrette

March 12th, 2009 · Comments Off

Bok Choy is one of our favorite vegetables from our local CSA. It’s versatile enough to be mixed with other veggies for a stir fry but can also stand alone. For this recipe I used a spicy vinaigrette that I improvised after googling and finding several variations. Ingredients 1 large head of Bok Choy 1/4 […]

Curried Cream of Cauliflower Soup

January 2nd, 2009 · Comments Off

Happy New Year! At the junior kitchen house we celebrated our new year’s with traditional black-eyed peas and greens (for a prosperous 2009 – peas for money that jingles and greens for the kind that folds), plus we added this wonderful golden cauliflower soup from RecipeZaar to our supper. (We skipped the hog jowls, may […]

Caponata, a.k.a. Incredible Sicilian Eggplant Stew

December 12th, 2008 · Comments Off

I checked Jamie Oliver’s Jamie’s Italy cookbook out of the library and discovered this fantastic recipe. The kids liked cutting the vegetables into big chunks (which is exactly what this recipe needs), and we all liked eating it. We’ll be making more soon – even if you don’t like eggplant, you’ll like this. They did! […]
