Granola is easy to make, delicious and super versatile. By versatile, I mean that it’s a good way to clean out your pantry if that’s something you need to do. You need a bunch of oats, sugar and fat (in almost any form) and add ins. Nuts, seeds, dried fruit. Again, almost any form. Continue reading “Apple Pie Granola”
Will I get sued if I call them homemade oreos?
A chat with a 13 year old a couple of weeks ago included her question “I wonder if you could make oreos?” Today I’m bringing her a batch. Continue reading “Chocolate Wafer Sandwich Cookies”
Chocolate chips AND cocoa powder. Chopped peanuts AND peanut butter. These cookies are bursting with yumminess. I found the recipe here. This is how I’ve adapted it;
Happy New Year!
Post Christmas season and early in the new year, like so many others, leaves me feeling full of heavy foods and lean in the wallet. Also, on the last day off before getting back into the swing of things again meant that I wasn’t in the mood to go out. What’s in the pantry? Continue reading “Curried Chick Peas”
I bought a bag of frozen fish fillets. Not the breaded kind, just white fish loins. (yes, they are actually called loins) They were on sale and it seemed like a good price and fish is healthy, right? So I bought this package of fish and it hung out in my freezer. I moved the package every time I reorganized the freezer to fit more rhubarb in there or to find the spinach. I really didn’t know what I wanted to do with it. Continue reading “Thai Fish Curry”

I mean, I’ve been browning butter since before it was cool so I’m annoyed at all the jonny come latelys with their brown butter ways. Continue reading “Pumpkin Spice Cake with brown butter icing”
If you’re in the market for cheap, nutritious soup, you are in the right place. I have always waited until I had a ham bone to make stock, then make split pea with ham soup. I saw this method on America’s Test Kitchen a while ago, made myself some brief notes and gave it a shot. Continue reading “Split pea with ham soup from ATK”
Not sure why exactly, but I had a craving for crab cakes recently. I have had this piece of paper held to my fridge by a magnet for a long time. Continue reading “Crab Cakes”
This recipe came to me years ago as “Squash Puff”. A delicious side dish made with pureed butternut squash. Or acorn squash. I’ve heard of a dish called turnip puff. I bet you could use any cooked and pureed vegetable in this dish. I wonder what it would be like with applesauce? I see this as a good way to use up veggies in your fridge that may be on their last legs-steam, puree, puff. Continue reading “Puff!”
