Pineapple and Beef Kheema with Pancho Phoron and Kale (Indian Ground Beef Curry made easy with canned pineapple)

This is the last of the dishes I made prior to my surgery–and I am at my parents and realized I forgot my laptop charger. !!! Panic ensues. Thank goodness I have a husband who never forgets his, and has promised me I can use his laptop. But for now I am typing against the clock on a dim screen. [keep reading to whet your appetite]

Vanilla Citrus Perunillas with Fiori di Sicilia

Those of you familiar with a Spanish charcutería board may be staring at this post in consternation, wondering what a cookie recipe has to do with Spanish cured meats, or even cured anything. Stick with me! I was of two minds about whether to request Jeffrey Weiss’s Charcutería: The Soul of Spain for review. On the one hand I adore Spanish cured meats and could happily eat them all day long. [keep reading to whet your appetite]


Ancho and Beer Braised Brisket Tacos with Pickled Red Onions

I am doing my best but I do not think my posts are going to get particularly lengthy or eloquent any time soon. The pain meds have been downgraded to the kinds that make you just kinda drowsy, not the ones that knock you on your back. [keep reading to whet your appetite]

While you are reading this, with any luck I will be lying on the couch recovering, watching something light and trashy like Mistresses, while Alex makes dinner and Sammy fans me with a palm frond. A girl can dream, right?

Bacon Ricotta (Blue) Corn Cakes; Review of Bacon 24/7

June 22, 2014

You will have to pardon me if any tone of irritation creeps into my writing while singing the praises of these corn cakes. I am not allowed to eat today (because the surgery tomorrow is in my abdomen) and I am definitely a person who leans toward hanger when unable to eat. I don’t know […]

Review of The Healthy Slow Cooker, Second Edition (Gluten Free)

June 18, 2014

I am afraid I do not have a recipe for you today. I am reviewing Judith Finlayson’s The Healthy Slow Cooker: 135 Gluten-Free Recipes for Health and Wellness, which is a Robert Rose publication.

Lemony Blueberry Crumb Pie: Sammy Bakes! Review of Teeny’s Tour of Pie

June 16, 2014

I have a lot to share and what feels like little brain cells with which to share it! I had some medical testing today which required general anaesthesia, so I may not be all here. But I cannot wait any longer to share this pie, and more importantly, this pie crust with you. Ad therefore […]

Curried Chicken Casserole with Broccoli, Rice and Mushrooms: Alex Cooks! #Sponsored

June 12, 2014

This post is a whole slew of things. It is an American Homemade inspired re-do of a treasured family recipe, originally made with canned soup and a walloping amount of Miracle Whip, into a from-scratch recipe using a minimal amount of mayo instead. It is a celebration of my daughter learning to cook one of her […]
