Bacon-Wrapped Swiss-Lavender Stuffed Chicken

Is the weekend really over already? I mean, I know I had a longer weekend thanks to an out-of-town work assignment Friday that left me with the afternoon off. And I know I fit a ton of things into my weekend, like reorganizing my pantry, my office/former dining room closet, swimming, farmer’s market, grocery shopping, […]

French Toast and Ina Garten’s Maple Roasted Bacon

French Toast and Ina Garten’s Maple Roasted Bacon

I was much more daring this week with my breakfast. We had Ina Garten’s Maple Roasted Bacon, hash browns, a cheddar omelet split between Will and Shawn, and French toast. Talk about carb overload. Secret of making good breakfast #1: Lower the temperature on the burner! You would think I already knew this, but the […]

Ginger Soy Pork Chops, Mmmm

Let’s get something clear – I don’t like pork chops. I purchased a large quantity when I was developing recipes for the cookbook and have several left over. I was dreading eating them, but knew I couldn’t put it off forever (much as I would like to!). But then I saw a recipe at Kalyn’s […]

Sunday Breakfasts #1: Cinnamon Toast

Sunday Breakfasts #1: Cinnamon Toast

| June 3, 2007 | 2 Comments

Cinnamon toast anyone? Cinnamon toast happens to be a favorite breakfast for both Will and I. It could have something to do with the fact that I am a disaster when it comes to traditional breakfast foods. Pancakes burn, eggs dry out, sausage turns to rubber … it’s a curse. But one I want to […]

Back in April, Kalyn posted a question to me here. I tactfully (or perhaps not so tactfully) ignored it because it wasn’t one I was ready to answer in public. But I think I have waited a sufficient amount of time now. So, the answer is yes, Kalyn, I am pregnant. Will, my sweet little […]

Well, not really. But geez would I like to – back to the city, where it’s safe. (If you just want to read about food, hop down to the Food, yay! header.) Yesterday afternoon/evening was, in a word, stressful. I battled bumper to bumper traffic to get to Will’s daycare by 5:30 (I got there […]

I can’t believe it’s Memorial Day already. Yea for warm weather, swimming and lots of beach time! Boo for overpriced gas and higher electric bills. Can’t have it all, can we? Tomorrow, we are heading to the beach for a family day and probably a barbecue. Nothing quite compares with sand, surf and family on […]

So yesterday was the first time I ever tried a Rachael Ray recipe. I know, she’s been huge for several years now, but I managed to remain under the radar … or something. Anyway, this French Dip Panini was amazing. I made a few changes: I added salt and pepper to the sauce, caught out […]

French Dip Panini and Caprese Salad

French Dip Panini and Caprese Salad

| May 15, 2007 | 6 Comments

Dinner tonight was a pretty quick combination of recipes. First, I threw together Rachael Ray’s French Dip Panini (with a few minor modifications). Then I whipped up a two-minute caprese salad (which coincidentally is a perfect inclusion for Sweetnicks’ ARF/5-A-Day Tuesday). Honestly, I dare say this is the first Rachael Ray recipe I have ever […]

Blood Orange-Citrus Marinade for Grilled Chicken

So, since the blood orange season is pretty much over and my attempts at making a blood orange vinaigrette will surely take several more attempts, I decided to set that aside for now and use my last blood orange for a special marinade for grilled chicken. See, Kalyn over at Kalyn’s Kitchen has been grilling […]
