So. It’s been a few days. This whole cookbook writing sure makes it hard to keep on top of everything. But the stress is worth it, even if it means I don’t post every single day. But I am working on balancing everything so I can get back to nearly daily posts. Anyway, since the […]

I held a mini-tasting in my kitchen for some family members this weekend. I test cooked about seven recipes for the book and several were clear winners, getting instant cheers. Meanwhile a few others are going back to the drawing board because they are just missing something. Obviously, it was productive. I wouldn’t want to […]

After discovering a few recipes for seared tuna recently, which are strikingly similar in cooking method but different in serving, I decided to try my hand at my own variation. There is nothing like a good slab of ahi tuna, seared just right – as in rare. It’s a delicious and firm fish.I used some […]

So there I was, sitting at my desk at work. Idly clicking through Cooking Light‘s recipe archive when I found it: a broccoli recipe that I had to try. And when I say “had to” I mean right away, walk don’t run, need to do this now. Broccoli and Three-Cheese Casserole was calling me. So […]

Lunch. It was a lot simpler before – if I had time I would throw together a quick salad of lettuce, meat and cheese. But I am trying to lose weight and also not eating meat for Lent so the majority of my salad just went down the drain. And besides, I need more vitamins […]

Thank you to all the well wishers who commented on Will being under the weather. Thankfully, he is feeling better now – though his stomach is still sensitive and milk is not his friend. Being that milk is his favorite drink, it stinks for him because that’s what he wants most. But I am doing […]

Well, Will’s ailment has infected our whole household. For Shawn, it started on Valentine’s Day, one day after Will first became sick. And while I did make an abbreviated dinner like Virtual Frolic suggested (I did the chicken, potatoes and mini cakes and skipped the rest), it wasn’t a pleasurable meal. The only really good […]

Roasted Rosemary Fingerling Potatoes

Fingerling potatoes are small, sweet tubers that vaguely look like deformed and fat fingers. I was lucky enough to pick up a giant bag of them at Costco not long ago (yay!) and finally got to sample their deliciousness. Man, are they ever good. I am a big fan of roasting great potatoes, so that’s […]

Tomato Basil Marinara Sauce

Tomato Basil Marinara Sauce

My tomato basil marinara sauce begins with the above. What are they? Broiled tomatoes. Mmmm. Broiling them makes them soft, perfect for crushing, and it ripens their flavor. This sauce is great for baking (lasagna, manicotti, etc) or good with pasta. You could use it over chicken parm or dip fried mozzarella in it. Or, […]
