Friday Click-A-Rama

It’s been a busy week. So busy that the extent of my cooking has involved throwing some pasta in water and cracking open a jar of pesto. Seriously. I forgot how difficult it was to find the time/desire/ability to cook after a long day of work. But I will get it. At least Shawn hopes […]

Fast Food/Bad Food

I am a recovering fast food addict. There. I’ve said it. There was a time not too long ago when drive-thrus were a God-send for me. I used them. I abused them. And somehow I maintained a decent weight . . . until I was pregnant. After pregnancy I vowed to leave my fast food […]

Frozen Dinners

Fresh home cooked meals from the freezer? Ones that you prepare yourself and then freeze until you are ready to use them? Could this be real? Well apparently it is. I was leafing through the local weekly today and discovered two ads for local companies that provide this service. You choose however many dishes you […]

Will and I had a dramatic afternoon in the grocery store yesterday so I didn’t bring home enough food to create anything extraordinary. But I have big plans this weekend for some yummy recipes like blackberry limeade. With any luck, they will be up today and tomorrow in time for Kalyn’s Weekend Herb Blogging, Sweetnicks’ […]

Meat and Potatoes

Meat and Potatoes

My husband is that quintessential meat and potatoes type guy, or he was until I laid down the law: meals must include a bare minimum of one vegetable, salad is a staple and lean cuts beat out hunks of beef. Sometimes he still bucks at the “green stuff” on his plate, but he’s largely come […]

I’ve been trying to get onto blogger to post all day, but kept getting errors. As a result this is going to be a very brief post after a long day with a few good links. If all goes well tomorrow though, I will be posting a few delightful new recipes. And I have been […]

It’s rabbit season! No! It’s duck season!

It’s rabbit season! No! It’s duck season!

The Hartford Courant had some unfamiliar recipes this week that featured (gulp) rabbit. Sorry, but I am just not that adventurous. Let the little hopping fur balls be pets, not dinner. Check out my write up on Paper Palate (now defunct) for more details, and a link to the article in case that happens to […]

It’s strawberries time – they are ripe for pickin’ and at their sweetest now. I cannot wait to get out into the fields and get some for myself. I can already picture all the delights I will make with them – strawberry shortcakes, roulades, etc.

Obsessed no more.

Obsessed no more.

| June 1, 2006 | 0 Comments

Once upon a time, I was among the fast food obsessed. I could name the best menu items for at least a half dozen establishments in the fast realm and I could detail the differences between French fries from Burger King and McDonalds, down to subtle tastes. That’s changed. I don’t want to be that […]

If you have children, you know it can be a challenge raising them to eat healthy. But the rewards of doing so are so great that it is worth every second, without a doubt (and your future son and daughter in laws will surely thank you again and again). For some tips on raising healthy […]
