    Sunday morning calls

    for gooey cinnamon buns from scratch :) I hope they taste as delicious as the messiness, rolling, kneading, flour exploding, dough caked hands and sore arms has convinced me they are going to be. When I get my own home, everyday is going to be an experimental cooking show, and...

    My husband and I have decided

    that we're going to start eating cleaner and all after the new year so we each picked our favorite "bad" meal to eat before D-Day. LOL. Hubby's was homemade tacos, like his mother used to make. Meat seasoned with garlic, onion, hot sauce and tomato sauce and fresh corn tortillas...

    Brining And Dining

    A couple of years ago I was listening to “The Splendid Table” on NPR, and I heard Lynn Rosetta Casper talk about the advantages of brining poultry. Yes! This was it!  How many years have I have suffered from the cotton mouth effects of way too dry Thanksgiving turkey and my...

    ever since I was little I would always watch my

    father cook dinner, and for some reason I loved it. I remember thinking, "this is what I want to be when I grow up".

    But I am absolutely awful at it.

    I made a apple pie today and burnt the side parts. Annnnnd I made cookies today which guess what? I burnt those too :P. But it's fun (and frustrating) to cook and/or bake.

    Meatloaf, buttered rice,

    and green beans for dinner. My kids love green beans but I'm sneaky and add shredded carrot, mushrooms, bell pepper, and onion to the meatloaf for extra veggies. Chopped up fine and with the ketchup glaze, they don't even notice it!

    My Moment Of Pride

    I started cooking and baking at a very young age, at first with my mother, then pretty soon I was doing it alone, following recipes until I felt confident enough to create my own. Last year a friend sent me a huge crate of apples from her orchard, so after eating all we could...
