Asiago Herb and Garlic Bread

Time is up on the giveaway.  I will now retreat with my calculator and devise a highly scientific method of picking the winner. (Actually, the winner will be chosen at random.  I thought I should probably mention that!)  I will announce the winner later today, so please come back to see who the lucky winner [Read On]

Foodie With Family Gorp. A.K.A. Trail mix and Scroggin

I know most of us have had/heard of/eaten our weight in G.O.R.P., but when was the last time you thought about it?  Or ate it?  Or made your own?  Forget back-to-nature, let’s start a back-to-G.O.R.P. movement.  Let me enummerate the reasons why… Gorp.  Super fast to make and makes you super fast.  Or at least [Read On]

Why I’ve been a little distracted…

How in the world am I supposed to sit down and write when I keep seeing these all over my yard and house?   And they’re attached to these… …And all those want is to be fed.  How in the world am I supposed to say no to feet- I mean faces- like that?  My will [Read On]

Crispy Seared Mushroom and Asiago Puffs

Bananas Brûlée

I have not fallen from the face of the Earth.  I’ve had what you might refer to as an exceedingly busy week.  Homeschooling the boys, running them to various and sundry activities, major home construction projects (…aaaand what’s new there?  Not much…), cooking three meals a day for the whole family, testing recipes, etc… That’s [Read On]

Taco Joes

If a sloppy joe’s and a taco’s eyes met across a crowded room…  If they were to fall in love and pledge themselves to each other in holy matrimony…  If they were to have a baby…  It would be -well, besides being weird- delicious.  And it would be what we had for dinner last night.  [Read On]

Baked Pizza Frittata

I was intrigued by a couple of pretty frittatas baked in bundt pans that I saw in the blogosphere over the last couple weeks (here and here, for example…)  I love frittatas, and yes, they are a seriously fast food to throw together.  But here’s where my usual problem comes into play.  Inevitably, as I’m at [Read On]
