Sticky Garlic Ginger Venison (or Beef) Stir Fry

  I was a weird kid. Unlike many teenaged girls that I knew, I hated babysitting.  I only did it a handful of times and each time ended up providing me with a cautionary tale of terror about children. It’s a wonder I decided to procreate. One time, a couple had me babysit their infant [Read On]

Spicy Asian Broccoli

  If you’ve been reading me for a while, you know about my fixation, er, obsession, um, desperate love for Asian food. You may even have been here long enough to read my sob story about my favourite restaurant ever of all time for eternity Amen closing its doors so the proprietor could retire*. If [Read On]

Cheddar and Chorizo Stuffed Twice Baked Potatoes and a Giveaway!

The giveaway info is below the recipe, so make like a scuba diver and keep on going down! Some of the best food is just not pretty. It’s gooey, gloppy, brown, and not even a little bit elegant. It looks like it’s not worth the paper plate it rode in on. But when the scent [Read On]

Add to that the fact that it’s seriously cold (at least where I am) and we need something comforting, too. Simple, satisfying, [Read On]

Honey Potato Rolls

Every year right around this time I get sappy. I spend November first through January tenth in a heightened state of emotional lather. We have all five boys’ birthdays interspersed among Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve. The ever-racing nature of time is really driven home by singing Happy Birthday twenty five times in [Read On]

No-Knead Rosemary Crescent Rolls

Each Thanksgiving that I have spent as an adult, whether we were eating at home or taking to the road to visit relatives, I have made two kinds of rolls; Honey Potato Wheat Rolls and Crescent Rolls. The truth is, though, that I have eaten one or both of these every single Thanksgiving of my [Read On]
