Baked Maple Oatmeal

I know I’ve mentioned a few times that I’m not a breakfast person. I maintain that with one big exception. See that bowl up there? That’s the exception. That is baked oatmeal. I had a big time Goldilocks complex about oatmeal, and not being someone who eats until ten-thirty/eleven-ish each day, I never really felt [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]

Champorado (Chocolate Rice Porridge)

  Filipino food is some of my favourite¬† in all of the Earth. It’s not just because it’s great (although it is), but because for most of my youth, it represented the sum total of what was exotic in my life. Growing up in some of the most rural parts of Michigan it was nothing [Read On]

Homemade Larabars

I was a little late to the energy bar party.¬† It was a matter of semantics. Energy bars. That’s really not a very appetizing name.

You see, energy bars sound like healthy food for [Read On]

Spinach Bacon Cheddar Munchy Cakes

My name is Mrs. Bacon Onion Cheddar-Spinach, but you can call me Mrs. Spinach. I loved spinach so much that I married it. Er, not really, but you get the point. Spinach. Sigh. This is a bittersweet story. For years, I didn’t cook spinach as much as I’d like because my kids -most of ‘em [Read On]
