I love a good hot biscuit covered in melted butter. Don’t you? What I dislike is rolling out dough, making a mess, and then having the whole concoction fall flat in the oven. I’ve comes to terms with the fact that biscuit dough hates me. It’s cool. My grandmother got all of the biscuit making […]

My original intention for the ham steak I purchased on a whim from Trader Joes was to make the Barefoot Contessa’s Parker’s Split Pea Soup, but as it’s bordered on 80 plus degrees in our top floor apartment for the last 10 days (when I didn’t break down and turn on the central air) I […]

Basic Macaroni and Cheese

November 17, 2006

Macaroni and Cheese is my all-time favorite meal. When I was a kid I practically lived on the Blue Box Kraft version — seriously, who didn’t? I was a huge pain in the ass though and I would go through phases where I would only eat certain types, for instance, I vividly remember a 3 […]
