“The Works” Pizza with Honey Wheat Crust

October 9, 2008

Yes, that is in fact a jar of Newman’s Own Tomato and Basil in the above picture. I’m not ashamed. I think I get a pass for using store bought sauce for two reasons: 1. It’s manufactured by Paul Newman’s company and 2. I made my own pizza dough. Oh…ok…CK made it. Not wanting to […]

Mushroom Stroganoff

January 8, 2008

I don’t know about the rest of you, but after spending the last few weeks literally gorging myself on wine, cheese, chocolate, more wine, dip, crackers, wine again, and then some beer I’m starting to feel like I need to promptly go to a spa, a yoga retreat, the gym, and possibly rehab. So to […]

Fall Risotto & Turkey Cutlets

October 12, 2006

Risotto is my second favorite dish to make (behind any kind of soup). What I love about risotto is that you can just toss in fun combinations of veggies, handfuls of grated cheese, and dinner is done (well after you stir it until your arm is ready to fall off, but personally I can use […]

Ellie Krieger’s Scrumptious Scramble

October 1, 2006

My “edited” version of Ellie Krieger’s Scrumptious Scramble.  Essentially, throw whatever you have on hand into a pan, saute it in a small amount of olive oil, and combine it with scrambled eggs for a delicious breakfast.  I like serving eggs this way because I am a miserable failure when it comes to making omelets.
