Vegetable Cheddar Soup

April 16, 2008

When I lived in Portland all by my little old self after college I used to make this very soup in a hand me down pot that I acquired from my mom. Speaking of the old neighborhood, some crazy fool tried to burn it down last week. I’m trying to comfort myself with the fact that […]

Microwave Voodoo: Lean Cuisine Chicken, Mushroom and Spinach Panini

March 26, 2008

I just ate the craziest thing for lunch. It was a Lean Cuisine Chicken, Mushroom and Spinach Panini and via some magical means (this strange silver coating on the package) it grilled itself in the microwave.

Butterscotch Morsels

November 26, 2007

Most of my favorite Holiday memories involve some form of decorating or baking. I’ve always loved Christmas. I was the kid who would beg to put up the tree starting in October. I made Christmas countdowns and scoured the Sears Wish Book making extravagant and detailed lists of the toys and gadgets that I just […]

Cornish Hen and Sweet Potatoes

October 29, 2007

Yet another reason to love Nigella Lawson: her express meals apparently really can be made in a reasonable amount of time. What a concept!? After watching the first episode of Nigella Express on the Food Network I added her recipe for Roast Cornish Hen with Sweet Potatoes to my “to do” list so I’d remember […]
