OMG — Ribs are lethal!

   May 29, 2012 2:46 pm    0

Last week, I blithely posted a recipe for Honey-Chipotle Glazed Ribs, musing “Hmmmm these look good.” Then I came across an even simpler one that I wanted to try this past weekend for one of my first times working with the baby back variety. Grabbed some ribs at the store, hummed along gathering ingredients, prepping…

Macaroni Salad With A Kick

I love macaroni salad. I don’t have a recipe for it, though, because it’s so evil health-wise that I don’t even want to know how to make it. But this holiday weekend has me hung up on it. For a “picnic” at work today, I made macaroni and cheese for a story about Internet recipes…

Two words: Strawberry. S’mores.

S’more season (It is too a season!) started at our house a month earlier than usual this year. Warm days and beautiful nights have beckoned me and my son and our neighbors to gather around our fire ring every Friday for weeks. We’ve burned through two bags of marshmallows, 10 Hershey’s bars and a box…

Since you’re here, I’m guessing you have some experience with the Internet. I’m also guessing you have some experience finding recipes on the Internet. Given these, I would love to talk to you about how the Internet has changed your cooking, your recipe collections, your social interactions. Tell me how you search for recipes and…

Mom’s lasagna satisfies runner

   May 21, 2012 11:54 am    0

My mom maintains a stable of tried-and-true go-tos for big dinners and picnics, including lasagna. You could say it was my first recipe, and it’s served me well over the years. I made it for more than one boyfriend and my college roommates, and none of them went hungry that day. It’s by no means…

Simple, but awesome: avocado soup and asparagus pesto

   May 18, 2012 2:52 pm    0

One of my favorite food magazines is Fine Cooking. Many of the recipes are over my head, but I find a lot that are right up my alley. I just perused my April/May edition and, as always, found two great ideas. Well, there are probably more, but I stopped when I hit two before I…

Long day? Grab your meat mallet

To be honest, I’m writing about Mustard-Garlic Chicken Paillards with Spring Peas and Lemon because of the word “paillards.” This allows me to share Marnie Mead’s succinct definition of the fancy-sounding French word: “Basically it means you pound the crap out of something until it’s really thin.” Awesome. I can do that. With gusto. Of…
