Smokey Minestrone with Tortellini & Pesto

6 Comments 10 January 2014

With the ending of the Holiday season, and finally (I say this with much fervent hope) being able to relax and find more time for one’s self  again, I found myself craving a new soup. I regularly whip up a few favorites in our house, but being a little encouraged by that polar vortex thing […]

BLT Mac & Cheese

5 Comments 25 July 2012

‘Ello, everyone! Full Fork Ahead, reporting for bacon duty! Because it’s all about the bacon, right? When the hubbster tried this one he said, “It’s really good – and it has bacon!” See, everyone always notices the bacon. I don’t care if it’s dusted with edible gold flakes that taste like delectable sausage, if there’s […]

Risotto with Pesto & Peas

3 Comments 13 July 2012

The makers of this recipe should have called it Cheese Risotto instead. Or, Would You Like Some Risotto With Your Cheese. Or, OMG Cheese Glorious Cheese! And A Few Grains of Rice and Some Peas. Because there is a lot of cheese in this mother! Now, I know you’re wondering, “What’s wrong with that?” And […]

It’s enough to make a food blogger want to scream because we’re still very much in winter mode. We wants our breads, our comfort foods – our soups! […]

Herb-and-Leek Bread Pudding

5 Comments 09 December 2011

I love the idea of some sweet treats turned into savory must haves. The idea for this one caught my eye right away in the latest Martha Stewart mag, except we substituted leeks for the original scallions, hoping for a little bigger punch of onion-esque flavor. Sometimes it’s good to experiment. The recipe calls for […]

Mushroom and Wild Rice Soup

8 Comments 29 September 2010

It’s that time of year, fellow forkers! Fall is officially here, and the weather down in our normally still sweltering parts is actually starting to feel like autumn. In the morning and early evenings at least. Oh thank you, sweet baby gods of mercy. Thank. You. We celebrated at my house by cooking up the […]
