Slow Cooked Curry Chicken

My husband's dinner is smiling at you.

Just a quick drive-by to share one of the easiest recipes I have in my recipe cache.  This is truly one of my “go to” recipes, and it is very tasty for being so simple. Ingredients 6 boneless skinless chicken thighs 2/3 c Miracle Whip Light 1 (10 3/4 oz) can Healthy Request Cream of […]

Chunky Sweet Crock Chili

Columbus sailed the ocean blue looking for a collection of spices like this!

BEEF, BEER, COFFEE, and CHOCOLATE.  These are a few of my favorite things! So… I had beef that needed to be used, a hankering for chili, and a husband who doesn’t like beans.  Slamming together a crock of chunky beef chili was the natural course of action.  It was another excellent Sunday football alternative to […]

Roasted Acorn Squash with Pumpkin Seed Oil

Could I earn money as a Pumpkin Squeezer?

Wegmans… how I adore you!  You have a cooking station where you tantalize me with your fine smells.  Then you tease me with a taste.  Then you tempt me by putting all of the ingredients right there in front of me… along with the recipe.  You had me at “Roasted Acorn Squash with Pumpkin Seed […]

Slow Cooked Thanksgiving

Prepped for the pot.

This year, it will be just my husband and me at home on Thanksgiving.  I love tradition, and I have every intention of making it a festive day full of turkey, belching, and football.  However, since we have a more formal Thanksgiving dinner planned for early December, I don’t want to do the entire routine […]

My Eggs! My Eggs!

Yesterday, I blogged about a lovely Baked Eggs Florentine I had for lunch.  My friend, Lola, wondered if this would be a dish she could tote to an upcoming brunch.  I suggested a solution that involves pre-prepping certain ingredients at home and performing final assembly at the home of the host or hostess.  However, I […]

Baked Eggs Florentine

Sssssmoky saute.

There is a fairly new brunchery in Annapolis called Eggcellence. We’ve been curious when walking past it a time or two, but we’re never in town early enough to go inside.  I will now make a point of going in the near future. As I was flipping through What’s Up? Annapolis magazine, I ran across […]

Devilishly Chocolate Reduced Sugar Bundt Cake

The bulk of the body.  No pun intended.

On Sunday my father came over for a lovely prime rib dinner with my wonderful husband and I. We ate heartily, and then we settled in to switch between the baseball playoffs and the late football game. It was a pleasant evening. I have several recipes from that meal to blog about, but I’m a […]

Lazy Glazed Parsnips

Fish shaped bowl not mandatory.

The often overlooked parsnip can provide a fine alternative to the usual mundane side dish and offers a good smack of fiber.  My favorite way to cook parsnips is by roasting them in a honey mustard glaze.  This Mustard and Honey Glazed Parsnips recipe on RecipeZaar is pretty much how I do it, though I […]

Shrimp Cakes

A lovely alternative to traditional fried fish cakes.

A lightened up version of a down home favorite!  We had a substantial lunch whilst watching Sunday football up at the local neighborhood watering hole.   So, for dinner, we made these fun shrimp cakes and not much more.  However, they can be served up as a main course alongside some corn or the fruit […]

Spicy Blackberry Turkey Cutlets

Ingredients 1 pound turkey breast cutlets, boneless, skinless 3/4 c sugar free blackberry preserves (I use Polaner) 1/2 c reduced carb ketchup or regular ketchup 2 tbsp red wine vinegar (I use Pompeian) 1 tsp worcestershire sauce […]
