Artichoke Cheese Balls

Mom's Artichoke Cheese Balls

So, out come the recipes from last week’s Thanksgiving festivities.  I promise, I will break this up with something healthier very soon.  Having said that, these aren’t too bad for hors d’oeuvres.  My mother loved making these, and I’ve been carrying on the tradition in her stead. Ingredients 16 ounces artichoke hearts, drained and mashed […]

Popovers

Served some weeks back with Prime Rib.

Having a husband from the UK who likes Yorkshire Pudding and a father who loves Popovers, I decided I had best get a recipe into my repertoire, stat!   Yorkshire Pudding and Popovers are basically the same thing…  perhaps a couple minor differences. Wikipedia Article on Yorkshire Pudding Wikipedia on Popovers Be sure to google […]

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 […]

Sweet Carrot Sauce

Combining eggs, carrots, juice, and a veritable cocktail of sweeteners.

A few weeks ago, I saw a recipe for Carrot Curd on Anatomy of a Dinner Party .  Never heard of it… didn’t really know what the hell a curd was apart from a cheese by-product… but it looked darn good, and I have been dying to make a “lighter” version of it ever since. […]

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 […]

Jalapeno Heaven

A cheese party with pepper confetti!

Cheesy and spicy and everything nice-y!  If you love cheese and eggs, then this is guaranteed to please.  Jalapeno Heaven is one of the few recipes in which I use white flour.  There is only 1/2 cup across the entire recipe, which brings the total carb count to about 6g per serving. Ingredients 1 lb. […]

Soy Marinated Eggs a.k.a The Great Soy Egg Tasting of 2009

Nothing screams Autumn like boiled eggs in soy sauce.

I regularly hang out in a chat room full of web developer peers, and yesterday we decided to do some experimentation with marinating hard boiled eggs in soy sauce. (What did you think we talked about? Programming or something?) The idea was planted a little while back when our friend TJ was gleefully nomming on […]
