The Bachlor's Kitchen Part II

I found the kitchen. It was under several months of trash, dirty dishes and stuff... I don't know what stuff was exactly. I just used gloves and held my breath. Now I know why he loved coming to my place for dinner. The first thing I tackled was the trash. It was like walking into the jungle. I was... Sign in to see full entry.

Three Summer Salads For Those Without Long Ears and Whiskers

I am not a fan of straight green salads. I don't have long ears and whiskers and my first name isn't "Hoppy". But it's summer and its too hot to cook and salads are good for you... even if they are not green. So, if you are minus the ears and whiskers, give these a try. Sweet and Sour Pasta Curls...

The Gourmet Takes On A Bachlor's Kitchen

I did not cook last night... at least not at Tom's. I have to be able to find things before I can cook. I ended up making a frozen pizza back at my place at nearly midnight. I was so tired that I forgot to take the cardboard out from under the pizza before I put it in the oven. So, before I start... Sign in to see full entry.

Mulligan Stew

I wish I knew what this name actually means. In my mom's kitchen it meant that we were having my favorite thing in the whole world when I was a kid. It is a simple recipe (Actually, it is probably 100 differet recipes according to most of the databases I checked.) that is meant to fill as many... Sign in to see full entry.

It's My Day Off

Saturday is always my day off from the kitchen. And today is no exception but there are times when I absolutely have no interest in cooking. This usually comes from having far too much to do...but we still have to eat. I am lucky in that, as long as it is substantial and it is not green, Tom will... Sign in to see full entry.

Pick a peck of Pitas

Friday nights are impossible in my kitchen. Tom does not get off work until 6pm and we have to leave for our D&D game by 7:30. Now I have time to cook anything but neither of us has the time to eat hardly anything since he does not routinely get to my place until 7:15... if I am lucky. Sometimes I...

Fruit Soup

When my son Christopher was little my mom would take him occaisionally. By this time my second husband and I were divorced and sometimes I just needed a break. Now Chris was one of only two grandkids my mom had so she spoiled him rotten. He often came home with ziplock bags full of cookies and... Sign in to see full entry.

Gramma and me and the faeries

When I was a little girl I spent a great deal of time with the gramma that I am named for. In fact, she was my best friend. In the evenings in summer we used to go outside and "bait" the faeries. The faeries, of course, were fireflies and the bait was always something sweet. Fireflies, like most... Sign in to see full entry.

These little delicacies are awful expensive in the store but they are simple and easy to make and make anything they are added to special. All you need are a dozen or so tomatoes.

The Accidental Gourmet's How To's - Roasting Peppers

This is so easy to do and it makes a great deal of difference in how a pepper tastes. You get the "green" taste of a pepper when it is not roasted but when you roast it the flavor mellows in the sense of the green taste mellowing but it gets a smokey taste that makes it more complex and interesting...
