'Dream Dinners"

I have noticed several meal preparation franchises opening up. I finally went into one and found out what the businesses offer. They offer ingredients to different meals, which one can come in a prepare themselves and bring home and cook or bake at home. All of the ingredients are cut up and ready,...

Beans are cheap and good for you. They are easy to use for casseroles, soups and side dishes. There are just a few things to remember about beans. Canned beans may be more expensive than uncooked dried beans, but they save a lot of time. Soaking is vital. Salt can prevent beans from softening. You... Sign in to see full entry.

Cooking by Memory

It's been a long time since I've used a cookbook or even cooked a new recipe. I have so many in my head that I don't bother. The bread and soup cookbook that I got for a wedding present disappeared. I think that I might have decided to get rid of it. But I had one of our household members cook a... Sign in to see full entry.

We have both Danish and Swedish foods for Christmas. His favorite is aebelskivers. They are balls fried in a pan with round dips in it. You... Sign in to see full entry.

Nutrisystem's diet food

I have eight pounds to lose, so I decided to buy nutrisystem's diet food. It is expensive, but it is inclusive. I lost weight twice before on Nutrisystem. It is easy to follow because you eat food that is already prepared and measured out. I've been on vacation this week and have cheated a little,... Sign in to see full entry.

Comfort food

Comfort food is what you had when you were a child. For many of us with parents who served meat and potatoes comfort food is mashed potatoes and gravy. For my friend from Laos it was noodles.

Simple Food

If you're hungry and eating alone, you may not want to make a full meal. There are things you can have that are tasty and don't require a lot of cooking and beat eating a frozen burrito. Guacamole. Buy an avocado according to when you want to eat it. If you want to eat it tonight, buy a soft one.... Sign in to see full entry.

Slow Food Restaurant

The ultimate substitute for fast food is food cooked to order in a restaurant. There are all sorts of those. Today, my husband and I ate in a restaurant in Iawaco, Wa on the west coast of the state. At the bayside walkway are a row of restaurants, gifts shops, waiting rooms for fishing tours, and... Sign in to see full entry.

Vegetables Taste Good, too.

Vegetables grown on corporate farms can taste bland. But homegrown vegetables taste wonderful. So do vegetables that aren't normally offered in supermarket produce sections. My favorite vegetable is beets. The parts of the beet I like best are the tops. Cook them like spinach. Add vinegar and... Sign in to see full entry.

Home made tacos

Tacos are relatively easy to make. They taste best if you fry corn tortillas in oil until they are in between crispy and soft. This I'm certain isn't hard but takes practice. Our friends Steve and Nicole who have Mexican grandmothers learned how to do it from youth. They do it well. Add fried ground... Sign in to see full entry.
