My youngest daughter, Jessica, made these cookies when I was visiting her in June 2019. These are some rocking cookies!!
I asked her to provide the recipe for the blog. The original recipe is from Crepes of Wrath. Unlike most other recipes you’ll find here, this one is unchanged from the original. Again, these cookies are excellent.Continue reading
Clam chowder is another of our favorite meals during the colder weather months. This recipe is based on one that arrived in my email inbox about 3-months ago. Like most other recipes we try, we used it as a starting point and have modified it for our palates. The original recipe can be found on the Eating Well website by clicking here.
Have to say this is an easy, fast and very tasty recipe. It only takes about an hour total to put together fresh, homemade soup to impress yourself, family, and friends!Continue reading
While visiting our dear friends Gary and Trisha in September 2019, they made us a fantastic fajita meal. It was fabulous! I mean these are probably the best tasting fajitas we’ve ever enjoyed!
Gary was kind enough to share their recipe with us. And, with their permission, I’m sharing it here. So, give it a try. It’s not hard to make and you’ll be rewarded with a blockbuster dinner!Continue reading
In June 2019 we made an investment in a wood pellet smoker/grill. We choose the Daniel Boone model from Green Mountain Grills. The primary reason we chose this one over other smoker/grills is my first hand experience seeing it in operation while visiting my daughter, son-in-law, and their son. Their grill made impressive chicken and amazing chocolate chip cookies. Yes, chocolate chip cookies. I would never had thought using a smoker/grill to bake cookies. There’s just a hint of smoke flavor in the cookies. Very subtle but you can taste it. Anyway, I digress so back to the title of this post but I’ll post the cookie recipe in the near future.Continue reading
My lady, Colleen, made this soup for me in early 2018. I took a sip and was wowed by the taste. We’ve made it several times since and I love the taste just as much as the first time.
I made this for my son and his family shortly after the first time Colleen made it for me. It turned out well except for a small boo-boo. When I purchased the spinach, I didn’t do a good job of reading the label. Instead of baby spinach, I picked out a spinach and kale combo. It worked but I didn’t care for the texture of the kale in the soup. Anyway, on to the recipe!Continue reading
This is a really tasty recipe that I came across a few years ago. I don’t remember where it came from and I’ve modified it to include more garlic, onions, and parmesan cheese. There’s a fair amount of garlic in this recipe but it tastes so good with the parmesan cheese. It’s just yummy.
I’ve made this many times and it’s always a hit. Also, this recipe scales well. The recipe is enough for 2 to 3 people. For the 2019 New Year’s Eve party we held, I made enough for 14 people with no problem. Just increase everything based on how many potatoes you use. So, on to the recipe!Continue reading
I enjoy a good curry. One of my favorite curries is a recipe I shared in early January 2019 and can be found here. That said, this recipe is another very good one that Colleen made in January 2019.
I’m not certain of the origin of this recipe as a search of the Net came back with lots of hits. For example, Pinterest has loads of posts about this same recipe. The actual title for this recipe is Curry in a F@king Hurry. Note that I chose to drop the “F@cking” from my recipe title.
This is the first recipe I’ve posted that uses an Instant Pot/Pressure cooker. Also, noteworthy, it’s also a vegan recipe.
So, bust out that pressure cooker and make some curry in a hurry. On to the recipe…Continue reading
This recipe comes from my brother in law, Ed. Ed is quite the character (in a good way) and a very accomplished cook. During his life, he’s owned several bar/restaurants that all did well.
He was kind enough to share this recipe with me. This is the tastiest and silkiest spaghetti sauce I’ve ever had the pleasure of eating. Ed claims the secret is to make sure you slice the garlic and slowly sautee it until golden brown. This will give you a great tasting sauce. His claim is true based on my taste buds. Let’s go make some…Continue reading
