When I saw this recipe here I knew I had to give it a shot. And WOW is it good! And quick! I had supper on the table in 20 minutes, seriously; this is a fantastic weeknight meal.
You will need:
2-4 pork chops (I use bone-in when possible for better flavor) 2 Tbsp. butter [...]
I may have actually squealed in delight when I saw how cute these turned out. Just maybe.
I found the recipe over at Annie’s Eats and knew I had to give it a shot. The love my sister and I have for cherry limeades at Sonic is somewhat legendary. She actually lived in LA (that’s [...]
Time for another episode of COOKING FAIL.
I read somewhere (of course I can’t find it now, so you’ll all think I made this up; I swear I didn’t) that one could DIY a pain de mie pan by covering a loaf pan with a cookie sheet and then something heavy, like bricks. Since I [...]
Does that make it Yankee Chicken Parmesan? Like Yankee Pot Roast? But he consulted Alton Brown for part of the preparation, and Alton is from Georgia, so…. Hmm. It WAS good eats, if I do say so myself.
Anyway, I took The Kiddo upstairs to play, and came back down to this:
The picture [...]
As with most of my recipes, this one is cobbled together from a few different recipes. It is not, however, cobbled together from old Stuckey’s buildings (20 imaginary points to the first person who gets that).
Further, also as with most of my recipes, The Yankee loved it and The Kiddo ran screaming. I try [...]
I haven’t made homemade pizza dough in years, and the King Arthur Flour recipe was just staring me in the face. What’s a girl to do? Get cooking, obviously!
I cut the recipe in half because just The Yankee and I would be eating it (as discussed, The Kiddo doesn’t like anything), and it made [...]
As I understand it, this recipe came from, or at the very least appeared in, Cook’s Illustrated. It came to me, however, printed on a white sheet of paper and tucked into my favorite Christmas present of 2008: a Le Creuset 6 3/4 Quart French oven. After eating this bread The Yankee pronounced that the [...]
Does this make me Sandra Lee?
My in-laws were in town and I wanted to make some cornbread to go with the tortilla soup. The Yankee likes his cornbread total Southern style, no foolin’ around with it.
The Yankee wasn’t here.
So, in the names of convenience and experimentation, and inspired by a recipe [...]
Some of my very favorite kids came over to play yesterday — a nine year old boy and five year old twin girls, and of course two year old Kiddo is a permanent fixture. The girls’ favorite game at my house is, “Hey can we make… (pause while scanning inventory of my [...]
I love a good cooking challenge. And yowza was risotto a challenge at first. I know what you’re thinking: oh, like stirring is so hard? No, in and of itself, it’s not. However stirring for 25 minutes with a two year old in the kitchen? That’s a challenge.
As I say, though, I like a [...]
