Sorry guys, I don’t have a recipe for you today… Truth is, I haven’t had much time to write or cook in the past couple of days. I’ve been busy doing other very important things, you see? Indeed, my daughter gave birth to our beloved and eagerly awaited little Matilde, my first grand-child, early yesterday morning. I was blessed enough […]
If you guys don’t mind, I’ll be very brief tonight. My daughter is here, the contractions have started a few hours ago, so it looks like we’ll be heading out to the hospital sometime soon. As you can very well imagine, I’m a bundle of nerves and writing doesn’t come all that naturally… Besides, I don’t think […]
For our Christmas family reunion this year, I was asked to contribute a… salad. Yep, you read that one right: a salad! At first, I was like “WHAT?” who in the world eats salad on Christmas day? It sure was never a part of *my* traditional Holiday Menu. But then I started thinking. My mind […]
For months now, I’ve had beef heart on my list of recipes to try. And for months now, every time I opened the freezer or looked at my beef inventory sheet, I’d be reminded that I still had not one, but 2 beef hearts that were patiently waiting to be used up. I mean it is one thing […]
Like it or not, it’s already December, which means Christmas is just around the corner. Of course, the stores have already filled up their shelves and displays with all kinds of treats, munchies, candies and other sweet delights. There’s no avoiding it: everywhere you go, you get bombarded with countless temptations. Try as you might, it’s very hard not to succumb to all […]
Guess what you guys? I’ve got another Vitamix recipe for you today! Are you at all surprised? I thought not… Hey, I get the feeling that I’ll be playing with this new toy A LOT, so you know, it is to be expected that a few of my experiments will make it on here! One of the […]
I don’t know what got into me lately… I think I may be coming down with the flu or something! Seriously, this is the second time in as many weeks that I come up with a vegetarian recipe. As in completely, totally free of any kind of meat! First came this Creamy Mushroom Sauce over Spaghetti Squash, […]
For years, I’d been toying with the idea of getting my hands on one of those beautiful machines that’s known as a Vitamix… But I always resisted the temptation, first and foremost because I wanted to keep my recipes accessible and thought that most people out there did not own a Vitamix and therefore wouldn’t […]
Looks like I’m getting a lot of inspiration from my daughter lately… remember my Classic Meatloaf? That one wouldn’t have come to life had it not been for her. Since she moved out of the house and in with her boyfriend, she’s been cooking a heck of a lot more, and so we often exchange […]
I’m feeling a bit under the weather, today. I’ve been particularly tired, to the point that I almost considered taking an afternoon nap, which is something I just don’t ever do. To me, naps are an awful waste of time and I always feel like half my day has been stolen from me when I wake […]
Creamy Mushroom Sauce over Spaghetti Squash, a vegetarian dish that truly delivers and will have you hooked with the very first bite.
I’ve been loving on squash, lately.. like big time! I just can’t seem to get enough of ’em. Good thing I’m not doing keto anymore, ‘cuz I would’ve kicked myself out of it for sure. Euhm, wait! Now that I think of it, I think I may have quit precisely BECAUSE squash was coming in season. Well, […]
I gotta give it to you, this Slow Cooker Lemon Thyme Chicken is far from being a contender for the Sexiest Looking Chicken Ever contest… and well, poor thing, I can’t say that I really helped it with my photography either. The thing is, it caught me on one of those days, you know: poor lighting, low appetite, […]
