  1. so proud of my thirteen year old son, the budding chef. he made brussell sprouts and sausage, vanilla bean ice cream for dessert.
  2. Soba, those brussel sprouts are a thing of beauty. I keep forgetting to thank you! my mom is a vegetarian, and you give me such inspiration when I cook for her. thank you!
  3. I was very intrigued by a recipe I found called eight can taco soup. It was stupidly easy, and we were having a very brutal cold snap so I figured, what the heck, I'll give it a whirl. this made an enourmous amount of wonderful soup! Even my son loved it, he's autistic and notoriously hard to feed sometimes. it got better the next day, and the leftovers froze perfectly.. You simply combine all the ingredients, bring to a boil, cover and simmer for a few minutes, that is it. you can serve with taco chips, sour cream and/or some cheese on the top, you can make it hotter or milder, whatever you prefer. I happened to use a cup of frozen corn in place of the canned corn. I also assume you can sub the chicken out for another, equal amount of other meat/seafood, etc, but I did not. I'm going to make this again, very soon. Ingredients: 1 (15 oz.) can black beans, drained and rinsed 1 (15 oz.) can pinto beans, drained and rinsed 1 (14.5 oz.) can petite diced tomatoes, drained 1 (15.25 oz.) can sweet corn, drained 1 (12.5 oz.) can white chicken breast, drained 1 (10.75 oz.) can cream of chicken soup 1 (10 oz.) can green enchilada sauce 1 (14 oz.) can chicken broth 1 packet taco seasoning
  4. Popcorn. me and my son love popcorn. and I also eat olives and cheese.
  5. Offal here too. shellfish, but that's an allergy, so... and game. I know, I'm a cheap date.
  6. Oh, God yes. They are proof God loves us and wants us to be happy. And Cheese corn. yes, Dan Dee cheese corn.
  7. In a wierd way, this is using up Thanksgiving leftovers... I had a lot of sour cream and whipped cream leftover, as well as some lovely canned organic apricots, so I made a Blancmage of sorts, using both cherry and strawberry Jell-0. It had a lovely taste, very smooth and both tart and sweet..

    Dinner! 2012

    Very nice, everyone! Such inspiration here. Tonight, I made a quiche with two cheeses, parmesan and cheddar, and some really nice ham my sister gave us. Note the turkey guarding it jealously. He figures if we eat quiche, he's safe. Served with fresh sweet potatos. I didn't use to mind canned sweet potatos, but these have totally spoiled me now. Served to my son Ross, my best critic ( Because he loves everything.)

    Dinner! 2012

    Tonight, I did a stuffed acorn squash, the filling was sage sausage, fresh picked apples and sweet onion, with a touch of maple syrup. Our side was a rice dish with chicken broth and a white sauce mixed together. It came out nice and creamy!

    Dinner! 2012

    Thanks Kim! I finally got a camera and I'm looking forward to more photo adventures. I don't find you food dull at all, the opposite actually, you cook real food and you always put imagination and love into it, and it shows. The potatos look amazing, I'm doing something along those lines for Thanksgiving.

    Dinner! 2012

    Today I made a pizza with pepperoni, two cheeses, mozz and parm, and some really nice mild sweet onion. got a nice crust on it too. it was good.
  12. Those Hippos are almost too cute to eat.... I found the new coconut flavored three musketeers bar, and while it tasted okay, much to my surprise and dissapointment, it was artificially flavored with no real coconut at all. oh well.
  13. Hi to Kim and all!! At the grocery yesterday, they were giving out samples of Campbells new sauces for chicken. I swear we never buy sample stuff ,but these were so good. I made it today with buy one get one free chicken breasts, and I added apple slices from when we went apple picking, and fresh mushrooms. it was so good, Breakfast? Well, yeah: LOL.
  14. Peanut butter on toast, dark toast, with butter. No jam.
  15. really.,crusty white bread. Toasted, to the well done stage. Buttered with real butter. peanut butter on both sides, then some really wonderful jam,. (Right now, it's apricoit ) jam on the other side. Put them both together, count to ten, then eat.
  16. Oh, yes, Marmite buttered toast is proof God loves us.

    Easter Menus

    This year, I decided to let my twelve year old dictate, and help with the meal. since my mom is a vegetarian, we're going to do a nice ham steak for me and the lad. also Green bean mushroom cass. Yes, THAT one.. hee. Smashed sweet potatos oven roast of white potatos Rolls and butter Cupcakes. Simple, yes. But everyone will be happy. I'm just not in the mood to fiddle around on the holiday this year, rather cook good old, tried and true food, and relax. We're also doing the easter eggs made out of rice crispie treats hollowed out and filled with jelly beans. Just for fun.
  18. Now, I could be in the wrong culture, but do you sit on the floor and eat with your hands? I'm not sure. My high school girlfried was Lebanese and when we went there, her mom would get so mad if we refused to eat. We were served on a tablecloth on the floor, and God help you if you didn't stuff yourself.
  19. Cukes and onion, dressed with vinegar and sour cream, along with onion slices. Canned mushrooms soaked in italian dressing for a few days, with toothpicks. Trust.

    Dinner! 2012

    kim that is sooo beautiful! beyond words. we had a stew for dinner,the traditional beef, onion carrot potato stew, but nothing as pretty as you had.
  21. My English mum is making these for lunch, ultra thin pancakes, served with lemon juice and sugar. I can hardly wait. Happy shrove Tuesday to all!
  22. I'm assuming the guest of honor is pregnant? Having said that, A lot of pregnant women will not eat anything raw, organ meats, blood, etc. And of course, no alcohol. I'd seriously, just for this event, try and be a little pedestrian for most of the tapas. Or, at least make sure there are things she can eat, as well as avoid. And, I sincerely doubt she will eat fish heads, no disrespect intended.
  23. Well,come see me in Cleveland, Ohio. we don't have much going for us, but I can take you to more places that will serve us a perfect reuben, built to your specs. and so big, you'll be eating the rest of it the next day.
  24. mostly, things that are too much of a pain in the azz to make at home. Battered fried mushrooms, onion rings, really good fries.
