Gobi Paratha

July 17th, 2009

Gobi Paratha
I sure love Indian food, and lately I have been experimenting with more and more recipes.  I am pretty sure I would be in heaven if I could visit India and enjoy a home-cooked meal (or ten).  I have an Indian friend at work who describes some really amazing foods that she makes and her mother makes and I think I drool every time!

Well, I am (…read more and get the recipe)

Five simple steps to a perfect S’more

July 16th, 2009

 A perfect s’more in six steps

We’ve been backpacking and camping a lot lately.  It is amazing how much better food can taste when you are camping, or after a long hard days worth of backpacking.  I always look forward to breakfast while camping, and dinner while backpacking but my favorite meal is dessert!  What else do you have while camping for dessert but S’mores!

When I was younger my family and I went (…read more and get the recipe)

Sautéed Greens

July 6th, 2009

Sautéed Greens

We just got back from vacation and our garden is teeming with greens.  I love greens.  Last year I planted kale and collards and I became hooked! What was really amazing about them was that they lasted from early summer until the next spring, when I pulled them up.  I couldn’t believe that they survived the snow.  Granted it wasn’t that much snow and our climate is very mild, but still!

This year I (…read more and get the recipe)

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

Homemade Chicken Broth [Updated]

March 15th, 2009

Salt-Free Homemade Chicken Broth Simmering

I was making chicken noodle soup the other today and needed some broth, so I went back and looked through my postings to find a recipe.  I wasn’t really happy with it so I updated it just a little and am re-posting it here.  I hope you enjoy it!

As you may have noticed I don’t use salt that much. I like to use unsalted butter, and I rarely put salt in anything I bake. I found that it is not necessary to add salt in order to have a delicious flavor. When I went on a salt-free kick way back when, I realized that chicken bouillon and store-bought chicken broths have a LOT of sodium (along with pretty much every thing else you buy at the grocery store). So I decided (…read more and get the recipe)

Fried Green Tomatoes

February 15th, 2009

 Fried Green Tomatoes

Way back when, in November, I still had tomatoes coming out my ears.  Believe it or not, but I did.  Half of them were not turning red though so I had to figure out something to do with them.  I thought about making some green tomato salsa or fried green tomatoes and I decided that the fried tomatoes would (…read more and get the recipe)

True Delights

February 15th, 2009

The other day I was pleasantly surprised to receive some samples in my mailbox from Foodbuzz and their partnership with Quaker.  Foodbuzz has partnered with a bunch of food bloggers, like me, and occasionally send samples as long as we promise to write a review.  They don’t control what I write, as long as (…read more and get the recipe)
