Pantry Raid: Tex-Mex Casserole

It was a snowy weekend here in the Northeast. Sounds of plows and shovels could be heard all night and afternoon on Saturday as the snow fell and our development crew worked to clear it out so we could all get out of our homes and on the roads today to go about the day. We are getting another snowfall now, and even more is on the way for later in the week. Me, I am not a cold weather-loving person. Looking at the snowfall is all well and good, but I prefer to stay inside and do that, if at all ... Continue Reading

Meal Delivery Services for the Home Cook: Plated and Blue Apron

My first two meals were swiss chard rolls stuffed with quinoa, goat cheese, and butternut ... Continue Reading

The bottom line is this: ... Continue Reading

Using one of the recipes I found in the book, I made something that I've been craving to eat for a week or two now: potato pancakes. Potato pancakes have ... Continue Reading

Key Ingredient

Are you in need of a good Food Recipe website? When it comes to finding and storing food recipes online, there are many websites that come to my mind. Two I have used and still use from time to time are the Food TV Network website and All Recipes, but there are many, many more out there on the internet that can offer new, fresh recipes and variations to traditional favourites. I was made aware of a new website for storing and browsing through recipes. The website is called Key Ingredient. The ... Continue Reading
