Looking forward to leftovers…

I may have mentioned this before, but I LOVE to cook! I am not perfect, but sometimes, when I have the time, I do pretty darn good! I listen to alot of food podcasts and over the past year I kept hearing about Pomegranate Molasses, so I decided to order some and make something with it. This recipe, for one-pan Pomegranate Chicken was perfect, although … Continue reading Looking forward to leftovers…

Cream of Roasted Mushroom soup~

Wow, what a week it has been! 😬 I hope this finds you doing well, staying healthy!  I have to admit, I really never thought I would live in a time like we are living in today…last night at Midnight, the state of Minnesota went into “stay-at-home” status…shelter-in-place…lockdown…whatever you want to call it.  I have basically doing just that for the past two weeks…now I … Continue reading Cream of Roasted Mushroom soup~

Homemade Gyro’s~

My first experience with this delicious sandwich was many years ago, when I lived in Iowa. I had a couple of food memories created in those years…the most amazing fried Pork Tenderloin sandwich, that I used to get from my local Hy-Vee deli counter…that sucker came on a standard hamburger bun, slathered with mayo, and layered with lettuce and pickles.  The Pork patty itself was … Continue reading Homemade Gyro’s~

Goulash, like the good ol’ days…

I grew up in a little river town, in southeastern Minnesota…at least for the years of my life I remember anyway.  I was born in Iowa and lived there until I was starting Junior High School… This dish, has all the feels for me…I remember crowding around a little table, in the middle of a tiny kitchen that also served as the back entrance of … Continue reading Goulash, like the good ol’ days…

Open Arms of Minnesota – Harvest Pop-up Dinner…

Last night, my husband and I had the opportunity to attend the Harvest Pop-up Dinner, hosted by Open Arms of Minnesota, a nonprofit that cooks and delivers free, nutritious meals to people living with life-threatening illnesses in the Twin Cities.  Each year, they “host intimate, multi-course feasts prepared by our talented chefs. For one night at a time, our beautiful facility in South Minneapolis transforms … Continue reading Open Arms of Minnesota – Harvest Pop-up Dinner…

Hazed & confused…but it was SO fun!

This past week, the hubby and I took in the Growler Magazine’s event in St. Paul, called Unlabeled: A Blind Tasting Beer Festival. This is a brand new kind of beer festival series, never before seen in Minnesota (or the U.S. for that matter!) which consisted of a blind tasting of 48 (plus one bonus beer they added at the last minute!) Hazy IPA’s from … Continue reading Hazed & confused…but it was SO fun!

Zucchini Coconut Bread~

One of my favorite times of the Summer is when the Zucchini harvest is in full effect…grilled, frittered, put into bread & brownies etc. etc. I love it!  I found this recipe at Two Peas and their Pod, just randomly one day, looking for coconut recipes.  The original recipe calls for AP and whole wheat flour, but I have always made it with straight AP … Continue reading Zucchini Coconut Bread~

Life is busy…

It’s been just over a year since I last wrote here…that’s terrible!  2016 was a business & family focused year…and honestly, I’ve missed playing with my food!  😜 I didn’t spend much time trying new recipes either, but instead just kept plugging along with our usual favorites.  Sometimes that’s just the easiest route, you know?  This year however, I have decided we need to thin out … Continue reading Life is busy…

Oh these bars…Banana…Brown Butter…

Well hello there friends and Happy New Year!  I can say that for another three days, right?!  Then we flip the calendar to February already!  Eek! This past month has flown by…I’ve been trying to keep my New Year “intentions” going (I like that word better than resolution…doesn’t feel as stressful to me!), along with getting myself organized for another busy year in Real Estate … Continue reading Oh these bars…Banana…Brown Butter…
