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…

Making Tamales & memories…

Greetings fellow foodie friends! It’s mid-November here in Minnesota and we’ve yet to really see any Winter, which is just fine by me! But, my body-clock knows it’s almost here, because I am craving soups, macaroni & cheese, any pasta dish for that matter and bread and cheese. Oof! I’ve decided that instead of being all proud of myself for knowing how to whip up … Continue reading Making Tamales & memories…

Summer of Salads, greens…

Welcome to my #summerofsalads post number TWO! Today, we talk greens. Yes, salads can be made without the use of greens, but the type of “salads” we eat most, are those where the base is some sort of greens. Later on we’ll talk about pasta, grain, legume & other non-greens salads. I had hoped to include dressings in the post, but there are so many variables … Continue reading Summer of Salads, greens…
