I have basically zero experience cooking steak. It intimidates me and comes across as very much in the Man Zone of Cooking – something to be left to my husband who knows what he’s doing. We also rarely buy it because, well, steak is expensive. And there are a lot of different cuts that mean nothing to me. But when I saw this this delicious, … Continue reading momma cooks: four cheese tortellini alfredo with steak so easy, anyone can make it!
So several moons ago I stumbled across this waffle recipe over at The Pioneer Woman’s Tasty Kitchen. It’s by Matt who writes at Any Ideas for Dinner? And basically – the recipe was so rocking that we quickly decided to make it our regular waffle recipe. Then I started tweaking it and some of those tweaks became regular tweaks and now really my recipe and … Continue reading Momma Cooks: Yummy Waffles I Could Make Blindfolded
This French Onion Soup recipe is so easy to make and absolutely delicious. It’s a little different from most French onion soup recipes because it uses soy sauce instead of beef broth – though we aren’t still doing a Vegetarian diet, I actually prefer this version to the traditional recipes. It’s also one of the most inexpensive meals in my repertoire as most of the … Continue reading Recipe: Vegetarian French Onion Soup
After lunch the kids and I made sugar cookies with light green frosting and some pretty, Spring colored sprinkles. Okay, if we’re going to be honest, this wasn’t my shining moment in Baking With the Kids, but they did come out pretty and MM did help with some pouring, frosting and sprinkling in between me yelling at him to get out of my kitchen… Oh … Continue reading St Pattys Day Project #2: Spring Cookies To Share
One of my favorite childhood memories is baking peanut butter cookies with my grandmother. She taught me everything I know about baking (and crafting and marrying men who are awesome cooks). But baking peanut butter cookies with grandma was always my favorite activity to share with her growing up. I can still remember her teaching me the infamous “criss cross pattern” for the first time, … Continue reading Baking Delicious Memories
To: Mr Money Bags From: Your Loyal Mixer SUBJECT: my retirement plans That broad of yours keeps trying to force me into mixing these crazy concoctions that I just ain’t cut out to be mixing! I told her my motor wasn’t strong enough, but she just kept saying, “Mmm… this rum is tasty. Mix faster, slave!” Simply put, the rum cake was the last stand. … Continue reading a memo from the kitchen appliance department
1. Do you know about these cookies? I found them at my local grocery store and bought them impulsively because they were seriously dirt cheap, plus I’ve learned recently that sometimes “almond” doesn’t mean “filled with nuts” so much as “almond extractish” aka “marzipan” aka “one of my favorite things ever in the universe” and you know what? These cookies are amazing and I didn’t … Continue reading Two things.
One of the many amazing things my MIL is known for is her holiday rum cakes. They are so amazing that people have been known to beg for them annually to the point where she is now responsible for baking a couple dozen each holiday season for all of her loved ones. I’m not exaggerating when I say that she might be Wonder Woman. Unfortunately, … Continue reading Aloha: Bundt Cakes
We got a small pumpkin for each kid this year. A teeny tiny for our tiniest kid and a slightly larger pumpkin for our slightly larger kid. This is her first real pumpkin experience. Of course she has no idea what a pumpkin is yet (a food? a throwing object? a pillow? a teether? all of the above?) but she did instantly seem to understand … Continue reading Pumpkin Central.
