Clam potato chowder isn’t something I ever thought I’d make. I’m not fond of clams at all. But, you know, I have kids. And they like things. Small Fry, as it turns out, loves clams. Mr. Meaty also loves clam chowder. Tall Fry and I do not love clam chowder. So, this creamy clam potato […]
We took an amazing family trip to Universal and Disney during the fall and something unexpected happened in Diagon Alley. I fell in love with a bowl of beef stew, Guinness Beef Stew. The Leaky Cauldron was my favorite restaurant that we visited on that trip. And we visited some great ones! At the other […]
I big puffy heart Indian food. But, alas, with my dairy and grain-free diet, it’s a little difficult to eat out at an Indian restaurant at the moment. Plus, I’m doing this War on Debt thing so it’s not in the budget. One of our favorite easy curry chicken dishes (which we used to do […]
Our family holiday meal tradition is a little different. Since my sister and I both chose to be vegetarians throughout much of our youth, Mom made a mean cheese lasagna for Christmas dinner. Now, I can’t eat traditional pasta but I do eat a little more meat. So this year, for Christmas Eve dinner, we’re […]
This recipe was a HUGE hit. I think it’d also be awesome with chickpeas. The girls wanted “popcorn and chicken” for lunch. So we made popcorn chicken. 🙂
Crispiness is an absolute must for hashbrowns. But how to achieve it is a bit of a debate. I’ve done crispy hashbrowns before, but it involved broiling and was a little more complicated that I’m capable of early in the mornings. I’m not the best at waking up and making breakfast. Luckily, I have a husband who likes to make breakfast or we’d likely starve until lunch. He actually found this wonderful perfect hashbrowns technique.
This White Pizza Dip is soooo delicious. It’s like cheesy tomatoey garlicky crack. It may be my new favorite dip. I absolutely love it when I get a big hunk of roasted garlic. And the kids and Mr. Meaty really liked this dip, too.
Day 294. My version of arroz con pollo would more accurately be called “Arroz con Garbanzo,” but it’s converted from the original so I’m sticking with that. I’ve always been a little wary of dishes that cook the rice in the pan or in the CrockPot or whatever cooking utensils you’re using. I can make […]
Day 264. I am a huge fan of all things Mexican, and tortilla soup is one that I’ve always enjoyed. But, alas, it almost always has some sort of chicken or other meat when you try to order it out. I’ve made a taco soup with ground beef substitute, but hadn’t yet tried a […]
I adore Indian food. And Butter Chicken is one of those classic Indian restaurant favorites that I regularly try to emulate at home. I haven’t perfected the delicious sauce yet, but I keep trying. This is another attempt, this time based on a recipe from Sanjeev Kapoor.
