Valentine’s Day Shrimp Cocktail

Wednesday, February 9, 2011

Before you call me cheesy, isn’t Valentine’s Day all about being cheesy? Excessive hearts, everything in red and pink, cute and cuddly bears, and more sweets than we can handle. Somehow shrimp just popped into my head in a heart-shaped image. Of course, I am in love and so these thoughts come easily. Each shrimp […]

Rosemary Turkey Meatloaf

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

Meatloaf ain’t pretty but a good one is so tasty, moist, and comforting. It fills in those spaces left by the winter blues and it can be all that without being a heavy and fatty meal. This meatloaf is so tender, you could eat it after your wisdom teeth are pulled. It’s so moist, you […]

Some of those recipes are great and I […]

Lemonade by the Glass

Thursday, July 8, 2010

This kitchen process is taking a lot longer than expected and we haven’t even started demolition yet! Luckily, I go to my mom’s once a week to get her Chinese recipes, but when I’m home, I’m still using only plug-in appliances (rice cooker, toaster oven, panini press, waffle maker, microwave, etc.) I didn’t foresee having […]

Horseradish Cream

Tuesday, July 6, 2010

Finally! We moved, but it’s not all smooth sailing yet. We’re living out of boxes and we don’t have a kitchen yet. While our perfect kitchen is being built (which we will be talking about soon), I’m going to have to get crafty. I do have many plug-in appliances (rice cooker, toaster oven, panini press, […]
