Baked Cauliflower and Farro

In Washington, DC today it was a beautiful 71 degrees F! in February! We took a scenic 2 hour walk and just before we made it home, my favorite, friendly black and white cat Thomas was sunbathing and taking a nap on a car. I called to him and he came down to greet me…

Armenian Cheesy Rice

So I guess everyone is buying or cooking up some game munchies and getting ready to sit back and watch the Superbowl, host or hang out with friends. I am doing no such thing. That’s right. Gasp! I don’t watch the Superbowl or much of any sports for that matter and have right about now…

Stuffed and Pan-Fried Zucchini Flowers

For years at the Farmers market I would see these zucchini blossoms/flowers and wonder what the heck you do with them. Sure they look pretty but can you cook with them and eat them. A co-worker told me you can stuff them but I didn’t think they had the capacity to be thoroughly stuffed. You…

Duck Eggs Over Easy on a Lazy Sunday

So… I haven’t blogged in a while due to my lazy ass nature but I’m back and ready to quack your ears off. A month or so ago I tried duck eggs for the first time. I didn’t know exactly what to expect–I mean, I knew it would kinda taste like regular eggs but different…

Lil’ bit of it all ‘Pasta Bake’

For once, I decided to get a bit creative and not follow a recipe. I had some cooked Farfalle pasta in the freezer and stuff I needed to use in the fridge and I was starving so I got to work. Now, I did not make anything grand or sophisticated. Just a simple dish with…

Butternut Mac and Cheese

Ah, it’s not food it’s a plant! Yes, take a minute and admire my gorgeous Christmas Cactus, which will bloom about twice a year or whenever the heck it feels like it. Now, onto food! Mac and Cheese is great! Wonderfully creamy and fattening. *Smacks lips*. If you add onions and butternut squash, it is…

White Chicken Chili

It is as if I am on the prowl for recipes and food. My co-worker mentions a delicious white chicken chili recipe that she made in her crock pot and I immediately snap to attention. I tell myself that I have a slow cooker and then I ask for the recipe. What could be better…

Chipotle Chicken Stuffed Brown Sugar Roasted Acorn Squash

Say ‘Chipotle Chicken Stuffed Brown Sugar Roasted Acorn Squash’ quickly and over and over again… OR just make and eat it! Okay, so I used this amazing looking recipe and changed it due to the size of my squash and because I was very, very hungry..but what else is new, huh. I omitted the spinach…

PIZZA!

Who doesn’t love pizza, especially homemade. The Fourth of July holiday weekend has come and long gone but I did not have time to post what I had made until now. The reason for that was an unexpected family medical emergency. All is thankfully okay and I have some time so I thought I would…
