For the last several weeks, I’ve been tinkering with this recipe and making it our own. Besides the gargantuan portion size of this recipe, I get to serve it in adorable 14 oz. red stoneware ramekins [see below]. I found these little beauties at Target for $10 per pair – one of the best purchases […]


Pasta Pomodoro

I can’t say enough about this recipe, except that I inhaled it in less than 3 minutes. The serving size is ENORMOUS, the flavor is dynamite, it’s low-cal and low-fat, and you can make it in less than 30 minutes. One bite of this recipe and the husband and I decided this one was our […]

Arroz Con Pollo

I’d been looking around for a workable, mostly authentic Mexican recipe for us. Hindrance: We lack the space, tools, and cookware necessary to make many truly authentic Mexican meals. This recipe is as close as I’ve gotten, and in my opinion, it’s about as close as you’ll get from a typical American kitchen. What makes […]
