I don’t know why, but doing super housewifey things is really fun to me. Except cleaning, that all around sucks. We bought a deep freeze when we moved to Colorado, and we’ve been slowing filling it up. At the moment, I work late once or twice a week to attend meetings. I’m stocking the freezer […]
Aside from the terrible name, these sandwiches are delicious. They’re super easy and great party food. The traditional recipe is ham and Swiss, but roast beef with cheddar and turkey and muenster are also fantastic. For the sandwiches: 24 King’s Hawaiian Rolls (2 12-roll packages) 24 slices deli sliced Honey Ham 24 slices deli sliced […]
These cheese fries are easy to make and amazing. Another successful Pinterest find. They’re perfect for watching football or as a party-sized appetizer. Gather: 1 package of frozen fries or tater tots 2 cups of shredded Cheddar cheese 6 sliced of cooked bacon, diced 1/2 cup of sour cream 1/4 cup of milk 2 tbsp. […]
I mentioned last week that I was going to make some freezer meals, and I finally got around to it yesterday. When it happened to be 90 degrees and sunny. I’m a great planner. I planned five meals: baked ziti, enchiladas, manicotti, lasagna rolls, and stuffed shells. Mac loves pasta, so I made dishes that […]
Another Virginia Tech recipe here. I was curious why my personal recipe tasted different from West End’s until I found the recipe in A Taste of Virginia Tech. My recipe uses breadcrumbs, West End’s does not. Either way is good, but I like the bread-less version better. Gather: 4 medium tomatoes 2 tbsp. of olive […]
Michie Tavern is a historic tavern in Charlottesville, Virginia. We stopped for lunch one day many years ago when I was visiting colleges (yes, this die-hard Hokie visited that other school in Virginia). My mom loved their food so much, she bought their cookbook. These green beans are quite tasty and are a different twist […]
This dip was inspired by Mac who was wandering in the kitchen looking for food. And what’s not to like? We have cheese, bacon, ranch dressing. All good in this hood.
I nominate myself for the longest blog post title of the year award.
I was watching the Barefoot Contessa the other day, and Ina made this recipe as a twist on her usual Friday night chicken. It’s your standard dip in a liquid then in breadcrumbs, but you mix white wine and a Dijon or other flavorful mustard together. Aside from the fact that I massively overcooked it […]
This is my preferred pasta salad recipe. I made it last week for our FRG potluck, and it was one of three sides (for like 150 people). The recipe is really easy to double or triple: it’s basically 2 parts pasta to 1 part everything else. Enjoy!
