Baked Kale Chips. New favourite Snack Food!

So for those of you that know me; you know about my GINORMOUS sweet tooth. And for some of you that *really* know me you know that my dinners used to include were basically Cadbury Creme Eggs, Oreos and Cherry Coke. But alas; time marches on and one’s metabolism slows down. Mine is slowed down to the point where I look at a Creme Egg in the lineup at Target and I gain 20 pounds. Le sigh. Enter in : KALE I had never even heard of kale until a…

Roasted Cauliflower – (Not a quilt pattern, a recipe)

Okay. If you’d told me last week I’d not only be roasting and eating an entire head of cauliflower for dinner I’d think you were having a wack attack. Tonite I did just that – I used the most FABULOUS recipe from a even more FABULOUSER (it is so a word. I just made it up) lady who blogs out Cleveland way…..”Clean Eats, Fast Feets” – I highly recommend checking it out.  I’ve used several of her recipes and never been disappointed. My all time fav recipe for how to…

Happy New Year and Chicken Soup!

Okay so I know it’s not exactly NEW Year’s anymore but…hey, we’re only ten days in, so it’s still pretty new. It’s been a crazy couple of months here – with holidays, ice storms, snow storms, working retail, then WOOHOO getting a icky yucky cold. I hate being sick. Who doesn’t!

Institutions are so drab and grey ( and don’t even ask about the smell….ack) so I found  some super…

I didn’t take pics, sorry. This dish wasn’t around long enough! Maple Syrup Chicken with Sweet Onion and Rice Ingredients: Rice ( I used basmati)Chicken bouillion cube 2 Skinless…

Could eat them everyday (and I have been.) And I don’t mean the shipped-from-California or Florida ones that have sat on truck for 5 days after being picked and processed etc etc.  I mean the grown 10 minutes from my house kind that you get in the local market for those three magical weeks late June to early July. The smell of fresh strawberries…that…

Recently I’ve noticed the trend of “cake batter” in a lot of baking recipes. And hey; who doesn’t like licking the cake batter during the mixing stages right off the spoon? (Please tell me it’s not…

Hearty Beefy Onion Soup

I must be really attuned to my Inner Furry Woodland Creature Instincts. That’s gotta be it. Why else as soon as Fall hits do I have this incredible urge to gather & preserve food for the winter? So yeah, that must be it. Last week was the Gumbo this week it’s Soup. Warning; there may be more posts to come…..:) This recipe is yummy, smells great whilst cooking, and is unbelievably easy. And especially take advantage of your local farmer’s markets as fall staples are SUPER cheap right now. Perfect…
