I spent the year of 2009 in Trnava, Slovaka doing some volunteer mission work. My absolute favorite classic Slovak dish is called Bryndzové halušky (pronounced “breend-zoh-vah hah-loosh-key”). It’s simple, yet delicious. Potato dumplings with bacon and bryndza, a soft sheep cheese. A few disclaimers before I continue. I am not Slovak and would never claim that […]
I’m not a vegetarian, nor do I ever plan on becoming one. However, there’s something really nice about sitting down to a big plate of vegetables for dinner.
We all get the blues. There’s no way around it. I looked up what the experts have to say about it and they recommend Vitamins. Up your doses of B, C, and D, they say. Buy a natural-light lamp, get some excersize. All of which are good ideas. Some of them may even work, although […]
I want you to listen to me right now. This is one of the best tasting things I’ve ever cooked. Now, don’t be intimated, and go cook it. This is a dish I always see chefs making and I had never had it before. So here we go!
So Cookware.com gave me a crock pot. How nice! Got it just a few days after I ordered it. Say hello. This isn’t your average slow cooker. I represent the old school. My grandmother has one of these and my mom does too. I’ll show you why it’s special throughout this recipe. When I see crock […]
Here’s a thought: Don’t go to the grocery store after you get your paycheck and when you’re hungry… at the same time. This meal is still relatively cheap, but it could have been a lot cheaper if I didn’t get such a nice piece of salmon. This is the most expensive meal I’ve posted on […]
Despite how simple this dish looks, I’ve gotta say this is on my top 10 most enjoyed meals of this site so far. Call me a meat n’ potatoes kind of girl, or a sucker for grilled chicken, but this was delightful. Skip this part if you’ve already got your grill worked out, I just […]
There are 100 ways to skin a cat, and there are 100 ways to make potato soup; and this is my way. If, like me, it’s the middle of summer in the South, you may be thinking soup sounds gross. Well don’t freak- you’re not bathing in it.
Yet again, I struck gold at the local farmer’s market by purchasing these lovely mini red potatoes. This beautiful, tasty side dish looks absolutely beautiful on your plate next to the main course, and this is as easy as they come! By the way, if you can’t get to farmer’s market, your grocery store may […]
DUDE. This was awesome. It may look a little dry and boring in this picture but believe you me, the flavors were packed with a punch. I’m going to try to make a better effort to give you a heads up of the ingredients you’ll need to make this. I don’t measure stuff- sorry. I […]
Here’s a fancy shmancy little meal to impress that special someone. In my case, that special someone was myself, but whatever. So, cut up a potato, toss it in a splash of olive oil, salt, pepper and rosemary, and space the pieces out on a pan. Heat the oven to broil and stick it in. […]
