Snowed In With A Chinese Five Spice Veggie Stir Fry

So, Sunday the plumbers came and put in our new water heater. We were so excited to have hot water, to finally wash dishes that were stack­ing up, to finally shower. Unfortunately we’d had to wait. For what­ever rea­son our new water heater was wired incor­rectly and as a result had no power. It would […]

A Tasty Start to a Cold, Wet Day

Today was sup­posed to be won­der­ful. It bliz­zarded big time here yes­ter­day. Er, big time for Nashville. We got 5 – 6″ fol­lowed by about a quarter-inch of ice on top of that. As a result, we had a lovely day of nothin’-doin’ planned for stay­ing inside. Well, not exactly nothin’-doin’. There are a few chores and […]

I’m Back! And I Made Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs with Home-Made Sauce!

Okay, I know. It’s been way too long since I’ve posted. I could bore you with many excuses about how I’ve been too busy or how being sick fol­lowed by the major hol­i­days really got the best of me and my time. But in real­ity, my heart just hasn’t been in it. I’m not sure […]

Thanksgiving Leftovers: Spicy Tequila Lime Turkey Tacos

Everybody has expe­ri­enced it. Piles of thanks­giv­ing food left over after the big meal. For days at almost every meal its turkey, dress­ing, pota­toes, etc. Monday I took a big plate of every­thing we had at Thursday’s Thanksgiving feast to work with me for lunch. It was still really good, but it had lost its […]

Thanksgiving, Family and Food. And a Recipe!

I hope every­one had a great Thanksgiving. I know we did, but we almost didn’t. A few weeks ago I came down with the swine flu which then turned into pleurisy. For more than the last two weeks I have been in bed. I didn’t really leave the bed or couch unless i needed to […]

Spicy Pumpkin Curry Soup

Lately, with the weather going fur­ther and fur­ther towards win­ter here in Nashville, we have been crav­ing foods with warmth. Especially Megan, who could die from hypother­mia in 70º weather. And I’m not just talk­ing about food that is served warm. Megan had the idea for this spicy, India-inspired pump­kin soup that sounded like it […]

Apple Pie-O-Lantern and Spiked Spiced Cider

With fall apon us (and threat­en­ing to sur­ren­der us com­pletely to win­ter), few things sound bet­ter to me right now than warm baked goods uti­liz­ing the fruits that are in sea­son. For dessert last night, Megan made this awe­somely adorable and sea­son­ally appro­pri­ate apple pie-o-lantern. There wasn’t much to it, store bought crust, Megan’s mom’s […]

Pumpkin Spice Pancakes with Shaved Dark Chocolate

After the weeks of glo­ri­ous win­ter squashes from the CSA, this last week we finally got a pump­kin! We instantly started mak­ing a list of dishes want to use it for. Pumpkin bread, soup, muffins, pan­cakes, pie, etc. — you get the idea. Fortunately, the pump­kin was large enough that we can use it for a few […]
