Looking forward to finding more ways to eat well on a budget, and serving up fabulous recipes that (usually) keep your waistline and wallet nice and trim.
I really wish I were more politically astute.
These days there are no less than 7 pieces of election-related mail pieces greeting me each time I open my mailbox, 3-4 “vote for this measure” or “don’t vote for this guy” flyers on my front door step, and the occasional brave soul who comes knocking at the door right about the time I’m calling “DINNER” and collecting my kids from out front. Why do they have to ring my doorbell or blow up my phone just as I’m getting dinner on the table?? Read more
I’m totally getting into this whole organic thing.
A lot of people ask me what I do about incorporating organic food into our budget and here’s where I’m at on it: Read more
This is my attempt to make big-time fans out of your husbands, boyfriends, sons and male co-workers.
As you know my defenses have become weakened over the years as far as pork is concerned…starting first with prosciutto, then bacon, then pork tenderloin. I used to work in an office with 7 men who I’m pretty sure dreamed about pork at night. Well, with this recipe you might as well just call me an all-out pork fan. There are just no if’s, and’s or butt’s (no pun intended – well that’s not true…I had been thinking about that one for several minutes) about it. Read more
Remember that time my hard drive decide to roll over and die, holding hostage my thousands of kid/food/life pics?
So instead I’m getting all fancy on you (read: not at all) and including the winemaker’s pic for this fabulous Shiraz find.
I’m hoping and praying that technology and I are better friends next week 🙂
For your consideration: The Black Shiraz
This was quite a fine Australian shiraz find, deep in color and high in alcohol (14.5%). Consistent with the shiraz family, The Black Shiraz has blackberry, spice and plum flavors. It is quite big and bold, (which I LOVED) and therefore stands up well with roasts and strong cheeses.
$6.99 at Trader Joes.
I’m all about loving people through food.
Well, maybe not through casseroles…I’m not sure that’s love 😉 but still…
If there are opportunities to bring meals to new moms, the sick, the elderly, the homebound, families in crisis, you name it, I’m all about it. In part because I love to cook but also because I feel it’s a tangible way to connect with and serve those around me.
Many of you have asked about meals or recipes that are easy to make, nutritious, relatively transportable and don’t break the budget, so without further adieu…here are 6 recipes the are easy to transport, simple to get on the table, and most importantly delicious! Read more
