Homemade Green Bean Casserole

Homemade Green Bean Casserole

So, here’s a recipe for green bean casserole. It does not use canned soup. It does not used canned onions. It’s all from scratch. 100%. I confess that green bean casserole wasn’t a thing on our Thanksgiving table. It just…wasn’t. We ate our green beans […]

Sunday Somethings

Hello, Sunday. This week finally had a sustained feeling of fall, and I’ve very much enjoyed the brisk walk to work or around campus each day. Let’s hope it lasts, sans rain! This upcoming weeks is looking to be busier, both in and out of […]

Sourdough Leek Dressing

Sourdough Leek Dressing

Hello friends. I’m so surprised and a bit saddened that, thanks to commercialism, we’ve jumped right over Thanksgiving. I ran to Target last night to pick up some on-sale candy corn (fail) when I was hit smack in the face by this year’s Christmas village. […]

Mustard Thyme Roasted Turkey Breast

Mustard Thyme Roasted Turkey Breast

A Thanksgiving recipe. I know. Already! But today is November 1st, and if I want to stay on track with all that I want to share with you before Thanksgiving comes with its turkey and sides and leftovers, gotta start early.  Bear with me, and […]

Hello, Sunday. This week? What was this week? I don’t even know what happened with this week. Clearly forgettable and therefore, we’re moving on. I think my mind has already started to veer towards the holidays. I know! Hate me. I hate myself. While I won’t […]

Drunken Irish Hot Chocolate

Drunken Irish Hot Chocolate

It’s that time of the year. We need the hot chocolate. And, just in case, to make sure we stay nice and toasty warm from the inside out, we need some booze in it. While it means the loss of my glorious post-work outdoor tennis […]

Monday Musings

Hello, Monday. This week was a bit tiring. I had my first work trip, and as we all know, one day out of the normalcy of our routines throws the rest out of whack.  I needed the weekend to regroup and make peace with Crawley, who […]

Thai Sweet Potato Soup

Thai Sweet Potato Soup

Friends! We’ve made it to Friday.  We all deserve a 30-minute or less meal, and here’s the one. I’ve been on a soup kick and it shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. So as much as I bombard you with ice cream recipes […]

Oat Bread

Oat Bread

It was cold, gloomy, rainy weekend past up here, and the thing to do when all outside plans cease to be a possibility is bake. Cook. Tie on an apron, crank up some tunes (in my case, for this particular recipe, The Beach Boys) and […]

Sunday Somethings

Sunday Somethings

Hello, Sunday. It’s been a gloomy pair of days this way, and I’ve made the most of it by doing all the inside things that tend to get ignored from doing: closets are straightened, laundry is done, den is tidy(er).  I made some bread, which […]
