Pizza Burgers…Yum!

We had just placed our orders when I saw it on the menu, pizza burger.   I was determined to get one the next time we went. In the meantime, I kept on thinking about those greasy, yet delicious pizza burgers of my past.  The small, local, soft-serve ice cream drive-up where we bought many of […]

Lamb Stuffed Zucchini

There is a recipe in my newly acquired (but actually very old) cookbook, The Fannie Merritt Farmer Boston Cooking School Cookbook for Zucchini Stuffed with Lamb. It is a very brief recipe that leaves the seasoning details up to the reader. Taking inspiration (and the three ingredients mentioned) from the recipe, I developed my own. […]

Big Dutch Baby with Berries

Inspired by a recipe from my experience at the Taste of Home Cooking School, I decided to make a Big Dutch Baby in a more of a traditional method than than the puff pancake recipe demonstrated as part of the school. The Dutch Baby is also known as a German Pancake. It is not Dutch, […]

An Evening at Cooking School

My husband sent me to cooking school last weekend. Okay, so I had been wanting to go to one of the Taste of Home Cooking Schools for probably a decade or more, but I was never able to get tickets and/or not be teaching on the same night as the school before we moved. After […]

For lunch, we usually ate trail bologna and cheese on crackers that we would purchase from a local grocery store.

Grandma’s Corn Fritters

Later this week we will celebrate this post with a cake, but I lacked some basic ingredients needed to bake one today. Why? This is the 100th post on this little, but growing, food blog 🙂 I tried to decide how to celebrate this notable blog world occasion and finally decided on a celebratory cake […]

Veal and Peppers

One of my mother-in-law’s classic dishes is her veal and peppers. I usually do not make it because of the price of veal. However, it can be made using beef or chicken instead. I decided to go for it and make it with veal as a comforting treat for my husband after he was very […]

Umm…Please Use a Clean Spoon

Caution: Rant Ahead Although this blog is about positive food experiences for the most part, I find that I can no longer be silent about a . . .well, let’s call it a pet peeve of mine. I will confess that I like to watch cooking shows.  It started as a child watching Julia Child […]
