Insert high-pitched, not-quite-sure-what-it-tastes-like voice when reading the title. Last night a friend of mine sent a recipe to me. It sounded delicious and I just so happened to have all of the ingredients in my kitchen. I also just happened to have bought a hand mixer so I thought this would be the perfect recipe … Continue reading Chocolate Pudding????
I've had a parsnip or two in my life, but never have I ever prepped them or cooked them. They've always magically appeared on my plate, i.e.; my husband made them. This time I made them. What started out as a nice, lovely, refreshing surprise, has turned into something I can't get removed from my … Continue reading Lemons to Pits….
So, you know how we've had some trouble keeping fish alive? Not anymore..... Apparently, PetSmart sold us a pregnant fish....she had two babies. Here is one of them. At first I was pretty mad about it. But look how dang cute it is!!! I did some more searching on the interwebs to find out … Continue reading Uh-oh…..
Note: This post has nothing to do with lobster bisque, other than that part it played in the irony of life. If you follow me on Facebook, then you'll know what I'm talking about. Look, I'm not going to pretend that I know how to take care of aquatic life creatures, even more so pretend … Continue reading We’ve Lost A Few Good Fish This Year
I'll just cut to the chase: The best part about this meal was that I got to use the new lemon juicer that I mentioned here. I was so proud of myself for being in the midst of grocery shopping and deciding how fancy I was going to get with taco night. Initially, I was … Continue reading Knock-Off Chipotle Night
For a while now I've been trying to be a plant-based vegan. I have my ups and downs, but generally being meat free has made me feel better. Surprisingly, I usually lose 5 pounds every time I hop back on the vegan train. I'll have a moment of weakness (Thanks, Chick-Fil-A), and then kind of … Continue reading Enchilada Casserole, Not Entirely Unlike Shrimp Soup.
I FINALLY learned my lesson with lemons. After multiple attempts to juice a lemon and fishing out seeds from the dish I was preparing, I finally won the seed battle. See that? Know what that is? That is a lemon turned right side up before I squeezed it. Oh yeah! Lesson learned: You still … Continue reading Not Today, Satan!
Normally, my husband makes pancakes on the weekends. He's amazing at it. He knows the right milk to mix ratio, the right cooking temperature, and even how to get the size of each pancake just perfect. I, on the other hand, have no idea how to make pancakes. I can read the directions and they … Continue reading Happy Father’s Day! Here are your water crêpes!
It's not as good, or purposeful, as you might think. Tonight, I made shrimp and grits, with some added ingredients because I'm not one to waste perfectly good vegetables. That being said, it still did not make up for the overwhelming amount of liquid in my shrimp and grits. The problem being that I'm lazy, … Continue reading Shrimp Soup
I seriously do not learn from my hard lessons in cooking. Remember when I posted about how insanely difficult it was to fish lemon seeds out of a blender? Yeah, well, I didn't really learn my lesson because I freaking did it again! I mean, seriously....what is wrong with me? Here I am on my second … Continue reading Oops, I did it again….
