Homemade Sandwich Bread – FAST and EASY

Homemade Sandwich Bread – FAST and EASY

Two words come to mind with this recipe: church, and mom. One day last year when I was pregnant she rushed into church and handed me a bag with a quarter loaf of homemade bread inside, still warm. It was gone before the service ended. In between chews I asked for the recipe, and low...

Easy Maple Glazed Chicken

Easy Maple Glazed Chicken

Oh, chicken breasts. I have a feeling that some of you read posts like this creamy corn and bacon spaghetti and think to yourself, “man, that looks good, but I’ll probably make some chicken breasts”. Why? They’re cheap, they’re healthy, and they’re generally well-received by family members. So here’s a recipe that zazzes (not...

Chocolate Mint Cookies

Chocolate Mint Cookies

My family has made this recipe every Christmas since I can remember. Before I was of much use in the kitchen, my job was to unwrap the Andes Mints. Now I bark at people who come in my kitchen and eat from the bowl of unwrapped Andes Mints. Too much unwrapping has hardened me…

Caramelized Crispy Chocolate Candy

Caramelized Crispy Chocolate Candy

I mean, I love food and it’s my passion, but I got things to do! These caramelized crispies were a GARNISH for...

Breakfast Strata with Shallot and Spinach

Breakfast Strata with Shallot and Spinach

Have you seen the movie The Family Stone? I love it. I file it under the category title “movies that make me sob uncontrollably but I watch every time they’re on TV”, right along with Stepmom and P.S. I Love You. I can’t hear the phrase “breakfast strata” without thinking of S.J.P and the...
