Burger Buns

Burger Buns from PasstheSushi.com

Some of the best recipes come from crinkled pages stained with ware and yellowed with age. This is one of them. Handsome’s mother gave me an older copy of Fleischmann’s Yeast book when she and I were talking about must try yeast recipes. We talked about how dough has a feel and you can figure out when things are going to go well or bad from the very beginning. I admit to needing to practice my dough making skills. A lot.

Pesto Artichoke Lasagna Rolls

This time of year I am more than guilty of binging on heavy meals – I mean those carb laden heavy meals that sit in your tummy until lunch the next day. Those guilty kinds of means. The heavy ones that are oh so worth it. (The sweat your tush off at the gym the next day meals) And lasagna has to be one of my favorites. I had to travel a few weekends ago and wanted to leave something hearty and delicious behind for my man and these little lasagna rolls were born. I baked them in personal gratin […]

Then as we turned onto our street more garrish dresses and young women trying to walk through yards without sinking their heals in appeared. That reminded me that while beboping around earlier that day a man on the radio said the average cost of prom was […]

Have I mentioned I welcome crazy into my life? I could go into a list of reasons why this is oh so very true, but instead I’ll just tell you what’s happening this week at the ranch. I’m dog sitting. That’s right, I decided Handsome’s 70 pound attention hogging mutt and my two cats weren’t enough and volunteered us to watch a very energetic rottweiler. Golda is a very excited 2 year old 90 pound gorgeous pup and she’s going to destroy my house (not at all on purpose, just based on the laws of physics – and object in […]

So, I’m a little late to the game, but I hear its Thanksgiving this week and as a food blogger I may want to try sneaking some holiday themed recipes in here. The problem with that is, I don’t have to cook a thing for Thanksgiving, ever (which, kinda makes me sad but oh well). Actually, I get the whole week off from cooking with all the leftovers we’ll get and such. Go me! However, there are a few recipes I would love to ad to the Thanksgiving table that I am going to be trying this week. So, lets […]
