Recipe for Egg Salad

Egg Salad Sandwich

Egg Salad Sandwich

I’d never eaten an egg salad sandwich until about a year ago. I know that sounds silly as they’re supposed to be something of a staple sandwich. Or perhaps just an alternative to PB&J? But when I came across this recipe, which was so simple, yet so flavorful, I had to try egg salad.

To my pleasure, this egg salad sandwich rocks. It’s so good, I’ll admit to eating the egg salad even without bread. (If you’re interested in making your own bread to go along, I highly recommend this white bread which I’ve made a dozen times.)

Recipe for Kale Chips

Kale Chips

I have a potato chip obsession, but slowly kale chips, which are far more healthy for you, have been replacing my salty, crunchy cravings. These are easy to make. They also cook super quickly.

I’ve used a variety of kale — green kale, red Russian kale, and Italian kale — and my favorite is red Russian kale as it’s a little sweeter.

Stuffed Fried Bread Dough

Stuffed Fried Bread Dough is delicious. It’s really up to you what you stuff it with. I’ve done it with mozzarella, a little basil, tomatoes, and spinach. Jason added some pepperoni to his own. I’m sure you could make some sweet ones too.

Recipe for Spinach-Ricotta Pie

Jan 29th, 2010 Posted in Main Dish | no comment »

As you might know, I love pie. Fruit pies. Meringue pies. Savory pies. Pies remind me of my grandma’s house. She’s a master pie-maker, and as you know, I use her pie crust recipe.

Cauliflower-Cheese Pie

Mar 16th, 2009 Posted in Main Dish | no comment »

Jason and I went on a little pie loving streak as we were watching Twin Peaks, and this Cauliflower-Cheese Pie was one of the many I made. This yummy pie isn’t the most healthy vegetable pie, but it is delicious and not too hard to make. Recipe is originally from the Moosewood Cookbook and calls for a grated potato crust, but I rebelled and just used my grandma’s flour pie crust.

Portobello Mushroom Burgers

Jan 25th, 2009 Posted in Main Dish | 4 comments »

On a whim, I bought portobello’s at the grocery store as a co-worker mentioned them at lunch. I’d never cooked them, and since I don’t have a grill or bbq, Jason got out his George Foreman grill. Which surprisingly worked very well.

It was a really yummy burger, and something that we’ll cook again. The original recipe is from AllRecipes.

These are delicious and really simple to make. Sweet and spicy. Plus, they give you something else to do with sweet potatoes during the holiday season. Original recipe here.

Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce and Fried Tofu with Honey BBQ Sauce

Dec 20th, 2008 Posted in Main Dish, Side Dish | 2 comments »

This was a meal that I sliced and diced together. Or maybe pasted in a better word: Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce recipe, Tex Asian BBQ Tofu recipe (my recipe so does not look like Chef Erik’s picture as I rather just used the frying instructions), and Honey BBQ Sauce recipe I’m not a big fan of bbq sauce and neither is Jason, so I had to resort to making my own. This is a true what’s in the fridge today meal.

French Fries

I bought a French Fry maker kit. (Yes, I make French Fries, not Freedom Fries.) It works to a varying degree, but I still got delicious fries out the gig. In fact, I should actually call this Cooking with Jason as I was cooking our actual dinner while he was frying fries. Delicious!

French Fries are delicious

Baked Macaroni and Cheese

No, this is not the kind that comes in a box. This is the homemade kind. I’m slowly convincing Jason to love it.
