A Taste of Today

Food, to enjoy!

The photo that Food Network had online didn’t do even the tiniest bit of justice to this dish — so I decided to not include it.. I’m down with a migraine, so I won’t be cooking this today…but.. I can guarantee you it will be on the menu when I start cooking again in a […]

The Summer of the Food Movie

Ratatouille and No Reservations (the latter of which is having a sneak-preview this evening in US theatres). Has anyone seen either? If so, your take?

Dinner, Shenandoah Forester Style

Thanks to Coffeemate who gave me the low-fat breaded chicken recipe… (look through the comments from a couple days back); I used refrigerated angel hair pasta, tossed with petite diced tomatoes with oregano and garlic. Glazed carrots finish the dish. (Yeah, yeah. I know. I need to learn the finer art of plating so that […]

A statement, and a start.

I. AM. SICK. OF. FOOD. NETWORK. Mind you, I still love the channel. But…WHY THE HELL are they running “The Next Food Network Star” marathon over and over and over and over and over (and OVER)? I. AM. OVAH. IT. We know it’s down to Amy and Rory. That’s fine. I don’t need to keep […]

A Taste of Today™

First off, Thank You Coffeemate. You were the only one who sent me a photo like I asked. I, too, <3 Prosciutto and Brie, but at the prices of 22.99 and 11.99 a pound, I shall NEVAH complain about prices at Trader Joe’s, or the Fresh Market again. Next, allow me to give you the […]

A Taste of Today™

Pano A La Nunzia This appetizer comes from the family of one of the failed relationships I mentioned last night. It’s a stuffed bread that I used to have at my Holiday Parties. It can be made meatless by substituting 2 packages of chopped, frozen spinach that has been thawed and squeezed dry. 1 1/2 […]

Yeah, I’m gonna pick on someone.

Chef Jules, over at Gourmet-A-Go-Go, simply MUST stop with the delicious recipes. I was dining with a few friends from church a short while back at my (former) favourite not fast but not quite slow food restaurant, Romano’s Macaroni Grille, who used to make my all time decadent indulgence — Veal Saltimbocca. Jules has a […]

A Taste of Today

I’m no chef — even though I LOVE to eat, and I love to cook. It’s not easy, especially with trying to stay healthy and stay on my weight loss routine. My greatest fear is ending up like the Queen Latifah character in “Last Holiday” — where she would make photo worthy dishes and items […]

A Taste of Today™

Chicken Breasts Stuffed With Perfection Not light fare by any imagination, though you could save calories (and fat) by changing to fat-free salad dressing for the marinade; using “lite” sour cream; change from feta to ricotta salata; use low-fat parmasean; and use regular sundried tomatoes rehydrated in water instead of packed in oil. Granted, the […]

Carnival time!

Well, I’ve done many things in my four years of blogging, from blogathons, to visual parody, but I’ve never EVER participated in a “Carnival” before. Before now, that is. Welcome to the Carnival of the Recipes, hosted by Silver Blue! Since this is my first time, I’m not going to separate them out by category […]

TWTTEOSB 04-07-07

Wow, I lost a year as I was typing this post. No, it’s not 2006. It’s 2007. Mom and Dad landed with very little snow remaining, but with lots of stories of Hawaii, and I look forward to seeing the videos and photos. Unfortuately, Dad came down with a stomach problem yesterday, so I think […]

You’re so tired, you now answer the phone with “Go to Hell.” 9. Your friends call to ask how you’ve been, and you immediately scream, “Stop asking me […]

Since I have a spare minute or two…

Salads from Quiznos aren’t too bad, but they’re not too good either. The Honey Mustard Chicken salad at least had the dressing on the side, but with out bacon and cheese, all you end up getting is chicken and shredded lettuce. That does not a salad make. If I order it again, you can bet […]
