Love the attitude at Yammie’s Noshery @yammiesnoshery Quote: Guys, you just have to trust your feelings sometimes. You know, like a jedi. So add as much celery as you want. Cook the chicken any way you desire. Forget the tomato cups and have it on a croissant. Or try using roma tomatoes and just halving them longways so they’re shaped like potato skins (tomato skins?). Go Get the Recipe! And she…

Sweet Tomato Basil Bisque

Sweet Tomato Basil Bisque

It’s the dead of winter, but I am craving tomatoes. I have a full-on tomato jones going. Best way to fix that is with this tomato soup, made more fanciful by calling it bisque. A bisque (say it bisk) is a rich, smooth, creamy soup often made with shellfish, and thickened with said shellfish including the pulverized shells. Well, this one is rich, creamy, and has a roux to thicken it, but is sans shellfish. From t…

this type of sambal is the most “helpful” dish for every housewife in Indonesia, because with only one sauce we can prepare a different kind of dish everyday!

Cajun Shrimp & Okra

Cajun Shrimp & Okra

I had the urge the other night to make some sort of dish with shrimp, to use up some shrimp broth in my freezer. I had a pound of shrimp, and also some frozen okra on hand, so I figured that was just screaming to go Cajun or Creole (Let the good times roll with Shrimp Creole!). So here’s my version of Cajun Shrimp and Okra. It’s pretty simple to make, the colors are beautiful, it’s healthy, and yo…

So, maybe this would be an opportunity to expand those cultural horizons? Sometimes you need to be daring. That’s when you throw on your best wild woman impression, perhaps enveloping yourself in a l…
