Waffleizer: French Toast Waffles & Waffled Soft Pretzels

Every time I check out Waffleizer (the blog dedicated to answering the question of Will It Waffle?) I giggle a little bit. And that’s a good thing in this world of so many oh so serious food blogs. Go check it out. I couldn’t decide what to feature today, so I’m breaking my unwritten rule and fea

OK, St Pat’s is over, and it’s time to start thinking Easter!  This is SUCH a cute idea for Easter, from one of my favorite new food blog finds, Eye Candy Food Blog!  (thanks Niki for the pointer!) Are you looking for Easter dishes that are easy and fun to make? If yes, then these “newly hatch

Garlic pie

Garlic pie

Hi everybody!  We’re Chica and Jo and we’re here to tell you that we love garlic.  I mean we REALLY love garlic.  You have to love it to even consider something called Garlic Pie, right?  Yes, garlic is a great accompaniment to many meals, but sometimes it deserves to be the star of the dish, an

Corned Beef and Cabbage: Part 3 of 3(corned beef hash with basted eggs)

Who’s sick of hearing about corned beef and cabbage?  Well, I promise, this is the end of this fascinating series.  I just want to make sure you’ve got some options for all those yummy leftovers (4 lbs of beef is a lot, and unless you’re throwing a party, I’m sure you’ve got some extra). This i

Make Homemade Tomato Paste

Make Homemade Tomato Paste

Red Cordial Revolution has a very tasty looking how-to for making your own homemade tomato paste..  I love this idea… I’ve never tried to make my own before, but this sounds easy.  She also suggests adding additional flavorings like anchovies, eggplant, or olives! After making this oh-so-super-

Irish Soda Bread

Irish Soda Bread

I rarely seem to make the same recipe twice.  Boredom mostly. But with corned beef, comes cabbage.  And with corned beef & cabbage comes Irish soda bread. This recipe is not the true Irish soda bread I remember from my youth.  There is no buttermilk or seeds in this recipe, and it is de

Spotlight: Oven Fried Onion Rings

Spotlight: Oven Fried Onion Rings

I posted these a few weeks ago to our Facebook page and they were so popular I figured I’d share them here as a Spotlight! The Brown Eyed Baker shares her recipe for doing onion rings, without a big ol pan of hot oil. So clever! I adore onion rings. Love them, really. Although I hardly ever order

Chicken on a Budget: Multiple=

Chicken on a Budget: Multiple meal parts for $2.78!

In these times, we’re all trying to save money.  One thing I always do is look for what’s on sale, and how I can do multiple meals with it.  This technique also helps you keep a stocked freezer, that will help you out when you need a meal in a pinch! At the grocery store this week (a big shout
