Recipe: Cinnamon Raisin Bread

This is a surprisingly easy recipe with perfect results. I’ve actually made this recipe a few times and incorrectly (!) once and it still came out just right. This bread is great on its own and not too sweet but it’s even better with some jam, butter, or even just a little cream cheese to…

Menu: A Long Fright

It’s hard to get back to routine after a week of strange and interesting meals but I suppose it’s worth the sacrifice. I’m hoping to get all my cooking done on Saturday and Sunday so that I can coast through the week but we’ll see how much of that actually pans out… Saturday couscous with…

Recipe: Pierogi

These delicious boiled then fried pillowy dumplings are delicious and pretty easy to eat. They’re especially good because they can be made in large batches ahead of time and frozen. I filled them with the usual onions and mashed potatoes but you can put anything in them, even sweet things.

Weekly Lunches: #26

I have friends coming to visit today which is pretty exciting but it also means that my husband took off work for the next week so I won’t be making any lunches for a week which is fine, everyone deserves a break now and then.

Recipe: Fleischnacka (Meat Snails)

This is a pretty unique recipe from the Alsatian region in France. It’s what you’d get if you combined stew, pasta, and a wrap all at once. While it does take a bit of time I found that you can freeze the rolls and then simply cook them right from the freezer which means this…

Weekly Lunches: #25

I kind of made do this week because I’d forgotten a few things from my shopping list since we shopped on Sunday instead of Saturday but it turned out alright in the end. I’m trying to be consistent in quality but stubbornness and ice got in my way.

Menu: Listing

Getting through my list of movies still but this week also trying to not be too wild about making new recipes while I catch up with all the ones I haven’t posted yet. Saturday leftovers homemade pizza Sunday eggs with toast sweet and sour chicken, rice Monday mushroom bourguignon, egg noodles, salad, fruit omelettes with…

Recipe: Chili Fries

Take french fries (or really, in this case roasted potatoes) to the next level by adding chili on top of it. This comes together surprisingly quickly and can be topped with anything from cheese to jalapenos and ranch if that’s what floats your boat.

Weekly Lunches: #24

I think I did a great job this week for the most part. Lots of fun and delicious new recipes which means next week will be more standard fare but you can’t be 110% all the time.

Menu: Movie Watcher

I’ve been crossing movies off my “to watch” list but unfortunately that means a lot of bad movie watching. The upside of that, of course, is eventually I’ll get to a place where I only have good movies left. Probably. Saturday fancy omelettes dinner at friends 🙂 Sunday eggs and toast fish and chips Monday…
