Yes you heard right and they are every bit as good, without the added deep fried fat. Or, like us who have family members that need to know every ingredient, we can’t always count on the good folks at the restaurant to be forthcoming (or accurate) with what is in the food. If we make […]

PC Gluten Free Fusilli Pasta was pretty good. Cool spirally noodles. Don’t overcook and don’t stir. Use package directions! Cook the noodles, drain in colander, pour back in pan, add already cooked, already hot sauce with all meat/veg in it (if spaghetti or the like) on top. FOLD sauce into noodles with large spatula (like […]
Yes you read right a 1 pot fun hearty soup dinner that’s ready in 15 minutes! Thanks again to my friend Julie for this one which she modified from her twin sister’s recipe. We had this at Julie & Ray’s house (Stephan, Ray was my friend first! LOL) one weekend where the hubbers & I […]
My mom makes this recipe for when she feels like something different than the usual fare. It’s also for those days you don’t want to put the oven on, or need dinner-in-a-hurry. It’s a versatile recipe too, for crab cakes, just substitute faux crab which can be just as delicious nowadays as real crab, and […]

Corn Pasta is an excellent direct pasta substitute that can be used for any recipe that calls for spaghetti, elbow noodles, penne, spiral etc – and the least detectable taste change.

I forgot how good and light this easy curried rice recipe was. I didn’t have my recipe on hand, so I called my mom – who had had some pulled beef already cooked and cooled … This is great to use leftover chicken or beef in (even canned white chicken in a pinch -drained)- be sure to marinate the meat in the dressing until needed … great hot or cold (perfect for buffets or picnics – we prefer hot) see below…

My mom is the perfecter of roast beef.
She can take any old tough, gnarly thing that looks like its rolled around on the grocery store floor (okay, not really, but you know what I mean) and make it the most tender, juicy piece of roast beef heaven you’ve ever tasted.
So, naturally, I had to learn her seemingly supernatural prowess.
Some people talk to their plants. My spouse says I talk to the food, while preparing it. Some people think talking to your plants make them healthier and happier plants.
