Really Good Burritos + Too Many Options

Most days, I have a very clear plan between baby naps and errands and stuff that has to be done by the end of that day no matter what.  Today is not like that. Today, I have a million projects that I could do, but there isn’t a single project that I really have to…

Asian Beef with Cabbage Slaw and Pretty Pretty Snow

Sometimes we take loads and loads of time to make our meals.  It’s nice to make the process part of the evening activities sometimes. Other times, I just want to eat something tasty in as little time as possible.  With the 2-minute Huevos Rancheros recently and the 2-minute pumpkin chocolate chip goodies (okay, so they…

Huevos Rancheros in Minutes!

In case that title is ambiguous, I’m talking Huevos Rancheros in 10 minutes.  The original recipe says 15 minutes, but honestly, there’s can opening and egg cooking.  It’s pretty much the easiest thing I’ve made in months, and it’s delicious to boot.

The other recipes used lots of heavy cream, which is of course delicious.  This recipe opts for…

Miscellaneous Thursday

That is a lot of manure!  That is an entire truck bed of manure, to be exact.  And in the background,…

Decadent Strawberry Sammiches

Here’s something that I’ve learned by watching lots of Food Network shows.  If a chef describes a food item as “decadent,” what they mean is that it’s a wonderful combination of unhealthy and delicious. I’ve never heard Giada say that her favorite spinach salad is decadent (unless maybe it has three types of meat and/or…

Hummus Wraps and Golf Caddies

First things first, we made The Pioneer Woman’s Heavenly Hummus Wraps last night for dinner, and they lived up to their name.  Mmm. Just so that you can immediately understand the deliciousness, here’s what you’re looking at on top of the wrap: caramelized red onion slices, hummus, roasted red peppers, artichoke hearts, mixed greens (with…
