Individual Bread Puddings

Bread pudding is the perfect way to use up leftovers, whether it’s vegetables from last night’s dinner, bacon from yesterday’s breakfast (who has leftover bacon?!), or bits of cheese after that party. The important thing is to have some flavorings like onions, garlic, and herbs along with cheese and eggs to soak into day old … Continue reading »

Cheddar Oat Crackers

I’ve had some rolled oats in the cabinet for a while, and I decided to try this recipe to use them up. It’s a healthier version of my cheddar parmesan crackers, and the oats give them a heft that makes them a more filling snack so you will eat fewer and get full faster. Perfect … Continue reading »

Parsnip Gratin

Gratins make anything better. A nice cheesy, crunchy crust on top of any vegetable is an improvement. I also love that you can make gratins ahead of time and finish the cooking in the oven, so you can leave the kitchen and entertain guests. And of course this makes them perfect for the holidays, when … Continue reading »

Roasted Tomato Soup & Grilled Cheese

We survived the hurricane without any damage beyond getting a little stir-crazy, so I have to feel pretty grateful. We didn’t lose power or have any terrible flooding, but all we could do for days was watch the damage on TV. Of course, one of my first plans of action was to get to work … Continue reading »

Crepes Fines Sucrees

This is another recipe that I thought needed some new pictures. Crepes aren’t much more effort than pancakes, but I like them so much more. You can fill them with whatever you like; my favorite is nutella and strawberries. I thought we needed something special for breakfast over the weekend, and crepes immediately came to … Continue reading »

Sage Biscuits and Fried Egg Sandwiches

I’ve never been all that excited by biscuits. I think it’s because most of the time, they turn out dry and somewhat tasteless if you get them at diners or restaurants. And don’t even get me started on the fast food version. But, now that I know how good these are, I’ll be stocking my … Continue reading »

Slow Roasted Pork Shoulder and Pork Tacos

I’ve been thinking about slow roasting a pork shoulder for a while now. I’ve always thought it was some big endeavor with an expensive piece of meat, but it turns out I was totally wrong. The meat was very inexpensive and it couldn’t have been easier. A dry rub on the outside, and you put … Continue reading »

Comfort Food: Tuna Noodle Casserole

I always thought I didn’t like tuna noodle casserole until college. We had a wonderful southern cook for a few weeks who introduced me to this delicious variation on mac and cheese. I like to think the tuna gives it more nutritional value, but this dish is not about being healthy. I go to this … Continue reading »

Parmesan Cheddar Crackers

The menu for New Year’s Eve included these crackers along with some homemade chocolate covered strawberries and prosecco. I brought the second batch last night to a New Year’s Day Party as well, and they disappeared quickly. I think these are going to be a good substitute for the gougeres I usually make. Because they … Continue reading »

Leek and Mushroom Quiche

I always forget how much I actually like quiche until I have some leftover pie dough and make one. It’s a perfect lunch with some salad on the side and so easy to make. Plus, you can use up any leftovers in the fridge. Just substitute or add to the ingredients below, and you can … Continue reading »
