And in …

Smoked Salmon Spread or Dip

Smoked Salmon Spread is one of those recipes like Portuguese Beans that both Ma’am and I swore was on the site, but when she went to look for it we realized we had both somehow missed posting it. Maybe because we have both made it so many times we don’t even look at a recipe anymore. Or because it only has …

Weeknight Meals

A college buddy recently asked on Facebook if her friends cooked dinner every night. Her husband is working some crazy hours lately and she is pretty much a single working mom on most nights.  She likes to serve healthy homemade meals to her kids, but she is getting a bit burned out. More than likely she …

Tuna Melt

Daddy was working the other night, it was almost dinner time and I was desperately trying to finish the scrapbooks I mentioned in the last blog. Little Man was probably going to snub any attempt at leftovers. I did a quick mental inventory of the pantry, fridge and freezer. “Hey partner, would you like a …

Stars and Stripes Forever

The Fourth of July was always a big deal growing up, in part because my Dad loved America and in part because his birthday and my parents anniversary is on the 3rd. And since we had a backyard pool, the party was usually at our place with a BBQ followed by a parade with sparklers …

Someone’s in the Kitchen with Mommy – Part 3 (Cooking with Kids)

The wheel was invented over 5,500 years ago.  It has been working just fine since then. I see no reason to re-invent it.  Similarly, there are oodles of books and websites dedicated to the hows and whys of cooking with kids, so I don’t see a big need to rewrite all of that. You probably wouldn’t …

Just like Mama used to make.

How many of us have vivid memories of certain dishes our mothers (aunts, grandmothers, etc.) made while we were growing up?  And how many of us assume they will always be around and able to make those special dishes for us when we want them?  If that is the case, and you still have the …

Let the crab season begin.

Deadliest Catch crab season that is.  I became hooked on Discovery Channel’s Deadliest Catch a few years ago after seeing a promo for an episode in which a scruffy gravelly voiced crab fisherman is thrown from his bed in a storm and ends up with what he thinks is just broken ribs.  What can I …
