BBQ London Broil in the Slow Cooker plus Tasty Tuedays Link Up

I managed to get a good deal on a London Broil (aka top round or flank steak), but didn’t want to go with my usual method of cooking it which is to marinade then cook on grill/broil until medium rare in the middle. This time I decided to cook it low and slow in the …

Foil Wrapped Salmon and Vegetables

Confession time: I am afraid to cook fish. If I mess up $3 a pound chicken I can somewhat come to grips with that. But, $19 a pound salmon fillet. No way! I would be devastated for days. While strolling through the store this week I spied a wild caught Keta salmon fillet for about $6 …

Cold Rice Salad

In 1999, my parents hosted a family reunion for the Lalanne and Vineys families. It was a bit bigger than our usual 4th of July party. And everyone had a blast getting to know each other. Some cousins hadn’t seen each other in decades, and to watch them scamper after each other you’d have thought they were …

Jambalaya Balls with Gumbo Gravy

We have a guest post today from Clark H. Smith, my uncle, because it is now summer vacation for us here in the Humaciu household and I am in lazy mode. And more importantly, Uncle Clark is a far better writer (and cook, truth be told) than I can hope to be. So without further …

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 …

Turkey Curry

My family would gather on Thanksgiving day at Aunt Jeanne and Uncle John’s house (for 60 years!). On Friday or Saturday afterwards my mom would make another turkey with cornbread stuffing and pear salad (canned pears with a dollop of mayonnaise in the hole topped with a maraschino cherry). This way we had leftovers too. …

Gid and Clark’s Righteous Rib Rub

I have been known on occasion to pester my brother to send me recipes for the site, like his Peppermint Bark Cheesecake. After I received an e-mail from my Uncle Clark recently, all I can say is “like daughter like mother”. Ma’am has been pestering her little brother to share some of his recipes with us. Technically, Clark used the …

Salmon Cakes

A few years ago, my brother and I were discussing Feta cheese. I don’t really remember how the subject came up, but he said “I use it in a cream sauce that goes great with Salmon Cakes.” My brain only registered the words, “Salmon Cakes“. I demanded politely asked if he would please be so kind …
