Amazingly Flavorful Low Fat Meatballs

If I were considerably younger I might consider calling these “Amaze-balls”, but I am far too old to be able to say that and not sound foolish. But, these meatballs are amazingly moist and flavorful and adaptable to a variety of cuisines. And they happen to be lower in fat. The recipe is based on …

Mezetti – Beef and Noodle Skillet Meal

Here’s a great one skillet meal that’s been in the family for years. Hearty, beefy stick to your ribs meal that cooks up in about 45 minutes, most of it hands off time, making it perfect for a weeknight. I have no idea where the name Mezetti came from, I assume it’s the name of the person that …

The Autumnal Equinox is here! I am ready for cooler weather and hearty slow cooked foods. What I am not ready for is Pumpkin Everything!!! Ugh, it has been everywhere for the last month: on my newsfeed, on my blog hops, in the grocery store. Enough already. There are so many other delicious squashes out …

Applewood Smoke Meatloaf – Gourmet Warehouse

A few weeks ago the folks at Gourmet Warehouse contacted me to ask if I would be interested in trying a few of their products. I got a free spice rub and marinade, they get a few recipes, we both get free advertising from each other. Works for me! And if you are wondering “would she …

The almost 900 page, Cook’s Illustrated Cookbook with 2,000 recipes! At first glance I had about 20 recipes I thought about making, then M suggested we have meatloaf on Tuesday night, …

This is the year I am determined to use all three parts of my grape plant: the fruit for jelly and raisins (I do this every year) the vines for decorations the leaves for Stuffed Grape Leaves. Yes, if you or your friends/family grow grapes you can use those leaves to make this instead of buying …

Enchiladas, Margaritas and Micheladas

I feel the same about Cinco de Mayo as I do about St Patrick’s Day. Both have become perverted by the alcohol industry in America (particularly the beer industry). What started as a celebration of ethnic pride has in many cases just turned into an excuse to go out and drink heavily. Ugh! So, am I selling out …
