Cosmic Cocktails | Cancer | The Sensitive Soul

When researching this week’s sign and cocktail the immediate thought I got, reading about the Crab’s nurturing and protective nature, was of a lioness protecting her cub, or an angry momma-bear. Maybe it should have been a little more Finding Nemo and less Jungle Book (we are dealing with a water sign, after all), but the comparison […]

Sweet Potato Spoon Bread Recipe

I love to try new recipes on family and friends and this one is a WINNER.  It came from this year’s December Better Homes and Gardens magazine, but I modified it slightly and used curry instead of thyme.  It is not what you think!  It is savory, not sweet.  Light and fluffy.  It is a […]

Fourth of July Jello Shots

Jello shots are a very festive way to celebrate the holiday. They are easy to make and fun for parties. For Fourth of July, follow the recipe below but only use Red and Blue jello for holiday colors. Top with whipped cream for a holiday feel! Make sure you chill for 4-5 hours so they […]

The Best French Dips!

Last night my friends and I got together to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. We were not in the mood to go out to eat, but wanted to make something great at home. After deciding for a couple minutes, my boyfriend suggested making French Dips. I have never been a big fan of this sandwich, but […]

The Lost Art of… Marmalades?

On our second trip to the farmers’ market (Todd came with, this time), I spotted kumquats and thought making marmalade would be a good way to use the fruit and have it available for more than just one meal. Now, I’d made marmalade in the past, but it had been maybe 10 years since, so […]

Buffalo Chicken Dip

This recipe is like nothing I have had. My friend made it at her ugly sweater party and it is wonderful! It is also pretty simple to make and makes a large amount of dip! To start: you need the following ingredients 3 large chicken breasts 1 cup chopped celery 1 cup bleu cheese dressing […]

Peanut Flour Power

Restaurants have been using peanut flour for years. High in protein, this gluten free flour is used in soups, breads, cookies, sauces, breading and batters. Now home cooks can find this versatile ingredient at Trader Joe’s nationwide and at Harvey’s Supermarkets in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina thanks to the folks at The National Peanut […]

Caramelized Red Onion Pizza Recipe

Looking for a vegetarian main course? Try this Caramelized Red Onion Pizza.  I made it last night for dinner and the leftovers at lunch today were just as good.   It is moist and full-flavored without any high-calorie layer of cheese – just a hint of feta on top of a mound of sweet, caramelized red […]

Meatballs from America’s Test Kitchen TV Show

Image via Wikipedia I don’t watch a lot of TV.  But I’ve started using my DVR to record cooking shows that usually air at times that I prefer to do non-TV things.  America’s Test Kitchen TV show, and their second “Cook’s Country TV show”, are two that I especially enjoy.  Why?   They satisfy all sides […]

100 Healthy Recipes for Lazy People

Image via Wikipedia I was asked to link to 100 Healthy Recipes for Lazy People. Thanks for the heads up. Who could not resist? And the hotter it gets, the lazier I get. This list is a real keeper. Who has ever heard of chocolate bruschetta? Spicy lemon trout, poached ginger chicken, and BBQ tofu […]
