I love fall. Well, mostly. The weird temperature changes I can do without. But the changing leaves, fall fruits and vegetables? Those I adore. The Man was supposed to take me out (for the first time in a year) for dinner tonight at a place in Naperville that can supposedly prepare a GF meal. Last… Read More Delicious days of almost-fall
I watch a lot of Food Network. I mean, A LOT. We’re talking that’s what is on the tube whenever I am in front of it. Except when I am trying to go to sleep, in which case I find something on the History Channel, because I will pay attention to the Food Network and… Read More It’s all Ina’s fault
I made the aborted Father’s Day dinner last night for The Man, his friend, and his friend’s son. Both recipes, found on the Food Network’s website, received a huge thumbs-up from each of them. The burgers I made are Tyler Florence’s Stuffed Bacon Cheeseburgers. I exchanged the monterey jack with co-jack cheese (my great grandma… Read More Two keepers
…you eat something that rocks. I made a roast chicken, some smashed red potatoes, and wanted a veggie for dinner.

About 4:45 this afternoon, The Man sent me an IM: “Dinner honey?” I rarely have days when I wish I was married to someone who has a clue in the kitchen, because I love to cook so much. Today, though, was one of those days. Sometimes I just want to come home and relax while… Read More Thursday night

Scalloped Corn 2 cans corn 1 can GF mushroom soup 2 tbsp butter 1/4 cup cornstarch 1 egg Drain the… Read More Scalloped Corn
A family recipe again, tweaked. I try to sneak the healthier stuff past The Man whenever I can. I bet he won’t even know until he reads this post. GF dressing1 pound ground turkey breast (original calls for hamburger; I used to use a mix of hamburger and pork sausage)1 cup onion, roughly chopped1 cup… Read More Mmmm….mmmmm…..dressing!
