The Ultimate Meat Wad: Meatballs al Forno, Fries & Shakes with ATHF

title

Meatballs, fries and shakes are not really a sensible dinner — I think that is the point. What else would you eat while watching the Aqua Teen Hunger Force movie? Exactly. When we netflixed this a couple of weeks ago this is what we dined on. I think I was still inspired by the Weekend Cookbook Challenge a couple of months back.

I made turkey meatballs instead of the sirloin/pork mix below and also substituted a few other things. I’ve listed my subs below in parenthesis. As far as the movie was concerned, we both . . . → Read More: The Ultimate Meat Wad: Meatballs al Forno, Fries & Shakes with ATHF

Product Review: Matisse & Jacks Bake at Home Energy Bars

Matisse & Jacks Bake at Home Energy bars

A cool thing about having a food blog is that every so often people offer to send me stuff to try and write about. This is what happened here — energy bars. Or, in my case, breakfast bars and healthy cookies.

Matisse and Jacks Bake at Home Energy Bars are mixes that you mix together with yogurt and apple sauce (there are other suggested add-ins and recipes on the box). After agreeing to try the Trailblaze Baking Mixes, I was very promptly sent two boxes — the Cranberry . . . → Read More: Product Review: Matisse & Jacks Bake at Home Energy Bars

Baked Tuna & White Beans: Another Good Fish Dish of Modest Means

title

First off, goodbye Summer theme…hello again Autumn theme! I’ve missed you!

Now, this recipe is from my friend Vanessa. We met at DePaul freshman year of college and then both transferred to other places. We managed to stay in touch for a few years after school, then kind of went on with our lives for a few years after that and just recently got back in touch. Hooray!

She even gave me this awesome recipe for tuna and white beans as a great week night, comforting, quick dinner. It really is…and it fits right in with . . . → Read More: Baked Tuna & White Beans: Another Good Fish Dish of Modest Means

SHF35: Figs Ahoy!

title

Sugar High Friday, hosted by Cream Puffs in Venice is all about figs this month. Awesome. I really like figs. For this SHF I turned towards perhaps the perfect cookbook for this event — The Girl and the Fig cookbook, one that I really like. In fact, I’m trying to finagle my way into lunch or dinner there next time we’re near Sonoma. But, back to SHF, I’m going to guess I’m not the only one who makes something out of this book given the theme. We’ll see…

Anyway, this was wonderful! A lot of steps, . . . → Read More: SHF35: Figs Ahoy!

October's Weekend Cookbook Challenge

title

I am very pleased to announce, thanks to Sara, that I am guest hosting October’s Weekend Cookbook Challenge! Hooray! And the theme is…Halloween.

Boo!

Now, you might be thinking, hmmmm, Halloween…what can I make for that? Well, my answer is, pretty much anything — pumpkins, root vegetables, snacks for trick-or-treaters, dishes for Halloween parties, perhaps even a super-scary Sandra Lee recipe — ha! Really, anything that can be remotely tied into Halloween will work..I’m not picky.

Of course, since this is a cookbook challenge, you should try to get your recipe from a cookbook, but . . . → Read More: October's Weekend Cookbook Challenge
