Cheddar Apple Scones for Breakfast


First off, I love cheese so I knew I would love these scones (and I did). Dorie Greenspan knows how to bake, that’s for sure.

But, I kind of messed up and had less cheddar than I thought I did. A travesty! I rummaged around the fridge and came up with some Robusto cheese (kind of a cross between gouda and parmesan). I used about half cheddar and half robusto.

Paprika Roast Chicken with Sweet Onions


I look for any excuse to use my smoked paprika. I love smoked paprika. Get yourself some and you will never be sorry. Here’s a good resource for your smoked paprika needs.

We had this chicken with a bunch of pan roasted asparagus (olive oil + heat + salt + pepper = tasty) on the side and also some orzo that I cooked in spinach-y chicken broth (add broth and handfuls of spinach to a food processor, and *whir* *whir* to combine.

Oh Yeah, It's Peanut Butter Cups


If I am going to eat something bad, it’s most likely going to be a (some) (all the) peanut butter cup(s). And most likely the white chocolate ones. A couple of years ago I bought bags of those for Halloween candy to hand out and, uh, well, jwa and I ate most of them. I have not made that mistake again (note to self: buy candy you don’t like!)

Anyway, I don’t know why, but I love the white chocolate ones better than the regular chocolate ones. And normally, dark chocolate is my favorite. Weird. . . . → Read More: Oh Yeah, It's Peanut Butter Cups

Facebook is Fun and Stuff


Become a fan of Stash Tea on facebook.

Yeah, that’s pretty much it. I made peanut butter cups a couple of day ago..I’ll try to post that tomorrow night. Also, seafood chili. Even jwa liked it! That’ll be (hopefully) this week too. If you become a fan of Stash Tea. ::evil laugh::
