Cheddar Pepper Muffins

August 30, 2011

0

These are savory muffins which is such a nice change from the typical sweet muffin.  I think they are lovely with soup.  The muffin top is especially delicious with all the browned cheese.  My kids all love this muffin.  Some kids are bothered by pepper; if so, you could reduce the pepper in the recipe. […]

Green Bean & Potato Curry

August 29, 2011

0

This is a great summer recipe.  It call all be cooked on the stove, and it uses fresh garden produce.  You can pair it with a meat curry or tandoori meats.   I love the textures in this dish: the creamy potatoes, tender beans, and crunch of all the seeds is a treat for the […]

I have been experimenting with Cornbread for many years and I think I have finally come up with a recipe I really like.  I have tested it on family and friends and all agree it is yummy!  It is a little sweeter and denser than what I grew up on (I had Southern Style cornbread […]

Fluffy Dinner Rolls

I got this delicious roll recipe from my good friend Jennifer O’Haley.  I used to make them all the time when I lived at a slightly lower altitude, but since I moved to over 4,000 feet they have been a little more touchy.  I think I have finally figured out that I have to add […]

We don’t have something we “always have” for Christmas dinner, but is seems to very often be a ham dinner.  We have some rules about Christmas day, however.  WE MUST STAY IN JAMMIES ALL DAY.   So, Merushka sets a beautiful table, we make a nice dinner with as many things cooked in advance as possible, […]

Broccoli Blue Cheese Bake

August 14, 2011

1

This was the favorite new recipe of Christmas Dinner. It is creamy, flavorful, and just a tiny bit tangy.  I works equally well with cauliflower, or a mixture of both cauliflower and broccoli.  This will be appearing regularly on our table, but I will probably reduce the fat for more frequent consumption.  But for special […]

Broccoli Salad

We eat differently in the summer than we do in the winter.  In winter, it is all about soups, stews, the crock pot, and breads.  But in summer, we tend to grill a lot and eat things that can easily be eaten on our back porch.  We eat out of the garden, and throw things […]
