If you are like me (and you know you are!) You are always coming up with recipes that leave you with something you don’t know what to do with! Eggs are one of those things…..I make Hollandaise in the microwave from a recipe I have been using since teaching microwave classes in the 70’s and … More Two Eggs…….Now what? Nuts for Hollandaise!
ANOTHER GREAT ONE FROM DANNIE!! I have to say I never even heard of this dish! Be honest, did you? But here it is. And here we were on Bachelor Night, eating another fabulous Mystery dessert from Southern Belle, Dannie. (Dannie, please move to Arizona……we could eat your food all day!) SODA CRACKER PIE 3 … More SODA CRACKER PIE WHAAAAAT?????
I’m almost embarrassed to tell you that I was in my 30s before I ever made my own pickles. How can any self-respecting amateur chef admit to that kind of neglect??? It all started when I got a jar of pickles from a friend for Christmas, way back in the 70’s. When she told me … More PICKLING…..it’s not just for pickles anymore
Recently on Instagram I posted on making soup out of almost anything. On March 17, (St. Patrick’s Day), I made our usual dinner of corned beef and cabbage. I have learned that corned beef is one of the most stubborn meats God ever made, so you have to cook it for hours to get it … More Make soup! Have fun with “leftovers”
Angela surprised us at Bachelorette last night with these cookies. I’ll be honest. While I love pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving, I am not necessarily crazy about a lot of other pumpkin products…..that is, until I took a bite of one of these! They are dee-lish! And they are a little “cakier” and softer than I … More PUMPKIN COOKIES… tis the season!
I recently went to a new little interesting looking place called, “The Italian Lady”. It’s in Pinetop, Az., and is literally a shack with 3 ladies crowded inside, small kitchen, serving fabulous Italian food. We had two of the wonderful sandwiches, and I saw the soups at the bottom of the menu. We didn’t have … More SAUSAGE POTATO SOUP….with homemade sausage!
I sure raised some good cooks! The other night my youngest son, Adam, had us over and made a new appetizer…..OBOY! it was good. Basically it’s the ingredients that are in a caprese salad: mozzarella, tomatoes, and proscuitto. ADAM’S CAPRESE APPETIZER (Mozzarella Caprese di Adamoli) Sliced mozarella Proscuitto cherry tomatoes Olive oil and vinegar (or … More CAPRESE APPETIZER Thanks, Adam
If you saw my Instagram (askmehowiknowcb) I’ll remind you that I do 60 second videos and I did one today about this recipe. The Chicken, the veggies and the method are pretty standard. (Super hot skillet, preferably cast iron but not mandatory, peppers, onions, oil, garlic, and your choice of beef, chicken, fish or shrimp.) … More FAJITA NIGHT……Just Safeway and Me!
I have a feeling this post will be almost as popular as my post last year on Chicken Liver Pate. In other words, NOT. However, in Arizona we have so much citrus that we are always looking for ways to use it. I always freeze the juice in ice cube trays, and then keep the … More PRESERVED LEMONS…..Why????? And what do I do with them?
We love ham at Christmas and Easter especially. But I always like to make some kind of topping and sauce for it, and especially if you serve rice or potatoes on the side you can drizzle the delicious juice over it. Here are two yummy choices, both easy and SO tasty! Bake the ham … More EASTER HAM? Make a topping. And use some jam!
