Congee / Jook (Slow Cooker)

So on Monday I featured the Lechon Manok, or Filipino Roasted Chicken I made for my mom’s 50th birthday.  I actually roasted 4 chickens to feed everyone and make sure there was enough leftovers for lunches (plus it’s a fiesta – it’s required that you have a lot of food!)  On a random side note, learn from my lesson, when ...

Leftover Bolognese Hash

[divider_flat] So you’ve made the Lightened-Up Bolognese Sauce I posted (or somebody else’s, lol) and you’ve got a lot left.  Because really, if you’re going to go all out and make a sauce you’re not going to mess around with a measly two cups worth (yeah – cooking power!)

Here’s another non-recipe recipe that’s extremely quick and easy. I’ve heard that Elvis Presley loved peanut butter and banana sandwiches but I’ve never actually tried one myself.  I mean, I like the idea and it sounds tasty but for some reason I just never put the thought into action. Plus the idea of a sandwich fried in a ton of ... Read More »

Fridge Cleaning Frittata

So I got those beets in the CSA and apparently while beets themselves can last in cold storage for a while (who knew?), the greens need to be used quickly. I also had a bunch of random bits and pieces left in the fridge that needed to be used up before they went bad and not a lot of time ... Read More »
