Chipotle Tomato Mac and Cheese + Chinet Bakeware Review

Not that we’re anywhere near a big holiday dinner, but I know for me I always have an issue with not having enough dishes for everything I’m planning to make.  Enter Chinet: Quick disclaimer – I did not receive compensation for this review, although Chinet gave me free products to test out.  But all of the opinions, photos and the recipe expressed ...

Pea and Mushroom Brown Rice Risotto

Who doesn’t like risotto?  And if you plan to pipe up and tell me that you don’t picture me putting my hands over my ears and singing “la la la la la”.

Twenty…more…weeks… *sigh* But my birthday is Monday (yay!) and my ... Read More »

I hate touching them.  They’ve got a weird texture and those giant Portobello mushrooms caps also have those really dark brown gills that you scrape out (a task I usually delegate to my husband). Then you get to those really crazy looking ones too – like cloud ear, oyster, morels ... Read More »

Lola’s Noodles

I’m going to call this dish Lola’s Noodles. Now my Lola (grandmother) never made me anything like this – that I remember anyway – and it’s probably a good thing since I would have continuously bugged her to make it over and over again. There’s just something about this dish that just yells grandma comfort food for me, I mean ... Read More »
