Bread Whore – Bread, Cakes, and Knuckle Sammiches

Arguably, not my finest hour. But in my defense – I didn’t throw the first punch, and any damage I caused was in the name of self-defense… even when Eileen W. menaced the crowd with her unsettlingly heavy carpet bag purse (I kinda think she liberated J&J’s of all their fruitcakes.) To be fair, quick […]

Chicken One Pot Meals Rice Simple Dinner Sunday

Simple Dinner Sunday ~ Chicken & Rice

Bonus at the market the other day…. tiny chickens. I’m not talking game hens (which can run upwards of $8), I’m talking itty bitty one pound fryers…. for a buck. I grabbed a handful (six) tossed them  in the cart, and sang a little song all the way to checkout. ♫ ♬ Tiny chickens … in the […]

Baleful Bounty ~ Melanzane al Funghetto

With the garden production winding down, there’s been very little in my little hay-bale heaven to harvest. Except for eggplants.

Russian Tea Cake

or ~ Spiced Orange Upside-Down Cake or ~ Slap me with that spice, Vladimir Russian Tea – just the name brings back overly sweet family get-togethers, the smell of libraries at holidays, and that particular teacher in the past that, come Fall, would drink nothing else….. she reeked of mothballs,  cloves… and Tang©. Granted, you […]

Braises Dinner Entree Lamb Main Course One Dish Dinners

Shank’d Again – Braised Lamb Shanks

I’d love everyone to think I buy from only the best local suppliers, the most humane breeders, the zero-hormone purveyors. But that’s just not the way life is for most people that budget for their groceries. Buying an $18 natural feed, pasture-raised roasting hen is out right stupid when you have anywhere from 8 to […]

Bread Whore ~ Everybody Tang – Zhong tonight!

Well, hello… So, it’s a new look. I’m all refreshed and re-energized.. and I’ve got some amazing, life-affirming crapola to sling your way… eventually… in a couple of days. But for now… It’s Bread Whore Time I wont lie, I’m a horrible baker. That doesn’t stop me from buying every freakin’ stinkin’ book that comes […]
