The Sandwich Diaries ~ the Meatloaf Sandwich

There’s one important thing to have when making a great meatloaf sandwich Good meatloaf…. and white bread Okay, two things meatloaf, white bread… and mayo bollocks! … three things and pickle chips Dammit!

Tales of Woe: the one with The Cake

Several months ago, I came across this peach cake recipe from the Barefoot Contessa… And, while I’m not a huge fan of fresh fruit in cakes, this one sounded interesting… so I gave it a go. I was right, while the idea was good, the fresh peaches congealed in the bottom of the cake pan […]

Snacktime! ~ Honeycomb Popped Corn

I like me some Caramel Corn. However, the thought of popping corn, cooking a syrup, mixing it up, then baking it for 45 minutes to an hour JUST to get it where you can eat it… is  WAY more effort than I want to put in a snack. Over a year ago while Jane and […]

Six, the Easy Way ~ Vegetable Tamales

Mexican Restaurants – Whether it’s the strength of the margaritas, the freshness of their chips, the scoville scale of their salsa, or just how “authentic” it all is; everyone has their own way of judging a good one. Me? I look at two things. 1). Chili Rellenos : Is it a charred poblano pepper? Does it have a […]

The Sandwich Diaries – You Can’t Tuna Piano…

… but you can Tuna Fish. Since I’ve been looking back at some of my favorites in the meat-n-slab-o-bread world, I’d be remiss if I didn’t talk about the Tuna Melt… What? Of course you can combine fish and cheese. Besides, no one really considers canned tuna a fish, anyway. I used to have a […]

OLÉ! – kinda…

Ideally, there should be a bit of a travel story depicting my drunken body staggering into some dirty backwater, iguana-crawling, cha-cha playing, peeling concrete floored cantina somewhere down in the backwoods of the Yucatan Peninsula where I first had Chilaquiles. But that would be a fib. The drunkenness, staggering and crawling are probably correct – but I […]
