Food Friday: Happy Hannukah Day 2

Published by under Cooking,Food

Of course for this edition of Food Friday I was going to do latkes. What else on Hannukah? I used the recipe from my Jewish cookbook. This is the cookbook my mom has as well. It’s out of print now but she saw a copy at a garage sale and snatched it up for me. […]

Food Friday: Canning Raspberry Jam

Published by under Cooking,Recipes

Ing Mom came into town the other day. I had been begging her for Aunt Shirl’s Jam recipe because it’s the best. So even better than just e-mail it to me, we made it together. Two batches actually, but I only took photos during the first. Aunt Shirl’s Raspberry Jam Ingredients 8 cups of raspberries […]

Food Friday: White eggplant

Published by under Cooking,Food,Garden

I’ve decided to start a new item called “Food Friday.” I enjoy posting about food related items because I find they are often somewhat crafty in sort of creating an edible craft. But I’d really like this blog more to be about sewing and crafts. So I’ll stick to doing food items only on Fridays […]

Shrimp dumplings

Published by under Cooking,Food

One more quick post for tonight. I made shrimp stir fry (ingredients are below although I don’t have a picture of the finished item) and shrimp dumplings, both from Cooks Illustrated recipes. The dumplings are above. I think they look great. They were a bit salty (I’d leave out the salt next time) and crunchy […]

Chili

I recently found out the beauty of making food and then freezing it. One of my favorites to do this with is chili. I found this recipe called It’s Chili by George!! on All Recipes and modified it to my liking.

Hollah if you love challah

Published by under Cooking,Food,Recipes

Every Friday night I try to make challah for me and hubby. Some weeks are just too busy, but I do make an effort. I make a whole loaf (about 1.5 lbs), but it usually only lasts us the weekend since hubby loves it and we use extra to make french toast. The recipe I […]

Angel Food Cake . . . Cupcakes

Published by under Cooking,Food,Recipes

Some friends were coming over for BBQ and I wanted to have strawberry shortcake. But I wanted individual ones so I figured I would use my minibunt pan to make little angel food cakes. I put all the extra into cupcake containers. Turns out the cupcakes worked much better since it was insanely hard to […]

Recipes Page

Published by under Cooking,Recipes

I’ve added a new recipes page to consolidate all my recipes. Often I have one I’d like and, yes, of course I could use the search function on the left side, but it’d be so much easier to see all my recipes in one place. Perhaps now that they are easier to find this way, […]
