Oh Hai! I started this post back in August.. so … yeah.. LB and I recently read a review of the Farm to Table Bistro in the New York Times. Since we had a plan to visit Bannerman’s Castle which is pretty close, we decided to check it out. First, in case you go, it’s in a strip mall. That… Read more →
So I’m a bit behind (as per usual) on all kinds of things.. but mostly on my postings about the From Scratch Club book club. This time around we are cooking our way through Put ‘em Up! Fruitby Sherri Vinton. I already had Put ‘em Up! and I enjoyed a lot of the recipes but what is nifty about this… Read more →
I work in an office.. and I’m an emotional eater.. which means when things get stressful (like every damn day) I reach for something.. anything to shove in my facehole. This has lead to a lot of unfortunate snacking incidents… and a bit of weight gain (ok..a lot of weight gain.. shaddup… it’s been a rough year) I try to… Read more →
I’ve said it before… True Brews is a totally fun book. I’m looking forward to exploring more recipes, like the hard lemonade and the hard cider… maybe even some of the beers but for right now, I’m obsessed with soda. Last weekend, I got a pound and a half of rhubarb in my CSA and immediately thought SODA! Rhubarb is… Read more →
Soda. The current scapegoat in the “war on obesity”. I like soda… I like soda a lot. But I gave it up a while ago.. newsflash! Still fat. Take that you people who say “just cut out soda and you’ll lose 10 pounds!”. I used to drink so much Mountain Dew that my “going away gift” when I left a… Read more →
We called my maternal grandfather “Poppa”. I don’t remember why.. I think because someone couldn’t say “Grampa” and I’m going to guess that someone was me. I have a lot of memories of Poppa but the two that stick out the most are the time he taught me to “just cut that mold off the cheese.. it’s fine” and watching… Read more →
Which is my all time favorite sandwich. Which is also no on the eating plan especially since I had bread AND macaroni yesterday.
It was hard to say no to that you guys.
But now I want a Rueben.
So I’m gonna make myself work for it.
I have sauerkraut going right now and it’s fermenting up a storm.
I have a brisket in the freezer that I can “corn” to make corned beef.
I have an awesome sourdough Jewish Onion Rye recipe. I’ll start the sour on the same day I put the brisket in the brine.
I’ll have to find a recipe for home made Russian Dressing and I’ll have to buy the Swiss.. oh well.
I’m going to make a Rueben as much as from scratch as possible.. cool, yes? ∞
I am a sucker for jerky. It used to be that I was the only one who understood the allure of jerky but evidently that’s changed. I’m seeing so much love for jerky lately that it just warms my heart. Jerky is the perfect food, in my book. It’s portable, it’s shelf stable, it’s loaded full of protein. Awesome for… Read more →
