{Kitchen Confessions} Quick Chicken Enchiladas

I have a confession to make. Brace yourselves. Sometimes I cheat… …sometimes I cheat and I buy a pre-roasted chicken from the grocery store! Oh man, does it feel good to get that off my chest. Let’s get real.  I mean, I work all day.. I have a regular  J.O.B. and there are times it […]

{the new year} coping with mid-winter food blues

Maybe it’s being trapped inside at home with a new baby, but I’m prematurely feeling that mid-winter desperation about what to make for dinner every night.  This feeling worsens when we’ve skipped a week at the farmers market and have no fresh, local produce.  Local green vegetables are already becoming less prevalent and I can […]

{pizza week} Checking our Inventory

Pizza is one of my most favorite foods. It’s something that I enjoy in all its various transformations from Chicago deep dish, to New York hand tossed, to super duper thin crust. At home I often make thin crust but have sometimes made one with a slightly thicker crust that actually bakes up in my […]

{recipe} Green Enchiladas in the Frozen North

I have lived in upstate New York since 1986 and my steadfast complaint since that time has not been about the weather, although the weather does suck, but about the lack of decent tortillas.  While politicians bray about the influx of illegal Mexican immigrants into the country, I have been praying that they would come […]

{Enjoying} Swiss Chard: Quiche

I love quiches. They are my go-to dish and since I am a total cheater and use store-bought pie crusts, they are really easy to make. It doesn’t matter what kind of veggies you have on hand, you can somehow turn them into a quiche filling. Although now that I think about it, carrots might […]

{St. Patrick’s Day} green macaroni

We fall into the “mutt” category in our family…Irish is in there, but not enough to really call myself Irish. So, aside from throwing on a green shirt each year, I’ve never really given much thought to St. Patrick’s Day. Until my smarty-pants three-year-old asked me what we will do for St. Patty’s this year.
