Peanut Butter Waffles with Banana and Nutella

I've been torn over the years by waffle makers - growing up, my Mom made awesome waffles, and the maker she had was not a deep, Belgian waffle maker or one of the thin waffle makers you typically find, but one sort of in between, and it accommodated four squares. I have never found one with that particular depth (I always check yard sales hoping to find a vintage version), so I finally broke down and bought a two-square standard version. I had a...

Cranberry-Orange Oatmeal Cookies

In a long, convoluted series of events, I somehow recently ended up with a food storage container belonging to my sister's best friend. Always looking for an excuse to cook or bake something new, I decided to follow that old adage of never returning a container empty - despite the fact that it wasn't me who had emptied it. During her last visit here, my sister had left me with a container of quick-cooking steel cut oats. Although I always make...

Curried Granola-Crusted Shrimp with Grilled Pineapple

I was very excited when Golden Girl Granola reached out to see if I would be interested in participating in their annual recipe challenge again this year. The first year was Entrees, last  year Desserts (I placed 2nd - yay me), and this year Appetizers. The first thing that came to mind was using the granola in some sort of Stuffed Mushrooms. The problem with that... I loathe mushrooms, so I wouldn't even begin to know how my own recipe...

Pistachio-Mahlab Scones with Pistachio Creme

I baked a few batches of Choreg a while back and had some leftover mahlab that I wanted to use up while it was still good. If you're not familiar with mahlab, it's actually the inside of a pit from the St. Lucie Cherry. It has a warm, almost nutty flavor, said to resemble a combination of almond and cherry, like marzipan, although that's not what my taste buds bring to mind. I can't really describe it, but if you were ever around a kitchen with...

Sun Dried Tomato-Basil Hummus

OK, I think this might be my new favorite Hummus! Although I must admit that when I picked up the package of sun dried tomatoes, I had a pasta dish in mind, so you might prefer to work with the jarred option so you don't have to re-hydrate them. I purchased the dry because I knew I wouldn't be using them all right away. Totally up to you.The other thing to consider is the use of basil. My first thought was to make a sun dried tomato hummus. Then...

Buffalo Chicken Burgers

I was recently having a craving for something Buffalo, so I decided to make burgers for a change. Don't be alarmed by how soft the mixture is, it's all good! A little mayo helps make sure the chicken doesn't dry out while grilling, and it works as a binder along with the fresh bread crumbs. When it comes to the crumbs, I always keep a stash in the freezer for just such an occasion. Whenever I have odds and ends of any type of bread, I pulse it...

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Butterfinger Cookies

I recently encountered Butterfinger Baking Bits for the first time and couldn't resist the temptation, so I had to buy a bag. I decided to make a batch of cookies to bring to the office and was admonished by someone in HR because she has to pass through the kitchen to get to her office and said that every time she did, she ate another cookie. ?I decided to make them Peanut Butter Cookies, and because Butterfingers are already "peanut-buttery," I...

Crustless Quiche

Aside from being tasty and perfect for any time of day, an egg dish, whether it's a quiche, omelette, frittata, scromelette, or crustless quiche, is a great way to clean out the fridge. If you haven't pre-planned your dish with specific add-ins, you can use up whatever veggie, meat, cheese, and/or herb scraps are lurking int the fridge. For a 9" quiche, I start with 5 or 6 eggs, 1/4 c of milk, and then start adding whatever happens to grab my...

Pasta e Fagioli

Let me preface this post by saying that the only reason I made such a HUGE batch was that when my sister moved out of state, she passed along what was left in her kitchen, including a bag of Great Northern Beans and a bag of Black Beans that I decided it was time to put to use. I have never actually worked with dry beans before. You more typically find Pasta e Fagioli recipes using Cannellini and Kidney Beans, but I'm not fond of Kidney Beans,...

Apricot-Almond Granola Sweetened with Apricot Preserves

Granola has been spoiled for me by the Golden Girl Granola Company. I was introduced to them a few years back and love their granola. Last year, I won second place in their annual recipe challenge and scored several bags, which I made the mistake of sharing with friends and family. I say it was a mistake because not long after that, I started eating homemade yogurt with fruit and a sprinkle of granola practically every morning for breakfast. I...
