Pesto Chicken Cavatappi with Pickled Peppadews

Ever have an idea in mind that, when you go to execute it, turns into something else? That's what happened with this. My problem is that it was so well received, if I get a chance to make it the way I had envisioned, I'll probably hear "Why did you change it? We liked it the way it was." Sigh...Everyone was running around doing whatever yesterday, and it occurred to me that nobody had ever mentioned dinner - who would be cooking, what we were...

Spinach-Artichoke Cheese Bouregs (Phyllo Triangles)

I love the combination of spinach and artichoke. I'm surprised it didn't occur to me to do this sooner. One of my favorite appetizers is a hot spinach and artichoke dip with nice, thin, crispy tortilla chips. This is sort of a portable, self-contained spinach dip.If making phyllo triangles is new to you - cheese bouregs, spanikopita, etc., you can refer to my original post here for pictures.INGREDIENTS :16 oz Muenster cheese, shredded or grated8...

Homemade Madzoon (Yogurt) Redux - with Observations Over Time

When I first started making my own yogurt, I read a bunch of different recipes and combined what sounded like it made the most sense. Since then, I've been making it at least twice a month, so I've changed my process over time to make it even simpler.INGREDIENTS / TOOLS:1 qt milkYogurt for a starter - with live active culturesHeavy-bottomed pot works bestWhiskLarge Covered BowlLarge TowelThermometer - optionalVanilla - optionalMilk Powder -...

Cranberry-Apple-Jalapeno Crusted Pork Roast

This recipe was borne out of a surplus of fresh cranberries I was left with in my freezer following the holidays this year. I had no idea what I wanted to do with them until I happened upon a great deal on a pork roast. Cranberry and pork go well together, apples and pork go well together, cranberries and apples certainly go well together ... throw in a jalapeno for a little heat/flavor and some butter, and how can you go wrong???Whenever I make...

Top 10 of 2016 - And a Confession of Sorts

I'm sorry to say the pikins were pretty slim for this year's Top 10.  That's where the confession comes in... Back in February, I had a snowball of symptoms that temporarily threw my life into a tailspin. There was everything from wonky vision (I was practically blind for a while there), severe dry mouth, and leg cramps, all the way to a large portion of my hair falling out. Because my current job doesn't include benefits, I had no...

Tabbouleh

I usually prefer the red tabouli (Eetch), but every once in a while, I'll throw together a batch of the traditional, especially if I have a surplus of parsley kicking around. As with the red, it's great scooped up with wedges of a nice fresh pita, cucumber chips, as a topping on crackers or pita chips, etc. Sometimes I'll just make a salad and throw a scoop over the top.For the tomatoes, you can use whatever is available to you, but I prefer to...

Spinach-Artichoke Hummus

One of my favorite things to eat is a nice hot, cheesy, gooey Spinach and Artichoke Dip. That said, you may have noticed that I've been on a bit of a Hummus kick lately. When I looked in the pantry a week or two ago and saw a can of quartered artichoke hearts, I decided to add an Artichoke Hummus to my To-Do List. Then I started thinking about the dip and decided to make it a spinach/artichoke version. That turned out to be a great idea for a...

Zombie Eyes ... And a Lesson Learned

I threw these together at the last minute for an office pot-luck today. Strangely, the last time I made a version of these pretzel/kiss treats (Salty Kisses), I also had a lesson learned. That time, it was not to use the caramel-filled kisses. This time, it was not to use the Pumpkin Spice kisses. I don't know what they're made of, but it's apparently not chocolate! No matter what heat setting I tried, I couldn't get those buggers to melt. Makes...

Concord Grape Pie

I had never heard of Grape Pie until one of the guys I work with mentioned it, but apparently, it's a big thing in this part of NY. It is actually his favorite pie, so when I happened to come across some concord grapes at a local orchard, I couldn't help but try it. I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised - it turns out that a grape pie isn't all that different from a blueberry pie. I was afraid it would be like eating a slab of grape jelly...

Chipotle-Adobo Roasted Chicken

When cleaning out the freezer recently I found a zip-top bag of Chipotle Chiles in Adobo Sauce. I vaguely remembered opening a can a while back but couldn't remember what I had used it for. Also having a chicken in the fridge at the time, I decided to thaw out the chiles to make this Cihpotle-Adobo Roasted Chicken.I'm not a big sauce/gravy person, so it didn't occur to me at the time, but this would have been even more awesome if I had used the...
