After a quick trip to the market, Speedy checked his Facebook account, found a lot of Happy St. Patrick’s Day greetings from his family, relatives and friends in the U.S. and asked if I had posted anything for St. Patrick’s Day.

Slow cooker recipe: Bacon, cheese and potato casserole

Still experimenting with alternative methods of cooking, after using the pressure cooker for a couple of recipes, I now turn to my slow cooker.

This little pig is all we?ve got this weekend

We already knew that Sam wouldn’t be coming home this weekend because she’ll be out of town on a photo shoot. We were, however, expecting that Alex would be home. In fact, because she doesn’t have classes on Fridays, we made preliminary arrangements to pick her up on Thursday afternoon. But she couldn’t come home [...]

Pasta with crumbled Hungarian sausage and yogurt

A simple, easy and very tasty pasta dish that you can cook in one pan. Right, one pan (a wok is ideal). Who wants to wash a ton of pans and utensils anyway? The secret is in a very tasty sausage. And if you’re not a fan of sausage fat (although it’s very tasty, I [...]
