This recipe is brought to you by Mother Necessity. Back in May, I was scrambling to put together a birthday dinner for my hubby after a busy day, and I realized partway through that I hadn’t made him a cake or a pastry or anything. Crap. So, I scrambled to toss something together, and after

Baked Eggplant Parmesan

Eggplant is kind of a strange fruit. It’s mostly water, and other than providing a reasonable amount of dietary fiber (about 5 grams per cup of eggplant), it really doesn’t have much else to offer on its own. However, its blandness and lack of… everything makes it a great vehicle for sauces, breadings, and other

This past weekend, this Miss became a Missus! To celebrate, I’m bringing you some delicious, way too easy to make, rich chocolate cake — in a mug! Don’t let the idea of eggy, dry mug cakes deter you. This mug cake is rich, moist, and doesn’t use egg! It’s an awesome dessert to make when

Last summer, I made my first batch of homemade ice cream. After the Neapolitan was a success, I tried my hand at huckleberry ice cream, which was also good, though I ran into the issue of huckleberries being a little too expensive to use for the whole recipe (note: if you want to imitate the flavor of

Pizza: The Basics

Pizza: The Basics
Posted in : dinner, easy, food, pizza, recipe, spicy, vegetables on by : Jeanette Rueb
Tags: , , , ,

Pizza is one of those foods that we order out so often, the art of making it at home is often overlooked. It’s not terribly difficult, it’s super customizable, and it is WAY cheaper than ordering delivery (and less greasy). Longtime readers might remember my Greek pizza recipe from… geez, three years ago… but that was

Chili? In summer?? Oh yeah, I went there. Even if you live somewhere hot, in my opinion, there’s never a wrong time of year for chili. This one even features a fresh summer vegetable — zucchini! The best thing about this recipe is that it’s another slow cooker feature, so you can set it and

That’s right, you heard me. They’re peanut butter cookies, and they’re stuffed — WITH CHOCOLATE! This cookie escapade started when I went over to my (soon to be) in-laws to discuss wedding plans and came home with a giant bag of chocolates. She wanted the candies to go away because she had bought too many,

Fried Tilapia

This recipe makes slightly ironic use of another recipe of mine, Gourmet Vegan All-Purpose Seasoning. While tilapia obviously isn’t vegan, this seasoning makes for a great crust/rub on this otherwise bland fish. What’s even better is that this recipe works great in a cast iron skillet. Intimidated by your skillet? Don’t be! Just reference the guide

When I asked the fiancé what he wanted for dinner the other day, he said, “I don’t know, something with vegetables.” Now, I’ll never pass up veggies, but the fact that they were specially requested made it extra important. Since I had also planned on inviting some friends over for dinner that night, I decided

Here’s yet another treasure from one of my old cookbooks. This one is brought to you by the 1913 publication, Household Discoveries and Mrs. Curtis’s Cook Book. 1, 2, 3, 4 cookies get their name from their ingredient list, which is based around 1 cup of butter, 2 cups of sugar, 3 cups of flour,
