This cake is “PALEO”. I have a general idea of what this means though I do not eat this way. If you do, this cake is for you. If you eat like me, this cake is also for you (I swear – I made two cakes within 48 hours).
I heart puff pastry. I mean – it’s awesome. I don’t understand why anyone would ever make it because it’s just so fantastically flaky and perfect and comes right out of the box. You can also do about a bajillion things with it (roughly a bajillion – give or take).
Maybe you’re thinking… really?? Honestly, though, I’ve cooked and eaten so many “dippy eggs” (or maybe you call them “eggs over easy”) in my lifetime that I could probably make them in my sleep. It’s Tessa’s favorite “breakfast for dinner”, and what I make for Rich when dinner’s an afterthought.
I love scones. When I needed a big batch of “can’t miss” scones that would be crowd pleasing, I’d go to epicurious.com for this recipe – I’ve made these at least five times over the years. I figured I might as well share it on here, then in the future I can find it a lot easier! These would be perfect if you’re having guests in town for the upcoming holiday – make ahead and freeze them, just reheat the morning of.
The idea of this stew came from a Food Network Magazine, but I changed it a good bit. I loved that the ingredients list was so short and it was a slow cooker dish that required no work on the front end. I wasn’t sure what hominy was but the word was fun to say.
I must confess that this soup came to be when I looked at the ingredients that happened to be in my fridge and pantry and got to cooking. That being said, planning ahead doesn’t always yield happy results and more often than not, “a little of this and a little of that” is the best way to cook. Definitely the case here, though I’d add scallions if I were you.
We eat a lot of smoothies in our house so we have a LOT of bananas in the freezer. I snagged three before the latest banana freeze and hid them behind the TV on the kitchen counter (I’ve tried notes – hiding is better). Tessa and I kept an eye on them and waited patiently until they were appropriately speckled.
Yes, another pumpkin recipe. I know it’s a borderline joke now, the whole “pumpkin spice” phenomenon. I saw something the other day, like pumpkin spice cheese sticks or dog bones – I literally laughed out loud. Explaining why it was funny to Tessa was not fun and I think after a full five minutes of trying, I told her I needed a talking break.
