A 65 year old woman walked into the kitchen this morning and made herself a cup of coffee. It seemed like the right thing to do so I went ahead and made her some breakfast. Happy birthday, Faye!
Earlier this week I realized that russets are my least favorite kind of potatoes. I had ordered a baked potato with all the fixings (except for bacon) at a pretty good restaurant and was struck by how dry it was even though it came with butter and sour cream. I guess that’s why there is … More Baked Potato With Mushrooms & Spinach
It’s no secret that I love peppers – hot ones, mild ones and everything in-between. Some peppers beg to be stuffed, as did these Anaheim Chiles. This is the kind of dish that makes me want to throw caution to the wind and pull out all the stops, but believe it or not, although … More Stuffed Anaheim Chiles With Mole Sauce

The thing I disliked most about it was the mushy texture, and the thought of crispy eggplant was intriguing. I used the slender Ichiban variety which … More Eggplant Jerky & Cauliflower Potato Croquettes
It was just a regular eggs and potatoes breakfast I had planned to do in the Cuisinart® Oven Central® but evidently my Oven Central has bitten the dust.
This was originally intended to be a Scalloped Parsnip & Potato Pie, crust and all. It proved to be an overly ambitious goal for the time remaining after frittering away too much time playing on the internet. As it turned out, the crust would never be missed if the possibility hadn’t been suggested. A few … More Scalloped Parsnip & Potato Bake
We enjoy a lot of variety in our meals and do our best not to get stuck in a boring routine. Of course there are favorite dishes we like to revisit from time to time but even those are never exactly the same every time we have them. Fried potatoes in some fashion show up … More Potato Cauliflower Breakfast Fry
