Scotch Eggs with Horseradish-Mustard Dipping Sauce

Scotch Eggs with Horseradish-Mustard Dipping Sauce

Maybe I really am as random as KB thinks.  I mean, out of the blue I start to think about something random and then I want to make it.  Like scotch eggs.  Scotch eggs are traditionally a British food and consist of sausage wrapped around a hard boiled egg.  I normally think about sausage and

Sesame Noodles

My children are picky.  I keep hoping I’m imagining it, but chances are I’m not.  I’ve grown to expect it from my 4 year old.  But I think my 20 month old is following in her footsteps.  I’m always on the hunt for something I can feed them that is healthy and that will fill

Curry Chicken Enchiladas

I’m kind of obsessed with the Jewelry Vixen.  Everything she makes is beautiful.  She posted these earrings on her Facebook page the other day and I accidentally bought them.   The picture doesn’t do them justice.  They look even better on!  She has a store on Etsy if you want to check her out. So the

Soy – Glazed Salmon

I think salmon has always been my favorite fish.  I normally love eating it raw in the sushi form, but have been trying to cook it more for the family.  So after I did my blog on the salmon packets, the Smokin’ Coastie himself (shoutout to Ron Owens) commented that I should try with brown

White Chicken Chili

With the end of the winter weather nowhere in sight, I’ve made a few “comfort” food dishes recently.  I’m definitely a big fan of chili – and normally I like a traditional red chili, with ground meat and chili beans and chunks of tomatoes and vegetables.  And I’ve definitely made a green chili or two. 

Eggscellent Egg Salad

I always forget about egg salad when I’m making lunches for KB and the kids.  Probably because unless you have boiled eggs sitting around in your refrigerator, it takes a lot of steps to make egg salad.  First you have to boil the eggs and peel them.  And then you have to make the salad.  Nine times

Savory Morning Muffins

I’m big into breakfast.  I could eat breakfast for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.  Normally that includes bacon and eggs.  But the other day I decided to go out on a limb and make some savory muffins with ham and cheese and cracked black pepper.  I had already fed my kids breakfast and was trying to kill

Iceberg Wedge Salad

There’s not a lot to making a salad.  Just some chopped up veggies and a dressing.  But there’s something delicious about a light and healthy salad – the crunch of the vegetables and a nice creamy, tangy dressing.  The other day KB requested I make an iceberg wedge salad for dinner.  I’ve seen a lot of different

Lettuce Wraps

I’ve been fascinated by double duty dinners lately.  I love the idea where you make one dish and then can re-make it in a completely different way!  I’ve seen a lot of those but never really tried it.  Until the other day.  So remember how I randomly made potstickers?  Well, I saved half the meat

Coconut Lime Rice

Right about now I’m tired of snow days.  I knew it wasn’t going to be fun during winter when I moved back to the East Coast.  But I haven’t lived here in over 10 years, so maybe I was delusional in thinking I would be able to survive all the snow days.  Don’t get me
