Oven Roasted Kohlrabi

Oven Roasted Kohlrabi

So the other day I was at the farmer’s market and I saw a vegetable that I had never used before.  Kohlrabi.  It looked like an alien head.  So naturally, I wanted to try it.  It’s similar to a turnip and comes from the cabbage family.   I would compare it to the texture and

Smoked Bacon

Hello, my name is Caroline and I’m addicted to bacon.  Yes I went there.  But really, tell me who doesn’t like bacon?  I truly think I could become a vegetarian if it wasn’t for bacon.  I saw an article recently about some scientists that made seaweed that looked and tasted like bacon.  I don’t buy

Mexican Pasta Salad

Pasta salad is one of those dishes that is like a blank canvas.  It’s simple: noodles, veggies, meat or cheese, and a dressing.  Done and done.  I like pasta salad for a side when it’s hot out.  Something about it just screams picnic or barbecue.   I also happen to like pasta salad for feeding

French Toast Breakfast Casserole

KB loves french toast.  Way more than me.  Or our children.  The only problem I have with french toast is that the frying pan that I use to make it does not fit more than 2 pieces of french toast.  So here’s how it goes.  I make 2 pieces of french toast for the kids,

Gochujang Grilled Cheese

Remember how I went on a grilled cheese bender a little while ago?  This was a part of that bender.  My sister Marie went to Korea a little while ago and brought me back some gochujang.  Which I wasn’t quite sure how to use.  And then I just started putting it on everything.  It’s not

Pesto Salmon Sandwich

When I first met KB he was strictly a meat and potatoes guy.  Gradually over the last 14 years, he’s picked up eating seafood.  Sushi first and more recently lobster rolls.  He copied me on the lobster rolls.  I think it started when we went to Maine so I could eat a Maine lobster roll.

Pancake Breakfast Tacos

So this is like Pancakes Part Two…Pancake Breakfast Tacos.  You know how I mentioned yesterday that I’m more of a savory breakfast person?  Yup, I like bacon and eggs.  But who doesn’t?  Anyways, I was on a roll after I made my buttermilk pancakes.  And I thought, how can I make these more savory?  Why

Martha’s Buttermilk Pancakes

So there’s always much debate on the best buttermilk pancake recipe.  And what kind of pancake…blueberry, strawberry, banana, chocolate chip?  I’m not a huge sweet breakfast person.  I prefer bacon and eggs.  But of course KB and my tiny humans prefer pancakes and french toast.  KB will only eat his with maple syrup. Hence the

Cumin Spiced Pork Chops

I think pork chops are like a blank canvas.  They can be as boring or as exciting as you make them.  I’m always looking for new ways to make pork chops.  I think it’s just because I can easily get stuck in a chicken and steak rut and need some inspiration. KB has always liked
