july august menu

Summertime cooking is hit or miss for me. It’s so hot, so it’s hard to really want to cook. But this year we got a grill, so that changed things a lot! pepperoni burgers | I really made these in June, but wanted to recap here since I forgot to include it in the June recap. It’s a unique take on burgers, that will be sure …

I found some fantastic recipes during May & June that I can’t wait to share with you. Summer time is my favorite time of year, despite the over 100° days. I have been slowly working on my patio, making it comfy and a great place to hang out. I got these chairs & ottoman on sale at World Market at the beginning of the summer …

[week 35] Overall a pretty boring week on the cooking front. I made two different types of meatballs… turkey and beef/pork combo. Very different results… Earlier in the week, I had some leftover ground turkey so I made these turkey meatballs with a greek yogurt/sriracha dipping sauce. I am so paranoid when cooking chicken and turkey I totally over baked them so they were a …

menu recap [weeks 29 thru 32]

daisi - August 13, 2012

The past few weeks, hell, months have flown by for us. Each week I’ve been meaning to do a “recap” and each week, I forget or it feels like not enough to “recap.” One recipe does not a recap make. Or would it be one recap does not a recipe make. Either way, you get my drift. Not a lot of activity going on in the …

[Weeks 12 & 13] Okay – I’ve been on a cooking hiatus so this is more of a life recap, than a menu recap. Starting with St. Patrick’s Day, I went out to eat for almost EVERY meal. Not good, not good. But here a few pics of my St. Patty’s celebration as a consolation. Sam was gone for 2 weeks and the only thing I …

menu recap white

After a Sunday dinner of deep dish pizza at Savastano’s we were left with a LOT of leftovers. So our dinners for Monday & Tuesday weren’t too exciting and didn’t involve cooking. Wednesday, I attended a gnocchi cooking class at the Urban Kitchen on Cherry Street with Molly. So I didn’t really cook that night either. Finally on Thursday I made the first meal of the …

Sunday: Stuffed Zucchini with Cheesy Breadcrumbs I received my first produce bag from the Natural Farms co-op I joined. It was packed full of zucchini so I decided to try this stuffed zucchini recipe. We paired it with some leftover steak we had, but it’d be great with just about anything or by itself if you’re vegetarian. Monday: Roasted Chicken with Honey Glazed Carrots I meant to serve …
