Hawaiian Sweet Potatoes

These have nothing to do with being Hawaiian except that it’s in the vein of calling things with pineapple “Hawaiian” – like I could be wrong, but I’m pretty sure what we call a Hawaiian pizza (canadian bacon/ham with pineapple) isn’t actually from Hawaii. Y’know, just saying and all. Like how German Chocolate Cake isn’t…

Fresh Garden Salsa

Over the summer at the Rumpus Room, Archaellys and I grew a few tomato plants and they seemed to ripen all at the same time.  What do you do with a metric asston of tomates?  Make salsa, of course! Now my only thing is that you really need to taste test as you go because…

Homemade Gluten Free Onion Rings

I love onion rings because they’re amazing.  What I don’t love is that stuffed up gluteny feel after pigging out on gluteny things.  So I found an awesome way to make onion rings myself and now the bad thing is I want to batter everything in this and fry it.  Total new problem.  Siiiiiiiiiigh.  But…

Parmesan Risotto

Holy crap it’s been a while since I’ve posted in here.  I’m really sorry guys.  I’m even sorry that it’s like a never ending apology show below the actual recipes and food posts that go up in here.  There has been quite a bit going on though… First is that my job has been crazy….

Lost Thanksgiving Recipe Round-Up

There were a few recipes missing from my Thanksgiving post so I’m going to put them all in one place: here.  I know Thanksgiving is pretty much a distant memory as we move closer to Christmas.  It was only a little more than a week ago, guys.  Seriously.  A week.  WTF? Anyway, back to the…

Buffalo Chicken Bites and Gluten Free Mac and Cheese

HOLY SWEET BABY JEBUS.  Mac and cheese was my ultimate comfort nom when I was kid.  I would make the blue box stuff almost every Saturday morning for myself at first thing and have it for breakfast while I watched Saturday Morning Cartoons.  And I don’t mean the sissy cartoons they show now (do Saturday…

Thanksgiving Extravaganza!!

Thanksgiving is pretty much my favorite holiday. I mean, Thanksgiving is basically Christmas without all the gift giving crap.  Don’t get me wrong, gifts are cool and all, but I totally stress out about who to get presents for and being fair and all kinds of crap.  So… just… no.  Let’s eat.  I’m all about…

Roasted Carrots and Swiss Chard

These two recipes will conclude the first series of Movie Night Noms.  I like to break up the recipes so they’re not all in one post, but I’m curious if other people like this format. Comment if you have an opinion about it – otherwise I’ll assume this is fine. Roasted carrots are stupid easy…

Mashed Potatoes and Gravy

Who doesn’t love mashed taters and gravy?  They go with everything, especially giant loaves of meat.  They’re really very simple, but everyone always has their own version of mashed potatoes that they swear by.  This is a pretty basic recipe, but just like the meatloaf, it can be augmented to be any other form of…

Spaghetti Squash with Ground Turkey

I used to loooooooooove eating pasta.  I could eat noodles all day e’ryday.  I’d have Top Ramen for breakfast, buttered noodles for lunch, and spaghetti for dinner.  That’s kind of how I ended up with the figure I used to have. Now I find way to sneak in more veggies in place of noodles and…

Roasted Chicken Dinner 3: Roasted Fennel and Green Beans

K, so I’m wrapping these last two bits into the same post between they’re relatively simple.  One more time, here’s that pic again since I’m lame and forgot to take individual shots. (Maybe I’ll add in some pics after the next time I make these. I have them in regular rotation at the moment). Fennel…
