Another Spaghetti Squash Creation

Mission: make healthy dinner quick with what’s on hand, which happens to be primarily ground turkey and spaghetti squash… aaaand GO! Now before some of you go all “WHAT?! There’s butter and cream in the recipe! How is that GOOD for you??” These are generally good fats that help with nutrient absorption and good fats…

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…

Buffalo Chicken Spaghetti Squash

Have you ever had the magical vegetable that is spaghetti squash?  I have to admit that I wasn’t super fond of it the first time I tried it and occassionally I’m not so keen on what I’ve done with it.  I’m still learning what flavors I like when using spaghetti squash.  Sometimes it ends up…

Corned Beef and Cabbage

Wanna hear something mind blowing, my fellow Americans?  I’ve heard that corned beef and cabbage isn’t really a traditional Irish meal for St. Patrick’s Day.  Whaaaaaaaaaaat? Normally I would get all geeky and research this, but I’m going to go the lazy route and simply say that corned beef and cabbage is a tradition in…

Lost Movie Night Noms: Arc’s Birthday Dinner

It was Archaellys’ birthday not that long ago and somehow I forgot to post the coordinating movie night nom for that celebration. Oops. I don’t know how it happened, but the week must have gotten away from me. It’s always kind of my thing to let the birthday celebrant pick whatever they want and I’ll…

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…

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…
