Gluten Free Orange Chicken

I used to eat Chinese take out all the time for lunch when I worked at the nursery.  There was a local restaurant within walking distance that had a really good deal on lunch specials.  It got to the point that they recognized our work number and we had the lunch specials memorized by number….

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…

Food Porn: Pizookie

Yessssss…. Paleo Pizookie, where have you been my entire life?  Find the recipe here.  I just didn’t have cast iron pans so I made it in a 8×8″ pan and cut it into bars.  I might have un-paleo’d it though with some whipped cream that has some Bailey’s in it.  Oops.

Garlic Bread Pizza

So this one time when Arc was craving French Bread Pizza and the store was out because there was a sale, Snarfy and Arc had an idea… Snarfy offered to actually make French Bread Pizza for him, but Arc wanted to one up it into Garlic Bread Pizza.  Of freaking course!  Arc is a genius!…

Pot Roast

Pot Roast.  Two magical words right there.  POT freaking ROAST. Pot roast was one of my absolute favorites as a kid.  My aunt would make it for me when I would come for my annual summer visits and I didn’t even care if it was hot outside and the oven warmed up the house.  She…

Food Porn: Nick’s Family Restaurant

  Seriously Snarfy?  No posts for almost a month?  WTF? I’m sorry, people.  I’m working on catching up.  I promise.  Life has just been… well… life.  In the meantime, here’s some food porn from a local favorite.  It’s a Joe’s Special with jack cheese and home fries.  OM NOM NOM!

Food Porn: Breakfast

I’m sorry guys. I’ve been really bad about staying on top of my posts. Ideally, I would have the movie night nom post up either on movie night or the day after. Here I am posting last week’s dinner and it’s come back around to the next movie night already. Dang. Life just gets in…

Hamburger Soup

So soup season, y’all.  California has had some crazy non-winter weather lately, but it was actually chilly out not that long ago so I wanted to make soup.  I also have Five Guys on the brain, but I really need to get back on track with the eating, so I threw together a hamburger soup. …

Food Porn: Casino Dinner Buffet

What do you do when you get to the casino buffet three minutes before they close?  That actually means that the food will start getting pulled in about 25 minutes, so there’s plenty of time for one trip, but don’t you “need to get your money’s worth?”  Hahaha!  Archaellys and I celebrated Single Awareness Day…

Beef Stew

Confession time: I didn’t like stew as a child.  I was more about soup.  But now I loooooove stew.  Especially when it’s cold out.  OMG yes.  Here’s a pretty basic recipe that you can make on the stovetop if you have an hour or two until dinner.  If you have longer, go ahead and assemble…

Finger Foods of Epicness

I must hate me.  Seriously, because why else would I make a dinner consisting of only finger foods?  While I loooooooove finger foods something fierce, they are one of the harder things to assemble when there’s an assortment.  But here’s what I made for movie night on January 31 (sorry it’s late… been busy with…

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…
