Pumpkin Donut Muffins

I’ve seen a few recipes for donut muffins, but have never actually made any. I saw this one in Nov Everyday Food and the pumpkin part drew me in, so I decided to make them. This was super easy. Just mix it all up in a bowl, bake in muffin tins and then roll in … Read more

Orange Balsamic Chicken

This recipe is from Nov Everyday Food. I was desperate for something quick on a busy weeknight and chicken is usually what I turn to on those nights. I thought I would give this recipe a try. I altered this to fit my needs, so I’ll share my version of the recipe with you (Martha … Read more

Grilled Corn with Sour Cream and Cheese

I don’t make corn a lot as a vegetable, because, as I like to point out, it is actually a grain. But there’s something so summery about corn on the cob that I make it a few times each summer (mostly when we’ve got local corn which won’t happen for another 6 weeks or so). … Read more

Tangy Chicken with Orzo

I wasn’t excited about this recipe, then I saw Martha and Sarah Carey make it on tv and thought I would give it a try. I did a major cheat though – I used boneless, skinless breasts. But it actually worked out. You brown the chicken (I did this quickly) then cook onion and garlic. … Read more

Pea Pesto

Pea pesto? Seriously? Seriously. This recipe was in March Everyday Food. I’m a sucker for pasta and for pesto and was intrigued by the idea. It sounds weird, but it actually was pretty good. Here’s the deal. Cook one cup frozen peas then whiz them in the Cuisinart with one cup parsley, 1/2 walnuts (I … Read more

Mexican Hot Chocolate Cookies

Another cookie post. This is getting dangerous. My issue of April Everyday Food is here and I am excited! I had to make the Mexican Hot Chocolate cookies immediately. These are chocolate cookies dipped in a sugar/cinnamon mix (I did not add chili powder which was optional). I loved these cookies! They were easy to … Read more

Poached Egg Cobb Salad

I have never been a fan of poached eggs. My mother used to make them. She used tuna fish cans with the tops and bottoms removed as the molds, but her eggs were always runny. I don’t like runny whites. Even the thought of it makes me shiver! I had poached eggs in NYC one … Read more

Roasted Fish and Mushrooms

File this one under “who would’ve thought?” I have to admit this recipe from March Everyday Food didn’t sound very good to me and I expected it to be not so great. Surprise! I used mahi-mahi for this one and it tasted great with the mushrooms, which are roasted by themselves first. You then set … Read more

Pizza Dough Cinnamon Apple Tarts

Pizza dough take two. Following yesterday’s post about using pizza dough to make cinnamon rolls, today’s post is about the recipe in March Everyday Food using pizza dough to make apple cinnamon tarts. I used pre-made dough for this. You roll it out, dot with butter, roll again and refrigerate. Then cut into 4 rectangles … Read more

Pizza Dough Cinnamon Rolls

I love new uses for old things. In March Everyday Food, Martha is re-purposing pizza dough. I had some dough in the freezer I wanted to use up (no, I didn’t make it myself!). Cinnamon rolls are just decadent, so I was interested to see if you can really make them from pizza dough. First … Read more
