Homemade Corned Beef Hash: Pandemic version

Every year I really look forward to Cooking up some corned beef & cabbage for the holiday. It means that I’ll be having some fresh corned beef hash that Sunday for breakfast. Usually as I put the Corned Beef dinner away, I’ll make sure to separate a small portion for hash. Cabbage & water in the hash isn’t on the list, but isn’t too bad. … Continue reading Homemade Corned Beef Hash: Pandemic version

Conversation Heart Cookies

Not quite along the lines of a how to cooking recipe but certainly something you can throw together easily enough that I’d like to share. I wanted something different than the “Necco” conversation hearts. Time stamp: I also hear that the company which bought them, is having another issue this year making them. Anyhow. I wanted to try out cookie flooding as well as edible … Continue reading Conversation Heart Cookies

Cream Cheese & Apple GC

Cream cheese & apples together, is a great combination. If you haven’t spread some cream cheese on your green apple slices I suggest that you try it.           Do both. That, or this recipe right here. The third part of my Flipwich or panini Grilled Cheese sandwiches, is Tea Time. As you can see in the opening picture, the crust is cut off the sandwich. … Continue reading Cream Cheese & Apple GC

Apples & Onions Grilled Cheese Sandwich

I am going to put up a series of sandwiches that I used to make on a panini press, & before when I used to “ride the ferries off Water St”. Quite a few families would take these with them on the ride to where they were going; so I added so,me instant photo/vacation theme to the pictures to lighten things up. Careful these are … Continue reading Apples & Onions Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Chia Eggs

Not just for Terracotta growing. Making a vegan egg substitute is pretty easy. Makes One “Egg” 1 Tablespoon ground chia seeds or flax 3 Tablespoons water I was surprised that the ‘whole to ground chia seeds’ ratio was nearly the same. Using my mortar & pestle I ground three tablespoons of chia seeds which produced 3 1/2 tablespoons.   Whisk together the ground seeds and … Continue reading Chia Eggs

One pan rustic Dinner for your bestie

Your little poopers aren’t spoiled, really. OK, yes they are. But like any member of your family you want to give them the best, & watch what they eat. With so many unhealthy items getting into our fur baby’s tummys, it makes sense to make their food. Not every dog is going to dive in to each meal, pretty much the same as non furry … Continue reading One pan rustic Dinner for your bestie

Sloppy Joe

What a great smol or little meal. Even if you keep it neat, sloppy Joe’s are a great meal. They really aren’t difficult to make, adding the right spices is important. You certainly want something more than just ketchup & hamburger. 1 can tomato paste (6oz) 6 oz hot (1 can) water for blending 1 Tb garlic minced 1/2 tsp chili powder 2 tsp Dijon … Continue reading Sloppy Joe

Air Fried Chicken Strips

Oil isn’t always good for you, especially in larger amounts. Some people can’t even have a little of it, with out upsetting the cart (so-to-speak). I am exclusively using my Ninja Foodi & the Air Crisp feature on the unit. I like the flavor, & certainly love not having to “deep fat fry” so much. Let me say, unless for health reasons, you can have … Continue reading Air Fried Chicken Strips
