Monday morning I smirked in the mirror. I rolled my eyes as I covered a small love bite under my left collarbone with concealer. I was unprepared for the breakup Monday night. I didn’t think I’d be the one who was left. I knew this relationship wasn’t going the distance. If my google search, “I don’t think I’m attracted to my … More Grief and roasted cream of celery soup.
This is kind of a clean out the fridge dish. Use any mix of veggies you like. Turkey would work well instead of chicken. Maybe even diced leftover pork chop? I’m reluctant to use beef because I feel like cream sauce and beef aren’t super friendly, but you do you. Creamy chicken, veg and pasta casserole, … More Baked chicken pasta casserole.
We’re getting a serious dose of autumn today in Ohio. The high isn’t expected to get out of the mid 50s. Ergo something warm and comforting: vegetarian Thai red curry. This is just kind of a riff on the recipe that’s listed on the red curry paste label. Mix and match whatever veggies you prefer. … More Veggie Thai red curry.
A new kitchen, like a new pair of shoes, needs a break in period. In general, I find there’s an acquaintance period with a new place. Whether it’s figuring out how to arrange the refrigerator or which burner on the range is the best (front right), there are going to be ups (scratch pasta sauce) … More Roasted vegetable egg bake.

I do love having Mondays off work, if only to avoid someone telling my grumpy ass self, “Looks like someone has got a case of the Mondays.” I’m going to spit in your face. And it is going to be a big loogey. That’s a great description to have in a food blog, isn’t it? … More Cupboard clearing veg & herb stew
Hello, my name is Elizabeth and I have had CCBNS since Dec. 20, 2011. CCBNS, or Christmas Cookie Break Now Syndrome, started when nice and caring colleagues bring in all manner of sweet treats baked with love. It is horrible. I mean, the goodies are lovely and delicious, but my sugar intake has skyrocketed and I find … More Culinary Limbo.
Fall has finally come to the northern hemisphere. From here on out it is mainly about roasting veggies, drinking apple cider and baking cookies – at least for me anyway. To celebrate I decided to make beef stew. I love beef stew; it’s just what a crisp night needs. A thick sauce studded with chunks … More Enter the fall.
