Chicken & Apple Curry Soup

Our grocery store sometimes has this curry soup with chicken and apples in the hot food section, but not often enough. For some reason it seems they rarely have it, though. Naturally, this meant I had to try to replicate it. Note on the size of the apples – I cut them too big. You

The Saga of the Seared Scallops with Dragon Fruit Salsa (Disaster)

Dragon fruit looks cool, but it’s super boring. Think of it as kiwi’s boring cousin. I wanted to see if I could figure out how to liven it up. I like a good challenge, so why not? I saw a recipe on Food Network for seared scallops with dragon fruit salsa. The first red flag

Let’s Talk Knives

  I love a good knife. My favorite knife is the santoku, which is why I have 5 of them (4 in the photo, 1 is in one of the blocks). My Wusthof  chef’s knife (far left on the magnetic strip) is also on my favorites list. So you might be asking why the heck

If you need to throw together a baked something-or-other for a bake sale, birthday, office party, or whatever – these are very easy and fast. And everyone loves them!

There are only so many sandwiches you can eat from Thanksgiving leftovers before getting tired of them. My inspiration was this Tastefully Simple recipe for

Nana’s Carrot Cake

I can’t take credit for this gorgeous carrot cake that occasionally appears on my header image. My spouse (at the time) made that using a family recipe. This recipe is on the thinnest piece of paper ever. It was clearly typed on a typewriter, but I have no idea how the paper didn’t disintegrate when

Fruitcake Cookies

We used to make fruitcake cookies every Christmas when I was little. My mom has come to visit the last several years for Christmas, and we’ve made them again every time. They’re just so good! If you hate fruitcake, don’t assume you’ll hate these. They really don’t taste like an actual fruitcake. The main similarity with
