I kept my head down for #BreadBakers the last couple of months when the themes were whole grain. Even though the vast majority of the bread we eat around here is whole grain, the theme just didn’t speak to me. But when my pal Anshie of SpiceRoots chose the theme “Griddle Breads” for this month, […]

Chings, Junior Style #ProgressiveEats: Florida-Mex Memories from the Space Coast

a chicken chings junior style-1

Memory Lane I have a love-hate relationship with Florida. On one hand, it’s hot and bad there. On the other hand, it’s where The Beloved grew up. On one hand, I lived in Florida during the hanging chads debacle. So there’s that. On the other, Florida is where my Beloved used to ride his bicycle in front […]

Dessert Poutine for #SundaySupper and #FWCon

a dessert poutine-4

I’m going to say right up front that Dessert Poutine is a Maverick recipe. It doesn’t meet the criteria of 1/2 Idaho potato per person for the Idaho Potato Commission’s Recipe Contest for this year’s Food Wine Conference (#FWCon).

Classic Shoo Fly Pie | #tbtfood

a shoo fly pie-10

Man oh man, but our grandmothers and their mothers and grandmothers before them knew how to take a lot of nothing and turn it into something sublime. I don’t mean to say that the ingredients in classic shoo fly pie are dumb–they’re all pretty much pantry staples–but there were no fancy or gourmet ingredients necessary. […]
