A perfect Christmas dish for a large and noisy company is ready! Obviously those from Aunt Bessie’s are popular for a wide range of frozen products and especially … [Read more...]

Product Review – Nestle Seasonal Holiday Candy (w/ Candy Cane Bark recipe)

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Recipes – Chocolate Eclair Cake

A while back, a saw a recipe for a Chocolate Eclair Cake in the Mr. Food Newsletter.  The picture looked absolutely mouthwatering, so I decided to check it out.  The recipe is quick and easy to make, only has a few ingredients and you don't have to bake it. All you need is some french vanilla pudding, cool whip, milk, chocolate frosting and graham crackers.  It took me about 10 minutes to mix the filling (milk, pudding, cool whip) and layer it in a 9x13 baking dish with the graham crackers.  … [Read more...]

Recipe – Jasmine’s Brussels Sprouts

Jason found this recipe a few weeks ago and we love it.  I use frozen Brussels sprouts instead of fresh, mostly because the store doesn't have them all the time, and I use regular bacon instead of panchetta.  The last time I fixed it, I also added in capers.allrecipes.com - Jasmine's Brussels Sprouts … [Read more...]

experiments in cooking – onigiri

Last night I decided to try my had at making onigiri, rice balls, to go with dinner last night.  I found a good sounding recipe on Recepiezaar.  Now I understand why they sell the little triangle molds.  It's really hard to mold them if your not familiar with making them.  My hands kept drying up, causing the rice to stick to me.  My rice balls ended up looking more like eggs, but they came out really good.  I caught Jason getting up in the middle of the night to eat some more of them, so I know … [Read more...]
