Recipe: Lobster mac ‘n’ cheese

So, yeah, it's been awhile. My bad. I've no excuses outside of general laziness mixed in with some selfishness. In the spirit of getting back into it, I thought I'd share the meal I made the night I proposed that JB and I get married. She said yes; feel free to take that as a […]

Homemade peanut butter cups

Here was a good afternoon project: peanut butter cups. They were time-consuming, but fairly easy to make. Food you'll need: • 2 boxes Baker's chocolate (I used 54% cacao, which has 6g sugar per serving; could probably have used darker for healthier) • Fat (I used 2 sticks butter; if you want healthier, go coconut […]

Jason’s homemade brocolli calzones

This is a recipe by Jason, a Syracuse attorney known on Twitter as @jaseface1. I'm not usually a recipe kinda guy, but I'll mix it up and give it a shot when I get back into the starches in a few weeks. 1 package active dry yeast 1 cup warm water 2 tablespoons olive oil […]

Recipe: Chocolate, fruit and nut bark

Yummy, dessert! What happens when you're experimenting with high-cacao chocolates (because they're actually good for you!) and you come across one that is just plain inedible? You make something yummy, of course! This was a 100% cacao chocolate bar. No milk, no sugar. Way too bitter to eat by itself. If you're like me and […]

Recipe: Haddock and escarole

Sorry about the unsaturated cell phone blurriness, but I was too hungry to grab my camera! Sometimes dinner's just so delicious it needs to wind up on the blog. And so it was with Sunday night's fare. This started with large haddock fillets rubbed down with a Central New York favorite – a Java Gourmet […]

Quick & Easy Chili Recipe

Tim: "Is this your 3-day chili?" Me: "No, it was an afternoon quickie." Tim: "Well, those can be just as hot sometimes." This is a 3-hour chili recipe, but if you used a stove-top pot instead of a crock pot, it would go quicker. You'll need: 1 lb black beans, rinsed 1 lb kidney beans, […]

How to make borscht

If you've been following my daily food intake on Facebook, you'll notice that I'm having a bowl of borscht every night. Last Sunday, we made enough soup for the week. It's ridiculously easy, and tastes better as the week goes on. Ingredients: 6 fresh beets 1 beef bone (we used a split knuckle bone, because […]

Homemade Paella

I haven't really had a chance to try something new in the kitchen for a while. So I thought, "Hmm, who wouldn't love some paella tonight?" And there was paella. I cooked the rice in a rice cooker; it's white rice with turmeric, because apparently saffron is unavailable in my local supermarket. I did a […]

Recipe: Tropical fruit pork

This one was real easy and really tasty. I'm not actually sure how much pork I used; I got a huge tenderloin and cut it into a few parts and froze most of it. But you could use this on any amount of pork that fits in a 9x13 casserole dish. - Pork, cut into […]

Mushroomed Steak and Scallops Over Rice

I'm getting really good at the one-pan thing. Sure, I did the rice in a cooker, but here was last night's dinner. I used chuck steak and bay scallops to keep the cost down. The chuck steak gets soft enough if you cook it in enough liquid, and it turned out that the bay scallops […]
