A friend of Tim and I owns a restaurant, Mom’s Diner. It’s open for breakfast and lunch, and a dream come true for our friend. A few weeks ago we went for breakfast. Tim loves skillets,you know the breakfast with everything. I on the other hand, go for the sweet stuff…….and my fav is french toast. Once we perused the menu, I decided on Mom’s french toast. Thick cut french toast covered in crushed corn flakes……it was awesome.
I kept thinking about it and I wanted to try it at home. Then, as often happen with me, my mind starts whirling with possibilities………what if I used a different cereal?…….what if i stuffed it?……..how would something savory taste?……..maybe still a touch of sweet.
So, off to my source of constant inspiration …….the grocery store. Once again I have to say. I love to grocery shop!!!!! I could stay there for hours! Continue reading →
It seems that certain foods run a hot streak, and these days nothing is hotter than cauliflower. You can find recipes for all kinds of cauliflower, it can be made into sauces, roasted, it makes a perfect “mashed potato” substitute and of course it makes a beautiful soup.
Recently a recipe caught my eye on Pinterest. It was a whole roasted cauliflower swimming in a pool of beer cheese sauce. It looked scrumptious. The recipe was from Joy the Baker. I must say I felt “Joy” after making this recipe…….so thank you Joy the Baker!
Let’s just say that sometimes, nothing but a big fat juicy burger can satisfy a craving, and sometimes, you need to step out of the box and do something a little different…….Johnny Appleslaw Burger.
I have had a thing for apples lately. Not sure why, but they sound good all the time…….alone, just a juicy, shiny, crispy apple. Dipped in caramel, or peanut butter…….baked into a pie or crisp…..hmmm. So why not on a burger?????Continue reading →
How many snacky, trail mixy, dried fruit and nut mixes are there?………hundreds, thousands……perhaps, I exaggerate, but there are plenty of them. The one thing they all seem to have in common……….raisins. I really do not like raisins. I am not sure why, but I just don’t.
Sorry California Raisins……..but I’m sure, you heard it through the grapevine that you are not my favorite thing. I dumped you for other dries fruits. I love, love, love dried cranberries. I will eat them on anything. I have the same feeling about dried pineapple, those sweet, chewy, nuggets……..hmmm.
Tim and I look at all those mixes at the store, but have a hard time choosing because of my raisin aversion. So, we usually don’t buy them, or if we do, I end up picking out the raisins….what a pain!
