E.S.T. in the Slow Cooker

While both of my sisters are wonderful cooks, I think I just didn’t get that gene. I mean, I’m OK, I can read a recipe (following it is whole ‘nother thing), but mostly I just can’t be bothered. I do like my rice cooker but I admit, I love my slow cooker. I can just throw stuff in there, and at the end of the day, voilà! perfectly cooked food! Easy peasy. Most of my recipes are simple. VERY simple. That often means that they are also relatively inexpensive to make as well. I think they are tasty too. Easy, Simple, Tasty – how can you beat that?

The Bite That Takes You Home

What food memory takes you home? What flavor or smell transports you to a long-ago time or place?
Baked custard is forever linked with my grandmother. Whether she came to our house, or we visited hers, there was always baked custard with nutmeg on top. She baked it in white milk glass custard cups. Custard and any food filled with custard remain my absolute favorite foods. My ultimate comfort food.
In honor of DreamWorks’ new film, The Hundred-Foot Journey, starring Helen Mirren, we’ll be sharing recipes inspired by the film this week.

Delicious and budget-friendly meals from Thanksgiving Leftovers

We hope everyone enjoyed a great Thanksgiving with friends and family. We’re so happy to have lots of leftovers. We’ll have turkey sandwiches (hot or cold) today for lunch, then I’ll start on the soup, pot pies, and shepherd’s pie. Ree Drummond, the Pioneer Woman, has some great recipes on her blog.
