Friday Things

Today’s pic is a beautiful bouquet of flowers I received from my bf for my birthday.  Aren’t they purdy!!!  I just love that succulents were added. We don’t need to go into detail on how old I am, but I think I’m going to enjoy this one.  Miles gave me a great set of enamelware dishes…

Blueberry and Cream Cookies

About a week ago, I made blueberry cornbread, and bought way more blueberries than necessary for the recipe. I froze some for later use, but I still had a container that was on its last legs in the refrigerator, and needed to come up with another recipe quick. Blueberry and cream cookies. I’ve wanted to make…

General Tso Chicken

I’ve never had General Tso’s Chicken. I’ve heard of it, but the name alone never made sense to me as the name of a dish, so I never tried it. Until now. I needed a quick dinner, and I was short on supplies. I always seem to have chicken in the freezer, so I at…

Friday Things

Today’s pic is from my back yard.  I just got a little table and chairs for the deck and relaxed with a bagel and coffee.   This is also how I would like to spend this weekend.  I’m still torn with participating in any Cinco de Mayo activities because it’s so rainy and gloomy out…

MXDC

Blueberry Skillet Cornbread

I was in Whole Foods the other day (I’m actually there almost every day), walking around the salad bar trying to decide what veggie to have for lunch. They always have large squares of cornbread in the middle of the bar, which I find very tempting. On this day however, I noticed blueberry cornbread.  Blueberry? …

Elote (Roasted Corn Salad)

With the success of my red cabbage salad with lime cumin vinaigrette, I wanted to try my hand at another salad. Salads in general are a tough sell in my house. With Cinco de Mayo approaching, there are a ton of Mexican recipes out there and this elote (roasted corn salad) recipe from as easy…

Sausage and Cheddar Biscuits

It’s the weekend, and you’re low on funds, yet you still want a good-ish breakfast. What do you do? You grab a leftover tube of sage sausage and cheddar cheese scraps, and make these sausage and cheddar biscuits. I found the recipe on King Arthur Flour’s website and decided to give it a try. The…
