Spaetzle cooking fun and new food tips

Posted by on May 8, 2014 in Blog Posts |

photo from and recipe for dill spaetzle Last night red cabbage and maple-dijon glazed pork were on my meal plan, but what to cook with it? I’d made potatoes already twice this week, and didn’t want noodles… Spaetzle! I’d had home made only once about 20 years ago, thought it looked complex, heck there are even special gadgets to make them! I looked up the recipe in Joy of Cooking, glanced at a few online resources and thought it looked like fun. This...

Heavy-duty foil saves clean-up time, and green bean recipe!

Posted by on Jun 4, 2013 in Blog Posts | 5 comments

I finally made green beans a different way than the usual standby of simmering in broth with a little butter and salt. Husband and I used to eat green beans like this often, but they can be stringy, so when I started cooking and considering the oral skills of a little one, I switched to the softer boiled/steamed beans and kind of got stuck— but stuck in a good way since we all loved them anyway.

Posted by on Mar 6, 2013 in Blog Posts |

Yesterday was a snow day for most of Minnesota, except for St Paul and Minneapolis. We had 6-8 inches of snow, and I was thankful again that we live within walking distance of school! Snow in March is okay, snow in April is a bummer, so I was ready for another way to celebrate and enjoy the snow. Luckily, a friend posted this fun video on facebook about how to make ice-cream from snow; so on the way to get M, I walked to the corner market and bought some half and half, and the strawberries...

Happy New Year: Resolutions?

Posted by on Jan 1, 2013 in Blog Posts | 6 comments

Last night M wanted a “buffet” to celebrate the end of 2012. I asked what she meant, “You know, little bowls with the food in it.” Since we serve family-style, this is pretty much what we do every night, so I asked her to elaborate. “You know, where you stand up and get lots of little things and then eat somewhere else.” I suggested lots of little, easy things, but she begged for Turkey Curry. I decided to let her run the menu (I added the scallops) and here...
