Best Ever Cranberry Relish

Cranberry sauce is a disgusting glob of gelatinous goop that comes out of a can.  Cranberry relish is a nutritious salad-like condiment that is made with the goodness of the whole cranberry.  It’s only draw back is it does have a healthy dose of sugar in it, but since it is only usually eaten during the holidays it’s […]

Batchelor Bites – Personal Meat Loafs

Cook ahead and have your own meat loaf whenever you want.  As a single guy who likes to cook for himself and have food ready for a few days in advance I have learned a trick or two (this one thanks to Rachel Ray’s magazine in a doctor office waiting room). Make your favorite meat […]

F.R.O.G. Jam – It’s Delicious

First thing’s first, there are NO frogs in this Jam… It stands for Figs, Raspberries, Oranges, and Ginger… and it is a wickedly good combination.  The colors often vary and it has a texture kinda like berry preserve and marmalade. Sometimes I like to add a small squirt of green food coloring just to make things interesting. I […]

Chicken and Dumpling Casserole

There’s nothing more stick to your ribs than chicken and dumplings.  This recipe can be made with a rotisserie chicken purchased at almost any grocery store for a very reasonable price.  If you play your cards right you can often make several tasty meals out of one rotisserie chicken. I find the best rotisserie chickens to be […]

Summer Vegetable Soup

Nothing is healthier for lunch than a good bowl of soup.  I made this to bring to work today for lunch.  It’s excellent pared with my Chicken Salad on Deli thins for bread.  Soup is something that has a high water content and is easily digestible.  It can be eaten year round and there are […]

Good Chicken Salad

Let’s face it, a good chicken salad on a croissant is a taste of the divine.  I like to keep a tub of Chicken or Ham Salad on hand for the days I don’t feel like cooking which happens about every third day in rotation.  Chicken salad is an American tradition and there are many […]

Birthday Was Wonderful! So was Father’s Day

I had a wonderful lunch at the Queen of Sheba with my Mother.  They are an African restaurant that serves authentic Ethiopian food. The food there is very healthy consisting of very lean meats and highly spiced and fragrant vegetables served on a plate that is covered with Injara bread that becomes your fork, if […]

Loving my new job… tomorrow is my Birthday… sigh

I am off weekends now… sooner or later this mess of a house will get cleaned.  Well maybe later than sooner.  I’ve been conquering the mountain of dirty laundry… trying to figure out what’s in fridge that died… and keep the three kitty monsters happy.   Anyhow… tomorrow is my Birthday.  Usually I don’t look […]

Mr. Goodbar – not so good anymore!!!

I’m about ready to go off… you just can’t get good chocolate anymore and now the latest victim of the economy is the once high quality Hershey’s Chocolate. My favorite candy bar -was- the Hershey’s Mr. Goodbar. It was simple… salted peanuts and high quality Hershey’s milk chocolate. That was before Christmas when I got […]
