Pumpkin Mashed Potatoes Recipe

pumpkin-mashed-potatoes-recipe-featured-9677

I don’t cook with canned pumpkin nearly enough, it seems most cooks only use it for making pumpkin pie, but since I’m not a pumpkin-pie-kinda-gal (not everyone is, right?) the canned pumpkin rarely ever makes it into my cart. Well, 2 weeks ago, it finally did. I dared myself to make something with it – and if you can just …

My hens are teenagers

chickens-growing-up-9751.jpg

This summer, our little itty bitty baby chicks that arrived in April began laying eggs. It usually takes about 6 months before chickadees develop into egg-layers, and like an impatient mother, I kept looking in the coop twice a day to check if my babies were growing right. Well, grow they did! And fast, too – these kids spend most …

This is one of my go-to dishes when I’ve run out of time, have barely any fresh ingredients in the house and in need of a spicy fix. Thai curry only takes 15 minutes to make, from start to finish, including the rice if you use my microwave method. The recipe is crazy flexible – use whatever seafood you’d like …

Miso Butter Shrimp Recipe

Miso-Butter-Shrimp-Recipe-featured-9480

When shrimp goes on sale, I always snag a bag or two of frozen shrimp. There’s no use getting the defrosted shrimp behind the glass partition, that shrimp was just the same frozen shrimp, but defrosted. I figure, the less hands that have touched my shrimp, the better. Despite being a mother of 2 boys and having an immune system …

Halloween Skull Cake

skull-cake-9126.jpg

My good friend and long-distance assistant, Julie from The Little Kitchen, came over a few weeks ago for a visit. I’m not a very good baker, thus the lack of fancy cakes and sweets on this blog. But Julie is. So I roped her into helping me bake a Halloween themed cake using a skull pan from Wilton. Nathan wanted …
