A Cornucopia of Goodness: Author & #Alaska News & a Wine Soaked #Recipe

Posted by on Dec 20, 2014 in Alaska Living, Books, Cabin Cooking, Dessert, Vegan, Vegetarian | 1 comment

bah-humbugI am taking a bit of a break, if you noticed. It is the holidays after all and for me this means huge bouts of depression and missing my family. Home maybe where the heart is and at this time of year, my heart is down in the lower -48 with my parents and kids. Geoff feels ambivalent towards this time of year, as do many. I struggle with my inner Grinch hourly. It is hard to be on Facebook and Twitter and even more so, this is the time I love to cook but we cannot right now so reading all the recipes is KILLING me, but it won’t stop me from sharing one with you.

black-duckyWhat to say…. Seriously, after I read this I read what I reviewed yesterday, so I am sitting here trying to switch gears, for this book is nothing close to yesterdays. It is 700 pages of .. just lots of feelings and emotions. It didn’t blow my mind, but it surprised the hell out of me in ways I .. just wanted to smack people around, and myself for doubting it .

The Source (book 2 of @TheLineSavannah ) by J.D. Horn & My Healthy Chocolate Balls #RAW #Recipe

Yep, it is a theme apparently this week. Great Balls of Fire yesterday and today the best chocolate ball recipe ever! OK I have a few of those but right now because I am attempting to eat healthier I am adjusting a few of them with ones which are also pretty healthy. Much like a good book is. Healthy gut and a healthy brain, two of the most important things.

What to do with that left over spaghetti sauce – Budget #Cooking

Posted by on Aug 5, 2014 in Cabin Cooking, Featured Posts, Vegetarian | 0 comments

cooking-on-a-budgetAs many of you know I am a chili aficionado. I make some kick ass chili both with and without meat. Last week I posted a vegetarian chili recipe which I slow cook and I have also posted my full meat infused slow cooker chili which my kids beg me to make every time we get together. When I made chili for them it had to be made in our Nesco slow cooker, all 18 quarts of it. Those are a kitchens best friend especially when you feed big groups of folks. You can have your oven ready and cook in the roaster. I managed to trick my ex into getting one to roast my turkey in when I noted that I could make 18  quarts of chili all at once (never before had I seen the credit card be whipped out as fast as it did that day).

Brussel Sprouts Gone Wild! Brown Butter & Mustard Braised #foodporn

Posted by on Jun 14, 2014 in Cabin Cooking, DIY Basic Recipes, Featured Posts, Vegetarian | 3 comments

brussel-sprouts-gone-wildFirst of all………….. browned butter where have you been all my life. Holy hell! How Sweet It Is has been gushing about it for a few years and I never have tried it officially. Officially because I usually caramelize my onions in olive oil but when I do it the way I was raised, I do it with butter and apparently I brown my butter ahead of time, who knew! My father and grandmother never eat anything but, so I grew up using real butter. Now I keep some on hand all the time and I have Irish Butter frozen in table spoons and use that to make certain things Geoff likes with a lot of butter in them, what a treat.
