Recipe Post: Batch Cooking Baked 5-Cheese Macaroni and Cheese

Muh gud, I lurves me some cheese. Can’t stay away from the stuff, which my hips and digestive system *really* appreciate, as you can imagine. Until I start experimenting with more nut cheeses (which I have already resolved to do this year, and I promise to write about my misadventures regarding THAT, you can be…

Recipe Post: Spaghetti with Roasted Grape Tomatoes and Basil

I’ll admit, this spaghetti recipe is usually my go-to in the late summer months, when fresh basil and tomatoes are at their peak of local freshness, and I don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen cooking dinner. But I’ll bet it’s good anytime, especially when it’s cold and drizzly and you…

Recipe Post: Freezer Batch Lasagna

There are few meals I love better than lasagna. I’m not Italian, but it was always a featured, special meal for our family at least a few times a year, and ALWAYS the main course on Christmas Eve. In the last 20 years, I must have made dozens of lasagnas, both meat- and veggie-based, and…

Recipe Post: The Most Delicious Spaghetti Sauce Ever

I was recently typing up a new blog post about our Freezer Meal Lasagnas that We Three Amigos made in September for our deep freezes, and tried to link my recipe for awesome spaghetti sauce to the post…when I couldn’t find it. I could hardly believe it; I haven’t yet posted a recipe on my…

Recipe Review: Alton Brown Baked Macaroni and Cheese

I am trying something new here, where I write about the occasional recipes I have made as-is (I’m a pathological recipe-changer, so this is rare), and give my review and what I would do to change it, if anything. To launch this inaugural effort, I have written about two of my favourite things:…

Recipe Post: Spinach Cheese Manicotti

This was one of our easiest (and most fun) recipes for our freezer meals to put together! These are so tasty, my advice is to make A LOT OF THEM and freeze them on a baking sheet separately without the sauce, then pop them into large freezer bags. That way you’ll be able to take…

Recipe Post: Spice Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

It was Miss Kitty’s birthday recently, and she asked me to make a cake for her birthday party, which was a Pathfinder party at our place, hosted by my hubby (her request, I swear!). We started a new campaign and brought some new friends to be part of our RPG-of-awesomeness, and a great time was…

Recipe Post: Shepherd’s Pie Extraordinaire!

Since I’m up visiting family, I’ve been indulging my inner gourmet chef (and who wouldn’t, with such a lovely kitchen to work in, compared to my little kitchen closet at home!). It’s only Wednesday, and I’ve already made some very yummy foods. Earlier this week I made a version of Martha Stewart’s Perfect Macaroni and…
