You Know You’ve Landed in Minnesota…

…when this appears in the condiments offerings:




My friend, Richard, is lauded for his nachos. Seriously, these are a work of art and a lovely way to clog your arteries and digestive tract.

Nacho Night is the way to celebrate anything. The most recent being a time with friends and watching the latest Sherlock. Nachos and Benedict Cumberbatch – BLISS! These wonderful things also come out for birthdays, receptions, and any most any reason someone says, “Hey, can we do _____ and eat your nachos?”

Here’s the start:

Assemble all ingredients – ground beef, sausage, blue corn chips, white corn chips, refried beans, taco seasoning, grated cheddar cheese, chopped olives, etc.

Put the first layer of blue corn chips down. Cover with half the beans, meat, shredded cheese, olives, etc. Bake.

Make a second layer of yumminess! Bake.

Frost with sour cream.

Eat. Laugh. Enjoy. Eat some more. Feel your stomach say, “No more! Please!” and your taste buds demanding, “More! More! More!”

Die the sweetest death possible.

Summer Party

Yesterday, I showed some not so tasty pictures. Sorry.

Vegetarians, beware. The next 3 pictures are not for you. However, omnivores and paleo folk will be happy!

It gets better


So, in my moving frenzy, I made a mistake last Sunday – I went to sleep. Here’s how last week shaped up:

Wednesday, August 8: everything from my storage unit was transferred to a truck and moved to my house in Indy.

Friday, August 10: I loaded a bunch of stuff into my RAV4, and my goal for the evening is sorting enough in my bedroom so I could sleep on my bed and see part of the floor.

Sunday, August 12: I pick up my remaining items in Bloomington, along with my fridge and freezer items. I promptly bring everything into the house, however, before I remember to put it in the freezer, I collapse on my bed. Since I haven’t been sleeping well the past week and a half, I was up at 4:30 or 5 AM.

My first thought: “Oh, crap! Freezer!”

Things heat up…

Cake Intermission

Oops, I got my Facebook Migrants out of order. Blast! Anyway, here was Christmas 2009 and New Years 2009/2010. Two years ago already! Dang. Anyway….drool commencing in 3…2….


Christmas and New Years Eve.

Let it snow…or not. I finally got to make these delightful things for Christmas.

More YUM! Ahead


My *one* faithful reader reminded me that there was no gravy recipe with my last post. Sorry, I forget that the gravy recipe is just as important as good biscuits.

The thing about the recipe is that it is more “instructions” rather than amounts.

So, here goes.

Biscuits: The Recipe

My biscuit recipe has been requested per a previous post.

First of all, it’s not my original recipe. It is, however, the standard by which I judge all others. Those biscuits that come from mixes, the freezer, or a can, are too oily and lack the homey and rustic properties of the below. Also, you have to hunt for this recipe as Better Homes & Gardens cookbooks have changed. This is from Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book (c)1965, page 77. Yum.
On to Goodness!

Scone recipes

Part of me wants to be selfish and keep the following recipes (and my tricks) a secret so as to preserve my (imagined) baking prowess. Alas, it’s better for me to share…

Serve to friends over a lovely tea for a delightful afternoon.

Yum, Yum!

Comfort Food: Biscuits and Gravy

While I’m getting the hang of this blogging thing, I decided to use some of my favorites from past Facebook notes. This was originally posted on my Facebook page on January 8, 2010 under the same title. Only minor edits in the text have been applied.


Biscuits and Gravy.

B & G.

Oh. So. Delightful.
Keep reading…and drooling
