What? 4 Desserts per meal is wrong?

This weekend was Labor Day and this year, we went to the beach and then had some families over for some grilling and hanging out.  The beach did not go quite as intended (Sand fleas and rain?  Really?  Still fun though.), but the grilling was nice.  However, I did get mocked for having 4 desserts with only 1 main course, but it was 1 dessert per family… That’s sane, right?  We made asian-ish steak tip/kebabs (others provided yummy sausages and zucchini and fruit salad), and then had berry fool, strawberry citrus ginger sorbet, key lime popsicles, and blubbery crumble with vanilla ice cream for dessert.  Recipes below!

Ginger doughnuts!

I love ginger. Love love love it. I also love doughnuts. Together? One of the greatest thing ever. I’ve made this a bunch and I love them every time. They were also a big hit with my son’s preschool class. Don’t be intimidated by the recipe, it’s easier than it seems!

I got a new cookbook (magazine)… or Blueberry Cobbler with Ginger Biscuits

I’ve made this twice to rave reviews both times, both times with kiddos eating it (once with a fairly picky kiddo eating it). Very tasty, very easy!

What to post what to post… Indecisions and pregnancy.

So, most days I say, “I should post to my recipe blog, but what to post?”  And then I get tired or distracted and wander off.  There were several days of, “I keep eating cheese popovers, I should post those… Oh, the recipe is way over there…. Ooo shiny!”  But today, today I crave citrus/strawberry/ginger sorbet, and that recipe is on my computer, so no walking required.  I win!   Continue reading

Pumpkin Muffins and Ginger Frosting

So it’s fall, and Halloween-y, which means time for pumpkin muffins. These things are very tasty and allow me to frost things in a ginger frosting, which makes me happy. Plus they are relatively straight forward. Plus, they allow Xander to help “clean” the beaters afterwards, and that makes him very happy as well.

Trying to drag myself out of pregnancy induced nausea and lack of motivation hell… with soup!

So yeah, I disappeared, hopefully not taking this place down with me.  Minsies tried valiantly to carry on without me, and I salute her for her efforts!  I’ve not been thinking of food, or much of anything besides how soon can I craw into bed and die for a couple months now, because of the new addition to my body.  It’s been unpleasant.  However, we seem to be turning a bend, and with the help of apples (Baby loves some apples.  Feeling sick?  Give the baby an apple and much is better!  It’s obviously a weirdo, but the farmer’s market loves my new apple habit) I can think of food now.  However, I will not be posting apple recipes, baby insists I eat them as fast as they can go into my body, so no cooking there.

Long time, no food.

So the world has impeded my ability to update this blog, and it looks like it’s a sickness that has hit all our writers together.  But I have finally finished teaching, and am back to my 1 job (plus being a mom) and have decided to should post two of my favorite Thai dishes to try to spur others into posting as well!  Both of these involve chicken, though I bet you could substitute some sort of veggie crumble or tofu in the first one.  Second one you are on your own.  I have also made the 2nd without cilantro for one person in particular (who is genetically predisposed to tasting cilantro as soap), and they seemed to think it was good.   I hope some people try these, they seem more complicated than they actually are, and the first comes together really quickly because it involves very little chopping.
