It is 7pm, and snow softly falls from the long-darkened Alaskan sky, dancing through the porch light to land on the deck where I am hard at work evicting it. Down a flight of stairs, Lee ducks and weaves through snow-capped cars, waging epic snow wars against his littlest nephew and the two… MORE

I made these raspberry waffles for breakfast a few days ago. Gluten free bisquick is amazing.

My cooking triumphs
Not two feet in the front door after the week's shopping trip, my fiance looks at me of a sudden and says, "I want garlic bread. Can you make garlic bread?" Can I make garlic bread? Of course I can. In a spark of what I thought at the time was madness, I melted butter and grated garlic onto whole grain rice hamburger buns and threw them under the broiler- not expecting them to turn out but at least appease the other half, and wouldn't you know... they were great!
My cooking tragedies
Made an entire pot of spaghetti sauce using my aunt-in-law's delicious recipe, did not realize until after it was finished that I had accidentally used Jalapeno Olives. I don't know why they even make such an abomination, but it ruined my spaghetti sauce.

Garlic Roasted Chicken and Potatoes
This was pretty tasty- I followed the recipe pretty closely just added a few extra veggies and some herbs. It smoked up my house pretty bad, but I can live with that. It's four stars only because it was kind of greasy- a little too greasy for my taste. Too much butter I think.

Barbecue Ribs
Mmm, the marinade is going to be my go-to recipe for BBQ sauce now. These were seriously good. The kitchen smelled like a distillery afterward but the rum was not overpowering, just added a really lovely flavor. I don't like spice so I totally left out the chile sauce and we cut the sugar because I don't usually care for tooth-achingly sweet bbq. It was so yummy!!

Chicken Tortilla Soup V
Oh YUM! I followed the more precise instructions from reviewer NMR and this turned out great. Had to sub gouda for the jack cheese cause that's what I had, but it was still pitch perfect. I also roasted a habanero pepper and chopped it up to put in my sweetie's serving, as he likes things very spicy. Yum!
