When my DH presented me (as in gifted me) a KA recently, I decided I would need to give it a name in true AR fashion. I told him I was trying to come up with one, when, because it is gun-metal grey, he suggested we call her The Iron Lady (because of the Meryl Streep film of the same name).… MORE

I had always thought there could not be hummus without tahini; but becauseof the sesame allergy I had to look for something that would serve as a tahini stand-in. On the AllRecipes site I found Creamy Yogurt Hummus that made hummus using garbanzo beans, lemon juice and yogurt. I mixed some up,… MORE

Grill Date: 6/3/2011 9:05 AM  I.C.E. = In Case of Emergency  It's been four days since our grill purchase...an "intro level" gas grill by Weber. We decided on gas because I was more likely to be the one grilling, and though during the recent five day power outage I did finally resort to… MORE

This will mostly be in photos with captions, because I find formatting such a formidable task.The final photo is our current kitchen...and we… MORE

She told me, "Mama, you can't use spring onions in place of chives. You need to get chives. They make the dish." Her husband concurred, as I assured them both that I would comply, and I said, "'Chives' is what I need, 'chives' is what I'll get." And I intended to, too. But… MORE

The AR adventures I have enjoyed in the past year have included, but not been limited to... the brief reappearance of Sunnybyrd, the return of Petey (the wonder blogger), the start of the regular Swiss missives, peeks into the workings of a Kiwi Cafe, cooking over the shoulder of a hou MORE

Back in the 80's George Lucas did a commercial spot on Japanese television in which he said simply "itsumo something new"...which means "always something new." Well that's what it has been like living in Japan. If we have not seen something new on going out the door, by th MORE

Update; just in:  Another idea for holiday gifting would be to make several batches of varied cookies, print the recipes or combine in a booklet, and give a sample tin of the various cookies along with the booklet of recipes. To make it extra festive include a "cookies in a jar" reci MORE

Seven months ahead of the stock market crash of 1929, my grandparents and many Americans associated a phrase in one of Herbert Hoover's 1928 campaign of prosperity ads, "a chicken in every pot and a car in every backyard to boot." as a sign of a progressively upward trend for the eco MORE

About Me
Cooking for two, usually...sometimes for four. An email addy is: hezzy_tant_cook@yahoo.com Though, this is not accessed daily.
My favorite things to cook
Breads are simply amazing, don't you think? Anyway, Atkins and I could never have gotten on well. // Update. Still think breads are amazing, but am trying to avoid the less complex ones for a time.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving meals are the best. Food and family/friends...what could be better than that?
My cooking triumphs
I like precision cooking, as far as ingredients goes. That can be a problem, though, when suddenly you need to set another plate. // Update. Still like precision purchases, but am trying to accommodate for "walk-ins".
My cooking tragedies
1.Have you ever put macaroni into a slow cooker soup and let it cook until it becomes mush? Don't. 2.Baked b'day cake for MIL's first visit, and it fell apart. FIL, man of few words, generally, responsed to my embarrassed apologies, "It's been my experience that the worse they look, the better they taste." And he just about ate himself sick to prove his point!
