In Recipe Swap 1406629157.707

I'm bumping this recipe up. We had this with our dinner last night, and it was very tasty! I served it with a ham slice and sautéed cherry tomatoes. The mild pineapple flavor of the rice went well with the ham. I used half an onion and one red pepper - I dropped the orange pepper to save money. Half a green pepper would also work. The turmeric gives nice color and flavor. So quick and easy to make. This recipe is a keeper. Continue Reading


Re: Bran Muffin Question

In Kitchen & Food Talk 1406621552.88

Actually, 1/4 cup of oil is not a lot for a recipe that makes 12 muffins. I would go back to using that amount. Some of my muffin recipes call for 1/2 cup of oil or butter. If you use less than 1/4 cup you risk having dry or tough muffins. Applesauce is a good substitute for oil. Here is another idea. It's the original bran muffin recipe from the Kellogg's All Bran box. I made this all the years my kids were growing up, and they loved these muffins. Bran Muffins - Original recipe from All Bran Cereal Box Preheat oven to 400º. (*If your muffin pan is dark, use 375 degrees and bake muffin... Continue Reading

Re: Do you go to restaurants alone?

In Kitchen & Food Talk 1406546969.13

I do, when DH is out of town. It doesn't bother me to eat alone. I usually choose a sandwich shop/bakery or someplace casual (La Madeleine, etc.) DH and I love IHOP. It's great place to go late at night, when other places are closed. We have another 24 restaurant, Steak n Shake, that we also like. We like to have a sandwich or burger after a movie. No crowds! We've also gone there after a New Year's Eve party. Continue Reading

Re: Do you buy the same type of clothes over and over again?

In Fashion Talk 1406545250.547

I have some favorite styles that I buy over and over, because I love them and they're flattering to my figure. I also have favorite colors that I know I'll look my best in. It's a pretty broad range. I don't see this as dull. It's just that I've learned from experience and apply this knowledge. I actually think I have a varied wardrobe. But I remember the mistakes and try not to repeat them.

Re: Do you make more elaborate dinners on Sundays?

In Kitchen & Food Talk 1406397607.133

When the kids were growing up, we often had big Sunday dinners. It was more of an evening meal. These days I usually make soup on Sunday, a big pot. We have it for dinner, with hot bread and/or salad. I freeze the leftovers if the soup is freezable - most are. I love to try new soup recipes. Then we watch Masterpiece Theater. Continue Reading
