It's been a while, and there have been a lot of changes in The Kitchen. The Baby is now 5, and not The Baby anymore. But there is a new baby. She's to blame for the lack of activity over the past couple of years. We REALLY wanted to write - but there was no sleep to be had!
Now The Kid and The Baby are a little older, and The Wife and I are still cooking. So watch this space - new recipes and restaurants are coming soon!
I'd seen recipes and pictures for something like this floating around the Internet for some time now.
I'm always intrigued by these substitute recipes - especially when they're healthier or sub in a vegetable. I especially like these kinds of recipes during Lent; when, for the past two years I've given up meat and bread.
Such was the case today when a Food and Wine email graced my inbox with a link to a salad dressing slide show where I found this recipe.
This is a great recipe from Bon Appétit - super easy and fast, yet it tastes, looks and smells fancy! Definitely a winner in my book.

Anyways, I am making an effort to make dessert more than just when we have company. I had some blueberries on hand that I wanted to use up and so I did a little Pinterest search. I came across this recipe from Hot Polka Dot which I adapted slightly.
Every Day with Rachel Ray, I tore it out immediately knowing this would be an instant winner with the Husband. He loves all things soup/stew and throw in some greens? Well, you've got one happy man.
The Husband asked me to make some bread awhile back to go with a soup he was fixing for dinner that evening. Uh, no. That was my initial reaction. It was already late afternoon and I definitely didn't have a few hours (nor desire!) to devote to some bread. His response? To send me a few recipes for "quick breads". I was skeptical but decided to give this recipe from Thirty Handmade Days a try.
I had bought a thing of cashews recently to make this Layered Thai Chicken Dip and had a good amount leftover. So when trying to decide dinner the other night, I instantly thought Cashew Chicken. Now only to find a good recipe, one that preferably didn't include ketchup as an ingredient and one that didn't include frying. I ended up slightly adapting one that I found over at Brown Eyed Baker.
