Here is an easy and cheap dinner that can be passed off as more. It certainly stands up to a Sunday dinner, serve it with mashed potatoes or rice to sop up the sauce! I admit this is not my prettiest picture, and certainly does not qualify as food porn – however the dish itself […]

Oh Mama are these good. For years I was known for my oatmeal chocolate chip cookies… of course no one knew that the reason I made them was because I couldn’t ever get regular chocolate chip cookies to work. They all seemed to turn out like hard little pancakes. That was of course until I […]

I can’t take credit for this, cause I enjoyed this dinner from the couch. In fact I think it was even delivered to my lap by my fabulous boyfriend who was responsible. He got the idea from a loose meat sandwich he had for lunch years ago and this is his replication of that flavour. […]
