Peach Streusel Muffins

I had planned on making a nice yeast-based feta pull apart bread for months now, but time just got the best of me – however, since I love World Bread Day so much, I didn’t want to miss out this year. So my contribution? A quick bread, specifically some Peach Streusel Muffins I made last […]


The discovery of this recipe came about near the end of the summer, when I had a ton of produce and cream in my fridge to use up – not only did it nearly use everything that I needed to use, but it tasted pretty amazing as well. It’s not pretty to look at, but […]

Chicken Tetrazzini

I’m almost embarrased to say that in my 36 years on earth, I’ve never once had Chicken Tetrazzini. I wasn’t even sure what it was, thinking it was an Italian dish that had something to do with noodles. Imagine my surprise when I found out it was an American dish – according to Wikipedia, “The […]

Tater Tot Casserole

Sometimes tasty isn’t pretty. I’ve been trying to cook frugally lately, using ingredients that I already have on hand or ingredients that are carried at discount grocery stores like Aldi. At least until the end of the year, things are going to be a little tight here at Casa Boyer. I first had this dish […]

Banana Pudding

For this week’s edition of Kids Cooking Thursday, I chose a recipe that I’ve loved since I was a kid – this particular recipe is easy enough for kids to prepare, but I think I’ve lost my tolerance for very sweet food – one serving of this nearly sent me into sugar shock. The flavor […]

Greek Lamb Burgers

There’s a new blogging event called Regional Recipes, hosted over at Blazing Hot Wok, that celebrates food from all over the world – each month a new region is selected – this month the region is Greece and the recipes are supposed to reflect that theme. I chose to highlight a Greek lamb burger that […]

The World’s Biggest Potluck?

Not quite. But not for lack of a valiant attempt by a couple hundred people who made 379 different dishes. Definitely short of of the 602 needed to beat the record, but an impressive spread nonetheless. I mean, when is the last time you went to a potluck that had almost 400 different dishes? The […]

Corned Beef Hash

Another oldie but goodie drug out from the archives for What’s Cooking Wednesday. Wow. I made this back in – March, I think. But the weather is getting right for such a thing. I don’t know about you all – but when I make corned beef, I always have leftovers. Always. One of my favorite […]

Italian Frangipane Plum Tart

I think late summer/early fall is truly the best time ever for baking, because you can get virtually any fruit or veggie available, with the exception of some early summer berries. But there are apples, pears, peaches, winter squash, just to name the few. And then there’s one of my personal favorites – Italian plums. […]
