I made it!

Ever since I moved to my new apartment, I have cooked more and ordered less. Sorry Seamless, but this is a good change for me.

Recently I tried this recipe for a Mexican casserole from Joanna Goddard’s blog by Jennifer Farley of Savory Simple.

I added ground beef to my version, but it would also be great with pulled chicken or chorizo. It was easy to make and I had meals for days. If one were inclined to make this lower fat or to hide vegetables inside, that would be simple to pull off.

It had been a while since I did much baking so I also made an apple-pear-blueberry crisp from my old standby desserts-only cookbook.

If you have any cook-ahead go-to meals, I’d love to hear about them in the comments.

I am so impressed by entrepreneurs. The courage it must take to strike out on one’s own!

Carol Blymire is one of these brave souls. She has her own business.

Cooking is a drag

I love NYC restaurants. I adore Seamless and Delivery.com. The good food comes right to my door.


But I want to eat healthier and I want to save money. So I pulled a few recipes to try out including this one from Cooking Light.

I think I did everything right.

But I hated it. It was bland other than the overwhelming flavor of onions.

I ordered dinner from Fornino.

The end.

Writing, culture, food

You already know I love food.

I assume you have figured out that I enjoy writing. Doesn’t everyone with a blog?

But culture…I can see how you might have guessed that my only culture was snark. Not true though!
