Peppery Brisket (URS: Easter Dinner)

URS1

Holiday dinners are such a fun tradition in the life of our family. My own mother made a big to-do out of Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. While we didn’t have much extended family who lived nearby, the second cousins once removed and all their kin that did were always included in the festivities. Sometimes Mom […]

spunky-sprout2

Update, 1/13/09: This giveaway is now closed. Winner to be announced Wednesday morning. Thanks for playing. Last week a friend sent us the most adorable outfit for the FishBaby: cute frilly jeans and a pink, long sleeved onesie, both with precious embroidery. So cute! I know she’ll probably only get to wear it for a […]

California Chicken Gumbo for a Mob

Chicken Gumbo

Now, I didn’t really name this recipe, though I certainly could have. I know all about cooking for a mob in California. This recipe is actually adapted from A Feast of Soups, one of my very favorite cookbooks. If your family enjoys soups, then it is worth it to hunt down a copy of this […]

Roast Turkey with Herbed Stuffing and Pan Gravy

So this week’s shopping list includes cream cheese for Janel’s Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes and a vat of oil for those […]

Sauerkraut and Spareribs (Recipe Swap: What’s in Your Crockpot?)

sauerkraut

One thing that’s true about the approach of fall is that the days get busy. And dinner is the last thing you want to think about in between carpools, homework, and soccer practice. That is where one of my best friends can save the day. Remember the handy dandy crockpot? Well, bust it out, ladies, […]

Grocery Geek Presents: The Fifty Cents or Free Rule

2008-June-008

It used to be that breakfast cereal was a rare commodity at the FishFam Table. Except for a brief obsession with organic cereal (which was not wise for my budget at the time), I limited it to a couple boxes of generic chex or cheerios, at about $1.50 – $2 a box. However, since I […]
