Cooking with Apples

Thursday, March 3rd, 2011

I had a bag of apples from Mercier Orchard that needed to be used so I decided to incorporate them in my cooking one night last week. Normally Caleb eats all the apples before I have a chance to use them for cooking. However, since he was recovering from having his wisdom teeth out he was unable to eat all the apples and they were at risk of rotting.  I made Apple Stuffed Cornish Hens, with cornbread dressing and dirty mashed potatoes. The recipes I created can be found below. (more…)

Glazed Pork Chops

Friday, February 11th, 2011

Recently I decided to try a new recipe. I made orange glazed pork chops with rice and sauteed spinach with berries. I found a basic recipe but made  several changes to it because I did not have all of the ingredients that the recipe called for. I also thought the the recipe I found was lacking flare. David helped prepare this meal. He often helps in the kitchen, but it was fun making something together that we had never made before. (more…)

Taste of Canton

The event was hosted at the Canton Main Street Park. There were about 20 vendors from local restaurants that had samples of their tasty cuisine. For $10 all three of us ate until we were stuffed and even had tickets left over. (more…)

Cooking Marathon

Sunday, July 18th, 2010

I had a big shopping trip this week. My total was $375 before coupons and BOGO.  After coupons and BOGO I paid $236. This total is a lot more than I normally pay, but I had a cooking marathon this weekend. Many items I purchased this week were not on sale and were purchased without the use of coupons. With the groceries purchased we made 18 casseroles, 2 loafs of bread, and restocked many items for the pantry and freezer. (more…)
