Indoor S'mores

This has been one of the rainiest June’s I can remember, at least in my area.  I think we swapped climates with Seattle. When summer comes I crave s’mores, but how do you make a decent s’more when the rain doesn’t let up long enough to build a fire?  Friday night seemed like a good time to try.  The sun had made an appearance that day, and it seemed like we might get a few more hours reprieve from all the precipitation.  No sooner did we have the fire blazing away in our fire pit than it started to rain … Continue Reading →

Lemon Basil Marinade

I’m slacking again with updating this site. I was hoping to get at least one more recipe in before my recent trip to Walt Disney World, but time got away from me.  I’d like to say it won’t happen again, but it probably will.  I’ve been thinking up some new ideas for this site, though.  I might start including some non-recipe (but still food related) posts.  They’d focus on techniques I use in the kitchen, some of my most used gadgets, and things of that nature.  I’d also like to start featuring some “guest” recipes, but more on that later. … Continue Reading →

Tangy Turkey Burgers

I used to live off turkey burgers when I was a bit more health-conscious. Ah, the good old days! Haha! I do still try to eat healthy, but I’m just not as disciplined as I once was. I still love this recipe, though. It isn’t really a substitute when you’re craving beef. It’s more special than that. This is a burger you’ll crave for it’s own unique flavor. I got the original recipe from a collection of recipe cards I have called Healthy Meals in Minutes. They suggest forming 6 patties, but if you prefer a thicker burger make 4 … Continue Reading →

Grilled Salmon with Orange Glaze

This recipe is based on an old newspaper clipping I’ve had for years. I can’t remember which newspaper it was from, but if I had to guess I’d say the Lowell Sun. This recipe is incredibly easy to prepare, and it tastes better than anything you’d get in a restaurant. Print Grilled Salmon with Orange Glaze Prep Time: 5 minutesCook Time: 10 minutesTotal Time: 15 minutes Yield: 2 servings Ingredients1/2 cup orange marmalade 2 teaspoons sesame oil 2 teaspoons soy sauce 1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger root, grated 1 clove garlic 3 tablespoons white rice vinegar 1 pound boneless salmon fillet, … Continue Reading →

Grill-Roasted Butternut Squash

You don’t have to wait till fall to enjoy roasted vegetables. Sure, when it’s 90° outside and 80% humidity, no one wants to run their oven. Well, if you have a heavy, flame-proof baking dish, you can roast your veggies on the grill. I considered using maple syrup in lieu of the brown sugar, which I still think would be amazing. Most people already have brown sugar in their pantry, and it’s much cheaper than maple syrup, so that tilted the scales. If you feel like splurging, give it a try. You can probably skip the 2 tablespoons of water … Continue Reading →
