Ham & Cheese Filled Crêpe with an Egg Top HatThis is a fun little breakfast or supper dish.  I got this from the folks over at Serious Eats.  Those people are geniuses.  This is a slightly different way of folding the crêpe than we normally see.  But, delicious these are. Continue reading

Chicken Enchilada Crêpes with Cilantro-Lime Cream SauceThis is a savory option for our crêpes.  It’s pretty much a chicken enchilada, but with crêpes, duh.  The sauce is lovely and loaded with flavor.  Even though it has heavy cream, using broth lightens the sauce.  Continue reading

Crêpes with Ricotta-Mascarpone Filling & StrawberriesIt’s almost strawberry season.  I’m impatient.  So, I purchase supermarket strawberries, just to get myself in the mood.  They are almost always a disappointment, but oddly enough, even those work reasonably well with this lovely springtime dessert.

Meatloaf RomanaI forget about meatloaf and I don’t know why.  We love it.  It’s goes together quickly.  It practically bakes itself and damn, it’s just so delicious.  And best of all, it makes great sandwiches.  I’ve already given you Roadhouse Meatloaf, but you should have this one, too.  Continue reading

Cheeseburger & "Fries" CasseroleWho doesn’t love a good cheeseburger?  And nice, crispy fries?  So, The Goddess was thinking this might just work in a casserole.  You know how she’s into these one-dish or skillet dinners.  Many time when she thinks something will work, it doesn’t work as well as it does in her mind’s-eye.  But, this turned out to be incredibly, almost indecently, tasty.    Continue reading

Parsnip PancakesParsnips are one of the things I always look forward to when autumn rolls around.  Beef Barley Soup just isn’t as good without a parsnip.  Neither is a good beef stew.  I know it’s spring and it’s the end of the parsnip season, but think of these little discs of goodness as the last parsnip hurrah!  Continue reading
