Those look amazing!

Hasselback Potato Gratin

These are absolutely amazing! Couldn't find the Gruyère so I opted for Raclette which worked very nicely. Next time, I think I will add thinkly sliced onions in the mix. Thank you!

Tired of the Same Old Side Dishes....

@gore-may...not to worry...I don't, and won't, do any of the things that you warned against...EVER! These kidlets are much more adventurous with food than I ever was, or will ever be! Heck, I'm lucky that I let my food touch! =) I really appreciate your words of wisdom. As these are not my biological kidlets...I've been doing a whole lot of learning lately!

Tired of the Same Old Side Dishes....

Wow! Thank you all so much for your creative suggestions! I'm overwhelmed with your suggestions! Thank you, again.

Tired of the Same Old Side Dishes....

Thanks. Fortunately, these kidlets will, pretty much eat anything. I just feel stalled..

Livonia, Michigan: Great Detroit-Style Pizza at Buddy's me some Buddy' time you should try Alibi Inn in Troy on Rochester Road. Round pizza with little pepperoni rafts of grease! To die for!

Hazel Park, Michigan: A Taste of Detroit at Loui's

Makes me miss downstate pizza...nothing like Buddy's, Loui's or Alibi Inn...*sigh*

What childhood food do you wish they still made?

Ooohhh..and Towne Club soda stores. We would go there as a family, once a month. My brother and I would get to pick any flavors we wanted, and load them in to the provided wood crates. My favorite was always the creme soda in a clear bottle with light blue top. I know they still make it, but it comes in a plastic bottle...which completely ruins it for me. =)

What childhood food do you wish they still made?

Burger Chef...only because you could add your own condiments to your burgers. Mine usually ended up 90% pickles...

Every Kitchen Should have one -Kitchen tools we can't be without

Chick-fil-A's Spicy Chicken Sandwich

This isn't fair. There aren't any in Michigan....well, there's one, but it's 300 miles from where I live. Wonder how the chicken sammiches freeze...

National Lasagna Day

Not sure which is weirder...the fact that there is a National Lasagna Day? Or the fact that I got *really* excited about it!? :)

Fresh Basil

Yum! Thanks everyone!

Fresh Basil

Doesn't get much better than a Caprese salad! =)

The fried basil sounds wonderful, as well! Can't wait to try it. Thanks for the creative idea.

Any tips on how to dry the basil?

@Nichole - sending hubby out for some Jack right now! LOL Sounds delicious!

Fresh Basil

Thanks for the tips! Looks like I have Basil Pesto in my future!

Paska Recipe for Bread Maker

Does anyone have a recipe for Paska that has been modified for baking in a bread machine? I had one, but can't find it. I checked the internet, but can only seem to find ones where the dough is mixed in the machine but then baked in an oven. I'm too lazy for multiple steps like that. :)

Tired of the Same Old Side Dishes....

I am getting tired of preparing the same old beans, corn and broccoli prepared a million different ways. Looking for new suggestions. Cooking for a 13 year old and two 10 year olds. Any recommendations are greatly appreciated!

Crab Legs....

Good morning! I'd like to surprise the man and his kidlets with a crab leg dinner tonight. I don't eat seafood, so I have absolutely no clue as to how to prepare them! I'm guessing boiled...And, I have no clue as to how many pounds to get! Any tips or tricks are appreciated!

Fresh Basil


I am new to gardening and have, rather successfully, grown copious amounts of basil. I'm at a loss as to what to do with it - outside of using it for immediate cooking. Any recommendations are sincerely appreciated.


What to do with 2" boneless Pork Loin Chops?

I have 15 pounds of these delicious loin chops and am looking for suggestions on how to prepare them. I'm a little overwhelmed at the thickness...I've never cooked anything thicker than a 1" chop...

Thank you in advance for your recommendations.
