My friend Stephanie over at https://unfoldinglovelyeats.com/ is always on a food adventure of some sort and inspired me to try paratha, a layered Indian flatbread. You can find the original recipe I used  here: https://thegardeningfoodie.com/layered-flatbread/ and see my original flatbread post here: Layered Indian Flatbread (Paratha) This was super with […]

Layered Flatbread

Layered Indian Flatbread (Paratha)

Paratha, or a layered Indian flatbread. I was inspired by my beautiful friend Stephanie over at https://unfoldinglovelyeats.com/ to try a layered Indian flatbread. Since I’ve never actually had it before, I’m not sure what it’s supposed to be like, but I liked it. (You can find the original recipe here: […]

Quick Scalloped Potatoes – Pressure Cooker Style

30 minutes from “chicken in the freezer” and potatoes in the bag, to chicken, scalloped potatoes, and Brussels sprouts on the table!      I got a hankering for scalloped potatoes. Well, I was hoping to cook them sliced, in sauce, in the IP – pot in pot — but […]

Orange-Cinnamon Danish Rolls

We like the Pillsbury “whomp biscuits” version of Orange Danish Rolls. Yep, the store-bought, heaven-knows-what’s-in-them version. That little can is a special treat.

Sourdough English Muffins

Sourdough English Muffins

I’ve gotten on a sourdough English muffins kick. Do you ever do that? Make the same thing for while? Maybe it’s just me….I guess in the stress of the quarantine/pandemic/life in general, I find the whole process therapeutic and satisfying. So, friends and neighbors have gotten the overflow from this […]

Mom’s Brownies

We’re all in quarantine-baking mode out our way. My niece made some AMAZING cupcakes (she really should be a pro baker) and we couldn’t have any (social distancing, and five-hour drive LOL), so we had to at least bake some brownies over here. Some of us like nuts, and some […]

Kids at Home? Everyday Activities to Reinforce Math Skills

With the recent school closings, many parents are scrambling for some at-home activities to continue kids’ school learning. It’s okay to let your kids simply read, or learn about something they want to learn about, or work on a hobby. But if you’d feel more comfortable focusing on some core […]
