delicious grEATings by My Utensil Crock

You may have noticed a downtick in recipe posts in the past few months. I’m sorry about that. It wasn’t intentional. But don’t you worry, I have many in the hopper, especially after my productive week on vacation that I am wrapping up as I type. Well this is starting off quite nicely. #michiana #floridakeysmahimahi #beachdays #eeeeeats … [Read more...]

Middle Eastern Bison Pita Sliders

Bison Meatballs-2

This spring has been a busy one, so I am reposting this oldie but goodie from May 2013. I have made some updates, and found additional photos on my computer, so I thought I would share them with you. Enjoy! When I think of meatballs – and believe me, this is not an infrequent occurrence – I usually picture them in marinara sauce, maybe with … [Read more...]

Prosciutto and Brie Cheese Plate Tart by My Utensil Crock

This tart makes me want to throw a cocktail party. And what do you know ... 'Tis the Season! This Prosciutto and Brie "Cheese Board" Tart is just what was missing from your holiday party buffet.

Thanksgiving Leftover Quiche by My Utensil Crock

Would I make an entire Thanksgiving dinner one month before the holiday, just to have the leftovers to make this "All the Good Stuff" Day-After Thanksgiving Leftover Crustless Quiche? Maybe. Oh, did I? Yes I did. Pretty much. Turkey was quite a challenge to find a month before the big day {which I guess makes sense when you think … [Read more...]

Indoor S'Mores for a Group by My Utensil Crock

As summer comes to a close this evening, I would like to pay homage to a favorite taste of summer*: The S'More. * Also fall, and winter. And I have never turned down a Spring S'More. My cousin SFH put the idea for Indoor S'Mores for a Group in my head before her annual July 4 party this year, and it has been looming large since then. She … [Read more...]

Prosciutto, Parmesan, and Arugula Flatbread with Fig Jam Spread by My Utensil Crock

I love looking at Flatbread offerings at restaurants. Far from traditional pizza combinations like pepperoni or spinach, it seems that any three ingredients + a spread = a delicious $14 appetizer. Sometimes the ingredients obviously complement each other - caramelized onions and mushrooms with goat cheese; other combinations, like a recent … [Read more...]
