My Utensil Crock Oatmeal Station

Oatmeal Station by My Utensil Crock - a streamlined way to assure a quick, healthy, filling breakfast

It has been raining in Washington, D.C., since April 27. Not constantly, but a lot. Every day. News outlets report that it didn't rain on Thursday or something, but my hair begs to differ. It's been unpleasant, and cloudy, and foggy, and misty for as long as I can remember. After driving rain during the day Friday, we did have a little respite … [Read more...]

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Greek Yogur...

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt

To my new friend MM who told me tonight: "I love peanut butter, and I love yogurt, and I would love to put them together, but I don't know how" (or something very similar), may I recommend...

And want to know what's … [Read more...]

Grits Casserole {Healthy}

Grits Casserole-3

I have been wanting to post this recipe for a long time. It is one of my staples, and I am forever searching through my electronic files for it, using the search term - wait for it - "mushrooms," because the original recipe had a braised mushroom topping. But I don't braise anything when I make this dish, and it has absolutely nothing to do with … [Read more...]

How to: Microwave Bacon

How to Microwave Bacon-3

One thing I don't love about cooking blogs is when the author gets too in-deep with the personal stories. Know what I mean? It's like - all you want is to know how to cook crispy bacon in the microwave in one easy step, and to get to the info you have to read through an homage to, like, some random dog's birthday, you know? Well, guess what. My … [Read more...]
