Oat flour pancakes with fresh roasted fruit syrup ~ by My Utensil Crock

In this crazy world we are living in, may I recommend: THIS. I enjoyed it all weekend long. And potentially will at work too this week; need to work on my commuting/storing/serving-on-desk system. I definitely had it last night for dinner. Because I have never regretted "breakfast for dinner," and neither would you. This recipe … [Read more...]

Roasting Pan Meal: Za’atar Chicken...

Roasting Pan Meal with Za'atar Chicken, Broccolini, and Oranges by My Utensil Crock

2017 may be my Year of the Roasting Pan Meal. I have roasted vegetables in the oven, and I have roasted meat in the oven, but together? In the same pan? Why does this idea seem so revolutionary? And the possibilities and permutations are endless! I'm already thinking about shrimp. I wonder if this same method would work for fish filets? … [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.

Take Two Turkey Ragu with Whole Wheat Spaghetti by My Utensil Crock

I could eat pasta with meat sauce every day. One of my first posts was this basic meat sauce. I think it's cute how I ended the recipe with "let it simmer for 10 minutes." Ha! Like I have the willpower to not dig in immediately. This Take Two Turkey Ragu with Whole Wheat Spaghetti has a little twist, and I don't know why it seems so … [Read more...]

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...]

Thanksgiving Bounty Veggie Crustless Quiche by My Utensil Crock

Am I talking about Thanksgiving already? Under 4 weeks is fair game, if you ask me. Or, if you read my blog. Which, you do. You can certainly make this Thanksgiving Bounty Veggie Crustless Quiche on other days, if you are in the mood! But Thanksgiving lends itself to lots of surplus cooked veggies, and probably some extra people in … [Read more...]

Pad See-Ew with Chicken

Pad See Ew with Chicken by My Utensil Crock

"Pad See-Ew with chicken." That's my order when I go for Thai food. Every time. I don't deviate. I knew that "Pad" means stir-fried, but I had to look up "see-ew." Looks like it means "soy sauce"! That must be why I like it. Stir-fried soy sauce. Well, some other things too. When you order Pad See-Ew at a Thai restaurant, it is made … [Read more...]

French Toast S'More-lettes aka Croque Mons'morelettes by My Utensil Crock

When we last left our heroines, they were chowing down on Italian Quinoa Breakfast Casserole and a huge tray of Indoor S'Mores in a cabin in the woods in honor of LS's bachelorette weekend. Man, life is good sometimes. Our leading ladies, however, had a bit too much to eat and drink over the weekend and couldn't finish the billion Indoor … [Read more...]

Indoor S’Mores for a Group

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...]
