Kale Greek Salad

Kale Greek Salad ~ by My Utensil Crock

Before I was able to fully detox* from my trip to Charleston last weekend, I am off again. * Work was wayyyy too much of a mess this week to actually eat healthy food and not drink.... She says, playing a mental montage starring cheetos.... If you didn't follow along in Charleston on Instagram, may I suggest you start here: #brunch … [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...]

Tortilla Chips

Make Your Own Tortilla Chips ~ My Utensil Crock

This spring has been a busy one, so I am reposting an oldie but goodie. Almost four years ago (!) to the day (unplanned! fortuitous!) I posted this recipe for making tortilla chips out of tortillas. Healthier than a store-bought bag of chips, and about 20 minutes in the oven. Not bad, right? Try them in these Healthy Nachos, like I do! When … [Read more...]

Italian Sausage Lasagna with Zucchini No...

Zucchini Turkey Sausage Lasagna by My Utensil Crock

I have so been looking forward to posting this Italian Sausage Lasagna with Zucchini Noodles. It actually started as a "Thanksgiving leftovers" recipe, of all things, when I had considered using shredded leftover roasted turkey in the filling. But I had a slight fail with making a roasted turkey breast a month before Thanksgiving during a time … [Read more...]

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...]

How to: Make Buttermilk at Home {Two Ing...

How to Make Your Own Buttermilk! by My Utensil Crock

Have you bought a carton of buttermilk? Have you ever used all of it before its expiration? I know. I make my own buttermilk, with just two staple ingredients: skim milk and fresh lemon juice.  In short, the lemon juice curdles the milk, and the resulting concoction can be substituted for buttermilk in any baking recipe, or similar, … [Read more...]

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...]

“All the Good Stuff” Day-Aft...

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...]
