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...]

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 Be...

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...]

Kale and Bacon Cheesy Party Dip by My Utensil Crock

If there is kale in it, it’s healthy, right? How about THIS much kale? * Crickets * Ok, I will not pretend this recipe is healthy, but I will assure you it is delicious, and is a total winner for party snacks. If there are three things people are loving on these days, they are kale, bacon, and cheese. I had a few ladies over to … [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...]

Breakfast Pizza by My Utensil Crock

Breakfast Pizza. Let's go there. I was a little too excited to realize this is technically an "in-stock" recipe. I usually have all of the things needed to make this recipe in my apartment. Yessss.... For this particular photographed pizza, I used pizza dough from a little gourmet market, Centrolina Mercato. But fresh homemade pizza dough … [Read more...]

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... Stirring. I jest. It's more than that, of course, but just the littlest bit. She (and you) will love this easy recipe idea. I first met this … [Read more...]

Angel Food Cake

Angel Food Cake-3

I have a good friend from law school who always thinks I am pulling her leg. Don't get me wrong - I am often pulling her leg - but if one thing is true in this world, I would never steer SLRH wrong. She knows that, of course, but it doesn't stop her from rolling through the entire extended potential aftermath of whatever I have just thrown at her, … [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...]
