Easy Pizza Pitas

This isn’t really a recipe, that first. Mainly it’s just a simple snack that my son has been hooked on since the first time I made them. The kid’s a pizza junkie. There’s just no other way to put it. If it even remotely looks or tastes like pizza, he’s game. The thought of using a few pre-made pitas as at the basis for a quick, easy and totally satisfying…

Hi, it’s me… Kay. You remember me, right? Vaguely? This here is J-man’s all-time favorite pasta sauce. Mine too, but that’s probably due to all the vegetables that make it chockfull of flavor.

STAT“, attached to it,…

Creamed Corn and Peas

I admit, the name is somewhat misleading since I’m not using cream at all. But that’s good, right? This is my son’s all time favorite side dish. The kid devours it. I’ll often double it so he can have more than one serving when we eat something he’s not too crazy about. Which is basically anything that doesn’t start with the letter P: pasta, pizza or pancake. I use the…

Cookies and Cream (Haägen Dazs Copycat)

Here’s a wee bit unorthodox recipe for a copycat version of J-man’s (and mine) all-time favorite ice cream: Haägen-Dazs Cookies & Cream.
