My family has given up dining out much, but I still get cravings for certain things that I never thought I’d know how to make myself at home. For example, ethnic foods.

This poor, simple classic casserole will not win a single beauty pageant, but it does a super job as an easy staple for a busy weekday. What I like most about this version is what it is not…loaded with cans of creamed soup or dried soup packets. Vegetarian? No problem…just omit the chicken and […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
I love Seinfeld. I think most situations in life can be related back to at least one Seinfeld episode.
