Curried meatballs and apricot rice

Chris and I were browsing at Barnes & Noble on Friday, and I took a peak at a test kitchen book I’d been intrigued by for a while. The cookbook, Simple Weeknight Favorites, is pretty similar to others we have

Curry topped sweet potatoes

We made this meal for the second time a few days ago, and it was just as good as we remembered.  It’s not fast owing to the baking of the potatoes, but it is easy and lets you clean up

Russian vegetable pie

This pie is not Hungarian, much to my dismay. I spent a fair amount of time looking for the recipe under that name, only to realize I’d mixed up my geography. The internets cannot find things that don’t exist.  It

Dinner table topper

I jumped on the bandwagon that I’m pretty sure most crafty/sewey blogs on the internets jumped on. Quilters all over, young and old have been making scrappy trip around the world quilts – Quiltville. I had previously made a full

Chicken salad from roast chicken

There’s no recipe here, just a money and time saving trick that Chris and I often like to use.  It generally starts on Sundays.  Every once in a while we enjoy what we call ‘Sunday dinners’.  These usually entail a
