Bodacious Buffalo Wing Sauce – Liz’s rave

Are any of you fans of QVC? (I know one reader who is… and you know who you are…) I am a huge fan. I especially like David Venable. He’s sort of like a big loveable Teddy bear – you can’t help but like him. At least I can’t. Anyway, I follow him on Twitter and have his app on my cell phone. Which is where his recipe comes in. The app features a list of his “app-only” recipes – many of which I’ve written down, hoping I’ll get around to fixing them. Last night, I was searching for something simple, relatively low in carbs and extremely high in taste. Enter his recipe for Oven Baked Boneless Chicken Tenders. I’m telling you it was OFF THE CHARTS GREAT! (Actually they tasted just … Read entire article »

Top Dish Tarragon Chicken – Liz’s rave

As you guys know, cooking is about as high on my list as a trip to the dreaded dentist. It’s not that I don’t like to cook. It’s more that I don’t like figuring out what to cook. Endless otherwise productive hours are spent coming up with something to fix, usually ending with me tossing some chicken nuggets in the oven and calling it done. But sometimes I out-do myself. Like last night. Granted, I’ve fixed many a dinner that I really like. But this dish is ranking up there with one of my all-time favorites. And for a chick who doesn’t like to eat her own cooking, that’s saying something. So I figured it would be fun to highlight those dishes that rise above the fray – that stand out … Read entire article »

Quick cauliflower salad – Liz’s recipe

Okay peeps – let me begin by saying photos to follow. (That’s sort of like saying ‘the check’s in the mail’ heh, heh, heh.) The photos will follow because I finished up the last of this yesterday. As I was finishing it off, I had a eureka moment – “Hey!” I said to myself. “This is PERFECT for Coffee Break with Liz and Kate!”  That is sooo like me Please try to overcome. This is a super quick, three-ingredient salad (sans any seasonings you’d like to use). It’s light, tasty, crunchy, and I’d like to think, good for you. Great as a side dish, afternoon snack, or even a light lunch. Here’s what you’ll need: Cauliflower florets (or a head of cauliflower) Broccoli florets (or a head of broccoli) Light mayonnaise (or some … Read entire article »

Get your party on: 11/21-11/27

Well, here we are. A few short days until Thanksgiving – and a bang-up list of holidays to explore (give me my dreams, ok?). Actually, things really don’t get going until Nov. 24 with Celebrate Your Unique Talents Day. Oh sure. I can celebrate my multiple talents all day long (and you could, too). But the trick on this day is to celebrate talents unique to each of us. Hmm. Maybe we could change this one to FIND Your Unique Talent Day. But no one asked me. Tie One On Day lands on Nov. 24, so if you’re planning on doing some Turkey Day Eve cooking, you may want to tie one on after your work in the kitchen is done. Flossing Day, Buy Nothing Day, Sinkie Day and Your Welcomegiving Day are … Read entire article »

Recipe of the week – Cheater Chicken Casserole

TGIF, dear readers! Liz here. Please try to overlook the fact that I’m in the kitchen, because I know that can be a frightful thought. Nevertheless, I thought I’d share this super easy recipe with you. It’s almost the equivalent of chicken soup – comfort food at its best, in my opinion. That said, I present: Cheater Chicken Casserole Ingredients: Pre-cooked chicken strips (check the package for number of servings – I typically buy one two-serving package because Colton is not adventurous when it comes to eating) 1 package frozen broccoli Velveeta cheese to taste A couple dabs of butter Butter cracker crumbs (Ritz, Club Crackers, etc – even saltines will work) Directions: Zap the broccoli in the microwave for 3-5 minutes to begin the cooking process. While it cooks, place chicken strips into a greased casserole dish (I usually … Read entire article »

Betcha Didn’t Know – how the Thanksgiving wishbone tradition began

Apparently the origins of the Thanksgiving tradition of breaking the wishbone date back to 2,400 years ago with the Etruscans who lived on the Italian peninsula. The Etruscans believed fowl were fortune tellers because the hen announced she would be laying an egg with a squawk and the rooster told of the coming of a new day with his early morning crowing. A circle was drawn in the dirt and divided into twenty wedges that represented the twenty letters in the Etruscan alphabet. A piece of grain would be placed in each wedge. A hen would then be allowed to peck at the grain. As she ate, a scribe would list the letters in order and those letters would be interpreted by the high priests to answer questions. When one of these … Read entire article »

Liz’s rant: What’s on the menu?

More than you know. The Wall Street Journal This Morning reported fast food restaurants often have a variety of items for sale that aren’t necessarily on the menu. While I already knew this – I’ve been known to pick up an order of scrambled eggs and a side of bacon at Mickey Ds – I wasn’t aware of the number of eateries beyond the Golden Arches that follow suit. Before we explore the other restaurants, here are a couple more treats from McDonald’s – a Neapolitan milk shake, made of part vanilla, part chocolate and part strawberry shake. Again, it’s not on the menu, but if you request it, they’ll make it. And if you’re crazy about their special sauce, you can order a side to dip your fries in. Wendy’s has a Grand … Read entire article »
