Mrs. Katie’s Mom’s Banana Bread

The friend I’d made the quiche for had coincidentally made banana bread the day I’d visited her as well, and it was literally the best banana bread I’ve tasted in a long time if not ever (hence only being able to grab a picture after being 3 slices myself and 2 slices herself in). So…

Upside-Down Rosemary-and-Olive-Oil-Chip-Crusted Quiche

A mouthful of a title if there ever was one. Honestly this could also just be called “Fancy-Chip-Crusted Upside-down Quiche” – but I suppose even then it’s still fuckin’ long. 🤷‍♀️ This recipe came to be because on my quest to find low-sodium chips I could gobble down without worrying about the salt, I bought…

Cinnamon Coca-Cola Cake

This is my first recipe away from GPF again 😦 While I miss him, I hope ya’ all missed the absolute fuckin’ monstrosity that was the limited edition Cinnamon Coke that came out for the winter. If they’d had just a touch, just a taste of cinnamon, I think it would’ve actually had a chance…

Deconstructed Chicken Pot Pie

Or: GPF threw out the pot for the pie. Even so, we needed to use the leftover chicken he’d made for himself for Christmas dinner and today was the very last day we could use it, so my dogged determiness to not waste food (especially meat) allowed me to figure out this way to still…

Bourbon Biscuits

One day I’ll be able to fucking make COOKIE-cookies. Of note, this recipe makes about 9 Biscookies. Edit: While I originally called these biscookies, upon taking a small bite (and being immediately disgusted because whiskey is nail polish remover in disguise and you can’t tell me otherwise), I discovered the softness and texture is that…

Spicy Spaghetti Leftovers

I’ve mentioned in previous posts that I hate to waste food and that most of my recipes come from trying not to do just that. As you may be able to tell from the title, that’s exactly where this recipe stemmed from! While GPF is hard to truly please (all of my recipes land in…
