With my current “super-commuter” status, most of my previous blogging–and cooking–time is now spent in the car. So, instead of cooking and blogging, I’m driving, and listening to audiobooks. While this commute time does entail some mental menu mapping, the last few months have year has been a rinse/wash/repeat approach to cooking, with the focus on minimizing … Continue reading

Dump this in the crock pot before work or running your errands and come back to a big pot of tasty chicken that can be incorporated into your meals in many ways in the coming week.

Breakfast Casserole, Revisited

I started getting into breakfast casseroles as the ideal “grab and go breakfast” towards the end of last summer. After a few months of experimentation, I’ve found a few tricks that lead to (near) casserole perfection: Use a 13×9 pan.

Green Chile Pulled Pork

Green Chile Pulled Pork

I saw this amazing sounding salsa verde pulled pork from CrossFit Football and had to try it. Of course, I’m lazy and didn’t want to do more dishes, so I skipped over the browning/searing/deglazing step and straight to the “meat into pot with sauce” step.

Not that I’m exactly a risk-taker, pairing weird and inventive flavors together, but I no longer freeze with anxiety and crippling indecision when faced with the daunting task of going off recipe.
