I'm a pop culture geek, married to a non-geek, "normie" guy. I also like cooking and crafts. My own crochet patterns posted here. Please be respectful of my work and keep in mind that most of those crochet patterns have only been made once or twice. If you find a mistake, let me know. If you make something, please send me a link back.
If this blog still isn't enough of me for you, check Geek Crafts for even more of me on Saturdays under AmyLynn98, or find me on Twitter at @JediAmyLynn98.
I knew right away that Shane wasn’t going to be interested in lox, so this was my breakfast this morning. It comes from
Just a Bunch of Recipes.
some damn reason, no matter what I did to my frying pan, the bread kept
sticking to it and the outer layer would tear off. I don’t know why,
because I’ve used that pan for grilled
sandwiches before. Sam did recommend a heavy white bread, and I was
using regular grocery store brand white bread. However, it had been
previously frozen bread, but I pulled that loaf out of the freezer days
ago and it’s been fine for everything else.
I also swapped out Gouda for Fontina, as all the Fontina cheese was gone.
What did I learn from this recipe? Oh..my…gawd…I
My husband will never want to try this sandwich, and he’s not
a picky eater, but I know he’ll never try it. I’m fine with that,
because it means I won’t have to worry about anyone
using up the lox I can buy at the store, before I have a chance to eat
any of it.
Make this. It’s fantastic. That’s all I need to say.
decided to knock out a few quick recipes for myself, because I know
there are certain ones my husband won’t eat. Case in point: Mashed
Potato Tacos. I read the recipe to him and all he said
was, “No. If there’s no beed in it, it’s not a taco.”
He was actually quite happy with this frozen pizza for supper tonight, while I had two of these tacos. Normally I wouldn’t make two different meals, but seriously, these are super easy. They
come from Awesome Recipes & Kitchen Shortcuts.
What did I learn from this recipe? I had forgotten to
get the sour cream for these the last time I was at the store. But, I
had a jar of salsa Verde instead and these tacos actually needed the
extra spice (I also added a little minced garlic to the potatoes). I
with sour cream, these tacos would have been like shoving a cloud into
your mouth: mealy and soft. There was really nothing to set the various
flavors apart, save the salsa. It was a lot like a bean burrito.
unfortunately, there was no texture to these either, even with some
porchini and truffle potato chips. Now, part of that might have been my
own doing. Sam recommended
folding them in half to eat. Judging from the picture, it would be more
like rolling them into a traditional taco shell shape. I actually
rolled them, again like a burrito, to eat them, to keep the potato chips
