Quiche Lorraine 

Back to cravings… I had put the Gruyere cheese on the grocery list months ago, and David did get some for me.  I had placed in the freezer (I do this with most cheeses especially if I know that I won’t be cooking it for a while).  Well, we had gotten the heavy cream for… Continue reading Quiche Lorraine

Weisswurst…bratwurst. Cravings.  I walk around the grocery store thinking about what I haven’t had to eat in a while, and what to cook for the week.  I make lists, and follow those, but in general it is cravings that fuel our weekly menu’s. I haven’t cooked bratwurst in a long time.  My family has preferred… Continue reading Bratwurst

Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Brownies

Chirardelli Double Chocolate Brownie mix is the bomb!  Really.  I crave chocolate, and having a small bite everyday has helped me not eat the entire pan (that, and I would probably make myself very sick). I have had cravings for Butterfingers as well.  I had some of the Butterfinger baking pieces in the freezer, and… Continue reading Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Brownies

A couple of differences: Ground turkey instead of ground beef, and currants… Continue reading Unstuffed Cabbage Rolls
