What’s Cookin’ Wednesday: Happy Birthday Cookies!

I have tried the America’s Test Kitchen browned butter chocolate chip cookies (before browned butter was a thing.) I have tried the legendary Neiman Marcus recipe that makes hundreds of cookies. I have tried my mom’s recipe,… Continue reading What’s Cookin’ Wednesday: Happy Birthday Cookies!

What’s Cookin’ Wednesday: Rockets

Other What’s Cookin’ Wednesdays I guess I have a thing for writing about our sweet little treasures in Iowa. Don’t you love when you walk into a place that smells like childhood?  When I walked into Rockets this morning, I smelled childhood.  Morning donuts mixed with the smells of coffee and café and vinyl seating. … Continue reading What’s Cookin’ Wednesday: Rockets

What’s Cookin’ Wednesday: Broccoli Cheese Casserole

Other What’s Cookin’ Wednesdays I have avoided writing about this for some time now because it’s tender.  It just goes to show that food really does touch your heart and your soul and from time to time, your hips.  My twin miscarriage last summer was unexpected and difficult. I called my friend Katie after composing… Continue reading What’s Cookin’ Wednesday: Broccoli Cheese Casserole

What’s Cookin’ Wednesday: Funeral Potatoes

Other What’s Cookin’ Wednesdays I know, I know.  Funeral potatoes.  Everyone is a critic or they make the best or their Grandma does or they hate them or they don’t do cornflakes on top.  Is there any subject more divided? (sweet potatoes, potentially.)  But these funeral potatoes are made with cream of chicken soup. I… Continue reading What’s Cookin’ Wednesday: Funeral Potatoes

What’s Cookin’ Wednesday: Blake and Refried Beans

Other What’s Cookin’ Wednesdays I have the best husband in the world. You might think you do, so sorry, reader.  The best husband in the world comes home after a long day at the office fighting off the bad guys of the cyberworld and is still happy.  He clunks his giant backpack full of techie… Continue reading What’s Cookin’ Wednesday: Blake and Refried Beans
