Salt Potatoes

This week I learned that salt potatoes are a regional thing. I had no idea! They're from CNY because of all the salt mines in the area.

It kind of explains why I didn't know what they were before I moved here, but that's beside the point.

What makes a good marinade is very similar to what makes a good salsa. It's all in the ratios.

Quick Summer Salad

It's hot today. It was hot yesterday. It's going to be hot tomorrow and I don't think it's going to stop for some time.

I don't want to turn my oven on. The pilot lights are keeping the main room hot enough as it is.

What can I make for lunch that's quick, doesn't require a trip to the store, and won't require any heat whatsoever?

Answer: A refreshing summer salad!

I love these rolls. They're SO good fresh out of the oven, and when they cool down, they're pretty much English muffins. They're great toasted with preserves or peanut butter.

Blondie Brownies

Let's make some brownies! I've been in the mood for chocolatey baked goods this week. This isn't quite hitting the spot, so maybe I'll make something else tomorrow.

Egg Drop Soup

I've been trying my hand lately at making different Asian dishes. I came upon a recipe for Egg Drop Soup that is so quick and easy, it was hard to pass up. It's a lot less intimidating than it seems. I can't believe I never tried making this before! It was a big hit.

 Once I get everything set up, I'm going to start taking step by step pictures.

[Obligatory] Introductory Post

Hi all!
My name is Rebecca. I currently live in upstate New York with my husband and two cats. I've been asked about making a blog in the past, and today I decided to take the plunge!

I plan on updating at least once a week, if not more. I have a LOT of spare time on my hands right now, so look forward to some changes. :) I'm not the best with words, so this is going to be a work in progress on a lot of levels.
