Angel Wings Wednesday #15


My friends with babies don’t know what to do.  Do they avoid me?  Hang out anyway?

I know that when I had babies and knew of friends suffering with fertility problems, I never knew what to do.  Should I reach out or am I merely flaunting my ability to have children?  Should I not reach out and risk losing a friend?

Now that I’m on the other side, I know what to do.  And I’ve seen my friends not know how to act.  A lot of this recently came to a head, so I thought I’d share my experience.

Buffaloaf (Classic Meatloaf) {Food n' Flix}


Here we are for my second Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 recipes!  The sweet little Buffaloaf!  He’s so stinkin’ cute! 
                            

In case you missed it – here’s the blurb from my last post:

This month, my friend Wendy invited me to join in on Food ‘n Flix, a fun little club wherein participants watch a movie and then whip up something inspired by the movie! 

Food‘nFlix


This month’s movie is hosted by Camilla from Culinary Adventures with Camilla.  She chose Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs or Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2.

Since I’d seen the first one shortly after it came out, I decided to watch the second one.  And I LOVED it!!!  I think the sequel was even better than the original!

In Cloudy 2, the malfunctioning food making machine has continued to make food, but after being unattended, it has created a whole new ecosystem of foodimals!  I’m not going into much further detail about the movie here, but I will say that I love it and I adore the foodimals!


So after making the SubWhales, I knew I wanted to make the Buffaloaf.  I ended up liking him even better.  I just can’t get enough of him!  Dat face!

French Onion Soup Grilled Cheese & Balsamic Caramelized Onions: SRC


Yippee!  It’s Secret Recipe Club Day!!

This month’s assignment was Ellie’s blog, The Hobo Kitchen.  As the name suggests, Ellie resides in Hoboken, NJ.  As I started going through her recipes, some seemed familiar, and as I dug further, I found out that The Hobo Kitchen was formerly the Bitchn’ Kitchn’, a SRC blog assignment from last year!  Then I got really excited, because I knew about all the completely fabulous recipes on her blog!

Ellie even has a whole section of her recipe index dedicated to boozy cupcakes!  AHHH!!!  So tempting!

In the end, I decided to make a French Onion Soup Grilled Cheese sandwiches with Balsamic Caramelized Onions because yum.  Once I saw the recipe, I simply couldn’t get it out of my head!

Rhubarb Muffins




Of all of the plants in my garden, the rhubarb is doing the best, by far!

I’ve harvested it a number of times already and shared my bounty with friends and relatives.

My favorite dish to make is Strawberry Rhubarb Pie (or last year’s Rhubarb BBQ Sauce), but if I really want a treat, I make rhubarb muffins!

Can I tell you a secret?  These muffins are the exact kind of muffins I’m always calling out every other time I make a muffin.  You know, that ones that have so much sugar that they’re practically cupcakes?  Boom.

Like I said, they’re a treat!

Bacon Wrapped Beer Brats


I just love summertime grilling!

These brats just scream man food, but trust me, ladies like these, too!

I recently made these for a BBQ with friends and they were gone in no time flat!

You can use whatever condiments you have on hand with these brats, but swiss and beer onions are an amazing combination!  Give it a try!

Light Zucchini & Potato au Gratin


It’s zucchini season, boys and girls!

With the chilly, rainy June we had, my garden isn’t doing overly well.  Despite that, the zucchini is flourishing and I was able to have my first mini harvest (one zucchini – hehe) last week.

So what to make?

This is actually the first year I’ve planted my own zucchini, so while I’ve cooked with it before, I certainly don’t have a large arsenal of recipes.

After some thinking and a peek in the pantry, I decided to combine a few of my favorites: zucchini, potatoes, and cheese!  And since I almost never have cream in the house, I whipped up a light sauce using milk, so we didn’t have to feel bad for eating half the casserole in one sitting!
