Sticky Chicken Wings, from Everyday Food.

These were delicious. So delicious, in fact, that Gabe proclaimed he could eat them "all day, everyday", and that they were better than chicken from the Hangar, which, if you know Gabe and you know the Hangar, you will realize is saying a lot.

Fast Raspberry Scones.

Easy and delicious. Plus, they're small, so you can eat a bunch of them, and it's really just like eating one regular scone... or something like that. :)

Shrimp and Sausage Jambalaya with Broiled Tomatoes

Made this as my Mother's Day dinner! It was quite yummy - even Ben seemed to love it. Could just be that he loves shrimp, sausage and broccoli though. Oh, and these sausages? Are totally delicious. Haven't met a flavor that I don't love.

Cranberry White Wine Spritzer

Another EDF cocktail. Pretty good, but also would've been better with ice! Our refrigerator is perfect, except for the lack of ice maker (and the fact that it tried to burn our house down...).

Pork Ragu

Made with some of the pork shoulder that I cooked up a couple weeks ago. Pretty yummy, though next time I will use regular mashed potatoes - the sweet potatoes imparted too much flavor of their own.

Tequila & Tonic with Lime

Everyone knows that Martha has a drinking problem, so I figured the cocktails that she has in EDF were worth a try!

I must admit, the first time I tried this I didn't make it myself. I was at a wedding, with open bar, and I probably had like 6 of them. They are yummy! I've always been a fan of the vodka and tonic, but these may trump it.

The one I made myself (and photographed) was pretty good, though we didn't have any ice. (Despite having like 2 dozen ice cube trays, from when I was making all of Ben's baby food)

Easy Pork Shoulder from EDF April 2010.

Not very exciting in and of itself, but it has been portioned up and frozen so that I can take it out to make yummy things like pulled pork sandwiches!

Brown Sugar Poundcake Cupcakes (with my own Strawberry Buttercream) from the Martha Stewart Cupcakes book.

These cupcakes were yummy, though a bit dense, but I guess that's to be expected with POUND cake. I will definitely make them again, especially since my mom basically demanded that I make them the next time she visits. :)

# 037 + 038

Pork Milanese and Ricotta Dumplings, both from the May 2010 edition of EDF.

This was a super yummy meal, though a bit more time consuming that I like dinner to normally be - definitely good for a special occasion or something along those lines. The ricotta dumplings were especially yummy, and much easier than the stupid gnocchi I tried making a while ago.

White Bean & Tuna Salad from the May 2010 edition of EDF.

A quick, easy dinner that was very enjoyable, although not very photogenic...

# 035

Bean & Cheese Burritos from the "5 Meals for $50" feature in the April 2010 edition of EDF (Everyday Food).

Filling and cheap, and they didn't taste horrible.
