Summer Picnic Recipe Round Up

  It’s almost the 4th of July.  That time of year when I have to diffuse Lavender and Peace and Calming and dose my dogs with benadryl so that they can survive the onslaught of non-stop fireworks for several days and nights.  It’s also the time of year that I enjoy spending time with my […]

Homemade & Real- House Seasoning by Real Food Girl: Unmodified. This seasoning makes everything better from chips to burgers and more!

Almost Famous Real Food House Seasoning

  Almost every restaurant that I’ve worked in has had a special house seasoning.  They put it on virtually everything. I’ll spare you the colorful language that a kitchen full of prep-cooks and chefs use when referring to applying the seasoning to stuff, but suffice it to say, they love their house seasonings and they […]

Brown Sugar Maple Baked Beans with Bacon

  Several weeks ago my grandkids came over for the weekend. I spent most of my time in the kitchen and my granddaughter, Little Miss B. helped me out. One thing she was particularly interested in helping me with was a baked bean recipe that I had found in one of my many cooking magazines.  We […]

Easy BBQ Chicken on the Grill. Saucy, Juicy, Tangy, Perfect!

Easy BBQ Chicken on the Grill

Grilling chicken has always been a frustrating endeavor for many people.  You either end up with charred outsides and dry insides, or perfectly cook outsides and raw insides.  Neither of those is good eating in my opinion and I don’t blame people for getting frustrated with grilling.   Now if you happen to be the […]

Grilled Parmesan Herbed Potatoes

It’s grilling season. A time of year that I used to love because that meant TSM was going to be cooking most nights. Now, somehow, since graduating from culinary school I seem to be cooking 99.5% of the time and TSM has turned the grilling over to me.  I think it’s time to save up […]

Lemon Blueberry Loaf Cakes by Real Food Girl: Unmodified

Lemon Blueberry Loaf Cake

I had in my possession, for about 20 years the most amazing lemon bread recipe. It was from one of my mom’s old friends, Mrs. Bratnober. That woman could bake. Over the years, each time that I made this bread I fought all urges to eat the whole loaf myself without sharing any.  However, I […]

Creamed corn with bacon and poblano pepper by Real Food Girl: Unmodified

Creamed Corn with Bacon and Poblano Pepper

  I’m pretty excited about today’s recipe. I really like corn. I especially like sweet corn. When we moved to South Carolina I noticed that they had all sorts of farm stands along the sides of the roads. I was in fresh produce heaven. That is, until I found out that the one I was […]

Minnesota Wild Rice Hotdish- A Recipe Remake

  I’ve been working on remaking a family recipe that my Aunt MJ makes.  Her recipe is great, but I thought it would taste even better if I added some plain Jasmine rice and a creamy sauce.  I mentioned in the Perfect Wild Rice post that it has taken me a while to enjoy the […]

How to cook the perfect wild rice by Real Food Girl Unmodified

How to Make the Perfect Wild Rice

I’m from Minnesota. It’s the land of Wild Rice. Did you know that Wild Rice is actually an aquatic grass seed, not a rice grain?  ‘Tis true my Food Hippies.  It’s a coarse annual grass called “zizania aquatica”. Despite its name, the plant isn’t even related to rice.  For me, Wild Rice was an acquired taste.  I’m not sure […]

The Perfect Rustic Style Mashed Potatoes

Mashed potatoes. The quintessential comfort food. There isn’t anything that a bowl of smashed up taters drenched in melted butter and bursting forth with gravy can’t make better.  Chopped off your thumb in a woodworking accident?  Here, have some mashed potatoes.  Boyfriend dumped you for your best friend?  Psh- not to worry.  Have some mashed […]
