I have recently discovered that I’m slightly sensitive to garlic. Especially the volume of garlic they use in restaurants. What are they doing ~ marinating the food in a garlic oil bath? It’s just too much, along with all the oil, sugar and salt. It’s like they don’t trust that we’ll come back to their restaurant unless they show all their cards in every single … Continue reading Pesto & Hummus for Lovers.
Look away, purists. I say that a lot, because I don’t want to offend anyone by, say, putting capers in my Bolognese, or mushrooms in my Bulgogi. But here in the Bunker, if I’ve got bits and bobs in my fridge that need to be used, and would enhance the flavor? Well then all bets are off. I mean, I’m not purely one thing, so … Continue reading Bunker Bolognese.
I have two great ~ I mean GREAT ~ mothers. My real mother (Hi Mom!) and the mother I inherited when I married the Giant Scandinavian (who is currently my hero because he has somehow figured out how to teach CHOIR from home). And both of my mothers have brightened up my life, this past week, with their amazing recipes. I recently purchased a recipe-organizing … Continue reading Two delicious summer salads.
Hi friends. How are you doing during this utterly surreal time? Isn’t it strange and mildly comforting to know that we’re all in the same boat? I’ve been watching Instagram videos of Jamie Oliver, all the way across the pond in Merry Old England, and he is also stuck at home, no matter how amazing and rich and influential he is. He’s trying to be … Continue reading Bunker Bolognese.
My, my, my…it has been a minute! Hello, friends! I’ve missed you. I really haven’t had all that much to report. No yummy cooking, and definitely no healthy yummy cooking to speak of. But friends, that’s all about to change. I’ve been watching this amazing show on Netflix ~ Jamie Oliver’s “Quick and Easy” or “Five Ingredients” ~ or something like that. I can’t remember … Continue reading Chicken and Mushroom Pasta w/Broccoli.
Pasta salad…in a martini glass? WHY NOT! This is a Tannehill family favorite ~ my mom made this all the time, especially in the summer for barbecues and parties. The original recipe should NEVER be tampered with, but alas, I had hardly any of the correct ingredients. I still captured its spirit, though! And then went and ruined it by putting it in a martini … Continue reading Pizza Pasta Salad.
This post is coming to you late because I‘m really behind on life. And stressed, and unfocused. Praying this will pass! Tuesday night‘s din din was MY kind of food ~ pasta!!! Only, made with Whole 30 compliant ingredients ~ YAHOO! I wanted to make Lidia’s famous Pasta Trio, but I figured only two kinds of “pasta” would do. Here’s what we ate: Sweet Potato … Continue reading Whole 30 Italian Night.
Gooooood morning from Indiana!!! It’s absolutely beautiful here ~ cool breeze, hot sun, and we’re out in the middle of the country, eating amazing food, having fun with family, and watching the corn grow! Last night I made a pasta salad to go with my brother-in-law’s incredible charcoal-grilled-to-perfection ribeye steaks. MAN they were good. And the pasta salad wasn’t too shabby either. Got a little … Continue reading dill pasta salad w/yogurt dressing
