I have now developed a burning desire to go to culinary school.  Of course, at the nice young age of (almost) 66 years, I don't think there will be many scholarship opportunities available.  It's the age old story, if you have the money, you don't have the time, and now that I have the time, you know I don't have the money.  LOL

Thank you so much everybody. I'm really glad you like it as much as I do. — AnnieBananie 5/14/2012

Chicken Carbonara

Steve, this looks great. Since I'm doing a low carb eating plan these days, I think I'd probably substitute cauliflower "rice" for the real stuff though. 10/31/2010

Belgian Waffle Batter

Belgian Waffle Batter

This medal is for Belgian Waffle Batter This was soooooo yummy. I had bought some mix that was less labor intensive, but didn't taste nearly as good. I'll be doing this one again and again. Just a note to watch the instructions. The eggs require separating, and the instructions don't say where to add the vanilla. I just added it with the rest of the liquid ingredients. — JCSM-Mom 6/3/2009

Hummingbird Food

If you'd like to photograph these little jewels, stick a flower into one of the holes in the feeder. Block the other holes with a bit of tape. Add a spoonful or two of the nectar to the center of the flower, and line up your shot. Once the bird arrives and starts to feed, all you'll have to do is keep clicking that shutter. — damotts 2/12/2009
International House of Pancakes Pancakes

International House of Pancakes Pancakes

Like the previous poster, I too discovered that I had to add liquid to the recipe. I was out of milk (which would have been my preference), so used about 1 1/4 cups of water. Other than that, the pancakes were okay. 2/10/2009
Onion-Crunch Chicken Thighs

Onion-Crunch Chicken Thighs

I love oven baked chicken made with cornflake crumbs, but thought I'd give this a try. It's really good and I will be making it a staple in my weekly diet. I used chicken tenders, and the crunchy coating made a nice contrast with some steamed cabbage. For my fellow Weight Watchers, it comes out to about 3 points per serving with the tenders. 10/23/2008
Thit Bo Sao Dau

Thit Bo Sao Dau

This was really good. It's the first new recipe I've tried in a long time that I really enjoyed eating. Easy to fix, easy prep, and good taste? What more could you ask for. Thank you for posting the recipe. :) Anne — kimmyqt 10/21/2008
Bamboo Steaming

Bamboo Steaming

A sharp cleaver will make quick work of chopping up the chicken and other ingredients. This is a great way for dieters to cut the fat and calories, while still enjoying a tasty meal Add any type of vegetables you like (i.e. green beans, asparagus, cabbage) [I posted this recipe.] — AnnieBananie 10/3/2008
Bourbon Marinade for Chicken

Bourbon Marinade for Chicken

Very nice. I had no Dijon mustard, so I just left it out. Was even flavorful after only a ten minute marinate (I have a FoodSaver that does it that fast). Gave my grilled chicken a very nice flavor. 7/13/2008
Irish Soda Bread Muffins

Irish Soda Bread Muffins

This is not at all a traditional Irish soda bread, which would be simply made with whole-wheat flour, baking soda, salt and buttermilk. Thoroughly Americanized, these muffins have traveled a long, long way from their Irish origin -- as have most Irish-Americans. With thanks (again) to King Arthur Flour, for this recipe.

Bagels

Bagels

**Note - While baking, the bagels didn't seem to be browning much, but when I turned them over, the bottom (now on top) was nice and brown, so that's something to keep an eye on. — AnnieBananie 3/8/2008
Bagels

No more store bought bagels for this gal. These are great and easy to make (albeit a bit time consuming). Try mixing up a batch with your kids. They'll have a blast. [I posted this recipe.] — AnnieBananie 3/8/2008
Chinese Barbecued Baby Back Ribs

Chinese Barbecued Baby Back Ribs

These weren't too sweet for me. They were just right. And since I don't care for loads of sauce dripping off my ribs, this worked out well too. Very tasty!! The only change I'd consider is to bake them on a rack, rather than right on the baking sheet. That way, any grease and fat will drain away from the ribs. — swibirun 2/1/2008
Bread Machine Pizza Dough

Bread Machine Pizza Dough

Since this dough can be refrigerated for up to 36 hours, you could prepare that part in advance, and just add the toppings and bake for 15 minutes (or less) after a busy day, and when you don't feel like fussing with anything more complicated. **PLEASE NOTE: if you ever use a disposable pizza pan, please do not, repeat, do NOT, try to use it a second time. You're likely to find your oven smoking like a brush fire (or worse). I of course, thought I could get away with a second shot at it, but wound up having to transfer the pizza to a too small broiler pan, which caused part of the side to bend. And of course, after all this, I didn't leave it in the oven long enough to get that golden brown outer crust, but that's easily rectified. So here it is, all it's pepperoni splender.

Crispy Zucchini Coins

Crispy Zucchini Coins

I needed a side dish in a hurry, and gave this a try. It was not only good tasting. It was FUN!! I will be making this again. I can see it as a snack, in place of greasy potato chips. And for Weight Watchers, it's only 2.2. points!! Thank you for such a great recipe. — kimmiekinkins 1/4/2008
Summer Corn, Bacon and Potato Chowder (4 Points)

Summer Corn, Bacon and Potato Chowder (4 Points)

I didn't have Yukon golds, so substituted just a regular russet potato. Next time, I would boil the potato, rather than microwave it. I think it would mash better that way, which in turn, would thicken the soup more. I wonder if canned potatoes would work too? All in all though, this is tasty, and the vegetables stayed nice and crisp (the way I like them). Since it's been kind of chilly here in South Florida the past couple of days, this dish is just hitting the spot, and keeping me focused on my weight watching menu. Thanks!! — frogn 1/4/2008
