Turkey for the uninitiated

Some of the nice people in my family have decided that they’ll spend this weekend in Vegas and go see Paul McCartney in Phoenix, while I get to stay here and take Grandma to her doctor appointment where they’ll probably tell her she needs a hip replacement. These people actually...

How to make lobster sloppy joes

I have to say this is totally the best sloppy joe recipe I’ve ever found.  It was stolen from the internet, I just wish I could remember where I got it. You will need: 1 1/2 pounds ground beef 1 onion, chopped 1 red bell pepper, chopped 1 6 oz...

Amy Spicer’s secret artichoke dip recipe

This is the SECRET, famous recipe from La Spice herself. It’s better than anything you might find in a Mexican retsarint resturaent place to eat. Note The original units of measurement were a lot less precise than what I’m giving you, honey. Don’t complain. Additional note Because she is a...
