109. Eggs Bechemel

I love that there are brunch cards in the DiS! set. Why? Because when else is it socially acceptable–nay expected!–to start drinking at noon? Only at brunch! Well, and also maybe at football tailgating, but that’s not in my wheelhouse. … Continue reading

117.Othello Cake (Happy 2nd Birthday, Dinner is Served!)

Something amazing happened last week–Dinner is Served turned TWO! I can’t believe it. My mind is completely blown. I am gobsmacked that I’m still doing this, let alone that there are people other than my parents reading it. Well, to … Continue reading

Wiener Wednesday: Sausage in Biscuits

This week’s recipe comes from Better Homes & Gardens Meat Cookbook (1971 edition) Sausage in Biscuits! That sounds tasty. Sausage: good. Biscuits: very good. Kinda like Nic’s British Sausage Rolls–which are just little pockets of heaven. But then you get … Continue reading

58. Scandinavian Fish Scallop

I had been looking forward to #58 for quite a while. It’s not every day you take on a recipe that includes canned fish balls as an ingredient, amiright? Plus, you can sing “fish balls” to this little ditty (starts … Continue reading

WIENER WEDNESDAY: Coney Islands

What says “hot dog” more than Coney Island (and also, what says “eating so much that you vomit” more than Coney Island)?  Although I had no designs on eating so many hot dogs that I’d puke, this chili-dog dish fit … Continue reading
