Parfait! Afternoon Delight Tomatoes: September 21, 2012
Add some shelf-life to all those tomatoes coming from the garden.
Parfait! Amazing Wondercheez: October 21, 2011
You didn’t expect me to come out and call it Velveeta, did you?
Parfait! Apple Cake, French: October 16, 2015
Parfait! Apple Galette and One Fine Crust: August 31, 2012
I made pâte à foncer – a French take on your basic pie dough, and added some ground cloves to make up for a bland batch of apples.
Parfait! Apple Galette: December 19, 2014
Still one of my most requested desserts; I think mebbe folk just like saying ‘galette’.
Parfait! Better Apple Pie Bars: October 21, 2016
Parfait! Artichoke Salad: July 11, 2014
Parfait! Asparagus (Bleu Cheese Roasted) Soup: June 26, 2015

Parfait! Bacon Jam Ciabatta Rolls: March 8, 2013
Wherein my new favorite bread dough is wrapped around a savory filling.
Parfait!: Bacon, Maple Roasted: February 27, 2015

Parfait! Beef Short Ribs, Bone-in, Sherry Peppers Barbecue: February 20, 2015
Parfait! Beef Stroganoff: July 31, 2013
Certainly spicier than your traditional, and this version might could be considered just a wee, tiny bit lighter than my original, because I have cut down on the amount of sour cream used. As always, I use REAL sour cream; that ‘lite’ and ‘reduced whatever’ stuff is loaded with stuff you really do not want to have with your dinner. Well, we don’t.
Parfait! Beef Stroganoff: September 18, 2015
Parfait! Beer Marinade: July 8, 2016
Try this on beef. And pork. And lamb. And mebbe even chicken. This is one of my new favorite marinades. Good thing it’s dead simple to toss together.
Parfait! Big Cheesburger ‘Za!: May 31, 2013
Parfait! Blueberry Salad with Feta and Dried Cherries: June 21, 2013

Parfait! Burger Buns, Better: December 13, 2013
Parfait! Burgers, Pub: May 22, 2015
Parfait! Buffalo Wings, Sticky Chicken: August 23, 2013
Mebbe my best attempt yet at Buffalo-style chicken – but do try (as I plan t0 next time) baking the chicken on thick slices of sweet onion instead of on a rack. Clean up will be much easier, and you’ll have all those lovely roasted onion slices to go with your chicken. Bonus!
Parfait! Buttermilk Meatloaf: February 3, 2012
Good meatloaf – great glaze!
Parfait! Buttermilk Meatloaf: January 25, 2013
This version mixes things up a bit by replacing the ground beef with a combination of ground turkey and pork to make a leaner, meaner, but still wicked tasty meatloaf.
Parfait! Buttermilk Meatloaf: June 7, 2013
Yeh, I know I keep coming back to this meatloaf, but check out the fine quesadillas I made with the leftovers!
Parfait! No Buttermilk? No Problem!, February 19, 2016
Parfait! Buzzy Banzai Burgers: August 2, 2013
I’ve tweaked things a bit here and there; making my own ‘Terryaki’ sauce, adding a slice of garlic pickle and a bit of yellow mustard to make my best Banzai Burger yet!
Parfait! Buzzy’s (CreamCheeseChocolateOrangeEspresso) Brownies: August 1, 2013
Parfait! Cake, Orange Cream: January 6, 2017
Parfait! Cake Pops, Salted Caramel: December 27, 2013
These are mebbe better than the first batch in three ways: I just made the cake according to package directions (the really lovely extra egg and mayonnaise version makes a great cake, but is mebbe a tad too rich for all that is then added to make cake pops). Next, I eliminated the pop sticks. My cake balls were too big for them anyway, and kept falling off. Lastly, instead of searching out a jar of salted caramel sauce at Trader Joe’s or some pricey specialty shoppe, I made my own (easy) dulce de leche and added sea salt and a drop of brandy. YUM.
Parfait! Candy Apple Chicken Wings: October 21, 2013
I added a light coating of nicely seasoned flour to the wings before baking, which helps the wings hold onto the sauce. Good right from the oven, mebbe a bit better the next day.
Parfait! Best! Carrot Cake: October 23, 2013
I’ma tell you, Bobby Flay’s carrot cake is terrific, but adding a bit of ground ginger to the spice mix is a very good thing.
Parfait! Carrots Vichy: November 11, 2011
Parfait! Cauliflower ‘Za!: August 21, 2015

Parfait! Cherry Pie Bars: October 28, 2016

Parfait! Chicken, Whole, Pressure Cooker: March 5, 2017
Parfait! Chicken Wings, More Better: September 5, 2014
Parfait! (Rich. Dark. Moist.) Chocolate Cake: November 1, 2013

Parfait! Chocolate Stout Cake: November 8, 2013
Parfait! Chocolate Pretzel Cookies: December 21, 2012
I am still not a huge fan of these cookies, but if Rich’s mom likes ‘em, that’s enough for me.
Parfait! Chop Pickle: August 19, 2016
This sweet and tangy relish is based on one my grandmother used to make.
Parfait! Ciao! Piccolo: March 30, 2012
Cauliflower, peppers and such, all nicely pickled and packed into jars for your pleasure.
Parfait! Ciao! Piccolo: March 29, 2013
I make this tasty chopped pickle several times a year – we like it on grilled sausages, but my sister and her buds enjoy it as a chip dipper, so you go ahead and do what you like.

Parfait! Cranberry Relish: November 16, 2016
Parfait! Cream Cheese, Jalapeño: November 30, 2012
Parfait! Crêpes, Stuffed Manicotti-Style: August 15, 2014
I added sun dried tomatoes to the crêpes, beef to the pasta sauce, and used whipped cottage cheese as the base for the filling. Nice!
Parfait! Dates, Bacon Wrapped: October 31, 2014
No trick! This treat is wicked simple, but almost scarey good.
Parfait! Dates, Bacon Wrapped: April 3, 2015
Still wicked tasty, but this time, I’ve stuffed the dates with some lovely blue cheese, and wrapped ’em in duck bacon. Yeh. Duck. Bacon. Can you believe it? Best. Ever.
Parfait! Dinner in an Hour: October 12, 2012
Nigella’s Chicken gets paired with asparagus and baby Yukon Gold potatoes for a fine autumn dinner in next to no time.

Parfait! Figgy Pudding Cake: January 6, 2012
Parfait! Flat Bread, Best!: June 1, 2012
I’ve swapped out rye flour for the whole wheat and found that adding 4 or 5 hours to the rising time makes for One. Fine. Flat. Bread.
Parfait! Flat Bread (again!): October 19, 2012
Back to the rye flour, but this time I’ve added a sweet toppings version. Be certain to make note of the option I mention at the bottom of the post – yum!
Parfait! Flat Bread Stars: December 14, 2012
YES, again, but THIS time cut into cunning little stars for the holidays. How cool is that?
Parfait! French Bread, Honey Whole Wheat: June 20, 2014
I added whole wheat flour and adjusted the recipe to just make one loaf of this very nice, very tasty bread.
Parfait! French Bread Sammich Buns: February 21, 2014
I cut the no-fuss French bread recipe in half for just the two of us, but a full batch will yield a dozen fine burger buns suitable for amazing your friends, confounding your enemies, and generally improving the heck out of your next cook out.
Parfait! French Salad Dressing: November 14, 2014
Parfait! Greek Marinade for Souvlaki (or Salad): September 11, 2015
I really cannot decide if I like this best as a marinade or a salad dressing. Try it and see if you don’t have the same (delicious) problem.
Parfait! Green Beans Mandarin: August 24, 2012
I skipped the nuts, added toasted ramen noodles and a zippy little ‘hot’ chili seasoning packet to make a pretty darned decent canned veggie recipe mighty fine! Try it and see if you don’t agree.
Parfait! Golden Chutney: August 29, 2014
Tomato chutney made with yellow sunburst tomatoes (and a couple of plum tomatoes, too).
Parfait! Ham Salad, Besterer!: June 17, 2016

Still the best.
Parfait! Better For You Horseradish Sauce: July 15, 2016

Parfait! Israeli Couscous Salad: August 7, 2015
Parfait! Jalapeño Cream Cheese Spread: March 15, 2013
Best version yet.
Parfait! Johnny Mazetti Spaghetti: September 7, 2012
Wherein I cut out a LOT of cheese from one fine and tasty pasta casserole, and the results are not too, too bad! Of course, it’s even better when I sprinkle the leftovers with a bit of cheddar and Asiago and pop ‘em in the ‘wave – but I still ended up with a pretty major net savings on cheese content.
Parfait! Johnny Mazetti Spaghetti Casserole: October 9, 2015
Updated with my new favorite 3 Pigs Pasta Sauce and a most excellent ten year old Cheddar.
Parfait! Kielbasa Vinaigrette: February 13, 2015

Parfait! Limoncello, The Best!: November 9, 2012
Parfait! Limoncello (mebbe besterer): November 15, 2013
A bad batch o’ lemons cut down the usable amount of peel available, so I improvised and added the peel of an orange, then, later, a cube of fresh frozen lemon juice to the simple syrup to boost the flavor. Nice!
Parfait! Limoncello: December 5, 2014
‘Tis the season, and the perfect time, to make this tasty little treat.

Parfait! THE Marinade for Lamb Chops: June 8, 2012
Put away the mint jelly, this marinade, and mebbe a dab o’ rémoulade or horseradish sauce is all you need. Ermmm, I wouldn’t say no to a bit of Allioli, either.
Parfait! Marinated Stuffed Cherry Peppers: November 2, 2012
Always welcome at the holidays, and now vegetarian to boot! Just remember to plan about a week for the peppers to properly marinate.

Parfait! 2 Day Pasta Salad: June 29, 2012
You don’t really need 2 days, but you do need to plan on 3 or 4 hours total. Oh, and make twice as much dressing. Nice macaroni salad.

Starting with a jar of decent spaghetti sauce, you can add a ton of flavor and veggie goodness to your dinner.

Parfait! Plum Sauce: October 4, 2013
Parfait! Plum Sauce (and Jam): September 19, 2014
A box of Italian prune plums from Costco reminded me I needed to make another batch of this fine little condiment. It’s really your choice, make just the (very good) plum jam; save half and turn the rest into (also very good) plum sauce, or, if you’re like us and not hig jam users, just turn the whole shebang into jars of sweet and tangy plum sauce goodness.
Parfait! Poppy Seed Salad Dressing: January 13, 2012
Parfait! Pork Chops, Cider, ermmm Braised: July 5, 2013

Go all the way and add your freshly sliced bit o’ goodness with pickle and yellow mustard – yum!
Parfait! Smothered Chops and Sweet Potato Poutine: January 20, 2012

Still wicked good; so you have now have no reason not to try them.

Parfait! ‘Sup! and THE Barbecue Sauce: May 24, 2013
A nicely spiced ketchup, made from ingredients you know and trust is always a good thing. Turn around and turn that nice batch o’ ‘sup! into enough of my FAVORITE barbecue sauce to see us through the first part of summer, and I’d call that WINNING!

Still good, and still one of our favorites, but check out the very end of the post…
