I sure do hope that every Creative Eater out there had a warm and wonderful Thanksgiving! Now, here’s something else to be thankful for — the post-Thanksgiving Dagwood sandwich. Take a few slices of cold or warm leftover turkey breast, some heated dressing (stuffing) and some cold or room temperature cranberry sauce, put it all […]

It’s that time of year again, Creative Eaters…APPLE SEASON! I used to love caramel apples as a kid, but thanks to extensive dental work, I can’t enjoy them anymore — this caramel dip is a way that I can relive that childhood memory without risking a very expensive trip to the dentist. As an added […]

If you peruse the Internet, you’ll find tons of tips (the same tip, actually, repeated over and over) on how to make your own buttermilk: One cup of milk + one tablespoon of vinegar, stir and let sit for five minutes, then Voila!

To me, the problem with most vegetable dip mixes is that they contain actual vegetables; I find this redundant – you’re going to eat the dip with fresh vegetables, right? So, why would you want DEHYDRATED vegetables in your dip if you’re going to eat FRESH vegetables with it? It would be different if the […]

From what I understand, Greek-style yogurt is very popular. I’ve never bought this type of yogurt, though, because I found a way to make my own. Now, if you prefer Greek yogurt because it’s made with a different milk, or it has a different flavor, or it has a different fat content than regular yogurt, […]

Today’s post is a review of a recipe I came across a few days ago, which I prepared last night for dinner. The name of the recipe is, “Pan Seared Pork Chops with Cider Sauce,” which I found on KitchenDaily. Here’s the link: http://www.kitchendaily.com/recipe/pan-seared-pork-chops-with-cider-sauce-150112 It’s also worth noting that there’s a video for the preparation, […]
