Cheese Crisps

I've seen this made with Parmesan cheese, but since they're a bit costly I tried my first try with Colby-Jack cheese. Heat up the frying pan and put some shredded cheese on it to melt and crisp up on the bottom, flip, and repeat. These tasted like super cheesy Cheez-Its. Abby couldn't stop saying "mmmm" as she ate it. Very yummy and tasty, and probably very fatty too! ^_^

Clam Chowder in a Bread Bowl

I used to work at Boudin's Sourdough, the one in San Diego and I remember these Clam-Chowder-in-a-Bread-Bowl being their best selling item. I can see why, they are so good! And they are so easy to make at home. I used Quick and Easy Clam Chowder from (with slight modifications as reviews suggest) and made my own bread bowls using the 5-minute Artisan Bread recipe by Jeff Hertzberg and Zoë François. (some of the recipes from the book can be found at Mother Earth News. One good reason to make your own bread bowls is that you can make it as big (or small) as you want (and the home-baked goodness is a plus too... ^_^) to accomodate the appetite of each person. Can be made with any creamy and thick soups, such as chili and stews.

Easiest Meatballs Ever

Although my girls are vegetarian, I like to have a meat option for the men in the house. Spaghetti was on the menu for dinner so I made some meatballs out of Italian sausages. So easy and quick. David says they aren't really "meatballs" cuz they're not made out of beef, but if Martha Stewart (got the idea from her Everyday Food magazine) can call them meatballs, so can I!
