We're not francophiles per se. We don't have Eiffel tower images as our computer desktop backgrounds or provence lavender bath salts, but we do appreciate most things French. The French 75, or Soixante Quinze, was apparently named for a French... Continue reading

Here's an antidote to the nachos, chips and dip, and chicken wings so many of us will be wolfing down this Sunday. A tender, flaky white fish topped with fresh shallots and parsley. It's easy, it's tasty, and it's relatively... Continue reading

Imagine our horror and surprise when we realized how simple English toffee is to make. Egads! It's just been added to our holiday baking rotation because it's so incredibly easy and also meltingly rich and delicious. We are SCREWED! But... Continue reading

These festive little apps are freaking great! We snagged this savory hors' d'oeuvres recipe from Sunset magazine (and modified it a teensy bit). We often find their concoctions too complex for our lazy brains and fumbling hands, but pepper wedges... Continue reading

We recently spent a week in China, during which we ate a lot of eggs and tomatoes (a recognizable dish with no head attached. Score!). It's delicious and super easy, too. We made up our minds to recreate it when... Continue reading

We recently came across this recipe on Pinterest for "World's Best Chicken", originating from the website of one Rachel Schultz. We thought: We like chicken. We have these ingredients. We need an idea for dinner tonight. So we set about... Continue reading

This easy and spicy/comforting dinner is a recipe we threw together after fifteen minutes of gazing into our cupboards and fridge, groaning that we didn't know what to cook. Cajun shrimp was born as a happy accident and we've prepared... Continue reading

We're thinking of retitling our blog "Another Kale Salad". We're always looking for delicious ways to bring more leafy greens into our diet, and this salad, if we do say so ourselves, is a home run. We copy catted it... Continue reading

So, chocolate-covered bananas happened because our kids wanted popsicles and we had none in the house and no desire to run to the store. We had never tried making these banana dippers before, even though they're kind of a classic,... Continue reading

Dear Reader, As much as we love you, our main motivation for posting this recipe is selfish. We want to be able to find it whenever we need it. So, up on Half Assed Kitchen it goes. We hope you... Continue reading

We've been wanting to try making our own veggie stock for quite a while. So much so that we started saving veggie kitchen scraps in a giant Ziploc bag in the freezer. Right around the same time, friend and some... Continue reading

This is a Real Simple recipe that we tried one frantic weekday and ADORED. We loved being able to throw all the ingredients in the crockpot and go. We started our version mid-afternoon and cooked it on high for 3... Continue reading

This is the most amazing, buttery risotto ever. The creamy rice and chicken stock and cheese create, in your mouth, an elegant soireé. The type with sterling silver candlestick holders and Chet Baker pulsing through hidden Bose speakers. Except that... Continue reading

This year we pulled out a smoked salmon on Christmas Eve and noshed on it. The filet was huge, though, and we ended up with leftovers. Not people to waste a perfectly great and extremely spency fish, we combed the... Continue reading

We've been wanting to make bruschetta for a long time. Like forever. We don't know what was stopping us. We've done tomato, basil, mozzarella skewers as well as caprese salad and other variations on the tomato/basil combo. Recently we've been... Continue reading

Photo courtesy My Recipes/Sunset Here are some links for getting that bird ready to cook. The USDA has a great list of charts and instructions, as well as ample advice about handling your poultry safely. TLC says you can cook... Continue reading

We've recently discovered how delicious baby bok choy can be when sautéed in garlic- and ginger-infused oil and sprinkled with salt and pepper. Also known as Chinese cabbage, bok choy is rich in Vitamins A, C, and folate and a... Continue reading

We've been looking for a great salmon recipe to give you. All the rubs and marinades we've tried recently have not thrilled us. A few weeks ago, we picked up Trader Joe's Mojito Salmon. We liked it, but thought we... Continue reading

We hit upon this satisfying, comforting combination one night while frantically searching for dinner ideas. You know that scramble, right? The, oh-crap-it's-5:30-and-the-hungry-beasts-will-descend-any-minute panic. Yeah. So we threw all this together. It was so good and easy, we made it again... Continue reading

We know we should be posting apple crisps and pumpkin tarts right about now, but frankly, our heads are still a little stuck in Hawaii, where we spent a good chunk of August (we know, you can hate us.) While... Continue reading

This is a hearty vegetarian take on traditional shepherd's pie. A meal that was necessary we whip up. It's extra rainy and cold here in Seattle again. Time for comfort foods that contain lots of potatoes and preferably some gravy.... Continue reading

We realize that truffle oil isn't something everyone has lying around the house. It requires a trip to a fancy grocery store, or at least a fancy aisle of a normal grocery store. It also requires a small investment. We... Continue reading
