    I am an attorney with the firm Rich, Rosenthal, Manitta, Dzubin and Kroeger who practices mainly family law, but I get pulled in on random other civil litigation matters.

    I enjoy cooking, baking and eating out. I also enjoy traveling, volunteering, reading and other casual pursuits from time to time. I also love my bichon puppy Max, and my really sweet hubby, Matthew who indulges my foodie tendencies.

  1. I politely disagree that it isn't life changing, hahahahhaa. I have been using mine lately for a lot of curries. I also used it to make some baked beans from scratch- that was great as I could saute the bacon in the pot then add everything else in and start it. Has anyone used it for "risotto" if so any recipes you liked to do it?

    Thanks, I am excited we will be able to have a grill, and I have a hood vent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (I am not sure there are enough exclamation points for a hood vent in existence for this.) I will be able to make much better flatbreads and steaks and so much more.

    Well we just got under contract for a townhouse- so the empty the cupboards for realz- is officially on. Last night I emptied the box of grits and made a cheese grits (according to the package instructions) and topped with shrimp sauteed with bacon, tomato, green pepper, onion, zucchini and a little tomato paste and Worcestershire.

    Last night was sausage with kale, zucchini and string beans with soy, hoisin, sriracha, and seasame seed oil that I cooked some soaked noodles in.

    Friday night was chicken, bacon, L,T, M sandwiches. Last night I took a copycat of Zoe's Kitchen coleslaw to that I doctored up to a bbq. Tonight was pizza with the leftover smoked chicken, homemade tomato sauce, roasted peppers, onions and tomatoes with marinated mozz. I am a little tired of the smoked chicken, and we had a good bit left and we are hosting people for dinner this weekend where I will need a vegetarian entree and a meat one, so I made some penne, threw in the red extra sauce, spinach, leftover roasted veggies, the chicken and the driblings from the bottom of the marinated mozz container (I will use the mozz and top it with that before baking and finish off the tub) tossed in the freezer for later this week. I also cooked some marinated chicken breasts for this weeks lunches/dinners (I know I just said I was tired of chicken, but I marinated them and needed to cook them and they are a different flavor).

    DR Summer picnic -7/29/18 Noon to 5ish

    Well we never really know how many people are going to come, but it's a great time to spread the word to people who may be interested in joining DR.com... what I have done in the past is to make something that has at least 12-15 small serving sizes, so at least a large skillet size, or small casserole size. I have debated changing the cheese biscuits to a more rustic bread due to the tomatoes, but I like the cheese biscuits as an appetizer kind of thing, maybe I will do a test run this weekend. I would go savory, as if it is likely going to be hot (just a guess on that) I think people eat more savory than sweet? Just my two cents.
  9. This looks really good, I am having a vegetarian for dinner next week, and I think I might make this. Can I ask- is it zucchini two ways- roasted and raw, or is that cucumber on top?

    Saturday I made homemade baked beans in the instant pot with butter, pinto and white beans, and some bacon and normal sauce ingredients- ketchup, molasses, mustard powder, pepper, apple cider vinegar, etc. They were delicious, why does anyone buy pork and beans? I also baked red pepper jelly with cream cheese dip and honey sriracha coleslaw to go with the chopped pork and smoked chicken the caterers were providing at a friend's bbq/pool party. Sunday we picked crabs, so Monday I made a pasta with crab, roasted tomatoes and zucchini with a white wine, garlic, parsley, lemon, olive oil sauce. Tuesday was leftover bbq and slaw sandwiches.

    Learn & be entertained: facinating nonfictions

    I think I posted this on the duplicate thread, but I REALLY enjoyed The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind. I realize they may have made it into a movie (I never saw it), but I thought the book was really insightful into his world in Africa.
  12. My paralegal said it was good, that is why I tried it out (and it was in a location I needed to be in). He is from Georgia and likes the same bbq as Hubby, so I wanted to try it.

    Nope, couldn't get them to work, either.
  14. I am not sure, it tasted somewhat different to me, but maybe it was the sauce? I have thought PBBBQ was a little sweeter. Definitely same owner though.
