Over 250 Recipes!

This is an exciting day. About 3 1/2 years ago, I started a blog at getyouryummyback.com (GYYB). Ever since, I’ve been posting recipes weekly for soups, salads, sides, main dishes, starters, breakfast and treats. I’ve highlighted how to cook gluten-free whole grains, tips for the perfect stir-fry and how to grill a turkey. There are now about 250 recipes in the GYYB archive.

I am officially moving all of the GYYB content here to flagstonepantry.com, where I run my business. There are lots of good things in the works at Flagstone Pantry and I look forward to keeping you in the loop on all the shenanigans. Until then, if you are looking for a recipe, simply use the search bar to search by ingredient or by key word such as “main dish” or “muffin”…

Chili Time!

This week started out as summer and took a major turn towards Fall. In celebration – I made this Red Chili. I surfaced an old favorite recipe and made it my own by blending ground pork and beef, adding spices and a little heat. It’s delicious! For 5 chili recipes, read more…

Poaching + Green Apple Chicken Salad

Things are about to get really interesting around here. This weekend, I am moving my portable electric burner, refrigerator, and work table into the living room. Yes – the living room. Demolition is about to begin on our home renovation, the result of which will include a brand new kitchen (!!). Until then, I will continue my quest to stir up healthy eats at home in, shall we say, less than inspiring circumstances.

Take this Green Apple Chicken Salad for example. Once I poached the chicken, it came together so quickly – crunchy, tart, nutty goodness. If I can still do anything in my makeshift kitchen, it’s poach chicken. To learn how to poach chicken and get more links to recipes for salad with poached chicken, read more…

Make Stuffing You Will Love

I know what you’re thinking. Stuffing is that dish on the buffet table, sort of like fruit cake, that is either forgettable or unforgettable (usually for reasons you don’t want to remember!). By following a few simple guidelines, you can turn out a stuffing that will leave your guests begging for more.

In other kitchen shenanigans, I whipped together a Cran-Apple Couscous last night that was pretty tasty. I started by cooking 1 cup of whole wheat couscous. To the cooked couscous, I added chopped apple, dried cranberries, chopped green onions, and sliced toasted almonds. I then dressed it with apple cider vinegar, grape seed oil, orange zest, salt, and pepper. Yummy! For inspiration on making simple dressings and pumpkin bouquets at home, read on…

Martian Brains

It really is a wonder that I grew up liking Brussels sprouts as much as I do given that my Mom always referred to them as “martian brains.” Perhaps that was her way of making them fun to eat, and yet, what girl in her right mind would want to eat martian brains? Me, I guess. I digress… […]

Spicy Orange Chicken Stir-Fry

We were in Philadelphia for the weekend running the ING Distance Run, a half marathon (13.1 miles) course in the historic downtown area and along the Schuylkill River. It was a gorgeous morning for running and I am pleased to report that a good race was had by all. Six weeks, and counting, until the NYC Marathon! Getting back into town after […]
