If the current cold snap has you in the mood to immerse yourself in a cinnamon and white chocolate-covered baking project, then I’ve got the perfect little number for you today. I would love to speak in depth about it, but I was taught not to talk with my mouth full. So I’ll just say (in between bites, of course) that this popcorn is a hit wherever it goes (slumber parties, bake sales, or your family room), it makes a perfect hostess gift, and it would be a terrific addition to any Thanksgiving dessert buffet.

Good morning and welcome to this week’s edition of Enjoy Sendik’s All Week, where today I’m sharing a slow cooker recipe for Loaded Baked Potato Soup. I figure people are busy and could use an addition to their crock pot repertoire. Personally, I don’t have time to make dinner, as I’m spending the afternoon writing meaningful, heartfelt get well cards to each and every one of the injured Packers. If you’ve seen the lengthy list of fractured fellas, then you understand that’s a project that’s going to take a long, long time. Read the rest of this entry »
I cannot even tell you the number of times I fell back on this recipe during track season last spring. Have you ever been to a track meet? They’re kind of like swim meets except on dry land. There are approximately 12,000 events. And your own offspring is likely to compete in oh, let’s say … two. It’s awesome when this child becomes adept at narrowing down the window of time in which she will be competing, because then you’re able to plan your arrival to the asphalt venue accordingly. Not that it’s not 100% awesome to watch other people’s children run like they stole something. Because it is. For real. Read the rest of this entry »

Good morning and welcome to this week’s edition of Enjoy Sendik’s All Week, where I have three terrific recipes that make great use of ingredients that are on sale in the current Sendik’s ad. I love each one of these dishes, so let’s get cooking.
In case you’re just sitting around, pondering what to make for dinner next Monday night (and who doesn’t ponder a meal that’s almost a week away?), I’ve got your main course covered. Yes, indeed I do. Here’s what needs to happen: sometime this coming Sunday, you’re either going to go yourself or send an able-bodied shopper who lives with you to the nearest Sendik’s. That’s where Pork Shoulder Roasts will be on sale for $1.99 a pound. ONE DOLLAR AND NINETY NINE CENTS A POUND. Apologies for the shouty caps but I really just want to drive the point home: you will be able to make these fantastic tacos with a pork roast that’ll run you roughly six bucks and change. Maybe seven if you want a little extra. Read the rest of this entry »
I’m excited about this week’s ad. There are some great ingredients on sale, and that’s good news because I feel like cooking. Here’s what’s on the DamFam docket this week, if you want to come along for the ride. As usual, all three recipes are kid tested and mom approved. : )
You might recall last Tuesday’s blog post where I was mourning the end of cherry season and soothing my sadness by way of apple consumption. While apple therapy continues to be helpful, I’ve added tons of pumpkin to my fall cooking regimen as well. I cook with canned pumpkin all the time when autumn rolls around – not just for the usual breads, pies and muffins, but also for this soup, which I consider to be a DamFam Greatest Hit.
Over the years I’ve morphed the original recipe into what I’m sharing with you below. This recipe is excellent as a light lunch, and lovely for a dinner party first course. With the crunchy sage croutons, I would also qualify it as perfectly kid friendly. I hope you like it too. Read the rest of this entry »
I hope you had a chance to take advantage of the Two Day Meat Sale earlier this week. It’s Wednesday morning as I write this, and my plan is to skedaddle up to Sendik’s as soon as I’m finished telling you what’s on my shopping list. Here are some dinner ideas for you if you happen to have shopped for the same cuts I’m planning to buy. I’ve made room in my freezer, and I’m ready to roll. There are some good deals and daylight’s wasting, so let’s just cut to the chase! Read the rest of this entry »
It took me a month or so of agonizing and painful withdrawal, but I am finally over the sad and sorry fact that cherries have gone out of season. I recognize that there are worse things in life to be hooked on (Breaking Bad, anyone?), but I seriously had a four pound per week Hood River Cherry thing going there for a while this summer. Four pounds a week might be a conservative estimate, actually. I was pretty bummed by the onset of fall when the cherries disappeared for good until next July. Read the rest of this entry »
