What Would Betty Do Logo Spaetzle

“German Mac and Cheese” It seems appropriate to post this on St. Nicholas Day, the day that the Tiny Kitchen Assistant asks me if St. Nicholas will make the journey from Germany to deliver oranges, nuts and chocolate to him for being a good boy. The Assistant forgets nothing, and he’s been asking about it […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Balsamic Strawberry “Pizza”

Balsamic Strawberries and Mozzarella This recipe is modified from one that I saw at the farmer’s market. Their recipe was for a balsamic strawberry and mozzarella crostini appetizer. Let me be upfront about this: while that sounded absolutely amazing, I don’t do appetizers. I’m lucky that I can get a one-course meal onto the table […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Open-Faced German Sandwiches

Croque Madame I’ll be the first to admit that I have no idea if these sandwiches are German in any way, shape or form. What I do know is that I saw them serving something similar at a cafeteria in Germany, and I built my own when I returned. It’s a variation on a croque […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Lasagna Roll-Ups

So there we were, on a Saturday night. It was already 5:00 and I’d given zero thought to dinner. So I polled the boys. The Tiny Kitchen Assistant requested pasta.

I showed the photo to the Tiny Kitchen […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Try Something New: Brussels Sprouts Salad

There’s really no earthly reason why I don’t like Brussels sprouts. I like cabbage. Why do I have such an issue with miniature cabbage? I’ve tried another Brussels sprouts recipe here in the past, and while it was perfectly fine, I wanted to find a way to actually eat them without bacon. Because really, everything […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

I got this recipe from a fellow In a Pinch mom who delivers meals to moms’ club families in need. If you have disposable foil pans, you can prep this meal for potlucks, delivery or once-a-month cooking. It’s easy to make and easy to scale to as many servings as you need. The recipe below […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Try Something New: Spaghetti Squash

I’ve tried spaghetti squash before, and really, it’s a very likable veggie. How can you go wrong with anything that can be served like a pasta? For me, once a food meets tomato or parmesan, it achieves hallowed status. The problem is that I haven’t been able to convince the Tiny Kitchen Assistant that this […] Read More
