What Would Betty Do Logo Anasazi Beans

The Prettiest Beans in the World A few weeks ago, I went to the store to replenish my stock of small red beans for red beans and rice. They were out of the red beans in the bulk aisle, so I tried the packaged, dried beans. That’s when I stumbled across a bag from Bob’s […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Frozen PB&B Bites

Frozen Peanut Butter and Bananas The Tiny Kitchen Assistant is indignant that I haven’t shared this before. I’ll let him tell the story. “So you take the banana — not green, but not really mushy — and cut it into lots of circles. Then you put some peanut butter in the middle. Mom likes the […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Baked Falafel

Can You Bake Falafel? I made my first falafel this year, and while it’s really tasty, it’s a royal pain in the butt to make. Want to guarantee that the Tiny Kitchen Assistant will need your help? Fry something that requires your undivided attention. When I made my last batch of falafel, I had a […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Tequila Lime Chicken

Crockpot Roasted Tequila Lime Chicken I’ve done the crockpot roasted chicken before, and while it comes out tender and juicy, it’s not exactly flavorful. Of course, the easy way to fix that is with a marinade. One of the easiest roll-home-from-little-league meals is anything Mexican. I can have black beans defrosted in the fridge, ready […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Clara’s Meatloaf

Meatloaf Meatballs One of my favorite food blogs is Writes4Food by Bryn Mooth. As part of her ongoing Clara project, Bryn updated Clara’s classic meatloaf recipe into a modern meatball that won rave reviews with my family. Personally, I think that the transformation into a meatball is genius. To me, the worst part of meatloaf […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo “Beef and Beans”

Slow Cooker Hearty Chili First of all, let me sincerely apologize for the lack of photos in this post. In all seriousness: does anyone have any tips for how to photograph soups, stews and chilis that don’t look… well, awful? All suggestions are appreciated. In my house this recipe is known as “Beef and Beans.” […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Pozole (Posole?)

Pozole Stew I have to admit, somewhat reluctantly, that I had no clue what pozole was before stumbling across a recipe at the farmer’s market. It sounded interesting enough, so I brought it home… and promptly threw it away when cleaning the kitchen. (Oops.) This started me on a Google quest for a pozole recipe […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Whole Wheat Banana Bread

I don’t know about you, but when I see the words “whole wheat” I immediately think of two words: healthy and blech. (Does “blech” count as a word?) I promise you that this recipe doesn’t taste like some sort of healthy food. It’s a modification of this one that I found on allrecipes. This is […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Spicy Chicken Noodle Soup

This time of year, I could eat soup every day. No, we don’t have the snow that other parts of the country endure, but there’s something about cold, rainy weather that makes me even more inclined to hunker down and nest. This is probably one of the easiest soup recipes ever. You can use the […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo World’s Easiest Enchilada Soup

I had planned to make enchiladas for dinner, but as I looked at the day’s calendar, it hit me: we were going to be overbooked for the afternoon, and dinner had to be ready as we rolled in the door. It was going to have to be a Crock Pot kind of night, but what […] Read More
