What Would Betty Do Logo Don’t Try This At Home, Part 3

Cauliflower Pizza Crust It started with the Paleo-dieters, the ones who eat nothing but bacon and eggs for breakfast — but no carbs! Never carbs! — but then ordinary everyday people in my social media feeds were posting various recipes for how to turn a head of cauliflower into a low-carb pizza crust. And I […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo A New Vehicle for Enchilada Sauce

Quinoa Enchilada Bake I love enchilada sauce. Possibly much more than normal people. So when my friend sent me this recipe from Two Peas and Their Pod, naturally I had to try it. In order to make it kid-friendly, I eliminated the jalapeƱos and added the spice at serving with an array of hot sauces. […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo What to Do With Your Zucchini Harvest

Kid-Friendly Zucchini Fritters I’m kind of surprised that I’ve never posted this one before, considering that I’ve made it half a dozen times. I came up with this recipe a few years ago when the school sent home a massive zucchini from the garden. What does someone do with a 3-foot zucchini? Fritters. Fritters are […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Quick Cornbread

Quick and Easy Homemade Cornbread It was finally, finally a rainy night in California, and I wanted chili and cornbread. Unfortunately, I didn’t realize until the last possible moment that I didn’t have any buttermilk to make my usual cornbread recipe. I scoured the internet and quickly discovered that there aren’t exactly a ton of […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Whipped Coconut Cream

Non-Dairy Whipped Cream I try not to make a big deal about the fact that I’m lactose intolerant. Seriously, nobody wants to hear about your food sensitivities, especially it’s something that can be mitigated with a chewable tablet. But there are times when dairy is layered upon dairy and a Lactaid pill just isn’t enough. […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Creamy Papaya Seed Dressing

Papaya Seed Dressing and Marinade When you go to Hawaii in the winter, they practically give the papayas away. No, really. At 7/$2.00, or about $0.28 each, they’re far and away the cheapest thing on the island. We ate them morning, noon and night. After a while, I got the idea of making papaya dressing. […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Challah French Toast with Cherry Sauce

Making the Best French Toast Even Better I was going to just post the recipe for the cherry sauce, figuring that French toast recipes are universal and everyone does the same thing. A quick scan of The Internets comes to one screaming conclusion: I’ve been doing my French toast wrong all along. Evidently the rest […] Read More

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 Roast Your Own Pumpkin

Tons of Pumpkin Puree Let’s say, hypothetically, that you got it into your head that you wanted to roast a pumpkin. And again, hypothetically, you figured that if you were going to go through the hassle of roasting said pumpkin that you would purchase the largest gourd that would fit into your bike pannier, a […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Nutella French Toast

Nutella and Fruit French Toast In the continuing saga of my deficiencies as a blogger, my child has once again demanded that I take dictation for the sake of spelling accuracy, as he tells how to make his favorite French toast. All commentary is his unless noted in [brackets]. “First, you take the soft bread […] Read More
