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 Pepper and Egg Sandwiches

Grilled Bell Pepper and Egg Sandwich I’ve been looking for more (any?) meatless options in our meal plan, and when I stumbled across Bryn’s post about grilled bell pepper and egg sandwiches over at, I had to give it a try. I did make a few changes, not the least of which was serving […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Everybody Loves Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup

Creamy Tomato Orzo Soup “I love tomato soup,” declared the Tiny Kitchen Assistant, apropos of nothing. “Ms. Z makes it for us all the time.” As a kid who isn’t terribly fond of soup in general, this seemed too good to be true. I figured that I’d make the soup and he wouldn’t eat any, […] Read More

I tried all kinds of mayo alternatives: Greek yogurt, sour cream and strange concoctions involving […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Sloppy Joes

Sometimes you just want comfort food from childhood, and there’s nothing quite as comforting as sloppy joes. I’ve updated the recipe a bit so that it’s better than your store-bought kit. If your family prefers a blander version, reduce the amount of steak seasoning by half. Leftovers can be frozen in single-serving sizes for a […] Read More
