Today you all are going to get a tiny glimpse here and there of the mess that can be the Humble Food Snob's kitchen. I was sick with a cold when I made this food last month. And, naturally, I didn't get sick until the ribs and steaks for Ron's birthday dinner were already thawed … Continue reading Of Ribs and Reality- “Velvet” Ribs
Good grief, it's been almost a year. A year!! SO MUCH has happened in that year, and I wasn't sure if I would ever get to come back. I've wanted to, but it just hasn't been in the cards until now. I wasn't sure if anyone would even care at this point if I came back. But … Continue reading I’m Alive and Kicking- Really!
So after being informed by my BFF that the print feature I added awhile back actually prints the entire blog post instead of only the recipe like I wanted it to, I have (with a little help from a more experienced blogger) figured out how to make only the recipe in each post printable. Yay! … Continue reading Easy Printing… For Real This Time
Ok, seriously; I cannot even begin to tell you how much I love this sauce! Remember when I told you that my husband loves my sausage gravy so much he wants to eat it in a bowl like soup? Well that's me with this sauce. And I can do that because this sauce is actually … Continue reading Awesome Beyond Words- Marinara Sauce
I've had some requests for a "print recipe" feature, so I looked around and found one of those! You can now find a new button on each post. It's labeled "print and PDF" and it can be found at the very bottom of each post along with the sharing buttons. You're welcome and thanks for … Continue reading I’ve Added a New Feature!
I've certainly made no secret of my love for Autumn here on this blog and in life in general. However, that love doesn't carry over to the sports that come with it. Well, one sport in particular: American football. It's not that I'm against sports entirely; I'm not. Rugby is awesome, soccer is pretty damn … Continue reading Autumn Is Coming, Bringing Sports With It- Chili for Hot Dogs
As the song says Christmas and it's associated trappings & trimmings is, indeed, the most wonderful time of the year. But not too terribly long before that is the other most wonderful time: the pumpkin harvest! Like millions of others in this world, I LOVE pumpkin. It's very good in savory dishes but it truly … Continue reading The Other Most Wonderful Time of the Year: Pumpkin Season- Pumpkin Butter
I have a confession to make: I hate grilling with commercial charcoal. No matter what I do I can't keep it lit. I've tried tricks & tips from numerous sources and none of them work for me. And I hate the smell of burning charcoal. It's so... harsh. And unnatural. When I grill with commercial … Continue reading Summer Sucks VIII: Something… Different- Fire Grilled Steak Tacos with Pineapple Salsa
As I've mentioned before, my family gets sick of salad pretty quickly during the summer. We don't mind eating it as a side dish fairly often but eating it as the main course has to be resorted to sparingly. I try to make it interesting by laying out a salad bar with lots of toppings … Continue reading Summer Sucks III- Ho Hum…Or Not: Salad (Dressings)
I'm sure that it will surprise no one that The Humble Food Snob dislikes cheap chocolate. And when it comes to cheap chocolate you can't get much cheaper than Hershey's. My main complaints are the fact that it's grainy (to me, anyway) and sickeningly sweet with a slight chalkiness. Now, I never noticed these qualities … Continue reading Why I Hate Hershey’s- Chocolate Syrup
