So I joined Weight Watchers…

Posted by gryphn on February 23, 2016 in Food & Drink, weight watchers |

Yes, I finally took the plunge.  I’ve been trying to get rid of the weight I gained before and during my pregnancy and it just hasn’t been going well alone.  Thus here we are with the Smart Points program.  I’ll admit the last 4 days have been a roller coaster of emotions for me.  From […]

Being Beer-venturous

Posted by gryphn on October 6, 2010 in Food & Drink |

So I’m working on a beer recipe.  I’m going to enter it in Next Year’s Queen of Beer Homebrew Competition.  I’m looking at doing one of the “ancient” beers.  Something along the lines of an alcoholic chocolate drink.  I have to formulate it myself without help from the mighty one.  I’m thinking I’m going to […]


The unfortunate omelet

Posted by gryphn on September 24, 2010 in Food & Drink |

So I was just going to make scrambled eggs, but for some bizarre reason that intention turned into an omelet. A very very salty omelet.  Everything started fine.  The cheese was good and the Krab was well… the only protein available, but it still wasn’t bad. The problem item was the olives and my lazy […]

Along with the squash I had some tomatoes that needed to be used or they were going to rot, so…. I made some salsa.  I usually make a fresh salsa or a table salsa, but I decided to get adventurous and blend the 2 together.  I had about 8 tomatoes, so right there I’ve got […]


Butternut Squash Soup

Posted by gryphn on September 20, 2010 in Food & Drink |

I made the Alton Brown Squash Soup last night.  I had squash and I really wanted some soup so you can see where that went… I ran out of chicken stock after 2 cups and I needed 3, so I fished some dashi stock I made a little while back out of the freezer and […]


Lemon Cordial-2 & Lime Cordial-3

Posted by gryphn on April 26, 2010 in Food & Drink |

I made some cordials yesterday and decided to play with the recipes a little adding some low glycemic level agave nectar to the Lemon and Raw Cane sugar to the Lime.  Since the Simple syrup makes up about half of the liquid for the cordials, making them differently like this could have a major affect […]


Lemon Ice Cream, YUM!

Posted by gryphn on April 25, 2010 in Food & Drink |

So today was the day of citrus…  I made a Lemon ice cream The lemon ice cream is a little different than what I usually make.  It wasn’t heated prior to putting it in the ice cream maker. I used this recipe from www.bellaonline.com: 3 cups milk – whole milk or 2% 1 cup evaporated […]


wow I didn’t think it would be that hot…

I forgot my lunch today and so I went to the Rice Kitchen, which is one of my more favored Chinese restaurants. I got my normal Lunch special, but I thought I would try something new. So I got the Hot and Sour Soup… ummm wow. I think my lips may burst into flame. I […]


Holy Goat Chops Batman!

Posted by gryphn on July 6, 2009 in Food & Drink |

So I finally broke down and got some goat chops at the City Market.  Now my chore is to figure out how to best dress them.  And no I’m not talking in a frilly dress either. 🙂 Seriously though… I’ve got nothing on this one, so it’ll be an adventure.


Lemon Lemon Lemon

Posted by gryphn on June 29, 2009 in Food & Drink |

As you may or may not remember, I made a lemon cordial at the same time as I made the lime and cherry cordial.  I’m very pleased with the Lime and meh about the Cherry.  The Lemon has a LOT of potential, but I think it’s going to need to age a bit before it […]
