See that? It’s called the Spirooli. I bought it because it promised to cut my veggies into fun shapes, which just sounds like fun, and I figured, if it worked, I would finally have a low-carb substitute for pasta. (BTW, I do and a recipe is soooo on it’s way). It costs about $25 ($20 if you’ve got one of thsoe ubiquitous bl [...]
Hey there! We’ve been gone a while, and we’ve missed you!
What was originally only going to be a 2 week hiatus turned into 3 months (!!!) thanks to post-surgery recovery needs, the holidays, and a few back-to-back snowstorms that have hit the Northeast.
Although we’re still not quite back in the saddle, we’re close en [...]
As I type this, Thanksgiving is practically here, but I just have to pay tribute to one of my favorite holiday dishes, cranberry sauce! I just love anything cranberry, and I anxiously wait for the flooding of the first cranberry bog and the appearance of those beautiful berries in my local grocery store.

Whereas most people use flour to thicken their gravy, we [...]
Turkey may be traditional Thanksgiving fare, but not everyone is gaga over the gobbler. If you feel obligated to have turkey on the table, but don’t need a whole bird, consider roasting half of a turkey breast instead. This recipe is large enough to supply enough turkey to the few turkey lovers in your midst without leaving you with a [...]
I’ll be honest, I never really understood the love affair with green bean casserole so nostalgia wasn’t a problem for me when it came time to revamp it. This re-made green bean recipe is studded with sauteed mushrooms and salty bits of bacon. And everyone knows bacon makes everything better.
I like recipes that make a big impact [...]
I know what you’re thinking. Thanksgiving is so close y0u can practically smell it, and you need something to serve your special LGITer that’s more than just turkey. Well, we here at ENP have got you covered starting with this great veggie frittata that makes a great Thanksgiving breakfast.
With all the cooking you need to get do [...]
Halloween is in T-minus 2 days. You’ve got these worm-like noodles that would pair great with our marinara sauce, and you’ve got our magic monster brew to go along with it. What’s next? Dessert of course.
This recipe uses The Charlie Foundation’s Caramel Sauce recipe as its base and adds a little crunch in the form of [...]
