My Nana taught me many important life lessons. For starters, she made sure I knew how to eat popcorn politely - "one piece of popcorn at a time [...will keep you from looking like a fool when you drop half a handful down your shirt while shoveling it in your face]." (My husband is still trying to teach me that lesson).

Caprese fettuccine with Italian chicken sausage http://www.snixykitchen.com/2014/09/10/sausage-caprese-fettuccine-spinach-buratta/ http://www.snixykitchen.com/2014/09/10/sausage-caprese-fettuccine-spinach-buratta/#comments Wed, 10 Sep 2014 08:56:53 +0000 http://www.snixykitchen.com/?p=7640 Caprese Fettuccine



This wasn't supposed to be today. No - today was supposed to be a two-part dessert to use up our fruiting meyer lemon tree. Then sometimes things just happen. Things like your fall wardrobe barely fitting coupled with the realization that the last three recipes you've shared were desserts.

Sweet and spicy curry cracker jack http://www.snixykitchen.com/2014/09/04/sweet-and-spicy-curry-cracker-jack/ http://www.snixykitchen.com/2014/09/04/sweet-and-spicy-curry-cracker-jack/#comments Fri, 05 Sep 2014 03:07:26 +0000 http://www.snixykitchen.com/?p=7638 Spicy Curry Cracker Jack



We've resorted to elementary school tactics over here. Thanks to the brilliant idea of my friend Hillary, I now am on a rigid star sticker system. Hillary, who is also in throes of finishing her dissertation, started studying her study habits (obviously) and made the observation that a graduate student spends 8+ hours a day trying to write her dissertation, only to get 1 real hour of work done and 7 solid hours of procrastination (thanks for supporting my tenacious lollygagging, The Oatmeal). Hillary reasoned that if she instead works a really productive uninterrupted three hours each morning, she'd actually get more done.

Roasted peaches and cream popsicles http://www.snixykitchen.com/2014/08/31/roasted-peaches-and-cream-popsicles/ http://www.snixykitchen.com/2014/08/31/roasted-peaches-and-cream-popsicles/#comments Mon, 01 Sep 2014 01:34:08 +0000 http://www.snixykitchen.com/?p=7654 Roasted Peaches & Cream Popsicles



Over Labor Day weekend in my hometown, it's customary to throw on a bikini and float down the Sacramento River on inner tubes rented from the liquor store. Others head up to Lake Almanor to soak up their final summer tan (or in my case, cherry red burn). The first weekend of September in Chico feels like a warm summer hug in a way we don't normally get down in The Bay. By this time, the dog days of summer have come and gone, but the sultry heat still begs for a few drippy peaches and cream popsicles to cool you down.

Tropical coconut mango chia pudding http://www.snixykitchen.com/2014/08/25/tropical-coconut-mango-chia-pudding/ http://www.snixykitchen.com/2014/08/25/tropical-coconut-mango-chia-pudding/#comments Tue, 26 Aug 2014 03:57:14 +0000 http://www.snixykitchen.com/?p=7601 Mango Chia Pudding



I've got a case of the Mondays. This recipe comes to you from our bazillion year old laptop that warns me that the startup disk is full when I try to save something and has a noticeable ding just below the keyboard from that time the corner of my iPhone 3 dove into my once-brand new computer (yes, iPhone 3 - that's how old this computer is). The heavy aluminum dinosaur came out of retirement while my younger, slimmer, faster Macbook Pro got shipped off to the doctor first thing this morning. Sniff Sniff.
