What to Cook When the Grocery Stores are Out of…

I went to the store last week for a few things. You know, the usual, peanut butter, half & half, a gallon of water (for my cubicle at work for making coffee) and quinoa. I came home from the store with ONE of those things, peanut butter! All those other aisles were pretty much empty. There was sparkling water, and some of the pricy electrolyte water in bottles. Other than that, not much there! I remember the water crisis of 2014 here in Toledo and not being able to buy water because the shelves were empty, but I’ve never seen entire isles cleared out of food or paper products. I didn’t go down every aisle, and they weren’t wiped completely out of all food items, but it was slim pickings!

I know we’ll all probably need to get creative with what we have during this coronavirus crisis, so I wanted to put together a quick list of easy recipes for you. Lots of these are made from leftovers, a few ingredients or even scraps! Some quick and easy, some will use up leftovers, but all are delicious!

Grain Bowls & One of the Funniest “Food” Blog Posts Ever!

I’ve been told several times to try a grain bowl from Panera. I like Panera for lattes, breakfast soufflés, and pastries, but lunch? No thank you. But I was intrigued by the Mediterranean grain bowl. I haven’t had one yet, but I did some searching on Pinterest. I saw a grain bowl with blueberries and quinoa that looked amazing so I looked in my fridge and threw everything I had (well, not everything) in a bowl and voilà, a “grain bowl” was born!

The Blog so Far…

Hollie | eBookFoodie

I started this blog a year ago, after several years of going home from work, day after day to an empty house. I was tired of cooking wonderful meals that I ate by myself, packing up the leftovers up for my husband. In December ’18 I decided to start this blog as a hobby, to quiet a nagging voice inside my head to be creative again, and to be productive. It went live January 2019! I did several things I never thought I’d have the courage to do in addition to this blog! I started using Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram. I started posting on Facebook and went to two WordPress events. I’ve always been hesitant to post about myself or my life, but when it comes to recipes and books, I find that I enjoy it!

Family Recipes! Grandma’s Spinach & Meatballs!

Well, actually it’s my weeknight Instant Pot version of Grandma’s Spinach & Meatballs.

Spinach and Meatballs in Pyrex fridgie

It all started several years ago, at least a decade ago, on Thanksgiving, or maybe it was Easter??? Anyway, I woke up sick as a dog… like fever, laying on the couch with an ice bag on my head sick. Husband called his parents to let them know we wouldn’t be going to family dinner, even though I told him to go ahead without me. That’s true love folks! I don’t recall the conversation he had with his mom, but it required pen and paper, and prompted him to go to the store.
