Using a cutting board
The old adage that quality is no match for price still goes a long way in the kitchen.  You can’t beat quality especially with the work kitchen wares receive on a regular basis.  At Annie Housewife we get questions about quality kitchen items from prospective customers.  Our philosophy is that a quality kitchen item will last you a lifetime. It’s something you can purchase once for yourself (and for friends and family) and you won’t have to worry about buying it again.

Salvaging Easter 2013

Posted on April 03, 2013 | 1 comment

Pickled FishThere are many holidays that make me miss home. Easter is definitely one of them, and I have tried to do something special every year since I have been living in NYC. This year, because of my commitment to the Easter dinner at our church, I completely forgot about Easter in my own home, or doing something special here. It's easy to forget when you have a husband who is not really fazed about holidays, and no kids to start traditions with.

What's for dinner?? An Easter Feast!

Posted on March 30, 2013 | 0 comments

Risen easter imageI skipped What's for Dinner?? last week as I was so busy volunteering at my church. Advent Hope Seventh-Day Adventist Church, hosts an annual Easter Dinner, and this year I was asked to help out with the food. They picked a Middle-Eastern/Mediterranean style cuisine and as much as it was a lot of work, it definitely was fun too. We got to go to a restaurant to try the cuisine first, and then decide on the menu:

Couldn't leave the dads behind...

Father and childAfter we did our list of favorite Housewife blogs, we couldn't leave the Dad's behind. It's my guilty pleasure, which I got into by subscribing to one after a friend posted an article from one of them on Facebook. I was hooked, and since then I've subscribed to a few others too. I haven't read ALL dad blogs, but here are a few of my favorites, hope you enjoy them too:

Happy 1st Birthday Pepper!

Posted on March 01, 2013 | 0 comments

 Ok, confession: today is not really her birthday, but because she was adopted, and they didn't know her exact birthday, we chose one. We figured out that she must have been born in March, so I chose my grandmother's birthday, the 1st, for her. It felt right somehow.

I can't believe my baby is a year old! She's grown so quickly. I guess that's the thing with a dog, they're in your life for a shorter time than a child, even though they feel like one. She's not a puppy anymore, but she'll always be my "Pup-pup" and I can't imagine my life without her, for many reasons, but here's a few...

What's for dinner?? Chicken Curry!

Posted on February 26, 2013 | 0 comments



 This is probably one of my favorite meals. Once you have the hang of making a basic curry (and by this, I mean a curry that ordinary people would love; we're not trying to impress anyone in Bombay), it's a great meal that's easy and convenient to make. I often turn to this, when I don't feel like making anything too complicated. It's great on a cold night like tonight too. 

You can marinate the chicken ahead of time, by adding the chicken, a tbsp olive oil, 2 tbsp garlic and ginger paste (depending on how many pieces of chicken you're doing), salt, pepper and 1 tbsp curry powder to a large Ziploc bag. Marinate for a few hours or overnight, but remove from the fridge an hour or two before cooking to bring to room temperature. Alternatively if you did not have time to marinate it, just season the chicken with salt and pepper. Here's the recipe:

Pepper in the snow

With the last snow storm, Pepper was the only one happy about all the snow. You'd swear she was a husky, the way she runs around in it (although she is a 'pavement special' - so who knows!). So here she is in her new coat:)

What's for dinner?? Rosemary and Soy Sauce Lamb Chops with Sweet Potato

Posted on February 20, 2013 | 0 comments

Let me just say up front, that I probably won't be doing this every night, but I will endeavor to keep you posted on what I'm cooking these days. Complete with recipes and pictures. And I'll try to do it as often as possible. 

So tonight we have Lamb chops on the menu. This is a family favorite, my husband's actually, and usually I make it a certain way, with certain sides (Roasted vegetable Couscous), but tonight I thought I'd change it up a bit, and try something new.  So I added sweet potatoes to the dish with the lamb and served it with rice instead. I also steamed some corn on the cob, and made a green salad. It was delicious! So here's the recipe:
