Incredible Enchiladas

Incredible Enchiladas by Walter Blevins

The best enchiladas I’ve ever had came from a place called Sadies in Albuquerque, New Mexico. This iconic restaurant is big and every night it’s a hopping place. New Mexico style enchiladas are “stacked” rather than rolled with an enchilada on the bottom and layers of filler topped by sauce and enchiladas 3 or 4 high.Then the…

Homemade Apple Crisp

Homemade Apple Crisp by Walter Blevins

OK, folks, Cheap Bastid hasn’t been around in a couple of weeks. That’s because I am now employed again as a bastion of the automotive industry selling cars.Anyhow, before I have to hit the shower and get my game face on, I thought I’d post a recipe. It’s one I’ve “developed”, “synthesized”, “plagiarized” or created a couple of…

White Chili or Chicken and Bean Soup

White Chili or Chicken and Bean Soup by Walter Blevins

Living for 30+ years in the Upper Midwest gave me an appreciation for “stick to your ribs”, “old fashioned” slow cooked comfort food. It’s a “fix and forget” meal which you can’t resist the temptation to fuss around with all day, making repeated trips to the slow cooker to taste, burn your lips and tongue and minutely adjust…

Homemade Lasagna

Homemade Lasagna by Walter Blevins

Everybody’s got a recipe for lasagna I would imagine. For years I just did the recipe on the back of the box. Now I pretty much do it out of my head. I don’t try to get fancy. And this isn’t a recipe that my Great Grandma used to cook in Sicily or Naples or anything like that. It’s just good old basic Lasagna with 3 cheeses and…

St. Patricks Day Fried Cabbage

St. Patricks Day Fried Cabbage by Walter Blevins

It’s Saint Patrick’s Day “season” where once a year everybody channels their inner Irish, wears green and partakes of Corned Beef and Cabbage. We put on this year’s broadcast of “A Quiet Man”—seemingly the definitive movie about Ireland starring that famous “Irish” actor John Wayne—and enjoy our celebration.But how many of us…

Cheap and Easy Calzone

Cheap and Easy Calzone by Walter Blevins

We love to kick back on the sofa on Friday nights, paper plates of pizza on our laps, feet up on the edge of the coffee table to watch some TV and relax—enjoying one another’s company and feasting on some tasty pizza piled with meat, vegetables and cheese. No matter what other kind of food a person likes, pretty much everybody likes…
