Good Morning World!

Looks Wonderful.

Welcome to Rosemarie's Kitchen

On this day in 1903 near Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, two brothers with big dreams let their lofty ideas take flight. On September 24, 1959, President Dwight Eisenhower declared December 17 to be Wright Brothers Day. His proclamation invited the people of the United States to observe this day with appropriate ceremonies and activities. I must confess, I cannot recall a single celebration. I’m sure in certain circles, this is a very big day. Their 12 second flight was proof positive that the human spirit was meant to soar and dreamers are the pilots of that spirit.

Be Willing to Struggle

A Good Reminder.

~Golda Meir


What better way to start a Tuesday morning than a cast-iron skillet filled with a hot, sizzling spinach and mushroom omelet with cheese?


It will give you energy to last your whole long morning,

give you inspiration to move a whole room full of furniture, give stamina to redesign

and restyle your living quarters…


This is how I motivate myself when I have an enormous task facing me.

Shrimp & Spaghetti — Cooking from Books

Both of us would love this.

My Meals are on Wheels

During these seemingly amalgamating days of self-quarantine (a.k.a. lock-up), I’m constantly finding food that’s either going bad or needs using up. I attribute this regrettable position to buying more than we need out of fear of running out or of an item’s becoming unavailable. Something we never did when, in happier days, we food shopped […]

Baked Fried Chicken with Mashed Potatoes and Gravy (KFC copycat)

Oh I wish I could eat this. Yummy

one foodie and his food

I cut out all fast food about 15 years ago. Not because it didn’t taste good but because my metabolism decided to slow down on me. What that means is I haven’t had good old Kentucky Fried Chicken in a long time. I suppose that was okay but what I really missed was the mashed potatoes and gravy. Rich, buttery, flavorful and even somewhat decadent for fast food. I’m not sure what made me start looking for copycat recipes but I was VERY happy to find a few, actually a lot of them out there.

The baked fried chicken inspiration mostly came from Kitchen Dreaming and their Easy Oven Fried Chicken. The mashed potatoes and gravy came from RecipeTinEats and their Mashed Potatoes and Gravy.

This all turned out great. The fried chicken but baked was really good. By adding the baking powder and spraying with non-stick cooking…

Danny and I both love oysters.

Today’s Menu: Fried Oysters w/ Baked Potato and Texas Toast (Lite)

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Big change in the weather today. 72 degrees, rain showers, and cloudy out today. After Breakfast I did a load of laundry. Then I cleaned the house, dusted and vacuumed. Next I cleaned the fridge. Done for today! For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Oysters w/ Baked Potato and Texas Toast (Lite).

Fried Oysters, Baked Potato, and Texas Toast, one of my favorite meals! As usual I used Hilton’s Fresh Farm Raised Pacific Willapoint Oysters, my favorite. To prepare them; Place shucked oysters in a colander rinse in cold water and drain. Dredge drained Oysters in the Flour, then Egg Beater’s, and then in Panko Crumbs seasoned with Sea Salt and Pepper (coating each oyster thoroughly). Set aside to dry at least 1/2 hour. An easy…

Feast of the Little Rose

There is a lot of great STUFF in this one post.

Welcome to Rosemarie's Kitchen

It’s been a little while since we’ve talked faith. With all this pandemic and social unrest and fear-driven distractions, faith should be in the forefront. For many of us on a personal level, faith has been center stage even if we haven’t been vocal about sharing it.

A Sizzling Soft Taco Day — Rosemarie’s Kitchen

Yummy. I like the “soft Taco Day” idea.

This is a wonderful post. Pleace check it out.

Ratatouille is a bright and chunky summer vegetable stew, rich with olive oil and fragrant with garlic and fresh herbs.

Let’s start with some history and background.

Ratatouille originated from Provence, a region in the south of France near the Mediterranean Sea, the area around present day Nice. The word ‘Ratatouille’ actually comes from the French term “touiller,” which means to toss food.

Ratatouille is traditionally a peasant food but is now a culinary dish served in the top restaurants and many top chefs have their own special recipe that regularly receive praise from critics.

When I think of this dish I remember the movie Ratatouille noting that this dish did gain recognition and popularity as a result of the animated Disney movie in 2007 that won an Oscar the following year. Although the dish was introduced to the less-food-conscious, the recipe featured in the film was far more…
