Welcome to my blog, I cook for leftovers.  Which, I do.  I love to cook, but after so many years in foodservice, have a hard time cooking for only one or two.  It usually takes just as much effort and time to make 3 gallons of gumbo as it does one gallon, or 2 pounds of red beans as it does a half pound.  And, really, it’s so nice to be able to just heat up the leftovers for dinner during the week.  Only problem?  Some people (no names), don’t like leftovers.  So, in my house, there is a considerable amount of effort in transforming leftovers into new dishes.  Sometimes they are not so good, but sometimes, they are awesome!  Did I mention my husband loves to cook also?  A line cook in a former lifetime, he enjoys determining the best way to cook a dish or item.  We both approach the kitchen having done a lot of research on a recipe, and then head into the kitchen with reckless abandon and joie de vivre!  Our neighbor’s and friends benefit on a regular basis from our culinary adventures, and I finally decided that it was about time to record them for posterity, and hopefully, someone else’s benefit.  Please let us know how your experiments turn out.

  1. We must be twins, because I’m OBSESSED with leftovers! I am always taking leftovers and remaking them into something new (I call them “Leftover Makeovers”). Looking forward to reading more from you and seeing what you continue to come up with! Feel free to check out my blog at any time, I write about living an organic lifestyle on a budget- using leftovers is one of my tips 🙂

  2. Thanks for liking my blog! I just started so I’m still finding my way around WordPress. I LOVE leftovers too, it saves you a lot of energy and I firmly believe that some meals taste even better once they have been reheated 🙂

  3. Hi Kathy! I like your blog a lot – you’ve done a wonderful job with it. I’ve recently started a blog of my own. Apparently, great minds think alike! I look forward to continuing to read about your inspirations.

    • Thanks. I almost wish I could change the name, because there really aren’t a lot of specifics on utilizing leftovers. It’s because of my catering experience I find it’s often just as easy to double or triple a recipe as to prepare it for 4. Good luck and enjoy.

      • I know what you mean. I used to be a caterer, and I also spent a lot of years cooking for a family of 7. It is a real challenge to cook for just my husband and I. Maybe you might check out my blog: http://www.leftoverguru.com.
