Quincy Tutoring


Even though I have been successful implementing our social media strategy, we are still having difficulty getting tutors to join our network.  The Quincy Tutor Network boasts a substantial number of tutors in the Greater Boston area, but we need to expand.  Take a moment to watch the video below, and you will see the route that we want to go.  College tutors rock, and it is important for us to reach out to them first.  If you are connected with any colleges and would be willing to help us in our effort, please let me know.  You can contact me via email, eric@quincytutoring.com, and I will be sure to respond ASAP.  I would also invite you to join our LinkedIn Quincy Tutor group.

CEO — Eric Clark
Quincy Tutoring was founded in 2007 by  CEO Eric Clark, while he was still teaching for Quincy Public Schools. The formation of the company occurred once he realized that many students were unable to afford the high cost of private tutoring companies. Eric has a passion for working with all students, especially those who are underserved!  Our primary goal is to provide the residents of Quincy, and surrounding towns, with a comprehensive tutor network.  That vison has expanded, and the Quincy Tutoring Network is a national tutor network. 
If you are a tutor please consider joining our tutor network.  If you are interested in joining, please register for free today!

Why is our network the best?  It’s FREE to join, and you can use our blogging feature to market yourself.
Why is it important to log in regularly?  The search list features the latest person to log in at the top, those profiles get the most views.
Are you interested in joining our tutor network?  Can you help us spread the word?

Tami from Misc Ramblings saved me today...Chili!!!!

Today's post is from my very good friend, Tami at Misc.Ramblings...


I, for the most part, am lazy. If there is a cheap or easier way to do something, I’m going to do it. This is especially true when it comes to cooking. I love to cook, and eat, but I don’t want to spend an eternity doing it.

I developed this chili with myself in mind, and when telling people about it realized that it was so easy even a man could do it. You have to understand my dealings with male cooks, it’s never been good. My first husband burned Jello.

So I say:

If you can brown meat, open a can, and a jar, you too can make chili.

A guy could cook this for a date and really impress her. Here we go!

1 pound ground meat (go crazy with this beef, venison, chicken, turkey, bison, etc.)
2 12oz cans of kidney beans (white, red, or dark red) DO NOT DRAIN
1 16 oz jar of salsa (you decide heat level, mild, medium, hot)
1 28oz can of diced tomatoes

In a stock pot at medium high heat, brown your meat of choice until it is brown throughout. Drain off excess fat, return to pot. Reduce heat to simmer. Add full UN-DRAINED cans of kidney beans, and tomatoes, stir. Add jar of salsa to pot to complete meal.

This can be eaten as soon as it is warmed through, or you can let it simmer for a couple of hours to allow it to soak the flavor into the beans more. Add cheese or sour cream to taste.

See, even a bachelor could cook this. Do you have an easy recipe you would like to share with me?

Frozen Dark Chocolate Custard! Oh, Lord...this is what heaven must be like!!!

Ice cream is my kryptonite, whenever it is around, I am completely weak! This recipe is probably the best chocolate ice cream I've made or eaten. 

Dark Chocolate Frozen Custard
by TheChubbycook.com
5 egg yolks
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons unsweetened Dutch processed cocoa powder
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 1/4 cup milk (I used 2%, it’s what I had)
1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
Heat milk in a sauce pan over medium-low heat until starts to bubble around the edges. In a medium size mixing bowl, sift cocoa powder. Add yolks and sugar. Whisk mixture, it will be thick.

Pour 1/4 cup of milk into the chocolate mixture at a time- whisking to incorporate. Do not pour all the milk in at once- this will cook your eggs. Return the mixture to the sauce pan and put over low heat. You’re going to want to stir this sauce constantly to prevent burning and cook it over low heat to prevent your eggs from cooking too much. Cook the mixture for 5-6 minutes , until it coats the back of a metal spoon.

Pour custard through a fine mesh sieve into a bowl that will be covered with cellophane and leave in the refrigerator for the next six to eight hours.

After the custard has set, remove from the fridge and take off the plastic wrap. Pour in the cream and vanilla. Mix gently. Pour the mixture into the ice cream maker and follow manufactures instructions.  

* Next time I make this I will use castor sugar and dissolve in 1/4c to 1/2c of the heated milk.

Yellow Squah Casserole!

I don't know about you, but I am always looking for different ways to prepare my "staple" veggies.  My list of staple veggies would include zucchini, yellow squash, broccoli and tomatoes. I came across this recipe on AllRecipes.com. It was so good and easy to make...

Yellow Squash Casserole
10 Servings

4 cups sliced yellow squash
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 35 buttery round crackers, crushed
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons butter

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

Place squash and onion in a large skillet over medium heat. Pour in a small amount of water. Cover, and cook until squash is tender, about 5 minutes. Drain well, and place in a large bowl.

 In a medium bowl, mix together cracker crumbs and cheese. Stir half of the cracker mixture into the cooked squash and onions. In a small bowl, mix together eggs and milk, then add to squash mixture. Stir in 1/4 cup melted butter, and season with salt and pepper. Spread into a 9x13 inch baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining cracker mixture, and dot with 2 tablespoons butter. Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes, or until lightly browned.


*I do not have any plain buttery crackers so I used Garlic & Herb crackers. I think it added some flavor but 
next time I will add 1-2 tsp Italian seasoning and a clove of minced garlic.
