Comeback Kitchen and Taco Recipes

Last night on Comeback Kitchen, we made some interesting dishes. Can I level with you? The retro dish challenge was one of my least favorites to date. We were limited to ONLY the basket ingredients. With the rest of the pantry off limits, there is only so much that one can do. Lets give it […]

Prosciutto, Pea and Goat Cheese Pasta

What do you get when you combine one freezer meal and one comeback kitchen finalist? This dish, duh. Because what else would the result be? Haha. You know, when I first envisioned myself cooking for Tyler and Valerie, making a first impression… I wasn’t picturing reheating something I would never really purchase in the first […]

Peanut Butter Chocolate Pie

Okay so my first go at showing off for Tyler and Valerie on Comeback Kitchen was a freezer meal. Um, yeah, no. The second assignment is cereal?!?! Um no. Its like they don’t know me at all. Luckily I am a resourceful bad ass. and I made it work. Aaaand, I even made it personal. […]

Butternut Squash, Goat Cheese and Black Bean Quesadillas

Bow-Chicka-Wow-Wow. “I hate a unique and delicious quesadilla,” said no one ever. Seriously. There is no part of my soul that doesn’t love good Mexican food.

Cinco de Mayo is a day of remembrance and celebration of the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over the French at the battle of Puebla in 1862. (Thanks Wikipedia. […]

Guac-a-Churri

Have you ever sat and wondered to yourself, what is guacamole and chimichurri had a baby? Of course you have! That is one of the existential life questions that we are constantly left pondering, but always fall short when searching for an answer. Consider the box checked. I have used some pretty high level science […]

Comeback Kitchen!!!!

Okay everyone, it is official! I can announce that a large part of my hiatus is filming related!!! (Also in part to a crazy holiday season of catering and private chef work… but that is not what today’s post is about.) Comeback Kitchen was truly so much fun to film, This group of 8 people […]

Pesto, Smoked Gouda and Apple Paninis

Some great ideas just come to you… like this panini for example. Years ago, my husband asked me to make a panini for him, and this beautiful gem came to light! (Sure the average person probably thinks meat, cheese, bread, maybe a tomato or two. But my brain is an exceptional one. Maybe not so […]
