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 […]

Cinco de Mayo

Cinco De Mayo, everyone’s favorite Taco-Rita celebration that falls on the 5th of May. It also happens to be an actual day of celebration with some heritage.

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 […]

Fe-Fi-Pho-Yum

The name began with Fe-Fi-Faux-Pho Then it evolved to Fe-Fi-Pho-Yum. And on my Instagram story the day that I made this I wrote: “Fe-Fi-Pho-Yum, this semi faux pho is not hum drum”. Semi faux pho you may ask? I began with beef broth. I did not make my beef broth from scratch. I did however […]

Steak and Roasted Red Pepper Tacos with Chimichurri and Guacamole

Middle Eastern Feast Night

Okay, first, I know how much information and cooking this is to take in. I mean 3 WHOLE separate elements to make. How will your brain ever be able to overcome this insurmountable task? Done mocking you, moving on. But seriously, it is a decent amount of food. The Israeli couscous is something I have […]

Pork Belly Tacos with Sriracha Mayonnaise and Pomegranate Pineapple Pico de Gallo

Pork Belly. One of my favorite things. Second of course to a whole lot of other things. Okay, so maybe it is not my favorite, but it ranks, okay? Pork belly is super rich, packed with flavor and indulgent textures. And boy oh boy is it tasty. So when I cook with something like pork […]

Sticky Asian Short Ribs

SMLXL Sticky. Ribs. There are few other two word phrases that can evoke a mouth watering response. Ribs= delicious. Sweet, salty and sticky ribs= phenomenal. These sticky Asian ribs are deceptively simple. They are slow cooked and more or less involve combining soy, ginger, lemongrass, brown sugar and garlic in a bowl. Simple and flavorful, […]
