Beef, vegetables, and spices wrapped in a flaky crust and baked. Not too hard to make and a good use of a mid-range piece of meat. I had about a 2 lb piece of London Broil (keeping with the British theme), some various veggies, and admittedly used a canister of store dough. Continue reading

I love me some wings! We have a turkey deep fryer that we used for Thanksgiving and since there is so much costly leftover oil, I keep it around and fire it up a few more times. Most of those coincide with football watching and fried finger foods. This was a deviation from classic buffalo or garlic parm which we have made before and as much as I love good ol hot buffalo I welcomed some new flavors. This recipe was cool since it uses fresh ingredients like ginger and garlic. I made it twice and achieved more of a thick sticky glaze the second time around and no dipping sauce was needed.
A simple idea that I gave a try and will regularly insert for a quick meal or snack idea. This would also be a great dish to take to a party. You could use store bought dough or a canister but I made the dough using the same pizza recipe as we used for previous pizzas (Thai Chicken, Tomato Mushroom Pesto, Grilled Crab Pesto) Continue reading
I had some extra summer squash or good ol yellow squash around and wanted to incorporate it into a hearty dinner somehow. Usually I would just saute it and serve it on the side, but I have done that too many times and it is sort of boring. This was a quick and easy way to use something as simple as squash in a new and tasty way.
I am so glad my taste for kale has returned, because it is such a delicious green and so healthy too! One of my favorite ways to have kale is in a cold salad, believe it or not. If I am feeling lazy, I’ll massage my torn-up kale pieces with some lemon juice, olive oil, salt/pepper and parmesan cheese. It’s quick, easy and quite tasty. Massaging the dressing into the leaves helps them wilt slightly and become much more palatable. This is a great option and all, but if I am truly inspired and have the ingredients on hand I make a fresh caesar dressing, which works perfectly with the kale and holds up to it’s bolder flavor and texture.
Good ol cliche Pad Thai. What can I say, it is darn good despite being the most cliche and possibly Americanized Asian dish. Eileen is much more skilled in Asian cuisine (Curry is one of her specialties) than I am but I was inspired to give this old favorite a try. I looked up some recipes and sort of used them as a basis and tailored it to my taste.
Garlic Parmesan Wings are one of our most popular posts. Go figure. I tried to take that concept and apply it to the idea of a Buffalo Chicken Dip with roasted garlic and jalapenos, and a wing sauce base. Debuting at the Superbow – uh I mean big game this easy and deeply tasteful dip was a great success.
I was going to call this a white lasagna but as you will see there are plenty of ingredients that are not white. Alfredo sauce was involved and I called on a previous recipe (which we featured twice) of ours for that. I won’t say that this was that difficult, but it did take a while which was well worth it because it was “one of the best things I made in a while.” That was an actual quote from Eileen about this great dish and I think she was right!
Don’t you just feel healthier looking at this photo? We had some herbs leftover from various recipes and I thought I’d make a yummy, fresh green goddess dressing. I searched the internet for a recipe and it turns out there are seemingly hundreds of variations out there. I basically combined several recipes to cater to the ingredients I had and the style of dressing I was looking for.
