It is very rewarding to make a perfect and gorgeous roasted chicken. You almost don’t want to cut into it because it looks so perfect! But when you do…yum!
I love a good roasted potato recipe. This next recipe is quite easy and of course tasty. It makes a perfect side dish…or a main course should you choose to eat just a bowl of potatoes as I did.
Show of hands… who is over winter? I know I am and can’t wait for spring to finally roll in. But while we are still in winter why not make a big pot of tasty soup.
A pretty easy, quick and inexpensive shellfish to cook are mussels. Mussels are pretty versatile too. You can steam them in a variety of liquids – juice, wine, beer, coconut milk… in this next recipe I use sake!
Cooking a whole fish is pretty easy. If you told me 5 years ago I would regularly cook whole fish I would think you were crazy. It seems so intimidating to buy and then cook – how to even cook it? Well this next post will give you an easy way to cook a wholeRead more
Every so often Matt and I make a charcuterie board for dinner. A bunch of meats and cheeses, pickles, olives, mustards, etc. This next recipe will make a great addition to any charcuterie board.
As my fridge starts clearing out and it is probably a day past when I should have gone grocery shopping I start getting creative how to use up the bits of food which remain. I hate throwing food away. This particular day I made use of the bits left in my produce drawer: half an onion, part ofRead more
Sadly, this next post I only have one photo. I make and come up with a lot of recipes during the course of the week. Many of which even though they are good I only make one time. It is the great recipes which I choose to blog about and make again. I was expecting this next recipeRead more
One of the things I loved growing up was the nights we would have breakfast for dinner. It was always nights my dad had a meeting or something keeping him from being home for dinner. I don’t think he enjoyed breakfast for dinner as much as the rest of the family. One of the things I love asRead more
I love potatoes. I could eat potatoes for every meal. There are so many things you can do with them. I would start listing idas off but I think it would start to sound like Bubba from Forest Gump. When I opened up my next cookbook on my shelf I was excited to see I’d beRead more

The Superbowl is coming this weekend, no I don’t watch sports, yes I had to Google to see when the Superbowl was, but I do enjoy a really great chicken wing. So I thought it was the perfect time to share this recipe which goes way beyond the expected chicken wing.
I am recently re-discovering pork chops. I never really cared for them growing up. But now as an adult I am finding them tastier than I remember them ever being. So I decided to try out stuffing a pork chop with gremolata – a parsley and lemon condiment. The results were VERY tasty!
A while back I made kimchi. I had been thinking of ways to include the kimchi – a staple in Korean cuisine – made from fermented vegetables, typically mostly napa cabbage. A new cookbook I bought was able to help me find a way to use that kimchi in a delicious way!
I feel like I am a bit late getting on the quinoa train. I never really had much exposure to eating it and until recently I have never really cooked it. But now that I have “discovered” quinoa I see a wide range of possibilities to incorporate it into my cooking.
