Tasty easy weeknight pasta

One of the dishes my mom made pretty regularly growing up was a copy cat recipe for Olive Garden’s Capellini Pomodoro, a pasta dish with a sauce consisting of olive oil, garlic, diced tomatoes and basil. It was a great summer pasta dish, not to heavy with a nice light flavour. Since yesterday turned outRead more

Dinner on the table in Minutes

Now that I am “cheffing” as a profession some may think I now make elaborate meals every night of the week.  Well what I have found in actuality is I am spending less time in my own kitchen, cooking less for myself and more for others.  So I am still all about quick fast mealsRead more

Hello Chaos!

The underdog

well… when I switched careers I had no idea how busy I would be in my new career right from the beginning. I thought I would have some time to get organized, get my website revised and slowly begin to gain clients. Instead can’t believe the amount of interest I’ve had in my cooking…so here’sRead more

Ginger Braised Chicken

The next recipe is kind of comforting dish. There is a lot of ginger in it and I think that all adds to the overall “comforting” factor of the dish.  Ginger is not only used for its taste, it’s said to help treat various disorders from nausea to arthritis.  I always have a knob ofRead more

It’s been a while…

Hey, remember me? Rosemary who cooks a lot.  I can forgive you if you don’t, I have been SO busy I didn’t post a new recipe all last week!  That was first…and hopefully a last.  With the holiday’s approaching and some last minute airline tickets to use up, it’s been a while since I haveRead more

Forget Chinese Delivery!

As much as I love to eat Asian food I have never made a dumpling, wonton or potsticker from scratch. It has always seemed like SO much work, especially when I can easily order delicious dumplings/wontons/potstickers from my Chinese delivery restaurant.  But in the interest in expanding my culinary ability I decided it was timeRead more

Gluten Free Lettuce Wraps

Being sad that the weather is turning cold 🙁 (our pool was just closed yesterday – I was really hoping summer would rally!) I was craving something “summer-y” yet warming.  Lettuce wraps seemed like the perfect dinner to satisfy both of my cravings.

Ahi Tuna – super fast, super tasty!

I seem to be in a bit of seafood kick right now. In my last post I made a super easy clam recipe and really hope some readers do try that recipe.  Not only is it good but it’s a sense of accomplishment to use an ingredient which can be intimating.  This next recipe usesRead more

Easy, Good and Fast!

I really like recipes that are easy and fast.  Of course if they are also tasty I consider the recipe to be the trifecta.  This next recipe was one of those.  It came from a cookbook that I have a had a lot of success with.  The cookbook isn’t as pretty as many of myRead more

Perfect Day for Soup

Let's eat!

Brrrrr….it’s super cold out.  We are smack dab in the middle of January and winter temperatures finally decided to come, full fledge!  This particular night Matt was traveling so Maike came over for dinner and a movie.  I was very happy to see the next recipe tagged was a soup recipe.

RAMEN!!!

RAMEN!

Full disclosure.  I love ramen.  I love to make ramen and I love to eat ramen.  This was not my first or last time making ramen.  It is complicated – I equate it to chemistry.  You have to have your measurements correct and your temperatures dead on.  Due to the complexity of the recipe IRead more

Steak Sandwich and Pickled Carrot Slaw

I will start out by saying that this next recipe had a lot to live up to.  It came from the cookbook Street Food Diaries which last time I made a recipe from the cookbook Hunter proclaimed it was the best burger he ever ate (you can read all about it here).
