This is the first recipe from another new cookbook I have! The cookbook is from a British fast food restaurant which makes Asian inspired (more particularly Japanese) food. They also have a grocery store which they sell their retail products. All I can say is that after making this first recipe if I lived inRead more
I had a bit of pork tenderloin left over from the recipe I made I my last post. I decide to make a quick stir fry and throw in some shrimp too, why not? The whole dish came together quickly, didn’t use a ton of ingredients and had such great flavor – a perfect busyRead more
This week’s posts are all about soups! Tomato soup may seem like a basic soup but I promise you this take on tomato soup is not basic at all. When I made this soup I was fully expecting to only serve it and not actually have a bowl. But when I tasted it I changedRead more
As my quest to advance my culinary abilities continues I find I have begun to use and like cuts of meat which I might have overlooked before. I use to like to eat chicken breasts, and by chicken breasts I mean the boneless/skinless version. As my culinary abilities continue to improve I have found myRead more
I had tagged a recipe for a salsa in one of my Mexican cookbooks. But the salsa did not contain the typical salsa ingredients. No tomatoes in a salsa?? WHAT??? Well what ended up being created, while called a salsa in the cookbook, I would consider a sauce. A very complex sauce that takes yourRead more
More fish? Why not! Since I am in a self-proclaimed fish kick why not embrace it. This time I am making halibut! Halibut is a lean mild fish. It is pretty firm but also very tender. It is often used in fish and chips (delicious), but I didn’t fry the halibut for this next recipe.
One of the fun things about my blog is there are actually people out there who read my blog! And a few readers even get super into reading my posts. One reader in particular, Jolie, wants to start a Cooking with Rosemary Fan Club and has even joked (or maybe it’s not a joke) about makingRead more
In my last post I gave the spoiler that the next recipe is for a sandwich. It comes from a cookbook that I have had a lot of great recipes from so far…so definitely one to think about purchasing if you are into having cookbooks with really yummy recipes. We had a yard full of hungry swimmersRead more
I love Mexico. We vacation there every year with a group of family and friends. For Christmas I received a new Mexican cookbook so I was eager to start my first recipe from it.
I’ve been on a roll lately with having some super simple (and yummy) recipes. This next one fall right in line. It comes for a new cookbook (well actually Matt gave it to me for Christmas…but I haven’t cooked from it until now – you’ve been warned that I have reached my Christmas cookbooks…which aren’t Christmas food,Read more
I am a carnivore. I love meat. I love beef especially, beef tenderloin being my favorite. Well this next recipe was right up my beef alley. I knew it would be good and it was! Yay for winning!!
My friend Al is one day older than I am. For my birthday I received flowers from someone’s secret admirer (see the photo below) and we went out to Vito’s Pizzeria for a delicious meal with several bottles of wine. The next day I asked Al if he wanted to come over for some grilled chicken forRead more
Last week I helped with a BBQ at work. The menu consisted of shish kabobs, salads and rice. To compliment the meat and veggies on the kabobs I offered to make a few sauces. The sauce “bar” was a pretty big hit!
“This is the best burger I have ever had!” proclaimed my son Hunter after taking his first bite into the burger I gave to him. The kid has consumed a lot of burgers in his life so it really was a compliment. The recipe came from Street Food Diaries by Matt Basile. It is another cookbookRead more
