I don’t know what got into me lately… I think I may be coming down with the flu or something! Seriously, this is the second time in as many weeks that I come up with a vegetarian recipe. As in completely, totally free of any kind of meat! First came this Creamy Mushroom Sauce over Spaghetti Squash, […]
For years, I’d been toying with the idea of getting my hands on one of those beautiful machines that’s known as a Vitamix… But I always resisted the temptation, first and foremost because I wanted to keep my recipes accessible and thought that most people out there did not own a Vitamix and therefore wouldn’t […]
Looks like I’m getting a lot of inspiration from my daughter lately… remember my Classic Meatloaf? That one wouldn’t have come to life had it not been for her. Since she moved out of the house and in with her boyfriend, she’s been cooking a heck of a lot more, and so we often exchange […]
I’m feeling a bit under the weather, today. I’ve been particularly tired, to the point that I almost considered taking an afternoon nap, which is something I just don’t ever do. To me, naps are an awful waste of time and I always feel like half my day has been stolen from me when I wake […]
Creamy Mushroom Sauce over Spaghetti Squash, a vegetarian dish that truly delivers and will have you hooked with the very first bite.
I’ve been loving on squash, lately.. like big time! I just can’t seem to get enough of ’em. Good thing I’m not doing keto anymore, ‘cuz I would’ve kicked myself out of it for sure. Euhm, wait! Now that I think of it, I think I may have quit precisely BECAUSE squash was coming in season. Well, […]
I gotta give it to you, this Slow Cooker Lemon Thyme Chicken is far from being a contender for the Sexiest Looking Chicken Ever contest… and well, poor thing, I can’t say that I really helped it with my photography either. The thing is, it caught me on one of those days, you know: poor lighting, low appetite, […]
Mongolian Beef over Cauliflower Rice – So Quick, So Easy, So DELICIOUS!
I think may be having a bit of a problem… Remember how I recently told you that I’d started working out from home and decided to invest a little bit of time and money in building me a small but somewhat decent home gym? Well… I’ve been completely obsessed with that project, lately. It seems like all I […]
Like I said in my last post, for me, there are only 2 ways to enjoy beef and that is barely cooked at all or cooked for a very long time in its own juice at very low temperatures until it becomes so tender it literally melts in your mouth… Well, since I just shared a […]
If someone asked me today what I would choose to have as my final meal, this Tataki Style Orange Pistachio Surf and Turf would be a serious contender. Like, one that sits really, really high on the list. In fact, I think I can honestly say that this reinvented Surf and Turf deserves a spot on […]
So my daughter calls me up the other day and goes “Mom, would you happen to have a recipe for a Classic Meatloaf? You know, just a good ole’ meatloaf; no tricks, no gimmicks or special tweaks, no hidden treasures, no sneaky organ meat.. Just plain ole meatloaf made with nothing but your standard ground beef.” I searched my […]
If you’re in the mood for a side dish that’s a little different from your usual, look no further: this Oven Roasted Asparagus and Bell Pepper Salad definitely fits the bill. It’s like a super fantastic salad, loaded with all kinds of delicious veggies, except it’s served warm. And you will not believe the amount of flavor that emanates from such […]
Ever since I discovered just how easy it was to smoke stuff in my outdoor grill, I think I’ve become somewhat addicted. So far, I’ve made my very own smoked ham, a great big batch of homemade smoked bacon, quite a few batches of smoked almonds (most of which ended up being turned into smoked almond butter) and now, these insanely […]
