Irish Beer Chicken

To finish out beer month as much as I wanted to create a good ol’ Southern fried chicken dish and somehow use the beer I thought lets try to go a little healthier. All I was craving this weekend was chicken, vegetables and biscuits. And that is what I got! John is not the biggest chicken …

Southwestern Hash

This was the other impromptu dish I came up with when John was away last weekend. It was dinner time and I had been mopping floors and cleaning all day. I had planned all weekend for Saturday night to be my night out to grab an early dinner with my Kindle. But in actuality I …

Sesame Soba Noodles

My menu for the week is determined by who I cook for. If it is just John and me then the sky is the limit. I have cooked a lot of my specialties for Supper Club on Wednesday nights, but I hadn’t cooked any Asian dishes until this week. On the menu was PF Changs Mongolian Beef, Fried Rice …

Eggplant & Goat Cheese Sandwiches

I am always trying to think of side dishes to make when I do a pasta dish. When I saw Giada De Laurentiis Grilled Vegetable, Herb, and Goat Cheese Sandwich I thought I would do a spin off of Eggplant Parmesan meets her sandwich.

We got to see John’s family, my family …

Sundays in the Kitchen

Pesto is Italian for “pounded” meaning it used to be made my mortar and pestle but I love making this uncooked sauce in my mini food processor. It is traditionally basil, pine nuts, parmesan, garlic and olive oil. Now don’t get me wrong the classics are always the best but when you can find other alternatives it’s …
