I admit, this meal sounds a little weird. But if you’re obsessed with buffalo sauce as I am, but don’t want to waste 1,000 calories on a buffalo chicken sandwich, this flavorful, healthy dish will satisfy even the most devout wing kings. Start with finely chopping equal parts celery, carrot, and onion. How much you […]
Say hello to my vegan friend. I am the furthest from a vegan you could imagine. I love me some meat. But in honor of Meatless Monday (and my vegan friend who makes ridiculously cute dog collars), I cooked up a super hearty, simple, inexpensive dish for you that truly won’t have you jonesing for more meat. Before […]
If you’re broke, it’s very likely you have a can of beans in your pantry. Any kind of beans. Well guess what? You’re about to fancy-fy that can o’ beans and make a really delicious dish. Beans salads are: Super cheap Long-lasting and durable (perfect for a work or travel lunch) Extremely versatile Easy […]
Three of my favorite things to eat in the summertime are grilled meat, corn and peaches. Here’s a lovely, surprisingly light dish that’s perfect for the warm weather ahead and PERFECT for a weekend evening meal. Before we get started, go ahead and get your grill going and water in a large pot boiling. Who […]
I’m not a vegetarian, nor do I ever plan on becoming one. However, there’s something really nice about sitting down to a big plate of vegetables for dinner.
Here’s a nice little ditty for you if you’re a fan of scallops. Scallops aren’t generally the first things that pop in my head when I think “cheap”, but really, if you find them at the right place, they’re very reasonably priced. You could take this recipe and easily turn it into an appetizer, or […]
There are 100 ways to skin a cat, and there are 100 ways to make potato soup; and this is my way. If, like me, it’s the middle of summer in the South, you may be thinking soup sounds gross. Well don’t freak- you’re not bathing in it.
I literally had no idea what the end product was going to be on this. I started cooking and every 3 minutes I changed my mind till it started looking right. If you’ve been cooking for a decade or two, I’m sure you could agree that sometimes that’s just how it goes! It was surprisingly […]
So I keep hearing about this jicama stuff (pronounced hee-kah-mah I believe) all over the place and I finally decided to get some. I honestly didn’t even know where to start or how to cut it but I could say this experiment went very well. After I decided to make slaw I realized I didn’t […]
I’m not experienced in cod. In fact, I’ve got a lot to learn about fish in general, but here’s an attempt to make an Asian style fish that is not sauteed, which is usually how I make it. Cod is a nice whitefish with a creamy, buttery flavor and a great mild fish to experiment […]
Ummm yeah, this was as good as it looks. This beast of an Asian dish was ridiculously easy to prepare, but does take a little vegetable-cutting time, FYI. Feel free to add any meat and any other veggie you want. Oh, and this makes about 2 servings. Go ahead and start making a few servings […]
Remember that cucumber jicama slaw we made? Well you’ll need that for this quick meal. It tastes awesome on just about anything you’d put salsa on, like tacos or nachos- it’s fresh, crunchy and spicy. Warm up some black beans using whatever warming method you prefer. I just pop mine right from the can into […]
