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.
I’m excited to tell you about what I had for dinner tonight. It was really good. I used to hate mushrooms and I’m so thankful I love them now because without them, this dish just wouldn’t be the same. Cut up some onion and toss it in a hot, greased pan along with some salt. […]
Diet Blog posted a nice article about recent studies about diets and foods we should/shouldn’t eat. I particularly like some of the results, like how olive oil really IS good for you. The study on how eating fries makes you gain weight was real shocker! Sarcasm. Anyway, here’s the article. Thanks Diet Blog!
I want you to listen to me right now. This is one of the best tasting things I’ve ever cooked. Now, don’t be intimated, and go cook it. This is a dish I always see chefs making and I had never had it before. So here we go!
I don’t know about you but most of the time I’m not in the mood to sit down to a huge massive sweet potato without a junk load of butter and brown sugar. Seeing as that pretty much takes away all nutritional benefits, I decided to make a potato into fries so it’s a tad more interesting.
Here’s a thought: Don’t go to the grocery store after you get your paycheck and when you’re hungry… at the same time. This meal is still relatively cheap, but it could have been a lot cheaper if I didn’t get such a nice piece of salmon. This is the most expensive meal I’ve posted on […]
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.
Yet again, I struck gold at the local farmer’s market by purchasing these lovely mini red potatoes. This beautiful, tasty side dish looks absolutely beautiful on your plate next to the main course, and this is as easy as they come! By the way, if you can’t get to farmer’s market, your grocery store may […]
DUDE. This was awesome. It may look a little dry and boring in this picture but believe you me, the flavors were packed with a punch. I’m going to try to make a better effort to give you a heads up of the ingredients you’ll need to make this. I don’t measure stuff- sorry. I […]
Here’s a fancy shmancy little meal to impress that special someone. In my case, that special someone was myself, but whatever. So, cut up a potato, toss it in a splash of olive oil, salt, pepper and rosemary, and space the pieces out on a pan. Heat the oven to broil and stick it in. […]
Hmm…so as I look in my fridge I see I have a piece of chicken, an apple, and like one egg left to my name. Ok, this should be interesting. My first thought was to combine the apple with bread to make a sweet and savory stuffing for the inside of the chicken, then breading […]
A few weeks ago I made Thai sweet potato chicken soup. This recipe has a lot of the same ingredients, but a very different texture and flavor. Instead of using coconut milk and whipped sweet potatoes as a base, I used sweetened coconut and water as a base. This version is much lighter, and much faster […]
Ya’ know those dishes that have so many ingredients in it, you’re not sure which ones to highlight in the title? This is one of them! With sweet potatoes, carrots, chicken, onions, ginger, garlic, coconut milk and spices, this soup is sure to have you saying, “Hmmm…. this is one of the weirdest and best […]
This may not be a rush-home-from-work-and-feed-the-family kind of dish, but perfect for entertaining and a different way of eating sweet potatoes. I’ve got to give Emeril the credit for the idea but I’m not a fan of stealing recipes… so this is all a lovely experiment on a low budget. Start by cooking a sweet […]
