Thai Basil Chicken

Thai Basil Chicken

I’m on a Thai food and Asian cuisine kick. It’s truly some of my favorite flavor combinations. When it’s about to freeze outside (we had our first frost last night!), I love to use tender garden herbs en masse in tasty meals like tomato basil […]

Slow Cooker Smoked Carnitas

Slow Cooker Smoked Carnitas

Oh man, you guys are in for a treat! These may not be one-hundred percent authentic Mexican but dang are they good. You will NOT be disappointed. This recipe originally comes from my sister so I have to give her credit for the basic rub […]

Confetti Fish Cakes

Confetti Fish Cakes

In an attempt to eat more fish and make it fun for the kids, I tried my hand at forming fish cakes, which are basically a hamburger patty but made with fish. They are not as difficult as one might think. These pretty little patties are full […]

Olive Feta Chicken Roulade

Olive Feta Chicken Roulade

This morning, I broke out my mini-greenhouse and got my garden seedlings planted! That means that spring is here (along with allergies, ugh…) and now I’m patiently waiting for the real weather warm-up to happen so I can play in the dirt everyday and enjoy harvesting […]

Enchilada Casserole

Enchilada Casserole

Apparently, enchilasagna is an actual word. Well, at least it is on the interwebs. It’s simply the combo of enchilada fixings layered in a pan just like a lasagna. That word seems strange so I’m sticking with easy and uncomplicated and just calling this an […]

Marinated Venison Chops

Marinated Venison Chops

Over the river and through the woods, a lovely deer made it’s way into my kitchen, complements of my hunter husband. Every fall my man goes on multi-day excursion to hunt with a group of five other fellas, all of which are my immediate family or […]

Cajun Herb Roasted Cornish Hens

Cajun Herb Roasted Cornish Hens

The first snow of the season (happening now!) always makes me a bit giddy. This can only mean one thing…that the holidays are approaching and spending lots of meaningful time with family is just around the corner.  The hubby and I have been hosting his family for Thanksgiving […]

Chicken White Bean Enchiladas

Chicken White Bean Enchiladas

If I had to survive on only one cuisine for the rest of ever, it would be Mexican. Or maybe Thai. It’s a tossup. They both have one thing in common. Mexican and Thai flavors are both very cohesive and flavorful through the entire dish and have […]

Pork Tenderloin with Tomatillo Sauce

Pork Tenderloin with Tomatillo Sauce

I can’t believe I’m constructing a rooster tail out of chicken wire and feather boas right now. The hubby has a work trip next week which includes attending a costume party so in true form, he wants to go as a giant, ahem, “rooster” except […]

Chorizo Stuffed Peppers

Chorizo Stuffed Peppers

I walked into the kitchen last night expecting to start dinner late since I had been outside enjoying the early evening with my neighbor. What I found was a delightful surprise.  My husband was deep in the trenches of chopping vegetables and spiralizing a zucchini […]
