Chinese food can be one of the healthiest options in your kitchen. It’s full of vegetables and protein, and you can put whatever ‘you’ like in it. If you don’t like bell peppers, don’t use them. Maybe you like bamboo shoots. Great, use two cans. The point is, making Chinese at home is much easier than most people think it is.
If you asked anyone what my favorite dessert would be, I have no doubt they would tell you cheesecake. I see it as the perfect finale, the masterpiece of the dessert world, the pinnacle of sweets. Only problem is – it takes so long to make. But as some ancient philosopher said, "Good things come to those who put in the work", or something to that effect. When it comes to dessert, I couldn't agree more.
Like fish but not too much fish? This recipe is the blended dining option you should consider the next time someone says, "Let's make fish tonight."
One of the most satisfying recipes in my collection, IMO, is Chile Verde. I really love, love this recipe because it's simple, different, makes my house smell amazing, and of course the light, bold flavor, which is perfect for any season.
This recipe is dedicated to my dear friend, Jennifer. See you in the kitchen soon. 🙂
This chili recipe is one of the heartiest meals in my recipe collection. I developed the recipe over time as I tried various tastes and textures. I was so pleased with this version that it’s nearly the only chili recipe I use any more. Caution, there is a slowly intensifying burn associated with this recipe, hence the name. For a sweeter version, remove the ground red pepper and double the brown sugar portion. If you’re looking for a chili contest recipe, there’s a very strong chance this recipe is your winner.
Whenever I dine out at a Tex-Mex restaurant, I tend to select some type of chicken enchilada. There's a lot of very good Mexican cuisine, but enchiladas is my favorite. That said, I've been making these enchiladas for years and years. It was one of the first recipes my mother taught me though I've made some changes. I hope you enjoy this, one of my favorite dishes.
This simple stir fry recipe is bound to pique your curiosity. Whether you’re a home cook or a seasoned chef, you’re bound to be delighted. The succulent tender chicken, paired with healthy asparagus and the crisp crunch of water chestnuts, will thrill your taste buds.
Pasta will forever be my weakness. I like several varieties of Italian pasta but homemade baked pasta is my Kryptonite; that and chocolate, but I digress. I really love this recipe because you can really get into it with the meatballs. There’s something about mixing with your hands that I find enjoyable. This recipe takes a little longer than most, but it’s absolutely worth it; great for kids or having a couples dinner and wine night.
