cabbage soup bowl

Spicy Chicken & Cabbage Soup

I love fall. From the gorgeous colors of the leaves to the cold hardy vegetables. Although most of these vegetables are available all year around, I tend to gravitate to them when they taste their best, and are in season. Cabbage and kale are the exception. Here’s why for me. Cabbage and kale are great in soups, coleslaw, and eaten...

bowl spinach and paneer

Spinach & Kale with Paneer

The dark green color of the sauteed spinach and kale is brightened by the lightly pan fried pieces of fresh cheese. A visually stunning dish as it is delicious, Saag paneer is my favorite Indian dish! Traditionally made with just spinach, I added baby kale leaves to this recipe of. The kale gives a slight acidity to the greens, so...

deviled eggs side

Bacon & pepper jack deviled eggs

These things are insane!  If there was any wonder deviled eggs are a favorite in this household. While Thanksgiving was pretty epic at Emery’s mom’s house, and filled with all the traditional foods that I love, we also were treated with a few Southern dishes too, such as lima beans, corn pudding, and chocolate pecan pie to name a few....

Beets and squash

Oven roasted Butternut Squash and Beets

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.  Is there any wonder, with so many delicious things to eat? This year we had a great time in the company of family and friends.  We went to Emery’s mom’s house, and dinner was delicious!  She had started cooking at 5:30 am, so there was quite a spread.  From turkey to pie we had it...

beef and mushroom

Beef and Mushroom Soup

Heartwarming and perfect for the cold weather we’ve been having. This recipe for beef and mushroom soup has a real beefy flavor with carrots, celery, and onions to round it out. Typically when Emery makes his beef and mushroom soup he starts with a lot of the same ingredients, however we differ in one ingredient as well as the execution....

sardines toast

Sardines Toast

Salty, fishy, and peppery: sardines are not only tasty but good for you, and that’s why we decided to incorporate them in our diet. It all started when we decided to go on a diet together.  While we can do things separately, it makes it much easier to diet together.   After all, I’m not going to eat a whole sleeve...

Oven roasted chicken

  We’ve been missing in action.  Action traveling, surgery, and now recovery.  This is my first post in around a month. I thought it would be great to start with something that we love. Traditional, delicious, and so easy to make: we’re talking a oven roasted chicken that is a beautiful golden brown, and is better than the rotisserie chicken that...

barbacoa tacos

Barbacoa Breakfast Tacos

What did I find during a recent trip to my local grocery store?  Two gorgeous London Broil steaks on sale weighing in between 2-3 pounds each.  While I didn’t have a plan for them yet I couldn’t pass them up.  Afterall, if I couldn’t think of anything creative to do with them, then I could always throw them on the...

cream of chix soup

Cream of Chicken with Roasted Garlic Soup

The weather has been perfect here in Virginia the last two weeks.  It’s beautiful outside.  Fall is definitely in the air. One of the things I love most is soup, and with it becoming cooler outside I couldn’t think of a better time to start getting soup and stew recipes together.   Emery must have been thinking the same thing,...

sweet potato bacon pasta

Creamy sweet potato and bacon pasta

Unusual?  Just a little.  Tastes good?  Absolutely! I’ve noticed that we’re starting to have cooler nights and mornings here in Virginia.  This makes me happy because I feel Fall fast approaching.   Fall is my favorite time of year, and it gives me tons of inspiration to make fall type dishes that not only use seasonal vegetables like sweet potatoes,...

butter chicken over rice and nan

Indian Butter Chicken over Spiced Rice

While I love Indian food I’ve never had butter chicken before.  It’s one of the most recognizable Indian dishes, approachable to Westerners, and fairly easy to make.  Until the other night I had no idea what my life had been missing. Driving home from work is a pretty long drive.  I was starving, and hadn’t had anything to eat since...

quinoa 1

Cilantro and Lime Quinoa

Seasoned rice with lime and cilantro? Yes, please! Change that to quinoa and I’ve got something special. In case there was any wonder I love Chipolte! Chipolte restaurants are the best. When I used to live back home in the Washington, DC area they were everywhere, and I ate there all the time. So, when I moved to Central Virginia,...

rice and beans 4

Red Beans and Rice

Red beans served over hot rice is not only a New Orleans staple, but a world wide recognizable dish of Louisiana. My recipe for red beans and rice uses ham hocks, andouille sausage, and lots of Louisiana love. When I was young we lived in an area called Metairie-Kenner in the Jefferson parish right outside of New Orleans, and part of...

Caramel apple cake forked

Caramel Apple Cake

This caramel apple cake is amazing!  Like, I can’t stop eating it crazy good amazing. That was just on the first day, since it’s been in the refrigerator and gotten cold I want another piece every time I look in the fridge. It’s loaded with apples and caramel, but let’s not forget about the creamy frosting.  Yep!  I said creamy...

soba noodles 206

Soba Noodles with vegetables and scallion sauce

  Cold soba noodles with a Asian inspired sauce tossed with blanched vegetables?  Why, yes! Perfect for summer, too.  It’s been a little less summery around here lately, but theses noodles are refreshing even in the air conditioning. Traditionally soba noodles are served cold in Japan, so I thought I’d stick with serving them the same way.  If it’s not...

bread 186

Easy no knead crusty bread

Who’s an awesome baker?  Umm… I wish!  I’m definitely getting better, but this thing makes me look like a professional! This loaf a bread is crusty, crunchy on top, and perfectly perfect inside. Plus, I didn’t have to knead it, which is awesome!  Especially since I have carpal tunnel syndrome and it makes it a little bit hard to do....

rice salad 258

Rice, black bean, and corn salad

Holy smokes is this refreshing!  With the lime juice and the red wine vinegar it just feels like summer time in my mouth.  All I’m thinking is this would go excellent with a little chicken on the barbie, and a margarita! In case you aren’t aware I’m trying to health it up a bit.  Recap… I hurt my back, feeling...

thai chicken noodle163

Thai Chicken Noodle Soup

Asian. Food. Favorite.  These three words usually go together in my mind, heart, and taste buds.  I definitely think I have a problem here.  Emery caught me talking to the pot of this wonderfully lemon grass, ginger, and garlic infused broth.  It wasn’t pretty. Sing songy talking me telling it that I couldn’t wait to eat it so it would...


Quick Beef Chili

Super beefy.  I want some more right now.  When I say quick for chili I really mean 2 hours.  I wish I could take the credit for this recipe, but Emery made it for us, and I’m so glad that I can share it with you. I know chili is usually for Fall or winter, but there was something about...
