A great meal to share with great company. Today's Special Request was for Emily Kay who asked for a recipe which would be easy to prepare but still have you looking like a pro in the kitchen. So here is one of my personal favorites which is great for family or company, I would recommend it as a great date night dish paired with a nice bottle of wine.
Lets kick of the weekend with some fun, out of the box cooking, Meatloaf Cupcakes! My Kids loved this and almost did not know what to do with themselves they were so excited. Even the kid in me was having just as much fun making this as they were. Simple meatloaf and mash recipe done a little different and oh what a crowd pleaser for any dinner party or just for the family, enjoy!
After a short but much needed break I'm back, serving you up a Surf & Turf with Garlic Basil Corn Chips and a Cherry Tomato Dip. Doing a combo surf and turf style is always fun especially when it has a twist. This delicious Surf and Turf (Salmon and Filet Mignon) comes with a side of freshly made Corn tortilla chips which adds a flavorful crunch to the whole meal. As always like a lot of the recipes on this website its all about quick and easy to prepare but bold and delicious flavors that make great and memorable meals for your family and friends.
With the holiday season round the corner I thought I should share some of my favorite sweet treat recipes with you all and nothing like decadent 6 layered chocolate cake to get the ball rolling. Multiply layers blend rich, moist, fluffy chocolate cake and filling in this sweet treat which is completed with a silky dark chocolate coating that melts in your mouth with every bite. With baking you need to make sure that you follow the ingredient accurately in order to get the desired results, no skipping steps in this one or eye balling it!
If you love burgers like my family and I then this will be a great one for you. Not sure how I can put into words the feeling you get when you take that first juicy but for all you burger lovers you know exactly what I am talking about. Great pretty much any day of the week and this one is served with a side of freshly made oven baked fries, This burger is a beautiful marry of ground beef, crumbled feta, mushrooms, onions, and red bell peppers which were grilled to perfection. Definitely one to add to your game day tailgate, enjoy :-).
Some of the best dishes are simple in concept but the combination of ingredients and flavors elevate your sense of taste and smell to extraordinary heights. This particular dish does that very thing and really reminds us that sometimes you just need to let the ingredients do the talking. An exquisite Chicken and vegetable stir fry with glass noodles ( sold in any Asian market or big name grocery )
Breakfast today simple, fresh and delicious. Somebody asked me the other day how I keep my figure without hitting the gym at all. A lot of people don't realize that the biggest part of staying healthy, fit and in shape comes down to the food you choose to put in your body. I am not a fitness guru by any means but with the hectic lifestyle I lead, gym is not always on the agenda and I just had to learn how to eat right and that became the easiest way to keep unwanted weight of. Plus I keep pretty active running after my 2 and 4 year old :-) So here is to new beginnings and getting it started with something fresh and delicious!
This dish has what I would like to refer to as LAYERS. Each layer works together to create the perfect meal. Its a little more hands on but once prepared it is so worth the effort as you cut into the succulent Cornish Hen, pile on a roasted potato and mushroom then on the same fork dip all that into the sauce for the perfect bite. Mouthwatering and flavorful, meal time has never tasted so good!
Yes, this is the perfect pork chop recipe for anyone that has never been able to get it quiet right. I am happy to share this one with you because it was the result of many trial and error attempts until I found the one that cooked and tasted amazing every time. The pork chop is definitely the star of this dish but just the same the mashed potatoes and vegetable mix complete and elevate your meal experience to a whole another level. Great for family and friends this is a meal you can be proud of and enjoy even more every time. This is also one of the recipes that will be featured in my up coming cookbook that will be out in time for the holidays so enjoy and let me know what you think!
Since the warm weather is upon us, I have already started taking full advantage, putting anything on the grill every chance I get. Here is a simple but delicious recipe that will get you started on the right foot for sure. The pairing of shrimp and mango works so great together especially if your looking for something light but full of flavor. Enjoy.
