Cheesy Southwestern Meatloaf Muffins

My friend jokingly told me that I like “old people food”. I’ll admit it, I like meatloaves and casseroles and cabbage rolls (just to name a few).  There’s a reason these types of dishes have been around forever, it’s because they’re delicious! But really, it’s just a matter of how a person defines comfort food.   And unfortunately sometimes our traditional ... Read More »

Spicy Pepper Beef Stir Fry

As I was setting up the new site design, I realized how long it’s been since I’ve featured a recipe using beef.  In fact, the last post was from August 29th and was this tasty Argentinian Steak with Chimichurri Spiked Vegetables. I cook beef one to two times a month.  We’re not against beef dishes at all, but at home ... Read More »

Argentinian Steak with Chimichurri Tossed Vegetables

I don’t think it’s hit me yet that I’m officially done with school. I mean, I suddenly have all this time but it’s almost like I’m on Spring Break and I’m going to get dragged back into another course. While I do believe that there’s always opportunities for learning throughout our day and lives, just knowing that I don’t have ... Read More »

Southwest Meatball Skillet

Ugh, pretty sure I have senioritis.   Is that even possible to have in grad school?  I’m just done. I don’t know; I’m simply dreading the new class that’s starting on April 30th.  It’s funny, one month of only taking one class instead of two and I’m completely spoiled! But anyway, let’s talk food.  I’m pretty sure my love of Southwestern/Mexican ... Read More »

Faux Pho

I’m back! It’s been so long since my last post and I apologize.  I got super sick, and then my family had a late Easter so I spent all of Saturday and Sunday in a cooking extravaganza (plus doing some much-needed cleaning). So basically I spent Monday completely wiped out and we ended up going out to dinner. But here’s ... Read More »
