Beef and Mushroom Pesto Kabobs

I’ve been looking at my blog lately and considering the fact that even though I alternate weekly between beef and pork I have way more pork recipes than I do beef.  That’s probably due to the fact that when I cook random meals I tend to go the pork route because I love it. Pork is seriously my favorite protein.  ... Read More »

I’m pretty sure I could feed him nothing but tacos, burritos and other Mexican favs every day and he’d be completely ok with it (the man even always assumed he’d end up marrying a Hispanic woman!).

So I’ve got two midterms next week, one is finance and one in operations management, so basically my week has been consumed by stuff I don’t want to do (i.e. studying). But need to eat + lack of money = me cooking. So if you notice a common theme is the last couple of recipes, it’s because I need quick/easy ... Read More »
