Mango Chicken Stir Fry

If you’d been around me recently you’d know that I’ve been all about hardcore effort recently.  I’m supposed to be on a 30 hour a week schedule, but I’ve been logging somewhere between 42 – 45 hours a week, plus you add in my normal class responsibilities and I feel like I basically do nothing  but work (and some cooking ...

Island Chicken with Mango Black Bean Salsa

Why am I calling this Island Chicken?  Because it’s loosely, extremely loosely based off of what, in my head anyway, makes me think of Caribbean islands, swaying greenery and warm ocean breezes.

Definitely glad it’s Saturday! Usually I’m a better planner and I try to ... Read More »

Anyway, let’s get back to this post though.  I’m not sure if I can properly express the deliciousness of this soup.  The picture ... Read More »

Coq au Vin

Coq au Vin is just one of those delicious dishes that I don’t often allow myself the pleasure of.  Why?  Because it’s definitely not the healthiest dish around with its normal profusion of butter and bacon. This is the perfect dish when you just want one of those warm, comforting meals.  Serve it with some bread and it becomes a ... Read More »
