Quick Potato Crusted Tilapia with Butter Roasted Carrots

I’ve been all for the quick meals recently, which is why I love using fish as the protein.  Unfortunately, when you’ve got a seafood hating husband, I can’t really push the envelope too far in fear of a dinner time revolt. I’ve got to give him credit though; he’s a good sport about trying anything I serve but the minute ... Read More »

Pork, Swiss Chard and Potato Adobo

And it’s freezing again!  It’s below 0 with the windchill and I was almost blown away walking into work.  I literally had to freeze and stop moving in order to brace myself against the wind.

Slow Cooker Cajun Chicken and Okra

Congee / Jook (Slow Cooker)

So on Monday I featured the Lechon Manok, or Filipino Roasted Chicken I made for my mom’s 50th birthday.  I actually roasted 4 chickens to feed everyone and make sure there was enough leftovers for lunches (plus it’s a fiesta – it’s required that you have a lot of food!)  On a random side note, learn from my lesson, when ...

Italian Turkey Broccoli Focaccia Sandwich

I used to cook 4 dinners a week and we would use the leftovers, since I typically make 4 servings per dinner, for lunch the next day. Both my husband and I work downtown (actually within a two minute walk of each other) so it’s definitely oh so tempting to meet up and just grab one of the many different ... Read More »
