Chicken Chile Rellenos with Mexican Zucchini Brown Rice

Chicken Chile Rellenos Close Up

It’s pouring outside.  I almost feel like I’m back in the rainy season.  I’ve got Ms. Foxy Brown (my dog) by my side and Cooking Channel on the TV.  When you combine the rain with my snuggly puppy and fun food shows it equals one lazy day.

So in the interest of full disclosure – I ... Read More »

P1020039-1

Last night was a fun filled night of accounting homework…right… I spent four hours, count them one, two, three, four, on it and I’m still not finished. It’s amazing how much other stuff I manage to get done when I know that I’ve got a paper or a case study or homework to get done. For example, take last night.  I decided to ... Read More »

Spicy Greens with Chicken Sausage

Spicy Green and Sausage over Rice

I joined a weekly CSA this past year and it’s been fabulous.  I’ve been getting awesome, locally produced farm fresh produce and enjoying the fact that I’m supporting my community.  It’s also been forcing me to stretch the limits of my creativity to ensure we’re not eating the same thing over and over again. Take this for example: Does anyone ... Read More »
