Mediterrean Chicken with Mushrooms and Zuchhinni

I found another fantastic recipe.  I think my food blog is just a reference for me to find recipes I haven’t made in a long time and remake them again.  I used Boogle Merlot wine for this one and it had wonderful flavors.  The combination of a full Bodied wine, the pearl onions and pancetta…

Grilled Cod With Three-Pepper Relish

I found a really good recipe the other day while sifting through a pile of old Magazines.  I am easily distracted, I start a cleaning project stumble on a pile of old cooking magazines that I can’t part with and the next thing I know 2 hours later I have bookmarked 3 or 4 to…

Shakshuka, A Traditional Baked Egg Dish-

Sometimes I lose track of time and so it seems with this website. 🙂   I use to be on the internet too much, on Facebook every day and other sites, I wasted my time and energy just being out there.  The minute I decided to start putting away my laptop the more I started doing other…

Black Bean Quinoa Salad with Chipotle Steak

After doing my random scroll through all the foodie’s I”m following on Instagram I came across Cooking Light‘s little video take on a very tasty new dish.  I new I had to make this today and I also realized how much I miss Cooking Light recipes.  I did the recipe exactly with no substitutions and…

BBQ Salmon Burger

I wanted Salmon burger and after looking at the ingredients to a couple of recipes I found online I wanted something more than what those recipes called for.  So I made my own.  I loved the way these burgers came out and I think a lot of it has to do with the ingredients I used,…

Fish Tacos with Cabbage and Chile Pepper Slaw

I purchased Paleo Magazine and I plan on trying out at least another 5 more recipes this summer.  I’ve already conquered two. 🙂  I love Cod- this fish has it’s own buttery texture mix that with the soft roasted tomatillos in mild flavors…ah perfection.  For the adult version I added a chopped roasted jalapeno to it….

Middle Eastern Salad with Garbanzo and Black Beans

There’s this Middle Eastern salad I love from Trader Joe’s- I decided to just add all the ingredients it says it has on the side of the carton- it is so tasty and now I have my own to indulge in.  I used Lemon Flavored Olive Oil mixed with Scilian Selezione Olive Oil.  1/4 cup…

Salmon with Quinoa Spinach, Mushrooms and Eggplant

I wanted to play with my veggies and I haven’t made Quinoa in a while so I decided to throw it all together.  I first slow cooked half of a sweet onion in 1 tsp EVO until yellow with crisp edges than added in couple handfuls of chopped mushrooms.  Once that cooked out it’s liquid…

Ahi Tuna Nicoise Salad

I was thinking about that salad from Public School 805….that Nicoise Albacore Salad and decided I need to make that.  I went to Gelson’s yesterday thinking, well I know they must have Albacore- a hard fish to find and I guess now they only do special orders on that fish because it is so expensive…

Pecan Hummus in Pistachio Oil

After reading up on different Hummus recipes online it helped give me an idea how to make it work except with the ingredients I want to use.  After making all those garbanzo beans from scratch last week I had lots of them just sitting in my frig- and sure now I”m seeing all these posts…
