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…

Madeleines

When it rains I think of bakeries, hot Mochas, and favorite books. As I drove down the 101fwy in heavy rain I could smell fresh baked goods.  The first thing I do when I get home is open up my baking books.  My first attempt at this recipe was awful.  I had to find another…

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…

Chicken Pot Pie- Topped Biscuit

Most of the time I eat relatively healthy, veggies and protein.  There are occasions when I just want to sit with a jar of Cocoa Almond butter and devour it with a spoon. 😉  There are also times when I  need good comfort food in my life because life should be about balance.   After…

New England Seafood Chowder

After our Labor Day weekend in Mammoth and two very cold nights in the canyon we came back to really hot weather and sneezing, itchy throats and I”m like no. I decided  I wanted something warm and creamy with seafood in it.  So after some research I came across the top seafood chowder recipe on…

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,…

Panko/Parmesean crusted Tilapia in Tomato-Basil cream sauce

My daughter is loving this fish recipe I found.  I did everything step by step with 2 things different-  I used Roma Tomato’s instead of Cherry and I also drizzled the top of this with Thyme Honey Vinegar and you can taste the thyme in this.  I bought this new item at Trader Joe’s and kept…

Cake Texture Pancakes…oh yes.. ;)

I”m always trying different pancake recipes and to me they have the same results- buttermilk and no buttermilk ones aren’t that much different in texture or taste for me.  I don’t make pancakes that often but since my little ones do love them I make them on Sundays for them.  Today I decided to just…

Spiced Chops with Chickpea Puree

This recipe comes from the same magazine I got my Goat Cheese Salad recipe from.  This is a Dec/2013 Jan/ 2014 issue of Fine Cooking.   After skimming through the pages this one caught my eye, I replaced using Lamb for Pork meat.  I loved this recipe the Chickpeas are so tasty and creamy.  I also…
