Short Rib and Wild Mushroom Cheesesteaks

14967399704 f2dccd6612 c Short Rib and Wild Mushroom Cheesesteaks

I know, I know.  You cheesesteak purists are probably rolling your eyes at me.  A true cheesesteak is an art form.  And it doesn’t include braised short ribs, wild mushrooms, or fancy cheese.  But you know… it’s hard to argue with short ribs, wild mushrooms, and fancy cheese, right?  Right.

This recipe was born from a big bowl of cabernet-braised short ribs sitting in my fridge.  I made a big batch for a shower I threw over the weekend, and I wanted to do something noteworthy with the leftovers.  I thought about pasta,… Continue reading

Before I went on my world travels with Amanda, I made tons of food for Chicken Legs to eat while I was gone. We grilled insane amounts of chicken, and I made a few soups as well. This was one of those soups. It was so delicious and super easy to make. 

I used dried beans and soaked them overnight. The next morning, I just dumped everything in the slow cooker and let it cook all day. Easy peasy! The chili tasted great. We topped with with some extra cheese, because you can never have enough cheese! After… Continue reading

These crispy chicken poppers are a delicious snack or dinner that is easy to prepare. What is great about these chicken poppers is that they are baked in the oven and not fried. The poppers are crispy because they are rolled in cornflakes. A lot of the flavor in this recipe comes from the parmesan cheese and seasonings such as garlic, paprika and ground black pepper. This recipe gets even better with the parmesan-ranch dipping sauce. The sauce is prepared in a blender and combines ingredients such as sour… Continue reading

Fruit Salad with Creamy Glazed Dressing {My Favorite Fruit Salad}

Let’s be honest, side dishes can be brutal. I don’t know how many times I’ve been asked to bring a fruit salad to a potluck or get together and I spend an inordinate amount of time agonizing over what I can do to make an ordinary fruit salad more spectacular than a bowl of cut up fruit. (And I can’t bring this honey lime fruit salad to every single get together I ever go to – if I know one thing, it’s that a girl needs fruit salad options.)

I’ve been hoarding this creamy fruit salad dressing for a while.… Continue reading

There is great satisfaction in being organised in the kitchen.  I can  go for days and days without the right vegetables or snacks and then I suddenly switch into domestic goddess mode.  It happened yesterday.  I baked choc chip cookies and sourdough bread and put a lot of it in the freezer.  I’ve done all the grocery shopping I need.  I feel unusually virtuous.  (Just don’t look at my carpets.  I’ll do them later!)*

These chocolate chip cookies with smoked almonds and cacao nibs were actually a repeat of those I made on my visit to Adelaide.   I feel… Continue reading

 DSC 95451 Julia Child’s Favorite Roast Chicken

I was in the mood for roasting a chicken so I went in search of a good recipe online. I found one at Food & Wine that looked perfect probably because it is Julia Child’s recipe and we all know she was amazing in the kitchen. I didn’t have cooking twine to tie up the drumsticks, but other than that, I cooked it as written. The chicken turned out beautiful, juicy, tender, and delicious! I served this chicken with simply baked sweet potatoes and it was a tasty… Continue reading
