We love steak and we don’t eat it very often. Sad, right? I think it’s sad at least. I originally wanted to make duck tacos for this recipe because duck is absolutely awesome, but I could not pass up the rib-eyes I saw staring me in the face the other day (a lot of foods have been staring me down lately, I’m not sure why). They looked absolutely scrumptious. As a result, I decided to change up my recipe a bit. Because my sister is here, we don’t eat spicy foods. She’s not a huge fan of the “spicy”, so instead of going for an INTENSE spicy salsa, we calmed it down by adding some cucumber (yes, it was still a little spicy) and she was more than pleased. I give you all permission to ask her for an accurate review =). This recipe is a perfect weeknight meal. It is great for leftovers. They can be eaten cold or hot. Either way they are delicious and easy. You can’t really pass up some easy right!?

We all crave breakfast for dinner every once in a while, and if you are anything like me you crave breakfast 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Well, we were totally craving breakfast the other night and we haven’t made pancakes in quite a while. I thought it was time. I’ve had some great ideas in my day, but this one takes the cake. No pun intended. Or was it intended? Hmmmm, you decide. =) In all seriousness though, this really did totally take the cake. These extra special pancakes are made with a combination of ten grain flour and cake flour (for extra fluffiness) and topped with a homemade whipped cream and apples that have been sautéed in butter, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. If that doesn’t have your mouth watering, I don’t even know how to begin to help you. I made these cakes twice this week, and I learned some tips and tricks along the way. Get excited for breakfast for dinner (or breakfast, lunch or brunch)…and a great beer pairing that takes you right back to October!

I feel like rhubarb often gets the pushed aside. It’s often looked over in the grocery store, and I bet you that many people don’t even know what it is. While I was grocery shopping the other day, I saw [...Read More...]

We love a good crab cake around here. I really think that a really great crab cake is hard to come by. They are so often made with too much bread (panko or some other binding agent) or sometimes it [...Read More...]

I’m obsessed with my southwestern-style cookbook here lately. I feel like it’s my go-to book when I’m having mental blockage on recipe-making. Last night I decided to adapt one recipe that I’ve been wanting to make ever since I picked [...Read More...]
