A Tale of Two Meatloafs

So I decided to give Chef Michael Smith’s Kitchen: 100 Of My Favourite Easy Recipes another shot and make another of his recipes. Even though I wasn’t a big fan of his Coconut Crusted Chicken it did taste better leftover. The flavors blended and relaxed a bit, and the coconut no longer had that burnt […]

Jamie Oliver’s Meatballs and Pasta

So, I’ve been on a Jamie Oliver kick lately, and with meatballs being my second favorite food ever (second to lasagna), I had to give Jamie Oliver’s Meatballs and Pasta a try. I had heard of Jamie Oliver only through the school lunch program he was trying to improve in Huntington WV, I believe. I […]

Steak Salad

This was an easy and filling dinner for company Saturday night. As a side, I made some breadsticks brushed with a homemade herb butter using half of my pizza dough recipe. And honestly, I spent more time and effort on the dessert that I’ll put as my next post. I’ve got a basic recipe listed […]

We don’t eat them every week but we do eat them at least once a month, sometimes more often if we’re in the mood. I discovered a few years ago that typically when I […]

Football Night Nachos

You see, I’m a native Packers fan (not of Green Bay, but of Wisconsin), so I wanted to do something a little different with dinner tonight. I’ll resume Guest Recipes next […]

Dirty Risotto

Risotto again! It’s an entirely different recipe. Plus, through the magic of blogging, we didn’t actually eat that Lemon Chicken Risotto last week. The truth is the photos have been in the hopper for a blog post since early July. I don’t do that often though.Tonight’s dish (and yes, we ate it tonight) comes from […]

Lasagna

Lasagna has been my all-time favorite since childhood. Meat, cheese, and layers of noodles and sauce – a balance of unprecedented flavors and textures. This one is real simple to make and yields a dish greater than the sum of its parts. Lasagna Recipe For a “batch” of sauce:1/2 yellow or white onion, diced2 cloves […]
