My all-time favorite soul-satisfying first-course dish is Broccoli Cheese Soup! Yep, even above Loaded Potato Soup.
he Special of the Week is Marinated Green Beans. My impartation for this dish comes from Whole Foods Market. In the deli, they sell a similar dish which I absolutely have love! Unfortunately for me, my local Whole Foods isn’t exactly local. Consequently, I decided to give try my hand at making this dish.
This week’s Special of the Week is Berry Mixed Greens Salad with Poppy Seed Balsamic Vinaigrette, that is a mouth full. But so it this salad.
Thai Beef with Basil, came about on a fluke. One day, I was strolling through the produce section of Walmart. Out of the corner of my eye, there was something so very surprising to me. Thai Basil.
Buffalo Chicken Mac & Cheese is not my creation. Even though I did not look up a recipe for this, I know this combination exists. However, the base mac-n-cheese is my recipe, handed down to me by my grandmother.
The second season of Netflix’s Altered Carbon is here! I stumbled up on season one quite some time ago. Instantly, I was in love with the concept. The visuals, concepts and acting was fantastic to me. After I watched the last episode, I wanted more. It took a while, but more is finally here!
Stir-fried beef and broccoli is one of my favorite dishes. It is super simple and quick. The key is to get all your mise en place done and cut your flank steak on a bias. It is also great with chicken, pork tenderloin and several meat substitutes.
Finally we have an almost perfect Chicken & Sausage Gumbo! This is the third time I have made this recipe from Food Network by Emeril. It is actually a combination of this and this recipe by him. When I say it was a journey to make this gumbo for the third time, I would not be exaggerating one bit!
Here is a little something about me: I can't pass up a good sale on groceries. It is a serious issue. I really do need a chest freezer. In my opinion, a vacuum sealer is one the best inventions known to man. Of course, a good Sharpie rounds it all out.
My adoration runs very deep for my Instant Pot. That being said, I still need help to make sure I am using the correct times. I also need a good marinade.
