Colorado Green Chili #2

If you have read my previous post – Colorado Green Chili, then you are aware that I am obsessed with finding the right recipe to mimic our favorite Colorado green chili, and let me tell you, it has NOT been easy. Yes, every recipe I have tried and written about always turn out delicious, but…

Lemon Basil Lemonade

Along with several other herbs that I am growing in my tiny apartment, I have a lemon basil plant that was taking over the light from everyone else. In order for the other herbs to stay happy, I seriously needed to prune him back. Have you ever had lemon basil? It smells amazing, just as…

Chipotle, Steak, & Broccoli Quiche

Clean out the fridge Friday = quiche time! Today’s quiche features a chipotle sauce base topped with a thin layer of tomato slices. Then I added sautéed onions and broccoli mixed with pepper jack cheese and sliced steak. To top it off, whisked eggs with a little bit of heavy cream. I love making quiche….

When Life Gives You Lemons

Make lemonade…and Lemon Bread! This past weekend Adam and I went over to an old family friend’s house that happens to be 10 minutes away from us here in California. I have never met them before, but apparently they all grew up with my dad and his siblings, so it was fun to meet them…

Creamy Lemon Asparagus Pasta

If you have ever seen any of my other pasta blog posts, then you might notice that I tend to use a lot of the same ingredients, but vary the recipe a bit here and there. I also tend to use what I have in the fridge rather than going and buying specific ingredients. So…

Cheesy Brussels Sprout Skillet

I always say Brussel sprouts not Brussels sprouts…that’s interesting, I’ve been wrong this whole time. Who knew? Well, you have found the perfect recipe for your next party. Having a party or going to one, this dish will be the best of them all. (When parties are socially allowed again, for now you can make…

Green Chili Rice w/ Chicken

I really, really tried to use everything in my house before going to the grocery store, and because of this I have been getting pretty creative. I had one chicken breast, a bag of frozen mixed vegetables, frozen spicy green chilis, some chicken broth, and rice…and hence the name of this dish. First, I cut the chicken…

Chicken Mashed Potato Balls

It’s time to go grocery shopping again, but I don’t want to go until I have used almost everything in the kitchen (trying to limit my exposure to the virus by going to the store less..) So, that just means I need to get creative, and my creativity of the night is…Shredded chicken and mashed…

Ground beef, onion & mashed potato pierogi.

When I was a sophomore in college, my boyfriend at the time (now my fiancé) was living with one of our great friends, and he was OBSESSED with pierogi. Like, he basically ate it every night for dinner, mostly because it was super easy to warm up the frozen kind. So now anytime I even…

Butternut Squash & Asparagus Bisque

The other night, I was trying to think of what to eat for dinner, and all I knew was I needed to use the asparagus in the fridge. I was kind of sick of the normal ways I cook asparagus so I decided to invent something, and that happened to be this super tasty bisque that…

Parsley, Turmeric & Pepper Pasta

Parsley, Turmeric, and pepper pasta in a garlic olive oil sauce topped with chicken and peppers. Alright, I know I have made green pasta before, several times… but this is a new one, I swear. This was my first time making this flavored pasta dough and it turned out super tasty as well as a…

Banana Pepper Poppers

I harvested these beautiful banana peppers from work yesterday, and was so excited to eat them when I got home. I mean…I had a brilliant idea, to make jalapeño poppers, but with banana peppers instead. Yas! I was wondering if they would be spicy because they had turned red, but nope, they were perfectly mild….
