Spinach, Pear and Brie Quiche

Spinach, Pear and Brie Quiche

The weekend is upon us and whether or not Easter/Passover is your thing, breakfast should always be and for that, I bring to you a Spinach, Brie and Pear quiche, which should help with that. I have a love/hate relationship with quiche. Mom made her […]

Cheesy Breakfast Potatoes

Cheesy Breakfast Potatoes

People always think I’m a lucky duck when I say that I grew up in Florida, but the truth of it is that I was young enough that I never really experienced the personality of the city, and the Miami that I lived in was […]

Sweet and Spicy Salmon Burgers

Sweet and Spicy Salmon Burgers

You know, if the weather actually got it’s act together, we’d realize that it’s almost April, which means it’s almost May and burger season is upon us.   I hate talking about the weather but my state of mind relies on it: am I too […]

Chicken Taco Chili

Chicken Taco Chili

A few months ago whence from vacation I came, I made this dish. It doesn’t really have a name except for generic Mexican-ish one pot chicken dish, and thus I named it chicken taco chili, but it’s so good that you should just ignore the unappetizing […]

Sweet Potato & Quinoa Salad

Sweet Potato & Quinoa Salad

Isn’t it weird how a salad always tastes better when someone else makes it? Am I the only one who thinks that?  I mean, I can try and try again to make a salad as good as my favorite little bistro and it just doesn’t […]

Spanish Chicken with Saffron and Almonds

Spanish Chicken with Saffron and Almonds

Spanish-Andalusian style-chicken with saffron and almonds It’s that time of the year where we’re all stuck inside, and dinner should be cooked low and slow.  The slow-cooker or Dutch oven working for hours until the smell fills the house and it becomes unbearable to resist.  […]
