Piri-Piri Chicken Chili

Piri-Piri Chicken Chili

I’ve been searching for bowls of comfort these days over bowls of greens, and chili, obviously, comes to mind.  It’s rare that I ever try anyone else’s chili over Mom’s when I want something basic because, while everyone INSISTS that their particular chili recipe is […]

Caesar Salad (with homemade dressing)

Caesar Salad (with homemade dressing)

It’s September and while we all know that salad season is winding down to make way for chilis and soups and all the rib-sticking goodness, I’m giving you this salad because really it’s a salad for all seasons.  Salads are seasonal; the spring varieties tout […]

A Weekend Roast

A Weekend Roast

Despite the fact that I love to eat and I love to cook, sometimes I find myself uninspired when the weekend hits. Because that tends to be when the kitchen magic you see happens, a sort of cook’s block akin to writer’s block, isn’t a […]

Mango Coconut Salad

Mango Coconut Salad

This recipe was supposed to be part of another recipe (coming later this week) but I didn’t want to get lost in the shuffle because it’s so good. I often make really delicious salads (salsa? salad? what’s the difference?*) for garnishes that can really stand […]

Mole-Q Chicken Tacos

Mole-Q Chicken Tacos

I’ve been in Ann Arbor about five months or so, and I can’t say that there’s too much about the city of Chicago that I miss. Maybe it’s because I’ve been back almost a handful of times since I’ve moved, with the next one already […]

Poached Eggs in Spicy Mexican-Style Tomato Sauce

Poached Eggs in Spicy Mexican-Style Tomato Sauce

Since it’s still Birthday Week, I’m exercising my prerogative to eat all of my favorite foods. While I’ve already hit up sandwiches, some things barbecue, Doritos (seriously, my love) and all the ice cream (we’re working on 2x a day at this point- thank God […]

Sweet & Sour Tacos

Sweet & Sour Tacos

Tacos, I’ve got ‘em. Sorry for the lack of Somethings this week. I was back in Chicago this past weekend volunteering and visiting friends and wheeling and dealing. The internet and blog went by the wayside for 3 days and it was a bit of […]

Parmesan-crusted Pork Loin

Parmesan-crusted Pork Loin

Bring on the meat sweats.  They’ll go along great with the regular sweats we’ve all got going on these days.  I mean, sooooo hot. And Lord help us, it’s only June. My grill game is still going strong, and this recipe, and variations on it, […]

Coronation Chicken Salad Sandwiches

Coronation Chicken Salad Sandwiches

I’ve been in a lunch rut. Have you been in a lunch rut?  It’s all salads, salads, salads over here and while I’ve got some good and interesting ones, it’s time to mix it up a little more, lest I start settling for my fall […]

Piri Piri Chicken Thighs

Piri Piri Chicken Thighs

I’m so proud of myself for grilling TWICE so far this season. It may seems like stupid victory to you, and it is. But for one THB who has used her grill barely over two handfuls of time in the four years that she’s owned one, twice […]
