Usually, Dino makes breakfast on weekends. He’s really good at it. But this morning (OK, early afternoon) I decided to give it a try. It was my first attempt at making a frittata, and it turned out GREAT! It had a lot of flavor, and the eggs were cooked perfectly. … Continue Reading →

Last night, I needed to make something quick and simple, so I went for this recipe from Cooking Light. I misread the directions and didn’t slice the chicken before browning it, so it took a little longer to cook. I don’t know why you’re supposed to bread it and then … Continue Reading →

I wanted to try out a new cocktail on Thursday night, so I picked one out of a book that looked simple, and that we had all of the ingredients for. They turned out okay, but VERY strong. I served them over ice to try to dilute the alcohol a … Continue Reading →

Sunday night I made stir-fry out of the leftover marinated steak from Saturday. It was pretty good. I had an onion, red pepper, green pepper, and some green beans from the farmer’s market. I sauteéd this all with some garlic and lite teriyaki sauce, threw in the meat, some and … Continue Reading →

Dino made up this marinade a few months back, and yesterday we actually measured out all of the ingredients so that we could get an “official” recipe. The name comes from him doing this ridiculous John Travolta impersonation, so if you ever end up saying the name of it, you … Continue Reading →

I wanted something quick and simple last night, so I decided to make one of Rachael Ray’s recipes. I had made it before, and found it to be refreshingly easy – something that actually lived up to its name. Also, it deviates from Rachael’s normal recipes, as it doesn’t involve … Continue Reading →

This next recipe was a disappointment, and not because of the recipe, but because it appears that the sumac that I bought had been altered. It was salty! Dino was sure that I must’ve accidentally added too much salt, but I swore that I didn’t. so I went and grabbed … Continue Reading →

This recipe is from my mom. It’s also the base for her chili recipe. I’m not sure where she originally got it, but it’s the best! These sloppy joes really live up to their name, so I suggest eating them open-face style with a fork and knife. I served this … Continue Reading →
