I was in the mood for Macaroni Grill, but didn’t want to hassle with loading us all up and going there. So….I made our own version here at home. I always have colored peppers in the fridge and not only does it give this dish great flavor, but it adds…

Not your same o Broccoli

on October 20th, 2010 in Side dish, Vegetables by | No Comments

Broccoli…..i always wonder what to do with you. I get tired of the same o same o broccoli side dishes. This dish reminds of a broccoli salad minus the mayo, and it’s not cold. If i plan on feeding it to the kids i don’t add the chili flakes as…

You will kick yourself if you don’t double this recipe. As you all know soups are better the next day, and this one is no exception. My family requests this soup often and a certain friend, that will remain nameless, but you know who you are…. In our house we…

Chicken Fried Rice

I like to serve this with a big bowl of hot and sour soup. Great use of left over veggies that you may have in your fridge, and you can use pork, shrimp, tofu, etc… instead of the chicken. Serves 7 1/2 tablespoon sesame oil 1 onion; chopped 1 1/2…

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, these are good. My family fights over who will eat the last one. Simple to make, and a great side. I usually triple this recipe to have some in the fridge to eat on philly steak sandwiches, or to use in panini’s. Great addition,…

I had some extra chipotle peppers in adobo sauce left over from some Fish Tacos i had made the night before. I hate to waste anything so it was good excuse to try something new. It’s on the verge of being Fall out, but in my mind I’m already there….

Orzo Salad

on September 5th, 2010 in Pasta, salads, Side dish, Vegetables by | No Comments

A dish that screams freshness and summer. You get your bursts of flavor from the goat cheese and dill. However, if you’re not a fan of goat cheese than try feta. This goes great with lamb gyros. If you want to turn it into a main dish you can add…

Loaded Baked Potato Salad

on September 2nd, 2010 in Side dish by | No Comments

You can take this to a cookout or a pot luck, and nothing will be left. It tastes great coming right from the oven, at room temperature, or served cold. To me, nothing goes better with a grilled steak or some bbq like a good ol potato side dish. Serves…

Of course it’s good, it’s Julia Child.  This is amazingly simple yet fantastic. It calls for heavy cream, but I had half and half so i used that.  Also, I have made without the Parsley and it was still superb. Serves 4 1 1/2 lbs brussel sprouts  1/4 cup butter…
