Easy Chicken and Dumplings

Easy Chicken and Dumplings Being from the south you grown up on southern recipes like chicken and dumplings. It's been a while since I have made them so I started researching recipes and found nothing that sounded like my grandmother's chicken and dumpling. I see so many people cooking them in the slow cooker but I have yet to brave to that method and stick with what I know... stove top. But, ... Read More Here...

Potato Gnocchi Recipe

I love when potatoes are on sale as they are so versatile I can do so much with them. When they hit $.10 a pound I stock up and it's play time in the kitchen... for Bob! Most gnocchi recipes call for russet potatoes but we like to make ours with a sweeter potato... the Yukon Gold. Don't be intimated to make potato gnocchi as it is not as hard as it looks! Really... I am the gnocchi cook in the ... Read More Here...

What is a Tomatillo

When we lived in Virginia my garden had many a tomatillo plants. Here in Las Vegas we don't have the room to grow them as they love to grow wide and I never tried to cage them so not sure if it would work. Also, you cannot have just one tomatillo plant since they need to be with others to pollinate. Bob uses tomatillos often in his cooking, which they play the main character in mostly Mexican ...

Chipotle Burrito Bowl Recipe

I finally pulled myself out of a 3 week flu stupor to prepare a Mexican food dinner with a Chipotle burrito bowl recipe. Yes, around this home we eat a lot of Mexican, Italian, and Middle Eastern inspired dishes. Every once and a while we will toss in a curry or two to break up the mundane. What can I say? We are just huge fans of salsas, sauces, and mezes! Creating a copycat recipe for the ... Read More Here...

Red Wine Reduction

One of my favorite restaurants in Las Vegas {Firefly} for hanging with friends  serves this amazing dish of bacon wrapped dates with a red wine reduction and blue cheese. Can you say O-M-G! The drive is about 20 minutes to get there and this lazy butt hates to drive so  I will make this dish at home when I feel the craving coming. We don't drink a lot of red wine and it collects dust in our ... Read More Here...
