Mmmmmmm! Picadillo…Cuban Comfort Food. You might not know that I’m a big fan of Cuban food. It helps that I now live in Florida and get to visit and work in Miami somewhat frequently. However, one of the best and most memorable Cuban meals I’ve ever had was in the not so tropical location of […]

Beef Stew with Brandy & Dijon is the dish I WISH I had made for Christmas dinner. Yes, this beef stew is better than prime rib. In fact, it blows prime rib away. I’m a big fan of stews and braises and slow cooked foods. It’s usually pretty simple to get some good ingredients together […]

Mexican Stuffed Peppers  – One of our favorite weeknight dinners. Colorful and sweet bell peppers hold a variety of savory and spicy ingredients which you can customize to your own tastes, preferences, and what you have on hand. I was never a big fan of traditional stuffed peppers because cooked green peppers tend to have […]

Burgers with Shallots & Gin…otherwise known in our family as Gin Burgers! This is one of those recipes where I’m sure you will think I’ve gone totally off the deep end. Gin in a burger? YES! Gin in a burger. Really! This is my dad’s recipe. He makes a mean martini – stirred, not shaken […]

Hello, Taco Salad. I often crave Mexican food. It can be authentic Mexican food, TexMex, or even a complete rip off that doesn’t resemble anything anyone in Mexico would ever eat. If it has beans, cheese, and salsa, I’m pretty sure I will be happy to eat it. Taco Salad is a great way to […]

I like it…” the poor husband replied. […]

Corned Beef & Cabbage – Irish Boiled Dinner. Perfect for St. Patrick’s day! In my world, some holidays like Christmas, Easter, Valentines’s Day and New Year’s Eve/Day are open to many dining options. Pretty much anything from ham to beef to fondue works for me when in search of a festive meal. Honestly,  for most holidays and special occasions I’m […]

Shepherd’s Pie

Mmmmm…..Shepherd’s Pie. Now made with real shepherds! No! I’m kidding. That’s gross even for Sweeney Todd loving me. (Oh, and to be clear, that’s Broadway Sweeney not movie Sweeney. I love Johnny Depp but prefer him as a pirate or better yet a chocolate loving, guitar playing gypsy.) Ahem…back to this amazing recipe. Shepherd’s Pie […]

Italian-Style Pot Roast with Porcini Mushrooms. Stracotto if we’re speaking Italian.  Vegetarians, look away. Today is all about a big hunk of beef. Roasts are just the thing when you have to feed a crowd and don’t want to be slaving over the stove while everyone else is having fun. Pot roasts are even better […]

Old Fashioned Beef Stew! Just like grandma used to make. Actually, just like mom and dad still make since they sent me the recipe. Even though it is decidedly NOT fall here in Florida, for some reason when October hits, I still crave traditional fall foods. Last night it was stew and apple crisp. This […]
