Hello everyone. Let me ask you, are you in the mood for Mexican inspired flavors? I am. Tacos are really easy to make in my opinion. So I wanted to try something a little different. Something like a giant taquito, or a small chimichanga. No matter what you call em they’re good and in my house we use uncooked tortillas…
Greetings food fanatics I hope you all are doing well, and I hope you are all in good food health! Meaning that you are (if not already) cutting back on artificial processed foods as well as canned foods that hold little to no nutritional value when compared to their fresh counterparts. But it’s your life and your choice, I am but a…
Good day to you all friends. I haven’t posted in a few weeks, I apologize I had a few things in life to take care of. I hope you forgive my absence. What better way to apologize then to give you a killer recipe to make for your loved ones right?! It’s easy and flavorful and I hope you enjoy it.
Who doesn’t like a good vinaigrette? They’re easy to make, and allow you to be creative with what you put in them. A vinaigrette, is what’s known as a temporary emulsion, an emulsion of a fat and acid. It’s temporary because after it’s mixed it only stays mixed for a short period of time. This is because oil and vinegar…
Love the summer, the heat, the sky, swimming, picnics, it’s truly a wonderful thing. The best part for me is growing a garden! I love making food in my house then going to the garden to grab some extra basil, or coriander, it’s great. Speaking of great, have you had pickled carrots.
Happy summer everyone! The weather is beautiful, nature is beautiful, kids are out of school which is and isn’t beautiful at the same time, but their days are numbered. In a couple of months they’ll be back in school and out of the street! My favorite part of summer is managing my garden!

Good afternoon food lovers! I just got through making some crepes for dinner tonight and remembered that I have to post my recipe that I came up with this week. People often tell me that they want recipes that are easier, and quicker to execute, so like the simple recipe I came up with last week I have another one…
My wife always tells me to make simple recipes for people to try on my site. I’ll admit the Arancini recipe I did last time isn’t that easy and quick to make but it is delicious and fun to make especially with the kids! This one is easier and very delicious. The pasta I used is called “Lumaca”
Hello to all you lovely people! Have you had arancini? It means “little orange” in Italian because of how it looks when it’s done cooking. There are many varieties but the concept is a rice ball stuffed with mozzarella then it’s breaded and fried. Mine has meat but it can be omitted if
Happy Sunday everyone! I hope this post finds you well, and I hope you’re in the mood for goodness! I had no idea what to make my family for dinner then I remembered I had some leftover pesto in the freezer that I made from the basil in my garden. I then saw some Italian sausage next to it and…

I know riblicious isn’t a word, but it should be! At least that’s how I felt when I tasted these ones. I’m not bragging (I am a little) it’s just that when I concocted these in my kitchen then tried them, I paused, looked down and kissed my culinary hands!
Good day everyone, it’s is still nice and cold here in Utah. I’m sitting here with a blanket eating pumpkin seeds enjoying my day. Unfortunately my wife isn’t feeling to well. She asked me to make some soup for her, so I thought to myself ” why not make soup for her and all of you?!” So I came up…
Hello to all of you lovely people! I hope you’re having a good week so far. I got a question, do you like guacamole? You know the traditional Mexican creation that contains avocados, tomatoes and other delicious things that are combined in a molcajete (mortar and pestle). I’ve seen
Hey everyone, who likes soup? Me too I especially like beef stew. Of course this isn’t beef stew it’s chicken! I like chicken, it’s healthier, leaner, and flavorful. Why not make a stew out of eat. I used lemon verbena in this recipe. It’s

Hey ya’ll, who likes basil? What about butter? Them together? What, you never tried?! Oh man you don’t know what you’re missing. I love compound butters (basically butter mixed with other yummy stuff to add to a dish)

C’mon we all have a family member or friend who always brings something that we wish they didn’t but no one ever tells them, I know I…
Mmm mm boy do I love my bitter greens! Collards, kale, beet, I grew up on these delicious greens and I hope you try them. Growing up my family would use ham hocks for the meat, but I like to use bacon! If you like them spicier add crushed red chilis once they’re plated. And when you place them in…

Happy Sunday world! I had a great week cooking at work and at home cooking for my family. One thing I made them that they really liked was this soup.
