Poblano Quesadillas

Poblano chicken quesadillas are a delicious and spicy elevated quesadilla. If you’re a person who likes heat I’d say these land around a medium heat, if you are sensitive to heat…well then these may not be the chicken quesadillas for you. With a side of chipotle crema and fresh pico this is the perfect meal…

Sous Vide Steak with Gorgonzola Sauce

Sous Vide Sous vide cooking involves vacuum sealing your food and then putting it in a temperature controlled water bath. Since the water bath is controlled, the food is cooked to a precise temperature and cannot be overcooked. So in todays case, I was able to perfectly cook my steak to medium-rare while leaving it…

Beef Strogonoff

Beef strogonoff was one of my favorite meals growing up. It was warm, creamy, very filling, and was made with pasta, which almost always makes it a win in my book. After I had been moved out for a few years I remembered the dish and decided to make it for my husband. I hyped…

Wagyu Slider with Chimichurri

I love a good chimichurri sauce and when I realized I still had 1/2 a wagyu brisket I knew I wanted to pair the two. The brisket I had left was small, it was maybe 2 lbs., so my cook time was shorter than traditional brisket cooking. I also only had a couple of people to…

Mandarin Fennel Focaccia

I love fresh fennel, the taste really grew on me through culinary school but it’s not a flavor that pairs with everything. So when I was on an airplane a few months ago watching a cooking show with no volume, my daughter had borrowed my headphones, and I saw the host make a bread with fresh…

Pork Roast Sandwich

While I love the traditional pork roast and potatoes dinner, this sandwich is actually my favorite part of making a pork roast. It’s so simple but such a great toasted sandwich and filling lunch. Since the sandwich will be broiled, only long enough to toast the bread and melt the cheese, I start by quickly…

Potato Leek Soup

After Thanksgiving I had leftover potatoes that didn’t make it into the pot for mashed potatoes and leftover leeks that didn’t make it into the stuffing. I wanted something simple for dinner after such a big week of cooking for the holiday, so using these leftover ingredients and grabbing a fresh loaf of sourdough I…

Blackberry Pizza

This pizza was inspired by the Viola at Pizzeria Limone, it’s a chain pizza place near me that makes fabulous pizzas. Sometimes you need to have pizza night at your own home though, or there are a few things you want to tweak about a favorite dish from a restaurant and that’s what I did…

Chicken Sliders with Pineapple Aioli

These chicken sliders were a messy eat and so worth it. I made these for game night and from experience would recommend holding the card games until after the table and hands have been washed. The slaw with sweet chili sauce paired perfectly with the pineapple aioli and both helped to lighten what could have…
