Stuffing Frittata

Stuffing Frittata

Matt and I smoked a turkey for a Saturday dinner just between the two of us. Who does that?! Now Matt is the master of the barbecue, I don’t touch it. I won’t even take the lid off, that thing is too unpredictable for me. But Matt loves it. So I helped him with the … Continue reading

Chorizo & Pepper Stuffed Chicken

Matt and I have recently fallen in love with going to the cooking demos at The Galley in Chico. We love seeing cooking demos by local Chico chefs and sampling their food. Best yet, it’s free! This week, Kevin Garibaldi from Garibaldi’s Catering did a demo on cooking with chicken. He’s a lot of fun … Continue reading

Panko Crusted Fish with Lemon Garlic Aioli

Panko Crusted Fish with Lemon Garlic Aioli

Last night I went to Safeway and started browsing the fish section. I’ve been craving some crunchy breaded fish for awhile since it’s lent and all the fast food commercials have been featuring fish. I needed some white fish and found a bag of whiting fish. Neither Matt or I have ever heard of it, … Continue reading

Glazed Orange Scones

Glazed Orange Scones

I love how Matt will come home from work with a box full of fruit from his coworkers. I’ve had boxes of tomatoes, plums, and currently I’m getting boxes of citrus. At first I started decorating with all the oranges, filling bowls around the house with the lovely bright colors. But then I started having … Continue reading

Corn Dog Bites

Corn Dog Bites

I have a strange obsession with corn dogs. It’s a pretty new thing, but I crave and get so excited for a corn dog.  I wasn’t always that way.  I remember being a kid and we’d have those frozen corn dogs that you would microwave.  I liked them enough, but they weren’t amazing.  The batter … Continue reading

French Beef Stew in Red Wine

French Beef Stew in Red Wine

I’ve been freezing a lot of meats lately and I had three steaks in the fridge. Matt took one out and cooked it on the grill and it was blah. Tasted good, but the steak was so tough. Looks like they got freezer burned. So I had to do something with them and I figured … Continue reading

Tamale Pie

Tamale Pie

Matt’s a huge mexican food fan. For a majority of my life I didn’t really eat mexican food, well besides quesadillas. I don’t like spicy foods and I don’t like raw onions. But since it’s Matt’s favorite food, I eat a lot more mexican food these days. Sometimes I get tired of the usual rice, … Continue reading

Creamy Sausage and Potato Soup

Creamy Sausage and Potato Soup

I’ve been so excited for fall. I started decorating my house for fall in September, even though it was still getting up to 90 degrees. I bought my first pumpkin on October 1st. Why am I so excited about fall? Soups. Plain and simple. If you haven’t attempted a soup, you really should.They are really … Continue reading

Johnny Cakes

Johnny Cakes

I just think it’s hilarious that these are also called Hoecakes, like my boyfriend would jokingly call me that or something.  Recently fellow food blogger, Rufus, made Johnnycakes and I was just dying to have them the next morning. When I started looking up recipes, the thing I found was that there are a ton … Continue reading

Chicken Satay with Pad Thai

Chicken Satay with Pad Thai

Every time I go to Thai Restaurants, I always get pad thai and chicken satay. So when I found a recipe for peanut satay at a friend’s house who swears by it, I knew I had to try it. Even though thai food has complex flavors, I really wanted to keep this meal simple. I … Continue reading
