Lower Carb Fajitas

I was thinking about my good buddy Peter the other day and how I promised him that I’d make a lower carb version of something so that he could have it. In the ten plus years that Peter and I have been family, I have made this promise multiple times and fall short. Mostly dueContinue reading “Lower Carb Fajitas”

Kung Pao Cauliflower with Vegetable Fried Rice

Sometimes you just need good Chinese food. I mean I’ve never met an egg roll I didn’t like, okay that’s not entirely true, I have. But I digress, I didn’t even make egg rolls for this. I should have, but I didn’t. What I did do though was turn cauliflower into Kung Pao Chicken soContinue reading “Kung Pao Cauliflower with Vegetable Fried Rice”

Not My Dad’s Nachos

Y’all my Dad can do so many wonderful things in the kitchen, but his nachos are on another level. I have great memories of nomming on them while watching a game, late night movie or even after a long night out.

Yeah no, that’s not gonna work. Oh but sweetheart, it does! And this quick salad is pretty versatile asContinue reading “Chickpea “Tuna” Salad”

There was this little vendor just down the street from my studio that served them dog style; hoagie roll steamed, Italian sausage hot or mild, flat top seared peppers, onions and garlic, and topped with the gooey mozzarella and provolone cheeseContinue reading “Sausage + Peppers times Two”

Boozy Peachy Ice Cream

I was having dinner with my Dad a couple of weeks ago and we were talking about this cinnamon vanilla infused sugar that he ordered, and how he’s been putting it on fresh peaches and then grilling them. At the mention of peaches, we began to remember when I was a kid and making homemadeContinue reading “Boozy Peachy Ice Cream”

“Fish” Taco Tuesday

Who doesn’t love tacos? I mean seriously if you know someone who actually says no to tacos, maybe reevaluate that relationship, kidding but only slightly. Everyone should love tacos and for the most part they are a pretty fool proof kind of dish. Although, the best ones in my opinion come from Taco trucks atContinue reading ““Fish” Taco Tuesday”
