Eat All the Sides!

We are about to conclude our non-traditional week!  Sorry for the delay, we had some cookery up our sleeves this weekend and our poor hands and minds were a bit too tired for posting!  But, with the weekend behind us, we are ready to keep on with the Thanksgiving craziness!  We went a little veggie/healthy…

Quick Chicken Coq Au Vin with Roasted Carrots and Bite Size Potatoes!

Everyone has a comfort food that makes them want to hug their plate and sometimes it’s as simple as creating a fragrant, thick and caramelized sauce that warms the heart! Today we’re putting a spin on the usually labor-intensive French classic, Coq Au Vin. This super simple skillet version takes only 45 minutes to execute and still retains the…

Vegetarian Shepherd’s Pie with Soy Chorizo!

Although we are not very excited that it will soon be time to dust off our winter sweaters and don our knee high boots, we are relishing in the fact that comfort food season is upon us! What better way to kick off this comfort fest than with a rich and hearty vegetarian stew, blanketed with…

Greenhouse Grand Opening Event!

This weekend was full of gorgeous weather and fantastic local events! Hopefully you had the chance to enjoy at least one. As for us, we spent our Sunday at a great local event celebrating the grand opening of the Design for Ability Greenhouse and their vocational training program for youth! The event featured the musical talents…

Pub Style Beer Cheese Dip with Fresh Pretzel Bread!

We saved the best for last on this fabulous double dippin’ Friday!

Creamy Collard Green Dip with Crispy Bacon and Jalapenos!

We successfully suppressed the urge to fry a dip today, but not to worry, we’re bringing you two recipes that are great for fall parties and are just as comforting as a deep-fried ball of cheese! Most of our creations this week have come from being inspired by family traditions or combinations we’ve experienced locally. Today’s…

Roasted Cauliflower, Black Bean, Corn and Cilantro Dip with a Kick!

This week’s Taco Tuesday! is all about the great side dish decision. What should you bring? How much should you make? Can it be spicy? Will everyone like it? Our creative salsa side dish conquers all uncertainties and elicits an endearing “yum” from all who partake! We were lucky enough to be invited over to a friend’s house last week…

Deep Fried Kale with Roasted Chicken Filling, Couscous and Creamy Avocado Sauce!

Sometimes Fry It! Friday gets a little out of hand, but with experimenting comes a little risk! Although the execution didn’t go quite as planned, all of these wonderful flavors melded together creating one big happy, perfectly crisp Kale sandwich! Try if you dare…and please send us pics of your deep fried debauchery! Deep Fried Kale with Roasted Chicken…

Four Filling Empanada Extravaganza!

We are in love with What in the World Wednesdays! It gives us a chance to explore, experiment and add a spin on our favorite eclectic recipes we’ve discovered over the years. We went a bit crazy this week, but we just couldn’t resist warm flaky dough wrapped around four different, distinct and delicious fillings! We incorporated four unique…
