Spinach and Feta Crescent Rolls

Spinach and Feta Crescent Rolls

It’s usually when I find the most random ingredients in my fridge that I need to use up that I come up with a recipe that I can get even the pickiest of tiny humans to eat.  OK, so maybe I cheated a little bit with this one by wrapping it in a crescent roll,

Baked Saffron Brown Rice

I recently discovered baked rice.  I’ve been a traditionalist as far as rice goes.  All my life I’ve been steaming my rice or frying the leftovers.  Steaming definitely makes a fluffy rice.  Through the years, I’ve graduated from making rice the way I was taught as a kid (from my Asian father) with just rice

Corn, Avocado and Black Bean Salsa

What’s not to love about salsa?  It’s quick and easy to make and extremely versatile.  You can use it for an appetizer or serve it for dinner.  And what’s more, when I serve it to my tiny humans with chips, I trick them into eating their veggies! I threw together this corn, avocado and black

Either way, all I know is sometimes I like to eat chicken teriyaki and the other day, I made some and

Classic Beignets

So the other day, I thought to myself, self, what would you like to eat right now?  And of course, the answer I came up with was beignets.  Jazz fest just happened and KB and I have both been to Mardi Gras, so suffice it to say I really enjoy New Orleans.  And there’s nothing

Chicken Marsala

Confession time.  I’ve never made chicken marsala until now.  But I thought to myself, how hard could it be? All I have to do is cook some chicken and make a pan sauce with some mushrooms and marsala wine.  And of course, me being me, I threw in some bacon.  I know it’s probably not
