Short Rib and Stilton Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Short Rib and Stilton Grilled Cheese Sandwich

So the other day I made my Guinness braised beef short ribs.  And of course, I had leftovers.  That’s the thing about short ribs…sometimes (not often) you have leftovers.  I think it’s the nature of the beast.  Or the fact that I made a lot.  Who knows. Either way, normally I can do some serious

Guinness Braised Beef Short Ribs

There’s something entirely decadent about beef short ribs.   Maybe it’s the amount of marbling in the meat.  Maybe it’s the amount of time it takes to cook them so they are falling off the bone and full of flavor.  Who knows.  All I know is that I only make them every once in a

Gochujang Chicken

My sister went to Korea recently.  To do math.  Go figure.  She travels the world to do math.  In that respect we are polar opposites…I avoid math at all costs.  But I do like to travel.  And she’s super fun to hang out with.  If it wasn’t for the math.  Once I convinced her to

Chicken with Mushroom Sauce

So the other day, I had some mushrooms I wanted to use.   Yes, I know mushrooms aren’t for everyone.  So if you’re one of those people that doesn’t like them, then this recipe probably isn’t for you.  But I like mushrooms.  And truffles.   Oh the things I could do if I had a

3 Ingredient Creamed Spinach

I’m always looking for ways to get my family to eat veggies.  I love veggies myself and try to incorporate them into our diets as much as possible.  Unfortunately, with tiny humans, sometimes its a challenge.   Which is when I resort to cream and cheese.  Or cream cheese.  Yes, it might add some unwanted

BLT Egg Salad Sandwich

I love a good egg salad sandwich.  I’ve eaten them more often since KB and I started keeping a bowl of hard boiled eggs in the fridge. It makes it so convenient for snacking and also easier to make an egg salad sandwich when the craving arises.  So the other day a friend gave me

Sweet Cinnamon-Pickled Watermelon Rinds

Summer is almost over!  I should know.  I let TAB out of the house in a dress today and by the time the bus was 1 minute out, I was regretting it.  Drizzling rain and temperatures in the mid-60’s.  It’s supposed to warm up to the mid-70’s by this afternoon, but still. I asked her

Garlic Scape Pesto Pasta with Chicken

KB loves garlic scapes.  I remember the first time we had them.  On a whim, we bought a bunch at the farmer’s market in Montana. We sauteed them in a little olive oil with salt and pepper and some sliced carrots.  They were delicious.  Garlic scapes are the flower bud of the garlic plant.  They

Boozy Cherries

Cherries are my weakness.  Ask anyone.  I used to send KB to the farm stand on his way home from work when we lived in California.  Especially during cherry season.  There’s nothing better.  Yes, they’re more work because they have those little pits in the middle.  But it’s worth it.   Sometimes, I give the

Crab, Avocado and Mango Salad

Since I started working at home, I’ve gotten more adventurous at lunch time.  I used to be a sandwich/leftover person, but now I rather enjoy making something fresh and easy.  It’s also nice when you have some ingredients that need to be used up and throw them together and make something delicious. The other day
