Smoky Cashew Dip

Smoky Cashew Dip

It’s been longer than I’d like to admit since I last posted a recipe here. I haven’t stopped cooking. It’s simply that I hadn’t made much until December that I had to write about, and we all know how busy December can be. To motivate […]

Beef with Capers and Garlic

Beef with Capers and Garlic

I decided upon the perfect thing to make for dinner while my husband was out of town one weekend. I would try the recipe for Beef with 100 Cloves of Garlic. Actually, I came across two competing recipes (second one here), both adaptations of the […]

Kung Pao Sauce

Kung Pao Sauce

For the Chinese New Year, I decided I would season the wok that I’ve had for several years but never used. I’d never seasoned a wok before, and I didn’t do a good job the first time. The basic idea behind seasoning a wok is […]

Coriander-Crusted Tuna with Black Bean Salsa

Coriander-Crusted Tuna with Black Bean Salsa

It’s just the beginning of March, but tonight I had a taste of summer. Last summer I made various salsas to go with chicken and fish. Sure, they were all kind of similar, but you can’t really go too wrong the combination of tomatoes, bell […]

341: Chicken with Green Chile-Almond Sauce

341: Chicken with Green Chile-Almond Sauce

I decided to make Chicken with Green Chile-Almond Sauce. I bought some almond milk when it was on sale and had a coupon, and used 3 tiny cans of chopped roasted green chiles. I combined almond milk, almonds, green chiles, broth, and garlic in a […]

258: Skillet-Cooked Shrimp with Romesco Sauce

258: Skillet-Cooked Shrimp with Romesco Sauce

I don’t cook shrimp very often, but I decided to make Skillet-Cooked Shrimp with Romesco Sauce. It seemed like a good use of my tomatoes and a red bell pepper that I had. No single step of this recipe was particularly time-intensive, but it still […]

242: Steak with Fresh Mango Salsa

242: Steak with Fresh Mango Salsa

I made Grilled Steak with Fresh Mango Salsa, but I pan-fried the steak instead of grilling it. I otherwise followed the directions. This was a pretty fast and easy recipe to put together. This was pretty tasty. The spice rub for the steak was just […]

212: Cucumber and Peach Salsa

212: Cucumber and Peach Salsa

To use up another cucumber, I decided to make Cucumber and Peach Salsa. As with most salsas, the worst thing is chopping up all the ingredients. I had actually blended the chipotle in adobo sauce before I froze it, so I used a teaspoon of […]

151: Broiled Tuna with Peach and Pepper Salsa

151: Broiled Tuna with Peach and Pepper Salsa

I decided to make the recipe for Grilled Halibut with Peach and Pepper Salsa, but with tuna instead. I didn’t peel the peaches for the salsa because I don’t mind eating the skins. I omitted arugula because I didn’t find it at the store. I […]

Fiesta – 106-108

Fiesta – 106-108

Cinco de Mayo seems like a good excuse to make a complete Mexican meal. We took this outside last year (chips and salsa, chicken burritos, black beans, margaritas, and fresh air), and I loved it! I decided that we’d take our folding table and chairs […]
