I would make a wretched vegetarian, but I’m cooking/preparing food for a client doing the Standard Process Cleanse this month. The general idea of this cleanse is consuming all vegetables (at least 1/2 consumed raw) and fresh fruits with a few allowances for small servings of psuedo-grains (lentils or quinoa only), scant amounts of healthy […]

This shredded chicken recipe may be the easiest recipe I make.  It makes a great filling for a taco bar, topping for salads, nachos, enchiladas, quesadillas, or appetizers.  You can cook it as written below as dinner for your family or scale it to serve large parties.  The simplicity does not equal the resulting flavor.

Spanish rice is that loose term for any rice dish that is sort of red and is typically served alongside Mexican food.  My college friend, Marti, used to get giant casseroles of Spanish Rice from her childhood nanny which fed people for days.  Locha’s rice was legendary.  Or maybe we were just hungry and almost […]

Blasted tech support.  I spent the whole day yesterday trying to get this post onto my site.  Someone asked me for a chicken tetrazzini recipe.  I can’t remember who it was, SMIL perhaps?  Someone else?  I haven’t made this in ages, so it took me awhile to track it down.  I don’t think I’ve attempted […]

To combat the inertia threatening to lock me in a culinary bell jar, I’ve been rereading an old stack of the now defunct Gourmet Magazine.  Looking for a flavor, an ingredient, a style I’d forgotten about, anything really.  I stumbled across a 2008 recipe for cumin-scented stir fried beef with celery.  The recipe looked intriguing […]

Italian Parsley and I are having a great love affair.  It’s magical.  We should all eat more.  With olive oil, in mass.  Last night I cooked some quick Turkey Tenderloins with a fresh and bright chimichurri.  Turkey tenderloins?  What’s that you say?  Yep, they’re found in your grocery, though a simple turkey breast bone in, […]

A good pot roast has seen me through the worst of times.  In our family, in times of major life crisis, we turn to the purest form of love and comfort – a pot roast.  Somehow the stewed chuck roast and vegetables provide a warm hug to dry up your tears and help you find […]
