Here you have quality control. PREP TIME: 1 hour COOK TIME: 10 mins TOTAL TIME: 1 hour 10 […]

Oh. Oh, yes. Yes, PLEASE. Chili just warms the cockles of my Texan heart and as I was reading through The Pioneer Woman’s blog entry, I was melting little by little. I am SO making this. Chipotle Chicken Chili recipe here.
This may seem complicated at first (I’m thinking of my mom who hates to cook but will fortunately happily wash every dish you dirty in the cooking process), but I think this recipe will rock! Found it on Yahoo! (The actual website is confusing and doesn’t make it clear that these two recipes aren’t actually […]

The final recipe my dad and I made at the Mediterranean cooking class at the Culinary Institute of Virginia. I had no idea gnochho (pronounced nee-oh-key) was so simple to make. Note I said simple, not easy. It definitely takes some practice. But this was soooo good! Other recipes from the class: Braised Carrots […]
Another recipe from the Mediterranean cooking class my dad and I took at the Culinary Institute of Virginia and let me just say, if you like a little spice and you call yourself a Texan, you are obligated to switch out the chicken with chorizo sausage like we did. My heart sings. (For a little […]
My dad and I attended a cooking class (my first!) on Mediterranean cuisine with the Culinary Institute of Virginia. SOOOO fun! And we had some AWESOME dishes! I just had to share. I’m not a fan of cooked carrots. I guess it goes back to my elementary school “hot lunch” days when those little […]
