Spinach-Stuffed Flank Steak

Martha Stewart’s Spinach Stuffed Flank Steak My Spinach-Stuffed Flank Steak (minus the red pepper sauce) I have been wanting to make this recipe for a while, but wasn’t sure how Bryan would feel about it because it has a cheese that he isn’t very familiar with and it also has capers.  I offered to leave…

Butternut Squash Soup & Croutons

I have been wanting to make some butternut squash soup for a while now, but sadly I don’t own a food processor, blender or immersion blender so I put it off. I started thinking about the soup again this past week and was determined to make it, so I thought if I cooked the squash…

Roast Beef, Peppers and Potatoes

If you have been following my blog you’ll notice my love for Martha Stewart’s magazine, Everyday Food.  It is by far my favorite magazine because the recipes are easy, not overly complicated, if they aren’t naturally gluten-free, they are easily adaptable and there are so many great tips in them.  My mom bought me a…

Weekly Menu Planning

We’ve all been hit hard with the economy the way that it is and if you are like myself, you’ve been hit a bit harder because I am still out of work.  I wasn’t laid off or anything, I willing left my job and life in California to move back East to be with Bryan.…

Getting Setteled with some Spicy Orange Chicken

Garlic-Basil Shrimp

This super simple recipe has become one of my favorites (and Bryan’s too I think).  Its from the “So Easy” cookbook by Ellie Krieger.  You really have to give this a try and best part, the original recipe almost 100% naturally gluten free.  The only substitution I have to make is instead of orzo pasta,…

Sweet Potato Fries

You know those nights where all you want is a cheese burger and fries?? Well tonight was one of them…minus the cheese burger. At last weeks farmer’s market I picked up two sweet potatoes and figured, why not make fries out of them tonight. Sweet Potato Fries 2 medium – large sweet potatoes 1 teaspoon…

Frittata

Today I made my first frittata. I looked in my Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking cook book to get the basic idea of how to make a frittata and just ran with it. I looked to see what I had, pancetta, fresh spinach, baby potatoes, onion, garlic and rosemary and just used all of it.…
