Zombie Apocalypse and Cheeseburger Casserole

Have you ever noticed that in TV land, zombies can bite through a couple layers of clothing? The rest of the body is rotting away, but their teeth are stronger than ever. It’s the same with their hands. One zombie alone manages to easily rip through flesh while the skin on their fingers is barely holding them together. Continue reading

I’d Like Some Pasta Sauce With My Wine Please

Footprints in Flour

Today was a brutal day at work. I believe the only thing that got me through it was the fact that there was a bottle of beautiful dark wine in the fridge, beckoning for me to come home. I could almost hear it calling my name….Never mind, that was my children asking me when I would be home to cook dinner. Now that I was awoken from my daydream it was time for me to go home and get to cooking.

When I arrived home I had to get going on the ingredients quick. I was really in the mood for pasta and the sauce tends to take a little while. After pulling the wine out of the fridge, I had to remind myself what I got in there for. I really needed tomatoes, green peppers, garlic and onions. Whenever I make pasta sauce I wrestle with the dilemma that I…

One Pan Cheesy Chicken Tacos, With a Splash of Guacamole (Or a Lot, Whose Judging?!) 

I made some really awesome one pan cheesy tacos! Everyone went nuts over it and there were no leftovers. I adapted a recipe from sweetcsdesigns.com. I read this amazing recipe and adapted it to my dietary restrictions. (I posted the link for reference and I will also post what I used.)

I haven’t posted in a couple of weeks, because I have been getting everything ready for my upcoming surgery on the 19th. I am having Chiari Malformation decompression surgery. For those who are curious about what exactly that is, here is the link.

Now back to the food! For my version I used ground chicken instead of beef. To start off I cooked bell pepper and zucchini until it was tender. I removed that from the pan and then browned the meat. After the meat was cooked I added the veggies back in along with a tablespoon of tomato paste.


I let that keep going until the tomato paste started to smell really good then added a few splashes white wine vinegar along with diced tomatoes and green chilis.

The fun part of cooking (at least for me) is the seasoning. I season to taste because I’m super unreliable when it comes to measuring it out. I go by the way it smells. I don’t usually use pre-kitted salted seasoning like fajita mix (although I do occasionally add unsalted fajita seasoning to enhance a dish). I prefer to mix and match until I have the right combination of flavors. I used ground mustard, chipotle, garlic and herb (unsalted), cumin, smoked paprika, turmeric, and salt to taste.

I let all the flavors marry for about 15 min on medium low. When I feel like they are sufficiently hitched I add 2 cups of baby spinach and the juice of one lime. After the spinach wilts, I shred cheese over the top, let it melt, then garnish with green onions.

I put mine in little lettuce boats with homemade guacamole (avacado, lime, red onion, jalepeno, and salt), and Cholula hot sauce. The rest of the family used flour tortillas. In all, this dinner only took about 30 to 40 minutes of cook time. I will definitely make this one again!

Lazy Days and Slow Cooker Chili

Today is a slow cooker kind of day, not because it’s cold outside, or dreary (It’s actually really sunny). It’s all because I am feeling lazy. I have spend the last three days buying school supplies, going through the kids clothes for donations, and cutting kids hair. I am spent. I just want to curl up on the couch in my yoga pants, drink my tea, and write! Continue reading

Wine in My Stew?! Uh, Yes Please!

Its over 100 degrees outside and naturally, I want a hot bowl of stew. I found an amazing recipe online that calls for wine in lieu of Worcestershire sauce. So of course, I. am. in! In a fever, I rush to the store to purchase the ingredients, I need everything except for the wine. I always have wine, I never know if I will need it for a drink…or recipe. Continue reading
