Tofu Stir Fry with Peanut Sauce

Tofu Stir Fry with Peanut Sauce

I recently received a Wüsthof  Chai Dao knife to review.  This post isn’t even part of my review, but that knife is the reason I made this stir fry.  I wanted to chop a lot of vegetables and there is no better way to do that than with stir fry.  I also needed pictures for [...]

Red Wine Tomato Sauce

Red Wine Tomato Sauce

Everyone needs a good tomato sauce recipe.  This red wine tomato sauce one is my favorite since it can be used for anything from pastas to dips and even on pizza.  I think pizza is probably my favorite application of tomato sauce….and cheese…and bread.  Pizza is amazing. But back to this red wine tomato sauce. [...]

Carrot Souffle Recipe

Carrot Souffle

So for September, I challenged myself to make soufflé for The Scary Adventure.  This post is a little late…I was mad at this dish and here’s why.  First, I burned some butter.  Then I made half the soufflé (the part with the egg yolks) and I set it out to let it could cool.  I [...]

Corn Chowder and Dumplings

Corn Dumpling Soup

I’m starting to be a little wary of spicy corn soups.  I absolutely love the, but sometimes they don’t come out quite right.  The last time I made a spicy corn soup, it turned pink. Not just slightly pink either, it was bright pepto-bismol pink with bright yellow corn in it.  My friend described it [...]

Broccoli Pesto Bake

Sometimes at the end of the week I’ll end up with really weird things left over.  A tiny little bit of cheese, a handful of chopped onion, you know what I mean.  Random odds and ends of food that didn’t get used up.  Instead of tossing this all away there are two things I always [...]

Calzones

Calzone recipes are good for a lot of things (like filling hungry bellies), but they were especially handy last week.  I was traveling for work for a few days.  It was exciting because it was my first business trip and I felt super official plus I was going to Washington and got to see a [...]

Mac and Cheese

My boyfriend is away this week house sitting for some friends.  Normally when he’s gone for an evening working at the hospital or out with friends, I like the time to catch up on my girly shows and eat whatever I want.  But a whole week?!  We’ve done long distance before (1 1/2 years total between [...]

My Favorite Enchiladas

July 22, 2013
Veggie Enchiladas

When I moved to Phoenix, I naïvely thought there would be tons of delicious Mexican restaurants.  I actually struggled to find any that were halfway decent and not incredibly sketchy/in bad areas of town.  Several places just served grease on a plate and would call it whatever you ordered.  ”Oh, that nasty cheese filled slab [...]

Cheese Fondue

Cheese Fondue

Sometimes I get a little bit too excited over little things.  For example, yesterday Pandora started playing “Hit Me Baby One More Time” by Britney Spears and I’m ashamed to admit I was so excited, I started texting people about it. Another thing that gets me feeling overly giddy is anything free.  If I see [...]

Peanut Sauce

Peanut Sauce

This sauce makes a great dipping sauce for spring rolls or a sauce to go on meats, stir fry, veggies, or even pasta.  It’s very versatile and has an Asian flavor to it.  Try it with whatever your making next time that’s Asian themed and it’ll really bring the whole dish up a level.  My [...]
