Culinary Challenge: Brazilian, Part Two

Culinary Challenge: Brazilian, Part Two

Did you make the cheese croquettes yet? I am already trying to figure out when I can make them again. For the rest of our meal, I decided to make a traditional chimichurri sauce, a coffee-rubbed steak with an herb salad and a side of green beans with hazelnuts (instead of Brazil nuts). It doesn’tContinue Reading

Culinary Challenge: Brazilian, Part One

Culinary Challenge: Brazilian, Part One

I’ll admit: I was skeptical. I think M was probably being “funny” when he wrote out his food choices for our culinary challenge. Backfired. We’ve wound up with some really good food, and we’ve gotten out of our comfort zone. Take, for example, our Brazilian appetizer: Croquettes De Queijo, or Cheese Croquettes. Not something IContinue Reading

Culinary Challenge: Irish – Slow Cooker Corned Beef

Culinary Challenge: Irish – Slow Cooker Corned Beef

Last year was the first time I made corned beef. Or even thought about making corned beef. I guess when you marry an Irish man, it becomes a requirement. That’s fine. I LOVE it. I bought a 4.5 pound corned beef this year since the two of us tore through a 3 pound one inContinue Reading

Ole! It’s Mexican Night, Part Two

Ole! It’s Mexican Night, Part Two

Yesterday, I shared M and my Mexican Night appetizer: Queso. I highly recommend giving it a try on your next Mexican inspired evening. I bet it would be great as the cheese sauce on nachos… Hmmm. For our entree, I decided to mimic one of our favorite meals at the Mexican restaurant in our neighborhood:Continue Reading

Ole! It’s Mexican Night, Part One

Ole! It’s Mexican Night, Part One

As I’m writing this, rain is falling and DC is expected to get 6-9″ of snow again tonight. It’s my fault: we bought an SUV before the winter started. I’m ready for sunny days, drinking outside, and warm air hitting my skin. At least Saturday night was Mexican night in our house! We could at leastContinue Reading

Culinary Challenge: Fried Chicken

Culinary Challenge: Fried Chicken

Saturday night was our weekly culinary challenge. After cooking over the course of two days (and several hours the day of) during our Mediterranean Challenge, I decided it would be wise to switch this endeavor to a weekend day. (Smart girl, over here.) The challenge of fried chicken allowed me to break out a cookbookContinue Reading

Culinary Challenge: Mediterranean Night

Culinary Challenge: Mediterranean Night

I think it’s fitting that we channeled the Mediterranean the night of a snow storm. We woke up to 9+” of snow this morning. The government is off, schools are off, and M and I are both working from the house. Hey, at least the dog got to enjoy the snow. As a reminder, MContinue Reading

What’s Cooking – February 9-15

What’s Cooking – February 9-15

I can’t believe the first week of February has already come and gone! Today, M and I are heading to Fredrick for the day and having brunch at VOLT (finally!). This is actually the third time I’ve had a reservation there, but the first time I’ll get to go. The first time, without me knowing,Continue Reading

Cheerio! It’s British Night!

Cheerio! It’s British Night!

Last night, we had our first “Culinary Challenge” (I renamed it from “The Countries Game“). As a reminder, M and I wrote down 12 dishes or types of cuisine. We’ll pick one out of a jar each week and have an evening themed around our selection. First up was one of M’s challenges: British food!Continue Reading

Working It Out and What’s Cooking – February 1-8

Working It Out and What’s Cooking – February 1-8

That’s a wrap folks. January is officially one for the books. My goal for this month was to eat more out of the pantry and to spend less then $80/week at the grocery store. Success! I went $1 over this past week, but since I had to buy olive oil and vegetable oil ($13 total),Continue Reading
