Braised Brisket and Shallots

braised brisket and shallots

It’s fall!  My favorite season for so many reasons.  The smells, football, cooler weather and of course the food!  It’s so nice to have a cozy sweater on while cooking a nice comfort meal.  One of the first meals I usually cook in the fall is braised brisket and shallots. The first time I made this meal, my family was flipping over it.  The first time I made this for guests, they were flipping over it.  So, I’ve got some...

When you see “smoked salmon and asparagus omelet,” many of you might have glazed over thinking it’s too gourmet to make quickly in the morning.  Welp, that isn’t true.  I wouldn’t do that to you!  And I don’t have the patience or time to make something overly involved.

Pesto Chicken and Zoodles

I have a spiralizer that we’ve been using like crazy.  Zoodles have become a new favorite.  Even the pickiest here in the fam are embracing them.  So, pesto chicken and zoodles have been added to the dinner rotation. Zoodles have a nice texture to them.  Even if you’re a noodle devotee, you’ll be surprised at the nice consistency.  They have a bounce with a slight crispiness.  And incredibly easy to make! The first time I made them I kinda worried...

Perfect Scrambled Eggs

Growing up my parents always made scrambled eggs a bit on the slimy side.  And you know what, that is the way to go if you ask me!  I guess slimy isn’t the best word.  Let’s call it medium rare.  The perfect scrambled eggs.  But, perfect is relative, I guess.  Just like steak, people like their eggs a certain way. You don’t have to eat them “medium-rare”, so I’m not going to guide you that direction, but I will tell...

Spiralized Sweet Potato with Sriracha Dip

In our house we eat a ton of sweet potatoes.  Whole, diced, cut into fries.  Why not spiralized?   We’ve seen plenty of recipes for zoodles, so I bought a spiralizer and I found myself sticking a sweet potato on the thing first.  They turned out great! Using this was the easiest ever.  It made a ton of little curly sweet potatoes.  Once I figured it out, it took about 30 seconds to cut each potato.  I’m not usually into gimmicky kitchen...

Easy Fish Tacos

Who doesn’t love fish tacos.  They are so good and anytime we’re at a decent restaurant and spot them on the menu, I’m getting them.  Everybody needs to have a recipe for easy fish tacos on hand. For so long I hardly made them. They always intimidated me for some reason.  I guess because I didn’t know where to start with the sauce or what fish to use.  But, Sriracha oh how you have change me!  I discovered mixing some of this...
