Turkey Bolognese Sauce & Whole Wheat Pasta

This past weekend, I decided to make more homemade pasta and the same bolognese sauce I have made for a few months now. I have made this sauce so much now that I didn’t need to look at the recipe this time around. I started […]

Because I Can…Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Buttercream

Because I Can…Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Buttercream

The frosting in the middle is a bit brownish because it’s a combination of leftover vanilla and chocolate buttercream frosting I made a few weeks ago. I made more vanilla frosting yesterday for the outside of the cake. Yep. I made this cake just because […]

Mexican Feast Part 6: Fajitas de pollo/Chicken Fajitas

Mexican Feast Part 6: Fajitas de pollo/Chicken Fajitas

Fajitas de pollo. YUM! I honestly thought the steak fajitas were going to be better than these, but I was proven wrong. Usually, no matter how much I season chicken, I still think beef tastes better. This time, however, the chicken was perfect, and I […]

Mexican Feast Part 5: Fajitas de bistec/Steak Fajitas

Umm, steak fajitas. As I said before, the steak was good, but the warm tortillas were definitely the star of the show. I used a marinade that came from two different websites. It mainly consisted of cilantro, lime juice, salt, chili powder, and other ingredients. […]

The other day, I introduced the first part of my Mexican Feast, which were cheesy frijoles refritos or refried beans. In that post, I promised to present these flour tortillas next.Ummmmm, flour tortillas. I wish I could make another batch of these babies. They are […]

I decided to make a full, savory, “authentic”, Mexican meal this weekend. So, for a few days, and depending on how well the photos come out, I will try to post everything I made. To start off, I made Steak fajitas, Mexican rice, flour tortillas, […]

Sweet & Sour Chicken

Sweet & Sour Chicken

I was in the mood for Chinese food on Labor Day. Not burgers. Not BBQ. Just Chinese food. I think most Southerners would find that sacrilegious, but since I live alone, I can basically do what I want without anyone knowing…well, except for anyone who […]
