Braised Eye of Round and Book Giveaway

I grew up with certain staple dishes. One of them was eye of round, which in Panama we call lomo. My grandmother would make this, simply braised on the stove top. She still makes it and serves it with steamed carrots, and fried potato wedges. The fried potato wedges were really the reason why this was one of my favorite dishes: we only had home-made fried potatoes when this dish was made. So one day, when I was in college, I was invited to a pot luck dinner and decided that I wanted to make this dish for…

Chilli con Carne

It’s not often that my husband and I dine at Spanish or Mexican restaurants. When we do eat something Mexican, it’s usually dipping nachos in a jar of store bought salsa. Not really exciting I know. When I could finally make my own Mexican style beef and beans, I was really excited! I came…

Grilled Cheese with Fried Apples and Sage

Last week David Tanis’s column focused on the type of dinner when you arrive home late on a weeknight, a little tipsy and not properly fed due to having been at some kind of holiday party. This is a type of dinner I love – €”quick, aimed at instant gratification. It’s not always healthy, but it’s infinitely more satisfying than grabbing a slice of pizza on the way home or ordering in (to me, at least).

Turkey Pho

This year was our first Thanksgiving in the new condo. Recap of last year’s: We were looking for a more permanent place to live (i.e. starting the process of looking at what would inevitably be 86 places before deciding on a place to buy), were entertaining my sister, her husband and her two dogs in our tiny 1-bedroom apartment, all the while attempting to cook a turkey in an oven that operated at an almost 30 degree slant. Because we were splitting our day between families, we asked a friend who would be…

Lemon Rosemary Chicken with Cheddar Grits and Roasted Asparagus

Usually I’m pretty modest (if not critical) when eating my own food, but tonight, I can honestly say that this dinner was something you could easily find in a restaurant — and it’s so basic. I had some chicken breasts staring at me from the fridge (what a conundrum) so I pulled out my trusty 3-ring binder of recipes and looked for something to cook under the “chicken” tab.

Agnello Con Piselli

Yo Yo Yo…It’s been a while hasn’t it…What represents winter & the cold wet nights better than a hearty stew so a simple, tasty, lamb stew is my comeback post, (I know, I know I’ve had about 10 but at least I try). I wish I could say this is my recipe but I have to give credit to the “Two Greedy Italians” for this one, I’ve made lamb stew before but I like the addition of chili & white wine vinegar in this one so I’ll give you their recipe, I’m sure they won’t mind.

Great-Grandma Austa’s Beef and Noodles

Before we left North Carolina back in September, Beau’s mom handed me two pieces of paper. One contained the recipe for her lasagna (the best I’ve ever had), and the other contained a family recipe for beef and noodles. Now, I can tell you right off the bat that a recipe for something like ‘beef and noodles’ is not something I would normally go for. Especially one that includes short ribs, if only for the fact that short ribs were something I was unfamiliar with, and therefore not in any hurry to get to…

Green Bean Casserole with Madeira Mushrooms and Chicken

Remember green bean casserole growing up? I do – cream of mushroom soup mixed with the beans, and those yummy canned fried onion bits on top. Fast forward to today – here is a more grown-up version. Much healthier in my opinion, and I added some cooked chicken to make it a complete meal. This was fabulous.

Zucchini Pie with Yeasted Olive Oil Crust

I am so happy with this savory pie. Here’s the deal: the filling takes about four minutes to pull together and you can use any pie shell you want. You can make this recipe in a snap with a pre-made crust, or you can give it a little more love and make the crust yourself. I went with a yeasted olive oil crust from one of my most favorite cookbooks, Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone. I usually shy away from tart and quiche type things for dinner because, with a buttery crust, they can be pretty high in…
