Sourdough Semolina Challah
Sourdough Semolina Challah

Ah, Challah… is there another bread that is so sweet and rich and yelow?  I don’t think so, which is exactly why I thought I’d attempt to bake a loaf.  Now, I don’t do anything the easy way (as most of you have realized), so instead of merely breaking out the ol’ baker’s yeast I went with a sourdough starter.  I know what you’re...

Salads galore
Salads galore

Over the past week I’ve tried a few different salad (and salad-like) recipes and I thought I’d share some of the winners with you. Mexican Chopped Salad with Honey-Lime Dressing Don’t let the dressing scare you off… this is a wonderful salad.  I’ve made it twice now and have decided that both grilled steak and tomatillos are good additions. ...

Salsa Fresca
Salsa Fresca

I was craving a nice salsa the other day so when I went shopping this morning I decided to pick up all the stuff to make one of my favorite salsas.  I have been cooking this up for months and have altered the recipe a few times and this is currently my favorite version. Name: Salsa Fresca That's one sexy salsa, no? Ingredient Breakdown: This is what I used, but as with...

Lasagne al Forno

This weekend I was in the mood for a bit of Italian, so I thought I would go for a nice and basic lasagna.    I had come across a pretty simple recipe by one Gordon Ramsay a few weeks ago and decided that would be our dish!  I strayed only very slightly from the original recipe and it came out spectacular! Name: Lasagne al Forno Trust me, it tastes as good as it looks. Ingredient...

Enchilada Casserole

I think it may be time for another dinner idea!  Today I’m thinking something with a Mexican twist.  I’m sure most of you have had enchiladas and usually they come from a little box you buy at the store (or the sauce comes from a bottle).  It is time to take back the enchilada… make it your own!  Now don’t worry, we’ll make it easy, in fact,...

Ah, nothing tastes quite like a nice hunk of sourdough, does it? There’s just something about that bread, from the hard outer crust to the chewy tangy inside… pure heaven!  They say the best stuff comes from San Francisco, but unfortunately I’m pretty far away from good ol’ California, so I’m going to have to make due myself.  Luckily I have...

It seems that most people I talk to never know what to eat for breakfast, if they even eat it at all (always eat breakfast… always).  I thought I’d give some suggestions based on things I’ve made to eat to get your motor going first thing in the morning (be honest, a PopTart has never gotten you moving).  So, let’s get to today’s dish!! Name:...
