Every Saturday, I go through Twitter with #foodblogger and find my favorite food related articles. These are this week's favorites!

There's just something about herbed lamb chops that gets my mouth watering. Just look at these and tell me they don't look amazing!

We've been making a Loaded Baked Potato Soup around the house, sometimes sneaking some corn in there. It's interesting to see other takes on potato and corn soup.
Just look at this! Do I really need to tell you why this caught my eye?

As much as I love a good homemade tomato sauce, a pasta dish with homemade pesto is perfect for hot summer nights!

I've always enjoyed Brussels Sprouts. These baked with chicken and bacon are going to be a must try for me!

I love pretzels. There are so many different options beyond the traditional sea salt. Not to mention, all of the different variations on the types of pretzels!

It's been a while since I shared a recipe from Indian Clay Pot. This salmon has so many flavors that I cook with almost on a daily basis!

When I saw pan seared scallops and shrimp, I was intrigued. But when I saw shitake mushrooms and asparagus, I was hooked. 

This Tomato Galette looks like something perfect to cook for the upcoming Mother's Day!

There is so much big flavor in a good hearty bolognese sauce!

It was a slow week for this batch, only one article really caught my eye!

There has always been something about spinach and white bean soups that I have always loved! I can't wait to check this one out!

Every Saturday, I go through Twitter with #foodblogger and find my favorite food related articles. These are this week's favorites!


As much as I like complex recipes, there's something about a simple recipe with only three ingredients that just draws me in. Plus, I never met a graham cracker crust I didn't like.
Shrimp and teriyaki are two of my favorite ingredients, and this recipe combines them into one dish with pasta, one of my other favorite ingredients!

This mustard mopped piece of beef looks amazing! I may have to develop a recipe of my own to make this at home!

Butter cookies are one of my favorite cookies. I can sit and devour a tin of those Danish butter cookies. Add some chocolate on top, and I just can't pass it up!

It's been a busy few weeks, and I haven't been able to post like I would like. I'm back, and I'll be posting some new content this week!

Every Saturday, I go through Twitter with #foodblogger and find my favorite food related articles. These are this week's favorites!

I always like restaurant reviews. They give a better insight to local fares for traveling than any travel guide can bring. While I don't have a trip to New Zealand planned at the moment, it's somewhere I've always wanted to go. This gives me something to plan around.

I've been trying to replace beef with chicken where possible lately. That means that I need new chicken recipes. A bonus of this recipe, is that it is all baked in the oven!

I would go to my neighbors' house when I was little and hang out for hours. They were a retired couple. Sometimes for lunch they would make us Sloppy Joes. Funny, those were the only ones I ever really liked. I'm interested to try out this vegan version.

I've always thought that fad diets were just that, fads. Most of the time, the latest trend isn't sustainable. Take Keto for instance. Is your diet sustainable, or is it just the latest band wagon?

I love spicy rice dishes. This looks like a dish I might make for myself on a weekend when the wife and kids are out of town, and I'm left to fend for myself!

It's been unusually cold here this time of year, making hot chocolate a must! Now making it a S'mores Hot Chocolate brings it to a whole new level!
I've written before about my cheesecake obsession. It was even our cake of choice for our wedding!  I'm always on the lookout for a new recipe to try!

Back in college, I used to make my own granola. It was sugar free, with honey and safflower oil. These refined sugar free granola bars make me want to try both!

I love steak with chimichurri sauce. Normally, when I see people put steak sauce on their steak, I cringe. But chimichurri sauce, that's different story.

If I haven't told you before, I have three kids at home. Making sure they don't have too much sugar is always a top priority. But, we always want to have our cake and eat it too. This cake just might be the proper compromise!

Red Wine Sauteed Mushrooms

Red Wine Sauteed Mushrooms
Red Wine Sauteed Mushrooms
One of my favorite meals is a perfectly grilled steak. The only thing better is a perfectly grilled steak with the perfect side. I like to make Red Wine Sauteed Mushrooms with my steaks for the perfect sides.

The Recipe:

The Tools:

  • Saute Pan

The Ingredients:

  • 5 Baby Portobello Mushrooms, washed and sliced
  • 4 Garlic Cloves, mince
  • 1 Shallot, diced
  • 3 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1/2 Cup Red Wine
  • Salt and Pepper

The Method:

In the saute pan, melt the butter over medium high heat. Once the butter is melted, add in the garlic and shallot. Season with salt and pepper. Saute the garlic and shallot until lightly browned. Stir in the mushrooms. Continue to saute until mushrooms are lightly browned. Stir in the red wine and continue to saute until reduced. Serve alongside or over your perfectly cooked steak.

Happy eating!

Menudo is such a great soup to eat when you are feeling down. It is full of nutritious ingredients that can help pick you back up!
When I make cornbread, it almost always has cheese and jalapenos in it. So what better way spice up the other classic southern bread?

I've always liked grilled or roasted lamb, but never had it in a soup. To be honest, this sounds amazing!

One of the easiest week night meals to throw together is a pasta salad. The ingredients go together so simply and they are always so delicious!
