Chorizo, Rice and Bean Soup

  Sorry y’all!  This Southern Belle has been out of touch for the past week, but don’t fret!  I’ve been cooking up a storm and even have some restaurants I need to share with you.  First things first.  It’s been rainy in the South and that always makes me crave soup!  I made this for […]

Chili-Citrus Flank Steak with Arugula Salad and Blue Cheese Crostini

  There have been lots of posts about chicken and ground turkey breast, so I figured it was time to give a well-exercised part of the cow some TLC.  I was playing around with my spices and found a perfect combination of a smoky-citrus rub to add flavor with a citrus juice medley to tenderize […]

This sure isn’t Taco Bell!

  So Monday night is bowling night in our house.  We are a member of an alumni association league in the fall and spring, and then just play for fun on Mondays in the “off season”.  In Riche’s old single days, that meant Taco Bell for dinner.  Not being a TB fan myself, I’ve attempted […]

Chili-Lime Pork Medallions with Sautéed Red Cabbage, Brussels Sprouts and BACON!!!

I’m working on the restaurant review for our fabulous dinner at Saltyard Saturday evening, but in the meantime, I thought I would share the yummy dinner I prepared for our weekly Sunday family dinner night with my parents.  Riche started this great tradition, and it’s one that we look forward to every Sunday evening.  This […]

Did someone say dessert???

Who is stopping by a farmers market this weekend?  If you happen to buy some fresh strawberries, I have a tried and true recipe for the perfect dessert to compliment your dinner.  I’ve also made these for baby showers – strawberries for girls, blueberries for boys (and they never disappoint!)  This is a perfect choice […]

So real men don’t eat quiche now do they?

  What’s that old adage?  Real men don’t eat quiche?  Well why not?  It’s not just for “lunching ladies” anymore.   Especially when you can eat a yummy apple and gouda cheese sausage quiche with carmelized onions.  To really class it up, why don’t we add a salad frisée with bacon-shallot vinaigrette dressing and poached egg […]

Baja Taco Blitz

  In keeping with the Mexican food and fresh farmers market ingredient themes, I thought I’d share another favorite Mexican inspired dish.  I also hate to waste food and since you might have some leftover tortillas from the chimichanga recipe, this is a great way to use them up as the recipe as written below […]

Baked Turkey & Jack Cheese Chimichangas

I LOVE Mexican food.  LOVE!  I also love to try and eat healthy and there the roads shall meet.  Does that sound like a difficult undertaking? Not at all!  I embrace the challenge of finding healthy alternatives and this is one of my favorites!  (and one of my Dad’s favorites too by the way…)  There’s […]

Asian Chili Lime Chicken

So we’ve been to the farmers market, let’s make something yummy with all of that fresh produce!  Now don’t get me wrong friends… I love some good southern fried chicken but following a healthy lifestyle when it comes to nutrition is very important to me.  Healthy food is yummy too! YIELD: 4 servingsIngredients1 tablespoon canola […]
