Cubano Pork Tenderloin

Cubano Pork Tenderloin

We recently went to a cuban restaurant and dined on a delicious Cuban sandwich. When I think Cuban sandwich, I want to sign up and dig in fast. While perusing a newly purchased cookbook, I couldn’t not volunteer to cook Cubano Pork Tenderloin when we came upon it. Even though this might seem or look…

Apple + Pear Sangria

Apple + Pear Sangria

This sangria is the perfect introduction to fall flavors when you live in Southern California. It’s some of fall’s best flavors (apples, pears, and cinnamon), but it’s cold and refreshing when it is still almost 100 degrees outside. It’s a win-win situation for anyone yet to experience a glimpse of fall weather. Apple + Pear…

Spinach and Leek Croque Madames

Spinach and Leek Croque Madames

While this definitely doesn’t qualify as a healthy meal given the copious amounts of butter that are used, it did help us incorporate more veggies into our meal, which is one of current goals. Dustin is even willing to drink green smoothies in the morning! We love croque madames, but didn’t expect this to be…

Pistachio Champagne Risotto with Crispy Shallots

Pistachio Champagne Risotto with Crispy Shallots

When Erin comes home from a vacation, I always cook a romantic meal. And the only thing that comes to mind when I think romantic food is Italian. It’s been awhile since I’ve made a risotto, so I set out to come up with an interesting risotto recipe for Erin’s return. This time we dined…

Cinnamon Roll Cookies

Cinnamon Roll Cookies

I’ve sort of dropped the ball again on posting recipes. After we moved we didn’t do much cooking from scratch. We were going on a vacation to Boston (another reason for the lack of posting) to visit our friends who were the biggest consumers of my desserts back when we all lived in Washington. I…

Feta-Pistachio Pesto Pasta

Feta-Pistachio Pesto Pasta

It’s been awhile since I’ve experimented with unique pestos, so in order to create a super easy dinner, we made a feta-pistachio with mint and spinach pesto to serve over pasta with a blend of green and black olives. I didn’t keep exact ratios of what we put in, but instead just kept throwing in…

Powdered Donut Holes

Powdered Donut Holes

After a particularly long day of meetings accompanied by stress, I had a lot I needed to do when I got home. But the only thing I wanted to do was make powdered donut holes, like the crazy processed ones I used to eat as a kid. Stress baking at its best. These donut holes…

Classic German Chocolate Cake

Classic German Chocolate Cake

While not as impressive (or quite as much work) as the awesome Momofuku birthday cake, I wanted to have a cake in the fridge to pull out when Dustin’s parents arrived as a belated birthday present. My mom sent me some bake even strips awhile back that I had completely forgotten about, and now I finally had…

Zucchini Crusted Buffalo Chicken Fingers with Hatch Chile Ranch Dressing

Zucchini Crusted Buffalo Chicken Fingers with Hatch Chile Ranch Dressing

Perfect for football season, these baked zucchini crusted buffalo chicken fingers are a good way to get a little extra veggies in without realizing you are actually eating vegetables. You can’t taste the zucchini beneath a healthy layer of Frank’s hot sauce. Dustin commented that there couldn’t be very much zucchini in there, but there…

Crockpot Whiskey Peach BBQ Chicken

Crockpot Whiskey Peach BBQ Chicken

Sorry for a summery recipe when we are in the heart of September, but when peaches were in the peak of their season several weeks ago, I really wanted to make a version of Pioneer Woman’s Whiskey Peach BBQ chicken using actual peaches instead of peach preserves. Obviously fresh peaches aren’t in season all year round,…
