Side Dish

Browned Butter Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Browned Butter Roasted Brussels Sprouts

We made these delicious brussels sprouts for Thanksgiving dinner, but they were so simple that we’ll probably make them again for Christmas or even just a regular dinner. Who would have thought that we’d be excited to eat brussels sprouts, but they seem to be a trendy menu item at a lot of restaurants (the…

Hatch Chile Con Queso + Hatch Chile Guacamole

Hatch Chile Con Queso + Hatch Chile Guacamole

We bought 25 lbs worth of Hatch chiles at the grocery store’s roasting party. Back in Texas, and even in Washington, the grocery stores we frequented sold them just about every weekend in August, but here in Cali, I had to do a little research and find the one Sunday that a grocery store near…

Tater Tots

Tater Tots

The closest I ever thought I’d get to eating tater tots at home was glancing down the frozen foods aisle and hoping Erin would say “Go for it babe. Get your frozen tater tots today!” I know that day is never going to come. Being realistic and in deep desire for my tots, I decided…

Tex-Mex Refried Beans

Tex-Mex Refried Beans

I never realized how easy it is to have restaurant-style refried beans in the privacy of your own home until just recently. I probably should have begun trying to make these the minute we left Texas to curb any Tex-Mex cravings (canned refried beans don’t even come close to the real deal). Now that we…

Pumpkin Dinner Rolls

Pumpkin Dinner Rolls

While the rest of our meal wasn’t entirely successful, the dinner rolls I made to complement it were the complete opposite and definitely the highlight of the meal. I halved the original recipe for the two of us from Kirbie’s Cravings and King Arthur Flour, and over the course of two days, Dustin and I…

Beecher’s Poutine

Beecher’s Poutine

One of our new discoveries in Seattle has been poutine, a delectable dish from our brethren just north in Canada. It’s Canada’s version of chili-cheese fries. Except that the chili is beef gravy, and the nacho or melted cheese becomes cheese curds. It really is just “fancy” cheese fries, but it makes you feel so…

Blue Cheese Broccoli Casserole

Blue Cheese Broccoli Casserole

Dustin said if there are two words that turn him off to a dish, they are “broccoli” (or any other vegetable I’m sure) and “casserole,” but let me tell ya, this is the way to eat your broccoli, or any other vegetable for that matter. I’ve always really enjoyed broccoli with cheese (with a low…

Green Chile Mashed Potatoes

Green Chile Mashed Potatoes

I love the creamy mashed potatoes my Grandma makes, and they are a really simple side dish. Each time I’ve made them I have to ask my mom exactly what she does because it seems no matter how hard I try, I can’t remember what to do even though the steps are ridiculously simple. Now…

Baked Fries with Roasted Garlic Aioli

Baked Fries with Roasted Garlic Aioli

It’s Super Bowl time! We are ready for some football, and FRIES! Yes, homemade fries! Who knew making homemade, baked fries could be so delicious? Dustin and I thought the only way we’d ever get good fries was to get them at a restaurant (deep fried), but we have since changed our mind after trying…

Holy Guacamole

Holy Guacamole

Hands down, the best guacamole we’ve ever had comes from Boudro’s on the Riverwalk in San Antonio. Most of the Riverwalk is a giant tourist trap, but there are a few gems for which it’s worth a once San Antonio native like Dustin venturing out among the throngs of people. Boudro’s guacamole alone is enough…
