Brisket Carnita Tacos

This is a recipe I shared several months ago on the website that I’ve since altered to be cooked in a dutch oven and made changes to the recipe. This is one of my family’s all time favorite meals. Who doesn’t love a good taco, right? And nothing beats the sweet and tangy flavor of…

Eggplant Parmesan

Eggplant Parmesan is entirely underrated in my opinion. Why? Probably because almost every restaurant rendition I’ve ever had is a greasy, fried, sloppy mess with an overwhelming amount of cheese served over overcooked pasta. And if you try to make it the way it gets served up most places, your kitchen is covered in frying…

Braised Beef Short Ribs

Short ribs are arguably one of the best cuts you could possibly indulge in; they consist of a portion of the rib bone still surrounded by meat of varying thickness. They are often best cooked slowly for maximum flavor and tenderness. And most often when searching how to cook these guys you’ll see them braised,…

Classic Brisket

A good classic brisket is in my top five favorite meals of all time. The tender meat, the sweet caramelized onions, the delectable crust that forms from the searing. OH, it’s just heaven. I mean, seriously, if you’ve never had brisket made like this then you’ve never had brisket. I use brisket meat for many…

Moroccan Braised Beef & Chickpeas

Let me start by saying, this is probably my favorite meal of all time. Since I first made it, it’s been in a place of honor in my stomach (heart). It’s not a weeknight dinner, it’s the kind of slow cooked divinity you make on the weekend while you’re home (maybe it’s raining out) so…

Garlic Ginger Asparagus w/ Tahini Lemon Sauce

Ah , asparagus, the vegetable I used to turn my nose up at. Now, one of my favorite veggies to whip up. I like my asparagus roasted with a nice char at the tops, but still with some bite at the bottom. This asparagus is brightened with the addition of some fresh ginger and the…

Mississippi Pot Roast

I know what you’re thinking. Does the world need another pot roast recipe? And the answer is yes and it’s this one. You’ve probably seen the phrase “Mississippi Pot Roast” thrown around a lot on Pinterest. And you know, I’m not really sure what the history is behind it or if it is in fact…

Marinated London Broil

To be honest I never really liked making or eating a piece of London Broil until I learned that I was cooking it entirely wrong. London Broil refers to the method of cooking, less so the cut (usually a thin top round or flank steak) but you will see it labeled “London Broil” in most…

Indian Butter Chicken (Paleo)

Indian food is one of my all time favorite foods to enjoy. And perhaps because there’s so few Indian restaurants where I live, i’ve spent hours looking for homemade recipes and playing with spices in my own kitchen. One popular dish I see a lot is butter chicken, which I’ve had at restaurants and absolutely…

Veggie Breakfast Casserole

Ah, nothing like breakfast casserole for dinner right? It’s easy to throw together and hands off while it cooks. When i’m not sure what to make for dinner, I almost always have eggs and some vegetables that need to be used before they spoil. So a veggie breakfast casserole is perfect to make on a…
