Stuffed chili peppers are amazing. There are so many chili pepper varieties in the world, and so many of them are ideal for stuffing. They're the perfect vessels for all sorts of delicious goodness, it makes my head spin. One of the most popular peppers around is the Anaheim chili pepper. The Anaheim is a mild pepper with a thick enough flesh to be slightly meaty in texture, especially when…
More asparagus! We got a nice fat bundle of fresh asparagus from the grocery store the other day and didn't want it to go to waste, so we get asparagus twice in a row, this time in the form of a spinach-asparagus salad. Good thing for us, because this was one of our busy work days. Whenever we get slammed with work and other projects, we try to do quick…
Asparagus is officially in season. Outstanding! With the Spring comes all sorts of wonderful goodness, and we're taking advantage of it with a bit of breakfast in bed. Well, Patty gets to take advantage of it while I get to cook, but I'm not actually complaining. This particular meal cooks up quickly and doesn't make a mess in the kitchen, so I can whip this together, crawl into bed so…
Patty and I like to visit Florida during the winter. It is cold where we live, and if we can get away for even a little while, we jump at the chance. The older we get, the longer we want to stay where it is warm. One of our favorite places is Anna Maria Island, Florida. The locals refer to the place as AMI. It is on the gulf side,…
This is the tail end of our icy-cold season and we're now starting to think about our gardens, so it's time to get in a last blast of bone-warming comfort food in the form of split pea soup. We only make this a couple times a year, maybe three times. We can make a whole pot and it will last us throughout the week for a dinner and then the…
This is a day for the wonderful poblano pepper. And by that, I mean roasted poblano pepper. And more than one because when it comes to poblano peppers, more is better than fewer. One of the things I love about the poblano pepper is the way it roasts. It is a thicker walled pepper, so when you roast it, the skin crackles off nicely, leaving the thick roasted flesh of…
We've been experimenting lately with vegetable purees. Do not fear the puree! I want to write an article with that title so I can expound on the awesomeness that is the vegetable puree. Talk about a way to get your veggies AND pack in the flavor. It's easy to do and you can use a vegetable puree to form a sauce, a soup, swirl it into stews and more. For…
Happy Thirsty Thirteenth! Patty here. Since St. Patrick’s Day is coming up, or as I like to say, St. Patty’s Day (Cuz it’s my day. Ha!) I figured I’d go with a green drink. For me there is no better way to add green than with Midori. Melon flavored drinks are a bit odd for me because I've never been a huge fan of melons. All of them. You might…
Have you ever tasted decadence on a spoon? Behold - Bacon Jam. I've heard bacon jam referred to as Devil's Delight somewhere, and oh my, is that an accurate moniker. Bacon jam is deliciously savory and sweet and works as a spread over cheeses and breads, or as a flavor blast addition to meats or sandwiches. And so much more! Can you tell we both love bacon jam?  I've been…
Time to get ready for St. Patrick's Day! Patty and I are both Irish so we revel in the St. Patrick's day festivities. Patty's grandmother was 100% Irish, though she was raised in the U.S., and I have a lot of Irish in my bloodline. We celebrate as most of us do in the U.S., with food and fun gatherings. We aren't throwing a party this year, but we ARE…
St. Patrick's Day is on the way, and we know you're already looking for traditional recipes to prepare for the family or for your big gathering. In the U.S., St. Patrick's Day is a traditional party day, with green beer pretty much everywhere, but it's also a traditional foodie day. We're happy for that! Both Patty and I are part Irish, so we're very familiar with many of the staples…
