Oven Roasted Red Potatoes with Rosemary and Thyme

Jan 27th, 2009 Posted in Side Dish | no comment »

I love red potatoes. They are by far my favorite. I love them boiled and roasted. I’ll even eat them cooked with nothing on them. This recipe, originally from Foodnetwork’s Paula Deen, is simply and delicious. The original one calls for garlic, which due to my food allergies, I substituted thyme.

Portobello Mushroom Burgers

Jan 25th, 2009 Posted in Main Dish | 4 comments »

On a whim, I bought portobello’s at the grocery store as a co-worker mentioned them at lunch. I’d never cooked them, and since I don’t have a grill or bbq, Jason got out his George Foreman grill. Which surprisingly worked very well.

It was a really yummy burger, and something that we’ll cook again. The original recipe is from AllRecipes.

Winter Slowdown

Things have been a little slow in the kitchen lately.

But I thought this McDonald’s burger from 1996 reminds me why I cook or go out to a quality restaurant.

Pear and Blue Cheese Salad

This is a delightful salad. Definitely makes some cheer in the winter. The mixing of the different greens is a wonderful contrast. While I wasn’t as fond of the dressing (not a big mustard fan), Jason loved it. I did add spinach to this salad as I wanted a more greens in it.

The original recipe is from the Food Network.

Roasted Acorn Squash with Orange-Ginger Dressing

This is a recipe from my friend, B. This acorn squash is very light and serves as a great change from the traditional heaps of brown sugar and marshmallow mix. This is sweet, yet not overwhelming.

Cream of Poblano Soup

Jan 5th, 2009 Posted in Main Dish, Soup | 4 comments »

I love this dish. It’s spicy and hearty. I usually make it a little thicker by adding more corn tortillas, and it makes a great dip for tortilla chips. It’s really the kind of meal I can just eat and eat.

Poblano Soup

The original recipe calls for chicken, which I just substituted for some pan-fried tofu.
