Sausage & Orzo Jambalaya

One of my favorite things to make is spicy Cajun and Creole food (New Orleans is one of my fav cities ever..the #FOOD though!) and I had grand visions of creating an awesome recipe this week for my blog. And considering it’s going to be a rainy Memorial Day weekend, why not make a big pot of something wonderful to stay indoors and savor while I’m at it?… Read More Sausage & Orzo Jambalaya

Red Beef Curry with Zucchini Noodles

Because we are in the middle of winter, I thought a delicious comfort food dish with a healthy twist would be perfect.

Super delicious and easy to make!… Read More Red Beef Curry with Zucchini Noodles

Seriously Delicious Taco Pizza

I’ve been on a spicy food kick lately. Maybe it’s the pseudo-Spring weather. Or maybe I’m just addicted. I decided to make a fun twist on pizza and make a seriously delicious Taco Pizza. Yes, TACOS. And PIZZA. All baked into a bubbling pile of goodness. This Taco Pizza first of all is the easiest thing to make, and the best tasting thing on the planet. Like a fiesta in your mouth.… Read More Seriously Delicious Taco Pizza

Indian Burgers with Curry Cilantro Slaw & Peanut Satay Yogurt Sauce

I recently did a food styling project for Morningstar Farms to promote some of their new products to local food editors in NYC, and one of them I got to sample and loved was their Spicy Indian Veggie Burger. I’m not normally a fan of frozen food products and I’m definitely not a Vegan, but I was really impressed with the flavor and texture of these, and decided to make a delicious Curry Cilantro Slaw to go with it along with a Peanut Satay Yogurt Sauce for topping served with some Grilled Pita.… Read More Indian Burgers with Curry Cilantro Slaw & Peanut Satay Yogurt Sauce

Healthy Homestyle Meatloaf w/ Ancho Chile-Red Pepper Glaze :: Wild Mushroom Risotto

OK, so I know Meatloaf is one of those dishes we’re all a little bored of by now. Not so glamorous or gourmet, and usually a quick go-to dish when we have nothing else in the fridge and want to make an easy dinner with a few ingredients on hand. Well that was the case… Read More Healthy Homestyle Meatloaf w/ Ancho Chile-Red Pepper Glaze :: Wild Mushroom Risotto

Crunchy Chicken Fajita Wraps w/ Habanero-Green Chile & Pepper Jack Cream

This is an easy, tasty dish I whipped up the other night that is a spin on Chicken Fajitas. The main difference being that these have a crunchy, toasted tortilla that you eat the Fajitas on – either flat like a pizza, rolled up like a burrito or wrap, or folded in half like a… Read More Crunchy Chicken Fajita Wraps w/ Habanero-Green Chile & Pepper Jack Cream

Spring Fever! Spicing It up with Caribbean Flavors

Since I have lived in New York City, this has probably been the longest winter known to man. Last week on another cold, rainy, dismal day I started dreaming about going somewhere warm, sunny and tropical. Where the skies and sea are blue, the sand is white and the warm tropical air breezes through the palm trees and you don’t have a care in the world. I started having flashbacks of a trip I took to Jamaica a while back where the islanders greet you with a smile and the pace of life is laid back, jovial and carefree. One of the things I remember most about my experience there was the food and how delicious it was.… Read More Spring Fever! Spicing It up with Caribbean Flavors
