Sriracha Soy Chicken and Vegetable Vermicelli

I much prefer stir fries with noodles instead of rice. As a kid, I hated rice. I am not quite sure when I came around to it, probably around the same time I started eating sushi (in my 20s.) I would always prepare a plate of ramen noodles instead of rice whenever I ate any sort of stir fry dish ....more

TexMex Pulled Pork Sandwiches

When I first moved to Texas, I had never tried queso. Once I tried it, there was no going back. Any party is made better with a crockpot, a block of Velveeta and a couple cans of Rotel ....more

White Chicken Enchiladas

I don't love enchiladas usually. Miss F and C are both huge fans and so is my father. I made a few meals to take to my parents to have while she recovered from hip surgery and I knew enchiladas would be perfect ....more

Baked Artichoke Chicken Pasta

I made this dish to send to my parents for them to have while my mom was recovering from hip surgery. I made the entire recipe, but split it into two baking pans, one for us and one to send home with my dad. My dad loves anything with artichokes, so I knew this would be a hit with him ....more


I love Bollilos. Our grocery sells them for 25 cents a piece and they are great for sandwiches, especially tortas. I have wanted to try and make them at home for the longest time (nearly as long as I have been wanting to make tortillas, which I still have yet to tackle.)...more

Baked Penne with Chicken, Broccoli and Mozzarella

I love any sort of baked pasta dish. They are great to prepare in advance, but they usually dirty a bunch of dishes, pots and pans in the process. This recipe cooks the broccoli along with the pasta, which means one less pot to clean up ....more

Pulled Pork Tacos with Sweet Chili Slaw

I am obsessed with sweet chili sauce. One of my favorite places for happy hour sushi serves it with fried calamari, it is perfection. I also love dipping crab Rangoon into it ....more

Baked Crispy Chicken Sandwich

I always make sandwiches at least once a week in the summer. I am particular about sandwiches though, your regular sub sandwich with lunchmeat just doesn't cut it. I have to have a warm sandwich and crispy chicken sandwiches are one of my favorites ....more

Herb Marinated Pork Tenderloin

I initially made this for my dinner party, but I like it so much, I made it for a family dinner at home a week later. The pork is flavored perfectly by the herbs and fresh lemon juice. All the herbs came from mom's herb garden, they were left over from the dinner party and held up nicely in the refrigerator, the rosemary keeps for quite a long time ....more

Romaine with Creamy Italian Dressing

I love salad. Growing up I hated salad and we had it every night. I have been getting better about serving salad more often with dinner and Miss F has finally started to eat it, though she only eats lettuce and croutons ....more
