Crockpot Korean Short Ribs Tacos Bento #59

January 23, 2013

Recently, a coworker was talking about how much she loved cooking with her crockpot.  She described how easy it was to use, and how much her family loved the meals made with the crockpot.  I have owned the same crock pot for over 15 years, and can literally count on 2 hands, the number of […]

Kale and Brussel Sprouts Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette #SaladJam Bento #53

January 3, 2013

Ok…I’m a little annoyed.  My favorite photo editing site (www.ipiccy.com) has been hacked.  I love editing my pictures and using the cool KG Hope font on ipiccy, so I’m a bit bummed that their site has been compromised.  Hopefully they will be back up and running tomorrow.  But anyway, time to discuss today’s salad. It […]

Shrimp & Lobster Mac & Cheese

For me, macaroni and cheese is the ULTIMATE comfort food.  I love when it’s warm and cheesy, and served in a nice BIG bowl.  Today I was in my FAVORITE grocery store ALDI http://aldi.us/index_ENU_HTML.htm and saw frozen raw Maine lobsters in the freezer section for $9.99.  Now lobster is not an item I tend to buy often, […]

Sugar Glazed Chicken Meatball Sandwich

Whenever I make something, I am always trying to find ways in which to make it better.  I love ground chicken, and tend to use it a lot to make chicken sandwiches.  Awhile ago I made these chicken sliders  http://bit.ly/T8vkZx and they were a big hit.  As a result, I decided to make something similar, but with […]

Roasted Vegetables on Grilled French Bread with Fresh Mozzarella & Basil

I have to admit that I am the only one in my house that really enjoys vegetables like zucchini and eggplant. I’ve tried to introduce it to my family, in a variety of dishes, but they just don’t like it.  Whenever I purchase these vegetables, I tend to slice/dice/chop and freeze, so that they don’t […]

Chicken Fried Rice Bento #45

Chicken Fried Rice

We eat a lot of rice in my house.  I make rice at least 3 times a week. Having a japanese rice cooker, makes cooking rice EFFORTLESS (if you don’t have a rice cooker, GET ONE!!).  I am not a fan of leftover/reheated rice, but for dishes like fried rice, it’s perfect.  Fried rice is […]

Barilla Bow Tie Tomato & Carrots Pasta with Shrimp Alfredo Sauce Bento #44

December 11, 2012

Recently I posted about finding Barilla vegetable pasta at Big Lots http://wp.me/p2N4wQ-lK  This pasta is perfect if you are trying to introduce vegetables to your picky eater.  My kids aren’t picky eaters, but I still thought that this pasta would be  great for them to try.  I decided to pair the pasta with an easy alfredo […]

Cilantro Crab & Shrimp Cake with Ginger-Lime Mayo Bento #43

Cilantro Crab & Shrimp Cake in Lim-Ginger Mayo

I am always on the hunt for a great crab cake recipe.  I love crab cakes that don’t contain a lot of fillers, and are packed with lumpy crab meat.  I also love shrimp, and thought that putting both crab and shrimp together would make the perfect combination.  As I thought about what I wanted […]
