Pork Banh Mi Egg Rolls

Pork Banh Mi Egg Rolls

As a food blogger, there’s nothing I love more than a culinary challenge!  Recently, I was invited to participate in a recipe contest for JSL Foods.  I was sent Wonton & Egg roll Wrappers and asked to use culinary creativity to come up with my own recipe.

Skillet Chicken Marsala & Orzo

Skillet Chicken Marsala & Orzo

One skillet dinners are so popular and with good reason!  Easy, quick perfect for weeknights and elevated enough to serve family-syle over the weekend! I developed this recipe with all of my favorite flavors in one place.  It’s not Chicken Marsala in the traditional sense, but this Skillet Chicken Marsala & Orzo incorporates all of the traditional flavors that you know and love!  Serving it over orzo is a perfect way to soak up all of the delicious juices.

Cider-Brined Pork Tenderloin is an easy way to take a basic cut of pork and launch you out of the stratosphere, yet easy enough to whip together on a weeknight!

Chicken Paillard

Chicken Paillard

Chicken Paillard is the perfect quick, tasty weeknight meal your family will love! The chicken turns out perfectly crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside.  I finish it off with a squeeze of fresh lemon and a sprinkle of fleur de sel to add brightness to the dish.  Pile on some fresh greens and you’ve got yourself a delicious dinner!

Salsa Verde Chicken Enchiladas

Salsa Verde Chicken Enchiladas

Salsa Verde Chicken Enchiladas are the perfect weeknight meal and packed with great flavor!  Our kids love Taco Tuesday!  In fact, they rarely will let a Tuesday go by without asking for tacos.  Since tacos can get ho-hum (at least for some of us), I love to shake things up on Tuesday’s with another Mexican food idea.

Deconstructed Pot Roast

Deconstructed Pot Roast

I have been making Pot Roast for years…I think it’s one of the first home cooked meals I mastered without having to look at a recipe.  Along the way, I have made so many adjustments, as is the same with so many recipes.  I’m always trying to find ways to elevate them, or make them even better. This is my Deconstructed Pot Roast, I hope you enjoy!

Sous Vide Eggs Benedict

Sous Vide Eggs Benedict

I am a huge fan of sous vide cooking…I use mine probably 3 times a week in my own kitchen.  Every year, it’s a tradition at our house to make a big brunch on Christmas morning at our house after our families come over and we always have Eggs Benedict.  I have used sous vide cooking for almost every protein known to man (or woman), but I hadn’t tried eggs yet.  To be honest, I was a little unsure if they would actually turn out superior to the traditional poaching method.  Boy, was I mistaken…
