Mexican Chiles Rellenos with Spicy Rojo Sauce

I have said it a million times, and I will say it a million more…I absolutely love Mexican food!  I love everything about it, the tastes, the complexity of the flavors and the simplicity of it all at the same time.  Now I am saying the simplicity in making the ingredients meld together to create…

Bacon, Egg & Cheese Biscuit Bake

My father grew up in the midst of the Great Depression, he was also the youngest boy of twelve children, born to Italian Immigrant parents, he was the first generation born in this country, and his father passed away shortly after the birth of my aunt, his sister.  This left my Grandmother Lena with the…

Arepas Venezuelan Style

I am a huge fan of Latin cuisine.  The flavors, the simplicity and complexity of it all at once, is something that feels like home to me.  Arepas are a staple in most Venezuelan and Colombian homes, and served at most meals.  They remind me of the Italian cornmeal cakes I ate as a child,…

Stuffed Buffalo Chicken Rolls

This is one of those recipes that you throw together because you just want something different to make for the family.  My family loves buffalo chicken in many forms.  I simply took all of the elements of buffalo chicken and made them into an elegant rolled chicken breast, that is beyond amazing.  I love this…

Saucy Cheeseburger Empanadas

This recipe is super easy, super delish, and tastes just like a cheeseburger!  I don’t like to fry my empanadas, and for years I have been using a cream cheese dough to make mine baked, in the oven, but lately I have been using puffed pastry because I find it can replicate a traditional empanada…

Italian Ricotta Meatballs

I have found that meatballs are a very personal and potentially, a very touchy subject, in some circles.  Mostly by anyone who cooks!  Everyone believes that their “ball game” is tight, and theirs are the best.  I am no exception to this.  I have found that recently I have upped my game, by adding fresh…

Tex Mex Skillet Chicken with Charred Poblanos

This is the perfect dish for a busy weeknight, or lazy day lunch.  Using leftover chicken or store bought rotisserie chicken, makes this come together rather quickly, it’s perfect.  You can even char the poblanos one day before you plan to make this, seed them and chop, and put in a sealed container for the…

You Do You. I’m Good.

 have a confession to make.  I have never been the chick that takes unsolicited advice, (unless it’s where to score killer heels, how I can achieve a non-surgical butt lift, or how to nab a lip plumper, that will give me Angelina Jolie-esque, lips) nor can I handle stark criticism, very well.  It’s not that…
