Beer-Braised Turkey Tacos

Beer-Braised Turkey Tacos

The fact that I almost forgot about this dinner makes me very very sad. I think the issue is that kitten pictures are taking over my computer, pushing the food photos farther and farther...

Sundried Tomato Risotto

Eggplant Parmesan Lasagna with Swiss Chard

Thai Noodles with Ground Chicken and Crispy Shallots

Thai Noodles with Ground Chicken and Crispy Shallots

The other day I spent a good four hours flipping through our stacks of old food magazines. Mainly Bon Appetit and Cooking Light, with a few others mixed in. A solid 18 months of...

Brussels Sprouts with Proscuitto and Pecans

Brussels Sprouts with Prosciutto and Pecans (and meet my Adopt-a-Blogger!)
