What is the key to great tasting chili? (cocoa powder) Many would suggest that you put a lot of meat and sausage to make it delicious….
I was a believer in meat until I attended a chili cook-off at a friend's house. Of course, I was sure I had made the winner, until I tried the host's chili. Something was different about his recipe and I couldn't figure out what.
This strawberry cheese cake smoothie is a dream. I love adding the word “cheesecake” to any recipe I can find.
Who doesn’t want to read about cheesecake? If this blog was more fun, I could rant about beefcake as well (my favorites are Daniel Craig and Edris Elba – who I would like to add are age appropriate beefcake for me since I am 49).
You can’t miss with this baked tilapia from frozen recipe. It is fast and easy - a perfect weeknight dish.
I keep talking about fish because it is a healthy form of protein. Cooking from frozen like my baked frozen salmon is a must for a busy household.
2 ingredient dough bagels? Yes! Frankly, I was skeptical of this famous Weight Watcher’s recipe.
I am a bagel snob. You will never find a supermarket fake bagel in my house. A former New Yorker, I also travel to Quebec every year.
This roasted veggie chili on a sheet pan is so easy! You only need to clean one pan after making it.
Why would you make chili on sheet pan? I know it sounds crazy but it allows you to roast cauliflower and a poblano chili. Have you ever had roasted veggies in chili?
This air fryer beef jerky recipe is for all of those looking for a new project. If you are like me, you are looking for some new projects.
Why air fryer beef jerky? Beef jerky is one of those foods that I would buy at the convenience store for a snack because many of the high sodium content and the questionable ingredients (mechanically separated chicken?).
Mexican zucchini boats are for those that love burritos but not burrito tummy. You know what I am talking about!
The burrito sits in your belly and you moan, “How did I eat the whole thing?”
These boats are like burritos without the moaning. You use zucchini - which is great replacement for foods like pasta - check out pasta and zucchini recipe and baked zucchini lasagna.

Can you bake frozen salmon? This is the wrong question.
The right question is, “Why haven’t you tried baking frozen salmon?”. Maybe you are one of those people who always has it together and remembers to take the salmon out of the freezer to thaw.
