Eggplant and Mushroom Bolognese

Eggplant and Mushroom Bolognese
Posted in : Dinner on by : Pamela Reynoso

      This is so amazing! It is full of veggies and wonderful flavor.  The meatiness of the mushrooms and creaminess of the eggplant really make this meal.  I added spicy sausage because my husband is not a big sauce or eggplant guy.  The sausage added a nice spicy kick and kind of masted

Sage and Rosemary Marinaded Sapre Ribs

Sage and Rosemary Marinaded Sapre Ribs
Posted in : Dinner on by : Pamela Reynoso

    This is such an easy and delicious meal to throw together.  Although you can grill these ribs after an hour in the marinade, I really love to leave them for a day or two.  Something about the fresh herbs and olive oil really soaks into the meat leaving it full of flavor,  super tender, and

Mushroom, Spinach, and Chicken Pasta Dinner

Mushroom, Spinach, and Chicken Pasta Dinner
Posted in : Dinner on by : Pamela Reynoso

This was such an easy pasta dinner to throw together.  Substituting cooked rotisserie chicken makes getting this meal on the table even quicker.  About once a week my husband brings home a cooked chicken. I like to use the leftover chicken for this meal, Chicken Enchiladas,  or Cream of Chicken Soup.    I added extra

Eggplant Rollatini

Eggplant Rollatini
Posted in : Dinner on by : Pamela Reynoso

          This is one of my favorite vegetarian meals.  We are not vegetarians and usually have protein with each meal.  This meal , however, is so hearty you won’t miss the meat.  The creaminess of the cheese and the freshness of the thyme pair beautifully to make this a family favorite.

Garlic and Herb Grilled Salmon

Garlic and Herb Grilled Salmon
Posted in : Dinner on by : Pamela Reynoso

.     Fish is a quick meal to put together.  I find fish to be one of the harder things for me to get right.  I almost always overcook fish.  For some reason, only cooking fish for 3 or 4 minutes on each side just doesn’t seem long enough.  It is, trust me. I

Simple Breaded Chicken

Simple Breaded Chicken
Posted in : Dinner on by : Pamela Reynoso

.     This meal is a childhood favorite of mine.  I can still remember helping my mom dip the chicken into the egg and flour. Back then we flattened the chicken and cooked it in butter.  I now choose olive oil and skip the flattening unless the chicken is really thick. What You Need:

Ham and Broccoli Mac and Cheese
Posted in : Dinner on by : Pamela Reynoso

.   Mac and cheese is one of my all time favorites.  Jalapeño and Bacon Mac, Buffalo Chicken Mac, Kielbasa and Smoked Gouda are just a few of my favorites.  This version is a great way to use up that leftover Easter ham. I mean there are only so many ham sandwiches that a person

Oven Roasted Vegetables

Oven Roasted Vegetables
Posted in : Dinner, Side Dish on by : Pamela Reynoso

.   Oven roasted vegetables are a great, healthy way to add vegetables to any meal.  The different combinations are limitless.  My only suggestions is to place vegetables with the same cooking time together on the tray. The zucchini finished in 15 minutes. They could have stayed in the oven the whole time but they

Chicken and Artichokes with Orzo

Chicken and Artichokes with Orzo
Posted in : Dinner on by : Pamela Reynoso

.   One of the best meals I ever had was chicken with artichokes at this great little Italian restaurant in town. Then one day, they changed chefs and shortly after that they closed.  I have dreamt of that meal for years.  I have read about and made, many  versions of this meal but to

Cajun Salmon

Pork Chops and Vegetables

Pork Chops and Vegetables
Posted in : Dinner on by : Pamela Reynoso

    This is a great way to cook pork.  If you have never brined anything before you really need to try this.  I promise the pork will not be salty.  The brine tenderized and helps keep the pork juicy, even if you slightly overcook it.  Don’t brine meat this way!  It will be SALTY!!!  But, it

BBQ’ed Ribs

BBQ’ed Ribs
Posted in : Dinner, Entertaining on by : Pamela Reynoso

.   When I first made this dish, I wasn’t sure about the vinegar. I had originally read a recipe where you marinade the ribs overnight in 8 cups of vinegar. I did it and they were great, but it seemed like such a waste of vinegar.  I then came up with this method.  Using
