Spicy Shrimp Tacos with Cilantro Lime Slaw

Spicy Shrimp Tacos with Cilantro Lime Slaw

 Growing up in the Southwest gave me a love for spicy goodness, so Friday when I opened the refrigerator to a head of cabbage and some shrimp…BAM!  I thought tacos (for some reason).  It was probably also slightly inspired by the fact that I keep soft flour tortillas in the pantry as a very important […]

Blue Cheese Dressing

Blue Cheese Dressing

Do you ever just stand there at the grocery store and stare at the umpteen salad dressings and hem and haw over what looks the most natural and fresh?  If you are like me, you have realized that sometimes making dressing is just the only way to truly enjoy a special meal. Well, yesterday was Father’s Day so […]

Spicy Sesame Ginger Marinade

Spicy Sesame Ginger Marinade

This is a quick and simple marinade to dress up even the most basic budget friendly chicken legs!  Your family will love it!  Naturally, I use my Ninja to make the chopping extra fast. We all know I love my ninja…Don’t even get me started on that because it is the perfect size for marinades […]

Skordalia and Walnut Pesto

Skordalia and Walnut Pesto

As clean white linens blow in the warm breeze behind me, I sit at this bar in the middle of an orange grove chatting with Ingrid.  She tells fascinating stories of her childhood and how she would come to Greece every summer from Germany by way of trains.  She tells of how she and Jorgos fell in love. She hands […]

Simple Caesar Salad Dressing

Simple Caesar Salad Dressing

Today is just the kind of day where I feel like keeping things fresh and simple! I am also totally ready for summer and farmer’s markets and cookouts with friends!!!!  Store bought dressings just don’t get it done and your friends will be so delighted when you whip up this homemade dressing for them the next time […]

Kickin’ Wing Sauce

Kickin’ Wing Sauce

Straight from The Kicker himself…This Wing Sauce is one Greg has come up with over the years.  With the Super Bowl coming up (if the weather behaves) I figured now would be a great time to give this to you.  Being married to a football player, we have certainly had our share of Super Bowl Parties over the […]

Chimichurri Time

Chimichurri Time

It’s Chimichurri Time! Chimichurri Sauce is just one of those things that I could honestly make everyday.  I am sure I tasted it in a Brazilian Steakhouse or some other venue prior to making it myself in Atlanta, but it was an article in the paper about grilling meats that suddenly made me want to make it. […]

Bruschetta and The Moose

Bruschetta and The Moose

There is just something about the sight of a Moose running through your neighbor’s pasture that strikes fear in one’s being… Here in Montana, it isn’t everyday we get such a treat, but then again you really don’t want to come very close to one of these creatures.  They are scary!!  We have seen 2 in […]

Rootie’s BBQ Sauce

Rootie’s BBQ Sauce

Here is a fun BBQ Sauce we make in our home sometimes.  Appropriately named for The Bitterroot Valley and the fact it has Root Beer in it… Try it on a burger or maybe baste it on a whole chicken and throw it on your grill!  I love to butterfly the chicken and even when the outdoor […]
