Where Confidence Reluctance and Sass Come To A Boil

Badass Burning Flames

Ancho Oil

Mexican Rice Salad

May 15, 2024

"I made this salad for a cast party a few days ago and I can tell you not much of it was brought back home.  It's bursting with fresh flavor and can be put together in less than a half hour.  That frees up more time for margaritas.  Yay!  Win - win. "

Quinoa Salad & Grilled Chicken

August 25, 2020

"Here's a quick, easy weeknight meal that satisfies with flavorful lean protein and extra fiber. To be honest, this was the first time I ever cooked quinoa, but it won't be the last.  "

Knife & Fork Burger

August 22, 2020

"Go ahead and have that burger, just skip the bun entirely.  But, it won't be the same, you say?  You are right.  It will be even better.  Trust me.  "

Pork Vindaloo Stew

August 11, 2020

"This is the best Indian food I have ever prepared.  The seasonings are balanced and defined.  Definitely not a hot mess.  Nope.  Not scary at all."

Southwest Chicken Dinner Salad

August 5, 2020

"Perfect for after a long day when you'd just rather ride off into the sunset.  Oh, and tequila is involved, so that should make you feel better immediately."

Cowboy Steak Salad

July 16, 2020

"Rough day of roping and riding?  This one will tickle your sassafras.  Tons of flavor, zero stress.  Hop Sing would be impressed.  "

Black-Eyed Pea Salsa

July 7, 2020

"Black-eyed peas might not immediately come to mind when you think about salsa, but go on, try it.  I'm confident you'll be hooked."

Pico de Gallo

January 9, 2019

"We are having tacos tonight and I prefer to serve Pico de Gallo instead of salsa or taco sauce.  Make your Pico a few hours before dinner time so the flavors have time to mingle.  Enjoy."

Easy Roasted Potatoes

October 9, 2018

"Here's a stupid-easy way to cook potatoes with minimal prep time so that you can move on and do other things.  "

Beef Stew

October 9, 2018

"A meal that will put Dinty Moore and Hungry Man to shame.  No processed crap.  Just honest, good food."
