Szechuan Stir-Fried Steak

Since Matt moved down here from Montana, I think he really misses red meat.  So, once and a while I’ll make a meat dish, although I’m really more of a chicken and fish kinda girl.  On our honeymoon, we bought a Cooking for Two cookbook, and I’ve been trying to explore recipes out of it.  We’ve made the Szechuan Stir-Fried Steak a few times.  It’s pretty quick, easy, and yummy!

MessHall Menu

The dream was to go on a wonderful, fabulous, exotic vacation after graduation.  Unfortunately, I had to start work right away and only got a couple of weeks off.  Instead of my wonderful, fabulous, exotic vacation – which would have been more stressful than necessary due to time and money constraints – we decide to explore Los Angeles in the ways that we always said we would.  (more…)

Garlic-Bacon Mashed Red Potatoes

Tonight the hubby was planning on grilling steaks.  And, what goes better with steaks than potatoes?  I was planning on just going for my regular mashed red potatoes, but then hubby had the idea of adding garlic and bacon.  Um…genius!!!  I threw some extra ingredients into the bowl…and poof! Garlic-Bacon Mashed Red Potatoes were born! (more…)

I’m not a huge lemon bar fan, but I’ve been craving some sort of citrus dessert – so I decided on glazed lime cakes.  Last Sunday, I had plans for a picnic with friends, and I decided that it would be the perfect opportunity to bake something fun. (more…)

Red Curry Chicken

One of my favorite lazy night, take out foods is Thai.  And one of my Thai dishes is red curry chicken.  I’ve been wanting to try to make this dish for a while, and finally got the chance. (more…)

Champagne Fruit Salad

Matt and I had a ton of champagne left from our wedding, and so I decided to do something fun with it!

We’re not big champagne drinkers, and have had way too many mimosas trying to drink down our champagne stash, so a fruit salad champagne treat sounded like a delicious way to mix it up. (more…)

I have been dying to go to brunch forever now! But, my husband is not much of a breakfast person.  If you gave him the choice, he would opt for a hearty/meaty lunchtime meal than a delicate scrumptious brunch.

So, I made the decision to leave him at home and bring my mom out for a nice, Saturday morning brunch on the beach. (more…)
