My wife came down stairs after a nap and spotted this Spinach and Strawberry Salad with Grilled Lemon Chicken just as soon as I was done photographing at and just starred at it haha.  She was like, “what is that and can I eat it?!”  After a few bites she said with her mouth completely full, “this is what I want to eat every day of my life.”  I just laughed, but she’s right this Spinach and Strawberry Salad with Grilled Lemon Chicken is dang delicious!! If you’ve been following me for a bit you know I am all about…

Mediterranean Turkey Burger with Zucchini Fritter and French Remoulade

Every summer that comes along I always get pressured to buy turkey burgers by the pound at least once a week from my wife, so I whipped up this Mediterranean Turkey Burger with Zucchini Fritter and French Remoulade.  She is literally obsessed with turkey burgers, as are my in-laws, so every time I make them they seem to make arrangements to come over J; Needless-to-say, I live with Turketarains!  If you aren’t sure what that is, it’s someone who has taken the concept of eating turkey as much as possible to another level.  Now I’m not saying that it’s all…

Grilled Chicken Satay with Sweetened Soy Noodles

chicken-satay-7

I love simple foods, both to make and eat, and this Chicken Satay with Sweetened Soy Noodles is that to the T.  Big flavor, easy to prepare, and something a little different is what I am always on the lookout for.  If my daughter isn’t digging the peanut buttery taste from the chicken I know she’ll at least dig the sweetened soy noodles, which has veggies in it! To begin this recipe, I boiled the noodles first and then chilled them.  You can use a rice noodle, udon, soba, you name it, it can be used.  One of the coolest…

Turmeric Chicken with Honey Butter and Coconut Cous Cous

turmeric-chicken-recipe-4

This Turmeric Chicken with Honey Butter and Coconut Cous Cous is one of the cooler things I’ve cooked in the last few weeks.  I’ve baked a ton of good stuff lately but haven’t had much time to get creative and make a tasty meal in awhile, so when this came up I was all in.  If you haven’t cooked with turmeric before don’t be worry it’s just like using any other spice, the trick is to balance out the flavors with things it goes well with like honey. Now because I didn’t want to smother the chicken in honey before…

Pumpkin Risotto Recipe with Candied Pecans

Pumpkin-Risotto-banner

Before I make any new recipe I definitely have a vision for what I want it to look like and what I want it to taste like.  Much like film directors I never get exactly what I want, but I always find that fine line of happiness with what I made.  However this Pumpkin Risotto Recipe with Candied Pecans got pretty dang close to what I was looking for in respect to how it looked and tasted. I used fresh pumpkin as a garnish, not as the main pumpkin ingredient into the risotto.  In fact, I used canned pumpkin because…
