Confit Chicken Wings with Asian Aioli

I saw this idea of cooking confit chicken wings on a tv show late one night. They did it overnight in the oven so I decided I could do the same thing overnight in my slow cooker. I did a different flavor to mine that took them over the top! Not to be eaten every day of course. My son loved them so much that he ate almost all of them, which is okay because my hips thanked me later! In any case these are also great to serve at parties…

Waldorf Chicken Salad Mini Croissant Sandwiches


So my Hubby is a CPA and this time of year his firm is hopping with tax returns! During this season I always make lunch on Fridays for the wonderful people who work with and for him. Last Friday I made little sandwiches filled with a version of Waldorf Salad. Since all the girls wanted the recipe, I decided to blog it for them. I did end up using an ingredient I had never used before. Needing to make 20 of these little gems and finding that one whole rotisserie chicken wasn’t enough I went to my Covid cupboard and pulled out some canned chicken I had purchased at Sam’s Club. I was hesitant to use them since I have never used canned chicken before, but was surprised how well they enhanced and stretched the salad. I love happy accidents! Continue reading

Miso Crusted Swordfish Tacos With Gochujang Slaw & Pickled Cucumbers


I’ve always been picky about the types of fish I like to eat. One fish that I made poorly when I was young and learning how to cook was swordfish. Well, it’s a new year and with 30 years of cooking experience I was sure to have better success! So here I went again trying my hand at Swordfish… Wow! Delicious! My hubby finished his Taco and then finished the Swordfish Sticks! It’s a very meaty fish and good for flash frying. Yay, success after all those years! Continue reading

Philly Cheese Steak Deep Dish Pizza, 80’s Style

I wanted to make this cheese steak pizza because I see people making them but not the way I remember eating them when I lived in Philly in the late 80’s and early 90’s. Although controversial among cheese steak ‘purists’, this is how I loved them when I lived there. So I decided to make the pizza my way… enter… ‘Processed Cheese!’ After the pizza came out of the oven a lovely layer of melted processed cheese was poured all over this beautiful deep dish and I was transformed to 1989 all over again… Now that’s what I’m talking about!

Spinach, Mushroom & Cheese Egg White Frittata


All of us I’m sure have the Go-To dinners when you just don’t want to fuss in the kitchen. One of my Go-To favorites is Pasta Carbonara. As easy as separating a bunch of eggs and boiling some pasta. Well, now on the following day for lunch I make an Egg White Frittata with whatever I have in the refrigerator. It’s my favorite way to use up all the unused egg whites and whatever cooked veggies I have as leftovers. Plus my Hubby will eat it again for breakfast the next morning! Win, Win, Win!

Greek Rainbow Quinoa Salad


I know I’m late to the party, but it took me until now to jump on the quinoa wagon… Now I can say I’m a fan! Wanting to make something easy that I can grab when I need a quick bite, and having way too many jars of Kalamata olives, I decided to go Greek. It turned out just what was needed for an easy ‘pick me up’ during the day. Continue reading
