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

Egg Fried Rice with Ginger, Sriracha Mayo


During this time of isolation I’ve been working on a house to flip. I have an Interior Design background and since it’s not my nature to just sit at home, I bought a house to keep me busy. And busy it’s been. We closed April 30th and I have about a week still of work until it’s done completely. That being said, some nights when I get home I really don’t want to cook. Solution, order out… anyway, we ordered from our local Chinese Restaurant and as per normal there was a lot of leftover white rice. So for lunch the next day I made this… It was delicious!

Lomo Saltado

Lomo Saltado…I’m sure a lot of people don’t even know what that is…so let me tell you…It’s pure deliciousness on a plate! A combination of Peruvian & Chinese. I usually order this yummy meal when we visit our local Ecuadorian restaurant El Sitio in Collingswood, NJ. But this time I wanted to try my hand at making it at home…end result – Fabulous!

Sweet Potato Fries With Swiss & Gruyère

Sweet Potato Fries

While we are all being ‘Alone Together’, I find I am really missing some of my favorite restaurants and foods they made. One of the things I miss is sweet potato fries. While I don’t fry at home, I decided to make them my healthy baked way. Coating the fries in egg whites gives them the crunchy outside without the fat. Then topping them with a lovely sauce of cheese didn’t make me feel so bad. They were really delicious! Continue reading

Pub Burgers with Bacon Jam

I had these super tasty burgers at the Iron Pier Craft House – a Gastropub in Cape May, NJ – with outdoor seating overlooking the Atlantic Ocean – a little too chilly on these December days but a great restaurant to visit in season. When making these burgers at home I added additional flavor in the meat with a bit of Brazilian Steakhouse seasoning and created my own Bacon Jam…I also substituted Havarti cheese…end result – Delicious!

Beef & Lamb Gyros Salad With Grilled Red Onions, Goat Cheese & Tzatziki Dressing

Beef & Lamb Gyros Salad With Grilled Red Onions, Goat Cheese & Tzatziki Dressing
I love a good Gyro and when I found the gyro meat package at Sam’s Club I was all in! Wanting to make it a little lighter than the wrap, I opted for a salad instead. I also swapped out the tomatoes for roasted red peppers because it’s hard to get a good tomato this time of year and truth be told I’m kind of a tomato snob…Well, it was everything I could have wanted in a great Gyro without the bread… Delicious!

Busiate con Zucca & Salsiccia

During our recent visit to NYC, Heidi and I visited Eataly on 5th Avenue to peruse their Italian goods. We both picked up this Busiate pasta and made a plan to each make something different with it…so, for today’s meal I roasted some butternut squash (Zucca) and cooked up some mild Italian sausage (Salsiccia) seasoned with a touch of nutmeg …added a white wine-cream sauce and voilà! A star was born… Continue reading
