Light dinner or impressive lunch, this simple salad is one of my favorites.  I usually roast the chicken breasts myself but if time is short, pick up already roasted breasts from your favorite market.

Slow Cooker Beef Brisket

January 28, 2017

Found it! A great brisket recipe that I can make!  For some reason roasts and briskets have never turned out great for me but this changed my track record.  I like the “do ahead” of the slow cooker and I served it with mac and cheese and a salad.

Beef Short Ribs

November 14, 2016

I love short ribs and these easy and delicious!  Serve over mashed potatoes.  So tender they just fall apart on your fork!  You can’t go wrong with an Ina recipe!

I love this dressing!  Try it on salad or as a dip.  The last time I made it, I left out the anchovy paste.  I have to say that the dressing was missing a bit of flavor without it so I will go back to adding that ingredient next time.

Mexican Chicken Soup

September 29, 2016

Just tried this for family dinner night, success! Make a green goddess dressing for a green salad on the side and you’ve got a simple and delicious meal.  If it all sounds too healthy just add quesadillas, chips and margaritas for appetizers!

Hands down my favorite filet sauce!  Boom!!!


Filet Mignon con Rajas The mild flavor of the meat is revved up with rich rajas con crema, a traditional dish of roasted poblano strips in cream.
