Kalua Pig

So… yeah… Kalua Pig.  Do I really need to say much more than it’s FREAKING AMAZING!?!  Imma just hop right into the recipe here, guys.  This is an easy one, and you don’t even need to build an imu in your backyard to roast that pig. Kalua Pig (in an oven) 1 5-7 pound pork…

Parmesan Risotto

Holy crap it’s been a while since I’ve posted in here.  I’m really sorry guys.  I’m even sorry that it’s like a never ending apology show below the actual recipes and food posts that go up in here.  There has been quite a bit going on though… First is that my job has been crazy….

Chicken Teriyaki

Still catching up, folks.  Still catching up.  Sorry about that.  I’ll get caught up eventually. A while back though, I made Chicken Teriyaki for a movie night dinner.  I wanted to make my own teriyaki sauce because a lot of the pre-bottled stuff is too salty for my liking or it just plain tastes funny….

Chili con Fway

Archaellys’ chili is hands down my favorite chili.  True statement right there.  I’m a lucky girl and for the most part this is pretty healthy AND comforting, so when I’m down Arc has been known to make a batch of chili to cheer me up.  That Arc though… Of course, there are ways to increase…

Taco Night

Ummmm… tacos.  Yes.  I love tacos. I dunno that I actually have to post a recipe for these, but let me know in the comments if you think I should or if you have any specific questions.  There’s so many pieces to assembling tacos like this that maybe I just don’t know where to begin….

Buffalo Chicken Spaghetti Squash

Have you ever had the magical vegetable that is spaghetti squash?  I have to admit that I wasn’t super fond of it the first time I tried it and occasionally I’m not so keen on what I’ve done with it.  I’m still learning what flavors I like when using spaghetti squash.  Sometimes it ends up…

Roast Beef

Sometimes I just crave beef.  I try not to eat too much red meat, but there are times when a big piece of cow just hits the spot.  I picked up a 4 pound rump roast at the store and decided to roast it up.  Served it up with some roasted asparagus and ranch style…

Gluten Free Orange Chicken

I used to eat Chinese take out all the time for lunch when I worked at the nursery.  There was a local restaurant within walking distance that had a really good deal on lunch specials.  It got to the point that they recognized our work number and we had the lunch specials memorized by number….

Corned Beef and Cabbage

Wanna hear something mind blowing, my fellow Americans?  I’ve heard that corned beef and cabbage isn’t really a traditional Irish meal for St. Patrick’s Day.  Whaaaaaaaaaaat? Normally I would get all geeky and research this, but I’m going to go the lazy route and simply say that corned beef and cabbage is a tradition in…

Movie Night Noms: Chicken Pot Pie

When Arc completed South Park: The Stick of Truth, we thought what better for movie night than to watch South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut.  Of course that only meant that I had to make chicken pot pie, riiiiight?  Oh yes.  Chicken freaking pot pie… I’ve done this with traditional pie dough, as you’ll see…

Chicken Curry

Curry is really awesome.  What I like about it is that it’s actually really versatile.  There’s Thai curry, Japanese curry, Chinese curry, Indian curry… Red curry, yellow curry, green curry… I feel a little bit like I’m writing a Dr. Seuss book: One Curry, Two Curry, Red Curry, Yellow Curry.  I never really adhere too…

Pot Roast

Pot Roast.  Two magical words right there.  POT freaking ROAST. Pot roast was one of my absolute favorites as a kid.  My aunt would make it for me when I would come for my annual summer visits and I didn’t even care if it was hot outside and the oven warmed up the house.  She…
