Fake Kentucky Hot Browns

I say they’re fake because I starting looking into what the real deal might be after seeing one of those recipe videos that are all the rage on Facebook right now. According to Wikipedia, a Kentucky Hot Brown (or Hot Brown) “…is an open-faced hot sandwich of turkey and bacon, covered in Mornay sauce…” and…

Pulled Pork Burritos

Why didn’t I think to do this sooner? There are so many food trucks that exist in the world that are already converting things into burritos, like Chicken Tikka Masala burritos and Sisig burritos so why not use up all this extra pulled pork we had laying around by turning it into burrito-y goodness? I rolled…

Sloppy Mo’s (’cause it’s mo’ betta than Joe’s)

Who doesn’t love Sloppy Joes? I always used to wonder why people would use packets or cans of sloppy joe sauce growing up because I learned how to make them from scratch thanks for a cookbook for children that I once had. The ingredients were so easy, I couldn’t figure out why anyone would want…

Chicken and Dumplings

The weather is getting cooler, right? Maybe not in California exactly, but we can have wishful thoughts. Fortunately it is getting cooler in the evening, so at least dinner can still be all nice and warm and comforting and autumny. Chicken and Dumplings 1 whole chicken, washed and cut into quarters water 3 onions, cut…

Another Spaghetti Squash Creation

Mission: make healthy dinner quick with what’s on hand, which happens to be primarily ground turkey and spaghetti squash… aaaand GO! Now before some of you go all “WHAT?! There’s butter and cream in the recipe! How is that GOOD for you??” These are generally good fats that help with nutrient absorption and good fats…

Beanless Chicken Chili with Cauliflower

It’s been a long tiiiiime… since I posted anythiiiiing… Sorry about that guys. Life happened. I was busy adjusting to my new food life the last few months, trying to get better at understanding what works for a “Lean and Green” meal on my Medifast plan. I’ve also been thinking up and researching new recipes….

Healthier General Tso’s Chicken

So this recipe isn’t totally 100% on plan for me, but it’s delicious and I figured the extra little bit of non-plan items I was getting wouldn’t hurt too bad.  I really wanted some Chinese-ish for dinner (even though General Tso’s Chicken is totally an American thing… I think…), so I made a sauce that…

Gluten Free Corn Dog Bites

Corn dogs are amazing.  That’s all that really needs to be said about them.  Except that I want to add that homemade corn dogs are even better than amazing.  I’m still adjusting this recipe a little bit for the batter.  The corn meal is a little too gritty for my tastes so I’m testing doing…

Missing Recipe: Char Siu Marinade

A while back I posted about making Char Siu but I had lost the marinade recipe.  I lost it so hard that I can’t even find the original recipe online that I modified.  So I had to test again and I have a new one.  I’m testing the sauce today with pieces of pork butt, rather…

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…

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…
