Mushroom Stroganoff Stuffed Baked Potatoes

Mushroom Stroganoff Stuffed Baked Potatoes

In between projects on the road, we tend to load up on veggies at home, as the only veggie that we usually see when traveling is the celery next to the fried wings as we belly up to the bar at 8pm.  This recipe for Mushroom Stroganoff Stuffed Baked Potatoes is one I developed for Eat […]

Chorizo Potato Breakfast Tacos | Chez Us

Taco Tuesday

Okay, you have to believe us, we do have some new taco recipes coming.  All intentions of working the past weekend on the final touches of two that are pretty killer, but then work completely took over.  I know, yatta, yatta, yatta.  Next week we are going to blow your mind!  In the meantime, we […]

Slow Cooker Chicken with Buttermilk Dumplings

Slow Cooker Chicken with Buttermilk Dumplings

I thought autumn was here after we got back from Seattle in September.  We had a couple days of cold weather, which made me break out sweaters and order a new pair of loafers to keep cozy.  Then we had about one and a half days of rain, which made me break out the slow […]

Pork Tortilla Soup

Pork Tortilla Soup

We are big soup eaters, and especially during the colder months of the year.  One of our favorite cold month soups is a spicy chicken tortilla soup.  I decided to give chicken the night off, and developed this new and utterly delicious soup using pork.  This recipe for Pork Tortilla Soup is outstanding, and full […]

Mushroom Breakfast Burritos | Chez Us

Mushroom Breakfast Burritos

I do not have a taco for you this week.  Instead, I have breakfast burritos, which is kind of like a taco or least falls into the same category in my recipe book!     Now that I am working out a few days a week, I am on the lookout of easy breakfast meals […]

National Chili Month

National Chili Month 2014

I love; I say that sarcastically, all these foods that have their day or even months. National Twinkie Day. Sweet Chili Pepper Day. Hot dang dog week. You name it; there is a day or month for pretty much every food you may put in your body. For instance, did you know this month is […]

Bad Food and Bullets

Bad Food and Bullets

One of these is going to kill you. Which one, no one knows.   Last Saturday, we were driving home from a friend’s house and decided to take a different route. Changing it up, if you will. It was around 8:30 in the PM. I turned to The Lovely and Talented Denise Woodward and said […]



What’s In Season

Mushroom Chicken Alfredo Lasagna | Chez Us

Mushroom Chicken Alfredo Lasagna

Comfort food at it’s best, is exactly what this recipe for Mushroom Chicken Alfredo Lasagna is.  Inspired over a dinner in the Azores with our 18 year old nephew Matthew, who happens to enjoy cooking, he wondered out loud about a lasagna made with Alfredo sauce.  I tucked away that thought, as I knew it […]

Roasted Pear Crumble

Roasted Pear Crumble

Let me just start off by saying that this recipe is not an ordinary pear crumble, it has been taken to the next level by roasting the pears and by flavoring it with more of that amazing Tonewood Maple, which we are in love with.  This roasted pear crumble will definitely be making an appearance […]

Beef Stew with Potato Dumplings

Beef Stew with Potato Dumplings

It is definitely fall around our neighborhood.  What trees there are, are slowly turning shades of yellow and red.  The mornings are dewy and cold when I leave for the gym.  And the afternoons are crisp and slightly cooler come dinner time.  I have been slowly adding comfort food such as this beef stew with […]

Roasted Spaghetti Squash

Meatless Monday | Roasted Spaghetti Squash

Last week we received a spaghetti squash in our FullCircle delivery.  I realized that I have only shared the experience once before, and that was without a recipe.  We are big fans of this mysterious squash that resembles spaghetti once it is cooked, but knew very little about it.  After doing some poking around we […]

Delicata Stuffed Shells 1011

Delicata Squash Pasta Shells with Brown Butter Bechamel

Hello Old Friend!   You may have noticed that we have been in and out for the past couple months.  We have been going through some pretty big changes the past couple months.  Changes filled with mixed emotions;  bittersweet, and new growth.  We have always said, change is good.  It is good to shake things […]

Fall Cocktails

Dark and Stormy | Chez Us

Dark and Stormy

It was a dark and stormy night when we made this how-to-video for you, featuring one of our favorite cocktails, the Dark and Stormy.  The video was part of an assignment in our online how to shoot food videos group that Lenny is leading, and we had to shoot this video with one light, and […]

Wine Spritzer

Wine Spritzer

I have steered clear of wine spritzer type cocktails since my early days of drinking.  Back then it was often a overly sweet and fruity drink that left a headache afterwards.  Then I discovered the fine art of adding ice to my glass of Rose during a trip to the south of France.  Being from […]

Sparkling Apple Cider

Sparkling Apple Cider

We almost had November slide by without a give away of thanks.  Completely my (Denise) fault as I have been playing major catch-up on everything else besides the gratitude give aways.  Sorry about that!  Not only do we have a little something to share with one lucky reader;  but, there is a recipe as well. […]

Gin and Tonic

Making Ice Cubes and a Summer Classic Gin and Tonic

We have been talking about how to stock your home bar, on and off, for the past couple months.  With summer around the corner and icy beverages on all of our minds, it only seemed appropriate to talk ice. We have been in Las Vegas a couple times this month for work.  When we get […]

Whiskey Sour

Homemade Sour Mix and a Whiskey Sour

Not sure about you but we are really happy that it is Friday;  it has been a week.  To kick off the weekend we are going to talk about Bar Basics, items that your home bar should have.  The first item we want to talk about is the Sour Mix. Sour mix is basically equal […]
