Tonight, we used up some more of our turkey leftovers to make turkey noodles, similar to the much beloved homemade chicken noodles, but on a much smaller scale :-) Turkey Noodles Serves 4 For the noodles: 1 egg 1 cup flour 1/8 tsp kosher salt 1/4 tsp black pepper For the rest: 2 tsp butter 8 ...

Chicken Piccata

Thursday, October 7th, 2010

My take on chicken piccata was dinner tonight. The pasta was a real treat as we're still trying to keep our refined carb intake down. Yum!

Product Review: Buitoni Wild Mushroom Agnolotti

Monday, August 16th, 2010

Tonight, lacking in motivation to cook at all, I boiled some water and had some Buitoni Wild Mushroom Agnolotti, found near the lunch meats and refrigerated biscuits and the like in the grocery store. I was pleasantly surprised with how tasty these were. Not as good as handmade ...

Chicken Piccata

Sunday, March 28th, 2010

I've posted this before, but the picture wasn't all that great, and as it's one of our stand-by easy meals, I figured it was worth re-posting :-) This is restaurant quality with very little fuss. I usually don't bother with the parsley, but it's a nice touch ...

Broccoli Beef Noodle Stir Fry

Thursday, February 18th, 2010

I got this great recipe from Jaden's Steamy Kitchen, and she found it in Noodles Every Day: Delicious Asian Recipes from Ramen to Rice Sticks. This was a bit more effort than your average stir fry with the added step of noodles, but the flavor was just great! ...

Beef Stroganoff

Saturday, February 13th, 2010

This is an easy and warming meal for a misty evening. Shaun's away this weekend, so I can use a little dairy in some of my cooking if I feel like it. This Russian dish is often made with thin strips of beef, but ground beef is what ...

Smoked Salmon Fra Diavolo

Thursday, January 21st, 2010

Another re-jiggering of my fra diavolo iterations. This one uses some tasty local salmon, from SeaBear. I chose the sockeye, as it has a more robust flavor to stand up in the spicy sauce. Even then it melded more with the sauce than the other versions I've ...

Beef and Zucchini Stuffed Shells

Wednesday, January 13th, 2010

This is a tasty Italian dish inspired by my mom's spaghetti sauce. Feel free to use your own marinara if you have some on hand. I'm just out and need to make another batch to freeze! The Barilla sauce is really pretty decent, though, and works well ...

Breakfast “Skabetti”

Monday, December 21st, 2009

This is Spaghetti Carbonara with the eggs deliberately cooked. We found we liked it better that way :-P It becomes much more reminiscent of typical breakfast flavors, and has thus been dubbed "breakfast skabetti" or "breakfast pesketti" in our house, playing off the way we ...

Greek Pasta Salad

Sunday, December 13th, 2009

This is a flavorful pasta salad that is great for potlucks. My office is having a lunch potluck for the holiday season, and my group drew bringing a side dish. This pasta salad immediately popped to mind. I'm also entering the chili cook-off, but that's a different ...
