Pork Tamale Quesadilla


My quesadilla version for using Thanksgiving leftovers was much easier and tastier than the burrito version.

Grilled Tamale Burrito


In the spirit of using Thanksgiving leftovers, I concocted a recipe using the traditional Mexican-American Thanksgiving leftover.

Walnut Burger


Looks like a real burger! Good taste, but the recipe needs improvement.

Mushroom and Swiss soup


The modifications I made to the base soup (Garlicky Mushroom) transformed the bland, peppery soup into creamy, cheesy goodness.

I purchased jalapeno cheddar tortilla wraps intending to make more buffalo chicken wraps. Then I had a thought. How would buffalo chicken taste in a burrito?

Spicy Peanut Soup with Chicken and Noodles


One of the great things about being single again when you blog about food is that you don’t have another person’s tastes and opinion to keep in mind when you’re cooking. EX-BF never would have tried a dish like this.

Spicy Black Bean Soup


This is one of those go-to soups I make when I want something healthy and hearty.
