Challenge Basket #1

ingredients

Shake and I love watching competition cooking shows. Shows like Knife Fight and Top Chef take us 3 hours to watch because we’re always pausing it and discussing the food and chefs and Padma’s outfits. I find the shows really inspiring-if two chefs can…

Salty’s Skirt Steak Tacos

steak tacos

Salty is not much of a cook, but when it comes to grilling, the man loves his craft. He also loves his steak, so nothing makes him more eager to help than a delectably marinated piece of beef. Shake throws in her margaritas, I…

Citrus Beef with Sesame Soba Noodles

A rich dressing of toasted sesame oil and soy sauce tossed with hearty buckwheat noodles is the perfect base for citrus marinated flatiron steak. Throw on a steamed veggie or five and you have dinner ready in less than 45 minutes. Ingredients Serves 6 …

Frito Pie Casserole

Frito Pie Casserole

Frito Pie is one of my cherished childhood foods from camp. Cheesy, crunchy, salty, and satisfying, Frito Pie is quick to make and fun to eat, and you can put as much or as little effort into it as you want. Homemade chili or…

Glazed Ham

Glazed Ham with rice and naan

Everybody loves “that” ham at the holidays, but waiting in line for 45 minutes and paying $80 annoys me, so this past holiday season I tried to make my own. It was so successful, I think we ended up going through four full-size hams…

Chicken Burrito

Chicken burrito

Full disclosure-I have so much leftover chicken in my fridge right now. We threw a party and ordered a few too many breasts, so I’ve been trying to use them like crazy. Along with the other leftovers, I decided to get creative and see…

Beef Stroganoff

Beef Stroganoff is classic Russian comfort food, but Americans seem to have happily adopted it into their repertoire as well. Although Stroganoff can be made out of cheaper cuts of meat, my butcher had a sale on tenderloin tails, so I decided to spoil…

Okonomiyaki

Okonomiyaki Okonomo-How you like it Yaki: Grill More like okonomi-yummy, this savory Japanese pancake is one of my absolute favorite dishes. I first tried it in high school when my Japanese teacher made it for our class-she is a chef now, and she made…

Oxtail Soup

Rich and hearty, oxtail soup is a long, slow process perfect for a melancholy winter day. Oxtail is exactly what it sounds like-the tail of a bull, cut into pieces 2-3 inches thick, with the bone in the middle. It is about as cheap…

Burrata Caprese

Caprese (ka-pray-say) is an elegant Italian salad comprised of fresh soft cheese, tomatoes, and basil. High quality mozzarella and balsamic vinegar are essential, but as long as you buy good ingredients this recipe is foolproof. Traditionally Caprese is made with fresh mozzarella, but I…

Sick Day Chicken Soup

Chicken noodle soup is supposedly the cure for everything, but what are you supposed to do when there is no one to make it for you? Everybody in my house got sick this week, so I was still in charge of comforting us with…

Ahi Poke

I love raw fish. Sashimi, sushi, crudo-however you want slice, wrap, or pile it, I will devour it with gusto. I realize that not everyone shares my enthusiasm for any fish, let alone raw, but if there was ever a recipe to change that…
