French Onion Soup

Wednesday, August 11, 2010


This hearty soup can be a satisfying main course or a filling side dish. It is simple to make, just allow up to an hour to properly caramelize the onions. {Although I have to admit that I recently made it when I was short on time and I cooked the onions at a higher temp for only about 30 minutes and the soup still turned out great.}

Homemade Sausage and Egg Breakfast Sandwich

Friday, July 2, 2010


Most kids like Sausage and Egg McMuffins from McDonald's so this sausage and egg sandwich is an easy sell for breakfast. Making them at home is easier than you think and a whole lot better for you and your family. I like making the sausage using ground chicken or turkey.

Baked Turkey Chili Cheese Fries

Tuesday, June 29, 2010


This can be a hearty meal in it of itself or served as a side dish. It's a great way to feed your family veggies because the turkey chili is loaded with them. Plus, the potatoes are baked so this rendition of chili cheese fries offers a healthier alternative to the standard dish.

Seafood Enchiladas Verdes

Friday, June 25, 2010


Enchiladas are a great way to get your family to eat seafood. Shrimp, scallops, crab and cod are all good options for the filling because they are firm and have mild flavors.

Nacho “Sliders”

My family has come to the conclusion that the best nachos we've ever had are from...home. In our opinion, these nachos are better than restaurant quality because each chip is loaded with toppings so that nobody complains about the pile of plain chips underneath the top layer of nachos. The key is to use homemade guacamole and salsa, and to marinate the chicken. But even if you're short on time and choose to use store-bought versions of the ingredients, serving "sliders" is a great way to present your nachos.

There are many different flavors in this sandwich that mask the fact that it's made with healthy ingredients. It's colorful, visually appealing and easy to make, too.

A Cuban Sandwich, also known as a Mixto Sandwich, is a variation of a ham and cheese sandwich. There are many versions of this pressed sandwich but traditionally, it consists of ham, roasted pork, Swiss cheese, mustard and pickles.

Chicken Sausage Sandwich

Friday, May 14, 2010


This sandwich is easy to make and it's a great way to use leftover pizza ingredients. I love the fact that my family devours tomatoes (in the sauce) and spinach (in the homemade chicken sausage) without thinking twice.

Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with these festive enchiladas that look like the Mexican flag. Salsa verde, sour cream and red salsa (or red enchilada sauce) represent the three colors of the Mexican flag. They are quick and easy to make and each member of your family can eat their own enchilada flag.

In our quest to re-create the burrito mojado from Café Río, one of our favorite Mexican restaurants, we made these chicken burritos. Burrito mojado is Spanish for "wet burrito" which translates into a burrito drenched in enchilada sauce and melted cheese.
