Spicy Garbanzo-Chorizo Stew

“If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” — Unknown Don’t you just hate it when manufacturers change something in one of your favorite products, and not for the better? I used to buy a bean stew mix that was marvelously flavorful. It was one of those rare foods with easy preparation, easy clean-up, enough for…

Angry Shrimp

You’re definitely going to want to try this flavor explosion of a one-one-bowl dinner! Probably not on a weeknight after a long day of work, but maybe on game night so you can eat it in front of the TV. Maybe the next time Syracuse plays Pitt in men’s basketball. I always get angry during…

And there’s no better way than to give it such glorious company! I borrowed the marinade from Lemony Basil…

Turkey – Pea Alfredo with Linguine

  Why on earth do people complain about turkey leftovers? I’ve never understood this. I love leftovers! When I was growing up, we always had Thanksgiving dinner mid-day, then had turkey sandwiches in the evening. I think I enjoyed that meal almost as much as the main one. Now that I cook my own turkeys,…
