I was sitting my 9 yr. old nephew and took him with me to the produce store. He was so excited to see all the fresh produce (he's just like me) and wanted to create a pasta dish. This is what we came up with, and it was sooooo good.
I've been making fried chicken for years. And it was always good, but just good. Since I've discovered brining, move over KFC... you got nothing on my pollo frito! The skin is super crispy and the meat is so juicy, and if that isn't enough, it has that Latin flavor!
I've been experimenting with Chinese food lately and have been dying to make fried rice. Since I had Chicken and Broccoli I needed to use up, I figured I'd make it a one pot meal. Considering this was my first time making it, it turned out really good! ;-)
I love the flavor of Chipotles in adobo sauce. But on their own they are extremely spicy. Combining them with brown sugar, the citrus and the grilling tones down the heat a bit. Though It's still pretty spicy, I happen to love this marinade and this sandwich! ;-)
I'm Italian and I love pasta, I'm also Puerto Rican and I love cooking with bold flavors. This dish gives me the best of both worlds. It's so good it will make you wanna slap your mama! (It's a saying, don't slap your mama). But all jokes aside, trust me.... don't mean to be pushy but stop everything and make this NOW!
This is my version of Bistec Empanizado. Similar to the Cuban versoin of Bistec Empanizado, except I don't use an egg wash or the cracker crumb crust. Mine is seasoned to perfection and lightly breaded in flour. It's soooooo good!
An Italian-American Comfort Food. Pan seared seasoned chicken braised in a light tomato sauce with peppers, onions and herbs. To really bump up the flavor of the whole dish I served it over Angel Hair pasta Aglio Olio (garlic and oil). Delish!
I love this recipe because it's a change on the same old Italian spaghetti and meatballs (don't get me wrong I love Italian food). This recipe has bold Latin flavors. Meatballs simmered in a light tomato sauce served over white rice! Yum!
This recipe was adapted from skinnytaste.com (great site). The photo looked so appetizing, I had to make it. I tweaked it a bit, because I thought it would be a little bland. I didn't have leeks, so I used onion instead. But If you have leeks, I would suggest that you use them (I will next time). I have to say, it is one of the most delicious pasta dishes I have ever eaten. I really hope you try this!
These steaks are great on their own! But I like to dress mine up with some compound butter.
Note: Cooking time varies depending on the thickness of the steak, and how you like it cooked.
Helpful hint: Go to www.omahasteaks.com, on the bottom of the page click on resources and cooking charts, then steaks.
I had some chicken sausage defrosted, and was in the mood for spaghetti, so this is what I came up with. It turned out delicious! Please try this one!
Note: I made a lot since I was feeding over 4 people today. But you can cut the recipe in half if it's too much.
Tip: Since I cook with a lot of garlic, I buy the cloves already peeled. Makes life easier.
I love falafel! And where has couscous been all my life? This is my second attempt making falafel. The first time was a learning experience (not too good). But this one turned out really good. Next time I will try it with dried chick peas.
