The other night we ventured to the heart of Mexico and created a fabulous authentic mole sauce. However, we made too much. Now, if you have ever had a mole sauce before, you will likely agree that this is not a bad predicament to be in. So, the question becomes, “What do we do with …

In our most recent post, we discussed the basics of a roux and the history surrounding this seemingly mysterious sauce. A roux is nothing to be afraid of and is in fact a key component in a quality mac n cheese recipe. Without the roux, your mac n cheese will look more like a yellow …

So we are heading back to the United States, with a chicken and waffles recipe. This dish is a staple of the Southern United States and it is slowly, but surely making it’s way to the Northern states. Neither Zach nor I are from the South, so we didn’t grow up with a chicken and …

I’ve been wanting to make my rendition of Zucchini Boats for a while now, and tonight seemed like the perfect night to do so. Zach is still in Poland, and sometimes it’s hard to cook for just one person, but except for some chopping, this recipe is very easy to construct. This is also the …

This is such a fun take on your everyday potato salad. Zach and I feel that anything you can add dill too, elevates it to all new heights. We were in the grocery store the other day, and came across a pound of tricolor potatoes: blue, red, and golden yellow. These potatoes don’t come around …
