Meat and Fish

Growing up, I was raised in NJ, but most of our extended family was from the Pittsburgh area. Every 4th of July we would go back to visit, when the 4th of July festival was going on. This festival was a crafter’s dream, but it also had and still has delicious food. Meatball sandwiches and …

We’ve been frying up a lot of things in this household lately. I don’t care what anyone says, when it comes to wings and eggrolls, fried is the way to go. I’m sure most of you have had the combination of jalapeno and cream cheese is some way. It’s a great combination! The coolness of …

Here we go with burgers again! While my sister and dad were still in town, we HAD to make burgers especially with buffalo, since it’s so much easier for us to get out here in the West. This recipe did not disappoint and is one of our best burger recipes yet! We took your average …

However, if you are like me, you are already dreading the 4-day ordeal in the kitchen required to prepare Thanksgiving …

As of late, every where you look pumpkin is staring you in the face, which is ok for us, since we love everything pumpkin! We had a couple of pie pumpkins left over from the farmer’s market and were contemplating what to make with them that didn’t involve dessert or soup (since we’ve done that …

A while back we posted a wonderful recipe for Italian Potato Soup with Leeks and Pancetta. That potato and leek soup is quite brothy with chunks of potatoes, leeks, pancetta, mushrooms and so on. With leeks now coming into season we have noticed a large increase in the number of leek soups appearing at local …
