Macheesmo Cooking With Confidence Thu, 26 Apr 2018 03:51:32 +0000 en-US hourly 1 4977906 Basic Cheese Souffle Wed, 25 Apr 2018 11:00:34 +0000 This is an updated post from the Macheesmo Archives! There’s a fair amount of mystery behind the souffle or Soufflé. It might be one of the more feared kitchen creations due to its ability to collapse and ruin your hard work. In fact, that’s why I’ve put off trying one for a very long time. […]

Easy Lemon Chicken Skillet Mon, 23 Apr 2018 11:00:04 +0000 It’s almost a given that if you are a busy parent (or just a busy person) you will fall into a weekday recipe rut. Sometimes I find myself cooking the same meal every week, almost on auto-pilot. So, I think having recipes like this Easy Lemon Chicken Skillet on hand to bring some bright flavors […]

Made with Real Cream! Wed, 18 Apr 2018 11:00:25 +0000 Welcome to the latest edition of Guess the Food, the online game show where I give you ingredients and you (typically very quickly) tell me what the food is! Yay! Let’s play! This food is a very common one, but I had never really noticed that the main marketing message on the front of the […]

Spring Greens Breakfast Bowl Mon, 16 Apr 2018 11:00:28 +0000 Breakfast bowls seem to land on two sides of the recipe spectrum these days. Either they are basically a bowl of fruit and yogurt that are colorful and definitely “pin-worthy” or they are a massive heap of potatoes, cheese, and meat. And don’t get me wrong, I like both of those ideas on certain days. […]

Sun-Dried Tomato Cheddar Scones Sat, 14 Apr 2018 11:00:30 +0000 There’s a small coffee shop a few blocks from our house in Denver and my son loves the scones from the shop. I think he likes them because they are basically a small cake, stuffed with blueberries and dusted with a ridiculous amount of powdered sugar. So when he came home and asked me what […]

Sonoran Hot Dogs Wed, 11 Apr 2018 16:06:03 +0000 I should start this post with a big fat disclosure: I’ve never been to Tucson (or Sonora, Mexico for that matter) and never had an official Sonoran hot dog there so it’s with great humility that I even attempt to recreate it. But, I do have a good friend who goes there frequently and we […]

Korean Shrimp Cocktail Mon, 09 Apr 2018 11:00:08 +0000 A good shrimp cocktail is one of my favorite appetizers. Clean and simple, it’s very hard to beat a good one. But, I rarely (okay – never) order them at restaurants mainly because they are ridiculously expensive for what they are. At home though, or on vacation, steaming some shrimp and serving them with a […]

Red Bliss Potato Salad Sat, 07 Apr 2018 11:00:41 +0000 This is an updated recipe from the Macheesmo Archives. When Betsy and I used to live in DC, I remember springtime, which is hands down the best time of the year in the district. Unfortunately, it usually only lasts a few weeks before we would move into what I like to call the Unbearable Swamp […]

Lemon Zinger Tuna Salad Wed, 04 Apr 2018 11:00:41 +0000 Tuna salad probably doesn’t break most people’s top 100 of exciting dishes. I get it. But, you probably think of tuna salad that I thought of before I started making it this way: Gloopy and fishy. It’s one reason why I’ve yet to publish a classic tuna salad recipe in my almost decade (TEN YEARS) […]

Quinoa Spring Rolls with Peanut Sauce Mon, 02 Apr 2018 11:00:33 +0000 I assume you spent this last Easter weekend like I did: sneaking my 3-year old’s candy when he wasn’t looking. That’s the responsible parent thing to do right? After all, I only see two options in this arrangement: I eat as much candy as possible on the sly. The candy disappears. He still gets some […]
