Macheesmo Cooking With Confidence Mon, 17 Sep 2018 17:17:02 +0000 en-US hourly 1 4977906 Mushroom Gnocchi Skillet Mon, 17 Sep 2018 11:00:30 +0000 When some people think of comfort food they may think of fried chicken, biscuits, or even something like shrimp and grits. But for me, creamed mushrooms can be the most comforting thing on any given night.

Cheesy Spinach Breakfast Muffins Sat, 15 Sep 2018 11:00:25 +0000 I’m such a big savory muffin fan. Sure, I’ll take a blueberry muffin if it’s all you got, but a good savory muffin will be my choice every time if I have a choice. To be honest, I thought the spinach in this recipe wouldn’t work. I thought it would end up being bitter in the muffins, […]

After School Protein Bars Wed, 12 Sep 2018 11:00:48 +0000 Here’s a phrase I never thought I’d hear my three-year old say: “Daddy, can I have a protein bar PLEEEEASSSE?” I just never really thought that I’d be offering protein bars to my kids. I certainly never had them as a kid. But the truth is that my kids need more protein. They tend to eat carbs […]

Easy Chicken Avgolemono Soup Mon, 10 Sep 2018 11:00:44 +0000 The first time I had chicken avgolemono soup was many years ago and was served by a small Greek woman in DC out of a cart. I didn’t quite understand what was happening with the soup and I could’ve went through a few dozen guesses at ingredients in the soup before I got to the […]

Lox Breakfast Bagel Sandwich Sat, 08 Sep 2018 11:00:06 +0000 If I had to choose one breakfast to eat for the rest of my days, it would probably be some sort of bagel with salmon like this Lox Breakfast Bagel Sandwich. Okay… or chicken and waffles. Or pancakes. But probably this lox situation. Don’t make me choose! This is the kind of sandwich that you […]

Cheesy Black Bean and Chicken Taco Skillet Wed, 05 Sep 2018 11:00:02 +0000 I really love recipes that can serve multiple purposes. This cheesy chicken taco skillet recipe can be what you need. It takes about 30 minutes to toss together and can either be a weeknight dinner (served with flour tortillas) or you can make it a hearty appetizer served with tortilla chips. We did sort of […]

Spicy Breakfast Fried Rice Sat, 25 Aug 2018 11:00:09 +0000 To be honest, one of my favorite parts of ordering Chinese takeout (something we do about 1-2 times per month), is save some of the steamed white rice for fried rice the next day. Sometimes I’ll make dinner out of it, if there’s enough. But, there’s almost always at least enough for me to make […]
