Cajun Chicken Nuggets

These Cajun Chicken Nuggets have made an appeareance in a previous entry. Because they are delicious! Especially dipped in honey mustard. They are coated in a mixture of chili powder, cumin, thyme, red pepper flakes, onion soup mix, and breadcrumbs, and then sauteed in a skillet with a little EVOO.  Also roasted up some (superb!) sweet potatoes, and some … Continue reading

Spinach & Bacon Hash Brown Quiche

Spinach & Bacon Hash Brown Quiche

Double post day! Ok, so in my last post I said that the best eats of the weekend were falafel…. nope! J/k! Tonight for dinner I made “Spinach & Bacon Hash Brown Quiche,” from the Mar/Apr ’10 issues of Taste of Home: Simple & Delicious magazine. I’ve made quiche several times before, but this was … Continue reading

Garlic Lime Chicken Fajitas

Last night I was kind of at a loss as to what to make for dinner, since we didn’t have much in the house, but then I remembered that I had a package of garlic lime fajita spices in the pantry (pre-measured and pre-packaged separately, including: cumin, minced onion, minced garlic, coarse black pepper, oregano, … Continue reading

Nasi Goreng

Nothing too crazy tonight, just fried rice, or Nasi Goreng in Indonesian. There’s kind of a funny story behind this though. In 7th grade we had like an “international food day” or something like that, and this is what my junior high-self made to represent Indonesia. I used to cook this all the time for … Continue reading

Culinary Sampling of Las Vegas

I’ve been neglectful of this blog the last week because we were in Las Vegas! Just got back last night. I took tons of pics on vacation, but very few of all the delicious food I ate, it turns out. Our first night, we arrived late in the evening and went to the Grand Buffet … Continue reading
