Feijoada

Our friend Tuany‘s mom, Rita, came to visit from Brazil and while she was here, we got to cook聽an old-fashioned feijoada together! Feijoada is a famous beans-and-meat dish聽of Portuguese origin. It’s similar to several old-world bean stews like French cassoulet and Spanish fabada. In Brazil, it’s usually made with black beans along with lots of…

Beef Satay Meatballs

For when you want something a little sweet and a little spicy, but all you have is some boring ol’ ground beef, make these beef satay meatballs! I was slightly inspired by the satay-marinated beef tri-tip I saw Food Wishes post a month or so ago (listen to my podcast interview with Chef John here!)…

Arroz con Pollo

arroz con pollo

Everybody in north America has had some kinda arroz con pollo at some point in life, I’m betting. Arroz con pollo; chicken with rice. It’s a one-pot meal (as long as you don’t eat聽too many vegetables 馃槈 ) and it’s beautiful to look at. It kind of reminds me of paella and I’m shocked that…

Baked Buffalo Chicken Wraps

Chris had a hankerin’ for Buffalo Wings, but really more for Buffalo wing sauce since neither of us is a huge fan of nibbling on lil ol’ chicken wings. 聽A drumstick, sure, I can handle that. But teeny tiny chicken wang bones are so tedious. Know what’s not tedious? Boneless, crispy chicken tenders in Buffalo…

Spicy Chicken, Quinoa, and Broccoli Casserole

Y’all, we really all oughtta聽be eating more casseroles. (Whoa, when I first read that back, my brain read “eating more assholes” which is not something we necessarily need to be doing.) I feel like casseroles have聽gone out of favor since I was a kid. Probably because they’re all heavily dependent on noodles, or bread, or…

California Chicken Salad

What makes this chicken salad a California chicken salad??? Let’s talk about it. I’m leaning hard on avocado for the聽answer. Avocado is in, or on,聽everything here. But also … poppy seed dressing! Because the poppy is California’s state flower!聽See?!? Pretty proud of myself for that one. The poppy seed dressing I used here聽is made with…

Chunky Beef Tacos

These chunky beef tacos might look familiar — they’re a ripoff of Chile Colorado, but that’s usually made with pork. These are a simple and a great way to use beef stew meat (besides in beef stew, though if you want that, I have two: vegetable beef stew and beer beef stew). Chile colorado is…

Ground Beef Curry

This ground beef curry is quick and easy — literally ready in under 20 minutes. If you’ve never thought of using ground beef in a curry, well, I hadn’t either. But necessity is the mother of invention and all I had thawed out was ground beef (bison, actually) and I was doing an experiment with…
