A while back I was on my way to a hair appointment. I knew I wouldn't be able to eat for several hours and my stomach was growling, so I swung thru a nearby Starbucks and got a breakfast item that they called a tomatillo steak and egg wrap. I was delicious! It was this item that inspired these enchiladas. La Tortilla Factory The base of this recipe are La Tortilla Factory non-GMO Gluten Free tortillas. They are made with cassava flour which makes them not only delicious but a perfect . . .
Have you ever eaten at Noodles and Company? We had one nearby when we lived in San Diego and loved eating there!! We dined there numerous times while we were dating. Our dish of choice was the penne rosa! It had the spicy tomato cream sauce, fresh tomatoes and spinach, mushrooms, and parmesan crusted chicken. To die for. We have been making our at home version ever since we moved away from San Diego and our local Noodles and Company. It has been a lazy Sunday afternoon staple for . . .
Caprese Salad is something I make all the time, I love it, my kids love it. We love it in just about any way shape and form. The salty fresh tomatoes, soft mozzarella, and chopped basil. These flavors equal perfection. We've recently been making melty caprese sammies. Now the sammies have evolved into this hot and melty caprese dip. How to make caprese dip The beautiful think about this dip (beside how killer good it is!) is that is only calls for a few ingredients. Each ingredient is so . . .
These thai lettuce wraps are my favorite, ALL TIME FAVORITE. They are inspired from a restaurant called Pei Wei. Every time we go I order these crunchy, sweet and spicy wraps. I crave them, anticipate them, love them. Then the last time I showed up to the restaurant they were gone. discontinued. disgraceful. The only thing left to do is to re-create the recipe for myself. This is the perfect lunch recipe for everyone who is starting their new year's diets and resolutions. Make a big batch . . .
Des and I been playing around with offering meal plans for a very long time - so we thought we would give you guys a little taste and see how you like it. The Dinner Time Curse I hate to admit this...but even as a food blogger...there are times I really struggle to get dinner on the table. I go thru times where I REALLY don't want to make dinner. Ordering a pizza or having my husband pick something up just sound a lot more appetizing that chopping, cooking, and cleaning it all up! But . . .
This is the best zuppa toscana copy cat recipe I've ever tried....and I have been making different variations of this copycat soup for years. This is my mom's recipe and I'm including both pressure cooker and slow cooker instructions so you can make it whatever way you desire!! I’m sure most of you have heard of this soup and most likely had it from Olive Garden. It’s always been my husbands favorite from there. He always shows me up and gets the soup and salad while I get a calorie filled . . .
2017 has been a GREAT year for OSD. We have had many exciting successes and high moments. But just like every business & life we have had our discouraging moments and failures too. We are grateful for all this year has taught us in both the highs and the lows. Most of all we are so grateful for all of our readers who support, encourage, interact, comment, come back, and of course MAKE OUR FOOD! We have some great new projects for 2018 (can't wait!!) but before we move on we want to share . . .
This last week I took this lentil bruschetta to a few parties- each time nervous that people would look at it and run away (let's face it these lentils are not the most beautiful creatures on Earth...) but instead I received the opposite reaction! Every one LOVED it. I received so many comments and even texts asking for the recipe afterwards. SO so happy this was a major hit. I have every confidence that when you make this you will love it and everyone you share it with will love it . . .
My dear friend Erin, years ago, invited me to a cookie exchange during the holidays. At this gathering we were served the most delicious dip - Jalapeño Popper Dip. It was warm, creamy, with a little kick, and served alongside tortilla chips and fritos. Since that day, Erin has served these delicious dips at many get togethers - fight nights, football games, and bbqs. Perfect For A Party So when I asked her what I should take to my recent bunco night she instantly suggested . . .
There are a number of holidays were we loooove to eat ham. Ham is delicious, with a salty flavor that pairs perfect with all the hundreds of holiday sides we love to serve. However, ham is also BIG and can take hours to bake...and then it often dries out. What if I told you you could cook a ham in about a half an hour? A nice big ham, not dried out, in a pressure cooker for 7 minutes! You'll never go back. Pressure cooker ham is the way to go! Let me show you how I do it in my instant . . .
