These days, flank steak, which back in the day used to be so inexpensive can be over the top pricey! But every once in awhile there’s a great sale. This year I picked one up during the Super Bowl Sales and I knew just what I wanted to do with that lovely! I wanted to make Stuffed Flank Steak with Wine Sauce. I thought it would be a beautiful way to showcase that steak and perfect for a special occasion, maybe Valentine’s Day?
I love me some ravioli and I love me some tomato soup, but what I love even more is this Easy Tomato Ravioli Soup. If you’re in the market for a quick, easy tomato soup wrapped with Italian flavor I think you’ll love this little number.
I’m food crushing on my Mexican Shredded Chicken Stuffed Peppers! I’ve decided they’re like the perfect dish for this time of year when it’s not quite but almost fall weather and we’re alternating between hot, sunny days and cool crisp ones with a good amount of cold, drizzly wet and gloomy days sprinkled in here and there. Actually, I think there was one day where I started out with the heat on (mostly to dry the house out and take off that chill) and ended up turning on the air! It’s been that crazy.
When I first started writing about food, it was always my intention to highlight ingredients, how to shop, compare prices, choose them, store them as well as use them. And I did make a stab at that, years ago, under “Ingredients” in my menu. But more recently, I’ve been slowly adding and upgrading as I go. Lately, now that it’s in season, I’ve been thinking about and using kale a lot, so here is What to Know About Kale.
Over the years, I began giving hints on every post about the ingredients. This year, I’ve decided to move forward with my original vision, and cover an ingredient from some of my posts with a goal of eventually having my site be a better resource for you. Today, obs, I am choosing kale, inspired by my recent posting of Oven-Dried Kale.
I don’t despise a lot of foods, but Kale Chips rank right up there. I first heard of them on a Melissa D’Arabian show about 10 years ago. I was so psyched I ran right out and picked up kale and made them. The recipe worked beautifully and I tried to like them but I couldn’t stand them. There are recipes out there that add more seasonings and spices and maybe that helps them, but I’ve yet to give it a second go after an initial tasting. What I do love, though, is not wasting food! And that’s why this recipe for Oven-Dried Kale.
