Oh, how I love this easy and elegant recipe for bistro salad! If you can fry an egg (and click here for my perfect fried eggs recipe!) then you can make this lovely, swanky number that is light and delicious and colorful and ready in two shakes. This is one of those dinners (and sometimes lunches) that I always have on call for those days when I have run out of clever ideas for what to make for dinner…or those nights when whatever clever idea I DID have on the menu happens to land on One Of Those Days. Ready for some bistro salad deliciousness? Let’s make it!
If you read my post from a few days ago, you have caught on that I am currently obsessed with things that can be eaten out of bowls, including this scrumptious, warm and wonderful ham and swiss pot pie. Chunks of ham, thinly sliced potatoes and shredded Swiss cheese bake up in a bath of cream and eggs and mustard, and the pot pie crust is not pastry but rather a crispy, cheesy topping of tender potatoes and golden melty cheese. It’s a pot pie version of your favorite ham and cheese sandwich. It’s comfort food extraordinaire. Let’s make it!
Before I start my love-fest about this recipe for migas, let me state for the record that this is an Irish girl trying her hand at this Tex-Mex dish….and now that I have my disclaimer out of the way, let me also say that this is a quick and out of your mind delicious conglomeration of scrambled eggs with pieces of crispy fried tortillas, sweet onion, tomatoes and cheese, topped with a squeeze of lime juice.
I KNOW. After a couple of weeks of peppermint and chocolate everything accompanied by gallons of wine and eggnog, I not only want migas, I need ’em. And happily for me and for you, we can have ’em in 15 minutes from start to finish. Let’s make them!
This recipe for an all kinds of festive Christmas Tree Fruit and Cheese Platter is so easy that it almost doesn’t seem fair to use the word recipe when describing it…it’s more like a ridiculously easy, completely merry take on the usual cheese and fruit board. Some cubes of your favorite cheese, some cheery red and green grapes, a little sprig of thyme here and there to give it that extra Christmas tree look and your favorite Christmas platter and you are in holiday business! Let’s make it!
So, pretend with me for a moment that your favorite mac and cheese recipe and your favorite taco recipe had a baby made out of creamy cheddar cheese and macaroni goodness mixed with spicy ground beef and topped with crumbled up crunchy tortilla chips. Got that in your mind? Welcome to my chili macaroni and cheese, which is all of that deliciousness baked up in your favorite casserole dish and just in time for those chilly winter nights when the ravenous kids are around. Let’s make it!
These addictive little cheeseburger muffins are the latest in a long line of my favorite, favorite foods that I have muffin-ized. Because as far as I am concerned, anything and everything delicious is even MORE delicious if you figure out a way to cook it up in a muffin tin. And it stands to reason that if I can muffin lasagna, macaroni and cheese and the delectable middle of cinnamon rolls, could cheeseburgers be far behind?
No. No they couldn’t be. Let’s make them!
