Mahi Mahi Tacos with Broccoli Slaw and Chipotle Lime Crema

Prepare yourself for a lot or Mahi Mahi posts in the near future. My boyfriend went on a fishing trip last weekend, and caught a lot! So far, we've made it grilled, tempura fried, into cooked sushi rolls, and now tacos. These tacos were amazing. I'd pay good money for these in a restaurant. The… Continue reading Mahi Mahi Tacos with Broccoli Slaw and Chipotle Lime Crema

Sirloin Chili (Dutch Oven or Slow Cooker)

This chili was perfect for the snow day we had here a couple of weeks ago. I let it simmer on the stove for several hours, but it could also be done in a slow cooker.

Vegetarian Chili (vegan option, too)

This recipe follows the basic method of what I usually use to make my chicken tortilla soup and meat chilis. For the first time ever, my chili came out perfectly seasoned without any adjusting needed at all. The recipe itself is vegan - only the toppings take away the vegan-ness and make it vegetarian. Ingredients… Continue reading Vegetarian Chili (vegan option, too)

I had a bell pepper that needed to be used, shrimp in the freezer, and there was skirt steak on sale at Wegmans. The marinade was super easy, and the meat didn't need to marinate for very long.

Snow Day Chili-Stew

We had a blizzard last year, and I wanted to make something warm for us to eat while taking breaks from shoveling feet of snow. I'll be making this again for sure during the next mega-snow! I call it a chili-stew because it has some elements of a chili and other elements of a stew.… Continue reading Snow Day Chili-Stew
