Sweet & Spicy Asian Marinated Steak with Herb Butter

After soaking in a sweet and spicy Asian inspired marinade, prepare yourself for one of the best steaks ever. Served with a dollop of herb butter that melts to perfection on top.

Sweet & Spicy Asian Marinated Steak with Herb Butter

When it comes to romance, I am not the best at expressing myself with words. But put me in the kitchen and I’ll show you how I really feel. I’ll slave over something all day if I think it’ll win over your heart but at the same time, I have a few tricks up my sleeve that don’t keep me chained to the oven yet will still produce the same result. Take this steak for example, the night before you whip up the herb butter and throw the steaks¬†in the marinade. The next day all you gotta do is cook the steaks for 4 minutes total (or more if you prefer no-pink), top it with the herb butter and watch it melt. You will instantly¬†win¬†the hearts of every single taste bud and you didn’t have to sacrifice quality time by being in the kitchen. (Served with Voodoo Chef RED rub roasted green beans)

Easy Mini Cheese Balls

What’s better than a cheese ball? Miniature cheese balls! With this recipe you can adjust for any flavor combination and can be served as a snack or to feed a crowd.

Easy Mini Cheese Balls 3

Everyone loves a good cheese ball. I mean, what is there not to love about them? Cheesy, creamy, flavorful and rolled in some of the best things like herbs, nuts, and even bacon. Is it possible to improve upon that design? Why yes, you just have to miniatureize them and they instantly become the easiest freaking cheese balls you ever did make. All you have do it take those individually wrapped Laughing Cow cheese wedges, roll each one into a ball, and then roll in whatever coating you desire. Done! Just refrigerate until ready to serve.

The¬†great thing about using The Laughing Cow spreadable cheeses was the diversity of flavors available. I used swiss with garlic & herb and rolled it in a mixture of parsley and basil. But I didn’t stop there! The second flavor I made was with queso fresco & chipotle rolled in a mixture of cilantro and chili pepper. Some another great combinations could be white cheddar or spicy pepperjack rolled in bacon, mozzarella sundried tomato basil rolled in basil and parmesan, and¬†swiss french onion rolled in crushed pretzels and green onion. The best part? You can make just enough for a snack or for an entire party! For a smaller serving use about 1 tsp of coating per wedge of cheese.

Crunchy Thai Chicken Salad with Peanut Dressing 1

With my new kitchen still not fully situated, baking¬†has been thwarted. But that may be a good thing until I can get back into my regular gym routine. Yes I am still slacking on the decision as to which gym to join. I think it is partly due to knowing that gyms always get crazy busy in January and if I wait a little longer maybe it’ll die down.¬†In the mean time, I’ve started jumping on the healthier eating train (to balance out those Taco Bell trips). To satisfy the sudden onset of a¬†Thai craving I made this salad full of chicken, carrots, red bell pepper, peanuts, and chow mein noodles. Then top it off with a sweet yet spicy peanut dressing.

Roasted Sweet Potato Tacos with Black Beans and Kale Ceviche

A little bit a prep goes a long way with these veggie tacos featuring roasted sweet potatoes, black beans, and a kale ceviche. 

Roasted Sweet Potato Tacos with Black Beans and Kale Ceviche 1

If you are even remotely familiar with dinnerware then you’ve heard of Corelle. Many of you probably own a set. I know my parents use Corelle dinnerware every day and they even bought me my first 4-piece set when I first went off to college (was that really over 10 years ago?) and they are still in perfect condition. But being a food blogger one set of plates is never enough so I jumped at the opportunity to get my hands on the new Corelle¬ģ Boutique‚ĄĘ Brushed pattern which is sold exclusively at select Kohl‚Äôs stores. The modern pattern comes in 9¬†colors which are¬†easy to mix-and-match, of which I am a huge fan.¬†And being Corelle that means they come with certain features:

  • Break and chip resistant for carefree durability
  • Made in the USA
  • Dishwasher safe for long lasting patterns
  • Microwave and oven safe for versatility
  • Stackability for easy storage and cupboard space efficiencies
  • Patterns won‚Äôt wash, wear or scratch off
  • 3 year limited warranty

The first meal I graced upon the surface of these pieces was tacos. But not any old tacos, roasted sweet potato, black beans, and kale ceviche taocs! Due to its lengthy nature, upon first glance of the ingredient list you may be frightened off from attempting this recipe¬†yourself but I promise it’s easier than it looks. For starters the ceviche requires no cooking, just toss and let marinade overnight. The following day, toss the sweet potatoes in seasoning and then roast in the oven for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, cook the onions and beans which will be ready in time to assemble it all together. See wasn’t that easy? Lots of chopping for prep but minimal effort from then on and a happy belly as the reward.

Grilled Polenta with Spicy Steak

Grilled polenta disks and spicy flank steak combines for a satisfying meal. Served with fresh avocado slices, queso fresco, salsa, cilantro and a squeeze of lime.

Grilled Plenta with Spicy Steak

Don’t close down your grill yet! Just because summer is coming to an end doesn’t mean that grill season is as well. In fact for many people fall is the prime¬†time to grill because it’s football season. Grilling in the fall makes more sense anyway because who wants to stand over a hot grill when it’s 90 degrees outside? Good thing grilling doesn’t usually take very long. This recipe is a quick griller and even though it may not look like a lot on your plate it is surprisingly filling. The grilled polenta disks do the trick.

Then after you’ve satisfied your food cravings, check out some brain food. In case you haven’t been stalking PubMed like I have, my second paper hit the interwebs! Hopefully it’ll advance into¬†print quicker than my first paper but the important thing is that I can change the status of that paper on my resume, at last! Having things published makes me¬†feel like a smarty pants.

Pass the Cookbook Club: Michael Symon’s Spicy 50/50 Burger

Mix up your burgers with these Spicy 50/50 Burgers made with ground beef and chorizo. Don’t forget the cheese, cilantro and a toasted bun.

PtCBC 2014

This month for Pass the Cookbook Club, Julie (White Lights on Wednesday) picked recipes from Chef¬†Michael Symon’s 5 in 5: 5 Fresh Ingredients + 5 Minutes = 120 Fantastic Dinners. This cookbook is a collection of recipes that can be made from 5 fresh ingredients (along with a few kitchen & pantry staples) in 5 minutes. The italicized items in each recipe are the ‚Äú5‚ÄĚ fresh ingredients.

Spicy 50-50 Burger

The moment¬†I saw the recipe for the burgers I knew I had to make them. Not only are they perfect for Memorial Day, they are also made with half beef and half chorizo. With all the flavors already involved in the combination of those two meats there was no need to add anything else to the mixture except for a little salt and pepper. Topped off with a slice of cheese, fresh cilantro, and a toasted bun there’s not much left to be desired – except maybe some avocado slices which I went ahead and put on there as well. Served¬†with Healthier Elote (Mexican street-style corn) and Baked Sweet Potato Fries seasoned with chili powder and brown sugar.

The only other thing I changed to the recipe was the step that said to flatten the burgers once they were on the hot pan. I refused to follow this step as I prefer thicker burgers. Also, I have to point out that while yes it only takes 5 minutes to cook these burgers, it does take slightly longer than that to prepare from start to finish. But still quick and easy!
