Skirt Steak with Kale Chimichurri Sauce

Seasoned skirt streak topped with a kale chimichurri sauce. So much flavor and easy to make!

Skirt Steak with Kale Chimichurri Sauce 2x

Told you I’ve been making a lot of recipes with kale and arugula lately. I had been wanting to make chimichurri for a very long time so when I found a recipe using kale I finally sprung into action. This steak was everything I hoped it would be. Perfectly seasoned, pick in the middle and topped with an amazingly flavorful chimichurri. There was actually plenty of chimichurri leftover and have enjoyed spreading it on sandwiches and burgers. I want to try it in an omlet next. It’s my new favorite condiment!

Guest Post: Corn Salsa by Little Bitty Bakes

Twas the night before my defense, when all through the house, a creature was stirring, and it was me freaking out! Yes, tomorrow I defend 6.5 years of graduate work in order to acquire my PhD. You could say that I am slightly anxious over the whole thing. I was calm for a couple days last week once I finished writing and finalized my presentation slides, but now it’s really about to happen. Thank goodness Liz agreed to guest post for me today (who by the way is yet another food blogger in graduate school).

Liz of Little Bitty Bakes likes to use Greek yogurt in many unique ways and has more than once inspired me in my own Greek yogurt adventures. Heck, she’s used it in her bacon wrapped dates with mustard-greek yogurt filling, and even made CHOreos. Speaking of Oreos, can we please discuss her Oreo cake batter bars? I could easily eat the entire pan without a drop of guilt today. She also likes to play with granola and granola bar recipes. Most recently I’ve had my eyes on the salted caramel pretzel granola. IDK why but I have had a huge craving for pretzels.

Hello Spiffy Cookie readers!  I’m Liz from Little Bitty Bakes filling in for Erin for the day.  I’ve been a reader of Erin’s blog for quite awhile now — I think we’ve done our fair share of bonding over cookies and all-things-upstate NY over the years. :)  As a doctoral student myself, I don’t envy Erin right now as she preparers to defend her dissertation.  Erin, you’ll guest post for me when I’m suffering dissertation woes, right? 😉

Anyway, on to this post!  Even though most recipes on my blog are baking/sweets related, I actually enjoy making savory dishes just as much, so I thought I’d share this corn salsa recipe with you today!

Let’s talk salsa.  My sister recently asked me to brainstorm a corn salsa recipe for her, and my mind immediately went to Chipotle-land.  Is there anyone out there who doesn’t love Chipotle’s corn salsa?!  I don’t even know how that’d be possible.  Anyway, with corn salsa on the brain, I set out to make one that was even better than Chipotle’s.  Big ambitions, I know.

Besides chopping up the assorted ingredients, this salsa recipe is so easy to assemble.  I made a big batch and brought most of it to a tailgate, but saved myself a little bit for a single serving snack of chips and salsa.  How’s that for a single serving Sunday, huh Erin? 😉

In addition to the corn, the salsa is loaded with lots of fresh, flavorful ingredients… poblano pepper, red onion, cilantro, lime, and the secret ingredient: roasted red peppers!  The red peppers lend a smoky flavor to the salsa, which I believe is what puts this corn salsa on top of Chipotle’s. :)

Try out the recipe and let me know how you like it!  Thanks again for the opportunity to guest post, Erin!

Ground Turkey Sloppy Joes with Hoisin and Cilantro

I don’t go out to eat often, but when I do I rarely leave with leftovers. And what I mean by this is that I either inhale it all or I get a box to go and somehow end up leaving it on the table, much to my dismay later on. This problem of mine is particularly annoying when I purposely ordered enough food to cover two meals. I have to make a conscious effort to hold onto my to-go box when getting ready to leave or else it’ll never make it. One time I remembered right as I was walking out the restaurant door, but it was already too late. The waiting staff was just too fast and efficient for me :-(.

The best thing about cooking and eating at home? All my leftovers stay with me. In fact, most of the time when I make recipes that serve multiple people, I portion out the serving I’m going to eat and then divide the rest amongst lunch-box-sized containers for lunch that week. This makes me particularly happy when I get to enjoy awesome things such as these sloppy joes more than once.

Sloppy Joes don’t have to come from a can. And they also don’t always have to be made with the same traditional seasonings either. When I saw this recipe using hoisin sauce I had to make it. And I am glad I did because it totally beats any canned sloppy joe sauce any day.

Rainbow Guacamole Deviled Eggs

Happy belated Easter! I hope you all had a splendid weekend. On Sunday, I went to a friend’s for Easter brunch with other friends who were spending the holiday away from family and I brought along these fun deviled eggs. Not only are they festively colored, but they are stuffed with guacamole instead of traditional deviled eggs yolks.

In other news, my March Madness bracket completely imploded over the weekend. I’m not really a basketball fan aside from always cheering for any Ohio State sport’s team, but I always enjoy making a bracket and seeing how it all plays out. Not a single of my final four made it and of course the most disappointing one was Ohio State. Figures that the one Big Ten team that made it was Michigan. Boo. I guess I should cheer for Syracuse now since it’s close to Rochester where I grew up.
