Like most of you, we lead busy lives. That’s why we love throwing dinner in the slow cooker before we head out the door in the morning, only to come back at night and everything is ready to eat. Although not all slow cooker recipes are created equal, this one is delish, and more than a tad spicy, especially if you use our homemade salsa verde to prepare it. To tame the heat, make sure you add in sour cream. Just in time for game day, we hope you enjoy it! Read more of this post

As a child, our family’s budget was incredibly tight. In order to stretch pantry items to feed a family of four, my mom used to whip up goulash from time to time. I remember it being comforting and delicious, and something that we always enjoyed eating. Although many years have passed since those days, having practical budget saving recipes in our culinary repertoire still makes sense. This recipe puts a Southwestern spin on my mom’s classic standby with yummy results. Read more of this post

One of my favorite ways to prepare poultry of late is to spatchcock it, which means we remove the bird’s backbone and roast it flattened out in a large cast iron skillet. It cuts the time from oven to table in half (at least), and cooks the bird much more thoroughly. It also delivers a juicy, succulent chicken instead of the tough, dry ones traditional roasting methods sometimes create. The addition of chardonnay and tomatoes adds a new dimension to the flavor profile that is simply yummy.  Read more of this post
