Farm Fresh Eggs

During the winter months our local farmer’s market shuts down. Star Hollow Farm, however, still has CSA pickup and some basics like their farm fresh eggs.

Steak Tacos

In our neighborhood in DC there is a great taco truck that comes every weekend. The one downside is that it’s tough waiting a whole week in between taco fixes. The solution…make them at home! Of course they can not be as good as the magical tacos from the truck, but they’ll still be pretty […]

This is one of the many dishes I made from a big batch of poached chicken I cooked up earlier in the week. It is an original creation that I sort of threw together, and it turned out great. I wanted to pair the sandwich fixings with the flavor of the BBQ sauce. I added […]

Easy Cubano Sandwiches

Cubano sandwiches are great… but who has roast pork loin and Cuban bread lying around? You can still capture alot of what makes these sandwiches great if you just leave those ingredients out and use some more common ones. Pressing this sandwich is part of what makes it great. We have a panini press, but […]
