Fabulous Fajitas
October 11, 2018

The marinade is the secret to fabulously tender, juicy meat that can stand on its own.  Grilling gives it a smoky flavor but I cook these in a cast iron skillet.   It helps caramelize the vegetables and the meat.  If you are grilling I would use a basket to put the meat in and then use a skillet to cook the vegetables.   You can also use beef, bison or even venison as the protein.  When cooking chicken I allow for about 20% shrinkage.  Hence, the recipe calls for one and quarter pound to allow for one full pound of cooked protein.

Spicy Chicken Lettuce Wraps
April 30, 2018

Feeling spicy? Try these chicken lettuce wraps. This recipe calls for one tablespoon chili garlic sauce but if you like a lot of heat add another tablespoon or two or even three if you are a real hot and spicy lover. I would recommend starting off with one and then add more chili sauce until you have reached your desired heat index. I use living lettuce rather than romaine because it seems to last longer if you are using for meal preparation and not dinner or lunch. Also, the sweet & sour sauce can be found at any specialty food market. It is gluten free, fat free and low in sodium. It would replace gluten-free Hoisin sauce.

Quick Versatile Bolognese Sauce With Zoodles
January 9, 2018

Bolognese means “In The Style of Bologna,” the Italian city in northern Italy known for cuisines that makes liberal use of meats. This is a rich meat sauce that is versatile because you can use ground beef, bison, turkey or ground chicken and it will still be delicious. Also, if you need more carbohydrates that day serve it over GF pasta or rice rather than zucchini noodles (zoodles). Omit red pepper flakes if you are adverse to heat from spice. You can add little fresh basil which is typically not part of bolognese but it adds a little freshness and if you love basil as I do- Just go for it!
