Cookout Leftovers for Lunch

Happy Memorial Day! Any leftovers from all the cookouts? This was leftover lamb chops that I took the meat off the bone and served it with Tzakiki, salad and a pita bread. The lamb chops were marinated with cumin, honey, and mint for 4 hours and then grilled. Here’s the link:


Skillet Roasted Chicken Thighs

I love the combination of the olives and pancetta, it serves well with polenta or pasta. I followed the recipe but found that the cooking time in the oven was off. My suggestion is  to place it on the lower rack and give it a least 25 minutes. It was courtesy of Fine Cooking. Here’s the link

Simple Perfect Enchiladas, My 100th Post

In honor of Cinco De Mayo, I made these enchiladas for dinner last night. I’ve been making them for the last few years. This time I skipped the step of frying the tortillas. I don’t think it’s necessary, the tortillas were easier to handle and the less grease the better. And just like lasagna I would let it rest for a awhile before serving … Read More Simple Perfect Enchiladas, My 100th Post
