  • Best. Hummus. Ever. Period.

    We all have at least one "go-to" recipe don't we? I have a favorite soup, my simple salad dressing, and of course, an easy party drink. Well this hummus has become my go-to for entertaining, pot lucks, and anytime I'm looking to fix my Middle Eastern food craze. I've given this recipe out to many friends, and although I wasn't the creator, I do feel that this dip is a cornerstone of my cooking: full of flavor, relatively simple to make, and even better the following day!

Ham and Cheese Stuffed Pretzels with Curried Peach Sauce

It’s been one week.  One week since both children have been out of school, one week of summer.  It’s funny, I see other moms of school-aged kids and they ask quietly, with trepidation, “How’s summer so far?”  It’s not that my kids are raving lunatics (well most of the time) or the other mom has […]

Balsamic Glazed Broccoli

Back to basics.  Sometimes I get so caught up in creating new recipes or recreating ones we’ve experienced on our travels that I forget about the basics.  The ones that we eat on at least a semi-regular basis.  Ones I could cook with my eyes closed.  I’ve loved that this blog started out as a […]

Ramona - Fantastic way to serve up some good old broccoli. YUM! :)

Spicy Barbacoa Nachos with Quick Pickled Jalapeños | Mom de Cuisine - […] Back to basics again.  I’d like to say nothing fancy, just something we eat a lot.  But the truth is, this barbacoa is flippin’ delicious.  And my husband always tops his nachos with those jarred pickled jalapeños (gag) so I thought if I was going to make the effort to blog the barbacoa recipe, I might as well up the ante with homemade jalapeños (take that, Old El Paso). […]

Stovetop Kettle Corn

What’s the worst that could happen?  I mean a backyard full of 3-5 year olds, plus siblings for Christian’s fifth birthday.  Did I mention that Christian’s class (the invitees) was made up of mostly boys, boys who prefer to wrestle over play, boys who can swarm an area like cockroaches and get into everything.  Everything.

Tex-Mex Turkey Burgers with Black Bean-Pineapple Salsa and Chipotle Honey Mustard

Whew, that title is a mouthful but the recipe is actually fairly simple.  In fact, it is sort of a repeat on this blog.  One of my very early blog posts (almost three years ago!) was my awesome Tex-Mex turkey burgers.  I’ve changed up the recipe a bit, and the photography ALOT.  In fact, that […]
