Broccoli Slaw

I am so spoiled, I can have this on demand whenever I want!
I'm going to wing this recipe, and Lou can update as necessary...

1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1-2 cups broccoli
1/2 cup carrots
1/2 cup red onions 
1/2 apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup beef base
1/4 white sugar (Or less, depends if you like more or less tart)

Annnnnd usually I ask him to like quadruple the recipe. It is SO good. 

Baby Back Ribs

Lou whipped this up for dinner last night for himself: 

I'm not going to pretend I know much about what he did to it... but here's what I do know:
1 can pinto beans - drain juice into sauce pan
1 can black beans - drain juice into the same sauce pan
Put beans in Dinosaur BBQ sauce (to taste)

Use bean juice and water to boil white rice, season with cilantro and paprika, cook and serve rice.

Season baby back pork ribs with salt and pepper, sear sides. 
Put beans, pork, and add more BBQ sauce to a dutch oven. Cook until pork is finished.

Try not to eat all in one sitting :-)

Ribs and Rice Cakes

There's really not much else to say,
Delicious ribs with a side of asparagus and rice cakes,
perfectly balanced.

Who wants to come over for dinner??


Jam Burgers!

If you've ever wanted to spice up your burger,
Jam Burger is the way to go.

Lou started by creating his own salsa,
including fresh tomatoes, onions, mangoes, and yellow cherries,
seasoned and cilantro-ed, of course. 

But the secret to a Jam Burger,
is to put the salsa not only on the burger as a garnish,
but to include it in the mixture!

Definitely try this at home :-)


The ONLY Way to have.... Fajitas!

Lou is ruining my tastebuds,

The other night we had fajitas.

Tortillas, according to Lou, are easy-p-z.
And homemade, they have this unique crispy freshness,
plus his little hints of spice,
that just make the fajita melt in your mouth.

Just see for yourself! 

The goods.

 And, again, no left overs.

You did it again, Lou :-)

The Only Way to Have Spaghetti

I don't think there is a better feeling than coming home to homemade pasta.

Don't believe me? 

Well unfortunately there were no leftovers, but I cannnn show you.

See what I mean?

 Make the dough with the dough ingredients.

Mush it real good.

 Roll it out

Use a pizza roller to cut slices of pasta.

 Flour it and set aside.

Our audience was captivated.

Pasta pre-boiling.

Carrots for the sauce.

Shittake mushrooms for the sauce.

Even the cats think it sounds yummy,

If cutting costs use crushed tomatoes. Real are yummy too.

Heat tomatoes, add mushrooms, carrots, spices, and bay leaves (fish those out later!), and heat.

Blend/puree the sauce, really helps get the flavors mixed!
Cut up some Lou-sized bites of chicken. Season with some Lou-stuff.

 Heat in a pan. And add to sauce.

Add to sauce and put it on boiled and drained pasta.

Lick bowl clean after.
Thanks for a fantastic and delicious meal, Lou :)

What's your favorite thing to add to your pasta-sauce? 
Have you ever made homemade pasta? Any tips?


Buffalo Stilton

Aka... the best Buffalo Chicken Pizza EVER.

There's no going back.

Poach some cut chicken into butter and Franks Red Hot Sauce.

Let simmer. Then strain chicken out of sauce and save sauce.

Cut up some awesome blue cheese. 

Make a bechamel sauce with said blue cheese.

Spread whole wheat pizza dough and add sauce, chicken, then bechamel.


Enjoy benefits of having the worlds best boyfriend :-)
