Our Best Bites | Tips, Tricks, and Tastes from Two Real-Life Kitchens Our Best Bites | Tips, Tricks, and Tastes from Two Real-Life Kitchens So if you’re familiar with Cafe Rio, a Utah-based fresh Mex chain that’s kind of starting to spread throughout the rest of the United States, you may have seen this chicken recipe floating around the Internet. I’ve done some poking and prodding and I’m not exactly sure WHERE it originated, but if you google Cafe Rio chicken, invariably a WHOLE BUNCH of blogs will pop up with a recipe for Crock Pot chicken and Italian salad dressing and a packet of Ranch. Which is cool, because it’s super delicious. But I’ve eaten a lot of Cafe Rio chicken in my days and I’m pretty sure this isn’t actually Cafe Rio chicken (I think it’s the cumin…shhhh.).

I was craving Indian food again lately and of course I needed gluten free naan to go with it. I found this easy recipe and used my favorite GF flour blend in it. For the naan, I also added in crushed garlic and curry powder for great flavor. Mommy? Im Hungry! Recipe Blog Mommy? Im Hungry! Recipe Blog
Mom's Cooking Club Have you ever made a frittata before? If not, it's really something you should try. It's a one skillet meal that can be eaten for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. You can't say that about alot of dishes. It's great for a Sunday breakfast or those busy weeknights. It is truly versatile....and delicious! Mom's Cooking Club
Meet Me in the Kitchen Meet Me in the Kitchen It feels repetitive to say that I have made everything there is to make with overripe bananas, but that is how I feel. It happened again and I realized I had never tried Ellie Krieger's version of banana bread. Her original recipe called for pecans, but a few people in my family don't love nuts, so I left them out. I decided to put a dollop of Dark Chocolate Dreams in the center of the muffins, just to make them more exciting. This was a great banana muffin and we enjoyed them very much! Banana Bread adapted from Ellie Krieger 3/4 cup all-purpose flour 1 cup whole-wheat pastry flour 1/4 cup granulated sugar 1/4 cup brown sugar 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/4 cup canola oil 1/4 cup nonfat yogurt 2 large eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 3 very ripe, large bananas, peeled and mashed (about 1 1/2 cups)
I don't know if anyone notices the schedule on the blog like I do, but I've had a couple of unplanned days off from both my blogs due to a bout with food poisoning that was definitely not fun. I got it from a restaurant, and my sister Pam and her baby grandson were also sick from our dinner together. So there hasn't been much cooking or blogging going on around here and I'm still not totally up to par, but it's nice to be back! I don't feel much like cooking yet, so I thought I'd share some of my Favorite Asparagus Recipes; some of these are things I make over and over every year, hope you enjoy!

Recipe for Easy Cheesy Zucchini Bake Recipe for Easy Cheesy Zucchini Bake When I noticed how many people are visiting my round-up of 20 Zucchini Recipes I knew it was time to share this fantastic new zucchini recipe called Easy Cheesy Zucchini Bake, recommended by my sister Pam. She found the recipe in Penzeys Back to School 2011 Catalog , where it was submitted by Karen Niessing. Pam changed the recipe a little and then I changed it a tiny bit more, and we were both impressed with how this very basic idea of tossing zucchini with a few fresh and dried herbs and cheese and then baking it can produce a dish that's so delicious.
A number of you have expressed interest in my favorite carrot cake recipe and have emailed me for the recipe in response to an offer I made to a commenter on my NY Cheesecake post. So, because I love sharing my favorite recipes, I'm going to post the recipe, but without any photos. To provide you all with photos of this wonderful cake, I'd have to make it, and then there would only be the two of us who would eat it as our family is scattered all over New England, and I work from home so I can't take it to work to share. Ultimately, the cake would only be eaten by me because Ole Sweetie-Pi can't eat nuts, and I wouldn't consider this cake without the nuts. Food for Hungry Soul Food for Hungry Soul

Cooking with Cristine Cooking with Cristine I made this dip on St. Patrick's Day and it went FAST!!! It was super yummy and very easy to make. I also made corned beef & cabbage for the first time (I forgot to take a picture, though). I wanted to make sure I documented both recipes so I can make them again next year! Guinness Cheddar Dip

Honey Dijon Spinach Salad is the start to a Progressive Easter Dinner being hosted by some of my best blogging friends and Maille® Mustard. This delicious dinner also brings with it an amazing giveaway by our friends at Maille® Mustard and Revol that includes some fantastic prizes from France! My contribution to this amazing dinner is this gorgeous Honey Dijon Spinach Salad. I love the combination of the raspberries, almonds, feta and spinach lightly coated with a mouthwatering Honey Mustard Vinaigrette made with the Maille® Honey Dijon Mustard. The sweet tang of the mustard paired awesomely with the salty feta and crunchy almonds! It was a match made in heaven! The Life & Loves of Grumpy's Honeybunch
Homemade Baby Food Recipes - Gourmet Baby Food Recipes by The Baby Chef Nowadays it's easy to find organic varieties of the same food you eat without all the harmful pesticides and chemicals. And you can easily convert any of your favorite recipes for organic by simply purchasing organic ingredients. My kids loved Stoneyfield's Organic Baby Yogurt (Yo Baby), but the consistency was a little runnier than they liked when they started eating chunkier textures. So, I tried experimenting with adding diced fruit pieces and other ingredients to beef up the texture a bit. The banana in this recipe adds a little freshness to the mix while the graham crackers gives them good chewing practice.

What A Dish! This is a delicious pulled pork using homemade BBQ sauce, made in the slow cooker. I love the BBQ sauce- I don't like any store-bought varieties very much, so haven't used it much at all lately. This homemade one is really good. You can top these pulled pork sandwich with coleslaw, which makes it even more delicious. Note: The recipe calls for lemon juice in the slaw, but I think I'll replace with apple cider or honey vinegar next time, to add a bit more sweetness. BBQ Pulled Pork

This Week for Dinner – Weekly Meal Plans, Dinner Ideas, Recipes and More! Time to share how we finished up our Spring Break last week! Once we were done having fun in Los Angeles, we hopped in the car and headed south 1 hour for a visit to Anaheim. I think in most people’s minds when you hear the word “Anaheim” you automatically think “Disneyland.” Disneyland is most certainly in Anaheim, but there is actually tons to do there in addition to visiting the Magical Kingdom. In the last few years the downtown area of Anaheim has been completely rebuilt, featuring local shops and restaurants. The Anaheim area has so much to offer (museums, sports, amusement parks, Medieval Times), you could easily spend a week staying in Anaheim and keeping incredibly busy!
