Homemade Chorizo

Homemade Chorizo - Making your own chorizo sausage at home is so easy and so much healthier than the commercially prepared kind!

One of my kids' favorite breakfast dishes has got to be chorizo and eggs. We got hooked on it in San Diego. My kids practically grew up on the stuff! Between spending the night at friends' houses that had fabulous Abuelas that would make everyone breakfast on Sunday morning, and our numerous trips to my favorite taco shop, it was on the breakfast menu at least once a week. Actually it didn't have to be breakfast. It was eaten for breakfast, lunch, and dinner in our household!

Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner and you all know that is a big deal in with me. Growing up in Southern California, it was a holiday that we ALL celebrated. Good food, and lots of it, was always consumed no matter where I was. So lately my house has been full of Mexican inspired dishes. I love coming up with new recipes for the blog PLUS we all know my obsession love of Mexican food is a year round thing. But that enthusiasm is not exactly shared with the man in my life, so Cinco de Mayo gives me the licence to go crazy with it, no matter what he thinks (that would be a big nanny nanny boo boo right in his face hehe).

Oh my dear salsa how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. 

I love you with chips
I love you in dips
I love you with rice
On tacos you're nice
Atop my tostada you're kean
Especially with cheese and sour cream
I stir you into beans
Whenever I have the means
I put you on beef, fishchicken, and pork
Pretty much I will put you on anything on a fork.
You are oh so tasty in a salad
Uh oh
I am hungry
So this is the end of my ballad.

With Cinco de Mayo on the horizon, I knew I needed to step up my game and get some Mexican food on the blog. Looking back, it seems like forever since I posted any which, for me, is crazy to think of. I used to make Mexican food 2 to 3 times a week and if you search the blog you will find a TON of Mexican inspired recipes. I just can't help it. I am addicted to it! I grew up in Southern California so Mexican food is all but in my blood. Butttttttttttt I now live with someone that isn't a huge fan, so I just don't make it as much as I used to. Ha, just wait for the next week or two, that will change! I may be gorging myself on leftovers, but I will be a happy happy girl!!

Thai Chicken French Bread Pizza

Thai Chicken French Bread Pizza - Sweet and spicy, this Thai Chicken pizza will tantalize your taste buds and make family movie night a gourmet affair.



I am a pizza lover from waaaaaaaaaaaaay back. I think, if it had been up to my Dad, pizza would have been my first food after formula. As soon as I was able to hold a slice, I was happily munching away on cheese pizza with a huge smile on my face and, as I got older, family night out most often ended up with us eating at the local Shakey's Pizza (anyone else remember Shakey's?). Ya, pizza is pretty much in my DNA!

Spicy Pickled Red Onions

Spicy Picked Red Onions - So simple, these bright, crisp, spicy little slices of heaven are perfect for burgers, sandwiches, tacos, and so much more!



Aahhhhh April 15th, tax day, one of my least favorite days of the year! I always put my taxes off until the last minute (this year was no different, I mailed them out yesterday) and stress out until they are done and in the mailbox. You would think that I would start ahead and maybe not stress out so much, but that is too logical so of course that is not what I do. Oh the things I put myself through that make me crazy!!

Sunday Supper is celebrating National Grilled Cheese Month today! Did you know that April is National Grilled Cheese Month? Yup, that’s right, an entire month devoted to melted, gooey, cheesy goodness. Oh be still my little foodie heart! I really think there is no other food that stirs as many memories for people as much as grilled cheese (mac and cheese runs a close second I think). So many people refer to grilled cheese as a comfort food, and that it takes them back to being a kid. I know I have SO many memories of grilled cheese and tomato soup dinners.

Ham Fried Rice #SundaySupper

Ham Fried Rice - Craving take out AND have leftover ham? Well you can kill two birds with one stone by making this delicious rice!

Ham Fried Rice from www.bobbiskozykitchen.com



I don't know about you, but I always have a ton of leftovers at the holidays. Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, it is always the same. I always make more than we really need. But I think that is the fun of cooking holiday meals. Having those leftovers to nibble on for the next few days. I mean who doesn't love a big ol' turkey sandwich with all the fixin's the day after Thanksgiving? Or my after Christmas fave is prime rib and egg burrito, ummm hellooooo yumminess!

Cheesy Salsa Chicken and Couscous Casserole #ChoppedAtHome

Cheesy Salsa Chicken and Couscous Casserole is the perfect weeknight meal made with boneless chicken tenders, salsa, couscous, and lots and lots of cheese! 



I watch a ton, and I mean a TON of food TV. It is on pretty much 24/7 at my house and one of my favorite shows is Chopped. I love trying to figure out what I would make with the ingredients in their baskets. I have to admit sometimes, oh who am I kidding a LOT of the time, I am stumped. I mean what do you do with pork tenderloin and black licorice? Yikes! I love them both, but not together!
