Williams Steak Seasoning {DIY with Fresh Spices}

I admit it. I love A1 sauce… And for some reason, Rob always gives me a hard time about using steak sauce. I guess the steak seasoning in this house needs to get a little more creative than salt + pepper. Enter me and my pantry full of spices. I do not have a spice rack. I have a spice section. It includes 2 shelves, 16 magnetic jars affixed to the back of my pantry door on silver trays, and a wooden board full of decorative jars containing this and that. With that much kitchen real estate dedicated to my herbs and...

Williams House Seasoning {All-Purpose Seasoned Salt}

Everyone needs a go-to house seasoning blend—something you can put on anything and everything to add some quick flavor and a special touch to basic meals. Growing up, I remember my dad reaching for Lawry’s Seasoned Salt a lot. I also remember it turning canned green beans into a much more flavorful vegetable I actually liked to eat. Lawry’s adds a simplistic flavor, but some flavor is better than none! I’ve used it many times as a base, adding other seasonings on top of it to spruce it up. Even though the ingredient list is pretty ambiguous (i.e. “salt, spices.” Yeah,...

Mixed Greens With Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette

Gardening season is here. That means I’m about to have more lettuce than I know how to use up. I’ve been building my collection of recipes using spring greens all winter long. And this recipe for Mixed Greens with Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette is one of the more delicious ways I’ve come up with to use the bounty of fresh spring greens coming my way.

They’re so easy, and I love having the salad ingredients on hand for quick...

Arugula with Cranberry Vinaigrette is a green salad with a great mix of peppery and tart flavors, and makes a wonderful healthy side for winter meals. Also a great way to use up leftover cranberry sauce from holiday gatherings. 0

Arugula with Cranberry Vinaigrette

Salads have become an expression of creativity on my dinner table. I love working with all kinds of greens, but arugula was one that wasn’t getting much of the spotlight in my kitchen. A little bit about Arugula Arugula is known widely for its peppery taste. Although baby arugula is less peppery than the mature counterpart, it’s still pretty peppery. It really needs a good combination of complementary flavors to go with it. This peppery-tasting arugula reminds me of my recipe for Goat Cheese with Cracked Peppercorn Cranberry Relish that I published for Thanksgiving in 2014. It was the combo of...

Mixed Greens Salad with Apple, Goji & Bright Vinaigrette

It’s the middle of winter, I’m feeling motivated to eat well, and there currently aren’t many options for in-season produce. It’s a great time of year to put the power of dried bulk fruits to work, and I have been wanting to make a great salad with goji berries for quite some time now. Today’s the day. Did you know that goji berries are hailed as one of the most nutritionally-rich foods in the world? When I first heard about these berries almost 10 years ago, it was pretty difficult to get your hands on goji berries. But now I can...

Grandma’s Oil And Vinegar Salad Recipe

Food is one of those things that has the awesome power to send you back in time. It can evoke vivid memories just from a simple taste or smell. My grandma’s oil and vinegar salad does that for me. Whenever we eat this salad, I’m always instantly transported back to the Sunday family dinners we had when I was a child. Grandma did nearly all of the cooking, and she was good at it. I think that’s where I get some of my passion for cooking. I wish she were still here to cook for me, because I know I’d...

Dry Ranch Dressing Seasoning Mix

Make your own dry ranch dressing seasoning mix. Ranch dressing is delicious. I have always loved it.

I’m here to tell you that it’s possible to take back your favorite by making your own dry ranch dressing seasoning mix. I make my own dressings because I love the fresh taste of them. For me, it’s essential to have an authentic ranch dressing for salads, chicken wings, veggie platters, and the like. The...

Dash on a homemade seasoning blend

I admit it: I am a copycat. Maybe also a control freak. I like to replicate good food I find and make it from scratch using my own ingredients. One of those finds is a homemade seasoning blend that you might “Dash” onto many dishes like chicken, fish, or vegetables. When you stock your pantry with as many herbs and spices as I do, you have good reason to make a homemade seasoning blend or two. This homemade seasoning blend is super simple to make, and adds great flavor to dishes without extra sodium. Whether or not your dietary requirements...

Creating Your Own Compound Butters

Creating Your Own Compound Butters I love shopping at Whole Foods for their great, organic meats and veggies. I’ve been known to peruse the cheeses while there, as well. The last time I went I bought a couple of different compound butters purely out of convenience. I’m all about making things easy on myself while entertaining if I can. Plus, it was an impulse buy. I’m sure we’ve all been there, done that! I purchased a bleu cheese butter and a roasted garlic butter. Well, as I’m sure has happened to everyone else they sat in my fridge until they...
