Three Cheese Baked Penne

Lately I haven’t made any freezer meals and I really do miss having some for those days when I just can’t cook. But I have an easy recipe that will feed us one the night I make it and gives us a freezer meal for the future. Three Cheese Baked Penne is like a bonus meal since I get two dinners and only cook once!

National Dogs in Politics Day

Every September 23rd America celebrates (or at least some of us do) National Dogs in Politics Day. This holiday reminds us that sometimes non-humans make the most honest, dependable, and hard-working public servants. Duke, pictured below, is serving his fourth term as mayor of Cormorant, Minnesota!

Chicken Milanesa

Chicken and citrus are great together! I love the way those flavors complement each other. Like Mr. Comfortable and me, they bring out the best in each other! The Panamanian way I make Chicken Milanesa, with its crispy coating and lime flavor is a terrific chicken dish. I incorporate lime juice right into the dish rather than simply serving it with lime slices.
Chicken Milanesa is popular all over the world!

Mama’s Guinness Irish Stew

In 1725 Arthur Guinness was born in County Kildare, Ireland. With £100 he inherited from his godfather Arthur started a small ale brewery in 1752. And in 1759 he moved to Dublin and signed a 9,000 year lease on a rather dilapidated and ill-equipped brewery. I’m so glad he did because 258 years later I can make Mama’s Guinness Irish Stew!

International Talk Like a Pirate Day

Because I love weird things I’ve decided to celebrate International Talk Like a Pirate Day this year. The “holiday” is celebrated every September 19th. Who knew? I’m sure Mr. C will call a shrink and the kids will start looking for a cheap old folks home for me but their confusion will be worth it!

Cowboy Skillet Meal

Recipes that are delicious, inexpensive, and don’t create a sink full of dishes are high up on my list of “must makes.” Cowboy Skillet Meal is one of those meals. Everything, including the noodles cooks in one skillet! And if you have leftovers it’s even better the second day!

Pan-seared Delmonico Steak

We don’t have steak very often. But when I get my hands on a thick steak I’m in red meat heaven! I don’t like to mask the flavor of the meat with a lot of seasoning. When Mr. C got a really thick Delmonico steak I just had to prepare it simply! I made Pan-seared Delmonico Steak and the result was wonderful!
