Orange Habanero Fish en Papillote with Orange Garlic Wild Rice

I’m a huge fan of fish en papillote (fish in paper). It’s the easiest, healthiest way I know to prepare the perfect piece of juicy, flaky fish. You wrap a filet in parchment paper with veggies and in just 15 minutes, dinner is ready. The presentation is pretty spectacular, too. Recently, Saucy Mama announced that …

Giardiniera Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms

These simple sausage stuffed mushrooms are packed with Italian flavors and cheeses. Giardiniera is an Italian combination of pickled vegetables often served on sub sandwiches. Like any good condiment, every sandwich shop has its own “perfect blend.” Some are heavy on the peppers and olives while others feature milder flavors like cauliflower, carrots and celery. …

Roasted Sweet Potato Salad

This Roasted Sweet Potato Salad with Honey Mustard Horseradish Sauce is a colorful, tangy twist on the traditional side item. I fell in love with sweet potato fries in Manhattan, Kansas – “The Little Apple.” Once a week after Taekwondo (btw I’m a black belt), my husband and I would eat at Willie’s, and we …

Peppadew Pepper Pretzel Bites

Peppadew Pepper Pretzel Bites are soft-baked pretzels at home with a fun, Zestuous twist. I love walking into a mall or airport and smelling the fresh baked pretzels. They’re smothered (maybe dipped) in butter and covered in salt. As you bite into the warm pretzel, you break through a slight crust before reaching the tender, …

Bundt Pan Jalapeno Poppers

My Bundt pan wasn’t full of cake this week. Instead, I filled it with Bacon Cheesy Jalapeno Poppers. The bundt pan poppers idea came to me as I was experimenting with traditional poppers. I was looking for an easy way to stand jalapeno peppers up so the melted cheese didn’t ooze out. I opened the …

Philly Cheesesteak Dip

Warning! I cannot be held responsible if you gain weight after reading this post for Philly Cheesesteak Dip. It’s not that this dip has more calories that the average Game Day party food, it’s just that it’s sooooo good, it will be hard to stop eating it. The dip is inspired by the Philly Cheesesteak. …

Gochujang Potstickers

My food trend pick for 2014 is Gochujang. It’s another way to add sweet heat to dishes without burning your tastebuds. Gochujang is a fermented Korean red chile paste that has a little bit smokier flavor than sriracha. It has a thick consistency like tomato paste and is made from red chiles, glutinous rice, soybeans, …
