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, …

The fresh tomatoes and mushrooms simmer for hours with Italian sausage and fresh basil. There’s no canned sauce, paste or veggies in this dish. When you come home after a busy day, the warm …

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, …

Black-eyed Peas with Roasted Peppers

Folklore claims that black-eyed peas are one of the lucky foods you’re supposed to eat New Year’s Day. I didn’t learn about this tradition until I met my husband. His dad made sure that every New Years the family had a hearty helping of the mushy peas, along with cabbage and ham. The three are …

Breakfast with Leftovers

This is a really easy breakfast with leftovers. It’s similar to a crustless quiche, but it has airy texture like a soufflé. And it’s finished off with a cheesy cracker crumble for added texture. The beauty of this dish is that it can be made a limitless number of ways based on the leftovers you …

Bacon Corn Chowder

It’s Christmas Eve, and that means one very important thing in our holiday kitchen. It’s the day we eat mom’s corn chowder. For as long as I can remember, my mom has prepared this warm, satisfying soup every day before Christmas. It’s a recipe she received from a neighbor. She would start with browning a …
