Steak Sliders with Caramelized onions and Horseradish Spread

When I tell you these sliders were amazing, I mean they were AMAZING. There was so much flavor in each component of the dish. You could put anything on a Hawaiian roll and it would taste great.

Food Production 2 (Cont)

Here is another memory I have from my Food Production 2 class. It is taking place in October of 2018. I am making lamb for the first time ever. Grilled lamb at that.

Chicken and Black Bean Enchiladas With Avocado Sour Cream

I like to think of Enchiladas as baked burritos with a spicy red sauce on top, they are great in flavor and to me, a comfort food. I have had Enchiladas at several places in several states, and I can say for sure the way I make mine are far from traditional. The last placeContinue reading “Chicken and Black Bean Enchiladas With Avocado Sour Cream”

This to me is such a classic dish, yet it is soo good and can be altered for many different outcomes and flavor profiles.

Also since many do not know this aboutContinue reading “Pan Seared Salmon with Creamy Mashed Potatoes and Asparagus”
