Coconut Flanken Roast

Melt in your mouth Coconut Flanken Roast.  When you have meat that’s this amazing, you don’t need all the pomp and circumstance. I know it sounds weird but this literally smells like butter popcorn coming out of the oven. Buttery soft in your mouth, falling-off-the-bone-goodness, with a tiny hint of […]


Orzo with Crispy Salami

This probably falls under the category of top five favorite and most popular side dishes.  This. Is. Legit.  One of my most favorite sides.  EH. VER.  It freezes amazingly and it’s even better heated up the second day.  Like whaaaaat??? I totally promise.  Make it. And you’ll love me even […]


Twice Baked Cheesy Overstuffed Potatoes

This is a really warm, hearty, feel good recipe. The kind of comfort food that gets us through hard times. It may not be that glam looking (let’s be honest, it’s pretty bougie), but it hits the spot every time.  We grew up with this dish.  Heck, Mom even made […]

Even Papi Lichtenstein had TWO heaping bowls when he usually keeps things pretty light. Is that convincing enough for you? For those who don’t […]

Chicken Paprikash and Nokedli aka “Paprikás Csirke”

Chicken paprikash is a popular dish of Hungarian origin and one of the most famous dishes common to Hungarian tables. This recipe has me super nostalgic sitting in my best (friend) Babi Lichtenstein’s kitchen. Us Lichtenstein kids sat there many weeknights amid the truly indescribable wafting smells of this homely […]


One Pan Baked Spanish Chicken and Rice

This one pan winner dinner is like a comforting hug that you’ll keep coming back to. Firstly, because the deliciously flavored rice is cooked in the chicken juices and its just outrageously delicious and secondly who doesn’t love a dinner recipe that takes less than ten minutes to pull together? […]
