Monte Cristo Empanadas with Creamy Dijon Dipping Sauce {Ham, Turkey, and Swiss Empanadas}

Monte Cristo Empanadas with Creamy Dijon Dipping Sauce #Superbowlsnacks #Superbowl #DudeFoodWeek

Welcome to the week leading up to the Super Bowl. I’m not going to say that I couldn’t possibly care less about football because it is possible for me to care less. How? If the food angle of the Super Bowl disappeared into the ether one day, it is likely that I’d rather have a…

Ham and Swiss Fried Sandwich Pockets | Make Ahead Mondays

ham and swiss, deep fried sandwiches, grainy mustard, dijon mustard, horseradish

My second born son requested my husband’s specialty -fried chicken- for his birthday meal earlier this month. Of course, we obliged, and then found ourselves with a pot full of oil that still had a little life in it. I didn’t feel much like filtering it, so dug around in the refrigerator for something else…

Mediterranean Tuna and White Bean Salad

Fresh, light marinated white bean and tuna salad

January is a weird month for me. I start it strong carried on a wave of warm fuzzies from Christmas and New Years, and all of my boys’ birthdays, then exit the month sleepy and befuddled by the constant palette of whites and greys outside the window with the occasional glimpse of brown. My grandma…

Kielbasa and Pierogies Sheet Pan Meal

Kielbasa and Pierogie Sheet Pan Meall at www.foodiewithfamily.com

Can I see a show of hands for people who are absolutely mad for pierogies? I don’t see how there could be a much more perfect food: mashed potatoes and cheese (or maybe onions) wrapped up in a perfect pasta pocket. Seriously. Pierogies almost reduce my linguistic skills to guttural noises. Uhhhhnnnnnn. For years upon…

Honey-Drizzled Salami Pizza on www.foodiewithfamily.com

You know those things? Those things that if you change one thing, bad things will happen? Pizza is NOT one of those things. Not even close. Pizza is one of those gloriously erasable and re-writable canvases that can take on any personality at any time as long as the flavours you pile on top of…

Slow Cooker Barbecue Chicken Tacos

Slow Cooker Barbecue Chicken Tacos from www.foodiewithfamily.com

Every now and then I go and cook myself out. I’m sure you know what I mean… when you’ve gone and cooked so much that you’re only equal to ordering out or tossing something in the microwave. Tell me I’m not the only one who does this. It’s at moments like this when I make…

Heath Bar Crunch Chex Mix {Sweet & Salty}

Heath Bar Crunch Chex Mix at www.foodiewithfamily.com

Chex mix is something I only allow myself to make between the day after Thanksgiving and the end of January. I can’t handle myself around it and eat myself to the point where I feel like a turtle stuck on its back. A happy turtle, but a little less capable of moving under my own…

Have you ever stumbled on a recipe that made you holler because it was so good? And then you’re shocked to find out that it’s low in calories and fat? Yeah. No. Neither had I until just a couple of days ago. I was chatting with my friend and fellow food blogger, Mary Younkin of…
