What?  She made a salad?  Oh yes, she sure did! Despite what some may think, I do enjoy a good salad.  That said, I am not a weeds and lemon juice kind of gal (no offense to those of you who are).  If you are going to feed me salad there are a few requirements […]

Happy Independence Day!! If you live in the States it is time for fireworks, parades, and celebrating the birth of our nation.  I am planning to spend a great deal of this long weekend in my kitchen because what celebration is complete with out some really good food? I am always looking for inspiration, and […]

Beef Short Rib Tamales

I am really quite a tamale snob. Let me explain.  You see, the ratio of well prepared tamales to terrible tamales is currently around 1 to 100.  What makes a bad tamale?  First, the masa.  A bad tamale has either dry, crumbly masa, or gooey, undercooked masa.  Typically you see the former, which is why […]

Bock Beer Macaroni and Cheese

You can blame Twitter for this one … While tweeting yesterday with @KerrygoldUSA we were discussing macaroni and cheese.  Specifically, we were discussing the seasonality of the dish.  Some folks apparently feel that macaroni and cheese is a cool weather dish … only.  In my humble opinion, even if it is piping hot from the […]

Chorizo Stuffed Bacon Wrapped Dates

Happy Cinco de Mayo!! Rather than give you yet another dip, enchilada, nacho, or taco recipe I thought to provide you a spicy/salty nibble to help soak up all the celebratory May 5th drinks.  For a long while I have been in love with bacon wrapped dates.  Something about sweet, tender dates wrapped in crisp, […]

‘Super Evil’ Bacon Meatballs

I would like to ask my cardiologist to forgive me for what I am about to do … When ever you see a show about ‘extreme’ cuisine,  or read an article about the ultimate (Insert Food Item Here), there is a pretty good chance that the ‘extreme’ item will include some bacon.  Bacon has reached […]

Shredded Beef Sliders with Carrot Apple Slaw

I think the best way to cook a beef roast is in the slow cooker. I love that I can spend about ten minutes puttering in the kitchen, then I sit back for eight hours and, as if by magic, I have a pot of juicy, tender, wonderfully flavorful beef.  Speaking of beef, this is […]

Valentine’s Day is coming. We do not really celebrate Valentine’s Day here at Casa Shenanigans.  No heart shaped boxes of candy, no bunches of wilted grocery store roses, and no adult-sized footie pajamas in the mail.  No, we do not celebrate with silly tokens.  We celebrate with food.  Sometimes we go out, but more often […]

Boudin and Green Pepper Quiche

Breakfast for a crowd can be something of a nightmare. It is not that I dislike having people over – far from it – but when it is breakfast we are talking about it can get a little tense, especially if eggs are involved.  Cooking eggs in a manner that appeals to everyone is a […]

Bacon Dill Potato Salad

The holidays are not always frosty and cold. Sometimes they are downright warm! At least they are in the Dallas area.  Sure, last year we enjoyed a white Christmas, but our typical Christmas is spent in often balmy 70 degree weather.  When I plan my Christmas Day meal I pay close attention to the weather.  […]
