Make a Tuna Melt Sandwich on the Stove

Every hometown diner has it… The Tuna Melt with Fries. It’s beloved comfort food for just about everyone including myself and especially my wife. So, on her late night at work, I decided to surprise her with her favorite comfort food upon her arrival home. It’s actually a very simple dish to make so here…

Clam Chowder Seafood Stew

I love Campbells Manhattan Clam Chowder. It’s one of my staple foods that I go to when it’s cold outside. Colder than 80 degrees is “cold” in South Florida. Campbells Clam Chowder on its own is very good. But it can be so much more…  you can make Campbells Clam Chowder better. It can be…

Indian Butter Chicken in the Instapot

I don’t have too many cooking toys, but my favorite one after my coffee maker of course, is my Instapot. Or do I call it an Instant Pot? That might lead to some misinterpretations. Back to the point, I think that Instapot’s do very well with stews as well as other hearty dishes and Indian…

How To Make Eggplant Parmigiana

In Italian food there is no dish as famous as Eggplant Parmigiana — sometimes just referred to as Eggplant Parm. This hearty dish could run you upwards of $20 at any nice restaurant and maybe $12 or more at the takeout, or you could easily make it at home like I did for under $5 per…

Finally Shakshuka – Easy Recipie

So, I’ve finally made my own version of Shakshouka. The Israeli/Arab/Mediterranean dish is one of my favorites and I always wanted to create my own since first having one on Stirling Avenue in Hollywood Florida. My version is made with eggplant just to make it a bit more ‘meaty’. But do not worry my vegan…

Graduate from a kit Salad

I have to admit I love the “kit” salads they sell in Publix and Walmart. I mean how easy is that, you buy a ready-made salad, use your knife to open the bag (or scissors), dump it on a plate and you’re done! But holy S**T that is boring. Why get the dump when you…

Cauliflower Fried Rice

Ok most of us love fried rice, beef fried rice, chicken fried rice, shrimp fried rice and so on. But how healthy is it? We all know it’s not healthy at all. But what if there was an alternative that could give you the same flavor and texture while actually being good for you? There…

Easy Chanukah Latkes

The most celebrated Jewish Holiday is Chanukah. Even non-Jews are taking part in it, perhaps because it is often so close to Christmas. I’ll leave it up to our friends at Wikipedia and Chabad.org to give you the history behind Chanukah, but the holiday has been continuously celebrated all around the world for well over…

Kale Cranberry Pecan Artichoke Salmon Salad

It’s Monday and that means its time for a healthy meal to make up all the indulgences of the weekend. So, to start this week off right, we are going to “eat clean.” One could even say “paleo” but I don’t know if I’ll go that far. In any case, we are saving money by…

Shrimp Caesar Salad 

  This wonderful salad could set you back $14-20 at most restaurants. Here in our house, I’ve managed to make two of these salads for less than $10.   And yes, it’s remarkably easy… At my local Walmart, I picked up a Ceasar salad “kit” – all in one bag – for about $3. This…

Hurricane French Toast

We’re in the middle of a Hurricane Irma (HurricaneIrma) and with mother nature throwing her worst at Florida and Cuba, we’ve become refugees as we flee to higher ground. During a hurricane you can expect the power to go out, thus routine cooking becomes impossible unless you have a gas stove and the refrigerator will no…

Grilled Cheese – Home Cooking 

Eating well does not always mean eating out… You might think from this blog that I live an amazing life and eat out every day. The truth is, that no I don’t. I live a very modest life and have to budget my limited resources just like anyone else. That means I have to eat…

Indian Chicken Curry & Rice

Love the exotic taste of Indian food? Who doesn’t! Fortunately it’s not hard to make at all, it, like all my other meals just takes a little bit of time.  You’ll need chicken (naturally), chick peas, stewed tomatoes, an onion, curry, cumin, chili powder, green chilies, garlic, and healthy brown rice.  To start, in a…

Easy Chicken Soup

It’s hard to think that anyone can catch a cold during our ‘cold’ season, but this past week, my fiancé was sick so soon enough I was too. And that’s where “Jewish Penicillin” comes in – Chicken soup. Chicken soup by itself is a rather boring affair especially when it’s from a can. Apart from…

A Clean Food – Chicken Chili

 Yummy Chili Goodness! Clean food is the idea (movement) that food should have the least amount of fat and calories possible. It’s simple and clean cooking. Of course simple and plain does mean your food has to taste quick and easy. One of my favorite big dish cooking projects is what I like to…

At Home – Sizzle Steak

I love my future wife 100% but she does not like to eat any 4 legged animals. So, out of respect I don’t eat any of that around her. Tonight however she is out and it’s time for Steak.  A steak dinner in a nice restaurant could set you back $20-$30 or more, but cooking it at…

At Home

Yes I can cook on my own, the fact that I can makes me enjoy all the restaurants that I find myself and my soon to be wife in. Not only is cooking at home typically much cheaper, it’s also much healthier. Stopping by our local Safeway, I was on a mission for dinner. After…
