  • Smashed Pea Bruschetta with Mint

    June 26, 2013DishinandDishes

    If you’ve followed my blog for awhile, you know I am mildy obsessed with bruschetta of any type.  I seriously could make bruschetta and let it be my entire meal.  Toast some crostini, spread something hearty and wonderful on it and call it a day. My obsession began with classic Italian Bruschetta. And then I…

  • Hummus With Veggies

    June 4, 2013DishinandDishes

    Yesterday I started an inspirational program with other ladies at my church called Babes. Long story short, I want to feel healthier so I am embarking on the journey with my BFF workout partner Joy. I will never make it on rice cakes, so I have already started coming up with good recipes and snacking…

  • A Tale of Two Salsas – Featuring Guajillo Chiles

    May 18, 2013DishinandDishes

    I have an addiction for salsas. I seek them out at Mexican restaurants and always want to know what “secret” salsas they’re hiding and not bringing out unless asked for. Many places have specialty salsas that you can only get when asked.  My salsa fetish has me on a quest during this season of my life to try out…

  • Roasted Asparagus and Avocado Toast

    April 3, 2013DishinandDishes

    Spring is here and that means asparagus! We usually serve asparagus two ways, either roasted or grilled and it is so delicious! I don’t like to roast or grill it for more than just 10 minutes, because when it cooks too long it tends to get mushy and stringy. Only roasting it for a few…

  • Thai Peanut Dipping Sauce

    April 1, 2013DishinandDishes

    This recipe is one that will go along with a recipe I’ll be posting on Wednesday for Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps.  This Thai Peanut Dipping Sauce recipe is so good you will want to drink it with a straw, unless you make it with chunky peanut butter and then it will just plug up the…

  • Easy Guacamole

    September 17, 2012DishinandDishes

    Now, I have two issues with guacamole. One is that you really need to make it at the last possible moment.  If not, the avocado oxidizes and begins to turn brown.  Lime juice helps a little, but you don’t want the taste overpowered by too much lime juice, so it’s best to make it at…

  • Tropical Salsa

    April 8, 2012DishinandDishes

    We used to have a restaurant here on Lake Hefner that was island themed.  When it disappeared, I was beyond sad…I loved their food – cuban bread, fried plantains, and all the rest of their tropical themed cuisine. Last night, Mr. Wonderful and I spent a night on the patio.  We had planned on grilling…

  • Homemade Almond Butter

    March 22, 2012DishinandDishes

    Last month while visiting my brother and sis-in-law in Phoenix, we visited a Trader Joe’s store.  I purchased a jar of almond butter there and then proceeded over the next month to languish over the jar, inserting a small spoon in it and savoring each nutty tasting in order to slowly stall to the day…

  • The Best Salsa Recipe

    March 22, 2012DishinandDishes

    I started making this recipe years ago, and it has remained a favorite in my family ever since.  If I try to put a jarred salsa on the table, my kids mutiny against me and threaten to not clean their rooms until I make the good stuff. Just kidding on the kids…but they really do…

  • Black Bean Salsa -Oklahoma Caviar!

    March 22, 2012DishinandDishes

    Warning! This recipe is highly addictive! Mr. Wonderful and I made this last night while waiting for baby-back ribs to slow-cook in the oven.  By the time the ribs were done, we weren’t very hungry. Why, you ask? Because we ate half a bowl of this stuff. I love this recipe.  This recipe incorporates many…

  • Appetizer Skewers

    March 22, 2012DishinandDishes

    This is a super fun, easy and delicious appetizer to make for your next party.   The girls and I gobbled these up Saturday night.  They are kind of like a salad-on-a-stick and great for a before-dinner little bite of a snack. There isn’t a science to what you can put on your skewers.  Simply…
