Cheddar Corn Quinoa Mini Frittatas with Optional Bacon

Posted on Wednesday, September 4, 2013 in One Dish Two Ways

I have a confession to make. We’ve taught our daughter to say “cray cray.” As in, crazy? Cray cray? Yeah, we say that around here. It started out as ironic-only use and then it sort of creeped its way into our everyday lexicon.

Black Bean Tostadas with Slow-Cooker Cheddar-Beer Chicken (or Not)

Posted on Monday, March 12, 2012 in One Dish Two Ways

Tostadas, a Mexican dish that consists of a crisp corn tortillas layered with refried beans and all kinds of other good things, lend themselves well to a variety of palates. Diners can assemble their own, adding what they want, leaving off what they don’t.

So, naturally, they’re perfect for the mixed veggie/carnie house. In this version, the meat-eater gets a healthy dose of spicy, tender shredded chicken slow-cooked in beer; the vegetarian still gets plenty to eat, including delicious, smoky homemade refried black beans. Win all around.
