My Version of Scalloped Potatoes

After about three hours of studying veterinary terminology, my brain felt raw yesterday.  After all that work, I wanted to enjoy something hearty and very yummy for dinner.  Something that would stick to my bones to bless me with a good nights sleep.  Kevin ran to the store before he came home from work to check out the meat section at H-E-B.  Lamb chops were the winner.  They were cut up and packed fresh by the butcher.  For dinner, we enjoyed rosemary lamb chops, dill and garlic asparagus, and scalloped potatoes. I’ve been making my scalloped potatoes for years and I can’t believe I haven’t shared my recipe with you guys yet!  People would beg me for the recipe whenever I would bring them for a work potluck.  They are super simple, you just have to put your time and effort into it.  I also wanted to test out our new mandolin. Haha.

Side Chick: White Truffle Mac & Cheese

Sometimes I underestimate myself in the kitchen.  I don’t have much confidence in whipping stuff together from the top of my head like my husband does.  He is able to think up something from who knows where and make it so delicious.  We were planning a crab cake dinner for Kevin’s parents and we thought mac & cheese would be a nice touch  as a side.  As tempted as I was to feed off of someones recipe, Kevin changed my mind. He told me NOT to look up any recipes and to use my imagination.  As I said, I’m not so confident in the kitchen.  I usually take a glance at other people’s ideas to make my own ideas, especially when I’m cooking for other people other than my husband.  Fortunately, making up this entire dish worked out for the best and came out fantastic.  Here is how I made my white truffle mac & cheese.

Italian Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms

This is a pretty easy appetizer that I tend to make on days I want to feed several people.  It doesn’t take too much to put together.  You can even pop these bad boys in the fridge until they have to be baked.  If you like spicy things, then this appetizer is definitely for you.  You can always substitute the spicy ingredients that I used in this recipe for mild ones, but for me… the hotter the better!  It’s spicy, it’s cheesy and it’s meaty.  You can’t go wrong with these stuffed mushrooms!

Florio’s Pizza… oh Florio’s.


   If I could use one word to describe Florio’s Pizza, it would be “STUPID”.  Florio’s is so good that it’s stupid.  Stupid delicious.  This place has been serving pizza in the San Antonio area since 1980 by a small family from New Jersey.  If you’re looking for some decadent and original New York style pizza in San Antonio, Florio’s is the place to be.  If you’ve lived here for a while and haven’t been, one word I should use to describe you is “STUPID” as well. Haha.  Don’t wait another minute.   Continue reading “Florio’s Pizza… oh Florio’s.”

You know the Moore’s love a great pasta dish.  I already showed you how to make our cajun alfredo.  Last night we spruced up our original alfredo recipe and made an herb alfredo sauce.  We purchased some andouille sausage that we wanted to try and added in some scallops .  How can you say no to that?
