beef and broccoli mushroom stir fry

I just looked back at the last 5 posts I made and they are all for sweets.  I swear we’ve been eating lots of good things other than sugar!  I’ve been perfecting this stir fry since mid-December.  Nothing is more comforting in wintertime than a warm beef and broccoli mushroom stir fry.  This rice bowl has made …

Homemade Marshmallows and Hot Cocoa

When I told my sister I made marshmallows she laughed and said, “why?”.  I know she thinks I am ridiculous and also that I should have another kid if I have enough time on my hands to make homemade marshmallows.  In my defense, I’ve been planning to make my own marshmallows for months now, and I’ve finally found the time to …

Summery Gazpacho Soup

It’s (still) summer even though I’m already doing what hubs calls “forcing fall” – wearing long sleeves, jackets and sweaters before it’s truly cold enough outside to do so. I love beginning of  the fall season, the first time you see your breath in the morning, first frost on the grass, until finally, the smell of …

Salmon en Croute

One of my favorite long-ago-cancelled-but still-running cooking shows is French Food at Home, featuring Laura Calder. Laura makes cooking French food seem like a snap and this most impressive looking salmon recipe is one of the best testaments to easy, yet snappy-looking, French fare. Your guests will think you’ve slaved for hours when, in fact, once you get …

Grilled Chicken Kebabs

This is my new favorite summer grilling recipe. These kebabs are SO GOOD they will even impress a Persian father-in-law (and I would hazard a guess that he’s eaten a few kebabs in his day)! I made a happy mistake and let the chicken marinate for two solid days in the fridge. Seriously, the two-day marinate is the …

Best Quiche Ever

Why is this quiche the Best Quiche Ever? Because I’ve put all my favorite things into it, and so can you. For me it’s bacon (no-brainer), mushrooms, and gruyere cheese. That’s it. Oh and eggs and cream of course. And maybe sautéed the mushrooms in shallots too. For you, maybe it’s spinach, leeks and zucchini? …

Guinness Affogato

In prep for the big Irish Day, Bon Appétit emailed the masses a photo/recipe for a Guinness Affogato earlier this week.  One quick read of the ingredients; Bailey’s Irish Cream, Guinness, espresso and ice cream, and I knew it was something I had to make and put it in my gob as soon as possible.

Spicy Tuna Roll

Today marks M’s Belly’s two year blog anniversary!  Woot!  When I look back into the post archives and see my first (uninterestingly written and poorly lit) post for mini beef wellingtons, I see I shot some of the photos outside on the condo balcony.  I remember March being simply lovely and in the mid-50’s that year for …

Nana’s Cookies

My parents came to visit last month and I was able to kill two birds with one stone, um, I mean, cookie.  I got to make our traditional family cookie with my mom AND participate with said cookie in the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap! A Christmas family tradition of ours is to make “Nana’s …

Indian Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

Ask my husband and he’ll disappointedly tell you I am NOT a fan of Halloween.  He LOVES Halloween.  He came home from school today and immediately put on his halloween skeleton shirt.  I blame my mother for my dislike of all things Halloweenish.  I do not like the scary movies, haunted houses, face-painting, and creepy …
