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 …

Perfect Filet Mignon at Home

As I mentioned in the last post, I always cook a special dinner for The Hubs on Valentines Day.  This filet is the To Die For cornerstone of said special meal.  If you like meat and have a fancy occasion on which you are willing to drop a few extra bucks, this recipe is for YOU.  This …

Skillet Lasagna

Italian, Italian, Italian, it’s all I’m pregnantly, I mean presently, craving at the moment.  I want noodles with tomato sauce and CHEESE, cheese, and more cheese.  Not just any old crappy cheese either, it’s got to be fresh mozzarella!  I stumbled across a few different recipes for skillet lasagna and thought, “lasagna from start to …

BA’s September Cover: Grandma’s Pizza!

Bon Appétit’s September cover recipe is homemade pizza with “grandma style pizza crust”.  I don’t know about your grandma, but my Slovak Nana never made pizza dough.  Pierogis, halupki, layered jello, and a mean pot roast, yes.  Pizza dough, no.  I think what constitutes this pizza dough as “grandma style” is the fact that you …

My Favorite Burger (also, I’m BAAAAACK!!!)

I’ve taken a small hiatus from cooking, writing and socializing for the past two months.  July and August have been a whirlwind of brutal change for me!  We sold our condo and moved from the bright downtown city core to quiet suburbia.  No more car alarms, helicopters, sirens, or gunshots!  When you turn off the lights at …

Steamed Rainbow Trout with Garlic and Butter

I’m home from Big Sky now, and already missing it’s bluey, snow-capped mountains.  My sissy and her hubs showed us a great time!!! In five days we managed to fit in a trip to Yellowstone, fly fishing, several naps, and even a mountainous trail ride on horseback.  We truly enjoyed Yellowstone, as neither The Hubs nor I …

Sticky Sweet Bourbon BBQ Sauce

I love to grill meat!  The great outdoors, the smell, the flames, the seared, browned exterior crust over a juicy meaty interior; honestly, what’s not to love?  Did you know May is National Barbecue Month?  I learned this news nugget when Four Roses Bourbon approached me and asked if I would create a BBQ sauce from their single barrel …

Taco Spaghetti Pie

I mentioned last week how much The Hubs loves Turkey Taco Tuesday.  I mean, he LOVES Taco Tuesday, like it’s his favorite meal of the week.  Fancy doesn’t matter with my husband, only taste.  I have Turkey Taco Tuesday down to less than 30 minutes from start to finish, and that’s WITH homemade salsa!  We often have …

Turkey Meat Loaf

I hail from the Midwest so you know I enjoy a good meatloaf.  You will find a lot of meatloaf at the Meat and Threes here in The South, typically smothered in gravy with a side of buttery mashed potatoes.  Delicious, yes, but also pretty fattening.  I lightened my loaf with ground turkey and panko …
