Beef in red wine

Last week I scored when I grabbed this big block of brisket for $18. I cut them up into 4 pieces that I know I can do 4 dinners. So Thursday afternoon after stopping by at Wholefoods and found some sale on merlot and sauvignon, I thought I would do my own version of beouf…

Another budget dinner

I try to work on a budget for our meal. I like to challenge myself to bring food to the table that if possible less than $10 that is not just pasta and mac and cheese or ramen noodle. If we can have dinner for 3, which actually 5 with our big appetite family, that…

Over the weekend, I grabbed a big giant pack of brisket that was on sale for $18 and I know I can cut them up into 4 or 5 big pieces. Meaning 5 different meals. I have been shopping at Aldi, Sprouts, and Wal-Mart. Every time I go to Aldi, I always got a full…

Parmesan mushroom risotto in Instant Pot + shrimp 

Risotto, that dish somehow scares me. Not that I don’t like it, but it is a dish that always been broadcast and finicky, hard to make, hard to get the right consistency. And that was on food network, every time I watch someone making them, the chefs always make that comment and critics. So when…

8 minutes Spaghetti

Ever Since I tried to cook spaghetti in Instant Pot, I never go back to the stove method anymore. I mean why using 2 pots when you can use just 1 pot? There was time I was thrilled to be able to cook my spaghetti in the microwave using my Pampered Chef Deep Covered Baker,…
