Spinach Artichoke Melts

Spinach and artichoke cooked into a creamy dip, then combined with a bit of chicken and some good bread and finally grilled makes for a fine meal on it's own. Add to that the bonus of lots of leftover dip for snacking and you have a dinner that really makes sense.

Taco Tuesday - Chicken ChorizoEveryday Meals

by zirbirt | 6/3/2015

I am a huge fan of Chorizo. If you're not familiar with it, it is a Mexican ground pork sausage (usually sold in sausage form), that has a smoky and mildly spicy flavor. Because it has a lot of flavor, not much needs to be done to make it into something delicious.

Breaded Porkchops with Thick Mushroom GravyEveryday Meals

by zirbirt | 6/2/2015

I don't think food has to be fancy to be tasty. I have to make my family dinner every night, and I don't have the time or money for the crazy elaborate recipes I find on most cooking sites. The thing is, I don't want to just make the same stuff over and over, and I don't want to make bland boring food. So, my goal many nights is to just make something basic into something delicious.

Well, it's grilling season again, and that means it is time to dust off our old Barbeque grills and smokers and get ready to share our grilled creations with family and friends. With so many sales on ribs, they are hard to pass up, but how can you make them without having to go outside?

Breakfast night, a glorious night of fist bumps and happy family members. This time I chose to treat them to cinnamon French toast and scrambled eggs. Seems pretty straight forward, but maybe I do it just a little different than your used to.

Simple Stovetop Mac & CheeseEveryday Meals

by zirbirt | 5/26/2015

Ok, when we think of mac & cheese, most of us think of that boxed stuff. It's supposed to be faster than home made and still be good and creamy. The truth of it though, you can make much creamier, more flavorful and far better max and cheese in the same amount of time with very little skill required.

What is Cooking Skillups?

Most cooking sites and food blogs tend to favor elaborate recipes that requires a lot of skill, some luck and hard to find ingredients. As a home cook, I know how difficult it can be to find simple meals that you can easily prepare for your family on a daily basis. Because of this we get caught in a rut of making the same meals over and over, or worse relying on frozen and packaged foods to keep our family fed.

The goal of Cooking Skillups is to give us normal home cooks a place to share recipes, ideas and experiences; as well as successes and even failures. So together we can help each other figure out new, cost effective and delicious ways to bring joy to our dinner tables.
