Crawfish Pie

Have you ever heard of Crawfish Pie? Me neither until I saw one put together on Farmhouse Rules, a cooking show filmed on a farm in the Hudson Valley.

I was intrigued, enough to jot down the bones of the recipe and then go out and create my own version. We loved this take on a seafood dinner. Harper wouldn't touch it - mostly because it wasn't a PB&J sandwich.

Salisbury Steak Meatballs

When I was a child I remember hearing adults say how so-and-so is photogenic but so-and-so is not photogenic. I didn't understand what that meant until I started blogging and realized how some foods don't photograph well - no matter how scrumptious it may be, the picture looks like a regurgitated version of it's former self.
Trust me this is a before picture.
Salisbury steak is a dish made from a blend of ground beef and other ingredients, which is shaped to resemble a steak, and is usually served with gravy or brown sauce.

Menu of the Week

Another week of delicious meals brought to you by Home with Mandy! We began our week with one of Jim's most favorite sandwiches, the Marlboro Man Sandwich. I created a copy cat recipe from a local restaurant - probably cost me a quarter of the price to recreate. Lots of great ideas this week, enjoy!

Skirt Steak with Cilantro Chimichurri and Carrot-Citrus Hash

This recipe card from is bent, torn, stained ... all proof that this is an awesome dinner. I have made it probably once a month for the last six months and if you know me, you know I don't repeat recipes very often.

There is something about the sweet citrus carrots and the addictingly hot chimichurri sauce that seeps down over the steak. Jim and I clean our plates!
