Chorizo Verde Tostadas

Chorizo Verde Tostadas

Verde Tostada

When we originally planned this recipe, it was going to be …….you guessed it a pizza! We wanted to incorporate salsa verde, and chorizo and make a pizza.

Now, I am not trying to be a food snobby bitch, but some pictures of food that I see on the internet are less than appealing. The salsa verde/chorizo spread on a pizza dough was not an appetizing sight…….I could not put something that looked like that, in front of you!!!!!
I needed to make it more visually appealing……you all eat with your eyes…..I know we sure do. Continue reading

 Kit Kat candy bars are the star of this Kit Kat Pie. With a rich, sweet, dense, and chewy filling, in a flaky pie crust. Garnished with whipped topping ……and more candy!!!!!!

If you have been following us here at What the “Forks for Dinner”? you know Tim and I love desserts……….it’s the point of the whole meal…..just saying.

Kit Kat Pie

We also love candy bars! One of my favorite desserts is my Butterfinger Pie. I have made this pie for years and always gotten rave reviews. After we posted it I actually had a local person contact me and ask if I would make him some of the pies for an event at work. I did and they loved it!

So, how do you improve on what you think is perfection…..you try another candy bar. Kit Kat Bars were the perfect candy switch up for the Butterfinger Pie.

Caprese Chicken Tender Sandwich

Caprese Chicken Tender Sandwich

Chicken Caprese Sandwich
It’s time for lunch…..you want a sandwich. How about a Caprese Chicken Tender Sandwich? The Salad of Capri with all the color of the Italian flag. Not that I thought that when I was making this sandwich…..I was really thinking , what am I going to do with these chicken tenders ?????

Tim will attest to the fact that sometimes……ok all the time, when I am at the grocery store, my imagination overrides any realistic needs for groceries. If I see something that looks good……it doesn’t matter if I go to the store hungry or full……and I think it will work for a recipe, I buy it. Continue reading

Salmon Sriracha Tacos

Salmon Sriracha Tacos

If we can put it on a pizza… we can put it in a taco…….

Sriracha Salmon Taco 3

Sriracha Salmon Tacos………spicy Sriracha baked salmon in a crispy corn tortilla, then topped with cilantro slaw and avocado crema (fancy uh).

We love fish, but haven’t had it in quite some time. I think salmon is the best…….I usually just bake it and I make a mean cucumber dill sauce to go with it. (that recipe will be for another time). I wanted to do something different.
