Pasta Salad Primavera

It’s the ultimate summer side dish — a nice, cool tub of noodles with some crisp vegetables and flavorful cheese, basking in the glory of a light vinaigrette dressing.

And yet, there is so much that can go wrong.

A delicious side dish with any summer meal.

Two-Garlic Spicy Chicken and Pineapple

As promised we are continuing to show you the ways of the chicken rub.

When Michelle was in the mood for something spicy on the chicken, we got to sniffing.

We came up with a meal that is sweet and spicy. We also had an ingredient in there that surprised us both.

Spice-rubbed chicken, fresh fruit and a rice dish. What could go wrong?

It’s Hard to Cook When You Can’t Turn on the Water

It seemed like it was going to be a regular Sunday. Walk the dog. Eggs and toast with coffee. Do some laundry.

It was that last step that threw a wrench in the whole works.

Also, it didn’t look good when I walked down the stairs to find standing water-like substance in our basement.

Not Your Ordinary Hamburger

Last week when I came home from work I wanted meat. Grilled meat.

And we were scheduled to have some vegetarian meal. I quick canceled that and started defrosting some hamburger to make what will now be known as Feaston’s signature hamburger.

One Simple Mahi-Mahi Fillet

Apologies, readers — this post was supposed to go up last week, but uh, I forgot to write it. So here it is in all it’s glory! — Michelle

One of the first things we cooked on the grill this season was mahi-mahi (Hawaiian for strong-strong) and boy, was it ever delicious. But then again, it’s hard to make something taste terrible when it’s coming off the grill.

We’ve really been on a fish kick lately, especially since we discovered that there’s a whole world outside of tilapia and salmon. Actually, I think we might have mentioned it before, but we are done with tilapia. See ya! You had a nice run.

It's only good fish from here on out.
