Random Single Gal Recipe: Marinated Skirt Steak Tacos With Avocado

I'm pretty confident in the kitchen, but my red meat cooking skills are pretty hit or miss. I can roast the hell out of a pork tenderloin and make a super awesome cast iron chicken, but red meat gives me trouble. This weekend, I had a hankering for steak tacos and decided to take a…

Random Single Gal Recipe: The Grilled Turnip Sandwich Of Dreamz

Have you ever made a sandwich and thought, "Everything I've ever done in my life pales in comparison to the amazing achievement that is this sandwich"? That's what happened to me yesterday after I made this sandwich. It's vegetarian but packed full of flavor thanks to fresh mozzarella, crispy turnips (which are in season a…

Random Single Gal Recipe: Goopy Paltrow’s Sriracha & Lime Salmon With MomoFAKEu Brussels Sprouts

Here's the honest truth about how I typically come up with recipes. I either eat something at a restaurant or at a friend's home that I like and try to replicate it based on the primary flavors I taste and am able to identify, or I see a recipe somewhere, vaguely skim it, go to…

Random Single Gal Recipe: Pretty In Pink Pasta With Beets, Zucchini, And Mozzarella

I had a "Chopped" moment in the kitchen last night when I realized I had a few beets in the fridge that I really needed to use, but -- cue Ted Allen voiceover --  only the stovetop of my oven was working, so roasting was out of the question. I'd been feeling like pasta for…

Random Single Gal Recipe: Cast Iron Lemon-y Herb Chicken With Potatoes & Broccolini (Plus, Spiked Blue Raspberry Lemonade!)

The single most essential item in my kitchen might have to be the large cast iron pan my mom got me for Christmas. I've used it to cook nearly every day since I got it, and while I knew it was going to come in handy for cooking protein, I didn't realize that a cast…

Random Single Gal Recipe: Cherry Compote Cocktail

One of the weird byproducts of my ADD is that sometimes I cook just because I need to do something and making something -- in this case, edible -- gives me a beginning, middle, and end to focus on. So this weekend, out of the blue, I felt a deep, burning desire to focus my…

Random Single Gal Recipe: Roasted Pork Tenderloin & Kale Salad

My favorite thing about Random Single Gal Recipes is how randomly I post them! Anyway, I love to cook and I live alone and just because I'm single doesn't mean I don't deserve an extravagant home-cooked meal, okay? So sometimes, when I come up with something yummy to eat and easy to make I post…

Random Single Gal Recipe: Mustard, Soy & Honey-Glazed Pork Chops

Last night, I went to my local crappy grocery store in search of something to cook for dinner. Bypassing the chicken (it looked gross) and beef, I stood in front of the pork section and stared. I like to cook pork, but I usually do a full pork loin and eat it over the course of…

Random Single Gal Recipe: The Juicy Lucca Burger

Really, this burger recipe is my take on the Juicy Lucy which is what a burger stuffed with cheese is commonly called. I've added a little heat with the inclusion of jalapenos and cayenne into the meat, opted for an English Muffin instead of the usual bun, and topped it off simply with a slice…

Reader Call Out: Random Single Gal Snack Recipes!

Earlier this week, our marketing coordinator, knowing my favorite pastime is cooking/eating, sent me an excited email about the snack she invented one particularly hungry afternoon. "So, in the past week strawberries have been amazing," she wrote. "I decided to put a smear of fresh goat cheese on a Nilla Wafer and topped it with…
