Grilled Bok Choy

I’ve mentioned before that I like Bok Choy, so when I saw a recipe for Grilled Baby Bok Choy I knew I had to try it.  I first saw this on the DadCooksDinner blog, but his had a Southwest flair to it and I was looking for something to complement an Asian influenced dinner.  Reading […]

Corn, Tomato and Avocado Salad

I love the Internet.  You can find the answer to any question within a few clicks (and since it is on the Internet it must be true). In the latest case I wanted to find a nice side for a meal I was making.  A Google search of “side dish to serve with empanadas” brought […]

Vegetarian Thai Red Curry

If you haven’t made anything from Eating Well you are definitely missing out.  The dishes I have made from here are always fantastic.  True, they are often a bit more work than other things I make, but I’ve never regretted the extra time spent. What I found interesting about their Vegetarian Thai Red Curry dish […]

75th Post Cookie Giveaway

Hurray!  Today marks the 75th post since I started the Cooking with an Evolved Dad blog.  Along the way I’ve tried a lot of new dishes, worked on my photography skills, and heard from a number of you that you were going to try something I had made. To celebrate the occasion I’m going to […]

Pulled Pork Wraps

I’ve made crock-pot pulled pork a few different times, seemingly each with a slightly different variation.  My most recent iteration* involved pouring a beer into the crock-pot along with some barbeque sauce, an onion … and of course the pork.  The beer was the different twist for me.  I have used root beer in the […]

Coming Soon: Cookie Giveaway

Somewhere out on the horizon (out beyond the neon lights*) is the 75th post since I started the Cooking with an Evolved Dad blog.  Actually the horizon is getting closer and closer, as this is the 72nd post I’ve published.  To celebrate the big 75 I will be holding a contest in conjunction with that […]

Zucchini Parmesan Crisps

For Mother’s Day dinner I was looking for a multi-purpose side dish.  Ideally I wanted something that could serve as both a starch and vegetable, be easy to make, and taste great all at the same time.  Tall order right? My brother-in-law’s sister came to the rescue with a recipe she had recently shared on […]

Paul’s Beer Bread

Years ago a buddy of mine from college gave me a recipe for a quick, simple bread with beer as a primary ingredient.  Given how long ago this was – well before I evolved into someone who actually did anything in the kitchen – I have no idea why Paul thought to share this with […]

Oh So Nice Chicken and Rice

Sometimes entire dinner ideas just fall into my lap.  This was true last week when an email from All Recipes highlighted a Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken, and right after that featured a nice looking Carrot Rice dish.  Paraphrasing one of my favorite Maurice Sendak books: In May I truly think it best To be a […]
