Mahi Mahi Fish Tacos (Ay Que Rica!)

Living in Southern California it’s fairly easy to find a solid fish taco but they’re often battered and fried, and if your looking for grilled you’ll likely have to pay a small fortune for them. That being said, this recipe appealed to me instantly; not only was it for grilled tacos, but I could enjoy […]

30-Minute Chipotle Turkey Chili

I know, I know, there have been quite a few hispanic inspired dishes recently but I promise this is not strictly a south of the border site and more diverse fare will come your way soon. Now that I’ve hopefully assuaged your misgivings, I can assure you that even after chimichangas, fish tacos, and grilled […]

Overnight Cinnamon Rolls

How to describe these???? slices of heaven, gastronomic bliss, or perhaps the best frigging breakfast in the world; yeah that sounds right. These are to die for, or should I say hop out of bed faster than a speeding bullet for. I baked 13 of these guys Saturday morning and while I tried my hardest […]

P.B. Brownies the most decadent dessert in my arsenal!

I know these don’t look like much but take my word for it; these are the best brownies that you will EVER sink your teeth into (unless of course you don’t like peanut butter).  Peanut Butter Brownies? you say. I realize that for some, a brownie is synonymous with chocolate but here at leggycooks we […]

Resurrection Brunch Fare: Pecan Sticky Buns

Today’s recipe for sticky buns may very well be the most decadent thing I have EVER made, and definitely not healthy in anyway. However, when I saw a photo of one on the cover of the March issue of Bon appetite I made a decision to temporarily forget my health conscious ways, and boy am […]

Herb Chard and Feta Soup

Hey leggy cooksphiles!  I’m so glad you are still tuning in,  the frequency of  post over the last few months certainly doesn’t warrant such devotion. Your loyalty will be richly rewarded today though with a stunner of a soup that will knock your chef hat right off. Over the last few months Brian (my live […]
