Seared Chicken & Honey Carrots!

Posted by Gianna Elizabeth Ianos on Wednesday, April 23, 2014, In : Searing Meats 


Seared Chicken

Chicken is such a versatile food that goes with just about any side dish too.This dish pictured I fixed with a side of honey carrots, it was a nice combo meal and was very satisfying.

Searing meats is something that has been done mostly by restaurants boasting that they have the secret to keeping your meats juicy and tasty.

How do you sear your meats? well it takes a heavy frying pan, preferably a Food Safe pan because these can take the heat and hold it too which is important for...

Chicken Pot Pie Oh My!?

Posted by Gianna Elizabeth Ianos on Friday, February 14, 2014, In : Eat for Life 


Creamy, Dreamy, Chicken Pot Pie

How do you spell Orgasmic? or maybe a better question is how would something taste with that description. What comes to my mind is Awesomeness x a 1,000!!!! Good food is not a rare thing, is it? by the TV commercials you see today one would think so....

I swear every other commercial is for Jenny Craig with the now skinny Marie Osmond, OMG, she looks great but really she is hawking for Jenny Craig? What gives, except $$$ for her checkbook. Then the next ad is for...

Meat with a side of T Bone Steak?

Posted by Gianna Elizabeth Ianos on Sunday, January 5, 2014, In : Meat what's for Dinner? 


Brandy Seared T Bone Steak

Divadish Loves good meat and preferably fixed Med-Rare, Yum.... Good organic farmed raised Beef can be eaten a little rare because it is so sweet and soft anyway because of how the cattle are being fed and grazed, it does make a BIG DIFFERENCE, just ask a cattleman or a qualified butcher. A Great meal starts with Great Meat! So when my daughter asks for Meat with a side of Meat I know what she feels like.. it is usually a steak... What else. ?!

Maybe it is the Vampire...

Brandy -Seared Steak!

Posted by Gianna Elizabeth Ianos on Friday, July 12, 2013, In : Man Cave 


Brandy Steak

Divadish loves her marinades, this one pictured is so good!

Using liqueurs or marmalade's enhances the texture and the taste. Of course you could do a little sipping before you turn it into a marinade.


Using Brandy, King's Spice and Garlic Powder with a dash of Sea Salt, mix in a little Olive oil and Whala it all starts to come together.

Brush the mixture all over pierced steaks, let sit for app. 3-5 minutes, grill in NSF Calaphlon pan and cook to medium rare, app. 160' internal temp...

Chicken Pie!

Posted by Gianna Elizabeth Ianos on Monday, May 20, 2013, In : Pie for Dinner? 


Meat pies are very popular in Europe, here they are okay, but most do not make anything special.

I decided to change that!

Pictured is a Chicken Pie, loaded with organic chicken breast chunks, fresh peas, carrots, green bean, and even corn.

I make my gravy with cream, butter and cream of chicken soup with a dash of this and that.

The crusts are organic too, but not made by me, I forgo that for someone else to do as long as the quality is good.

This whole process from start to finish takes app. 20 ...

Italian Dinner for you!

 Italian  Dinner for you by Divadish Kitchens & Catering

This is one of my Sunday's dinners. My parents both were big pasta eaters, but the sauce is what made that pasta just go down so much more. The red sauce was cooked for hours and it was made fresh with all the right seasonings, leftover meats and yes plenty of cheese & wine added to the slow simmering sauce. Just looking at this picture makes me hungry.Now according to my mother we always had to have a salad with every meal, and she fav...

Steaks

Posted by Gianna Elizabeth Ianos on Friday, October 21, 2011, In : Meat Lover's 






The one thing about being a chef is basically you can fix anything you want for dinner.
The above meal is one of those I feel like it meals.

Ever have that Meat Craving,,, ? if so this meal will satisfy it.....!

Here is how I made my steak.

First select a good quality Sirloin -Tip Steak, 2-3" thick watch out for veining, because those make the steak tough.
Always use hormone -Free meat and free range Black-Angus, that way the meat is pretty much guaranteed to be tender and healthier for y...

Berry-Wine Chicken & Parmesean Potatoes

Posted by Gianna Elizabeth Ianos on Thursday, May 12, 2011, In : ECSTASY MEALS! 
Divadish Loves too cook with Wines... Why,, because you can sip a little out of the bottle too!!! Just kidding......!

No, really, the taste that wines add to the flavors of meats, soups, sauces, and salad dressings, is Phenomenal!!!
Combine all of that with special blends of seasoning and you have a Winner each and every time.
The above picture is just one particular winner.
I marinated (4) chicken thighs over night in a semi-sweet berry wine & lime juice, with my special blends of season...

Pasta Soup!

Posted by Gianna Elizabeth Ianos on Tuesday, April 26, 2011, In : Soup time! 

"Picture this," as Estelle Getty from Golden Girls use to say before she went into her story!

Soup is always on my menus when I prepare food for my clients. 
It adds balance to a meal and can also be a meal when they are as Hearty as the one pictured above.
This soup has a rich red sauce, fresh zucchini,carrots,chunk tomatoes, and  egg noodles.
Added a little semi - sweet red wine and  good amounts of Italian seasonings.
Simmered for 6-8 hours and let the flavors come together and HMMMMMMMM...

Spices ???

Posted by Gianna Elizabeth Ianos on Thursday, March 31, 2011, In : Spices & Meal planning 

Ginger Steak #48

Ginger Steak & Edamame Beans
Comfort Food:
Whole grain rice, flank steak,edamame (soybeans) and a little fire added to round out this yummy dish.
When I plan my evening dinners I always , always spice things up a notch.
Why?
Because the heat of spices are very good for your body.
How?
It breaks down our cholesterol,and buildups in our arteries.
It also adds flavor and we use less salt because it is not needed.
When you do you own meal planning look at what you have f...

Spaghetti Bolognese #47

Posted by Gianna Elizabeth Ianos on Tuesday, March 22, 2011, In : Chef Gianna 

Spaghetti Bolognese

Spaghetti Bolognese
This is one of Divadish's all time favorite comfort foods!
It is rich, full of tender meats, and it is definitely one to Lust for!
The sauce is thicker , because it has tomato chunks in it and chopped onions.
The combination's of simmered meats, and a special mix of seasonings, and letting it slow cook for over 8+ hours gives this dish it's rich but delicate taste.
For this particular  recipe I used Flank steak & 93% ground chuck.
I browned th...
