Williams Kitchen has moved!

This has been such an amazing journey and it's not stopping. As I said in my 2012 recap, changes are coming! Blogger has been so very good to us for the last 5 years but it's time to move on to our own server and our very own domain!

I've been working very hard to get the new blog up and running. And it's ready! (kind of) I still need to transfer more of the recipes from this blog to the new one but that will happen over time. This site will remain open until I do that but there will be no new posts here.

This is important!
Update your RSS readers to the new site's url. To update your RSS click here.

Now go check out the new design and features (like printer friendly recipes!) at the new Williams Kitchen

Mediterranean Couscous Cabbage Rolls

Mediterranean Couscous Cabbage Rolls

Did you know Couscous is basically pasta? However it's twice as good for you as pasta is because it's pure grain and water instead of egg, grain, and water like pasta.
"Like macaroni and spaghetti, couscous is made from semolina flour, but rather than mixing the semolina with a prescribed amount of water and/or egg into a dough, couscous is made by rubbing the semolina between moistened hands until the flour combines with just enough water to form hundreds of tiny grains" Link

Freezer Friendly: Homemade Oatmeal Pucks

I love oatmeal in the winter and I've posted about my homemade oatmeal before. However I don't always have time to make homemade oatmeal so I occasionally get the instant stuff.

We were walking through Costco a few weeks ago and I ran across frozen oatmeal pucks in the freezer section. A light bulb went off in my head. I can do that!!

Quinoa Kale Bites Appetizer

One of our favorite things about the holidays is reconnecting with friends. Recently we had a couple of friends over for dinner where we served these appetizer bites. They were a huge hit and are so tasty!
We made them about 2-3 inches in diameter and got about 10-12 bites. We topped them with tzatziki sauce and a fresh tomato salsa on the others. They were the perfect vehicle for the toppings.

Both Quinoa and kale are superfoods and they are packed with nutrients. Our guest gobbled them up.

Copy-Cat Recipe: Macaroni Grill's Penne Rustica

When The Other Williams and I worked the 9-5 we used to occasionally slip away for a lunch date and one of our favorite places close by was Macaroni Grill.

Our dish of choice was the sinfully delicious Penne Rustica. We would actually just share one order because it's that rich and filling. It's a cream sauce with shrimp, chicken, and prosciutto. Yea, it's really good.

Homemade Gnocchi & Sausage in Red Sauce

I always wished I was Italian. I love the food, the language, the culture but my English/German hertiage is a far cry from Italy. I like to think I have a little italian great great great grandmother somewhere in my genes. What? A girl can dream...

Neither of my parents or grandparents really cooked and my mother hated cooking. My grandmother made some mean cornbread dressing and spaghetti but no one in my family really enjoyed cooking the way The Other Williams and I do.

We can spend a Friday night, delicious Italian wine in hand, creating Old World Italian recipes from scratch and be perfectly happy. At least The Other Williams has a little Italian genes running through her blood.

Salmon Black Bean Tacos with Pineapple Salsa

But R, it's winter. Why are you blogging a summer dish in winter? Several reasons:
  1. This is what I was craving for lunch
  2. It was in the 70's in SC
  3. Lastly, most of the ingredients were canned or put up in summer!
