Olive Oil Home Remedies


Olive oil is a universal ingredient that can be used in a variety of different meals. And, olive oil is a universal ingredient for life with a number of different uses around the house. First of all, olive oil is great for polishing wood furniture, conditioning leather, and shining stainless steel. If you have a squeaky door hinge or stuck zipper, dab some olive oil with a cotton swab and the issue should be cleared up.

Also, olive oil can be used as sunburn relief or a multipurpose skin moisturizer. Olive oil can be used to moisturize and strengthen nails as well as maintain your manicure. If you have a stomach ache, just take a tablespoon of olive oil and it should subdue the pain.

What unconventional ways do you use olive oil?

How To Make: Tortilla Soup


One of our favorite days of the week is Friday, and not just because it’s the start of the weekend, but also because our soup of the day is the classic Tortilla! This spicy stew never fails to please (unless, of course, “spicy” isn’t for you!), and today we would like to provide you with a quick and easy recipe to make this soup at home.  With only a few ingredients and fellow spice-lovers to share with, this recipe will become a permanent one in your home!


2 (10.5 ounce) cans condensed chicken and rice soup

1 (10 ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chile peppers

1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce

8 ounces tortilla chips

4 ounces shredded Cheddar cheese

In a medium saucepan over medium high heat, combine the soup, tomatoes and chilies and tomato sauce. Bring just to a boil and remove from heat. Place some tortilla chips in the bottom of an individual bowl and sprinkle cheese over the chips. Pour soup over the chips and cheese.

Easy, right? Enjoy!

How To Make: Chicken Pot Pie

If you have visited Stanford Grill or any of our Copper Canyon Grills, you have probably come face to face with our scrumptious chicken pot pies! It’s so hard to resist them once that savory aroma has wafted to your table… Why did I just order a salad – again?!

If it is difficult to get our chicken pot pies off your mind after giving them a little taste (or even just a thought!), have no fear because today we would like to share with you an easy and fool-proof recipe to make your very own at home!


1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – cubed

1 cup sliced carrots

1 cup frozen green peas

1/2 cup sliced celery

1/3 cup butter

1/3 cup chopped onion

1/3 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/4 teaspoon celery seed

1 3/4 cups chicken broth

2/3 cup milk

2 (9 inch) unbaked pie crusts


1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C.)

2. In a saucepan, combine chicken, carrots, peas, and celery. Add water to cover and boil for 15 minutes. Remove from heat, drain and set aside.

3. In the saucepan over medium heat, cook onions in butter until soft and translucent. Stir in flour, salt, pepper, and celery seed. Slowly stir in chicken broth and milk. Simmer over medium-low heat until thick. Remove from heat and set aside.

4. Place the chicken mixture in bottom pie crust. Pour hot liquid mixture over. Cover with top crust, seal edges, and cut away excess dough. Make several small slits in the top to allow steam to escape.

Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until pastry is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cool for 10 minutes before serving.



Gluten Free-dom


Did you know that at both Stanford Grill and all of our Copper Canyon Grill locations we have a gluten-free menu?

Eating gluten-free has numerous health benefits, including improving cholesterol levels, promoting digestive health, and increasing energy levels (if you have a gluten intolerance)! Don’t be fooled though, just because something is gluten-free does not mean there will be a sacrifice of flavor!

Our gluten-free menu at Copper Canyon Grill is graced with dishes such as our classic Wood-Fired Rotisserie Chicken, saucy BBQ Ribs, Filet (with no Cabernet Sauce), Ice Cream, and much more, while our Stanford menu also contains fulfilling plates such as fresh Tuna Sashimi and a Hardwood Grilled Filet as well.

If you are on a restrictive gluten-free diet, don’t let it get you down! We have you covered with delicious alternatives that will leave you coming back for more!


Sunday Brunch: Eggs Benedict



A classic American breakfast we love to share at our Sunday Brunches at Copper Canyon Grill Silver Spring is the one and only Eggs Benedict. Two halves of an English muffin, poached eggs, Canadian bacon, and Hollandaise sauce make for a savory fusion of flavor that will jump-start your day on the right foot!


Many who are new to the infamous Eggs Benedict always ask the question: What is Hollandaise sauce, exactly?  Well, it is a rich and buttery combination of egg yolk and liquid butter that is seasoned with lemon juice, salt, and either white or cayenne pepper! It has a mild but tangy flavor that adds just the right amount of kick to your eggs.

So now that you have the low-down, see you Sunday?
