Sometimes you just have to throw caution to the wind and try something. We love salsa, and we love HOT, so I went to the Mexican Ranch Market and bought 2 or 3 of EVERY chili they have. I don’t even know some of the names, but I know I had 10 little bags of … More SALSA….OR IS IT “HELLFIRE”?
I finally bit the bullet and decided to try some more lo carb recipes from things we like. Fried rice is one of my favorites! Its easy and my kids loved it when they were growing up. But rice is so high in carbs, and even though I haven’t had a lot of success with … More CAULIFLOWER “FRIED RICE”
I came late to the party with all the veggie/pasta concoctions in the last few years. Riced cauliflower was as far as I went. Never did want to try noodles made from zucchini, or beets, or carrots. It just didn’t seem appealing to me. So, because I believe that trying new things keeps you young … More ZUCCHINI NOODLE LASAGNA? NO WAY!
First, my apologies for my language….it’s not mine, it’s Michael Chiarello’s. I have used this recipe for at least 10 years. We love peppers, we love hot, and we love these with a nice meat dish. Chiarello serves them with a recipe he calls “Forever Roasted Pork”. This is one that cooks at least 6-8 … More STEAK HOUSE CHILI….AND DAMN HOT PEPPERS (language!)
My sweet friend Cassie (I call her Classy Cassie), sends me the most scrumptious recipes. I took special interest in this one because it reminds me of a recipe my high school best friend brought me in the 60’s. She called it Mustard Cream and poured over hamloaf. Cassie wrote me a history of this … More Mustard Custard…use so many ways!
I am so fascinated with food, and one of my favorite searches involves Jewish food and traditions. A few years ago I saw Jeffery Zacharian on the Kitchen and at the very end of the show he made this gorgeous platter that he described as a Jewish traditional “appetizer” platter for a Jewish Holiday. I … More THANKSGIVING JEWISH TRADITION…
There’s not much fun going on when your hubby has surgery to get a new knee……EXCEPT when people bring you stuff! Toni knew we are observing “lo-carb” lifestyle these days so she came up with this double whammy: ONE gram carbs and ONE gram sugar! AND, to make it just about perfect…..CHOCOLATE!!!! SALTY CHOCOLATE TREAT … More Cho……co……late! Good for what ails ya!
I know that’s an odd headline above, because I imagine most cooks already think Pork Loin is easy. But for some reason, my whole life has been an odd contest with me trying to learn to cook the “simple” things, while loving to perfect the complicated, high-skill dishes. Ask my husband how he had to … More PORK LOIN MADE EASY…
My daughter gave me the most yummy meat loaf recipe years ago, from an old (cute) friend, Pam Turner. I’ve never seen that girl without a smile on her face! And Larry REALLY smiled when he tried my lo carb version. So I will give you the original recipe, and then tell you the secret … More MEAT LOAF! But how the heck to I make it lo-carb???
