We get together a lot, and Larry makes the world’s greatest steaks. But once in awhile you need something different. This is a fun dish for lots of reasons, not the least of which is that you can use whatever veggies you like. I usually skewer the veggies separately from the meat.

I was recently watching Beat Bobby Flay (one of my favorite shows on Food Network), and I saw a Chef Fernando Ruiz beat Bobby with this unusual dish. I’ve lived In the Southwest since I was 5 years old, and both studied and taught (and eaten plenty of) Mexican cooking. I have NEVER heard of … More CHILIES EN NOGADA….I thought I knew them all! Something new and different…
Whenever anyone gets sick, has an operation, moves in or out, has a baby, gets mad at me, gets a good grade, does me a favor, oh well…..you get it. ANY occasion, I do what I do best. Make SOUP! People ask me a lot what my favorite things to cook are. And I … More HUNGARIAN MUSHROOM SOUP…. John’s favorite. And we aren’t even Hungarian!

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.

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!
