Jambalaya!

Oh Baby! It was hot and spicy here this weekend as I made Val’s husband’s recipe for Jambalaya. Jambalaya originated in the Caribbean Islands. The Spanish culture mixed with the native foods created what is known as Jambalaya. Jambalaya is traditionally made in three parts, with meats and vegetables, and is completed by adding stock […]

Ginger Chicken Lettuce Wraps

My weekend was a slippery slope for eating healthy starting with Friday night. We watched our 5 year old grandson for most of the weekend and we ate like 5 year olds! Pizza, cheeseburgers, strawberry shortcake pancakes, ice cream… I thought chasing my grandson around would burn the calories but that was wishful thinking. By […]

Steak Salad Pommes Frites

Or Steak Salad with French fries! Ha! I was trying to get fancy on you to get your attention. Truth is – French fries gets anyone’s attention! Last week I was at lunch at our favorite restaurant with my daughters and we all ordered salads. Before the waitress left, my youngest daughter said, “Oh and […]

By 11:00 a.m. today – the day as I thought it would be was gone.  Everything I planned to do today was thrown out the window. My day disintegrated with too many e-mails, too long phone conversations, and too much laundry. And the snow didn’t help either – it prevented me from running away. When […]

casserole

Whoo! What a week this has been! I’m supposed to be slowing down preparing for my knee replacement surgery in a few weeks and life is escalating around me! I don’t mind as I seem to thrive on chaos. And when life hands you chaos – make a casserole! Casseroles offer comfort to the family […]

chicken picatta

Tonight we longed for something simple – flavorful but simple. It was a crazy weekend with a sleepover of 3 grandsons – all 5 years old! We had fun playing games, eating pizza and making banana splits. Now you can see why I craved simplicity. This recipe does the trick – chicken cutlets topped with […]

casserole2km

He won’t stop talking about it. I made this casserole several days ago and everyday since then – he still tells me how much he loved this casserole! Granted Hubby is a casserole lover but I’ve never heard him rant about it like this. I sent leftovers to his parents’ house and now they are […]

grilled

Did you ever wake up in the morning and have a taste for something and didn’t have a recipe? That’s how it was for me. I had a taste for a sweet but zesty grilled chicken kebab. Almost like the flavor of the samples they hand out in front of the Asian fast food restaurant […]

tacos

It’s been a busy day. The weather is absolutely gorgeous and I certainly didn’t want to be in the kitchen that long tonight. I’d rather be sitting on the deck with a glass of wine! Typically taco night is to be an easy night for cooking, right? The best laid plans….I decided to try a […]
