all wrapped up

To appropriately prepare this meal…you need to plan 4 hours in advance for marinating the meat   It’s the night before the two-day holiday cooking marathon. I didn’t want to go out to eat tonight but wanted something tasty and easy to make.   Fajita night!   I found this recipe a few weeks ago […]

angel peeps

I’m totally obsessed with Peeps. My friends and family think I’m crazy but this past week I saw a recipe in on Butrcreamblondi’s blog about making peeps from scratch. Her Peeps are beautiful and glamorous with pink disco dust! I suddenly felt this deep need to make peeps. I had to do it! I carved […]

Sugar Snap Pea Quinoa Salad

As promised, here’s the wonderful side salad/dish that I made to go with last night’s halibut. It’s an easy to make spring dish that would go so easily with any entree.  The original recipe came from Food and Wine but I switched it up a bit….of course. Quinoa is my new favorite grain. It’s so […]

Just for the Halibut

I’m not a big fish eater. In fact, I’m a very picky fish eater…let alone cooking it. I don’t like the skin. I don’t like bones. I don’t like the smell of fish…. So what’s one to do? Halibut. Just for the halibut. (okay, okay, I’ll stop with the corny jokes starting now) I do […]

cabbageround

This is a family recipe. Easy to make and makes a colorful dish to pork chops…in my favorite color – PURPLE! Get yourself a nice little purple head of cabbage. You’ll need 4 cups of chopped cabbage. In a skillet, heat 1 tbsp. vegetable oil; 2 tbsp. vinegar (I use white, red or cider depending […]

Beef, Mushroom and Barley Soup

This winter is like a bad boyfriend who just won’t leave you alone. There I got it out of my system. I want to be grilling again! This week’s snowfall called for a hearty pot of soup. We’ve been dealing with aging parents issues this week and I thought a good old pot of beef, […]

Asian Baked Pork Chops

Our freezer is busting with boneless pork loin chops because of a special at our local grocery store. I’ve been playing with pork recipes all month. This is my favorite! One of my favorite ways to prepare boneless pork chops is to bread and bake them. Over the years I have had good experiences and […]

Today is my Mother-in-law’s 88th birthday. We didn’t know what to get her. What better present to a senior but the gift of food. This is her favorite dish. Happy Birthday Inez! Growing up, my Mother would always have the big family meal on Sunday. It was usually a roast, stuffed cabbages or stuffed peppers.  […]

Shrimp Pasta

I have to admit that I have a love/hate relationship with shrimp. I love to eat them but I hate to clean them…it grosses me out. Okay, now that you have full disclosure – I hate cleaning shrimp. I wear rubber gloves. Sometimes I close my eyes. I even have a little red shrimp cleaning […]

Stir Crazy!

I have been really getting into stir frys these days. They are such an easy way to be creative with cooking! Color, texture, flavor… Start with a basic recipe and add your own flair. That’s what I did last night. I started with a basic recipe from the March issue of Cooking Light. The first […]
