How To Make a Healthy Salad Taste Good

I have a pretty long list of dishes to take to social events.  I can pretty much pull a recipe from my butt (as my Mom might say growing up, but more eloquently written, repertoire) according to request.  We have a friend in town on a vacation from the Airforce.  She and her fiancé won a… Read More How To Make a Healthy Salad Taste Good

Funny Story About Pho

Pronounced “fuh”.  Fuhnny, huh?  The first time I ever had it, I wanted to try the full deal.  No Americanizing for me, please.  I want to experience the taste of the Vietnamese!  So, when “Pho” opened on the beach (no need to question what’s being served here), I wanted to order the authentic pho with… Read More Funny Story About Pho

Breakfast Parfaits

Breakfast is a hard meal for me.  Not everyone will eat cereal, you know, the easy breakfast.  One kid says the sweeter the better, hardly able to contain her excitement if anything I make contains chocolate, syrup, honey or any other form of sugar.  This kid will choke down canned asparagus (triple gross) if bribed… Read More Breakfast Parfaits

Steaks and Shambles

So, is it “mih-nuh-STRO-nee”or “mini-strohn”?

Debatable.  That’s what I’m making for dinner.  Another one-pot-wonder.  I’m aaaaall about a complete meal in one dish when I’m making dinner for the little monsters. I want protein, which means meat or meat substitute, such as tofu, eggs, or legumes, at least 2 carbs per serving and preferably one to two vegetable servings.  Usually… Read More So, is it “mih-nuh-STRO-nee”or “mini-strohn”?

A Day in Philly

A lesson on America’s history.  A view of the liberty bell and a tour of Independence Hall.  I guess the tour guide’s mustache muffled his voice because I didn’t hear a word! Coupled with the chasing around of the two youngest monsters trying to stuff liberty bell cards down the antique vents, it was impossible… Read More A Day in Philly

Dinner for Three

My three older step-children have gone to their grandmother’s for the week which means meal-planning transitions from the thankless efforts of pleasing children set in their ways to a more diversified cuisine.  Last night was a meal of shrimp Po’boys with sliced avocado, seasoned plantain chips and a swiss chard salad with snap peas and… Read More Dinner for Three
