Chicken Khao Soi, a very simple soup made with a curry paste and chinese egg noodles.  The original recipe does not have cremini mushrooms, I added them because we thought it would be a Read the rest of this entry »

Sausage and White Bean Stew

February 3, 2013 | 3 Comments »

I was attratced to this recipe originally because of the white beans, which I happen to love!  This was quick, easy and really really good!  I did change it up some.  The original recipe called for chorizo, I wanted more of an italian flair so I used a tomato-basil sausage that my local grocery Lunardi’s makes (I think right there in the store).  As well whatever green you want, it doesn’t have to be Read the rest of this entry »

Glazed Chili Tofu with Fresh Ramen Noodles

November 4, 2012 | No Comments »

With the weather getting cooler, I have been searching for new soup pot recipes.  I found this recipe but changed it up with some left over goods that I had in the fridge, such as cabbage, mushrooms, and fresh bean sprouts.  It was pretty darn good.  I served it with Read the rest of this entry »

Hamburger Patties with a Cremini Mushroom Red Wine Reduction

August 26, 2012 | No Comments »

I remember growing up, my mother for a quick weeknight meal used to fry hamburger patties and serve it with canned peaches and cottage cheese.  I always enjoyed it.  My goal was to do the hamburger patties but create a little twist by spicing it up, and because we absolutely love mushrooms, make a cremini mushroom sauce to go over it.  Although I do love the cottage cheese as a side to hamburger patties, we opted to roast fingerling Read the rest of this entry »

Eggplant and Beef Stroganoff

August 5, 2012 | 2 Comments »

My freind Nancy presented me with eggplant and tomatoes from her wonderful garden!  She loves her garden and she loves to share the freshness that it produces.  Unfortunately I have not made very many eggplant dishes, so I was at a loss for a few days of what to do with it, until, I happen to see a recipe for eggplant stroganoff, perfect that was it.  I did add ground chuck, as the original recipe was meatless.  Thanks Joy for your input, we thought Read the rest of this entry »

Mu Shu Pork

July 22, 2012 | 2 Comments »

From the recipe archive, posted back in february.  Last night I made a Mu Shu chicken from a recipe that my husband found, it was good but no where near as good as this recipe.  I realized later it did not include eggs, that was the deal breaker for me, so please please enjoy!

I don’t do enough asian cooking so I thought I would give it a go to one of my favorite chinese dishes, mu shu pork.  I have to admit it did take some time to prep, but worth every minute.  We served it over brown rice with warmed Read the rest of this entry »

Chicken Piccata Pasta

July 8, 2012 | No Comments »

Creamy and lemony this dish was perfect with just french bread and butter!  Curious about where the word “Piccata” originated, I googled it.  According to one site it means tasty, savoury, spicy, piquant.  According to another site it is a Read the rest of this entry »

Vegi and Fruit Smoothie

June 16, 2012 | No Comments »

I make this every evening during the week for my breakfast, the next morning.  Not only is it filling, it’s very tasty!  The banana and frozen fruit naturally sweeten this smoothie so much that I am addicted.  It’s one of those things that just makes you Read the rest of this entry »

There were two restaurants that we ate at Read the rest of this entry »

Cucumber Potato Salad

May 20, 2012 | 3 Comments »

I served this cucumber potato salad on mothers day along with barbequed chicken and everyone went back for seconds.  The cucumber and fresh dill stood out giving this salad so much flavor.  You can certainly make this ahead of time and let it sit in Read the rest of this entry »
