Sichuan Red Chili Chicken

Some like it HOT!

Back in May we were in Austin to babysit the new grandson, Frankie and his brother, Thomas, while his parents went to a Derby party one night and a wedding the next night. It easy taking care of a two month old because he couldn’t crawl and get into stuff or get up and run all over the house with Gran tailing him to make sure he didn’t get hurt. All Frankie did was lay there and look cute while his big brother did all the other stuff.

One night we ordered Chinese and our […]

Beef Tenderloin Steaks with French Onion Sauce

IMG_3918

Not the prettiest picture but oh, so good!

If you’re thinking of cooking steaks any time soon and want something just a little different, try my beef tenderloin steaks with French Onion Sauce. The sauce smells like French onion soup while it’s cook. Top a toasted piece of French bread with your cooked steak and the sauce and you will be delighted with the surprise.

I did these steaks recently when friends came over. My steaks were on the small size (6 oz.) but by the time we added it to the bread and sauce it was almost more […]

Lemon Chicken with Red Pepper

Another chicken recipe!

How many more recipes can there possibly be for chicken? I would guess there are more ways to cook chicken than any other protein that we all eat.

We love lemon and chicken and to put these both together in a recipe inspired by Aspicyperspective.com made a delicious recipe after I tweaked it some. I wasn’t interested in doing her Paleo version so I used regular soy sauce and regular flour (although I did try some with the coconut flour). I also looked at some comments and decided to add in some five spice powder, and […]

Crunchy Napa Cabbage Salad

Slaw or Salad?

Slaw or salad? We’ve had that discussion before (or I’ve had with myself). I’ve always thought of cabbage as a slaw or coleslaw before but on the other hand I always put some finely shredded red cabbage into salads to add more color. This salad will make a great side dish for any summer gathering.

I came across this salad at aspicyperspective.com webpage when I was looking at her Lemon Chicken recipe I’ll be making in a couple of days. I’m not sure if I will use the coconut flour (I have it) or not. Recently […]

Lemon Parsley Rice

Is it rice or cauliflower?

Is it rice or cauliflower? That is the $64,000 question. Cauliflower rice is so popular right now. At Trader Joe’s you can even buy it already cut like rice. Now who would possibly buy it that way when you can grate it yourself and save a few pennies or nickels and I have a problem with buying things already prepared, how much trouble is it to grate anyway?

I didn’t think I would ever like saying I’m 60; and I sure don’t think I’m going to like saying I’m 70 come November. I’ve decided […]
