Pepperoncini Pork Roast

Cute little wrinkled peppers partner with pork butt.

So, even though your name probably isn’t Peter and you haven’t just picked a peck of pickled peppers you don’t know what to do with, keep reading below and I will tell you what to do with the ones you will buy from the market.

I’m sure everyone has had pulled pork. We grew up eating pulled pork bar-b-q and when we first moved to Texas we never saw it on menus — mostly brisket and sausages. Now we see pull pork everywhere.

Have you ever had pepperoncini pork roast? So […]

Shrimp Salad on Puffed Pastry Bread

Don’t you love, crisp, thin, crunchy things?

Ya know how you get an idea stuck in your head and can’t stop thinking about it? Well, I do that all the time. Five or six years ago I was watching one of Giada’s cooking show and she made this turkey sandwich with crisp pieces of puffed pastry. The puffed pastry wasn’t baked the normal way where it gets about two inches high (I am not a fan) but was sandwiched between two baking sheets lined with parchment paper and baked until crisp and brown.

I started thinking about doing this […]

Walk This Way! Food Tours

FOOD — One of my favorite things to do on vacation.

Food is so much a part of our lives. You can’t get away from it. Not even on vacation. I’ve said before that I usually research the area we are visiting and find restaurants we may want to visit while there. I’d rather do that than get some place and when you are ready to eat you just go to whatever is close, missing some great local favorites.

When we travel to a city that is known for good food (or some kind of cooking class) we do […]

Thai Sweet Chili Sauce

Some like it hot!

In the past when I have purchased Thai Sweet Chili Sauce I would buy 2-3 bottles at a time because one time the store was out and I had to go to another brand and it wasn’t good. I’ve seen several sweet chili sauce recipes and after looking at the ingredients on my favorite brand, I decided to make my own.

I’ve used this on my egg rolls, dumplings, I’ve added ketchup to it for a cocktail sauce for shrimp, I’ve brushed it on my husband’s grilled chicken wings and the good thing is I […]

Forbidden Black Rice and Mushrooms

Harvey’s gone and I’m ready to cook again.

We survived the black clouds and rainy days of Harvey and I have to say I wasn’t cooking much during those five days either. Lookin but not cookin.

The stores were crazy for days and have calmed down now and back to normal. Even during the busiest days of trying to grab a gallon of milk or bread or chips, I got in and out of the store in record time; sometimes settling for Half & Half instead of milk and taking the only lone loaf of bread on the shelves […]
