Santa Maria-Style Tri Tip with Salsa

IMG_5956

Just in time for your Labor Day cookout.

Have you ever come across a beef tri-tip in the market and didn’t know what to do with it? I have to admit I don’t think I have ever heard of it (or don’t remember) until last year and my son, Scott who lives in Chicago mentioned buying one and after seeing how juicy and delicious his looked I was then on the lookout for that particular cut of meat.

Then back at Easter, son, Paul cooked one for a house full of Sunday brunch guest. He served his as an […]

Egg Roll in a Bowl

IMG_6531

A lot less work than making egg rolls.

Still watching those hurricane (Harvey) rains come in and it’s still hot here in Texas, of course, and not that I look for easier things to make, but this is a super quick dish to throw together once you get everything chopped and if you have a mandolin it will save you so much time.

My twin sister and I have been making egg rolls for years. We make bunches of them and freeze so when we are ready to make some good Asian food, the egg rolls are awaiting in […]

Healthy ingredients stuffed into mushroom.

Recently we went to Chicago to visit our son and his family. Two birthday cakes and lots of good food later I still lost three pounds after returning from being gone for nine days.

One night we went to a great restaurant called E + O Food and Drink (Earth and Ocean) and my husband had this great pork pata (shank) recipe that had a pate sauce. I may be trying that sometime this fall or winter when the weather fits the dish here in Texas.

We had very nice cool days while there […]

Want a quick summer lunch or dinner?

Do you want something cool for dinner on a hot summer night?

I cook all the time it seems like whether it is summer, fall, winter or spring. Soups are not as appealing in the summer months as the other three seasons and I don’t like eating a lot of cold foods in the cooler months when all you want is some good comfort food. But, when it is 100° outside with the “feels like” temperature even higher than that I do occasionally go […]

Tuna Tartare Nachos

Delicious, down to the last bite!

On our way to our grand-nephews wedding in Alabama back in June we decided to break up the almost 800 mile drive by spending the night in Meridian, Mississippi. As usually, I’m online searching for a restaurant that we want to try and this little gem of a restaurant caught my attention — Harvest Grill. It has a relaxed, casual feel and an inventive menu, just our type of place.

The restaurant was having some sort of brew event on the […]
