Orange Chicken with Veggies

IMG_8803

Beautiful chicken dish.

I love cooking and eating Asian foods and one of my New Year’s resolutions was to cook it more often.

My favorite dinner party would be to make my homemade egg rolls, maybe some type of dumping with dipping sauces for an appetizer and then a small bowl of my Egg Flower Soup, followed by some Teriyaki Flank Steak, Fried Rice (or lo mein) and a Bitter Greens Salad with Yuzu Dressing Oh, and of course to go with the main dish, my Shrimp Foo Yung.

I’ve never tried any Asian desserts I have liked that […]

Beef Hash and Eggs

Put an egg on it!

Did you grow up eating hash (not that kind)? I remember having it once or twice as a kid but it wasn’t something on our weekly menu. I remember working with a girl decades ago (that’s a long time) and remember her telling me she cooked the same thing each week. Meatloaf for Monday night supper, chicken for Tuesday, maybe burgers for example for Wednesday and she would repeat the meals the next week.

I don’t repeat meals often and I have this blog to thank for that because I’m always trying to come […]

In the case of this recipe I only made one change or maybe two. I added sugar snap peas which I tninkadd a needed crunch factor to the recipe and also some color to lighten the dish up. I did also add some soy (or […]

New Years Resolutions

Keeping those resolutions so far?

So, we are into our second month of the new year. Did you make any resolutions and have you been able to keep them?

Our new years day always starts with either pork belly (or hog jowl), black eyed peas (of course), cabbage, and cornbread. There is hardly ever any deviation from this menu. I added some pico this year to go with my black eyed peas but that was only because I hadn’t made any chow chow in a couple of years and didn’t have even a jar tucked away in my pantry.

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 […]
