Sweet Corn Risotto with Goat Cheese

Michigan corn!

On a recent, very long, road trip (3,500 miles) to see our son and family in Chicago I bought corn.

So the trip started from Texas and stopping in Missouri for a few days and Chicago for a few days we made our way north around the lake. Did you know that it is 1,000 miles around Lake Michigan?

We had to deal with 4 hours of rain leaving Texas, then another 4 hours the day we left Missouri and guess what, another 4 hours of rain driving up the Wisconsin side of the lake before getting […]

Forbidden Bowl

Not forbidden anymore!

A few weeks ago I was in Austin staying with my daughter and we had lunch (and shopped) one day during her lunch break. There’s nothing more fun than lunching with a daughter (or son) and shopping.

We had lunch at the Flower Child Restaurant which is in the Domaine in Austin. They have quite a few locations in AZ, CA, GA, MD, NV, TX, and CO; so if there is one in your area you have to try this dish; you will love it.

FC makes everything from scratch and they cover most diets like […]

Jalapeño Gravy with Chicken Fried Pork Tenderloin

Jalalpeno Gravy, love at first bite.

On the way to Big Bend National Park back in the Spring we stopped at the Holland Hotel in Alpine, Tx one night and I had chicken fried wild boar with a jalapeño gravy. After arriving in Big Bend we had chicken fried something again. More chicken fried anything than I had eaten in a year. The jalapeño gravy was the best part of the dish and was worth every bite because I knew I’d be making it once we returned home.

So when I called this post Jalapeño Gravy WITH Chicken Fried […]

Chicken Fried Rice with Vegetables

An easy dish to make with your leftovers.

Recently when our son Paul and his family were visiting we went to our favorite sushi restaurant and had dinner at the hibachi tables. Milo and Donovan (2 of our 6 grandsons) had never had rice thrown at their faces, watched a volcano of onion rings shoot flames out the top or see the chef twirl knives around.

It was a fun night and had me wanting to put fried rice on my menu for the week.

I guess my introduction into Chinese food would be eating chicken chow mein at […]

Orange Chicken with Veggies

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 […]
