Chicken Tetrazzini

Chicken Tetrazzini, Mema’s way.

Mema was my husband’s mother (and Mema to grandkids and great grandkids) and all of us always had our favorite things we wanted her to make for us for holidays/birthdays/special occasions.

As a kid, my husband would beg for his “own” date nut roll when his mom was making them to give to friends at Christmas. My kids always liked her chex mix and there were always cans of the mix ready when we went to visit.

I remember going to GA’s house for dinner one night when we were dating back in high school […]

Key Lime Shrimp with Trottole Pasta

Good and bad from Poppycocks…

So, the bad I will get out of the way first. We had dinner one night at Poppycocks in Traverse City, MI and my husband had the worst meal ever. It was cold, the plating didn’t make sense, vegetables looked raw and even after sending it back it still wasn’t good or even hot. In almost 50 years of marriage I don’t think he has sent anything back. The fish had no color and looked steamed and who puts a big chunk of cold tomato under a cooked piece of fish.

Now to the […]

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 […]
