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 […]

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 […]

Thai Shrimp and Eggplant Stir-Fry

Thai food anyone?

A lot of recipes I do come from things I’ve eaten at restaurants and have tried to recreate, some recipe are things I have cooked over years of being married and some are recipes I try of other peoples. Usually I’m tweaking with things I want to change in the recipe.

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 […]
