When we were younger my mother was a very good cook. She was ‘self taught’ and read a lot of magazines about food. In the 70’s grocery stores in rural Pennsylvania didn’t have big ethnic sections, you had soy sauce and not a whole lot more. Today there is so much more to choose from. Well, I’ve remade this childhood favorite with a few added ingredients. Continue reading
What’s for dinner tonight? On today’s menu is an Asian-styled pulled pork…seasoned with ginger and garlic then braised for a few hours in a savory hoisin-soy sauce broth…tender, pull-apart, delicious…served over rice with a side salad and you’ve got a tasty meal… Continue reading
When my Hubby and I have date night, we often go to places where we can order a good appetizer and a drink. Well, we went out this week and ordered one of our favorites only to find out they were out of tuna. That wasn’t going to stop me from wanting it, so the next day I decided to recreate this dish at home and made it for our lunch. My excellent Hubby said mine was better than the one at the restaurant…Oops! I hope he still takes me out for it, I like dressing up!
I like to eat Turkey Burgers, but they need a little help with moisture and flavor. This summer I’m going to experiment with ground turkey so here we go…this combo had the perfect amount of spice, salt & sweet with a lovely glaze that forms as you cook it. The Broccoli Wasabi Slaw was quick, healthy and delicious! Continue reading
I have to admit that three years ago I had NO idea what Pho was. Not until I took my son to Philadelphia for his 20th birthday did I find out. My son, (now 23) loves all things Asian and insisted we find Pho while we were in the city. I’m game to try practically anything, so we researched to find the best in the city! That was all it took to turn me onto probably the best broth I’ve ever had. Well, here at home if you want Pho, you’re going to have to make it….and so I did! Continue reading
You don’t have to go out to have a great noodle bowl…You can have one right at home. Asian inspired flavors are a favorite in the summer for me and rice noodles are great hot or cold. I grind my own pork because I like it really fresh, but unseasoned pork is fine to use too… Continue reading
I love pork tenderloin. It’s easy to cook, lean for your waist and tender when cooked the perfect medium. With time to marinade it can take on tons of flavor. Today we had Asian infused pork tenderloin with white rice and a simple salad. January is the month after all to begin to shed those unwanted Christmas pounds and this pork is sure to satisfy… Continue reading
This is a quick dish and a favorite at our house. It is both Sweet and Savory. My husband is not a fan of spicy, but if your family likes heat, add 1/4 tsp of red pepper flakes. I just hit my plate with a dash of sriracha sauce at the end. If you love leftovers, forget it on this dish…there are never any left. Continue reading
