I’m home sick today, feeling like poo on a platter. A poo poo platter. Get it? Po Po Platter ~ poo poo platter? (Never too sick to pun) I never see the Po Po Platter on Chinese restaurant menus anymore. What was that anyway? Anyway, I can never just lay in bed and not be productive when I’m sick. Sometimes I get my best work done … Continue reading Crunchy Sesame Eggs.
My, my, my…it has been a minute! Hello, friends! I’ve missed you. I really haven’t had all that much to report. No yummy cooking, and definitely no healthy yummy cooking to speak of. But friends, that’s all about to change. I’ve been watching this amazing show on Netflix ~ Jamie Oliver’s “Quick and Easy” or “Five Ingredients” ~ or something like that. I can’t remember … Continue reading Chicken and Mushroom Pasta w/Broccoli.
If you love collard greens, keep reading. If you love kimchi, keep reading. If you think you don’t like either, you might need to try them together. I absolutely love both dishes, but I didn’t always. The first time I tried kimchi was on a plane to Seoul, South Korea. The most beautiful flight attendant I had ever seen, came up to me and said, “American meal, … Continue reading Collards and Kimchi.

Today, on January 1st of 2020, I’m going to relax and watch movies with the hub, venture out to the gym for a little cardio … Continue reading HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Yesterday it snowed all day long, and I was in absolute heaven. I love snow so much that I actually woke up depressed this morning, knowing the snow would be over for a while. The hub and I were basically snowed in because the hill we live on was, and still is, an ice rink. Fine by me! I really needed a break after a … Continue reading LOADED KALE SALAD: my healthy additions #1.

Oh oh oh….it’s Pho… Actually, it should be “Uh, uh, uh…it’s Pho”. Am I pronouncing that right? I’ve heard it sounds like “fuh” as in, “fuhhh-get about it”, or “FUnyons”. Right? Anyway, I love love LOVE this Vietnamese tricked out, flavor-packed, cure-what-ails-you, chicken-soup. If you make this healing broth from scratch, there are strange, frightening animal bones involved. I’m not afraid of any of that … Continue reading CHICKEN ZOODLE PHO.

And the one I’m going … Continue reading Vive la Buddha Bowl!
