Do you know what Bulgogi is? It’s some kind of Korean beef stew magic from heaven. It’s insanely good, and quite possibly my new recipe for beef stew or roast beef. Not that I make those things all that often. Actually, I’ve only made roast beef once or twice in my life. It also reminds me of the richness of Boeuf Bourguignon, but let … Continue reading Bulgogi.
Hi friends. How are you doing during this utterly surreal time? Isn’t it strange and mildly comforting to know that we’re all in the same boat? I’ve been watching Instagram videos of Jamie Oliver, all the way across the pond in Merry Old England, and he is also stuck at home, no matter how amazing and rich and influential he is. He’s trying to be … Continue reading Bunker Bolognese.
Every Tuesday, my real estate brokerage has a 9:30 meeting, and I leave so incredibly fired up, and frankly, STARVING. I have started intermittent fasting during the weekdays, and if I get out of that meeting without breaking down and eating a donut, I really pat myself on the back. Well today, I came home with so much energy and excitement for my new real … Continue reading
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.
Over the Christmas break, I made my homemade Caesar Salad and my lovely sisters-in-law asked for the recipe (hi ladies!!!) I’m always so flattered when people ask for recipes, and honestly, that’s totally why I have this food blog ~ it’s a great way to share recipes with my family and friends. And to remind myself, too! I thought for sure I had my basic … Continue reading My Caesar Dressing…
HAPPY 2020, Y’ALL! I am so excited for this year! Or, I will be when I recover from the holidays. So much gluten and dairy and sugar and salt and travel and and and… My body is screaming at me. 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.
I love savory foods for breakfast. Preferably accompanied by a cinnamon roll. HA! This savory egg dish is really satisfying, with spicy Asian flavors, crunchy sesame seeds, and loaded with protein. SPICY SCRAMBLED EGGS AND TEMPEH. Ingredients: all you need are eggs, tempeh, toasted sesame oil, some other kind of oil or butter, sesame seeds, and your favorite spice mix. I’m using a wok these … Continue reading spicy scrambled eggs and tempeh.
