Thai Style Soup

How to Get Cheap Farmer’s Market Produce and Homemade Spaghetti Sauce

I don’t know about other Farmer’s Markets around the country, but ours is quite pricey. Don’t get me wrong, I totally understand why. Most of these farmers are not mass producing therefore they do not have the equipment to mass harvest. Not to mention their products are generally organic and taste so much better. My […]

Yesterday was a long day. By the end of the day, I had a deep craving for a luscious mango margarita. My only problem when I have these kind of cravings is that I HAVE to eat Mexican food with them, regardless of what has been cooking in the crock pot all day. Margaritas and […]

  I think my husband fell in love with me all over again over dinner tonight. I didn’t think it would be possible to woo him with food, but apparently I was wrong. After one bite of this sandwich he looked at me and after ten years said, “you’re a keeper”…well finally! This sandwich is […]

Shroom Burger

Shroom Burger

Yesterday I picked up these gorgeous oyster mushrooms at the farmer’s market from Socal Shrooms. I didn’t really know what to do with them because they were so beautiful. I didn’t want their flavor to be masked by a risotto, drowned out by a sauce, or hidden in a vegetable medley. I decided to fry […]

Marinated Flank Steak

It is quite difficult at dinner time to come up with new and delicious meals in my home. On one side you have my aspiring body builder husband who tries to consume at least 4000 (no that is not a typo) calories a day, and on the other side is me, who just mentions the […]
