Five-Spice Beef Stir-Fry

Monday, March 7, 2011

36 Comments

There was a cooking program that I used to love called Simply Magic. It is an Australian cooking show presented by Kylie Kwong and it features Chinese food.  Her recipes are healthy, made with fresh ingredients, and they are attainable in a home kitchen.  Needless to say… I adore her.  It was while watching her […]

Texas Cottage Pie

It would be fair to say we are a beef eating family. So, when Foodbuzz sent me an email about an opportunity to pair up with the Texas Beef Council* to share some fun recipes featuring lean beef I found it very hard to say no.  With that said, over the next few weeks I […]

Over the weekend I went to Food Blog South, a celebration of Southern food and Southern bloggers. This first time conference was, overall, a wonderful experience and I highly recommend those interested in the food culture of the South to consider attending their next event.  Our lunch during the conference was a favorite of mine […]

Jalapeno Cheddar Pigs in Blankets

Ok, sometimes you need things … I am serious when I say need. A few days ago I was discussing pigs in blankets with some friends on the Twitter.  It became apparent to me that, despite our love of the finer things, a good old-fashioned pig in a blanket could reduce us to children.  Happy, […]

The end of the year is rapidly approaching, and it is time to plan those New Years Eve parties! This year, like every year, I will spend the evening with my family before returning home to ring in the new year with my husband and dogs.  It is our little tradition.  My mom serves the […]

Chorizo Dip

I find when guests come to visit that a good dip can make the evening. I’m not sure what it is exactly about dip that is so enticing, but I do know that a good dip recipe, or two, can be a life saver.  Perhaps it is the communal aspect of dips, the fact that […]

Cornbread Topped Turkey and Green Chile Casserole

The day after Thanksgiving I tend to bag up some of my left-over turkey and freeze it. I love knowing that I have, in my freezer, the means to make any number of easy weeknight meals.  From pot pies to tetrazzini, frozen turkey meat is a good thing to have on hand.  This year I […]

Turkey and Mushroom Soup

One of my favorite things about Thanksgiving is the left-overs. With as much as we cook it’s never a surprise that we can’t eat it all, which is fine by me.  I love a breakfast of cornbread stuffing and turkey before I start putting up my Christmas decorations.  Usually we have so much left over […]

Bacon Dressed Green Beans

I have the secret for making EVERY vegetable, as long as you are a carnivore, taste better. It is not a very well kept secret, since EVERYONE knows about bacon.  This recipe started out as green bean bundles from a cookbook I borrowed from my mother.  The beans were blanched then slow roasted which left […]
