This Pad Thai recipe is an adaptation of a recipe from a playgroup friend from Austin.  Jam has created a fabulous restaurant and Thai Market in Austin called Thai Fresh, if you’re in the area, I highly recommend you check it out.  Cory and I both love Pad Thai, so I decided to give this […]

This Seared Pork Recipe came as part of the recipe suggestions from Williams-Sonoma in the Easy and Elegant Dinner Party I hosted for LE’s Fifth Birthday.  I was floored by how much I liked it.  The flavors were really bight and summery, but not overpowering at all.  We served it with my Herb Sauce for […]

Awhile back my dear friend Emily sent me an email saying, “Do you have any recipes that call for a massive amount of turkey broth?  I am not kidding, I have a TON.”  Which was hilarious and awesome.  Anyway, she brought me 2 frozen quarts to our eggnog taste off.  (Yes the taste off was super fun.  […]

I write frequently about really involved recipes as the cooking *process* is the part in which I’m really interested.  That said, I do have a few meals I’ve acquired over time that are super fast and easy, as well as really yummy.  I learned this one from my mother (thanks Mommy!), and I think it’s […]

Turkey Chili is new to my repertoire this year, but it has been extremely well received by both family and guests.  I like that this one serves equally well as leftovers both in taste and presentation.  Plus the bonus of it being a one pan, one dish meal. Chili, like tortilla soup, seems to be […]

Friends, I’ve been lost in a book. Rather a series.  Rather several series, but usually, I can suck myself out, back to the real world as I know it.  These last few days have been like childhood, only instead of me gasping exasperated at one of my sisters lost in Gone With the Wind, or […]

So the thing about Asian food, and I’m sure this is one of those foot-in-the-mouth remarks, is back when I had gestational diabetes, I couldn’t pass my blood sugar after a meal at an Asain restaurant to save my life.  Even when I thought I was making good choices.  Now – the same can probably […]

Lobster Bisque

So it’s a bit non- traditional, but we ate our lobster bisque accompanied by grilled turkey and cheese sandwiches.  Loving husband and I had a miscommunication and he ate my reserved lobster meat before I could add it to the bisque.  I can’t get upset, though, since that means A) he loved the prepared lobster […]
