Company for dinner…

This phrase both excites and frightens me. How can that possibly be true? Simple, I love hosting but I have a hard time deciding on what to make and serve. There are so many simple dishes to make but then who wants to go the easy way? Not me! I am a glutton for punishment, … Continue reading

My 2012 Garden

My 2012 Garden

I finally went out and bought seeds and plants. Monday I was able to get most everything in before a nice rain fell saving me from having to water. And it’s been raining a bit daily so I haven’t had to worry about that part of gardening, so far. Here is what I put in: … Continue reading

Gardening

This year I am putting in a raised bed garden. Last year I had every intention of putting one in but it never materialized. It was probably a good thing since our weather in NE Ohio was not all that good last year. It was a very rainy year and the crops were not the … Continue reading

Fried Rice

Fried Rice

Once again I have a recipe that isn’t Italian based. Some purists might go so far as to say fried rice is not truly a Chinese food either. I actually think it’s Chinese-American cooking.

Coming to terms with my food snobbery…
