Chicken and Vegetable Spring Rolls

Update (2/19/15): I had previously listed ground chicken as the main protein in the spring rolls. I love it for convenience sake but have found that it creates a filling that is too wet and therefore, more likely to tear the spring roll wrappers. Hence, I’ve replaced it with diced chicken breast. Also, there will be […]

Sausage and Chestnut Dressing

Now, my quest for a great dressing/stuffing took longer than my search for the perfect turkey recipe, but I think I might finally have it. :D After many trials in the past years, I’ve discovered that I don’t really like strong-tasting herbs such as sage or rosemary or strong spices such as the ever-popular poultry seasoning in […]

Romaine with Feta Salad

You know that giant bag of romaine lettuce that you get from Costco, the one you’re not sure if you would be able to finish. Well, here’s a super-easy and tasty salad that you can make any day of the week and in no time at all, you’ll wonder what happened to all the romaine. :D Use however […]

Broccoli Delight

The heat tapered down quite a bit over the weekend and we’ve been getting some much needed rain (yay!) but I’m pretty sure summer weather is not over yet. So, I would like to share a delicious salad recipe that I thought is just a perfect side dish to serve on these hot summer days. I first tasted and […]

Love it! Source: McCormick ¼ cup unsalted butter, softened ¼ […]

Our Easter Meal

Last week was a whirlwind…my sis, brother-in-law, and niece came for a visit and time just flew by. We had a wonderful time and not surprisingly, the food tasted even better with great company. Here’s what we had for our Easter meal – ham, scalloped potatoes, steamed peas, and homemade bread. :D

Macaroni Salad and Grilled Soy Sauce Pork

With the warmer weather, my chives have been growing rather quickly and abundantly in my garden. That and the fact that we’ve been getting May weather in March, I figure it’s time to make our much-loved, favorite macaroni salad. I told Keith, if there’s only one summer dish I could make in the Summer, this would be it! I first […]

Broiled Salmon and Couscous

Took Alex bowling for the very first time this afternoon. Actually, it was my first time too and here’s one new thing I learned about my husband of almost 11 years – Keith knows how to bowl and had in fact, bowled quite a bit back in his middle school days…and he claims daily he has […]
