What’s In This Stir-Fry? You’ll Never Guess!

February 5, 2020

Here’s a recent dinner I made. Looks pretty good, doesn’t it?

It was easy to make, with three basic components: veggies, meat, and rice. But that’s technically a lie, because the meat wasn’t meat, and the rice wasn’t rice! Read the rest of this entry »


One Quiche is Nice, But Two Quiches are Divine

January 8, 2020

I had the opportunity to make brunch the other day, and I immediately thought of quiche. But I couldn’t decide what kind of quiche to make… so I upped the ante, and made two quiches. TWO FREAKIN’ QUICHES!

December 15, 2019

September 26, 2019

My New Favorite Way To Cook Fish – You’ll Want To Do This All Summer Long!

May 28, 2019

Check this my dinner tonight: healthy, gorgeous, and best of all, delicious.

The salad is a salad kit from the store. And there’s some avocado in the upper left. But don’t focus on that stuff… focus on the fish. That’s a piece of cedar plank smoked salmon, and you’ll never want to cook salmon any other way. Read the rest of this entry »
