Something Fishy Going on…

There are rules – Never run with scissors,,,, Look both ways before crossing the street… Never burn bridges with a former employer… Don’t stick your finger in the electrical outlet… Never.. Ever cook cheese with fish…. … And while with most of those there is some bit of common sense going on, it’s that bit […]

Six, the Easy Way ~ Vegetable Tamales

Mexican Restaurants – Whether it’s the strength of the margaritas, the freshness of their chips, the scoville scale of their salsa, or just how “authentic” it all is; everyone has their own way of judging a good one. Me? I look at two things. 1). Chili Rellenos : Is it a charred poblano pepper? Does it have a […]

Simple Dinner Sunday ~ Chicken & Rice

Bonus at the market the other day…. tiny chickens. I’m not talking game hens (which can run upwards of $8), I’m talking itty bitty one pound fryers…. for a buck. I grabbed a handful (six) tossed them  in the cart, and sang a little song all the way to checkout. ♫ ♬ Tiny chickens … in the […]

Don’t get excited… there are no invites – and the peppers just barely fill a mason jar. It’s a little ritual. The plants are uprooted and dug […]

While ribs come from ..well, the rib-ish  back and belly areas – Country Style ribs are actually from the shoulder roast (also known as a Boston Butt) area of the pig. And the little bits of bone?
