FIVE-SPICE CHICKEN WINGS

FIVE-SPICE CHICKEN WINGS

I felt like I’ve lost the last week.  I’ve been sick and both of my sons have been sick.  You know how it goes- the preschooler brings homes a virus and it makes its way through the family.   We are all better now but all the things that I’ve had planned for the past week has been tossed to the side and I’m trying to play catch up this week.  First up are these five-spice chicken wings that I was...Read more …
SWEET AND SOUR RIB TIPS

SWEET AND SOUR RIB TIPS

Rib tips have a fond place in my heart that stems from living in New York City during my teens and early 20s.    I had the nearest Chinese restaurant on speed dial.  I ordered so often that they knew who I was and what I wanted.  They would answer the phone by saying my order then promptly hang up; if I wanted to try something different, I would have to call back to change my order.  Pork fried rice with...Read more …

APPLE CHEDDAR PORK LOIN ROAST

This is part of a sponsored collaboration with National Pork Board.  However, all opinions expressed are my own. It’s the most wonderful time of the year – at least that’s how I feel as soon as the chilly temperatures start to roll in and the trees begin to shed their leaves.  The cooler weather signifies the beginning of the holiday season and nothing makes me more excited than the thought of all things festive.   Being a self proclaimed foodie means...Read more …

THE BEST TURKEY MEATLOAF

THE BEST TURKEY MEATLOAF

The name meatloaf is anything but exciting and leaves a lot to be desired and truth be told, I’ve had quite a few bad meatloaves in my lifetime.  You know – the dense, dry, compact meat product that resembles a brick more than something edible.  Well my meatloaf is anything but the aforementioned; it’s is moist, flavorful and packed with vegetables.  I add a medley of vegetables for 2 reasons, the first reason being that my son avoids eating vegetables,...Read more …
