Strawberry Gelato

Until just recently, when I made this strawberry gelato, I had only tasted gelato one time ~ while vacationing on the island of St. Maarten.  My son introduced me to it and I loved it.  In fact, I went back for seconds! A few weeks ago I was searching on the internet for a frozen […]

Freezing Corn for Year Round Eating

    Isn’t shucked corn a beautiful site? From mid August until mid September we always buy a lot of corn on the cob and eat it until we don’t think we can eat any more because it’s such a treat for that one month we can buy it from local farmers.  And from that […]

English Muffin Bread

Do you like English muffins? If you do, you’ll love this bread. If you don’t, you’ll love this bread. I happen to not really like English muffins as purchased from the grocery story.  Toasted, they’re OK, but not really delicious. But this bread… oh my! See all those little air pockets?  They were created by a […]

Frozen Chocolate-dipped Bananas

I first tried frozen chocolate-dipped bananas at Disneyland when I was about 14!  I had never heard of them before but I thought they were delicious.  I still remember how refreshing it was to eat a frozen banana on that hot summer day.  Then I didn’t have another one for about 20 years because it […]

Sesame Ginger Chicken

I used to never make Asian food because the recipes in my Asian cookbooks took at least a half day to prepare. But over the last few years I’ve collected recipes that can be whipped up in an hour or so, so now I make it all the time. This Sesame Ginger Chicken is crispy, […]

August has snuck up on us so quickly around here!  It seems like just last weekend we were celebrating the 4th! But we love August because it brings some exciting things like the beginning of school for some and of course, COLLEGE FOOTBALL.  :)  Yep.  We’re looking forward to college football at our house.  That’s […]

Summer Fruit Salad with Honey Lime Dressing

This is a simple summer fruit salad that’s light and refreshing and can be made with any fruit you like or have on hand.  We like it with all fresh fruit but sometimes throw in canned mandarin oranges like in the above photo.  It’s delicious with pineapple, strawberries, grapes, bananas, kiwi, peaches, blueberries, all berries, […]

Easy French Dressing ~ It's made from a few common kitchen ingredients and is 100 times better than bottled.

Easy French Salad Dressing

Although I don’t always like a sweet dressing on my salad, every once in a while I want a one that’s different from the usual salad dressings I use like this super delicious Homemade Ranch Dressing.  It might sound kind of weird, but I sometimes like French Salad Dressing on taco salad.  If you like French […]

Shredded Mexican Chicken [Cafe Rio Style]

  I LOVE Cafe Rio.  And Costa Vida.  And Chipotle. Each for different reasons. But truth be told… I’ve never had anything chicken at any of them because I love their sweet pork and I always order a sweet pork salad. So I guess it’s pretty funny that I’m posting a shredded chicken recipe and […]
