Cooking

  • Creating different meals using the same ingredients

     Do you sometimes feel like you’re stuck making the same recipes day after day or week after week? If you’re like me, you’d love to be able to create a number of different dishes using essentially the same ingredients. Why not explore the possibilities?

  • Flavorful and filling, empanadas have become quite popular

     

  • The hunt is over, but the hard-boiled eggs remain!

     The hunt is over, but the hard-boiled eggs remain!

    It’s a few days afterthe Easter holiday, and you still have a carton full of colorful hard-boiled eggs in the fridge. What should you do with them? Shell-encased hard-boiled eggs will stay fresh in the fridge for up to one week.

    Unless they sat out for a really long time, hidden too well, those leftover eggs need to be eaten. You might want to consider the following:

    1) Add chopped eggs to a green or spinach salad.

    2) Top crispy, buttered toast with sliced eggs.

  • Traditional Passover foods prepared with special care

    Passover (Pesach in Hebrew) is one of the most important Jewish festivals, celebrated in late March or early April. The eight-day observance commemorates the freedom and exodus of the Israelites (Jewish slaves) from Egypt during the reign of the Pharaoh Ramses II.

  • Pork chop meals for two includes saltimbocca, an Italian classic

     Our family has always eaten a lot of pork chops. I remember my wife’s mother serving them quite often when we were first married. The chops were thinner then, and almost always bone-in. She would pan-fry them so you could just pick them up and eat them in bunches.

     

    These days, though, we prefer thicker chops and although we prefer bone-in, it really just depends on what’s available at the market.

  • Chicken Katsu is a staple of Japanese cooking and easy to cook

     If you’re looking for some great recipes that will also let you practice healthy cooking, you really can’t go wrong with many Asian food recipes. They really aren’t difficult to cook and most of them are extremely healthy.

    There are so many different types of Asian food recipes, you’ll never get bored with any of them. The ingredients are all basically the same: lots of vegetables, meats and rice. The spices are basically where they differ.

  • Roasted corned beef will remind you a little bit of pastrami

     Roasted corned beef will remind you a little bit of pastrami

    With an Irish background, I remember eating many traditional Irish dishes, especially corned beef and cabbage, which we always had on St. Patrick’s Day. But we liked it so much, we ate it quite often throughout the year.

  • Green pepper soup tastes like stuffed peppers without all the work

     It’s a satisfying meal that warms you up on a chilly winter day. Soups are good for you and, best of all, they are easy to make. Now that winter is here, soup is the perfect way to warm up after coming in from the cold evening air.

    Whether you choose soup or chili, these winter comfort foods can include whatever ingredients you like. I prefer to make my soups in large batches, leaving plenty for tasty leftovers. Everyone knows soups taste better the second day, anyway.

  • Old-fashioned recipes just like Grandma used to make

     

     

     

    Years ago (if you can remember back that far) when you were a child, do you remember Grandma spending all day in the kitchen, cooking those scrumptious meals and desserts that only she could make the old-fashioned way?
