Used to be one of my favorite things to do on a Sunday was head to Chinatown for dim sum. When Matthew was two we tried taking him. The only thing he…Continue

Sometimes our assumptions leave others confused… like last week when I used Sriracha sauce in a recipe and assumed everyone was familiar with the spicy condiment.
Wrong… and Mama's sorry for being so foodie presumptuous. How…Continue

My Jersey-born-Italian brother-in-law Neal will attest … I am not Italian (not that you could tell, what with me being a six foot blonde).
But I’ve got a few Italian-inspired dishes in my repertoire that your grandmother from the Old Country might not love, but our motley crew seem to like well enough.
Like this spicy-basily-delicious …Continue
In honor of the Chinese New Year, which commenced on February 10, I whipped up one of my favorite Chinese dishes: General…Continue

We have a habit of buying ripe avocados and forgetting about them.
It’s a bummer.
Because everyone in the house loves guacamole.
And a really ripe avocado is better on a sandwich than any mayo I’ve ever tasted.
It’s good on salads.
It’s good as a snack, just scooped out by the spoonful.
And we just let them go to the compost bin.
Except when we…Continue

An “Anytime Dish” is great… especially when you can pull it together fast.
Throw an egg on it and it’s breakfast. Add some leftover meat and it’s lunch or dinner. Leave the meat out, add some beans and it's…Continue

Last night we celebrated my husband’s birthday with one of his favorite dishes… Seafood pasta.
I’ll admit that I’m not a huge fan of seafood or pasta, but…Continue

If my true love gave me Two Turtle Doves, I'd keep them as pets. I don’t know if I’d be able to cook them up… Mama’s not particularly fond of recipes featuring little birds (pigeons, quails, etc.).
However, I love Dove® chocolate, so this little romantic recipe will fit nicely into the…Continue

I have been making this easy chicken breast recipe for years. I like the homemade taste of the barbecue sauce and the fact that because it is from scratch, I am cutting out preservatives involved in using bottled barbecue sauce. It has a tangy flavor, but is not terribly hot. For more recipes, visit: http://homecookedgourmet.blogspot.com/

What a great weekend in sports!
What’s your pleasure? Play-off baseball…check! College football, with heated rivalries like Texas vs. OU? Step right up! (Though, being from Texas, Mama’s still smarting a bit from that one). NFL football upsets that nobody saw coming? (Heck, even Tim Tebow completed a pass.) You got it! …
And here’s the best part…it’s only going to get…Continue

What baby doesn't like pasta? And what baby doesn't like Bolognese sauce?! The list of ingredients in this recipe might seem a bit long but they should already be staples in your pantry (so there is no need to rush off to the grocery store if you want to prepare this sauce in a hurry!).
The only thing you might not have is San Marzano tomatoes...you could use any diced canned tomato but I prefer San Marzano. They are so much sweeter and tastier than other canned tomatoes. Try them for…Continue
Hubby says I have a boyfriend. In fact, according to him, I'm quite the strumpet. Take, for instance, Antonio Banderas. All it takes is for Zorro to come on and he's telling Dudette all about my boyfriend with a mask.
Nathan Fillion anyone? I never miss…

As a young(er) person, patience was not my strong suit. I was an easy-going person...for the most part, but touch on one of my few pet peeves and my fuse was non-existent. My bestest friend during college years knew that. She was chronically late and I was (still…Continue

This Spaghetti Sauce is something everyone loves. It is on the thick and sweet side.
I use it for Spaghetti, Stuffed Shells, and dipping just about anything into!
Use it for meatball hoagies, dipping bread sticks into or how about just meatballs and sauce!
I make more than one batch of this recipe and freeze the rest.
So much better than jar sauce and is extremely easy to make.
Sweet Victory Spaghetti Sauce…Continue
