King Ranch Pasta Recipe

King Ranch Pasta

We have probably all heard of King Ranch Casserole. At my restaurant, I use to take leftover chicken tortilla soup and turn it into King Ranch for lunch specials. What I never did was turn it into this King Ranch Pasta. The other day I really wanted to come up […]

Chicken Lo Mein Recipe

Chicken Lo Mein

Make a memory, making this Chicken Lo Mein. So the other night, I stayed with my daughter Raychel. She decided that she wanted us to make a lo mein meal. We had a blast putting everything together and getting it on the table. I enjoyed the mother-daughter evening making this […]

Pork Stew Recipe

Pork Stew

Call me frugal! I love taking leftover food and making a totally different meal.  When I make pork loin (they come in two’s) I always have one leftover.  Instead of having the same meal the next day, I took it and made this amazing Pork Stew.  It was so easy […]

Homemade Chili Recipe

Homemade Chili Recipe

I love my homemade chili recipe. The flavors come together in the perfect blend.  You will always hear me say that I never want to taste something and know immediately what a certain flavor is.  I want my food to delight not overpower the senses.  I think my Homemade Chili […]

Chicken Florentine Recipe

1954 Chicken Florentine

I love taking old recipes and revising them for today.  For instance, this 1954 Chicken Florentine recipe had a jigger as a measurement.  I had to educate myself to edit this one, and I was extremely pleased with the results.  The chicken turned out moist, and the sauce was perfect.  […]

One of the things I want to get better at is cooking Chinese style food.  This recipe for Sesame Chicken is one of the first I have come up with, and I must say it is a keeper.  I started researching how to make it and, through trial and error, […]

Easy Alfredo Sauce Recipe

Easy Alfredo Sauce

My daughter pointed out to me the other day that I had not posted the easiest recipe I make. Well, I decided that I need to rectify that as quickly as possible. This Easy Alfredo Sauce is something I made in The Acme all the time, and I also make […]
