Chicken Enchiladas

Chicken enchiladas are one of my favorite dishes. For decades, this dish has been in my life. I have such wonderful memories of my great-grandmother making a pan of ground beef enchiladas without olives when I was a tiny tot.

Spicy BLT Avocado Toast

Say it with me, Spicy BLT Avocado Toast. Perhaps I should start off by saying that I did not think I liked avocado for the longest time. I know, I know.  What type of self-respecting southern Californian does not like avocado?  I swear I did not.  Boy, I have never been so happy to prove myself wrong.

Why I Love to Cook

I love to cook, in case you have not noticed. In my (not so) humble opinion, I tend to be pretty good at it.  Recently, I realized I was using my cooking abilities in both a healthy and unhealthy manner.  As I look back over the years, I can see where I used it as a tool to get people to like me.  Moreover, I would use my culinary prowess to get praise and acceptance.

Spicy Orange Beef

Spicy orange beef is a delicious and easy stir-fry dish.  It can be paired with rice or noodles, but personally, I love it by itself.  This dish can be made in a wok or 12-inch skillet.

Roasted Peking Chicken Breasts

Roasted Peking Chicken breast is a new recipe to help me in my quest to expand my culinary horizons. When I look for easy, delicious recipes, I cracked open my copy of The All New Good Housekeeping Cookbook by Susan Westmoreland. First off, I still love this cookbook. It was first published on December 31, 2001. My copy is falling apart at the spine. Consequently, I bought a slightly used copy from eBay. Oddly enough, I am still using the tattered copy.

Stocking Series: The Pantry

It is frustrating to run out of things, especially when I am in the middle of cooking! (Hint: Thoroughly reading recipes in advance this can be significantly minimized.)  Having a well-stocked pantry can save the day when having to create a quick meal.
