Bean Curd and Mixed Vegetables!

I’ve posted this in the past but not in a while so I thought I would re-post it. This is one of my favorite Asian recipes. It is really easy to make and really delicious (and nutritious, too). The only difference in the recipe pictured and the one written below is that I used aContinue reading “Bean Curd and Mixed Vegetables!”

Really Simple (and really delicious) Stir-Fry Recipe

This recipe is so easy but it is also equally delicious. Once you have everything prepped it takes a mere 5 minutes to cook.

The above image may be a bit misleading because it is not the finished recipe, it is the ingredients that haveContinue reading “Kim Chi”


Yup…it’s that time of year again. Time to start thinking about the victory garden. That’s a savoy cabbage plant pictured above. Future food for my son and I. In a few months I plan on eating it.

The only differences in the version I prepared today (the one picture) is that I added a sliced orange and toasted sesameContinue reading “Salute the General”

Things That Can be Carried on a Bike (#407)

Two portions of seafood and vegetable fried rice. I made this for staff lunch today and it was so good I brought a few leftovers home for dinner. To see the basic recipe being made click here (I also added curry spices to this recipe). Urban Simplicity.

Simple Stirfy…or, how to make something really quick and delicious with what you have

I’ve said this before, but some evenings cooking dinner in my home is like taking a mystery basket test. By the time I get home my son is hungry (and so am I) so time is something to consider…and there’s often just a scant few things in the fridge. Don’t believe the unrealistic TV showsContinue reading “Simple Stirfy…or, how to make something really quick and delicious with what you have”
