Mexican Fried Rice

It’s Election Day!  I hope everyone in the US reading this either has or will be voting.  My husband and I actually voted three weeks ago (yay for early voting) and I’ve got to be honest – I’ve been completely burned out on all the various political ads all over TV and the Internet. But now that the day is ... Read More »

Now though, I’ve been having fun experimenting – although I’ve noticed that you ... Read More »

Traditional Fish Sandwiches with a Waldorf Inspired Coleslaw

I have a bit of a confession to make.  Those fake fish deep-fried sandwiches from popular fast food chains?  I love those. I know, I’m all about healthy recipes and local and well, real food but there’s just something about those deep-fried fake fish sandwiches that I really like (probably the grease).  Maybe it’s the processed cheese melting on top, ...
