Cooking/Baking

Pancit (Bihon)

I learned to make pancit from the Chamorro people while we were stationed in Guam. There was always a huge lecture about which noodle to use, and the winner was always rice vermicelli. No one wanted pancit (canton) with thick noodle, it had to be thin!

Bok Choy Harvest & Kadun Kadu (Chamorro Beef Soup)

We lived on Guam for 3 years before we got out of the U.S. Navy; it was the Husband's second tour on Guam. One of the recipes I instantly loved was Kadun Kadu and everytime I can get my hands on bok choy, I'm almost sure to make it.

Collards & Black-Eyed Peas

Oh, how I miss the South! So, the only other thing I can do to keep from being homesick is cook Southern food, especially since we're up here in this bleak and bland land they call Kansas. (We haven't been impressed with Midwestern casseroles.)

Slow Food & Air Fryers

Okay, I'm opinionated about instant pots and air fryers. I'm anti-instant pot, but I'm on my way to being converted to an air fryer believer. (The jury is still out until I've attempted egg rolls in the air fryer.) I will note that I would never have purchased an air fryer, but I did receive one as a Christmas gift from my kitchen-gadget-loving mother.

Merry Christmas!

Black Friday

Typically, anything I'm looking for isn't even on sale, and anything I'm looking for most likely can't be purchased locally either. I also like avoiding indoor and outdoor traffic, fist fights in parking lots, and the flu.

It’s a Tradition: Smoked Salmon

I love smoked salmon at Christmas...by itself, on crackers or toast, for breakfast or lunch, even with green eggs, Sam, I am.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Good food, family, and not taking things for granted.

Homemade Peppermint Mochas

Merry Christmas Eve! There isn't anything like being snowed in curled up by the tree and fireplace in a fluffy blanket with a hot peppermint mocha. I don't need to run out and go through a line to order one, I can make it right here at home. I am my own barrista!
