    Sesame Chile Tempeh with Gingered Watermelon Salsa Recipe

    This is probably one of those, “I am the last to know” situations, but I wanted to tell you about a really great cooking show that I recently discovered. I get only basic cable tv at this time, so I find some shows and channels coming through that I have never heard of before. One of those channels that I can’t get enough of is create tv. It is also online at www.createtv.com. One of the cooking shows on the channel is Christina Cooks (online at www.christinacooks.com). Christina Pirello, MFN, CCN, “creates” an entertaining show by actually teaching a class that is informative and laced with humor. I love her…

    Braised Short Ribs, one of my favorite recipes

    I wanted to share with you one of my favorite recipes.  I noticed today that my local market had short ribs on special, and since I’m always looking for a deal,I bought some for myself and my client. The following recipe is for four people, however, I usually cook for two.  I have made this several times over the past three years, and have found for my personal taste, I do not cut the sauce in half even though I cook half the beef.  That’s my personal preference, but please try it a couple of times to find out what works for your personal taste.  I think it is really good no…

    Homemade Ketchup Recipe

    Now that summer is coming to a close…yes, much too soon, I agree… you may have more ripe tomatoes than you know what to do with.  So, why not make your own ketchup?  Heinz won’t mind.   I know that when I was growing up in Des Moines, Iowa, we often had tomato plants in the back yard, and my grandparents always had some in their garden.  As a matter of fact, we never bought tomatoes from the grocery store!  We only had fresh tomatoes during the summer months, and I just loved eating them right off the vine.   It wasn’t until I moved to California that I ever bought…

    Meatloaf I Actually Like!

    My most hated supper when I was growing up was MEATLOAF! Hated it! And by the way, I never use the word “hate”. To me it’s just a four letter, bad word. But meatloaf (I’ll call it ML from now on) just made me want to cry and throw a tantrum (please no comments from those who knew me as a child). For about a hundred years since my childhood, I have resisted ordering ML in restaurants, even when it is on the “specials” list…oh, please, it is NOT special, its MEATLOAF! I am usually up to trying anything, but ML, no can do. Well, today I was searching for…
