    Chinese Chicken Salad – Kitchen Sink Style!

    Two days ago I had a great Chinese Chicken Salad and haven’t been able to get it out of my mind since.  So I decided I needed one right now!  In the fridge I had chicken thighs, butter and romaine lettuces, asparagus, an orange, sliced almonds, dried pineapple (that doesn’t happen often), and in the pantry I had chow mein noodles and the last tablespoon of a jar of sesame seeds.  That’s what I had, so that’s what I used.  If I had on hand some green onion, carrots, water chestnuts, etc… I would have added them, but this is a case of working with what you have on hand. …

    Tortured Orchard’s Sweet Apple Blush

    Tonight I had a craving for ice cream…nothing new there, but I wanted something different to top my good old vanilla flavor.  I’ve been harboring TORTURED ORCHARD’s SWEET APPLE BLUSH for quite a while now because I wanted to first try it in crepes, however, I am not a milk drinker and you need milk to make crepes so I constantly forgot to add that to the grocery list in my mind (don’t try this at home…doesn’t work), so what’s a girl to do but break out the ice cream!  Oh yeah!  Vanilla ice cream and TORTURED ORCHARD’s Sweet Apple Blush get along just fine!  Oh yeah! TORUTURED ORCHARD also…

    TORTURED ORCHARD’S GOLDEN SAUCE Two Ways

    This powerfully tasteful mustard pepper sauce may be my favorite of TORTURED ORCHARDS many great sauces so far!  And it is so complete with flavor that as a marinade for your protein you don’t need anything else.  It could not be more quick and easy to make a palate pleasing plate (how about that alliteration?) with GOLDEN SAUCE.  Just add veggies!   I’m not big on marinating for hours and hours because I feel it changes the integrity of the protein, and whenever there is an acid involved (vinegar here), it actually will begin to “cook” your protein.  Not everyone agrees with that but it is what I was taught…

    Red Snapper Recipe with TORTURED ORCHARD Lemon Ginger Twist

    I have this great recipe of Giada De Laurentiis’s for Ginger Sea Bass over Wilted Greens that is very quick and easy to make and just tastes fantastic!  So I have been craving it lately.  Sea Bass is my favorite fish but at $22.99 per pound it isn’t often in my budget, however Red Snapper was on sale for $6.99, so I bought it and knew I could find something in my pantry…my Everyday Pantry!  to make a tasty, healthy meal.  So, when I am putting away my groceries, I see my jar of TORTURED ORCHARD Lemon Ginger Twist and think…jackpot! Now this take on the original recipe has gotten even…
