What's For Dinner

I've had a vision of Asian Pork Tacos for a few weeks now and have yet to really pull it off.  I tried it in the crockpot and it was delish, but not really what I wanted.  I pictured something a little crispy, a little sweet and a little salty. My husband brought up his love for Teriyaki pork chops, so that's what I made tonight.  I let them marinade over night in a homemade marinade of soy, ginger, garlic, brown sugar, cilantro and orange juice.  I BBQ'd them on low for about 5 minutes on each side.  Then after a mandatory rest on the counter, I sliced into the thin chops and was wowed!  My husband was right!  They are fab. I made them with my fave slaw.  Here's the recipe:

Crunchy Asian Slaw
  • 1 cup shredded cabbage
  • 1 cup broccoli slaw
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 2 radishes, jullianed
  • TSP fresh cilantro
   For the dressing:
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 tsp orange zest
  • 4 tsp oyster sauce or soy sauce
  • fresh grated garlic and ginger to taste
For the dressing, simply combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix with whisk.  Add cabbage, broccoli, carrots, radishes to the dressing and mix well.  Top with cilantro.  Goes great with a few honey roasted peanuts or crispy chow mein noodles.


Do I know the way to my man's heart or what?  Turkey chili dogs, while so simple and quick are one of my most fave disgusting food addictions.  I don't meant that it's really disgusting, it's just something that you could eat all the time and live with yourself.  When I was in my early 20's I mainly ate beer, vodka and other assorted spirits sandwiches and Top Ramen and the occasional TCD-turkey chili dog.  So last night when I just really didn't feel like cooking, I made him one, and he was happy!  I was too.  It made me feel 20 again. (Not really.)

What's one of your fave disgusting food addictions? 

Uh oh!

Whoops!  I was trying to get fancy with my blog and I ended up changing it entirely!  I will be finalizing my changes soon, and have some fun things on the horizon, including a give-away and some delish new recipes.  I hope you'll be back to check out it soon.


I recently had the pleasure of helping a dear friend with the food for a baby shower. One of the hits of the party was a very simple let delicious cheese ball recipe. Ours were more like cheese mountains, as we molded them in small souffle cups. Here's the recipe for all you die hard cheeseballers!

Cheeseballs/Cheese mountains
  • 1 package non-fat cream cheese
  • about 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • about 1/2 cup of finely diced Armour Dried Beef
Bon appetite!
