Lettuce Wraps

Lettuce Wraps
My lettuce wraps are... to die for - at least that’s what I have been told. Just fill, fold and eat!  They are not just delicious; they are loads of fun.

They are visually impressive and a palate pleaser.  Lettuce wraps are thought of as a restaurant dish and appear too exotic and time consuming to whip up at home.  Not true, they are easy – easy – easy.

Grilled Zucchini and Summer Squash with Balsamic & Bleu

Grilled Zucchini & Summer Squash with Balsamic and Bleu
Grilled veggies are delicious year round. However, we don’t always think to make them when the weather outside is gloomy and cold or we are too lazy to fire up the BBQ.

Korean Spicy Bean Sprout Soup

Korean Spicy Bean Sprout Soup
Though I have cooked and eaten many Korean soups. I have never eaten or attempted to make Bean Sprout Soup.  To be honest, it just looked boring.  How can this soup be tasty when all it has are bean sprouts?  “Where’s the Beef”?  So, you’re probably wondering why I decide to make it.

Foolproof 2 Minute Hollandaise

My version of Eggs Benedict with a crispy well toasted English muffin, country ham, poached eggs, a generous amount of hollandaise and a surprise...
a slice of tomato under the ham to give it a fresh taste.
I was in the mood for eggs benedict, but was feeling too lazy to get dressed.  Anyone ever have that happen?  Or is it just me… thinking that it’s more work to get dressed, than to whip up a batch of hollandaise.  A luxurious breakfast in casual clothes sounded like a great plan to me!

Eggplant Pie or Casserole

I’m calling this dish Eggplant Pie because it cut so nicely and reminded me of a slice of pie.
