"If at first you don't succeed, try, try again." William Edward Hickson
I know one thing for sure, you won't catch me opening a Chinese restaurant..
I ate at a well known, expensive restaurant twice in 24 hours and then again a few days later just so I could try and figure out the sauce so I could recreate the flavors at home. I've had many flops over the years but keep trying to perfect a few entrees.
This sweet, garlic-pepper chicken was finger-lickin' good with not a crumb, wing or spoon of sauce left. 27 pieces gone in a flash between the 3 of us. It took me a looooong time to get this one right, and by golly I think I've done it.
I love trying to figure out how the the restaurants create their flavors, but making it at home for my family without spending the the going-out-to-eat prices.
Will you take a look at this class. All BOYS!!!
Most of you know Tom and I have 6 sons, so for me to to get a cooking class of all boys was a treat and so much fun for me to teach.
Wow, seriously an amazing group of young, polite men.
"We had a bomb diggity time - loved the class and we'll do it again. Thank you for sharing your home and cooking experiences with my boys. God is good!!! -M.S.S."
Since I did not have much luck with the Pokemon Go app yesterday, I went in search of strange looking things in our yard.... I had to look no further than my garden.
I'm proud to say the carrots I grew taste amazing once they are all cleaned up in their own shining glory.
I wanted to keep pulling carrots out of the earth to see what shape I would uncover for entertainment. I rather love the look of these beauties, plus it adds a bit of whimsey to the dinner plate. Who wants to look like a normal carrot anyways.
What I want to know is why in the heck did I hang them on our laundry line for a picture, who just does that?! It's our very own laundry line carrot art....
Inspired by the loves of my life. the hunger in my stomach and my SPONTANEOUS nature.
