  • I make a white rice salad that I love, I cook white rice normally without any oil then I add, sun dried tomatoes, scallions, and pine nuts (toasted) then I add a dressing made out of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt pepper, it is delicious.

  • I have two summer favorites, BBQ chicken salad and grilled portabella mushroom sandwich. Grilled BBQ chicken on a bed of romaine or leaf lettuce, corn, black beans, cilantro, tomatoes, fried onions (or green onions), and BBQ ranch dressing. (1/2 of each) YUMMY! Also marinated portabella in balsamic grilled. A firm loaf bread grilled with a herb mayo and layered with spinach, tomatoes, roasted red pepper, cheese and the grilled mushroom.

  • California Sushi Rolls, Sesame Basmati Rice, and Pot Stickers.

    I like to Roll my own sushi. It's SO easy and cheap. If you can find an Asian market they will get everything you need. The first time I went they showed me how to roll the sushi. I spent $21 on everything! So cheap, and It has lasted forever.

    Rice:. Heat Sesame oil in a saucepan. Add rice and coat evenly. Once the rice is sauteed through, Add boiling chicken stock and cook.

    Sushi: Form sushi rice onto sushi paper, add avocado, imitation crab meat(or whatever meat you want), green onion, then Roll.
    Slice sushi into bite size rolls and enjoy!

    Pot Stickers: Cook frozen Pot Stickers according to directions. I've tried making my own pot stickers, but the frozen ones are always better.

    BE ADVENTUROUS with your meals! Don't be afraid to have an epic fail. I can cook well, but pie crust is my unicorn.....

  • Fried Pork Chops with Cream Gravy
    3-4 Pork Chops
    1 cup flour
    1 teaspoon Lawrey's Seasoning Salt
    ½ teaspoon pepper
    1/4 cup vegetable oil
    1 cup chicken broth & 1 cup milk or half & half

    Preheat oven to 300. Season Pork Chops on both sides with salt and pepper. Add rest of seasoning to flour in a flat dish. Dredge pork chops in seasoned flour. Set aside while you heat oil in large heavy skillet over medium high heat.(You can re-dredge them if you like a lot of coating) When oil is hot, add pork chops. Make sure they aren't touching. They need room to fry. After 4-5 minutes, when they are golden brown on bottom, turn over. Reduce heat to medium-low and cover skillet. Continue cooking for 4-5 minutes or until chops are golden brown on bottom.

  • continued:
    Remove chops from skillet and place in oven in baking dish or pan, to stay hot while making gravy. Place remainder of seasoned flour in skillet where chops were fried. (Should be about 2 Tablespoons of flour and two tablespoons of grease in pan)Stir and cook 3-4 minutes. Add 1 cup chicken broth and 1 cup milk or half & half. Stir until thickened. Taste and season with salt & pepper if needed. Serve with mashed potatoes or rice.
