Fried Bologna "Reuben" SandwichI love me a good Reuben Sandwich.  I’ve posted a couple of versions before, The Classic and The Breakfast Reuben.  I’m not such a purest that I’m not willing to try a new angle on my old favorite, hence The Fried Bologna Reuben Sandwich!  Continue reading

Creamy Russian DressingRussian dressing?  No.  This is really more of a spread or dip.  It’s this creamy version that absolutely makes a perfect Reuben sandwich.  I love Reuben sandwiches.  I think they are my favorite grilled sandwich and largely it’s because of a good, thick schmear of this little bit of heaven.  This is pretty decent on a burger and it absolutely makes a roast beef sandwich.  Oh, yeah…you can actually dress a salad, with it too!

Danish Red Cabbage Salad with Apples & MandarinsI’ve decided to inundate you with slaws…I’m loving them, so I feel the need to force feed them to you!  This one is beautiful, very holiday-looking, and is particularly nice in winter.  It drowns out the grey, days of dreariness with its vivid colors and it just tastes great!  Continue reading

Slaw with Mandarin Orange and JicamaSlaws are underrated, in The Goddess’s ever so humble opinion.  I think perhaps we think they are too ordinary, which is too bad.  They don’t have to be.  Explore your inner, creative side and slaw away!   Continue reading

Egg Roll SoupI was thinking of Chinese food.  Truth be told, I’m usually thinking about food, and many times it leans Chinese.  I love egg rolls or spring rolls.  I was thinking about egg rolls.  Dreaming, really.  So with the winter chill, I was thinking about tossing together a soup of some sort.  And with the Asian New Year around the corner, light bulb moment!!!  Why not combine the two?  Continue reading

Skillet Pork Chops on a Bed of Onions and MushroomsThe Latin Lover worked through lunch, so we’re dining early tonight.  The Goddess had needed a quick-fix.  So pork chops over rice, that’s enriched with white wine and stock, as well as sautéed onions and mushrooms.  Into the oven and about 30 minutes later…dinner!  Continue reading

Asian Sloppy Joe'sI hope you are familiar with the Asian chef, Ming Tsai.  He did a series on PBS and he had a restaurant in the Boston area, Blue Ginger.  Anyway, this is based on a recipe from one of his books.  They are so good, sloppy and just plain delicious.  I think they’re better the next day.  Continue reading

Simple, Simply Delicious Sloppy Joe'sSloppy Joe’s were always my birthday request when I was but a wee one.  I still love them.  My mother made hers with tomato soup, but I tend not to use canned soups…I think it might just be a bit of snobbery on my part, because there really was a reason I asked for them every year.  They were sublimely delicious!  Continue reading

Seafood Coconut Curry with MangoI’ve been thinking about Indian food recently.  Obsessing really.  This is what usually sends me off on a recipe search.  Picture The Goddess, crawling in camo through her jungle of cookbooks and the Inter”Webs”, in search of ideas.  That’s an image, isn’t it?  In this case, there wasn’t really a search.  It just sort of came together, and I had leftover shrimp and lobster…see how that works?  Continue reading

The Goddess has taken a little break…okay, it’s been a bit of a long break. She and The Latin Lover took off to the Northeast over the Christmas holiday and stayed a bit longer than anticipated.  But, she’s back now and is cooking and exploring a new flavor, jackfruit!  Continue reading
