I think bok choy is gorgeous.  Pretty enough to put in a planter and have in my living room, really.  It’s probably a good thing I have a black thumb.  But when it comes to cooking it, I am semi-clueless.  I know how to use it in stir fry, but that’s about…(Read More)

Mmmmm, apples.  My family can’t get enough of them.  Most of the apples in my house disappear before I can do anything creative with them.  This morning, I snagged two huge Granny Smiths before they could get eaten and made some pretty amazing (and not bad for you!) apple pancakes.

Leftovers.  You can’t live with them, you can’t live without them.  I used to think they were my nemesis but I’ve come up with a few meal solutions that clear out the refrigerator and earn oohs and ahs instead of groans. Shepherd’s Pie First of all, any leftover meat and gravy…(Read More)
