Thai Red Curry Shrimp with Coconut Rice (How to Freeze Rice) | Make Ahead Mondays

    My husband doesn’t like curry. …Or at least he SAYS he doesn’t  like curry. He claims it makes him belchy. (Since when did that deter him, I ask…) This is one of my eternal frustrations because I do like it. A lot. It goes both ways.  My husband adores angel hair pasta cooked [Read On]

Slow-Cooker Red Beans and Rice and Creole Seasoning | Make Ahead Mondays

I’m going to go ahead and say right now that I have absolutely zero idea how authentically “Cajun” today’s recipe is, having never actually been to the great state of Louisana.

Jangsanjeok | Korean Simmered Teriyaki Style Beef Patties

I got goodies in the mail this week. Score!  It was a massive package of unexpected food-related goodies from my brother and his wife in Korea. Hat trick!

Slow-Simmered Collard Greens

This is a continuation of my Southern New Year’s Foods series.  And it comes with an executive decision.  I was unable to get photos of the dish, but I wanted you to have the recipe before New Year’s Eve.  So up it goes sans photos of the greens!  If I get photos of it at [Read On]
