Chang Thai, Our Family’s New Favorite

This entry is part of a series, Restaurants»

My daughter continues to surprise me with her food interests. Recently (meaning, since she’s gone away to school) she’s learned to enjoy Pad Thai. She came home one weekend and said she wanted to find a Thai place nearby that could feed her need; did I know […]

Chicken-Stuffed Tomatoes, Yum!

Just the thought of going out to the garden about lunchtime and picking a couple of juicy, ripe tomatoes for stuffing is already making my mouth water! Here’s a couple of ways to prepare a great summer lunch, easy and hard (sorta).

Going Back Pho More at a Local Favorite

This entry is part of a series, Restaurants»

I’ve not been eating out much since the Holiday break. Concentrating on writing keeps me close to the keyboard, and the pantry and fridge are well-stocked. When I leave the friendly confines of the Chile Underground World Headquarters and Pepper-Perceptive Man Cave it’s to visit the gym […]

My mom grew up in a large farm family (seven girls, one boy, one bathroom) and all of them learned to cook. So one of the first things you can expect when the Clan gathers for a major event is a big meal, somewhere. Aunt Reba got tagged this time…

We were only a few […]
