Welcome to my recipe page!
It's a fact . . . I love great food. To have great food, since I no longer live with my mother who is, no doubt, one of the world's best chefs, I must sometimes cook. Turns out cooking is fun . . . especially if you can bribe someone into cleaning up after you.
So, when I'm not writing or playing my favorite sport, I am often cooking. Here are some of favorites. Check back often as I will add new recipes periodically . . . maybe even share some of my mother's originals!
I’m busy working on book number three but just the other night I took some time out to have some friends over for an impromptu dinner. I used a recipe my neighbor has cooked a few times. It’s great and really easy!!!
boneless pork chops
a green pepper
thick Kikkoman Teriyaki
Salt and pepper your chops. Place them on separate squares of foil. Top with a pat of butter, an onion slice, a pineapple slice and then the pepper (stack in that order). Pour on some teriyaki and grill to desired temperature. We served this with couscous which was a perfect side! Enjoy.
For Summer Salad
This is easy, too.
Red Pepper (diced)
Pasta (cooked, drained, chilled)
Red onion (diced)
Wild Tree Italian Dressing
fresh Mozzarella cubed
Toss and serve…
Then…HIT THE BEACH
This week, I’m hosting the neighborhood book club meeting. Instead of reviewing a novel, however, we are having “cookbook night.” Everyone brings a dish from their favorite cookbook and shares. Such a great idea. But it got me thinking…I rarely look at cookbooks anymore. When I want a new recipe, I look for one on the Internet. ( usually at FoodNetwork.com) You can find pretty much any kind of recipe on there so why buy a 30 dollar book, right? Check out my recipe »
Okay, this has nothing to do with writing or any of my books. But I love football and we’re right in the middle of the season, so I thought I’d share a great tailgate dip recipe. It’s so easy it’s almost embarrassing. Check out my recipe »
