Egg Fu Yung Twist


The recipe here on the Lioness website for Egg Fu Yung calls for bean sprouts, which can be hard to come by here, unless you sprout them yourself. And sometimes not having them keeps me from using the recipe. Also, on occasion, I run out of sesame oil, so tonight I tried a variation that I thought you might like.

In place of bean sprouts, use shredded cabbage.  And instead of sesame oil in the sauce, crush a few tablespoons of sesame seeds, white or black and put them in the sauce.

With these changes, the flavor was great and we enjoyed every bite!

Be creative and see what other veggies you could use either in addition to those listed or as a substitute.

Cooking can be much more fun when you use your creative powers!

Happy cooking!

Little Veggie Inspiration


I walked into a friends house the other day while she was sauteing veggies for part of their breakfast!  They looked so good I had to try something like it.  I choose to combine chopped asparagus, diced summer squash, onions and mushrooms. I simply sauteed them in olive oil and sprinkled them with a little dried vegetable seasoning.  They were so good with our pasta!

Have you tried cooking any new combinations of vegetables lately?  Any ideas you want to share?

I’m so excited to have herbs growing inside and now outside in a grow box.  I cut up fresh oregano, basil and rosemary for the pasta.  There is nothing like the real thing!

I hope you have a great, growing summer!



Smoked Turkey Omelette


Oh, I wish you could smell this!

Well, tasting it is better, because I think Asiago cheese smells, hmm, not so good.  It tastes very good, but the smell…yeh.

This is a speedy dinner or a light lunch or a very nice breakfast!

6 eggs

1/2 tsp Real salt

1/2 cup cream

Blend and pour into a buttered 9″ casserole dish.

Cover with:

Bite-sized pieces of smoked turkey (about 1-1 1/2 cups)

1 green onion sliced (white and green parts)

Sprinkle with smoked paprika.

Bake at 350° for 30 minutes.  Then sprinkle with finely grated Asiago cheese. Garnish with chopped tomato if you like.

Oh, my!  This is very tasty!  I hope you like it!




A Snickity Snack


It’s little and it’s yummy.  My friend Judy asked me a few months ago if I had ever tried eating cucumbers with peanut butter.  No, never occurred to me and I really couldn’t imagine the two tastes together.  As it turns out, I’m in love! And I eat this little snack all the time!  Does it sound strange to you? Maybe your little people will like it.

Happy Monday to your house!



“Try it and you may I say!”



This is a picture story. Start from the bottom and work up!  Mix in your favorite flavor when you stir in the mayo if you’d like!  (I really like curry and wasabi!) Enjoy!!!
