An Okie Girl’s Take on Chicken Marsala

I am torn between 2 names for this recipe, the one listed above and “Busy Momma’s Chicken Marsala”. This recipe really is a blend of both. You see, this Okie girl has received no formal cooking training. Most of my recipes are a mix of what I have on hand and what I think food should taste like. So when I have “an Okie girl’s take” in the title you can be sure I know the food professionals would probably spank me for daring to attempt such refined, classic, international dishes.

An Okie Girl’s Take on Homemade Spicy Peanut Sauce

True confessions: My refrigerator is a messy, messy beast. I have 9 types of mustard ((that is a whole other story)), at least 7 jars of pickles ((spicy pickles are my fave!!)), ketchup, mayo, several salsas, sriracha, wing sauce, olives, pasta sauce, some random leftovers, cookie dough, jams, soy sauce, eggs, cream, milk — well, you get the picture. I cringe at the thought of sharing an unfiltered photo. But, I simply opened the doors, resisted the urge to repair the mess & told the fridge to smile and say “cheese” — haha, cheese!! Prepare to be “fridge flashed” ((eek))!! Continue reading

Our Luke is in from Columbia and oh how we have missed him! So dinner was his choice, which as you may guess from the title of this post, he picked potstickers. Continue reading

An Okie Girl’s take on Tacos al Pastor

Okay folks, I thought the name of this dish was Tacos “EL” Pastor. Apparently, it isn’t “EL”, it’s “AL”.  That in and of itself is proof I am a “winger”. Not sure what “winger” means in this context?? Well, I am one of those who cooks first, reads second, or tenth — I am a winger. I mean, what mom of four, wife, pet ((times 5)) owner etc. has time to read a recipe before cooking it?? I sure don’t, I wing it every.single.time.

An Okie Girl’s take on Coconut Beef Curry ((this is gonna be good…))

If you have been trained in authentic Asian cooking, you may scroll down, scan my recipe and proceed to laugh out loud. Hard. For all I know, the recipe I am about to share it so far from authentic, it should be put into a totally new cuisine category. Either way, this is what I do. Mix, stir, adjust, imagine, taste, try and repeat. My Coconut Beef Curry was absolutely bursting with aromatic flavors. The depth and layers were magnificent. ((not to brag))
