Household Chicken Soup

Last year I made chicken soup 3 times.  It turned out pretty good and was very soothing, so I decided to share the recipe again.

This recipe is still a go-to during the cold and flu season. I hope that you will give it a try and enjoy it as much as we did.

Eggplant Parmesan


I believe that I clipped this recipe from The Houston Chronicle over 20 years ago, and it's definitely a keeper.  However, if you're the type of cook that would like to get out of the kitchen pretty fast, you may think that it's too time-consuming.

Dishwasher Magnet

Do you have a system in place in your home for loading and unloading the dishwasher?

Dirty/Clean Dishwasher Magnet

Sounds like a simple task but if more than one person assumes this task, it can be sometimes a little confusing.  I designed a simple solution for my home.  Check it out and see if it will work for you.

Cornish Hens with Carrots

I cook Cornish hens often, but not always the same way. I guess you can say that about a lot of my meals. This time around, I decided to add some carrots in with the hens. The basting of the Cornish hens required a little butter or ghee. The ghee and the broth from the hens gave a delightful favor.  A lot of my recipes have been updated to accommodate the Paleo or Whole 30 lifestyle.  I did, however, include the rice for those of us who still enjoy it on occasion.  Enjoy!

I'd appreciate your letting me know if you prepare the dish.

Basmati Rice



This is very light and fragrant rice.  I'm not a fan of white rice but I enjoy this one.  Believe it or not, there are several health benefits of Basmati Rice.  Take a look at the link below or check out one for yourself:

Try adding shrimp or pre-cooked sliced sausages to your okra and tomatoes and serve over rice for a complete meal.
