Wonton Wednesday at Pick Up Stix

You can find me eating with chopsticks at least once, maybe twice a week if not more often.  But just like many other cuisines, I sometimes get in a rut with Asian food.  The kids like Panda Express; Nicole has an affinity for PF Changs; and I enjoy a few local Thai places.  All of […]

Pears and Apples in Hot Buttered Rum Sauce

My mom used to cook apples on the stove top all the time, usually as a side for a breakfast meal of ham, rice, and biscuits.  It added the perfect sweetness to the meal…in addition to the jam or syrup we put on the biscuits!  I came up with my own version of her recipe.

Lady Bug Asian Grill in Gardena

Today for lunch I was hungry but my cravings were at opposite ends. I was starving so I wanted something heavy and beefy, like a burger or a steak. But it was hot too (80+ degrees in January!?) and I wanted something cool and light like a salad or sushi. Lady Bug Asian Grill came to my rescue!
