Chicken-lemon-sauce-swirling_thumb.jpg

This Frikase is not Fricassee. This Frikase recipe is Greek – a super tender chicken dish cooked up with romaine lettuce, then swirled (NOT stirred) with a lip-smacking egg lemon sauce. Even reheated two days later, it was still yummy. I just love lemon-flavored Greek eats.

Marty, my co-volunteer at the hospital, says he doesn’t cook.  In an effort to fix that, his wife, Irma gave him a series of cooking classes taught by Fresh Food in a Flash blogger, Chef Patricia Rose.

Tee Pon Chicken (aka Sherry-Soy Chicken)

1TeePonChicken.jpg

Advice, please?  I was cooking a simple Tee Pon Chicken recipe, but fretting about photographing “ugly” brown on brown — dark shredded chicken over brown rice. Forget garnishes, I was HUNGRY and it smelled divine. Taking pictures of meat is a crap-shoot (sorry, kinda graphic when talking about food) but I really wanted to share […]

Sunday morning, I awoke thinking about Sunday dinner. We had tickets to Rod Stewart and Stevie Nicks at the Hollywood Bowl.  Larry is Mr. Ticket; if a concert is coming to LA, he’s all over it. I’m not such a die-hard concert-goer; I love to picnic, however. He loves concerts but loathes the parking. Our […]
