Hurricane Harvey is approaching and the grocery shelves all over Houston are depleting. A metroplex with five million plus people and people are looking for food. This is very common for us in Texas during hurricane season. Surprisingly Jello and dish soap were plentiful.  If a hurricane can empty the shelves, just think if truckers strike or a pro-longed war happens. Food! Do not take it for granted or waste it.

Indian food is absolutely delicious! With Indian food you can quickly learn you do not need meat to have an awesome meal. Thali in India means “Platter.” Maharaja Bhog offers “THE BEST” Thali experience in Houston. The food is full of flavor, fresh, and the service is exceptional. Check them out! maharajabhog.com

The Blue Nile Ethiopian Restaurant in Houston located at 9400 Richmond offers amazing food, service, and authenticity. If you are in a hurry go somewhere else. They cook food from scratch. Excellent food! That takes time. Check it out! http://www.bluenilerestaurant.com/

Some of my favorite culinary creations for 2016. Mexican, American, Vegan, Indian, Mediterranean, African, Hamburgers, Russian, Italian, Greek, Dessert, I love it all!

I have had so much BBQ in my life that I can hands down say the Pecan Lodge has a perfect balance of smoke, sauce, and tenderness to the meat. The service is excellent even when crowds wrap around the exterior. One unique thing is fried chicken on the platter instead of BBQ chicken. I have never had that at any BBQ establishment, and I must say the fried chicken is superbly crispy, seasoned, and juicy. For more on the Pecan Lodge check out their website http://www.pecanlodge.com/ This is one stop you need to make while in Dallas, Texas.

One of my favorite, healthy, quick, inexpensive meals, that is full of flavor, and so easy, anyone can do it. King Oscar Norwegian Sardines, Kalamata Olives, Hummus, Pita Flatbread, and Mini Cucumber. What do you enjoy that is quick, easy, and not needing any form of cooking?

So a friend says,” I haven’t seen any food photos in awhile. Do you still cook?” I cook almost daily. Ethic, Americana, you name it. I love food and food is life. Here are a few dishes I have made recently. Tacos with Pico De Gallo, Guacamole, and Salsa Verde, Grilled Catfish with peas and couscous, Chicken Fried Steak with Butter Gold Mashed Potatos and Peas, Beef Empanadas with Green Banana Curry, Picadillo with Platanos, Black Beans, Rice, and a Fried Egg, and Fried Chicken with Okra and Corn. I hope my photos inspire you to get into the kitchen and out of the box. Enjoy!

Culinary – A Haiku

To cook is to love

For food is the fuel to live

And the art of life.

Homemade Pizzas

There is nothing better than putting your own pizzas together using fresh ingredients from the garden.

I used my own fresh basil for the Margarita pizza which is basically pizza sauce, tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella.

The Hawaiian pizza has fresh pineapple which is 100 times better than canned. The Hawaiian has pizza sauce, fresh pineapple, Canadian Bacon, and mozzarella.

The last one is my take on a supreme with pizza sauce, Italian sausage, Pepperoni, fresh mushrooms, onions, garlic, yellow pepper, and black olives.

Ok, foodies! Here is a wonderful meal. I recently checked out Wichcraft by Tom Colicchio from the library. It is the ultimate sandwich book in my opinion. Also, I checked out Rosalind Creasy’s Recipes From The Garden. The recipes to both of these dishes are available in these books. Happy cooking!
