Giveaway: LG EasyClean Double Oven Range + Korean Kalbi Baby Back Ribs Recipe

The nearest good Korean BBQ restaurant is over an hour drive away, simply too far when the best accompaniment to Korean BBQ is several super-cold OB beer alternating with sips of chilled soju (Korean rice alcohol, like Japanese sake).

That’s why we love making Korean food at home, but it also means that I have to . . .

Chinese Daikon and Carrot Soup

I’ve been making a lot of Chinese home-style soups lately – Nathan has been going through some health challenges lately and all he wants to eat is clear soup. My house smells like Mom’s house when I simmer a pot of soup. One most frequently asked questions I get is, “what’s your favorite recipe from […]

Grilled Chicken with Blackberry Sweet and Sour Sauce

We don’t get many choices in Chinese restaurants in my town – all the joints are a jumbled mish-mash of Americanized Asian food and they all serve sushi (because it sells really well with high profit margins). Last week, we went to one for lunch and Andrew ordered Sweet and Sour Chicken. The chicken was […]

Ducklings learning to swim

  The great thing about living near a farm store is that I no longer need to have baby fowl delivered via postal service. The bad thing about living near a farm store is that I just cannot stay away. Last week, the kids and I snuck over there while Scott was out of town […]

Vegetable Thai Curry Noodle Soup

Pretty soon, I’ll have to rebrand this site to be “Steamy Farmer” right?! So, dinners recently have been super quick-cooking meals and […]
