Salad Nicoise!

It's spring out here! Well in a few weeks it will be the unofficial beginning of summer. Once Memorial Day hits out here, it's summer for all intents and purposes. The kids are out of school until early August.

Since warm weather means room temp or cool foods, this is a tasty one. I used leftover vegetables, and steamed some not quite so tiny baby red potatoes.

So my husband has been working on this cooking method for a while. When in the South, smoke meat!

Sweet & Spicy ribs... Where did they go?

sweet & spicy ribs

This is my follow up on the sweet and spicy marinade. This is the preferred sauce for ribs or pork in my house. Now Bella has her way of cooking ribs, and this is my way.

steaming hot pho

I love soups, quick soups especially. Pho is not a quick soup, well the process is not quick unless you use a pressure cooker. Steamy Kitchen's Pho or Steamy Kitchen's crockpot Pho I have found that using a pressure cooker takes about 5 hours off the process. Does it taste as good? Yea it's not bad, slow cooking is the best, but crockpots are never big enough!
