Maple syrup not on pancakes

I saute a half banana and small (or half) apple in a little coconut oil and a little cinnamon. I put it on top of greek yogurt. Drizzle a little maple syrup over it and finally top with a little sprinkle of toasted coconut chips (TJs). So good!

I love the combo chinese chicken salad at Ho Sum Bistro http://www.yelp.com/biz_photos/ho-sum...

A Market has really good sandwiches http://www.yelp.com/biz/a-market-newp...

Santouka is my favorite place for ramen http://www.yelp.com/biz/santouka-rame...

Your Most Requested Dish Recipe

Mine are super basic. Just browned ground beef with onions and bell peppers and seasoned with salt and pepper. The "sauce" is Heinz Chili Sauce. Other brands are not as good. I have made more involved recipes but people flip out over these old school ones that I always fall back to them.

Trader Joe's Yea/Nay Thread - 4th quarter 2011 [OLD]

I agree on the Lobster Ravioli....it was not good at all. Very disapointing.

Childhood foods you would *totally* eat now...

My mom would never let us have junk in the house. Occasionally when we would go to the commissary she would let us get powdered sugar donuts or fritos and bean dip. The trick was they could not come into the house, so we had to eat all we wanted of them in the car on the ride home from the commissary. Somehow I think this did more harm than good. We just learned to buy the junk and just eat it all at once so it wasn't sitting around as evidence.

Childhood foods you would *totally* eat now...

We only got frozen dinners when we had a baby sitter. I loved the turkey dinner ones and thought they were so fancy when we got to have them. I also loved the Swanson chicken potpies dumped out on a plate with the bottom crust broken up into it...lots of pepper and cottage cheese when I got down to the top crust.

How do you use Huy Fong Chili Garlic Sauce?

I marinated chicken tenders in coconut milk (small can), peanut butter (1/3 cup), brown sugar (2 tbsp), chili garlic sauce (2 tbsp), salt and pepper for dinner tonight. Grilled them with fresh veggies (zucchini and crookneck squash, red yellow and orange peppers, and sweet onion) and brushed some of the marinade on the veggies as well. Turned out really good.

Tulsa/Broken Arrow, Oklahoma

Hi, I am traveling to the Tulsa/Broken Arrow area for business the first week of January. I was looking for any suggestions on good restaurants to try for dinner (breakfast and lunch suggestions too if you got em). We will be there the whole week and wanted to get some decent food. I am open to try anything good. I am a bit of a foodie so I am not into chain restaurants, etc. Thanks so much.

Hey what's for Thanksgiving?

How do you do the carmelized onion/blue cheese tarts? That sounds great!

Brownies from a mix using applesauce instead of oil?

Using canned pumpkin works well and also has a lot of fiber in it so it's even better for you. I use a can of pumpkin with my cake mixes instead of the eggs, oil, water. This works great.

Strawberry Riesling Poundcake Dessert

My mom is looking for a recipe that she got from one of the wineries up in Napa. However, she lost the receipe. She remembers that the dessert was pound cake soaked in Riesling. The poundcake was layered with strawberries. Does anyone have any variations of this recipe or an idea of how it is made? Thanks for your help.

Popping your own popcorn

I second the coconut oil...it makes great popcorn....I also use it on corn on the cob when I grill it.

Recipes for my brother

I had my mouth wired shut for a whole summer and a broken jaw when I was in high school. I still have pins and wires in my jaw that you can see in x-rays. I lived on blended soups (these were the BEST), Jamba Juice (or Juice it Up or whatever one you have in your area), mashed potatoes with just about ANY sauce (cheese sauce, gravy, just about ANYthing Asian like Teriyaki - I loved that one), grits. I had a friend who thought she was doing me a favor and she would try to blend up all sorts of things for me to eat....and some things just aren't meant to be blended together. BLECH! Also, as gross as this is, please keep in mind that he can't brush the inside of his teeth. So, while tuna may have tasted good going down, it may not taste so good on the back of his teeth in a few days. I actually whined and complained enough about it that they finally put me back to sleep on day and brushed the inside of my teeth. They can not do this while you are awake...one little wrong move and you will totally rebrake your jaw so they can't chance it. Also, when the wires do finally come off, his jaw is going to be really stiff and he is going to be on soft foods for awhile. They day I got my jaw opened, my friends took me out for pizza...I couldn't even open my mouth enough to take a bite...soooo disapointing!

any secrets to a great tuna fish sandwich?

I take it out of the can and squeeze in my hand like you would with frozen spinach. I do not like watery tuna.

Sides to go with seared Ahi

Hi, I am looking for some sides to make with seared Ahi. My sister, who knows how to cook NOTHING, swears she learned how to cook some fabulous seared ahi. She is coming out to visit and wants us to make it for my mom. I am the big cook but I have never made seared ahi...so I am a little worried since I won't be sure how to fix something if it goes wrong. But, I must have faith!!! Anyone have any great ideas for sides that we can make along with this meal? Thank you in advance.
