Chicken Almond Stir-Fry

I'm all about getting dinner made faster. As much as I love food and I love to cook, sometimes I just don't like the every day, "it's almost dinner time, what are we going to eat" thing! You would think as empty nesters that whole thing would get easier, but in fact I think it's gotten harder. I have gotten out of the routine of meal planning like I used to do when the kids were all at home, so I still deal with that last minute scramble of "What's for dinner?" ...more

Showtime's "Homeland" Returns with Gripping Spy Drama (Spoilers)

Homeland is the spy show to end all spy shows. And since I love, love, love a good spy show, I had last night's Homeland second season premiere circled on my calendar. Only Game of Thrones' return last spring had me as excited.courtesy of Showtime...more
LOVE this show. Well-deserved Emmys and Saul better not be the mole! more

So You Think You Can Dance Recap: The Final Performance Show

Welcome to the confusing performance finale of So You Think You Can Dance. Confusing because: Didn't they ask us to vote for these final four after last week's episode? What is going to happen to those votes? Will they be added in together? That makes sense, but they certainly didn't say so. Perhaps they will address next week. I hope so.©2012 FOX Broadcasting Co.

Grilled Veggie Quinoa Salad

Everyone loves a good old fashioned barbecue. The easy conviviality of a family backyard picnic. The smoky summer scent of charred goodies grilling. Lemonade chilling. Badminton birdies sailing. The crack of croquet balls. The last pink of daylight. Punching lids on firefly jars. But if you need to be gluten-free, or if you happen to be vegan, barbecues can be less than convivial. Those mysterious sauces (so often containing wheat-laced soy sauce). Those off-limit fluffy hot dog buns. All those meaty burgers and egg-dotted salads. What's a gluten-free vegan to do? Munch on lettuce? ...more
oh wow, that looks sooo delicious. more
