These are recipes for simple, easy, homemade dishes. I make no promises about portion size or fat content, etc., but they are dishes that I have prepared and liked. I don't post pictures because I don't have fabulous lighting, nor a great camera. I can promise that I haven't just made things up without trying the recipe and this is all stuff other people have tried and no one spit anything out in disgust. Not yet, anyway! I don't take cool supporting photos of the steps along the way (but wait, are you telling me you are going to cook those nuts in the microwave in that METAL bowl?) but these are real recipes that a regular cook/baker should be able to figure out. I love the work of Deb at Smitten Kitchen - she provides the whole package!!! Good food, witty comments and lovely photos. If you want to see a REAL food blog, check her out.

Orange Beef

My son likes this one also, probably because there is nothing but meat.  I usually serve this with couscous (I don't do rice very well.  It's difficult to make small amounts of rice, IMHO.)

1/2 lb sirloin or round, cut into thin strips
1 T tamari or soy
1/2 T cornstarch
1/4 t pepper
     mix the above together, then set aside to mix the following sauce:
zest of one orange
1" ginger, grated
1/4 c juice from orange
1/2 T tamari
1 t cornstarch
1 T sugar
1 T sherry
1/2 T Hoisin
2 t sesame oil
scallion, sliced for garnish

Saute the beef in a hot pan with oil.  Once most pink is gone, add the sauce and cook until thick and saucy,  Garnish with scallions.
