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.

Sweet, Sticky, Spicy Chicken

All I can say is - even my son likes this one!  (probably because there are no vegetables or starches, just chicken.)

1/2 T b sugar
1 T honey
2 T tamari (soy sauce)
1 t gingerroot
1 t garlic
1T hot sauce (Sriracha) - to taste
2 chicken breasts
1/2 T oil

Mix the first 6 ingredients and set aside.  Salt and pepper the breast, and slice into very thin strips.  Heat the frying pan until quite hot, then quickly drizzle in the oil and add the chicken.  Saute briefly until only a little pink remains.  Drop the heat to medium, add the sauce and simmer for 8-10 minutes, stirring, until the sauce has reduced and the chicken is sticky.
