When I was younger — probably 8 or 9 — I struggled with the limited array of fish, vegetables and fruit served around my house. While we ate a diverse selection of meats and poultry, vegetables were limited to standard salad vegetables, corn, peas, green beans, cauliflower and broccoli. Occasionally there would be a Brussels […]

I’ve been cooking almost daily. I love cooking so that’s a chore I totally don’t mind doing. And there are several great benefits to cooking at home, instead of getting take out or going out. For one, a meal made at home is cheaper than one in a restaurant. That’s always a good thing. For […]

On New Years Eve, we had a fun visit from an old and dear friend of mine, and her family. Then we ate Chinese food (Shawn’s tradition) and rang in the New Year watching The Next Food Network Star (I think I want to be the next star!). On New Years Day, Shawn had to […]

I like vegetables a lot. But what I don’t like is boring vegetables — just steamed or boiled and thrown on a plate. I don’t think that does the flavor of any veggies justice. It’s just like cooking with any kind of meat or fish: sure, you could just grill it up and throw a […]

Sign of the times? Italian Panko Steak

Sign of the times? Italian Panko Steak

| November 12, 2007 | 1 Comment

Maybe it’s a sign of the times or something. When I was grocery shopping recently, I picked up a box of Panko crumbs and bought them. Only later did I realize that they were in fact Italian panko.
