Living in southeast Missouri, this would be called a not-so-typical typical Mandarin Orange Cake, but in other areas of the United States this delicious dessert is known as something quite different. In the Carolinas, and a few other Eastern states, this would be called a...

Eggnog. It's one of the most delightful offerings of the holiday season and sadly, when January arrives, the eggnog disappears from all the grocery store coolers. Every year I hope that someone will decide this holiday nog will somehow be deemed appropriate for all seasons...

Bacon and soup - what a wonderful winter combination! I am sharing two of my favorite bacon soup recipes with you now ...

Sincerely, who doesn’t love potato and bacon? They are delicious in any combination, but when they come together, it seems nothing can be more appreciated by a hungry family, isn’t it true? So if you have some potatoes and bacon at home, then your meal...

  Taco night is always a favorite dinner ritual for many families, and is a quick and easy meal solution that everybody can enjoy.  While surfing the net, we found a spectacular way to have taco night with a twist that any pork-lover is sure to appreciate – with bacon taco shells.  Having your taco shell made completely out of crispy, delicious bacon strips a unique way to have your tacos and integrate your love for bacon simultaneously!   There are a few ways to successfully craft a bacon taco shell; however the method shared on Dude Foods yields a nicely defined taco shell that’s actually shaped like the traditional shells.  The shell consists of a simple technique where approximately 10 to 12 pieces of bacon are overlapped using a “weave” style technique.  
  I’m sure that if you have visited a Chinese restaurant, you have seen Moo Shu Pork or Mu Shu Pork on the menu. I would call it the original stir-fry wrap. It is meat (specifically pork), scrambled eggs, and vegetables rolled up in a mandarin style pancake.   This traditional Chinese dish was introduced to America in the 1960’s and has been a staple ever since. The origin of the words Mu Shu or Moo Shu is a descriptive term for the Sweet Osmanthus, an ornamental tree that produces small and fragrant yellow and white blossoms. The blossoms look like the scambled eggs used in the recipe.   The traditional mu shu was served on a Mandarin pancake, but many North American Chinese restaurants now substitute Mexican style flour tortillas as the wrap. And so am I.   One of the other ingredients used in a mu shu pork wrap was day lily buds.Those are pretty hard to come by. We are substituting sliced cabbage. I bought a pack of cole-slaw ingredients to use in this recipe. Chinese restaurants also use sliced cabbage in this recipe.
This is a simple recipe that I made up from watching several cooking programs on the Food Channel and PBS. Full disclosure, I watch them all the time to get cooking information and ideas. The famous chef, Jacque Pepin assembled a PLT on his PBS program with aioli as a spread on the bread. On her cooking program, The Barefoot Contessa, Ina Garten assembled a BLT with avocado. However, I will use avocado guacamole in this recipe.   You ask yourself what is the P in the PLT. It’s prosciutto, of course. Prosciutto is a thinly sliced, dry-cured ham from Italy. It’s also called Parma ham. When prosciutto is served uncooked it is called prosciutto crudo. Prosciutto that has been cooked is called prosciutto cotto. I will be using prosciutto cotto in this recipe. When cooked, the prosciutto tastes a lot like country ham. Delicious!
  During this holiday season, you may need to make a fancy appetizer to bring to a party. A mini-quiche is the perfect appetizer. Just about everyone has tried quiche at one time or another. A quiche is described as an open-faced pastry crust dish filled with custard with meat, cheese, or vegetables.You may wonder from where did such a fancy dish come.   While the word quiche comes from the French “kueche” meaning cake, the German word “kuchen” also means cake. Some have argued that quiche originated in Germany. The custard used in quiche actually comes from England. English recipe books The Form of Cury, Custardes of flessh and Crustade written in the 14th and 15th century included recipes for custard.
