Hey, guys! Valentine’s Day is just around the corner!



Cut the steak into bite-sized pieces and brown on all sides in a little butter or oil in a Dutch oven or large frying pan with a lid, sprinkling with garlic salt and pepper to taste. Set the beef aside. In a little more butter or oil, sauté the onions and mushrooms until limp. Add the beef cubes and the gravy and blend well. Flavor with the herbs and the Worcestershire sauce and blend well again. Cover the pan and simmer on top of the stove for 45 minutes to an hour, stirring frequently, until the beef is tender. If the mixture is thickening too much, add a little wine. Serve over rice.


1 lb. shrimp, peeled and deveined

1 1/2 T butter or margarine

1 1/2 T olive oil

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 tsp. dried oregano*

1/2 tsp. dried basil*

1/8 cup fresh chopped Italian parsley*

1/2 lb. pasta, cooked al dente and drained

Blend the butter and oil in a large fry pan together, heat to bubbling. Add the garlic and spices, if desired. Sauté the garlic gently, do not burn it. Add the shrimp. Turn up the heat and sauté, until the shrimp turn pink. In the meantime, cook and drain the pasta and place in a large, heated bowl. Pour in the shrimp mixture and toss. Serve with plenty of freshly grated Romano or Parmesan cheese and freshly ground black pepper.

* Herbs are optional.

You can substitute 1 1/2 lbs. bay scallops in this recipe and have a magnificent creation. It’s all what you like! Any dry white wine, a salad and a good bread would make this a meal to remember!

  • GinaNoemugpic.jpg Growing and cooking with herbs

    We all want to eat food that tastes good. One of the most common ways we tend to make food taste good is by adding salt. Unfortunately, most American diets are too high in sodium. Diets high in sodium can raise blood pressure, which can lead to many major health issues including heart disease. Herbs provide a great way for us to limit our sodium intake while still consuming flavorful foods.

  • Shop your refrigerator, part two: Casseroles

    Last article, we wrote about making soup out of leftover ingredients you have around the house. With this winter giving us one more round of snow early in the month, a hot bowl of soup turned out to be a good way to stay warm while staying home.

  • Let’s have a Mardi Gras party in Kentucky

    It’s the time of year when the people in New Orleans celebrate a festival called Mardi Gras. Many states now do the same. Some call it “Fat Tuesday” which I have never understood till I went to New Orleans (five times) and saw all of the excitement for myself.

  • Beat the winter blues with meatballs

    When it’s this cold outside it’s nice to warm up with some good comfort food.
    I can think of few things more wonderful than the smell of simmering meatballs coming from the kitchen while I cuddle with my two young children, and a few good books, on a brisk winter day.

    After the kids come in from building snow forts and making snow angels, I like to have big cup of hot chocolate with extra marshmallows. But if you really want to indulge after playing in the snow, try these melt-in-your-mouth cookies.

  • GinaNoemugpic.jpg Keeping food safe during emergencies

    Today’s article is one I have submitted before, but the information in it is worth reading again.
    The food in refrigerators and freezers represents a significant investment. Winter storms can cause power outages that may last from a few hours to several days before electricity can be restored.
