WHO'S THAT GIRL: A higher education obsessed foodie who is documenting her life in the kitchen. I love to cook delicious, gourmet-style foods for those I love and always welcome a challenge in the kitchen. With that challenge comes an impromptu nature. I tend to avoid following recipes to the exact, so you are not likely to find very many posted here. Being that I am a Libra and am learning to be free in the kitchen, the story always goes, "A pinch of this and a smattering of that!" Thank you for visiting -- and happy reading!

Simple Dinner without Compromising Flavor

Having spent a good two hours -- or more -- working on my poster presentation (My project was accepted for presentation Friday and Saturday!), I set out to toss together a dinner.

I had been craving corn and spinach. I boiled the corn in water with a hint of Bragg's. The majority of the time I do not care for salt or butter on my corn. But Bragg's adds the perfect amount of flavor. Quite nice, and nutritious.

The spinach required some work. I could not believe the amount of mud on the leaves! I take this as a good sign, not matter the extra exertion.

Then I pan fried the leave with some chives and garlic and a couple teaspoons of olive oil.

I also grilled a pork chop. We still had some of those double cut chops, so I cut them in half, seasoned the two of them with salt and pepper and put them in a marinade with teriyaki sauce and Mama Sita's marinade before tossing them on the grill. Good stuff -- semi sweet and slightly syrupy. Turned out to be a quick and easy treat.

  1. I just love to see a person being so creative. To me, that's the whole purpose of being a serious foodie.
