Take a breath……relax….enjoy.

I got the feeling that you all enjoyed the picture of the “Beach Portal” last week, so thought I’d share yesterday’s picture. I took my visitors on a nice morning boat ride. This small island is just South of Naples, FL. It’s called Keewaydin Island. It’s narrow and there are just a few homes sprinkled Read More

How do you use IF?

On Rusty’s blog there is a give away for Brad Pilon’s new book. His first book “Eat Stop Eat” is one I highly recommend.

Low heat, yet easy and quick.

Cilantro, basil and garlic chimichura?

I’m not sure what to call this concoction I make, but try it. It’s easy to do and your grilled steak dinner will blow you away. In the magic bullet (it’s a really useful tool to have in your kitchen arsenal) I combined a small bunch of fresh cilantro, about 6 large fresh basil leaves, Read More


It could be right? A portal to FEEL GOOD RELAXATION 😉 This is the kind of spot that you don’t get to if you are a visiting tourist. A tiny, hidden, public walkway nestled in between 20 million dollar beach front homes. I did not eat much this weekend. So thought I share a few Read More

The pictures show how easy this is. Bed of onions in the crockpot. Next discard the marinade, pat dry and give it a spice rub. Read More


This has to be one of the easiest breakfasts to make. And a good change of pace if you are fed up with your regular egg breakfast options. In an oven proof skillet, quickly saute some veggies and meat (salami is especially tasty) in butter or bacon grease. Whip 3 eggs (you can add a Read More


I had marinated some skinless chicken thighs in thai spices and coconut milk.Tossed it in my hot electric skillet with sliced onions. I need propane for the grill, otherwise would have used the grill. I cook on my lanai with the electric skillet. There’s something about cooking outside…..Chicken was served over a nappa cabbage slaw. Read More
