No time for suhoor, but you need something hot in your tummy?

Sweet & Sour Beef

final - sweet and sour beef

I don’t make Asian food that often at home, but I really do love it. I recently had a real craving for sweet and sour something- whether it be seafood, beef or chicken.

Just as I’m a huge fan of many French dishes (particularly the peasant food from the south), I’ve also always loved the very classic French Onion Soup, or “Soupe a l’Oignon”, as the French say it. My mom made it at home a couple times but we mostly enjoyed it at some of the great restaurants where I grew up eating out ...

Growing up in small-town Ohio I had a lot of opportunities to see how things were made, whether they were apples into apple cider at the local orchard, fruits into jam at a small nearby farm or potatoes into potato chips at the area’s largest food factory, it was all part of the things kids did on a field trip ...
