Quick and Easy Comfort Food ๐Ÿฅ˜ Dishes!

Ribeye , Mushrooms and Friends!

Who knew using marinade could make a thick steak ๐Ÿฅฉ so tender…. that you could tear it with your hands… like a piece of paper!

Just follow the instructions, and marinade in your refrigerator overnight…

I used Grill Mates MESQUITE marinade mix!

I took it out, and set on the stove about an hour before I cooked it… adding other seasonings, and allowing it to get to room temperature.

Feel free to add your favorite seasonings ๐Ÿง‚ to the meat… but hereโ€™s what I used:

Lawryโ€™s Seasoned salt, pepper, garlic salt, pepper.

I cooked this steak on the stove with olive oil. After it was cooked on both sides… I added in the sautรฉ mix… and cut up a bit of fresh onion… with a couple of dashes of soy sauce…… and a little butter

I sautรฉed the mushrooms in a pat of butter…with fried French onions, a couple of spoons fulls of fresh crushed garlic, a dash of pepper, rosemary & seas salt seasonings…

After all the ingredients simmered together…. I arranged it on a plate…. with a salad of: broccoli, bacon, and cranberries… and it was delicious!

Fried Catfish, with Steak Fries!

This is a good ole southern favorite! I let this catfish marinade in a lemon pepper liquid marinade over night.

When the oil was hot enough… I fried each filet until golden on each side… and flipped them over again..to cook until the filets are completely done! โœ…

When I was ready to fry it.. I put the oil in a frying pan๐Ÿณ Let it heat up… while I seasoned the fish filets… with salt, and a bit of garlic pepper.

Next…. I got another frying pan… with about a half cup of vegetable oil. I let the fries reach room temperature… and added them very carefully to the hot oil. When they were golden brown… I put them to a lined dish with paper towels and let them drain.

Side Bar: โšพ๏ธ๐Ÿงข Whenever I go to see the Dodgers Play… at Dodger Stadium… I always get the Garlic ๐ŸŸ Fries at the concession stand to go with my Dodger Dog!!!

Any salt and vinegar potato chip fans around???

Using Vinegar also helps cut the grease… and itโ€™s an added health/digestion benefit…๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝโœจ

I plate these finished pairings… pull out the hot sauce… and DIG IN!!!! ๐Ÿด

Anybody like home cooked casseroles???? Here is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE!!!!

Chicken-Broccoli Casserole

This is so wonderful when itโ€™s served hot. Itโ€™s filling, and flavorful. Thereโ€™s a little story to go along with how I learned about this dish…

I was the weekend Anchor and TV News Reporter at WJBF-TV in Augusta, Georgia.

After a long day of working in the newsroom… I would drive home ๐Ÿก tired from a busy day.

A newly wed couple lived in the apartment beneath me… and would often be out walking… when I drove home into my parking space. We would often exchange pleasantries… and enjoy friendly conversation.

On one particular night… my new friends Valerie and Patrick came out of their place smiling and said: โ€œAre you hungry?!โ€ We just finished making dinner…

The dinner that evening was this Broccoli ๐Ÿฅฆ and

BChicken ๐Ÿ— Casserole

โ€œWhy donโ€™t you come in and join us!โ€ I was so delighted!!! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐ŸฝโœจHow nice for themto invite me to !!!!!dinner!

Oooh Val !!!! This is sooo GOOD!!!! This Casserole is AMAZING

How do you make this??? Iโ€™m definitely making this again!!!

I remember her hazel eyes lighting up… and how genuine and animated she was… explaining the entire process of making this dish!

I have never forgotten that night..and their gracious hospitality …

I keep in contact with Val on social media to this very day! ๐Ÿ˜ƒThis reeasy recipe… All you need to do is mix everything together… add to a baking pan… and pop it in the oven!

Ok… hereโ€™s what you need… 2-4 chicken breasts… depending on how big you want casserole..

One can of cream of mushroom soup ( for two chicken breasts), and two cans for four breasts.

One or two cups of cooked white/ jasmine rice… ( As much…or as little as you want to include your dish.)

Cut up chicken into chunks, Pre-cook fresh broccoli ๐Ÿฅฆ crowns, (1- or two full crowns… just enough to add a nice amount of this veggie to appear visible in the dish. Add in pre-cooked white rice, ( I prefer Jasmine Rice๐Ÿš) and then mix in can(s) cream of mushroom soup…with a couple of handfuls of fried French onions… salt, pepper, garlic powder, seasoned salt flavor to taste..(cut up more fresh mushrooms if you desire..)

Mix EVERYTHING together with several generous dashes of soy sauce.

One all the ingredients are blended together put it in baking dish/pan and add more French Onions to the top of casserole. Bake in oven at 350 degrees

Bake for about 25-30 minutes, ( until everything looks like itโ€™s cooked well.)

Remove casserole from oven, and add generous amounts of shredded cheese on top. Put back in oven… and continue baking for 5-7 minutes… or until cheese has melted.

Let casserole cool a bit… and enjoy!!!! This is one of those all in one meals… thatโ€™s better the next day… and the day after that! These Casseroles also freeze well in aluminum pans. You can store in freezer… pop it out, and place in oven until done.

It will taste just like you made it only minutes before!!! Pure Satisfaction for a hearty, and home cooked meal! ๐Ÿฝ

This next entree is the snack of all snacks!!!!

Super Nachos Supreme!

This crunchy option is also a nice answer for a lunch or dinner….

Iโ€™ve Enjoyed these DAY โ˜€๏ธ and NIGHT! ๐ŸŒ™

Claps Hands! Okkkk…. hereโ€™s what you need:

Nacho Chips… ( I use Tostitos… with a hint of lime! ) The flavor on the chips is incredible with all the other good stuff piled on top!!!

You can use whatever kind of pre-seasoned/ pre-cooked ground meat that you like:

Ground Beef, Turkey, Italian Sausage, or Chicken!

Cut up tomatoes chunks/ or diced tomatoes… add them on top of ground meat of choice, with Salsa… then add shredded lettuce, jalapeรฑos, (black olives… if you like.), and sprinkle cheese on top… ( or… pre-melted cheddar or American cheese.)

This is a very colorful entree, and tasty as well… share with family/ friends or serve for a party, movie night, game night… or the GAME of all games…. The Super Bowl!!!!

This is a great breakfast or brunch option….

And 2 eggs, itโ€™s bacon, spinach, ham, onion, mushrooms, crushed garlic, cheese, tomatoes, peppers, sausage: โ€ผ๏ธNOโ€ผ๏ธ

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿฝ ITโ€™S

โ€ผ๏ธSUPER OMELETTEโ€ผ๏ธ

Whelp! Those are all the ingredients that you need…

Take two… or three eggs ๐Ÿฅš if you like… add some milk, soy sauce, seasonings of your choice… I use seasoned salt, pepper, rosemary, garlic herb special blend.

โญ๏ธ If you notice… I use all the same ingredients in all these quick and easy dishes…

Whisk milk and soy sauce with eggs and add all the other fixings…

Add vegetable oil to omelette pan.. ( just 2 or 3 spoonfuls) turn heat to medium… once the oil is hot… pour in all the mixed ingredients…

One everything cooks together… and firms up… test how well cooked, and solid your omelette is…

Oh! As far as peppers are concerned… I use jalapeรฑos, & banana peppers. Fresh tomato chunks are good… but sun dried tomatoes also taste delightful! ( your choice!)

Check all sides… and underneath omelette to make sure its completely cooked…and in one big solid form…

Now get ready to FLIP IT!!!

Bring both sides together to make the whole omelette, a thick half..

On the omelette half… add shredded cheddar cheese…

Keep on heat… until the cheese is completely melted. Then… scoop up with your spatula… put it on a plate.. and get ready for that first bite! Mmmmm….. enhance this experience by adding salsa… or hot sauce!

You got all the protein and veggies you need in one delectable serving!!!!

Can you DIG ITโ€ผ๏ธ๐Ÿฝโ€ผ๏ธ SHAQ just opened a cool new restaurant… right next to the STAPLES CENTER!

And here it is!

Shaquilleโ€™s is an upscale casual restaurant specializing in Southern cuisine.

Of course… I had to stop by and check it out… I liked the VIBE here… There was a nice crowd inside… and the host staff and servers.. were very pleasant.

My first thoughts were… what a FANTASTIC spot for SHAQ to open a restaurant! Tons of tourists are always in the area… not to mention great sporting events with the Lakers, Clippers, Sparks and Kings having sold out games all the time… –plus-, all the great concerts, movie ๐ŸŽฅ premieres, Awards Shows… and other high profile events.

SHAQ has SCORED another GREAT BUSINESS DEAL!!!!

Oh, I forgot to mention… a pretty cool thing to know…the stage for sports commentators… is usually set up on the side street.. between the restaurant, and Staples Center…

Sooooo…. If SHAQ is doing some sports commentating with one of the networks… you might catch him in action… close to his restaurant. #HighFive!!!! ๐Ÿคš๐Ÿพ

The second thing that came to my mind was… SHAQ obviously picked his favorite comfort foods… which I also thought was pretty great.

Good Stuff! A lot of my favorite foods included! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ

Mmmm!!! There’s Fried Chicken on the menu..

Mac and cheese

Deviled Eggs

Sliders

There are only two burgers on the menu, a Shaq cheeseburger and an actual Kobe burger

Also…fried green tomatoes, shrimp and grits, corn pudding, and Banana Pudding.

Most of the entrees are pretty standard fare with pan-roasted salmon, roast Jidori chicken, flat-iron steak, and shrimp ceviche..

Shaquilleโ€™s curated beverage program includes a wine vault, local draft beers

(only Southern California beers are on tap. Modern and classic cocktails are available, 

with an emphasis on bourbons and whiskeys.

The NEW place to be… is in the heart โค๏ธ of downtown LA.. in the hot ๐Ÿ”ฅEntertainment spot LA Live.

LA Live… of course.. is right next door to the STAPLES CENTER… which means it is always a lively location.

The restaurant includes a private enclosed patio.. near the main entrance with modern designs inside to easily transform the guest experience from day โ˜€๏ธ to night ๐ŸŒ™.

The restaurant is open daily for lunch and dinner with extended lounge hours.

Hours are Sunday through Thursday from 11:30 a.m. until 10 p.m., and stays open until 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.

Good Afternoon, 

Thank you so much for attending a recent taping of โ€œSTEVEโ€ in Los Angeles, CA. We hope you had a great time!

You must be available to tape Tuesday 3/19 between 7AM-12PM at the Universal Studios Lot in Universal City, CA. 

Here’s what we’re looking for:  

Do you watch Uncle Steve everyday because you love his advice? Do you wish you had a front row seat for Steve’s advice and tips? Are you single?  Do you need dating advice from Steve Harvey? If yes, please e-mail a recent selfie (no headshots), and your contact information to us by Monday 3/11 at the latest.

– You have a hard time dating

Martha Stewart Food and Wine ๐Ÿท Experience…is a BIG HIT with LA Foodies

SAVOR. INDULGE. ENJOYโ€ผ๏ธ

The 2018 Martha Stewart Wine & Food Experience… was presented by USA TODAY.. at Los Angeles Center Studio…Saturday, December 1, 2018 from 1:00 pm โ€“ 4:00 pm (VIP Entry.. was at 12 noon)!

What a way… to start the holiday season! An exquisite table setting…instantly put me in a festive mood. Let the Christmas soirรฉes….and dinner parties BEGIN!!!

It was a glorious day… in downtown LA! I savored every delicious bite…in the GRAND TASTING EVENT… with hundreds of other foodies…

The highlight of the afternoon… was catching MARTHA STEWART in action on center stage! She prepared food… and answered questions from the audience.

The culinary QUEEN ๐Ÿ‘‘ talked about the importance of preparing fresh and delicious food from scratch.

Martha says she NEVER uses anything from a can!

I heard that loud… and clear!

Soooo…. I made my way right on over to the fruit & vegetable cart.

During a candid conversation with her audience… Martha even talked about making food for her 4 dogs… She says she uses all natural ingredients…( including fresh fish)

After the food is mixed by hand… or prepped in a blender … She stores it in small containers in her freezer… until needed.

When asked about what gives her the greatest JOY…

Martha says she enjoys baking most…

She gets great pleasure out of making homemade cookies, and pies with fruit.

–Especially apples.. ๐Ÿ ๐ŸŽ picked from the trees.. around her home.

Fine Cuisine, Comfort Foods, Appetizers, Desserts, Wine, Beer and Cocktails… were prepared by local and national chefs and mixologists.

Mixologists were making spirits โœจBRIGHTโœจ with lots of cocktails! ๐Ÿน

These are Smooth & rich pina coladas! ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฝ

… And of course…Everyone made time…for wine!๐Ÿท

This chef… was whipping up shrimp ๐Ÿค & grits with a special sauce!

These culinary Kings… were serving up gumbo!!!

My eyes ๐Ÿ‘€ LIT UP…..

when I saw this HUGE POT!๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฝ

It was hot… and delicious with PLENTY of mussels & shrimp!

The spice was nice… and gave it a nice kick!

Adding another level of flavor to food is serious!

People loved tasting these olive oils & fine Balsamic from LunaOlivo

Here are photos of several other savory selections featured at this CULINARY AFFAIR ….

Foodies noshed on everything from pasta, steak, tacos, fish, sushi to…pizza and bbq selections… and more!

Cooking demonstrations are always a great way to learn new recipes… and updated methods to make food prep easier… and More tasty!

Guests also explored the ultimate Martha Stewart Experience…featuring the very latest from the lifestyle leader…

Martha & Snoop Dogg have cooked up a hit show!

Martha also has a wide variety of products on the market. Quite a few available on AMAZON.

Her EMPIRE Now including a clothing line……

and

shoes ๐Ÿ‘  available at PAYLESS!!!!

We also had a chance to enjoy arts and crafts on the scene!

I’m hand painting a cooking apron! ๐Ÿ˜„

There were Grateful House interactive demonstrations… donut decorating ๐Ÿฉ guacamole making… coffee/ cappuccino tastings…and live entertainment!

I had a wonderful day! โ˜€๏ธ This event is scheduled during the most wonderful time of the year! ๐ŸŽ„

Having this wine and food experience in December… gives us lots of ideas… for holiday entertaining, and making delectable bites for friends and family!

Here a wishโœจfor a hearty and flavorful year ahead!
