Seared Scallops, Succotash and Tomato and Herb Salad

Scallops are my favorite. They are basically the steak of the sea. They cook in like two seconds. Prepared properly, they are crispy on top and bottom and literally melt in your mouth. Any excuse to eat them when out or making them at home is taken. These were fresh diver scallops, never frozen. Soooo,…

Pork, Turnip and Sweet Potato Stew

I was going through the dinner food line at my Grandparents house. All the cousins, aunts and uncles were there, so a pretty long line. Each stop in the line fills your plate more and more and it all looks great. I got to the mashed potatoes and gravy and took a pretty good size…

Copycat P. F. Chang’s Chicken Lettuce Wraps

We don’t eat at P.F. Chang’s much any more. Not because it isn’t awesome, but because where it is located. Crazy traffic, crazy people in crazy traffic. We avoid that area.

Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin, Seared Okra and Pimento Cheese Grits

Cuban Chicken Chop, Yellow Rice, Black Beans with Chimichhurri

Here in Greenville, SC, where I live, we are blessed with amazing restaurants. Not just highfalutin, fancy ones, but an amazing array of all kinds. It really is crazy how many and with such variety. One such place has become a lunch time favorite, Tropical Chicken Grill. The food there is Cuban and comes at…
