52 new recipes in 2011: Hot-and-Sour Seafood Soup from

K. liked it. I didn’t. Of course, K. likes hot and sour soup and I don’t, so that might be why. I thought the broth was odd.

All natural, vegan, nut free snack bites filled with bananas, sunflower seed butter, oats, Kamut flakes and a hint of maple syrup, with a nice sweet chew from dates and raisins and a crunch from a toasted sesame seed coating. Made these for my food demo class today – such a fun, simple and QUICK recipe you can make with the kids after school (and better than a cookie!)

Sesame Drumsticks with Balsamic Honey Glaze

Sesame Drumsticks with Balsamic Honey Glaze

Another Giada de Laurentiis recipe from her show Everyday Italian on Food Network… Chicken drumsticks baked on high heat and glazed with a balsamic honey sauce. Topped with sesame seeds and freshly chopped parsley.

The sakura bowl is from a place in Shibuya which I believe is called Afternoon Tea.

“Never Enough Nuts” Filbert Cake

When Andrew and I caught an episode of Ultimate Recipe Showdown on the Food Network a while back, he mentioned (several times!) that having a hazelnut-chocolate cake for his birthday would be amazing. I figured I would simplify the ingredients and method, as well as throw in a good dose of hazelnut oil and Nutella to bring the initial recipe (for Triple-Hazelnut cake) into Quintuple-Hazelnut status!

The Diner

The Diner

The Diner at 213 E. Main Street is a Norman fixture. Mark Amspacher started it in 1996 and ran it until his death in 2010. He operated the famous Amspacher’s Grocery & Deli on Lindsay Street across from the OU campus prior to founding The Diner. Mark was known as a champion chili cook and chili was a staple in The Diner’s fare. My favorite breakfast was the ‘Tamale Breakfast’. It wasn’t on the menu, but was a couple of tamales with fried eggs, chili, cheese and a few green onions on top and served with hashbrowns. Guy Fierie’s "Diners, Drive ins and Dives" featured Mark in 2009. The Diner is still open and run by Mark’s daughter, but the place is just not the same without Mark’s huge hulking body wrapped in a tie-dyed T-shirt and a big infectious smile on his face.

If you wish to view the DDD episode visit…

If you want Mark’s famous Southside Chii recipe it’s on the Food Network visit….

I often ate there and turkey hunted a few times with Mark, he was a fun guy who really enjoyed life and loved people.

RAW, PS Elements.
