Hear we go again!  Another Star Wars movies was recently released.  Yes Disney's Han Solo movie is a Star Wars story, meaning it's not part of any of the Star Wars trilogies.  Instead it's a stand alone movie designed to enhance or explain the major characters or story lines.  In this case Han Solo's beginings.  We all wondered about his early years before he joined up with the Rebel Alliance, didn't we?

Sesame Tofu Side Dish

What is Tofu and is it good for you?  Tofu is coagulated soy milk in short soy bean curd.  The curd is then pressed into a block and is used in many different Asian and Vegan dishes. I use it in my stirfrys and egg rolls.  I feel that tofu with its soft cheese like texture makes a great protein substitute or addition.  I think the verdict is still out on whether or not Tofu or bean curd is healthy or not. I've read arguments for pros and cons.  I don't pay too much attention to them as ...

Memorial Day Barbecue Ideas & Recipes

Memorial Day rings in the first days of summer which means it's time to fire up the grill!  Many folks like to take advantage of the summer months to bring entertaining outdoors.  I'm fortunate enough to live in Hawaii where it's always summer so we do most of our entertaining outdoors year round. Barbecues can be as simple as throwing burgers and dogs on the grill or as elaborate as grilling ethnic specialties.  You can grill just about anything, meats, seafood, and veggies.  If ...

Beef Kabobs in Vinaigrette Marinade

Grilling is always fun.  We have a family barbecue every Sunday.  It's lots of fun and a great way to catch up with each other after a busy week.  One of the problems I run in to is finding new recipes to grill.  Sure hot dogs, burgers, and steaks are easy, but every now and then we need a change. That's why I'm always in search of a new barbecue recipe.  I like to try them out during this weekly family dinner, and if everyone likes it we make it part of our menu. Last month I tried ...

Boneless Beef Short Rib Kalbi Kabobs

One of our favorite food is Korean Kalbi, or barbecued beef short ribs.  We usually order this at one of the local fast food Korean restaurants, but it's pretty pricey; you get 3 thin short ribs, a couple of scoops of steamed white rice, and a choice of 4 side dishes (kim chee, bean sprouts, tofu, etc.) for a over $12 a plate. My husband's main complaint about the local restaurants isn't the the price or the serving size of the kalbi, it's about the flimsy plastic utensils they provide ...
