Grilled Meat and Late Summer Vegetable Salad by Nadalyn

Grilled vegetable salad with meat, okra and peaches #grilled #salad #okra @mjskitchen

 

Due to a kitchen remodel I’ll be without a kitchen for another 2 weeks, so I’ve asked some friends to keep my virtual kitchen going with some of their fabulous recipes. Today I have someone that I have known and loved all of my life – my sister, Nadalyn. This is the sister who inspired me with my Chunky Gazpacho that I posted a while back.  Nadalyn and I have always been very close even though we have lived more than 1000 miles apart most of our lives.  We both have a passion for food (I think that’s a family gene), we love to cook, and have cooked nightly for our families most of our lives.

When Nadalyn accepted my invitation to share a recipe I asked her to do something with okra, something she cooks quite often when she can find it fresh.  I don’t cook okra because neither Bobby nor I like it, but I do know that a lot of my readers like okra, so I wanted to have at least one okra recipe in my kitchen.  I do have to admit, that after seeing her recipe it makes me want to grill up some okra!  So without further ado, here’s my lovely sister.

Spring Rolls with Soba Noodles and Cucumber by With a glass

 

Due to a kitchen remodel I’ll be without a kitchen for a few weeks, so I’ve asked some friends to keep my virtual kitchen going with some of their fabulous recipes. This week Sissi of With a Glass dropped by and brought some delicious spring rolls!

I can’t remember how long I’ve been visiting Sissi’s blog, but I do remember that the first time I landed there I knew that I would be back again and again and again – and I have!  Sissi never fails to WOW me.  She can make just about anything and does! Her recipes range from homemade ketchup to Hungarian stew, Kumquat Vodka to Easy Shrimp Dumplings .   One of the things I love most about Sissi’s recipes is that they are not intimidating.  Anyone can make them and they all look delicious!  So when you head over to Sissi’s site, be prepared to spend some time there, because once you start surfing, you won’t be able to stop.

It’s all yours Sissi!

Masala Chex Mix by Ramona

 

Due to a kitchen remodel I’ll be without a kitchen for a few weeks, so I’ve asked some friends to keep my virtual kitchen going with some of their fabulous recipes. This week Ramona from Kitchen Simmer (aka Curry and Comfort) dropped by and brought me a batch of nostalgia; however, as Ramona always does, she added her signature seasonings and made it extra special.

If you don’t know Ramona, then you need to change that! 🙂  I’ve been following her blog for quite a while and have made several of her dishes – all of which were wonderful!  One of the best things I love about Ramona, is that she is fun!  You can read it in her writing and see it in her food – she’s having fun and just loves spoiling us all with her wonderful recipes!

So please give my good friend Ramona a warm welcome.

Cucumber & Onion Salad with Smoked Salmon

 

Due to a kitchen remodel I’ll be without a kitchen for a few weeks, so I’ve asked some friends to keep my virtual kitchen going with some of their fabulous recipes.  My first friend is Su Anne, a very special person in my life. Su Anne and I met in college back in the 70’s and she is one of those friends that you have for a lifetime.

Shortly after Bobby and I moved to New Mexico, Su Anne moved to NM, a different town, but only an hour away.  She met a wonderful man, married, and settled down – sort of. 🙂  Every time we get together, we talk food, cook food, and eat food; therefore, the perfect friend to get this series started.
