Farewell to Arizona Coyotes with a Southwestern Green Chile & Pork Stew

May 27, 2012 by


We just got back from a week in Sedona Arizona where there are at least 4 or 5 hockey fans. We couldn’t get the game on TV at the Resort where we were staying so we found a sports bar. There were 10 or 12 people waiting for the game to start. It was shown […]

Game Day No-Fry Eggplant Parmesan

April 1, 2012 by


Perfect recipe for a Los Angeles King’s game day. This is easy as well as healthy and totally delicious! You can make the whole thing ahead of time and put in the fridge. Decide when you want to eat – I put this in the oven before the third period –  add a salad and […]

Game Day Crab & Goat Cheese Ravioli

March 19, 2012 by


Putting this recipe together before the game is a lot of fun. But the best part is it only takes about 10 minutes to cook and get it on the table after the game. Ravioli made from won ton wraps are easy – simply plop your rich and creamy no-cook filling in the middle of […]

Red Hot Macaroni and Cheese

February 29, 2012 by


So, the KINGS are on a roll. What that means is that they won last night. Next step…the CUP.  Okay, they do have a way to go but it’s still possible. And here’s a recipe you can make in advance then pop it in the oven and enjoy the game while it bakes. This is […]

Italian Meat Loaf

February 16, 2012 by


  Here’s a really good and easy recipe that can be made in the microwave. I cooked it in a 350 degree convection oven for 1 hour because I don’t do microwave cooking. But I have enclosed the directions for both in case anyone prefers microwave cooking. It turned out super moist and delicious. Sometimes […]

This is a good, simple, make ahead meal. Just add the shrimp 5 minutes before you sit down to eat. It seems like a lot of ingredients but the whole prep time is only 20 to 25 minutes. Then it cooks itself for about another 25 minutes. 1 lb. fresh or frozen deveined shrimp 1/2 […]

Mini Bacon and Egg Tarts for Game Day

January 8, 2012 by


These little tarts are great made ahead so you can nosh during the game. The recipe can be doubled, tripled or you can make as many as you have muffin tins. Omit the green onions if you prefer, but they do add color and flavor. 8 slices of white or whole wheat sandwich bread, crusts […]

Noreen’s Split Pea Soup

November 27, 2011 by


Now that Thanksgiving is over, the choice was to make Pea Soup from the Ham bone or Turkey Soup from the carcass. I chose the Pea soup for a couple of reasons. I LOVE it and it’s sooo easy. 2 tbsp. butter 1 cup minced onion 8 cups water 2 cups ( 1 lb.) green split […]

Pot Roast with Mushroom Gravy 1 lb. small potatoes 2 cups fresh baby carrots 1 (8-oz) sliced mushrooms 1 med. onion, cut in 6 wedges 2 stalks […]

Ministrone Made Easy

November 4, 2011 by


Here’s a take on a classic soup that usually takes hours to make. My version which is short and sweet and tastes like it has been simmering all day. Saturday night the game starts at 7:30 and a nice pot of soup with some crusty bread is the way to go. This soup also freezes really well. […]

My sweet dinner during the game…

November 1, 2011 by


Noreen is wonderful enough to put up some receipes that can be prepared before or during the game without missing any of the action. Very important! So I wanted to share mine from Sunday, Kings v Colorado.  We lost, but my dinnner was good!     Beef and Pork Ribs, Smashed garlic potatoes and sauteed […]

It’s the Kings time to shine ladies. Now that baseball is over and basketball is on hold, it’s a great opportunity for the Kings to be featured everywhere, especially on the west coast. This morning my local paper here on the central coast actually had a 1/2 page in the sports section on all the […]
