Stir fried Bean Sprouts and Tomatoes


Bean sprout has been one of my favorite vegetables of all time. It can be cooked in many ways and it is also the best company for many main dishes like noodles, fried rice, etc. This is another quick stir fry dish that I made using bean sprouts and other left-over ingredients in the fridge. I like to use high heat when it comes to stir-frying, it takes only minutes and TaDa.. delicious and healthy dish is ready. Enjoy…. 🙂

Bacon & Egg Casserole

Prep time: 5 mins
Cooking time: 40-45 mins

Breakfast for dinner. This is sort of like quiche, but a lot easier to make. I had to use up some eggs, some lonely potatoes, and some remaining bacon, so this recipe was a no-brainer. If you have more vegetables in your fridge, a chopped red or green pepper wouldn’t go amiss.

Feeds 7.


  • 12 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • Half-whole pack of bacon, chopped
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 2 large potatoes, peeled and chopped into small cubes
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • Green onions, if you got ’em, chopped
  • 1 brown onion
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Chop bacon and fry until crispy. Set aside on some paper towel.
  3. Cook onion and garlic in the bacon fat until translucent. Set aside to cool.
  4. In a large bowl, mix together the eggs, milk, chopped…

Meatball Stew

How I Cook — by Graham Stewart

DF094798-5452-400F-9647-F014DD10D66CThis is another recipe that has been in the parking lot for about 40 years. The original recipe is in a very old Culross cookbook and is something my wife made when my niece Maureen was at our place for supper. We look at the original recipe and didn’t have everything to make the Culross version so used what we had. It turned out to be a very good supper with our version, but we will make it again using the original recipe. The reason we will make the original version is just to enjoy the memory. You can use your favourite meatball recipe to make the meatballs, which my wife made just after lunch. Because the meatballs are cooked in advance the cooking time is less than a normal stew

20 cooked meatballs

2 carrots chopped

1 onion cut in 6 wedges

1 turnip cut in chunks

Pork Steak In Onion Gravy, Good But Not Healthy

How I Cook — by Graham Stewart

EF3DC352-1A53-49A8-979A-0859FE244107This recipe when the kids were little was something I would say we had every other month if not more often. Over the years it became something we have maybe once a year, but it has been at least 2 years since I last made it. My wife and I both like it but it isn’t what I now consider a healthy meal. It’s made with a packaged product that is very salty. Over the years, purely by accident, I guess I have become a healthy cook. My cooking became healthy because I just liked making everything myself, and wanted fresh ingredients. Now that way of cooking has become the norm of what they consider healthy cooking and eating. So my warped mind years ago brought me to now what is now considered healthy eating.

Actually this recipe was on the back of a package of Lipton Onion Soup Mix…

Sweet & Sour Pork Buttons

How I Cook — by Graham Stewart

CC19F4E2-BFD1-4898-AF38-3737A63B0AE7Pork buttons or pork button bones are a great thing. They are something my wife and I totally enjoy having for supper. They’re easy to cook and are always tender, as the name implies they just have a little bone that looks like a button. I was thinking about them this morning because I was making them for supper. Realized that I haven’t seen them in grocery stores in other cities, made me wonder if they were just a Winnipeg thing. There are somethings that are, Old Dutch onion and garlic chips are just in Winnipeg. Which is a shame because they are great. I have never really gone hunting for pork buttons in other cities, but I do know if I had of seen them, I would of bought them. You don’t have to have them as sweet & sour pork buttons, other sauces will work with them. I…

Pork With Lots Of Zeal Changed A Little

How I Cook — by Graham Stewart

97CC36D5-4F7A-46C9-9FA1-C6A1EA2919DDPork with lots of zeal is an old recipe that was parked for to many years. I made it this January and it got one of the 2 great compliments from my wife, she said it was delicious. She asked me to make it again so that was our supper tonight. Thing was I was missing two things from the original recipe, so I made a couple of little changes. Since I don’t run to the store just because I am missing something, now it’s modify and hope it works. This wasn’t a big part to change and it still got the big compliment from my wife, it was still delicious. Yes I wish I could of run to the store but we play the hand we’re dealt. The original recipe posted Jan. 23, 2020 has white wine and parsley which I didn’t have. So I replaced the wine amount…

Sheet Pan Roasted Vegetables


Recently, I’ve been posting recipes for sweet treats, so here’s a healthier recipe to balance that out! 🙂 I try to be good about eating my veggies and I eat raw veggies with dip every once in a while, but my favorite way to eat veggies is when they’re roasted. I just love them that way! They’re so easy to make—just cube or chop the veggies into bite-sized pieces, coat with an olive oil/balsamic vinegar/herb mixture, spread them out on a large sheet pan, and roast in your oven.
