I have never been a fan of Martha Stewart. In fact, for a long time I had a real dislike for her. That tempered a little when she went to prison a few years ago for something I thought she was a scapegoat for. Had she been a man, I believe she would never have spent a day in jail. But she kept her head up high, did her 'time' and came back stronger than ever.
But I digress. Mainly the reason I never cared for her was that she made so much look so easy. Whether it was cooking, remodeling or crafting, nothing was a big deal. I always thought, yeah, it's easy when you've got a staff and tons of money.
One day this week as I sat waiting for the oil to be changed in my car her morning show was on the TV in the the customers' waiting area. She had a segment on stir fry cooking. One of the recipes she prepared in 'real time' was Stir-Fried Honey-Ginger Chicken with Peppers over Jasmine rice.
It looked simple and tasty. Last night I made it for dinner and it was terrific. It was also the first time I've ever intentionally used one of Martha Stewart's recipes. It's a recipe I call a keeper.
Thanks, Martha, and sorry.
