Baby Bok Choy with Ground Chicken Stir Fry
After a weekend of partying, gourmet eats and running around at Disney World, we’re ready for simple, homemade meals. This past weekend, Scott, Todd/Diane and I hosted our 6th Food Blog Forum event at Disney World (well, it’s 2nd time at Disney, 6th conference overall). I’ll be sharing lots of ...

About Holdaplate While pursuing his MBA, John Zox, formerly a professional musician, began taking design courses to nurture the right side of his brain. Hidden in plain sight at those famed biz school cocktail parties was an unsolved design challenge: how to hold both a plate and glass in two ...
Chinese Daikon and Carrot Soup
I’ve been making a lot of Chinese home-style soups lately – Nathan has been going through some health challenges lately and all he wants to eat is clear soup. My house smells like Mom’s house when I simmer a pot of soup. One most frequently asked questions I get is, “what’s your favorite recipe ...
Grilled Chicken with Blackberry Sweet and Sour Sauce
We don’t get many choices in Chinese restaurants in my town – all the joints are a jumbled mish-mash of Americanized Asian food and they all serve sushi (because it sells really well with high profit margins). Last week, we went to one for lunch and Andrew ordered Sweet and Sour Chicken. The ...
Ducklings learning to swim
The great thing about living near a farm store is that I no longer need to have baby fowl delivered via postal service. The bad thing about living near a farm store is that I just cannot stay away. Last week, the kids and I snuck over there while Scott was out of town [...]
Vegetable Thai Curry Noodle Soup
We’ve been a little distracted for the past week, new babies, another new baby that is just learning how to waddle and getting quotes to build a new fence for animals (sheep! alpaca! bunnies!) Pretty soon, I’ll have to rebrand this site to be “Steamy Farmer” right?! So, dinners recently have been

My parents came to visit us last week, a pitstop on their way to a Transatlantic cruise and vacation. Normally, when they come visit, Mom will call a week before to get “my list” of things to bring – Asian foodstuffs that I can’t buy in my Florida markets but that she can find near [...]

Our 10 hens are happy hens, they faithfully lay around 8 eggs per day and get to eat all the garden veggies they want. There are specific plants that I grow just for them, like my ginormous cabbage that produces leaves as big as a vampire’s appetite. Unfortunately, they also like my delicate ...
Lebanese Roasted Stuffed Onions
At the beginning of our Winter growing season, we planted a short row of onions in the raised bed. I’ve been using the long stalks as “green onions”, just clipping what I need. Some of the stalks grew over 3 feet long, and so we had green onions galore so far all year. They taste [...]
