Thai beef salad

Thai beef salad

And some time back I revisited some of my old mini cook books (of course they would be mini), and found a recipe for Thai beef salad just sitting there all pretty, waiting to be cooked. With a few minor adjustments of course! I customized […]

Stir-Fry Mixed Vegetables

Stir-Fry Mixed Vegetables

I just love the explosion of color on the plate. It actually makes vegetables look yummy. Not to mention the variety of textures there are: the soft sponginess of mushrooms, crisp broccoli florets, ridged baby corn and crunchy carrots. Pretty simple stuff. Remember to add […]

Grilled Sriracha Hot Wings

Grilled Sriracha Hot Wings

These hot wings will make your mouth water. Seriously. If you don’t believe me, grill them up yourselves and then come back to me after you’re done salivating. It has the magic of Sriracha with other stuff to give it a decent depth of flavor: […]

Balsamic glazed salmon

Balsamic glazed salmon

I took the flavor profile from slow cooker balsamic roast. And before you think “Ugh, balsamic vinegar…wouldn’t that be too sour?”, I’m here to let you know that mixing it in equal portions with brown sugar really balances out that sourness and makes a heavenly […]

Beef stroganoff

Beef stroganoff

Beef stroganoff. It’s a pretty simply thing really. Beef steak smothered in a semi-rich creamy sauce, thanks to some sour cream. Lots of mushrooms and onions. And fun, spirally, spongy egg noodles as a filler so you’re not just shoving meat in your mouth like […]

Creamy Sun-Dried Tomato and Spinach Pasta

Creamy Sun-Dried Tomato and Spinach Pasta

It seems the right time to bring this creamy pasta to the table. It has sun-dried tomatoes and lots of fresh baby spinach but this creamy vegetarian pasta is anything but boring! So today’s recipe is a fun one! Now you can use just about […]

Maple Glazed Chicken

Maple Glazed Chicken

Chicken breasts can be pretty boring. I usually cook with boneless, skinless chicken breasts so there’s no magical crispy skin that I get to steal from everyone later. They really don’t look at good as thighs and certainly aren’t as juicy. But they’re cheap and […]

Honey Garlic Chicken Skewers

Honey Garlic Chicken Skewers

As usual it’s only five ingredients to make this happen and less than 30 minutes of cooking time to enjoy the food. There is some time for marinating but I like to think of that as downtime in cooking. Go mingle with your cookout guests, […]

Honey Garlic Shrimp Skillet

Honey Garlic Shrimp Skillet

So here we have a super simple honey garlic shrimp recipe, all done in the comfort of your skillet. It’s yummy, it’s healthy and oh so easy to make. When I say super easy, I mean five ingredient easy and less than 15 minutes cooking […]
