Copycat Panda Express Chow Mein

I made this for years using expensive Chinese Chow Mein noodles. $4 for 6 oz seemed a bit steep. Especially because I make it every other week. I decided to use thin spaghetti one night and never looked back. 🤣 $1 for 16 oz? Yes, please! So while it might not be 100% authentic, itContinue reading “Copycat Panda Express Chow Mein”

Parmesan Herb Garlic Knots

I had some inquiries about my garlic knot recipe. I use the previously submitted pizza dough recipe, but I’ll include it incase someone didn’t catch the post. This makes a whopping 16 large knots, so halving the recipe would be beneficial if you didn’t want that many. You can also freeze the dough before theContinue reading “Parmesan Herb Garlic Knots”

Copycat Restaurant Refried Beans

This is the closest I’ve gotten to mexican restaurant style refried beans. It’s so stinking flavorful and I make a point of prepping it as a side dish along side salsa rice for quesadillas, tacos, taco salads and burritos!

Fried Rice Balls

So…I messed up. I didn’t rinse my rice well enough for the fried rice I made as a side to go with the Teriyaki Pork Chops from last night. I honestly thought about chucking the whole pot because it was so mushy. Ick! But I hate wasting food and set out to find a wayContinue reading “Fried Rice Balls”

Sweet Relish Deviled Eggs

I never have any leftovers when I make these Deviled Eggs! A friend gave me a tip to make them crazy good! A splash of sweet relish juice! Bare with me, it makes them so amazing! For the best hard boiled eggs, without a sulfury yolk, start with cold eggs and cold water then boilContinue reading “Sweet Relish Deviled Eggs”

Thyme & Curry Butternut Squash Soup

I remember this soup fondly from holidays as a teenager. To this day, I defer to my mom for taste testing and improvements. Seems only right considering she was the first person to make it for me. I LOVE it! Nutty, rich, herbaceous and creamy. It also makes for a great palate cleanser between courses.Continue reading “Thyme & Curry Butternut Squash Soup”

Cherry Chicken Salad

I had a couple of friends over for lunch and decided to make Chicken Salad. I, unfortunately, can’t have the Croissants but it’s still great on it’s own, over a salad or on gluten free bread! This makes a LOT! Roughly 6 sandwiches, so if you’re not serving a crowd I’d halve the recipe. CherryContinue reading “Cherry Chicken Salad”
