Beef Miso Ramen

I’ve never actually made Ramen that didn’t come in a styrofoam cup. This is way more nutritious and heart healthy, not to mention more satisfying to eat. The textures are wonderful! It was so much fun and I’ll definitely be making it again! 4 oz. Flank Steak Pinch of Chinese Five Spice Salt and PepperContinue reading “Beef Miso Ramen”

Surf and Turf Fried Rice FTW! It’s so delicious! I’d love to have smoked the steaks, but time was short, so pan seared was the way to go.

Copycat Panda Express Orange Chicken

I found some rice! It definitely wasn’t what I expected. 🤣 I’d never even heard of Bamboo Rice before. Upon more research I found out that it’s medium or small grain white rice that’s been infused with young bamboo which can give it the green color and adds several vitamins. You learn something new everyday!Continue reading “Copycat Panda Express Orange Chicken”

Copycat Panda Express Chow Mein

Spicy Fried Rice

Fried Rice was one of the first dishes I ever cooked and I’ve made it the same way for over a decade using Minute Rice and a few ingredients. Needless to say, I was getting pretty bored with the same ol’ thing. I decided to revamp it and add some heat! It really hit theContinue reading “Spicy Fried Rice”

Teriyaki Glazed Chicken Thighs

This is my favorite Asian style dish! it’s sweet, tangy and a hit with the kids! I usually serve it with steamed or fried rice and egg rolls. Homemade teriyaki sauce is far superior to anything you can get off the store shelves.
