is so delicious! I have been wanting to make it for quite awhile but
never had a reason too. Nick's parents visited last weekend and so I
used it as the perfect excuse to make some. It was quite delicious and
probably one of my most favorite desserts, I would probably make it more
often if ladyfingers were easier to come by.
'Tis the season for squash. I bought some butternut squash to make Butternut Squash Macaroni and Cheese and had some left over. I have bought frozen butternut squash risotto from Trader Joe's before but since I had some squash left over, I decided to go for it myself. This was absolutely delicious, very rich in flavor and that is why the spicy shrimp is a perfect contrast companion. This is a great meal to impress others with.
Nick decided to make dinner the other night, he chose a recipe out of the cookbook I bought him, CookWise, that explains the chemistry involved with cooking and the hows and whys about cooking. This recipe was very delicious and he cooked it perfectly.
One of my most favorite soups is Zuppa Toscana from Olive Garden. I love the overall flavor with the kale and sausage. Recently after I did a brief cleanse for 4 days, I begged Nick to take me to Olive Garden to get some endless soup and salad. I ordered Zuppa Toscana and I was a tad disappointed because my first bowl was from the bottom of the barrel with barely any kale and my second bowl had way too many potatoes. After that experience, I decided the best way to get this soup from now on is to just make it myself, especially since a bunch of kale is much cheaper out here in the MidWest than it is back at home. Anywho, I made it this time around and it was the perfect soup to ring in the Fall.
When I was unemployed I enjoyed watching Food Network and getting all kinds of ideas for new meals. That is where I found this recipe. I watched Melissa d'Arabian make this recipe and I knew I would have to give it a try. I have never had canned salmon before and the ingredients listed in this recipe made me want to give it a try. This is a budget friendly meal since canned tuna usually costs under $3 and it feeds at least 4 people, therefore $3 for the meat in a family meal is pretty dang good. Well in the end, both Nick and I really enjoyed these salmon cakes and I will definitely do it again.
So the truth is, I kinda failed at making this well but I really like the picture I took of this meal and so I thought I would share it anyway. This meal still turned out ok, but I failed at frying the noodles enough and adding enough soy sauce to make it taste like real chow mein. So my recommendation is to cook the noodles well and don't be afraid to season well. Once I find a better recipe I will post it.
This is a great recipe I found somewhere. I think a friend had it linked somewhere and I kept it on my computer for a week until I finally decided to make it. This is a delicious crock pot chicken recipe with some Asian flair. In the end with all the components in place, we had some Teriyaki chicken bowls. This is definitely a keeper, especially since I am a working woman again.
