Sundays are probably my least favorite days of the week. Since I work overnights, I basically get a half day on Sundays. I'll typically wake up around 3 am, and then be back in bed at 11 in the morning. I get all my cooking done on Sundays, but that's about the only "fun" thing… Continue reading Vietnamese Chicken Salad
I'm a Trader Joe's fanatic. Oklahoma City got its first TJ's a few years ago and I've been making a weekly or bi-weekly trip ever since. Now, Trader Joe's is not my normal grocery store of choice. I usually go there to try out new things, peruse, or buy olive oil. Trust me when I… Continue reading Pork Belly Stir Fry
A true clean-out-your-kitchen type meal. Use leftover chicken or turkey if you wish for this stir-fry that also includes roasted green beans, cabbage, carrots, and everyone's favorite: BACON.

But if you put enough seasoning on it, mix it with a few of your favorite ingredients, and stir-fry it to oblivion---it actually ends up tasting pretty decent. I have been seriously… Continue reading Chicken & Mushroom Cauliflower Fried Rice
My first experience with Thai food wasn't that long ago. I'm a relative newbie when it comes to Thai cuisine. There was a Thai restaurant in my hometown, but it was vastly different than the Thai food I've had since then. I'm thinking that place just called itself Thai, but was more like a dumbed-down… Continue reading Thai Peanut Chicken Flatbread
I made my own sushi rice the other day, y'all. I was shocked. Shooketh to my core. It was one of the most easy things I had ever cooked before. To be honest, I think I cook sushi rice better than I do regular rice. I got a sushi bazooka for my birthday/wedding/Christmas (one of… Continue reading California Roll Sushi Bowl
