There are very few meals that I make more than once. It's not that I don't like what I'm making, it's just that I'm constantly having to make new things so I can blog about it. Most normal people have a handful of recipes they keep in their dinner rotation. That's things like meatloaf, roast… Continue reading Turkey & Green Bean Stir-Fry
Moo Shu is something that I've never had before in my life. It's not a staple of American-Chinese restaurants in Oklahoma or Texas. I believe it's mainly an East coast thing; brought over by Chinese immigrants and exploding in popularity in the 1960's. The dish never really made it past the Mississippi River.

Whip together a Chinese classic. It's better than takeout, cheaper, and probably quicker, too! Cashew chicken has all those great flavors mixed together: cashews, ginger, soy sauce, sesame oil, and more.

I also made matters worse by busting out the grill pan and grilling up some bratwurst for lunch. The grill pan and brats produced a lot of smoke; I… Continue reading Thai Almond Zoodle Bowl

If you're trying to eat better, eat healthier---the easiest thing is to throw a meal together in a bowl and chow down. I'm constantly experimenting with my bowl-making skills. Banh mi bowls, anyone? Shrimp bowls with ranch… Continue reading Korean Turkey Bowls
It's official, y'all. Spring has sprung. The smelly white flowers are now blooming on the Bradford Pear trees, effectively trumpeting in the start of the new season. Bradford pears are actually the worst. They only live for 25 years, their limbs snap easily, and though being "infertile"---they can cross-pollinate with other pear trees and turn… Continue reading Sriracha Teriyaki Meatballs
