Sweet and Sour Chicken

Sweet and Sour Chicken

I realize it’s been 2 weeks (!) since my last update. I’ve been busy! We went to Las Vegas last weekend (awesome trip, by the way), and I spent the week before and afterward getting all of my reading and homework done for the meteorology […]

354: Sesame-Soy Meatballs

354: Sesame-Soy Meatballs

For an easy dinner I made Sesame-Soy Meatballs. They were easy to put together. I forgot to get green onions for this. I mixed the lean ground beef with brown sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil, chile paste, and garlic, and made 20 meatballs. I cooked […]

297: Korean Meatballs

297: Korean Meatballs

First recipe of November was Korean Meatballs. I chose an easy recipe so that I’d actually make it, since I’m usually bad about cooking on Monday night after cooking so much over the weekend. It was a simple recipe. I used ground turkey instead of […]

231: Steak and Pepper Stir-fry

231: Steak and Pepper Stir-fry

I had green bell peppers and wanted pepper steak. I didn’t really feel like making American-style pepper steak, though, so I looked for something with a more Asian profile. Unfortunately, one in a cookbook I had took oyster sauce, which I didn’t have and didn’t […]

204: Miso-Marinated Steak with 205: Sugar Snap Noodle Salad

204: Miso-Marinated Steak with 205: Sugar Snap Noodle Salad

I made Miso-Marinated Filet Mignon with Sugar Snap Noodle Salad. Of course, I made this with just some regular cuts of beef, since filet mignon is pretty expensive. The marinade was pretty easy to make. I already had some miso paste in the fridge, so […]

163: Korean Beef Stirfry

I decided to try Korean Beef Stirfry. This is another good example of why I should only practice mindful cooking and take the time to follow the directions. I followed this recipe pretty closely… until I reached the part about adding bagged spinach. I decided […]

159: Vietnamese Beef Noodle Salad (Steak Bun)

159: Vietnamese Beef Noodle Salad (Steak Bun)

I was excited to see the recipe for Steak Bun in Eating Well magazine. I had this in a Vietnamese restaurant a few times, and really enjoyed it, so I was happy to have a chance to make it myself. Unfortunately, this entailed a whole […]

152: Spicy Orange Chicken

152: Spicy Orange Chicken

I was on an Chinese food kick, so I made Spicy Orange Chicken, even though I’d made Asian food earlier in the week. This was easy to make. I made this a while ago, and I’m trying to remember if there was anything notable that […]

148: Kung Pao Chicken

148: Kung Pao Chicken

I hadn’t made anything Asian in a while, so I got the stuff together to make Kung Pao Chicken. This recipe was pretty easy to make. I used white wine instead of sherry, but otherwise followed the directions and used the ingredients it called for. […]

147: Stuffed Spuds

147: Stuffed Spuds

My coworker Sue likes to cook, and she put the recipe for Stuffed Spuds on my desk after I complained to her about how tough it was to find stuffed mushroom recipes (or any other kind of stuffed recipes, for that matter) that don’t call […]
