Turkey or Pork Fried Rice

April 28, 2011 by andrea | 2 Comments | Filed in Asian, Main Dish, Quick Cooking, Recipes, Rice, Turkey

We love fried rice in our house. Not only do you get all the food groups in one dish (protein, carbs, veggies), it’s also super quick and easy to make. I used ground turkey instead of ground pork and it worked great! It’s important to use cold leftover rice because freshly-made rice will turn into a […]

Although it’s officially spring, the cool weather here in the Pacific Northwest means it’s still soup season. A few days ago I made this super quick and easy Asian Dumpling Soup when I was home with the sniffles. Recipes like this are the reason I always like to have a package of potstickers in the freezer.

Italian Wedding Soup

February 3, 2011 by andrea | 6 Comments | Filed in Chicken, Italian, Main Dish, Pasta, Recipes, Soup/Stew

My first thought was, “Do Italian people really eat this at weddings?” I’m not Italian so it’s an honest question, don’t you think? After a little research, though, I learned that the “wedding” part refers to the fact that the vegetables and meat go well together in this Italian-American soup (hence the marriage). Whatever the history, it’s […]

Roasted veggies can be prepared a day ahead of time and reheated before serving, making them a perfect side dish for the holidays!

I got together with a group of girlfriends from my bible study on Friday to organize a friend’s garage. The friend we were helping is a mom of two young boys and her husband has been in the hospital for several months awaiting a heart transplant. Needless to say, it’s been a difficult season for this family, so a chilly, overcast November day was […]

Ranchero Beef Stew

November 6, 2010 by andrea | 2 Comments | Filed in Beef, Comfort Food, Recipes, Soup/Stew

Beef stew is always a favorite at my house. Sometimes I like to change it up by making Ranchero Beef Stew, a Spanish-inspired dish that features beef simmered with carrots, green chilies, tomatoes and green olives. It’s hearty, filling and and a nice change from traditional beef stew! The recipe states that the stew only needs […]

  This is a great summer recipe because it’s light, cool and refreshing. Be liberal with your use of the fresh mint and cilantro…it brings a ton of flavor to the salad! I’ve made this salad with different types of rice noodles, and rice sticks work as well as rice vermicelli. Whatever type of rice noodles you […]
