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 […]

October 27, 2010 by andrea | Comments Off on Pasta Bolognese | Filed in Beef, Italian, Main Dish, Pasta, Quick Cooking, Recipes

This recipe for Pasta Bolognese is from a chef at the Culinary Institute of America, the world’s premiere culinary college. It’s rich, hearty, meaty and a perfect pasta dish for these cool, autumn evenings. The recipe calls for 6 ounces of pancetta but my container only had 4 oz., so that’s what I used…I didn’t […]

Pork and Broccoli Lo Mein

February 2, 2010 by andrea | 4 Comments | Filed in Asian, Main Dish, Pasta, Pork, Quick Cooking, Recipes

This quick and easy Asian-flavored dish is perfect for a weeknight meal. I followed the recipe except for adding some red bell pepper that I needed to use up. The fresh linguine I used worked great, but next time I’ll try the recipe using fresh Chinese noodles. Pork and Broccoli Lo Mein -recipe from America’s Test Kitchen 30 Minute […]

This fried rice is a delicious blend of sweet (pineapple), salty and savory (soy sauce and hoisin sauce). Plus, it’s super fast to make so it’s a perfect weeknight meal. I used pork tenderloin instead of pork chops, and two cups of leftover steamed jasmine rice. The Asian chili-garlic sauce I used says “Sweet Chilli Sauce” on the […]

Make-Ahead Sweet & Sour Cocktail Meatballs

December 14, 2009 by andrea | 2 Comments | Filed in Appetizer, Beef, Pork, Recipes

Every party needs a few meaty appetizers to keep the festivities rolling. That’s why I brought these Sweet & Sour Cocktail Meatballs to a party recently. Sure, you can buy store-bought meatballs but I thought these were delicious and worth the effort to make (they are firmer in texture than some spongy, store-bought types). Plus, you can […]

Even though I use my outdoor grill 12 months out of the year (yes, even during the long, rainy winter months here in Oregon), it’s still nice to have a good rib recipe that doesn’t require stepping onto the back deck. This recipe uses boneless country-style ribs and calls for doing something I’ve never done […]

Spicy Sichuan Noodles

September 19, 2009 by andrea | Comments Off on Spicy Sichuan Noodles | Filed in Asian, Main Dish, Pasta, Pork, Recipes

This is so good! noodles and ground pork mixed with a spicy peanut-flavored sauce. Yumm! I thought the dish had a nice amount of heat. To make a mild version, leave out the red pepper flakes. Instead of serving the noodles with the sauce ladled on top, I just mixed it all together in the pot and […]
