I did not grow up on anything outside of good ol' american food. I mean really, while my mom is an excellent cook and isn't pick much at all...she married a husband who is and who suffered from loooooooots of heart burn. So She didn't ever put onion, or peppers in much of her food. She raised kids to appreciate all food, and all veggies- so as we have gotten older all of us have not been afraid to go outside our "comfort food" type meals and eat ethnic, or spicy, or "funny looking..." I think . . .
These are a favorite, and super easy. You might as well buy a few of the ingredients- cause once you make it, you won't be able to stop!! It really is so easy and yummy I made it for my lunch one day. And of course very healthy. Hoisin Sauce can be found in the Asian isle!! I got it at most stores- Albertsons, Fred Meyer, Winco, BUT ironically I didn't find it at our local Walmart. They had the most lame Asian section though. The nice thing about hoisin sauce is it is so flavorful that any . . .
This meal is a staple in our house. I LOVE it. I love how easy it is, how fresh it is, how I always seem to have the ingredients around so when I'm in a pinch or dumbfounded as to what to make for dinner I have this as a backup. The kids not only help eat it but love to help make them. It's full of tender chicken, a little bit of cream cheese, spices and a little more cheese. With a crunchy, crispy, salty crust. If I can remember, I like to put 2 good size chicken . . .
It's all in the sauce with Hawaiian Haystacks! This creamy, flavorful sauce gets a zesty tang with the mixture of toppings. It's a fun dinner, and kids love creating their own! You can make this either in your crock pot or last minute- either way it is a hit. Serve over rice (Coconut Rice is soo yummy). Then add the following to the top: trust me...as weird as it sounds its delicious! * denotes it's a MUST, the rest are just options crunchy chow mein . . .
I based this chicken off the "sweet Pork" from Cafe Rio and that I had Dr.Pepper in my Fridge I didn't want my kids drinking. It turned out SOO good. and So easy. Kids LOVED it. of course they did...its sweet. I like to eat this classic taco style- corn tortilla, pico, guacamole and sour cream. Nate loves it burrito style. filled with corn, rice, lettuce [amd-zlrecipe-recipe:287] . . .
If you want a simple, quick and tasty dinner.. I've got on for you right here. So this is a slow-cooker recipe that uses pork roast. My favorite kind of roast to be honest. I buy the four-pack at Costco and freeze what I don't need right away. Cooking one roast will usually fix up enough for my family of 5 with some left overs. And this recipe was no exception. This recipe was originally submitted to Oh So by one of our friends Stephanie Whipple. (Thanks Steph!) And we fell in love with the . . .
This is a perfect breakfast for Father's Day! Make the night before and pop in the over in the morning. You'll be left with a hearty, gourmet breakfast. The combo of the potatoes, cheese, ham, and eggs are the perfect combination. [amd-zlrecipe-recipe:288] . . .
I love P.F. Chang's & Pei Wei's Mongolian Beef. Over the years we have used this recipe and altered it to how we love it. The flavors are rich and deep, with crispy tender beef over a bed of your favorite sticky rice. [amd-zlrecipe-recipe:240] . . .
These potatoes are a knock off from something we once saw on a food competition. I didn't even wait for whatever show it was to posted the recipe to the internet before I made them for dinner. I just love potatoes- and these, cheese potatoes where can you go wrong? well they don't take much of a recipe in the first place. They're so easy, so creamy, so potato-chessy-perfect-o. So the very next evening I made potato gratin, from a muffin tin. They were such a hit, we have't stopped making them . . .
I made this pulled pork and it was so delicious! My husband said it was the best ever!- well duh it is a Paula Deen recipe. I have adapted it a little to my taste. The liquid smoke part is kind of amazing- that stuff works wonders on meat, giving it an extra dimension of flavor that a slow cooker just can't do. This also makes gobs of food- fed my family of 5 two meals. We are going to start out by making the rub! Mix the dry rub ingredients in small bowl. Rub the rub all over the roast! . . .
