I have been cooking up a storm lately. And, to spite our lousy produce in Ohio this time of year, I have continued to cook with tons of vegitables. It’s easier to do when your husband loves veggies. The kids…not so much. Just about every night Isabelle tells me my dinner is yucky and begs for some form of rice and chicken. What can I say, my kids are half Indian. I thought I would share some of my all time favorites (lately)
Sweet and Sour Chicken Stirfry
This is literally THE best sweet and sour chicken I have ever tasted. It’s no deep fried, and you can really add whatever kind of veggies you like, but the sweet and sour sauce is out of this world! (Let me know if you want the recipe, it was in a recent issue of Food Network Magazine)
Chicken Pad Thai
It took me forever to find a good Pad Thai recipe, but Conrad and I Love love love Pad Thai. Then it took me a couple of more months past forever to figure out that I can buy rice noodles at my local Giant Eagle and didn’t need a specialty store to get them. I skipped the raddish this recipe calls for and read all of the reviews for some hints on making it, but really…it is FANTASTIC. If you are a Pad Thai fan, you have to try it. Really, it’s as good as our favorite restaurant in town.
I stirred up a simple peach pie filling out of some canned peaches I had and wanted to do something creative with them. So I had seen this recipe on a Bakerella’s website, and I decided to play around. It tasted good, but it was fun to make! Conrad kept telling me how we really should open a restaurant and how these would sell so well in India. I don’t know about that, but it was fun to make little pies in a cupcake pan and decorate each however my heart desires. I think they would be great for a party or buffet.
