Drunken Noodles

One good thing about Dizzle’s travels is that he often comes home with tales of delicious dishes. The latest is drunken noodles. He was hooked, and now that I’ve created it at home I’m totally sold. OH YUM. The noodles are wider, so it’s different than our usual pad thai, maifun, or bean threads. I […]

Menu Board

This is what has been on our menu board the last few days. I already made the Indian meal for the inlaws, and that was a success. I’m happy to nail down a new recipe in the twice baked potatoes with a samosa flair. We tackled the “school soup” yesterday. This was a project at […]

African stew: We love this new addition to the rotation around here. It’s a thick spicy tomato stew with all sorts of hearty additions  like edamame, kale, and even peanut butter. Laksa: This delicious thai noodle soup is another regular. Mushrooms, tofu, coconut milk, ginger, lemongrass, scallions, cilantro….mmmmm. Stuffed acorn squash: I’ll admit to having […]

Summer Rolls

My absolute favorite lunch lately is still summer rolls. (I was calling them spring rolls, but I noticed sometimes these are called summer rolls when not cooked. Whatever.) Dizzle turned me on to these, and I can’t get enough! There is a decent amount of prep work, but I’ve gotten in the habit of doing […]

Panang Curry

This version brought the heat and was super tasty. We’ve been using a Korean hot pepper paste to heat up the curries lately, and I recently switched from a level 3 to a level 4 “very hot”. Yes!

Curry is always on my stand-by list when Dizzle returns from a trip, and red is usually the #1 choice. I’ve also got panang on the brain. It was SO good last time. This time I’ll try a mushroom/potato/carrot combo. While eating solo I somehow managed to create my worst pad thai ever. All I […]

Pad Woon Sen – Take 3

Let me just start by saying that I am at the end of my noodle supply, and these are no longer available on Amazon. What?! This experiment might require an indefinite hiatus after this attempt. Sigh. Also, the tomato intended for this dish did a bad thing and went rotten overnight. That meant I had […]

Panang Curry

Love this curry. The panang is so different from others. It has the spice of masman with a heat like red curry but more subtle somehow. I’ve only done this once before with red pepper and tofu. I wanted to try different veg and decided on carrot and pea pods. As usual this wasn’t totally […]
