Menu Board

Laksa was comfort food for Dizzle returning from travels. Chili and cornbread is today’s project, so I’m hoping to post both those recipes. I’ll probably do a couple cornbread waffles and do muffins with the remainder. We’ll also have a salad with greens from the garden including some spicy purple mustard greens. Rajma is new […]

Menu Board – International

This menu board is all over the place, and that’s just how we like it. Indian, Mediterranean, Thai, homestyle goodness. Loving having falafel on a regular basis around here. So easy and so much less of a gut bomb than the deep fried restaurant option. ┬áBonus…the little guy loves this too! Drunken noodles is one […]

Thai Chili Basil Eggplant

Is there a book of menus? That would be awesome. I love reading menus because they can provide fast inspiration. I always tinker with recipes anyway, so menus with ingredient lists are perfect! This menu came from one of Dizzle’s recent trips, maybe to New York? I forget. I had just seen some delicious looking […]

Mango Curry

We attend a children’s group at our local Discovery Museum. Each week has a different theme, and once a month the theme is food. Last week it was all about mangoes. Winner for this little dude who sometimes eats mangoes on a daily basis for breakfast. There was a new-to-us variety, ataulfo mango….which was of […]

Drunken Noodles Recipe

I’ve made this three times now, and I finally have the recipe I like. This is a pungent sauce, not entirely unlike pad thai but deeper and with more heat. This can be as simple as tofu noodles and chilis or include most any veg. Our fave has color peppers, scallions, and some thinly sliced […]

Masman Curry

Masman is one of the go-to meals in this house, especially when warm cozy comfort food sounds good. If we have potatoes, carrots, and onion we’re good to go. Easy. There’s also the curry paste, coconut milk, and all that jazz, but we stay pretty well stocked with those pantry items. This is close to […]

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 […]

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!

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 […]
