Chicken Teriyaki

Sometimes I bookmark recipes and forget about them. This was one of those. You scroll past “chicken teriyaki” thinking, well, I’ve already made versions of that before so why would I make a different one? But I decided to click on it anyway and sure enough, it needed to be made. It was both simple, and slightly different since you cook the sauce and meat separately. It isn’t the usual method but I decided to see how it would work. We ended up loving the sauce. K said he wanted it on everything. It was sweet without being too sweet, and it had a bit of salt to it, but nothing too crazy. When I used beef teriyaki sauce on chicken it seemed too strong. This sauce is perfect for chicken!

Baked French Toast (1 Hour)

Before the Chiplet, we definitely started doing brunch more often. K runs everyday, and he doesn’t eat before his workout so is ready for a nice breakfast in the late morning. The Fudgelet and I will eat breakfast before my workout (where he often joins me) and then are ready for lunch in the late morning. Since our breakfasts are usually simple, we are fine with anything for lunch from burgers to scrambled eggs.

Never-Fail Biscuits (Two-Ingredients)

Do you have a toddler and a newborn and need a quick recipe for biscuits that you can make in the time it takes to preheat the oven? And that includes dealing with a tantrum during the middle? Well, I have a recipe for you. And even if you don’t, and you just want easy biscuits that are buttery and delicious, this is a recipe for you. This is different from my other biscuit recipe which I still love. That one is flaky, while these are more rustic and crumbly. It depends on the type of biscuit you are in the mood for…and also how much time you have.

Thai Basil Beef with Coconut Rice

The other day I went to make the rice part of this recipe and was so sad when I realized I couldn’t find my copy of the recipe. Luckily I tracked it down, and made it differently this time. The first time, I followed the recipe exactly but then the second time I decided to try doubling the rice and keeping the coconut milk the same. It was still creamy and a nice coconut flavor, but allowed us to have more of the rice since that was our favorite part. The beef is also good, don’t get me wrong, but cooking the rice with coconut milk was aaaaaaamazing.

Halloween in February? (Part 2)

I know, it’s Valentine’s Day and I am here talking about Halloween. But you need to understand. I am writing this in October and even if I manage to do something cute or fun for Valentine’s Day, I am not going to be likely to have time to share Valentine’s activities until let’s say Flag Day (ha!). So, I am sharing this while I can and with the idea that some content on here is better than no content, even if it isn’t timely.

Moroccan Meatball Soup

If you’ve been trying to be healthy for the new year, this could be a good recipe for you. It was satisfying but full of vegetables and not full of the foods we should eat in moderation. With a bit of couscous and meatballs, along with some tasty seasoning, this dish is easy and yet so tasty! We all liked it and it is perfect for a cold day or even a warm day since it doesn’t need the oven.
