Skillet Sesame Chicken

What are some favorite recipes? Ones that I can make during the week. Often, we have leftovers during the week, but I like being able to make one or two simple meals that are fresh but easy. This is definitely an easy meal that tastes really good.

 

I’ve made other recipes with sesame chicken but I like how you can take the same or similar ingredients and make something that seems so different.

German Pancake

Once again I am bringing a breakfast food we had for dinner…because that is what we often do around here. I’ve gotten around to making more of them for brunch on the weekend, but sometimes it is easier for dinner when I can be louder while cooking (for lunch, the Chiplet is often napping until right before we eat, so I wouldn’t be able to do things like use a blender/etc. This recipe doesn’t look like much, but it was tasty and enjoyed by all of us.

Meatballs with Soy-Ginger Glaze

I’m still playing catch-up on here. This recipe was one I made back in March, but to be honest, it’s kind of nice. I can look back and be reminded of recipes I want to make again. This was an easy recipe and you could follow the original recipe to do ground turkey, but we prefer ground beef.

Sausage Risotto with Balsamic-Roasted Shallots

Here I am with another risotto recipe trying to convince the Fudgelet that risotto is delicious. K and I really liked this, and the Fudgelet ate it, but he was still complaining some. I don’t get it…he likes rice and sausage, he likes them together, and he likes congee which is basically a Chinese version of risotto. Oh well. Anyway, the adults loved it and he ate it regardless.

Tiramisu Pudding Cakes

K and I are welcoming another year of marriage and this was something I made to welcome him home one night. It was really easy to make since no mixer needed to get pulled out and it was small amounts of ingredients, so no large bowls required.

Breakfast Puff Pastry Packets

Today is a simple recipe that was inspired by some puff pastry recipes I found. I ended up doing my own using some Trader Joe’s dough I had stashed away. If you haven’t tried their puff pastry dough, you should. It’s only available around December, as far as I know, and not only is it a great price but it tastes really good because it is all butter like the DuFour kind. But for whatever reason, I like this one better and have had better luck with it. I didn’t realize it was a limited edition kind of product the first year, so the second year I stocked up!

Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie (BraveTart)

We are all cookie monsters in this family. Well, I’m not sure about the Chiplet yet but since he comes from two cookie monsters, it is likely. I don’t discriminate when it comes to the size of the cookies. So, one big cookie that I just press into a skillet and bake? That sounds great!

But why is this one so special?
