Beef and Asparagus Stir Fry

An easy meal that could be made any night since you can marinate the beef a day or even two days ahead of time.

Wayback Wednesdays: Spaghetti Carbonara

Now, I should say that this wasn’t completely a redo of the spaghetti carbonara recipe I shared before. However, it is quite close. I basically combined my old recipe with a different one I found.

Tips-y Tuesdays: Stir-Fried Green Beans

I decided to make this a tips post instead of a regular recipe post just because it is more simple than a regular recipe. Anyway, I have been trying to perfect my green bean cooking technique, and I think it is still a work in progress, but I am willing to write down some of my main ideas I have learned.

Molly Yeh’s Spiced Chicken Pot Pies

I definitely like pot pies and always have. When I was a kid, if a restaurant had it on the menu, I usually ordered it. Oddly enough, this twist on a pot pie is actually a version I might prefer over the traditional. I really like the flavors with it.

Corned Beef Sides: Mashed Potatoes and Cabbage

If you’re making corned beef, you probably want to feel fully Irish and make some potatoes and cabbage. You can make mashed potatoes however you want. I actually thought I had shared mashed potatoes on here before. I have no idea how I haven’t. Since I don’t have pictures to show, I will have to make them again soon (I have plans to make them for Father’s Day this year) and take pictures to explain. Although, I have different ways to make mashed potatoes if I am making them dairy-free, if I have a potato ricer or masher handy, with a mixer…I have done them lots of ways. My latest favorite way is with a masher, but the other ways work too, if that is what you have.

Pea Pesto

I have not always had good luck with pesto recipes. Mostly, mixing in different nuts or flavors has not worked well for me, so I usually stick with the traditional ones instead. Well, I am glad I branched out with this one. It was so delicious. You could appreciate that it wasn’t the same as regular pesto, but it was in a good way.

Sauteed Bok Choy

During this pandemic, one thing I have had to do more is cook with ingredients I haven’t before. Sometimes my grocery store has been well-stocked with vegetables, but often I have to pick from our non-favorites. There was a time when I was wanting baby bok choy, and they didn’t have any….but they did have regular bok choy. I decided to try it. When I asked K later about why we never buy it, he said it is a lot dirtier and often not fresh/tender. So, we would probably still prefer baby bok choy, especially since it has more of the leafier parts, but I was surprised that bok choy was also good.
