Ever since my co-worker introduced me to chicken pad thai a few years ago, I’ve been hooked. There’s a restaurant across the street from our office that has some of the best pad thai I’ve ever tasted. I’d never made the dish before, so I decided to give it a shot. This recipe came pretty close to our local spot, and it was delicious!
These barbacoa tacos are a must-make. I think I ate the leftovers for a week straight. The tender and juicy meat paired ridiculously well with the crisp and sweet pickled red onions. This recipe makes enough for an army, so be prepared to have a ton of leftovers, or plan on serving the tacos at a dinner party!
So, there’s a chance I’m going to marry this fried chicken sandwich. It is the epitome of perfection, with its juicy and crispy chicken, spicy mayo, crunchy slaw and toasty, buttered bun. I made these sandwiches the other night for my boyfriend and good friend, and they both gave the sandwich two thumbs up. Luckily, there were leftovers, so I’ll be enjoying this for lunch today. :-)
Happy Friday! I hope everyone has a nice and relaxing three-day weekend, and a lovely Valentine’s Day tomorrow!
I’m a little late to the game, but wanted to share the chicken wings I made for Super Bowl Sunday. This was my first time making wings, and though time-consuming (the frying process took forever!), they were SO good. Not a wing was left on the tray!
My brother, Andy, gave me Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill cookbook for Christmas and I’ve already made a handful of recipes from the book. Needless to say, I’m obsessed. Everything has been incredible so far, including the meal that I made on NYE. This short rib recipe didn’t let me down either–it was deeeelicious! I decided to make some cilantro oil as well, to give the dish a pop of color.
It’s finally Friday!! Even though work has been super busy, this week went by painfully slow. I’m looking forward to the long weekend and plan on indulging in this banana trifle tonight. :-)
For some reason, I’ve never made Indian food. After making and eating this delicious chicken tikka masala, I wonder why I waited so long. This dish was so good, with just the right amount of spice! I’ll definitely be making it again soon.
Happy New Year! I made this incredibly delicious (and time consuming!!) pork tenderloin for New Year’s Eve dinner and it was an absolute hit. Not a drop was left on anyone’s plate! I highly advise splitting the workload up into two days, since the sauces can be made a day ahead. :-)
I can’t believe Christmas is only a few days away. Fortunately, I only have to buy one more present, and already wrapped all of my other gifts–that’s a first for me! Considering the past few months have been extremely busy, I’m really looking forward to relaxing at home with family for the next couple weeks. :-)
