Thai Chicken Zucchini Boats is a low carb dinner recipe that’s easy to assemble and fun to eat! Have you ever had a week where you feel like everything is being thrown at you all at once?? For me, it was one of those weeks. I decided to move away… Read More
We’re just getting into the month of July and can you believe it, back to school stuff is ALREADY being promoted on TV, in retail stores and online market places. I mean, really??!! If I was kid, just thinking about summer being over in 6 weeks would give me major anxiety. The last thing I would even want to think about would be getting ready for school… well unless it meant shopping for new clothes. But besides that, I wouldn’t want to think about it.
I think part of me is still on vacation mode. I’m still living out of my suitcase. The smell of sunscreen is embedded into all of my clothes and I don’t mind. And I’m feeling the need to turn every piece of fruit in the house into some kind of frozen beverage.
Ummm yum. This is my 3rd recipe of Buffalo Flavored food this week. And I’m totally not sick of it yet. Buffalo flavored food gets a lot blog time during football season and man friendly posts. I’d had a fun time “healthifing” popular buffalo recipes, like Spicy Buffalo Chicken &… Read More
Last Friday, we went out to dinner to a local Thai restaurant not too far from our home. It’s BYOB which is always a perk! The food was great. Service was interesting…. We had two different servers, both didn’t have a handle on what we ordered. It just felt kind of chaotic. In the end, we’ll probably order carry out from them so we don’t have to deal with the service again. Or I can make this Thai Chicken Noodle Salad instead. It was pretty amazing!
Ever wonder what to do when you have one piece of chicken left in a package? If you live with more than one person, looking at one chicken breast and trying to figure out dinner can be a challenge. I guess you could freeze it, but I dare you to look into your fridge and see how many frozen pieces of chicken you already have. For me, I have probably about 6. I don’t need to make it 7. And I’m glad I didn’t take the easy route… because I came up with Asian Chicken Burritos with Sriracha Peanut Butter Sauce. And turned one chicken breast into 4 meals.
Earlier this week on The Tasty Fork Facebook page, I asked what kind of recipes you’d like to see on the blog. One of the responses was from my bloggy friend, Lisa. She asked for more vegetarian recipes. I got to thinking I haven’t posted one in a while, so why not! The weather is starting to warm up, people want to use fresh ingredients and not be standing over a hot stove just to get a meal on the table. This Orzo salad recipe is a vegetarian’s delight and will make the meat people in your life happy. It’s so colorful, how can you not smile at it??
Isn’t it great when you can have an amazing home cooked meal with very little effort?? And it’s even better when the recipe is comforting. I made beef short ribs in a slow cooker and I loved it. It was the perfect meal after a busy day.
Most times, cooking short ribs means lots of oven time…sometimes up to 4 hours. I don’t know about you, but I certainly don’t have time for that! Short Ribs are very dense and when they’re cooked just right, it’s the most fork tender rib you’ll ever find. Seriously, when I was ready to eat these Ginger & Soy Beef Short Ribs, I didn’t need a knife. Just by digging in with a fork, the meat tore apart.
