  • Skillet Sesame Chicken

    Sesame Chicken just makes me smile.  It is one of my most favorite take out options from my local Chinese restaurant.  What is yours? Better than Take Out The beauty of this sesame chicken is that you know exactly what is going in it and you can change it up as needed.  If you want it a little sweeter you can add in some brown sugar or more honey.  If you want it less, then leave it out.  Want it more acidic, throw in some lime.   So many options.   All in One Pan Once the chicken is marinated (which can be done is as little as 30 minutes)…

  • what happens when a skillet and spinach meet…

    The Sis-in-Law is queen of good and easy sides and she did not disappoint with her latest creation.  They came over not too long ago for dinner and she offered to make the side.  I was thrilled as I was busy with the rib roast and twice baked potatoes, and I knew it would be super yummy and I was right. Super simple but so good When she came walking in she had a bag of spinach and that was it.   All sorts of options ran though my head.  We were going to steam it, microwave eat, eat it raw, but never did I think about a quick sauté.…

You know what I’m talking about…when you take the first bite of the taco and all the best parts (the…
