Momma’s Recipe: Asian-inspired noodles

These are AMAZING! My mom makes them all the time for outdoor BBQs, quick dinner sides or for when I come home to visit and want food to take back to Boston with me. And they’re SO easy.

Boil as much pasta as you want. Regular spaghetti is usually best. During the last two minutes of boiling the pasta, add frozen peas and carrots. Strain the pasta, pea & carrot mix. Add sesame oil, teriyaki sauce, one clove garlic and chives or scallions. Toss together for a super easy and delicious lunch!

I feel like someone could actually make these on their own quite simply!
A bag of Ruffles, a bunch of melted chocolate and come bacon crushed up into little bits.
Dip the chips into the melted chocolate halfway and stick them on a baking sheet covered with waxed or parchment paper. then sprinkle the crushed up bacon on top! Put the baking sheet in the refrigerator to set the chocolate and you’re done! Instant deliciousness. Probably cheaper, too.

I’ve heard of people taking food they love and combining them in “unique” ways  – stories of pregnant women combining pickles with watermelon, ninja turtles scooping ice cream onto their pizzas, etc – but I hadn’t tried a too outrageous amalgamation…until I was introduced to a thick ruffled potato chip that was coated in a rich chocolate and sprinkled with a healthy topping of mesquite bacon and red pepper flakes. Sure I’d had and made cupcakes topped with maple icing and bacon on top, but that was like a breakfast dessert, something that made sense in my mind (hint: I added Canadian-made Spice Box whiskey into the maple icing to add a nice vanilla flavour to the sauce). This chip was a different story. This chip was a colossal cacophony that worked wonderfully.

Hand made by The Chocolateria, these delectable snacks put a nice unusual spin on treats…a spin…

I normally don’t like lemonade unless it has another flavor involved (raspberry lemonade is my fav). Thyme sounds like an interesting addition to a summer classic! Might have to add some vodka to this one…

Mama's Gotta Bake

As I was driving down the main thoroughfare in my community today, I spotted a group of kids, I would say about 10 or 11 years old, yelling and waving frantically at me to stop.  They had set up a lemonade stand with an array of handrawn signs, on the corner of this particular intersection. How could I drive by this group of young entrepreneurs without purchasing the product that they had obviously spent hours concocting. I would be forever known as “the mean lady”.

When I pulled over to the curb and got out of my car, I could see sighs of relief on their tiny faces. Yes! A customer. I ordered up a glass of their homemade brew, and when I opened my wallet to pay, I realized I had just blown my entire wad at the supermarket on this evening’s dinner.  Oh geez, was this really happening…

Pinterest recipe: Cilantro Dipping Sauce

These things were SO awesome. I did a little semi-homemade kind of deal with them because I was strapped for time, but regardless – this recipe is awesome.

I bought turkey meatballs in the freezer section of Trader Joe’s and just used those. They were a little bit on the larger side once they were cooked so I just cut them in half and stuck wooden skewers that one would normally soak and use as kebab sticks.

But the star of this little appetizer that I made for my boyfriend and my Easter dinner was the cilantro dipping sauce.

  • 1/4 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup fat free Greek yogurt
  • 1 small jalapeno, seeds removed, leave them in if you want it spicy
  • 1/4 cup of fresh cilantro
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 scallion
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1/2 tsp dried parsley flakes
  • 1/8 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Dez said that the sauce tasted exactly like the dipping sauce he used to serve when he worked at a lovely Mexican restaurant in Nashville. He said they served it cold, but I actually liked it a little warmed up.

Try it out! And definitely let me know what you think.

I found this recipe off of Pinterest and I am an absolute Pinterest addict. Just another recipe to check off of my “Nom Nom” pin board! I can’t wait to make all of the recipes that I pin!
