Sesame Noodle Salad

Since I don’t have A/C at my home, using the oven really makes things hot. So in the summer, I try to eat a lot of refreshing and cool foods, that don’t require a lot of cooking. I made these noodle bowls the other day and they were delicious. I had a picnic with a…

Vegetable Ramen

I think I’ve said this before but I love to make (and eat) soup. It’s so fun to cook because everything goes into the pot and you end up with this delicious meal. The soup I’ve made today is my take on Japanese ramen. It is traditionally made with a pork broth but I made…

Creamy Peanut Curry

As opposed to my other coconut recipes that used coconut meat, this last recipe used the milk. I love coconut milk because it’s a nice dairy free option that adds so much creaminess to whatever you put it in. I also wanted to make something was a complete meal since I’ve been making lots of…

Peanut Ginger Noodle Bowl

Before I get into this post/new week, I just want to say that last week was a pretty successful cooking week. If you didn’t see my black bean recipes, you can check them out here. This week’s ingredient is ginger which was actually requested by a follower. So if you have any suggestions, let me…

Asian Tuna Noodles

Who knew prepared tuna salad (mayo + seasonings) could be used in an asian noodle dish? Instead of just eating the tuna with like bread or crackers, I wanted to use it in a real dish. I had these noodles – same ones I used in the Tofu Noodle Bowl I just made – along…

Peanut Ramen

I’ve made noodles with peanut sauce so many times for one simple reason – it’s delicious. And super easy. Okay, so maybe it’s two reasons. I made this the other night and it looked too good not to post about. I started with making the sauce in a bowl – natural peanut butter mixed with…

​Vancouver: Chinese Food

Here I am, continuing with travel posts! First stop is vancouver and everyone knows that there is a lot of Chinese food here. We went to a place called peaceful restaurant and the food was amazing! We started with these beef rolls (not pictured) which this restaurant is known for – it was a flaky…

Chicken Stirfry

I made dinner with like 10 ingredients. Pretty good, if I do say so myself.  So from the title, you know I made a stirfry. It had leftover rotisserie chicken, peppers, yellow and green onion, ginger, soy sauce, sriracha, honey and sesame oil. I put all that on top of some egg noodles. And sesame…

Peanut Noodles

Another super easy meal, brought to you by me! This meal was kind of a cross between peanut noodles and a regular stirfry. Just sauteed some onions, carrots and peppers, then add ginger and a few chilis for flavour. Once that’s all blended nicely, add cooked spaghetti (you can use real asian style noodles instead)….
