Chicken Fried Rice

I spent a portion of Mother’s Day making this delicious chicken fried rice for our kiddo. It is one of the few things that he actually loves and I typically make a large batch (as in triple the recipe below) to freeze so that all we would have to do for future meals is thaw […]

Malaysian Nasi Lemak

O.M.G. Everything is so delicious and goes fantastic together! The hours of toiling to make the sambal and the body aches afterwards are well-worth it after all! Lol. Behold the Nasi Lemak dish… Recipe for the fragrant, rich coconut rice can be found in a previously published post – Nasi Lemak (Coconut Rice). Alternatively, you […]

Chicken Rendang

Last Sunday, I finally decided to use the homemade rendang paste I had stashed in the freezer since January…of this year (I’m not that terrible of a procrastinator…I think).

Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Curry

Wow! We had a -10ºF temp. with a wind chill of -38º overnight! It was definitely the coldest I’ve ever experienced since I’ve been here. We survived the night, thankfully! The house is still intact – the roof did not come down on us despite all the weird noises it was making. :D And most […]

Chicken in Black Bean Garlic Sauce

Okay, here’s part of my Sunday schedule…woke up, got ready, did grocery, rushed home, put chicken and sauce in slow cooker (Keith put away the rest of the grocery…thank goodness), stuffed my face with a quick lunch (not pretty), rushed to work, came home, ate yummy chicken. :D So, let’s have a big round of […]

Rotisserie Chicken Porridge

Another busy week flew by…due to the lack of time in our lives, I often cook in huge quantities (enough to last us several meals). It’s not exactly an ideal situation but at least we get to have a home-cooked meal most days. Usually, I would make something tried and true, of course. It has to be […]
