I'm going to be honest with you all and say that we are having a hard time finding some authentic and delicious Asian cuisine here in AZ. Have we found Asian food here? Yes. Is it always delicious? No. Lots of trial and error going on here. We have yet to find a teriyaki joint … Continue reading Chicken Fried Rice
I love Asian food so much but cooking it? Not so much. I feel like a lot of the recipes I find call for 700 ingredients, many of which I'll only use once.

My boys love this with broccoli, green beans, bell peppers, onions, zucchini and Yukon potatoes however, one of my boys hates cooked onions and … Continue reading Italian Chicken And Veggie Bake
My kids love 'cornitas' as they call it! My Instant Pot makes this dinner unbelievably easy and the flavors are to die for! Perfectly salty, juicy and tender meat with a crispy edge makes these tacos stand out. Costco sells high quality pork roasts in individual packs of four for around $20-25. (I heart Costco!) With super … Continue reading Instant Pot/Slow Cooker Pork Carnitas
