Honey Chicken and Lo Mein

Honey Chicken and Lo Mein

While the picture (actually of our leftovers!) doesn’t do it justice, I made Crispy Honey Chicken, Lo Mein and Fried Rice. We LOVE PF Chang’s and the kids love the honey chicken, so I thought I’d save money by doing it at home.

While it was a great idea and it was tasty, the time spent was not worth it. The process was quite labor intensive and multiple pots were used creating a heavy clean up process. However, the lesson is that you don’t always have to go out. Some of my favorite restaurant recipes I’ve recreated for a fraction of the cost simply by Googling the title of the dish, the place it came from and ‘recipe’. So often we sit somewhere thinking “I could make that” and it’s true! However in this case, I think will head to Pei Wei next time!

Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies

These yummy cookies were created from Jessica Seinfeld’s Deceptively Delicious cookbook and they include, drum roll, chickpeas! They were very easy to make (though a bit messy when you add the chickpeas to the mixer) and you really can’t tast them once they’re in there. Just don’t let the kids watch you as you’re making them (or your husband for that matter!)

i tried to make pad thai at home once and it tasted great but was such a mess to clean up, i used every pot/dish i owned!! Glad to see you are getting some use out of that cookbook. I use mine all the time. The sloppy joes and aloha kebobs are my faves! I made the peanut butter muffins once and Dave didnt like them but Danny did!
