Recipe: Chicken Satay Salad

This is a really delicious salad even though I’m someone who usually doesn’t like savory applications of peanut butter. This has just the right amount of heat and sweet that makes it delicious. My suggestion would be to prepare everything ahead of time except the rice noodle and just make these right before you serve…

Recipe: Crunchwrap Supreme

Since there’s no Taco Bell here in Estonia I’ve got to make do by making my own weird junk not-quite-Mexican food. Never mind that I’ve never had a Crunchwrap and I’ve been to Taco Bell exactly once in my life, it seems like a noble goal. This is basically an upgraded strange version of a…

Recipe: Kreplach

These are really delicious and you can speed up the whole process if you use store brought stock or just make a really big batch and freeze the kreplach dumplings separate from the soup. I do have to admit this is a chore to make all at once and takes a LONG time to come…

Recipe: Hainanese Roasted Chicken

I make roasted chicken every now and then but I never posted a recipe for it because there’s not much to it. This is the first roasted chicken I feel compelled to share because it’s extra delicious and has just enough steps for me to feel like it might be a recipe more than just…

Recipe: Fleischnacka (Meat Snails)

This is a pretty unique recipe from the Alsatian region in France. It’s what you’d get if you combined stew, pasta, and a wrap all at once. While it does take a bit of time I found that you can freeze the rolls and then simply cook them right from the freezer which means this…

Recipe: Chili Fries

Take french fries (or really, in this case roasted potatoes) to the next level by adding chili on top of it. This comes together surprisingly quickly and can be topped with anything from cheese to jalapenos and ranch if that’s what floats your boat.

Recipe: Stout Braised Chicken Thighs

This is a pretty interesting stew. Using Guinness (or other stout) gives it a deep, nutty richness. The stew come together with very little effort but I still think I prefer chicken when its stewed in other things. The sauce on this one is also very thin so if you’re looking for a stew with…

Recipe: Peri Peri Chicken

This is just a delicious marinated chicken dish. It’s got a nice amount of spice to it but isn’t too overwhelming. This was a big party pleaser and it’s easy to prepare a lot. It’s probably especially nice if you have a grill but I used the oven and it worked out fine.

Recipe: Chicken Tamale Pie

I can absolutely tell you that this was delicious and it was just about the ugliest thing I have made in ages. In the future I would probably add some jalapenos and made diced up onions and peppers to it but this was a big hit as is.

Recipe: No Fry Sweet and Sour Chicken

I really love this recipe because frying is just a bridge too far for me most days. I understand most people don’t fry because of health but for me it’s mostly just laziness so if you want the delicious taste of sweet and sour chicken but less work – this is the recipe for you.
