Italian Noodles

This recipe was great. It was fast and easy to make which is great for a weeknight or weekend meal. Plus, it has all your veggies, meat, and carbs in one dish so really you can't beat that. Now Ive never been to Italy so I cannot verify if this truly is "Italian" but it had good flavors nonetheless.

Honey Mustard Sesame Chicken

I have been on a recipe slump lately and haven't really been trying anything new, which isn't always a bad thing.
Anywho, here is a recent recipe that we tried out and really liked. I know, its chicken. Everything I post about is chicken. I can't help it if we like chicken a lot :)
This recipe is pretty simple and has great flavor. I always like when recipes have a dipping sauce because it allows me to control how much extra "zing" I want to go in each bite. I also really like the combination of almonds and sesame seeds in the coating of the chicken. They go REALLY well together!

Spaghetti Meat Sauce

On my way to church yesterday for some reason I started thinking about spaghetti. Kinda strange since it was 9:00 AM, but I couldn't get spaghetti out of my head all day. I just happened to have some ground turkey sitting in my fridge that I WAS going to make some stuffed peppers with but instead decided to whip up a homemade meat sauce instead. It turned out great! It involved ingredients that I had in my pantry and fridge, throw it all on the stove and let it simmer together to make a fantastic flavorful sauce!

Autumn Salad

If your in need of something light and fabulous tasting then this recipe is one that you have to try. It uses a lot of ingredients that a lot of people have on hand and is full of flavor. Leave off the chicken for a nice side salad or throw it on and make it a nice light meal. I love how there is so much crunch and flavor in this salad. I will definitely be having one of these for lunch again today!

Honey Walnut Shrimp

Oh my. I couldn't even wait until tomorrow morning to post about this one! I have tried making this recipe quite a few times and never could get the sauce to taste like the kind they have at Panda Express. Well....I've figured it out.
This is my all time favorite dish to order when we go to Panda Express. Yes I realize spending an extra $1 is a lot of money especially when you only get like 4 shrimp...maybe but I love it. I love the crunchy candied walnuts and the sweet sauce on the shrimp..mm..mm.mmmm.
Like I said before, I have tried a few different recipes that I have found online and been given by friends and family and I didn't care for the sauce that much because it had way to much mayo for my liking and the flavor just wasn't quite on. So I played around with the ingredients and measurements a little bit and I think I got it right.
I hope you like it as much as we did.
