Asian cuisine can be as varied as the cultures in Asia. Because there are so many variations and specialties, cooking Asian food can be overwhelming for newbies. Typically, when one says Asian, Chinese cuisine is what quickly comes to mind. But there is more to Asian cooking than stir-frying ingredients in a wok. Asian food […]

I absolutely love Asian recipes, along with Asian flavors and ingredients in cooking. More than anything, these choices make food that much more interesting and exciting – often adding in a complexity that you wouldn’t find elsewhere. There are also so many different options to choose from, including Japanese, Chinese and Taiwanese food, each of […]

Another Asian classic done perfectly in the slow cooker. Treat your friends and family to an authentic bowl of Vietnamese noodle dish with this recipe.

What better way to win the hearts of our company than to prepare for them a plate of delicious comforting fried foods? All the better the dish be shared among friends, so this is a recipe that is a favorite to get passed around parties and all sorts of gatherings.
If you love Asian food, then learning how to make lo mein is a must. The broad idea of how to make it is pretty easy: boiled noodles, stir fried veggies, and a tasty sauce to top everything off. Actually, I just read that one of the main differences between chow mein and lo mein is that the latter is sauce focused.
Personally, I felt that the start of this dish was in fact the sauce. The chicken flavor was very tasty as well, and the process of cooking it created a very familiar asian texture to the chicken. This quick dinner was a good one I’ll be making again soon!
I was very hopeful for this recipe because it looked so tasty and weird on the package. Yeah, I like weird stuff. Brown/grey noodles? Who could resist? But in the end I thought the dressing for the dish was too sour, and overwhelming. Plus, the spice wasn’t even cooked with the meal, so added a kind of dry, powdery texture to everything which I wasn’t really hot on.
In my quest for finding quick dinners, this Honey Garlic Shrimp and Broccoli from Homemade Hooplah was definitely a winner. It turned out delicious, took only 20 minutes to prepare, was salty, sweet, and delicious, and you can substitute basically any meat and veggie you like to make it your own creation.
Personally, I will use a little less honey and a little more soy sauce next time to make it more to my taste, but hey, not bad for a first try!
When I saw this beef-and-broccoli recipe on Linda Etherton’s blog GlutenFreeHomemaker.com, I knew I wanted to try it out for myself. The instructions seemed easy to follow, the end-result sounded tasty and the required ingredients are gluten free, which is a medical must for me. When replicating the dish, I took a few convenient shortcuts so the meal prep would be even easier and everything came together in less than thirty minutes, which is always a plus in my household.
