You Can Never Go Wrong With Cabbage Burgers

Pin It

Cabbage burgers bring me back to my childhood.  My mother used to make them all of the time.  Well, she'd make them every once in a while, but when she did make them, she'd make a ton of them, then she would put lots in the freezer.  We'd just pop them in the oven whenever we wanted to have cabbage burgers for dinner.  These delicious packets are quite time consuming, so that it why my mother would make a lot of them at one time.

Project Food Challenge: Shrimp Pad Thai

Pin It

I made this meal at the request of Chef Matt, he simply loves pad thai, and he wanted to see if I was able to replicate one of his favorites at home.  To my surprise, I got two thumbs up!  I was shocked that I was able to do as well as I did on my very first attempt at this noodly dish.  Previous to making this dish, I had never been crazy about pad thai; I just wasn't giving it enough of a chance.  I loved every single bite!     The wonderful pallet of flavors in the sauce, the crisp carrots, the delicious shrimp... it all made my taste buds so happy.  This recipe is definitely a keeper!

Project Food Challenge: Egg Rolls

Pin It

Egg rolls that aren't made from fresh ingredients (e.g. frozen egg rolls) taste that way: not fresh and manufactured.  I've never been a huge fan of egg rolls , and the reason is that I never really had one that was that fresh or made correctly.  This past weekend I tried my hand at making these fried rolls of goodness, and I must say, they were delicious.  They have been something that has always been on my culinary 'to-do' list for quite some time now.  I've always been somewhat intimidated by the huge list of ingredients and all the steps involved.  But as I completed this task, I learned that I don't really have any reason to fear this crispy side dish.  I will explain every step so that you too can make egg rolls that are savory and packed with so much flavor that you'll never settle for frozen again.
