Lemongrass Chicken

Fresh zest pops from the tender chicken as this easy to follow recipe adds yet another delicious meal to your rotation. Lemon grass and lime juice make for a delightful marinade that embeds their flavor profiles into the chicken. I absolutely love to pan sear a well seasoned meat to give the kitchen that home cooking atmosphere. Watching the steam escape the pan as the meat begins to braise fills me satisfaction knowing something good is about to get platted up. Garlic notes will dance harmoniously in the air on the way to the table and on your taste buds once you take your first mouth watering bite. This is a beginner friendly recipe that is awesome for teaching those growing teenagers how to cook a good meal and is also a great prep meal for the week.

I love to partner this chicken with jasmine rice (or your favorite), fresh cut salad (with farm fresh tomatoes) and an egg (or two). The egg yolk mixed with the rice creates a balanced plate of textures and flavors and is pleasing to look at while you work your way through the meal.

        Pineapple Shrimp Fried Rice

        Pineapple Shrimp Fried Rice, a simple and practical meal. The pineapple brings a welcome sweet and tangy flavor to the fried rice. The presentation of this meal is unique and the pineapple makes for a conversation piece as well as an eye-catching bowl. I recommend not skimping out on the shrimp when feeding your family as no one wants to walk away from the dinner table still hungry.

        Thai Mango Sticky Rice

        Thai Mango Sticky Rice Dessert (#Khao Niaow Ma Muang). The ingredients for this traditional dessert normally consist of ripe mango, coconut milk, sugar, toasted sesame seeds, salt and white sweet rice (aka, sticky rice). As you can see from my posts these last few weeks; I need to start eating a bit healthier. For those of us feeling guilty and trying to get back on the right path, I recommend substituting traditional rice with sweet black rice. This nontraditional substitute has a higher content of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that we all need in our diet. This sweet dish tastes just as good as the original without the guilt.
