Korean Sizzling Beef Tacos

This recipe I found on Pinterest, and even though I’m post-college, I’m still broke, so instead of a flank steak, I used ground beef. The marinade in this still gives it tons of flavor and isn’t any less gourmet in my book. However, since I only used about 1/4 lb. of ground beef, I changed…

Thai Lettuce Wraps

My mom couldn’t stop raving over this recipe. She loves The Cheesecake Factory’s Thai lettuce wraps and said this recipe tasted just like them. I like to add both sauces in my lettuce wrap at a time, but you’re open to assemble your wrap any way you’d like. This recipe is great because it’s pretty…

Honey Sriracha Chicken

My brother found this recipe online and knew he had to have it that night. We already had all the ingredients so it worked out well. We figured we wanted a crunch to it as well, so we sliced up a red and yellow bell pepper then added it in at the end. It was delicious…

Honey Pepper Salmon

This was my first time attempting this recipe created by my mom. It was delicious. The soy honey pepper sauce was so flavorful and easy to put together. You just have to watch it like a hawk, because one moment it was fine, the next it was boiling over, making my whole stove sticky (not fun)….

Thai Coconut Chicken Stir Fry

This was my first time cooking with coconut milk. It’s delicious. What’s nice about coconut milk is it’s super healthy, plus it gives a unique flavor you can’t really get from anywhere else. I got this recipe from Thai Kitchen. I used their brand of coconut milk. This recipe is so easy; less than 10 ingredients…

Thai Peanut Teriyaki Chicken

I came up with this recipe by incorporating some of my favorite Asian meals during my first year of living off-campus during college. I always have all the ingredients in the house, so it’s convenient when you don’t know what to make for dinner the evening of. The preparation time varies, depending on how long you want…

Light Sesame Chicken

I always wondered what sesame sauce was made from, like, who knew there was honey in it? But it was so delicious, it only took 20 minutes from prep to plate, and I definitely plan on making it again soon. This is also the light version, using only corn starch and egg whites as the coating on…
