Shrimp Fried Rice is one of our favorite dishes when we get take-out. After the success of our Japanese Steakhouse Fried Rice, we decided to tackle our other favorite fried rice recipe. Like our other fried rice recipe, this one uses day old rice and cooks super fast. The fried rice that you get from take-out utilizes smaller sized shrimp, but we used full size shrimp to turn this side dish into an entree! Check out our recipe below.
With the Polar Vortex bearing down on us last week, I was craving some comfort food. Nothing says comfort like, Shepard’s Pie. A hearty meat stew topped with potatoes. Delicious!

About a year ago I created personal Tuna Pot Pies. They were delicious. However, I never tackled the most common pot pie out there, the Chicken Pot Pie. So the other day when Dana asked for a chicken pot pie, I knew exactly how to make them. I would make a perfect pot pie sauce … Read morePersonal Chicken Pot Pies
A steak is just a steak until you add sides. Then the steak turns into a meal. Everyone always focuses on the main entree, but fails to put any thought into the supporting cast. A good side can elevate an OK meal to a great meal. For this reason, I like to focus on side dishes every once in a while. Like today, I am making brown sugar glazed carrots. These carrots are boiled in a sweet brown sugar glaze that perfectly cooks the carrots and glazes them with a sweet flavorful glaze.
These carrots are the perfect side for any entree. I serve them with beef, chicken, lamb and even grilled fish. It is always good to have a simple well rounded side in your recipe box, that you can pull out at a moments notice.
