Shrimp Fried Rice

Shrimp Fried Rice

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.

Smoked Honey Garlic Chicken and Thermoworks Smoke Review

Smoked Honey Garlic Chicken

Our good friends over at Thermoworks have released a new wireless thermometer called “Smoke“.  The Smoke is a wireless thermometer that includes two probes.  That way, you can wirelessly monitor both the pit and the food.  As a barbecuer, this is important.  The proper temperature is the difference between delicious bbq and charcoal.  Plus, since this is all done wirelessly, you can do it while watching your favorite game or snoozing on the couch. We tested this thermometer while making a nice Honey Garlic Smoked Chicken.  The chicken provided approximately 2 hours for us to test the thermometer and check its limits.  The thermometer performed flawlessly and actually exceeded expectations.  Check out our review below.

Growing up, my family loved to hit up Red Lobster.  Red Lobster is famous for cheddar biscuits, shrimp scampi and bringing seafood to the Midwest. Who wouldn’t love it.  My favorite thing on the menu was the shrimp scampi.  Not a traditional scampi, but a scampi inspired dish that was pure shrimp and no noodles.  The other day my Father asked me if I could recreate it. I accepted the challenge and here it is.
