Sometimes we get stuck in a dinner rut and eat the same things week after week. This meal helped pull us out of our rut and it was refreshing to try something new and have it be well received by the whole family (including the 18-month old!). I can’t say I’ve ever had Japanese Yakisoba before, so I can’t speak for the authenticity of this dish, but I can speak for the deliciousness!
A couple summers ago at a summer festival I got some mac and cheese from a food truck. It was topped with bbq pulled pork and all my mac and cheese dreams came true. So, I knew I had to re-create it. It’s a great use of leftovers you may have, and it’s an awesome combination of flavors I think you’ll love.
I love having salad for dinner, but have kind of steered away from it while I’ve had toddlers at home. Without any, or many, molars it’s hard for them to chew and I don’t like to have to make a separate dinner for them. It took a while for me to figure out that the little ones love deconstructed salad just as much I love having it for dinner. Duh.

Hey all! Leesh & Lu here. I guess it might be a stretch to really call this a recipe, so let’s just call it dinner (or breakfast!) inspiration. This is one meal I will never tire of. I ate it at least 4x per week for 2+ years and always looked forward to it. You can customize the ingredients any way you’d like, and even try your hand at making your own english muffins some time!

This recipe for honey lemon lime carnitas is a great set-it-and-forget-it kind of meal. Throw it in the crock pot before running errands or heading to the pool and when you return your house will smell amazing and dinner won’t be far off!
Sweet Pork Nachos could be made as your main meal, or as a meal made from leftovers the next day! This meal does have several components, but if you also plan a salad or enchilada or taco night using the same meat it will cut your prep time and be well worth your while. While the recipe is called sweet pork nachos, I think that substituting some marinated grilled chicken or steak would be equally delicious here!
While the recipe is simple, the taste is incredible! The roasted red pepper is definitely the star of the show! Start by sauteing onions, garlic, and roasted red peppers in a olive oil. Blend until smooth and creamy. Add chicken broth, spices, cream and Parmesan. Spoon the sauce over pasta, top with diced chicken, and big shavings of Parmesan if desired, and dig in!
This is something we ate growing up, so eating it always makes me feel a bit nostalgic. Lu concocted this amazing garlic chicken sauce as a refreshing change from the customary of chicken soup that is often used in Hawaiian haystacks. Speaking of haystacks, what do you call this dish? When my husband’s family says “haystacks” they are referring to what I call “frito chili pie/walking tacos”. I’m just going to call it delicious.
