I love a good copycat recipe and I love, love, LOVE Chinese food. I have an awesome recipe for you today that is definitely a keeper. Hi everyone, it’s Nicky here again from Kitchen Sanctuary. You’re going to love delicious copycat recipe for Kung Pao Chicken. I have a few copycat recipes I’ve been playing with […]
Today we’ve got a quick and easy skillet chicken pasta meal. Perfect with garlic bread on those cold days, and equally perfect on hot days with a nice crunchy green salad.
This is one-pan cooking at it’s best. Everything gets added in step-by-step, and we end up with a delicious cheesy-creamy pasta dish – with plenty of vegetables – that the kids will love.
Although my family aren’t too fussy when it comes to dinner time (ok, we’re all human dust-bins really), I do struggle with meat-free dishes.
If I serve up a completely vegetarian dish, I usually find everyone looking up expectantly, waiting for me to put the ‘main dish’ on the table.
I’ve had a couple of great successes (my Cheesy Veggie burgers were a real hit – no bacon required yay!), but for the most part, trying to get one or two meat-free dishes in per week simply isn’t going to happen.
Now fish – I know I can get away with. So meals like this Creamy Tomato Fettuccine with Salmon are my savior in trying to reduce the meat consumption just a little.
Given the opportunity to get messy, dip fingers in and lick the spoon, I think most kids love cooking. Cooking with kids is so important because it not only teaches them important skills, but being involved often gets them more excited to eat meals.
My kids – Gracey aged 8 and Lewis aged 5 – have been making kitchen creations since they were toddlers.
I told Gracey I needed her to help in creating a lovely dinner for ‘Or So She Says’ and she jumped off the sofa and immediately started rummaging through her growing collection of cook books. Click on through to see what she decided to make for you today:
It’s always fun to start a new year here on ‘Or so she says…’ because I get to introduce to you a bunch of new and fabulous bloggers who have joined the blog team. There is sooooo much talent and creativity out there and my behind-the-scenes gals and myself work really hard to find our very favorites and slap a ‘she’ in front of their name. We’re pretty excited about these gals, both new AND the ones who are sticking around for another year. There will be oodles of blog posts and ideas coming your way. So be here, every day, yo. There’s always something new… recipes, parenting tips, travel ideas, crafts, gift ideas, and so much more!
Today I want to introduce you to Nicky from Kitchen Sanctuary.
