Thai Basil Sambal Noodles

thai basil sambal

About a week and a half ago, we were challenged to put together a recipe that was inspired by some of the delicious options over at P.F. Chang’s.  This recipe was a result of that experiment, as was the recent ginger chicken.  This is a delicious dish, and I would definitely recommend it.

Our spicy coconut sambal sauce is definitely spicier, but this can be easily circumvented by deseeding the serrano peppers or using a milder pepper in its place.  Either way, this was a dish that had the house smelling amazing for hours, and I think you’ll really enjoy it. Continue reading

Cabbage Slaw

Here’s a quick and easy dish to put together as a light meal or side that’s sure to last for at least a few days between two people.  The one thing that makes it possible is a reliable mandolin.  I got mine at a local home retailer for less than $30 and it keeps finding ways to be useful.

Baked Jalapeño Dijon Grilled Chicken

Full disclosure:  I pulled this recipe from Civilized Caveman and played around with it a little bit.  It was delicious; spicy and flavorful and ridiculously juicy.  I forgot how much better bone-in and skin-on chicken is, and the best part is that it’s less expensive than the prepared stuff.
