Garlic Sesame Pan Fried Vegetable Dumplings & Green Beans


I had some vegetable dumplings in the freezer and some green beans in the fridge and this is what I came up with. It is very simple, fast and easy to make. You can make this dish with any dumplings and vegetables you like or that you already have on hand. You can serve this dish rice or noodles. We had it with ramen noodles that I quickly boiled, drained & seasoned lightly with a little mushroom soy sauce. Makes for a fast lunch/dinner meal. I hope you try it and like it ❤ You can find the recipe here Garlic Sesame Pan Fried Vegetable Dumplings & Green Beans.

Crazy Hair Day (

Hi, I am a maltese and my name is Belle, I love to be in the kitchen with my mommy. I didn’t want to say anything but she needs a little supervision sometimes 🙂 so I have to be in there and watch her, test things, tastes things and make sure the food is YUMMYLICIOUS ❤ I am not a picky eater, I just LOVE to eat and know what I want 🙂 I love to go to the park and being outdoors and love my other job as a guard dog. I also love to sleep in until my mom says “breakfast” ❤ I love to lounge around most days. I don’t hate rabbits but love to chase them in my backyard and bark at them when I see them in my frontyard. Things I don’t like…baths, winter, snow, doggy doctor, wind and I’m sure there are more but I can’t think of them right now.

I am a little picky when it comes to treats. My mommy makes me homemade treats sometimes, with my approval of course 🙂 But she also gets KaiKates filled with all natural made in USA treats and fun furbaby friendly toys delivered to my front door.

Grapow Gai (Thai Basil Chicken)


Grapow Gai is a Thai Basil Chicken Dish. This dish is a go to of mine. Fast, delicious and easy to make. When we have this dish we have it with Sunny Sideup Eggs. They go hand in hand! 🙂 This dish doesn’t come with asparagus but you can be creative and add any other vegetables you want. And so…I added asparagus 🙂 You can find the recipe here Grapow Gai (Thai Basil Chicken).


CrockPot Beef Brisket Pho **Rich & Full off Flavor**


Your house will smell SOOO YUMMYLICIOUS! This is the only way I make Pho at home. Cooking the broth low and slow in a crockpot helps bring out the flavors from the oxtail and beef bones, you can also add whole brisket (let it cool and slice them really thin and add it to your noodles) as well.

Cook this overnight and have it ready for lunch or throw everything in the crockpot in the morning and have it ready when you get home from work. You can find the recipe for the  CrockPot Pho *Rich & Full of Flavor*  here. You won’t be disappointed 🙂

Spicy Garlic Cilantro Marinade


This is a throw everything in a blender marinade 🙂 Very simple and delicious! Great for pork chops, pork ribs, chicken, seafood etc.. Great for grilling or frying up in a pan and even great for cooking it in the oven. What I do is I marinade the meat and will only cook half of the meat and save the other half of marinaded meat in a zip lock bag and keep it in the freezer. I do this all the time with korean bbq and cha siu bbq pork. I always marinade them and freeze them so I have some ready when I want to cook them. When I know I want to cook them I just take it out of the freezer a night before and thaw it in the refridgerator overnight.

In this clip I marinaded some pork riblets with this marinade for a soup I made that day and saved extra in a freezer bag and stored it in the freezer. You can find the recipe and video on how I made this marinade here Spicy Garlic Cilantro Marinade. I also made Deep Fried Crispy Marinated Pork Riblets (Thai Style aka Kraduke Mhoo Tod) with this recipe. I hope you like it ❤

Spicy Peanut Dipping/Noodle Sauce


This 5 ingredient spicy peanut sauce is super easy to make. You can use it as a dip for fresh spring rolls, veggies, add it to salads, drink it up 🙂 or make a peanut noodle dish with it. You can find the recipe here Spicy Peanut Dipping/Noodle Sauce.

Beef Stirfry with Asparagus, Bell Peppers & Mushrooms


This dish is simple, fast and easy. Instead of putting everything in a frying pan and dumping sauce on top of everything in the pan and cooking it that way, I let the beef marinate in a sauce first, while I prepare the vegetables. Sometimes I do it this way instead of dropping sauce into the pan with everything in there because sometimes I don’t like my stirfry to be to saucy. Depends on my mood 🙂 If you don’t like to much sauce in your stirfry and still flavorful you can find the recipe here Beef Stirfry with Asparagus, Bell Peppers & Mushrooms or go to the link in the Recipe Menu on top of this page.
