Broccoli Apple Salad

I’m sure we’re all familiar with the broccoli & cauliflower salad that sometimes has bacon or raisins in it. This recipe for Broccoli Apple Salad is similar to those recipes, but I think it is bumped up a notch. The dressing is cooked, but don’t let that stop you from making it. It is a […]

Restaurant Style Fried Rice

Our Chinese take-out at home wouldn’t be complete without Restaurant Style Fried Rice. My husband & I love the fried rice, and enjoyed this one, but both kids would rather have a noodle dish. Next time, I think I will do less soy sauce though, it got a little bit stronger than we like it. […]
