Let’s get cooking ladies! I am ridiculously excited for this new section! Aren’t you? lol. So WHY have we included a new section all about cooking? Think back to the first valid advice that your mother gave you regarding men… It might have sounded something like this, “The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.” Ringing true for anyone?? Well, this advice came in really handy when I met my husband and is only becoming more true as the years go by. In fact, when my husband addressed his # 1 WANT in our relationship, it was for me to cook more. I used to cook like mad before we had children and then it got more difficult due to time constraints.
Without further ado, I am going to show you how to make one of my hubby’s favorite meals. If you don’t want to see the step-by-step instructions on how to make it, click on the recipe name below to print it out.
1. Asian egg rolls – I do have a fabulous recipe for these, but they are VERY time consuming. So in an effort to save time and sanity I use the store-bought version. The brand featured in the picture below is pretty tasty. I put these in the oven first because they only take about 20 min. to cook, which is how long the Cashew Chicken will take start to finish. (I wouldn’t recommend microwaving these because the crust will turn out soggy rather than crispy.)
5. Add vegetables, cooking until barely tender. Add nuts and pineapple.
6. Pour sweet and sour sauce over chicken mixture.
Serve Cashew Chicken over rice with an egg roll on the side.
