Better Than Takeout Orange Chicken

Yesterday as I stood in the kitchen trying to figure out what to make for dinner I wondered to myself, how do those people do it on those shows where they are given random ingredients and are suppose come up with something genius. I think I stood there for a solid 20 minutes looking in the cupboards and staring into the freezer hoping that I would be struck by some ingenious idea. Then I saw the oranges, and it hit me “O-raang Shh-ikun”….that is orange chicken if you can’t understand the accent. I love orange chicken, and I almost always order # 14 Orange Chicken when we order Chinese take out and I wondered to myself if I could make it better at home. This recipe most definitely delivered! Ha ha Chinese food…delivered….get it? Better Than Takeout Orange Chicken

Cheesesteak Sandwich Cheesesteak Sandwich The famous sandwich from Philly is a nutritionist’s nightmare: mounds of greasy beef and fried onions; a massive, oil-soaked hoagie roll; and to top it all off, a viscous deluge of Cheez Whiz (that’s right, traditional cheesesteaks are made with Whiz). But we want you to have your steak and eat it, too, so we came up with this version, which relies on a lean flank steak, a whole-wheat roll, and a yogurt-based blue cheese sauce. It’s a bit fancier than the sandwich from the City of Brotherly Love, but to our tastes, it’s also better. You’ll Need: 2 Tbsp plain Greekstyle yogurt (we like Fage 2%) 2 Tbsp olive-oil mayonnaise 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese 16 oz skirt or flank steak Salt and black pepper to taste 2 cups arugula 2 tomatoes, sliced 4 whole-wheat sandwich rolls Caramelized onions
