Braided Spaghetti Bread & The official blog of Americas favorite frozen dough
We are carb lovers at our house, so when I saw the Braided Spaghetti Bread recipe in the Rhodes Home Baked Family Favorites with frozen dough cookbook I knew we would love it. This is a really simple recipe; it just takes a little planning for thawing the dough. It will take 2-3 hours for the bread loaf to thaw to room temperature or 1-2 hours for the rolls to thaw to room temperature. You will need: 1 Loaf Rhodes Bread Dough or 12 Rhodes Dinner Rolls, thawed to room temperature6 oz spaghetti, cooked 1 cup thick spaghetti sauce 8 oz mozzarella cheese, cut into 1/2 –inch cubes 1 egg white Parmesan cheese Parsley flakes Spray counter lightly with non-stick cooking spray (or use parchment paper). Roll loaf or combined dinner rolls into a 12x16-inch rectangle. Cook spaghetti according to package instructions. Remove wrap from dough. Make cuts 1 ½-inches apart on long sides of dough to within ½-inch of filling. Begin braid by folding top and bottom strips toward filling. This was fantastic! Related:  food and drink

Top ten easiest meals for students (or anyone else for that matter) to cook - Finances - Student Life Five quick and easy dessert recipes for students Unfortunately, as delicious as these two dietary staples undoubtedly are, they are neither nutritious nor cheap.

My Fridge Food - Recipes you already have in your Fridge Tom Yum Soup - Tom Yum Soup Recipe Soup to boost your immune system? That's right! Tom Yum soup is currently under study for its ability to fight off cold and flu viruses, and perhaps even cancer (see link below for more information). So try my delicious version of Tom Yum Goong, which is basically Tom Yum soup but with a little coconut milk added ("Tom Khaa"). The coconut milk gives it a little more thickness and flavor while still keeping it healthy. It's an easy recipe, and quick to cook up, but tastes like Thai restaurant quality. Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 10 minutes Total Time: 25 minutes Yield: SERVES 2-3 Ingredients: Preparation: For a simple step-by-step version of this recipe, see: Easy Tom Yum Soup Recipe. About Tom Yum Soup and Coconut Milk: Depending on which Thai chef is cooking, evaporated milk may be added instead of coconut milk (this is often the case in Thailand). For more on the immune-boosting benefits of Tom Yum soup, see: Thai Soup Under Study.

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! The sauce is sweet, tangy, there is no lack in orange flavor, and the red pepper flakes give it just a touch of heat. Combine corn starch, salt, and pepper. As you finish each batch, drain cooked chicken in a paper towel lined plate. Better Than Takeout Orange Chicken Ingredients Chicken 2 eggs, beaten

Thai Coconut Milk Soup - Tom Kha Gai ~ New York Food Journal Dashi and miso soup are staple Japanese soups. Phở is one of the traditional Vietnamese soups. Cardamom infused lentil soup makes for a classic Indian soup. This blog's survey of Southeast Asian soups would be incomplete without Tom Kha Gai: Thai coconut milk soup. The basic recipe, combining coconut milk, fish sauce, chicken broth, and lemongrass is great, but I think it is even better with a few additions. As a classic soup, there are many varieties to the broth; particular disagreement appears to be over the ratio of coconut milk to chicken both. Serve this by itself or with summer rolls or Shanghai noodles. 2. 3.

After some research* I’ve found that Panda Express’ Mongolian Beef has 1000 mg of sodium per serving. PF Chang’s Mongolian Beef has 1340 mg of sodium per serving. Pei Wei’s Mongolian Beef has 1400 mg of sodium per serving. Its recommended that you do not consume more than 1500 mg of sodium daily.

classic ice cream sandwiches Look, guys, you’re never going to see my living room on a design blog. As lovely as the walls in landlord-chosen sallow yellow-beige are, as handsome as this coffee table once was (before the finish chipped off the top and we decided to ignore it until it fixed itself), and as charming as the explosion of half-deflated balloons, overturned fire trucks and other toys (some not even wooden, organic, or in sync with our decorating scheme, which, by the way, doesn’t exist) might be, this is hardly the stuff of Pinners’ Envy. Our parties are equally uncoordinated. There are no Mason jar cocktails with homemade bitters, flour sack table runners, or dishes sprinkled with fresh herbs from our window box garden (which also, uh, doesn’t exist, although if you saw the grime that accumulates on our windowsills from the avenue below, you might thank us). We’ve never sent guests home with a party favor aside from a hangover and we usually forget to make coffee at brunch.
