General Tso’s Chicken My friend Peng has been bugging me to make General Tso’s chicken for several months now. He lives in California and is really into the Asian-Mexican fusion thing, so he’s fixated on the idea of a General Tso’s burrito with fried rice and kimchi. I don’t know how I feel about that, but I’m nothing if not accommodating, so here I am…making General Tso’s chicken. You’re welcome, Peng. I don’t usually order General-anything from Chinese restaurants, but Dan loves the stuff.

Pomegranate-Cranberry Chicken Pomegranate juice and cranberries. Both are high in anti-oxidants and rich in vitamins, making a healthy combination. Since I had cranberries left from Thanksgiving and had purchased some pomegranate juice when it was on sale, I was trying to think of something to make with both of these. After making Pan-Glazed Chicken with Basil from Cooking Light’s 5 Ingredient 15 Minute Cookbook the inspiration was there and I decided to try a chicken dish with a pomegranate-cranberry sauce.

Kickin' Cashew Chicken Oh, wowz. This is cashews like you’ve never seen them before. Like, cashews on steroids. On vacation in India. Garlic Brown Sugar Chicken Friday, February 24, 2012 Garlic Brown Sugar Chicken* Considering how well y’all took to me re-blogging the Fire Roasted Tomato Basil Soup, I decided to proclaim this week throwback week. Slow Cooker Coconut Curry Chicken The first time I ever tasted curry was shortly after Brett and I got married. For a date night we went with some good friends for a scenic fall drive through the Alpine Loop (if you live in Utah, you know how beautiful the Alpine Loop is!). We planned to grab a bite at a new burger joint afterwards but by the time we got back it was late, the burger joint was closed, and we were starving. Our friends talked us in to trying a Thai restaurant that was nearby and happened to be open late (Kellie, do you remember this?). I was skeptical- I had never tried Thai or curry, and the fact they were open late made me wonder if they were desperate for business?

Half Baked Harvest - Made with Love I have a serious question for you guys. Does your computer have a smudge of chocolate on the space bar, a tomato stain on the outside case and what I think is yogurt from those Greek Chicken Gyros I made smeared across the track pad?
