The Brownie Project Ramen Recipes: Dishes To Make With Packaged Noodles That Aren't Soup (PHOTOS) We'd like to just come right out and say it: we love packaged ramen noodles. Are they full of preservatives? Oh, definitely. Do they contain an entire week's worth of your recommended sodium intake? Absolutely. These marvels of modern food science, invented by Momofuku Ando, are incredibly versatile for all kinds of other dishes beyond noodle soups. One Pot Summer Pasta An easy summer recipe made in one pot! Eat it hot today and eat the left overs cold to take and go on a busy summer day. Both are delicious! I was at the pool last week when we took a break from swimming to eat our lunch and while I brought out my boring peanut butter sandwiches for me and the kids, my friend took out a container of some ridiculously amazing looking pasta that then wafted it’s savory scent over to my nose and made me almost drool! I asked her what it was and she told me the leftovers from their dinner the other day. I thought about that yummy pasta all day {I mean hey, I am pregnant!} The first fabulous part of this recipe is that you can make the whole thing in one big pot. To begin put on a large pot of water to boil. Boil the pasta as directed until it is al dente. Once it is cooked, take the pasta and the rest of the veggies you chopped and the salt and stir them into the pot with the oil until the pasta is coated. That is all there is to it!

Peppermint Bark Recipe With Picture It's funny how something can go unnoticed for years and then suddenly you see it everywhere. That is how it was for me with Peppermint Bark; that beautiful confection of dark and white chocolate covered with crushed candy canes. The only problem I have with commercially made Peppermint Bark is that it is very expensive. Luckily we can make it at home as it is much easier to make than it looks. Only three ingredients are required, dark chocolate, white chocolate, and candy canes. The difference between commercially made Peppermint Bark and homemade is how the chocolate is handled. If you have spent any time on the site you know I often talk about how the brand of chocolate you use will affect the flavor of what you are making.
