Chinese Chicken Salad Dressing Recipe

So I often have an idea of what I want to make and what ingredients i have to make it. ... I usually search around the internet until i find something similiar. I often don't find exactly what i'm looking for... so I take ratios from other recipes and put what I want in it....

Yesterday I made Chinese Chicken Salad Dressing... it actually turned out pretty good and I would like to actually make it again.

So here is about what I did.

1 TBS seseame seed oil
2 TBS soy sauce
3 TBS white vinegar
1/2 tsp heaping of ginger
1/4 tsp heaping of chili flakes
4 tsp or so of brown sugar (to taste)
a dash of lime juice

later, i realized I didn't even put in garlic.. which i put in everything.. so next time I may add that. also the dressing had a little kick to it, but could use a little more depending on your likes.. so you could add a little more chili flakes to taste.

pour over salad ingredients of your choice.. top with cranberries, crispy wontons and delish.....!

Chicken Piccata

My friend Julia sent me this recipe for Chicken Piccata. It was pretty good.. and I'd never used capers before. They kind of add a lemony zing to it. And the presentation looked pretty....

Here is the end result.

July 22nd - zucchini bread

Today I'm making Zucchini bread. Jon brought home some Zucchini from his boss' garden. I do not like Zucchini, so I thought I'd make it into bread - which I loved when my mother made it as a kid. I don't know if she has a specific recipe she uses... I should ask her.
But I used this recipe today


I'll post the verdict later tonight...

** ** ** ** **

Jon gave it a 4/5 - He ate two really large pieces, so he obviously liked it. He said that maybe it could be a little sweeter.. it was good, but I'll keep looking for the perfect recipe.

Also, made hungarian goulash tonight, but used hamburger instead of beef. It was good, but more like a real fancy Hamburger Helper.


Hello World! So I thought I'd try this blogging thing.... However I'm not much of a writer, so I think this will be more to track good recipes I find, projects I do, etc. Maybe eventually it'll take on a life of it's own.... or maybe I'll get bored and it won't last long, knowing me and my short attention span, that is probably more likely :)

But here goes nothing....
