Asian Pork and Cabbage Salad

Asian Pork and Cabbage Salad via PasstheSushi.com

It’s not Monday – and I am desperately trying to stick to the salad theme until next week when Summer officially hits but there was a lot going on this week. So instead of having you time travel back to Monday when we are so close to the weekend, just bare with. ;D The next few weeks aren’t showing any signs of slowing down either. Let’s see if I can magically pull something off before next Monday for ya. In the meantime, I’m considering signing myself up for summer camp and just playing with glue sticks and dried macaroni for a […]

Quick Dinner Fixin’s: Thai Red Curry with Shrimp

Curry_shrimp_0037

It’s Thanksgivings eve and the last thing I want to think about is turkey. I’m going to have piles of turkey and turkey leftovers tomorrow. So tonight all I want is a quick and simple meal.  Nothing is faster or easier than a stir fry. And it’s my secret weapon when I feel like we have been carb binging and I need to sneak some veggies in. With some coconut milk and red curry paste, I might as well be in heaven. Who needs a turkey? This is where it’s at. OK, won’t lie. I still want some turkey, but that’s only […]

Quick Dinner Fixins: Honey Pork Stir Fry

honey_pork_stirfry_1

  This whole week is about bringing the family around the dinner table with fast delicious meals packed with flavors kids will want to try. The hook? They are all paired up with a little of that Disney magic. One of the biggest struggles for a lot of parents is getting kids to try new foods. Putting new ingredients on the table without an eye roll or verbal protest is something I see a lot of my friends struggling with. As I went through the recipes I wanted to make or post, I couldn’t help but pair a few here and there with some […]

Spicy Cashew Chicken

I love my big, black, sturdy… wok. Yeah, it rhymes, but I promise I wasn’t going there. Now, get your mind out of the gutter and back to the food. Seriously, my wok has got to be one of the most valuable things in my kitchen. My cherry red Kitchenaid stand mixer is amazing. I will never dispute that, but the things it does, I could do myself (just not as quickly, effectively, or without complaining later about how sore my arms are). My food processor, just as awesome, but I would never tell a new cook they must have one. […]

Sweet and Sour Pork

I’m all about the quick and easy meal from time to time. The king of quick and easy has got to be the stir fry. We love mixing it up and trying new ones and as part of my new years resolutions was to try to utilize more of my cookbook and magazines I knew the moment I saw this one we had to try it! I ripped it out (as per my knew organization process) and added it to the pile.   I’ve never had a sweet and sour anything, but after trying this dish, I’m not sold. I […]

Steak and Udon Stir-fry

New to Pass the Sushi? Don’t miss a moment of randomness! Follow on Facebook and Twitter. The beautiful thing about stir frys is (everything) they come together quickly, they are a great way to pack in those veggies and they are a knockout for the taste-buds. Why I don’t make stir-frys as a weekly regular in this house, I’ll never know because they are a dinner even the most novice chef can succeed at. Not to mention, Handsome’s eyes light up the moment the big heavy iron wok appears and I know he is going to eat more colorful vegetables […]

Pork Black Pepper Stir Fry

My last trip to Trader Joe’s brought home several new jarred sauces that I have been really anxious to try. The ingredients on the back had me excited things were more healthy then other jarred options and the flavors on the labels seemed promising.Often, I’m not a fan of pre-made options (we all know homemade just tastes better) but some nights having shortcuts lined up in the pantry is just what you need – especially if you hide them next to the strong liquor. Inspired by a post that in hindsight looks nothing like what I have created here (really […]

Chicken and Broccoli Stir-fry

Remember that old saying, “You’ll catch more flies with honey than with vinegar?” Its a statement that pretty much defines how you should always treat your client in the business of sales (though, I’m pretty sure it should be bees and not flies). The thing is though, I’m seeing more and more rude sales people every day.   The other day I over heard a salesmen get downright disrespectful to my boss as his time was ‘being wasted’ and my boss ‘didn’t trust’ the salesman. We let you come in, sit down, and go into your pitch – we have […]
