Fried Chicken Lunch at Seoul Street

Fried Chicken Lunch at Seoul Street

A couple weeks ago, the huz and I stopped into Seoul Street, a Korean restaurant on the north side of Ann Arbor, for lunch one late Saturday morning. Actually I think we were the first ones in the door at 11:00 AM on the dot. After hearing many bloggers and Instagrammers proclaim that Seoul Street … Continue reading

Sweet & Spicy Shrimp with Rice Noodles

Sweet & Spicy Shrimp with Rice Noodles

Ever since I realized that I do, actually, love shrimp a couple years ago, I’ve really taken to cooking with it! (Evidence: Seafood posts). But for the last several months, shrimp was been pretty nonexistent in my kitchen. Anyone else notice the skyrocketing shrimp prices!? Huge bummer. Apparently there is a shortage. But, the other … Continue reading

Easy Miso-Chicken Ramen

Last week I tried this recipe for Easy Miso-Chicken Ramen from Eating Well and enjoyed it, and wanted to share. Sometimes when I cook, I prep some or all of the ingredients as I go, and other times I prepare everything in advance.

I was sad that I wasn’t going to get to partake in Restaurant Week this summer, but I found time to grab dinner downtown with … Continue reading

Pho House

Pho House

Last week the huz was traveling for work for a couple days, which meant I was flyin’ solo for dinner. While I miss the dear huz when he is gone, I do enjoy the opportunity to indulge in whatever I fancy for dinner. On this particular Wednesday evening, I fancied a bowl of pho from … Continue reading

Spicy Basil Chicken

Spicy Basil Chicken

“Guess why!?” the huz instructed me the other night. “..What?” I asked, distractedly. “Guess why!?” he repeated, with emphasis. “..Okay…?” “CHICKEN THIGH!” the huz cackled. We are so mature. This conversation happened on a weeknight after work. The huz was in the kitchen, kindly chopping up one pound of boneless, skinless chicken thighs for me, … Continue reading

Miso-Vegetable Soup

Miso-Vegetable Soup

Cooking with miso has been on my culinary to-do list for some time now. I nearly caved and purchased some miso last November when I prepared a batch of amazing “Rich Chicken Soup.” Instead, for that recipe I combined miso broth with chicken stock, rather than adding miso to chicken stock as the recipe intended. … Continue reading
