Sesame Shrimp

Sesame Shrimp

by Pam on October 7, 2013

I wanted to make something quick and easy using ingredients I had on hand for dinner. I found a recipe at Taste of Home[1] that sounded perfect. I adapted the recipe a little bit by adding less sesame oil and fresh garlic. I was going to marinate the shrimp for 30 minutes but time got away from me and they marinated closer to 60 minutes. Unfortunately, that made the shrimp a touch salty, so next time I will only marinade for 20-30 minutes. Thankfully, the rice mellowed out the salty flavor and made this sesame shrimp great. I loved how simple this recipe was to make – perfect for a busy weeknight meal!

Combine the soy sauce, sesame oil, lemon juice, and garlic together in a large zip lock bag. Seal and shake to mix the marinade well. Add shrimp to the marinade then toss to coat evenly. Seal and place into the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes.

Heat the  vegetable oil in a large skillet. Add the shrimp and a few spoonfuls of the marinade then cook until the shrimp turn pink, about 2-3 minutes. Serve on top of  rice. Garnish with sesame seeds and green onion. Enjoy.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

Chewy Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

by Pam on January 10, 2013

My daughter had a friend come over after school for a play date and I wanted to make them something special to eat for their snack. I was thinking about making cookies but I didn’t want to load them up with so much butter & sugar. I decided on granola bars when I found this recipe on Tracey’s Culinary Adventures[1] that looked quick and easy to make. They were a big hit with both girls and my son too.

Coat an 8-inch square baking pan with cooking spray. Line the pan with parchment paper, leaving an overhang on opposite sides to lift the bars out easily afterward. Coat the parchment with cooking spray.

Add the brown sugar, honey, and butter to a small saucepan and set over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring frequently, until the sugar has dissolved. Bring the mixture to a simmer then reduce the heat to low and continue to cook for 1 more minute. Turn off the heat under the pan and stir in the vanilla extract.

Mix the oats and rice cereal together in a bowl until well combined. Pour the melted butter mixture over the oats & rice then stir with a rubber spatula until well combined. All of the dry ingredients should be moistened. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking pan. Spread in an even layer and press hard to make sure the mixture is compacted so the bars don’t turn out crumbly. Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top of the mixture and lightly press down on them with the spatula so they stick to the granola mixture.

Allow to set for at least 2 hours or into the refrigerator for 30 minutes to speed things up. Use the parchment handles to lift out then cut into bars. Individually wrap the granola bars with plastic wrap and store at room temperature.

Chicken Shiitake and Wild Rice Soup

Chicken, wild rice and mushrooms are combined in this rich and hearty soup – the perfect Fall comfort food.

We love this soup in my house, I originally posted this a few years ago and it’s become a staple in my home on chilly nights. I’ve tinkered with the original recipe so if you have an older printout, you may need to reprint this one. The photo also needed a serious make-over because I was still working when I first posted this in 2011, and I probably took the photo the next day.




It was originally a make-over requested from a reader who asked me to lighten up her original recipe, which was loaded with butter and heavy cream. The beauty of this soup is you really don’t need all the cream, because rice is a natural thickener for soups and it actually gets thicker the longer it sits (you may even need to add more water the next day before reheating to adjust the correct thickness to your taste.) I add a little sour cream at the very end to give it a touch of cream, and it’s just delicious (my husband loves it!)

For the wild rice combo, I use a Carolina Long Grain and Wild Rice packet. If you can’t find that brand, you could use Rice a Roni Long Grain and Wild Rice.[1][2]
