Paht Thai Noodles

January 30, 2009

For Christmas, I received this cookbook, Quick & Easy Thai by Nancie McDermott, and was able to try some recipes back at home.    This was the best recipe out of the few I tried – as I love Pad Thai noodles.   I highly recommend this book.    Despite the number of ingredients, it is very easy to cook.   Just make sure you have everything ready to throw in the wok because it cooks really fast.   At the dinner table, it was also devoured really quick too!   Enjoy!



Pan Seared Rib Eye

January 6, 2009

I wasn’t a big steak guy before, but I’m trying the South Beach diet in 09 .    About a couple days in, I have had a craving for red meat so I picked up one of these rib eyes at Giant Eagle.    I also got a cast iron skillet for Christmas so decided to give this a go.   It was blown away, it was so good and perfect… I like it medium rare too + they have time adjustments for medium.   No sauce necessary + just the salt and cracked pepper.  Yum!
