Recently I scored a few set of chicken bones at the local Asian market. I’ve been making broth for different dishes using these chicken bones.  I love using the IP to make chicken stock.  It’s so easy, effortless and efficient.  I can turn 2-3 lbs of chicken bones ($2) into over 20 cups of chicken …

The other night I was able to whip up dinner in less than 30 minutes (with some minor prep).  The featured dish was Vietnamese Caramelized Shrimp which can be very addictive.  It was a little salty, a little sweet that had my son eating his rice non-stop.  To compliment this dish I made a light …

We recently went to a nice/trendy downtown eatery.  We noticed that there were selling chicken broth for about $5 for a 4-cup container (large Chinese soup carryout container) and people were buying them left and right.  I told my husband for $5 I could make IP broth for a whole village (a little exaggerated, I …

We love going to Costco and of course each time we always bring home a $4.99 Rotisserie Chicken.  What a deal so it’s hard to resist!  My kids love my “garlic chicken” which only consists of minced garlic saute shredded Rotisserie chicken meat, 2 tbsp of Maggie seasoning and sugar/mushroom seasoning to taste.  The boys …

So I like to ask the kids in the morning what they want Mommy to make for dinner.  I typically follow with “noodle soup?” hoping they would say yes… LOL.  My husband then pointed out that most of my recipes posted are of noodle soup of some sort.  So I went out of my way …

Pho means a lot to many Vietnamese including my husband. But for me Hu Tieu Mi means so much more! I think it’s because I grew up eating it. It’s also my Dad’s favorite noodle soup. When eating out at Vietnamese restaurants, my husband focuses mostly on the Pho section of the menu where I …

We recently learned of another Vietnamese Noodle Soup similar to Bún Riêu from a friend who visited us last year that got my husband very intrigued.  We both never had Canh Bun before. So I did some research to see what is so special about this noodle soup.  This is Bún Riêu’s sister with a …

How sweet is your sweet tooth? Mine is just awfully sweet.  I can eat dessert any time, any where.  I’d purposely look for things in the fridge or in the pantry to make dessert. Last night at 9 PM I made Che Ba Ba, a sweet coconut milk soup using leftover taro that I had …

In the world plentiful of food options, there is nothing more comforting to me than a nice hot bowl of noodle soup.  I don’t discriminate, I love noodle soup of all kinds.  Last week was a rough week at work.  I came home one night exhausted, beaten, felt like I fought several battles that day.  …

If you are like me and don’t like to cook whole chicken in the IP just for a few bowls of noodle soup then consider using chicken leg quarters.  Leg quarters consists of about a quarter of the chicken meat on the chicken, hence the name!  It includes a thigh, drumstick, and a part of the …
