All Purpose Stir Fry Sauce

All Purpose Stir Fry Sauce

I don’t think there’s any time of year that isn’t “right” for a fresh, quick stir fry, but I gotta admit I love making them especially in the summer!  The thing is, I’m not always into measuring out a lot of ingredients for a sauce and I’m not that thrilled about some of the bottled or packets sauces at the store or the frozen options. They’re always quick and easy but it’s not a biggie to mix up your own “Universal” All Purpose Stir Fry Sauce at home.

Homemade Canadian Donair

Homemade Canadian Donair

These days simple do-able recipes with a high pay off have been my mainstay. Do Homemade Canadian Donair qualify? I think so. And while these sandwiches might look restaurant quality (and the idea DID come from one, Occo Kitchen & Bar, I saw on Diner’s, Drive-Ins & Dives and here’s the video) these lovely Canadian versions of the Gyro are much easier than you’d guess,. especially if you view it as a mostly a “make ahead” meal. Gotta love that!

Southwestern Stuffed Peppers

Southwestern Stuffed Peppers

Sometimes I think a bell pepper can be stuffed with just about anything but I gotta tell you these easy Southwestern Stuffed Peppers are really a standout. They have the fun flavor of tacos but are fresher, lighter, and lower carb, and can I just say, stuffed with mostly pantry ingredients? And cheese. And ground beef, chicken or turkey (or just go vegetarian.) And then, well, more cheese.
