The Perfect Juice?!!

I bought a used juicer today.  On a whim.  We'll see how long this lasts.

Then I searched recipes on pinterest, and went to the grocery store.

$25 later I can probably make a dozen varieties of juice, easy.  I may have over done it.

My first juice was PERFECT.  I wanted a second batch right away!  It wasn't quite sweet enough to "fool" my kids, but I bet two strawberries dropped in there is all it would take, because, to ME, it was super balanced, not tart, didn't taste too "vegetable-y", and seriously, it was SO GOOD.

Instant Pot Ramen

Oh boy.  I'm obsessed with tonkotsu Ramen, but after a little google searching it was clear that I was not in the position to embark on any sort of authentic tonkotsu.  Today I decided to grab the instant pot and wing it, hoping I could secure the right flavors to fake a tonkotsu-ish ramen dish.

It wasn't the same milky broth I love, but the broth was TO DIE FOR!  I'm SO thrilled.  This is definitely how I will make ramen broth any time I have pork bones on hand.

The Best Mongolian Beef

I've been making a couple varieties of this recipe for several years now, and it's always a crowd pleasure.  Cheap, quick, easy, and flavorful.  I ultimately merged two recipes and have settled on what I think is the BEST way to make this dinner.  Yum!  Enjoy!

Asian-Style Green Beans

We typically like our green beans with butter, salt, and garlic, but occasionally dinner calls for a more Asian-inspired bean, and this recipe does the trick!  We love to serve these with The Best Mongolian Beef.
