Kung Pao Chicken

Kung Pao Chicken

Kung Pao chicken is a spicy Chinese stir-fry made with bite-sized chicken, peanuts, vegetables and chili peppers. Although authentic Kung Pao derives its distinctive flavors from the use of Sichuan peppercorns, this classic Szechuan dish has been heavily adapted over the years to accommodate western tastes and availability of ingredients. In my version, I add zucchini,…

Egg in a Nest

Egg in a Nest

Like the avocado egg cups I posted here some months ago, this egg in a nest was inspired by a pin I discovered on Pinterest. When I followed the link, I was not suprised in the least to find that it was a Pioneer Woman’s recipe on Food Network. She is, afterall, the Queen of Yumminess….

Here I am (finally) with a spankin’ fresh recipe, spinach-stuffed chicken. In this delightful dish, chicken breasts are filled with creamed spinach and rolled in seasoned Panko crumbs. The stuffed chicken parcels are then baked in the oven until moist and gooey in the inside and golden and crisp on the outside. They’re wonderful paired with a…

Planning your Superbowl shindig? Guys, these Italian meatballs are a must! Plump, juicy, moist, flavorful, they’ll surely be the first to disappear on your buffet table.

Cajun Buffalo Chicken Bites

With a recipe archive heavy on jalapeno poppers, sweet chili bacon-wrapped chicken tenders and beef taquitos, it is safe to assume I am all about fun foods. Every year, I look forward to Superbowl, not because I can tell a linebacker from a quarterback, but because I can’t get enough of the fabulous game day…

Huevos Rancheros

It seems for the last 6 months or so, every time I post a new recipe here, I’ve been apologizing about the wide gaps and my long absence. Alright, I am not going to give you anymore excuses. I am not going to give you the excuse that I probably bit more than I can…

Cheese-Stuffed Anaheim Peppers

Southwestern Quinoa Salad

I have to admit, this is the very first time I’ve ever tried quinoa. Before today, I didn’t even know how to pronounce the darn seed.  I went to our nearby Sprouts Market looking for kwuh-NO-ah and I was greeted by blank stares. “Oh, you mean KEEN-wah?”, answered an employee after I repeated myself for…

Potato Meatball Crockpot Stew

I know, I know. The photo doesn’t leave much to get excited about. But my favorite people, let not this potato meatball crockpot stew be judged by my uninspired picture taking.  Just imagine coming home after a day’s labor to chock full of meatballs, potato chunks and baby carrots swimming in a creamy, flavorful broth….

Cheese-Stuffed Anaheim Peppers

One of the most shared and most pinned recipe here at Onion Rings and Things is the bacon-wrapped cheese stuffed anaheim peppers I posted last year. Can’t blame ya, folks. With crisp bacon, creamy cheese and spicy peppers all in one bite, they’re pretty hard to resist. Seriously good stuff. But as much as I…
