Teriyaki chicken and noodles

Teriyaki Chicken & Noodle Stir Fry

I have a confession. I’ve always struggled cooking Chinese food! I feel confident in a lot of cooking and baking areas, but Chinese food has been my nemesis. I make a wonderful sweet and sour chicken…stir fry…not so much. Until my friends at JSL Foods Inc. sent me a box loaded with their Yakisoba Noodles. Now, not to steal Leonardo’s thunder…”I’m Queen of the Stir Fry!” Well, maybe not “Queen” but they have made making stir fry a million times easier and a bazillion times more delicious! Like my new Teriyaki and Veggie Noodle Stir Fry. I could eat this 4 times a week and be happy!

A large slice of chicken pot pie with chicken, vegetables and a flaky golden crust

Perfect Country Chicken Pot Pie

I love food! All food…but I really love comfort food! I know… it’s a word that’s tossed around a lot in the blogging world, but in all fairness, I have to say that the majority of foods fill a need. For some it’s comfort, for others happiness, joy, sorrow, sadness, or stress. I mean food feeds our emotions, as well as our bellies! If it didn’t there wouldn’t be so many foodies out there all looking for that one optimal dish.
One of my favorite “comfort” foods is Chicken Pot Pie. Maybe it’s the memories of those little frozen pies by banquet when I was kid, or maybe it’s because the combination of ingredients is like Thanksgiving in a pie shell? Whatever the reason, it’s still a favorite. I spent years looking for the perfect recipe and then just decided to make my own. I wanted one loaded with “the good stuff”! Lots of meat, vegetables, and a creamy gravy, all packed inside the perfect flaky crust. I hope you’ll agree…this pot pie is the perfect “comfort food”!
