Homemade Chinese night

About a week ago I was craving Chinese. I knew I had a few recipes saved in Pinterest, so I headed over to see what I had.  I had saved a recipe from a blog called Life as a Lofthouse for baked sweet and sour chicken. She also had a recipe for fried rice, so I made both. Rumor on Pinterest was that this chicken was addicting. I can attest to that! It will be put into rotation on my menu plan for sure!!

I got ready to cook and pulled out my Xyboard from Verizon. It’s an awesome tool to have in my kitchen. I can access all the recipes that I have on Pinterest while also being able to stream music from the I Heart Radio app.

This recipe was a huge hit with all the family. Monkey absolutely loved it and had thirds! (Keep in mind I only give the kids a few bites to start, because I hate wasted food when they don’t like it.) I’m not going to post the whole recipe as I didn’t really do anything to change things up, but I really do think you should head over to try these Chinese recipes at Life as a Lofthouse.

Note: I was given the Xyboard as part of the Verizon Wireless Savvy Gourmet campaign. All opinions are my own. 

About Paula

Paula Krueger considers herself a “baby “chef, not because she cooks for babies, but because she’s still learning how to cook. She started this blog after taking Wilton method classes and at that point was more interested in baking. She’s since become more interested in learning to cook as her family has grown. She also covers product reviews and travel as well.
