Peanut Sauce Udon Noodles

3 Apr

Peanut Udon Noodle Salad

Every so often I want peanut sauce and I could put it on everything.

Tonight I put it over udon noodles and it was delicious.

2 tablespoons fresh ginger. Use only fresh.

4 cloves of garlic

3/4 cup  peanut butter

2/3 cup hot water

1/4 cup soy sauce

2 tablespoons vinegar

2 tablespoons sesame oil

2 teaspoons honey

One teaspoon red pepper flakes

One pound of udon noodles

1 chopped red pepper

3 diced scallions

Handful of diced cilantro

Sliced limes


Chopped peanuts

Hot sauce

Saute the garlic in the sesame oil for two minutes

Mix the ginger and garlic in the food processor and pulse till smooth

Add the sesame oil, peanut butter, water, soy sauce, vinegar, honey and red pepper flakes and pulse till smooth.

You may have to add some extra water to make it pourable.

Cook the udon according to the package directions. Drain.

Mix in a bowl with the peanut dressing

Place a bed of fresh spinach on each plate.

Place three to four heaping spoonfuls of udon on each plate.

Top with the scallions, red pepper, cilantro, chopped peanuts and limes.

This can be served hot or cold.

This recipe was originally from Epicurious but with a couple of changes now.


Nutty chicken sandwich

30 Jul

nutty chicken sandwich

I made a ton of grilled boneless chicken because I wanted leftovers for sandwiches.

I marinated the chicken in Mojo marinade and grilled it all.

My grandson wanted a peanut butter sandwich and then changed his mind.

By now you should realize that I never throw out anything.

So… I had a delicious potato roll with peanut butter on it.

I opened the roll and added a piece of grilled chicken.

Added a sliced scallion, a handful of arugula, a slice of grilled red pepper, a thin slice of a sweet pickle and a strip of bacon that was leftover from breakfast.

I know this was not the invention of the wheel but it is delicious.



Peanut Butter, Oatmeal, Dark Chocolate Raisin cookies

30 May


OMG this cookie is good.

One cup of chunky peanut butter

3/4 cup old fashion oatmeal

One beaten egg

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup white sugar

One teaspoon vanilla

3/4 cups  dark chocolate covered raisins

1/4 cup chocolate chips

Mix everything together except the chocolate and rasins.

After everything is mixed add the rest.

There will be a lot of raisins but that is fine with me.

You can decrease the amount if you want to.

Make a ball the size of a heaping teaspoon.

Flatten slightly with your hand.

Chill for about 30 minutes.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10  to 11 minutes.

Do not overcook or they become hockey pucks.

If you have any leftover, store in a plastic container or glass jar.

This is a recipe that Emeril  made with his son and I changed it by adding the oatmeal, raisins, chunky peanut butter, increasing  and decreasing the sugars and chocolate.

This is a great cookie with ice cream.
