Instant Pot Lo Mein

I love a good lo mein …. my kids on the other hand, do not. I thought this would be one of the those recipes my kids would love, but they complained all through dinner about how gross it was, it was chewy and disgusting. My daughter even forbid me to never make this recipe again. My husband and I thought it was really good and was packed full of flavor. I might try it again and switch out the sesame oil and see if my kids like it then…..thought I’m not sure I want to hear the complaining again if they don’t. Ha!

This recipe can easily be switched out to include whatever veggies you have on hand. I made it a meatless dish, but a piece of grilled chicken, steak or shrimp would be a great addition.

Quick Beef Stroganoff

Winter break is over and it’s time to get back to school, work and all the usual activities we have going on. I’m always on the hunt for quick and easy dinners that I can whip together during the week and this definitely was one of them!

I love stroganoff and even though my family is not a huge fan, I make it every now and then. This recipe reminds me of growing up and my mom making the stroganoff version of hamburger helper. You could easily substitute ground turkey for the ground beef for a lighter version.

Hoisin-Glazed Salmon Noodle Bowls

I’m always looking for quick recipes to make during the week and this recipe was prepped and cooked within 30 minutes. We’re big fans of salmon and I love stopping at this specialty seafood store across the street from one of our offices. Everything I’ve bought from them is so fresh and everything tastes amazing.

My kids gobbled this up – yes even my picky 3-year-old! He’s currently asking me to make it for dinner tomorrow night because he’s “helping” me blog about it. This was the first time I’ve made rice vermicelli and I need to work on my technique. All the noodles stuck together, so I’m thinking I need to try them again. They tasted great though! Plus you can’t go wrong with anything glazed with hoisin!
