chinese & mongolian

Brandon got this amazing new rice cooker for Christmas from Mama & Papa Willett and we have been breaking it in with some tasty new dishes. It is quite the step up from our $7.00, two cup, mini-rice cooker from the last year and a half!

We took our first stab at Mongolian cooking. I can't say if we have ever had Mongolian before, so why not give it a try!

Mongolian Chicken Stew: A delicious combination of chickpeas, golden raisins, toasted almonds, cinnamon, curry powder, and garlic; stewed with green peppers, red onions, chicken, and tomato soup.

Last night we cooked Kung Pao Chicken (Jewell's favorite Chinese dish). This was a recipe we found on the blog Noodle Fever via If you have never perused the Tastespotting website you are missing out. It's the best place to get lost, at least that's what I think. Although, maybe not if you're on a diet.

It was our first attempt and we didn't have cornstarch so our sauce lacked that glossy look. However, it was one delicious and insanely, eye-watering spicy plate of food!
