Comfort Food At its Best

There are days where we have had a bad day, something emotional might have happened, personal issues, or just that your day may have been rough at school, work, in a social setting, a disappointment and sometimes you just feel like over-eating more than the norm, but on comfort food. Sometimes there does not have to be a bad day, some people indulge on comfort food whenever they like. I know they say in moderation, but sometimes you cannot contain yourself and control the amount that goes into your body, but once in a while it is perfectly okay to over-eat or to cheat days where you feel like you need to have carbs and a little bit of sugar in your body.

Sometimes in the spare of the moment, you feel like heading to your local convenient, grocery store, restaurant and just grabbing a bite to eat, or loading your shopping cart with all these snacks, comfort food, and goodies. Its alright to do it once in a while I guess right? :).

What gets your taste buds rolling? My Comfort food at its best includes a variety of things which keep me going when I have a rough day, or when I have had a good day too. It does not matter.

Talin’s Famous Sweet & Sour Cashew Chicken Stir Fry…

One of my passions in life is cooking and I love to spend time in the kitchen coming up with new types of dishes to feed my family. I really enjoy cooking and it gives me time to think about things and everything else on a personal level. My Famous Sweet & Sour Cashew Chicken Stir Fry is loved by my family and I will be making it for friends very soon. Here is how to make this scrumptious and delicious dish:

Ingredients Required:

Brown Sugar, All Purpose Seasoning, Garlic Cloves, Light Soya Sauce, Cashews, Green Peppers, Red Peppers, Red Onions, Celery Sticks, Boneless Chicken Thighs or Strips for Stir Fry, All Spice.

To Make the Sauce:

2-3 table spoons of Brown Sugar, 2 teaspoons of All Purpose Seasoning, 3 garlic cloves crushed or chopped, 3 tablespoons of Light Soya Sauce, 1 teaspoon of All Spice.

Mix the sauce ingredients together, then add about 2 table spoons of Olive Oil…. let the sauce ingredients incorporate with each other for abour 10-15 minutes while you chop up your vegetables.

Ingredient to put first in the WOK OR DEEP PAN — NON STICK PAN

 In a 3 teaspoon fulls of Olive Oil – Cook the Chicken Stirfry meat thoroughly until well done, but on Medium heat, not on high… After Put in the Chopped onions. Chop them into stir fry bits. put in about 2 or 3 onions. Let them cook together for about 5-10 minutes…. Then you put in all your chopped vegetables. After doing so, the sauce you prepared for your stirfry you put them in.

TO Prepare the Cashews (Remember the Cashews and the Sauce are the main sources of Flavour)

In a separate pan, use a small pan and put in about 1 cup full of Cashews, and put about 2 tablespoon fulls of Unsalted butter, or Olive Oil…. DO NOT OVERCOOK the Cashews… Get them to be slightly golden brown…. After you put the cashews into the cooked stirfry and you serve immediately. You do not want the crunchiness of the cashews to be mushy. Serves around 4-5 people….

With the Chicken Stir fry you have an option to cook it with noodles if you like, on the side of it you can cook brown or regular parboiled rice.

there you have it!

Nice and easy and healthy too!
