Irresistibly Golden Beer Battered Fried Mushrooms #SundaySupper

My husband adores fried mushrooms. I mean, adores them. Me? I’m more of an onion ring gal.

But this post isn’t about me or “my kind.” It’s about men, and “men food” which is why I chose to make these Beer Battered Fried Mushrooms… for him, and for all others like him (i.e. men) who love fried mushrooms…and beer! 🙂

Spicy Thai Pulled Pork with Orange for the Slow Cooker

However, if you’re not prepared to wait until summer to make this delicious Spicy Thai Pulled Pork with Orange, I completely understand! If I was you, I’d think up a reason to have friends and family over as soon as possible (maybe for an impromptu game night), just so you can make and serve these amazing sandwiches! I promise you won’t regret it one bit!!

Healthy Nutritious Chicken with Strawberry Satay Sauce #SundaySupper

Since a traditional satay sauce is peanut butter based, I thought I’d do a play on a PB & J by adding in season, plump and juicy Florida strawberries to the satay sauce. The result is a sweet and savory dipping sauce which pairs wonderfully well with grilled chicken. To say the kids will love this dish of Chicken with Strawberry Satay Sauce is an understatement! After all, who wouldn’t love a dipping sauce that tastes like a peanut butter and strawberry jelly sandwich?

Fresh Healthy Broccoli Salad from Valerie’s Home Cooking Cookbook

The majority of the recipes you’ll find here on Kudos Kitchen are my own original creations. However, from time to time because of my blog I’m approached by publishing houses about doing cookbook reviews. This post (and the recipe for Healthy Broccoli Salad) is one such review. All the opinions I share are 100% my own.

Tasty Chinese Ground Pork Egg Roll Bowl Kudos Kitchen Style

This recipe for a Ground Pork Egg Roll Bowl is my take on a deconstructed egg roll. In place of the crispily fried eggroll wrapper, I’ve used chow mein noodles for crunch as a top garnish along with scallions, and chopped peanuts (which are completely optional). The other ingredients I’ve used are basic Chinese staple pantry ingredients. While there may be quite a few ingredients, they’re invaluable to have in your cupboards for cooking Asian cuisine throughout the year. Invest in them once and you’ll be all set for whenever you have a craving for Chinese food, but don’t want to do take-out.

Festive Shrimp Cocktail Appetizer Bites

For the recipe I’m sharing today, I’ve made a homemade cocktail sauce. However, please feel free to use your favorite variety of store-bought cocktail sauce if that is your preference. Having said that, there are only three ingredients in my homemade cocktail sauce; ketchup, horseradish (add as much or as little as you like), and smoked paprika. Save money and make your own at home. You’ll be glad you did!

Easy Oktoberfest Crescent Wrapped Bratwurst Bites with Sauerkraut Dipping Sauce

My family (well, me really) goes crazy for all things German when fall arrives and the leaves start to change. This simple recipe utilizes flavorful German bratwurst which is wrapped in store bought crescent rolls and then baked. The easy sauerkraut dipping sauce the the perfect accompaniment to these tasty little bites.

Deliciously Easy Italian Sausage Caprese Sandwich

Since we live in the Midwest, my husband and I are all about sausages. He’s partial to Italian sausage, and I’m partial to bratwurst. I can easily eat a sausage without a bun to keep the carb level low, but he’s all about a bread and meat combo.
