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.

Best Ever Santa’s Favorite Sugar Cookies & Family Memories

When we got married, and Mark and I started our own family, there were certain traditions I wanted to continue from when I was a little girl and hopefully pass along to our two boys. These cookies were one of the things I incorporated throughout the years to fondly rekindle my joyous Christmas memories. I am happy to report that our boys (now grown) feel exactly the same way about these cookies as I did, and still do to this day.  Christmas just wouldn’t be the same without Santa’s Favorite Sugar Cookies.

New Year’s Eve Appetizer & Cocktail Recipe Roundup – Friday’s Featured Foodie Feastings

I always enjoy a gathering of appetizers where I can pick and choose my favorites, and pile them on a plate one by one. I think there’s something in my brain that tells me that, because they’re small, the calories don’t count as much…so please don’t burst my bubble. After all, diet season is right around the corner so I can and will worry about those pesky additional pounds then. Until then…Happy New Year! Let’s Party!!

Buttery Sweet Pistachio Cranberry Snowball Cookies

I adapted this recipe from one I shared back in 2010 called pecan snowball cookies. I was going to do a recipe re-do where I updated the photos in the original post. However, before I knew it, my brain was adding the festive red and green elements of pistachios and dried cranberries, and omitting the pecans altogether. The result is utterly delicious. I do hope you’ll make these Buttery Sweet Pistachio Cranberry Snowball Cookies. I know you’ll love them just as much as we do!
