Piwi noodle house

We enjoy all sorts of Asian noodle dishes. I am just not that great at cooking them. Piwi Dad enjoys Spicy Dan Dan noodles and there was no way I would have ever considered even attempting to make them. This all changed when I was asked to review Jaden Hair's Steamy Kitchen's Healthy Asian Favorites. 

Some how I didn't know about Jaden Hair's blog steamy If I had I would have been cooking up a noodle storm by now!

Dan Dan Mein  & 15 min Asian noodles (for the Piwi's)


The cover made me a little weary as it looked a bit fancy. However flicking through the pages on my laptop (it's a digital copy) I realized this was all the recipes for the kinds dishes (noodles and otherwise) we enjoy when we eat out. Even Piwi Daddy had a scroll through the  amazing photos and announced his approval.

Tonight I decided to try the recipe for Dan Dan Mein (from the book) and  15 minute Asian noodles (from the blog) The recipes were super easy to follow and I swear the dish was as good as we have had in a restaurant. The Piwi's actually didn't have anything to say as they were too busy eating. This is as high as praise gets from them! They are food critics in training lol. Next on my list is Vietnamese fresh rolls. Piwi Dad is dropping hints about the Pineapple-crab fried rice. The Piwi's are eyeing up the desserts chapter. This is definitely a book worth keeping in the kitchen for easy, healthy and tasty week night meals!
