Quick Korean Beef

Quick Korean Beef - Chew Nibble Nosh

I know, I know.  My Korean friends are probably rolling their eyes and looking at this like I’m crazy.  But, hear me out.

May is what’s CRAZY.  I have yet to talk to one parent of school aged children this month who isn’t completely bogged down with school projects, after school activities, end of the year recitals and concerts, class trips, sporting events, etc. etc. etc.  May is just nuts.

Oven Baked Hawaiian Chicken Kebabs

Oven Baked Hawaiian Chicken Kebabs -Chew Nibble Nosh

Sometimes, things just don’t go your way.  Like, when you’re planning on asking your husband to grill kebabs for dinner, so you have everything prepped and ready in the fridge for dinner time, and then your husband calls and says he has a last minute dinner meeting, and then it starts to pour.

When life hands you a dinner meeting and a sudden rainstorm, use your oven!  That was the lesson learned that day. These little guys are super easy to put together, and they were absolutely delicious.  A few minutes under the broiler, and my soggy-husbandless-grill dilemma was solved.

Korean Style Slow Cooker Short Ribs

Korean-Style Slow Cooker Short Ribs - Chew Nibble Nosh

You can usually tell how simplistic a meal is here on Chew Nibble Nosh by how many pictures there are of the process.  This meal was so easy to throw together, that I only have three pictures.  So, if you’re looking for quick and easy, and something you can just throw into the Crock Pot and walk away from, this is your meal.

It’s no secret that I love a good short rib, and I love sweet, salty Korean BBQ as well. Throw those two entities together, and I’m a happy camper.  After a few hours in the slow cooker, these short ribs are melt-in-your-mouth tender.  I served them alongside some steamed rice and broccoli, and they made for a delicious easy dinner for a busy night.

It’s Friday!  YAY!!!!!!

Boy, has this been a week!

After today, we only have one more week of school down here.  As anyone with kids in school knows, the last couple of weeks are CRAZY!  I’ve been so busy that my Moment of Zen this week was being able to sit down for a couple of hours while my car was being serviced at the dealership.  Kind of pathetic, eh?

Thankfully, we were all able to settle in together for dinner last night. I was short on time, but tried out this new recipe because it promised dinner in a flash.  It really was quick and easy, plus the fact that it tasted so good didn’t hurt either!

Citrus Marinated Roasted Chicken

I love a good roast chicken.  There’s just something homey and warm about a good, old-fashioned chicken dinner.  I have made countless roasted chicken recipes over the years.  I’ve fed my family some wonderfully flavorful, delicious chickens and some other chickens that we’d prefer not to remember.  I’m always on the lookout for another good roast chicken recipe and I was thrilled when I ran across this one in Fine Cooking magazine last week.

Brown Sugar Baked Salmon

I’ll be the first to admit that my cookbook collection is out of control.  My husband would probably argue that I’m a borderline cookbook hoarder.  Although, due to lack of space, my obsession has slowed down in recent years.  I have cookbooks stored in three different rooms of my house.  It’s kind of scary.
