What is french chocolate? It is a really thick creme mixture that you mix into hot milk for a rich, deep, hot chocolate. So if you are a lover of hot chocolate during this cold season this is a recipe you should try.

This recipe is not one that is new to me. I have had this eggnog recipe every year at Christmas since I was a little girl. Normal homemade eggnog is made with alcohol, and since I don't drink alcohol this is a great and perfect recipe for me to have, since the store bought eggnog leaves something to be desired.
I have very fond memories of helping my mom in the kitchen around Christmas time. But this was always my favorite drink to have while opening Christmas presents! ENJOY!

Anywho, here is a recent recipe that we tried out and really liked. I know, its chicken. Everything I post about is chicken. I can't help it if we like chicken a lot :)
This recipe is pretty simple and has great flavor. I always like when recipes have a dipping sauce because it allows me to control how much extra "zing" I want to go in each bite. I also really like the combination of almonds and sesame seeds in the coating of the chicken. They go REALLY well together!

stuffed peppers with but instead decided to whip up a homemade meat sauce instead. It turned out great! It involved ingredients that I had in my pantry and fridge, throw it all on the stove and let it simmer together to make a fantastic flavorful sauce!

This is my all time favorite dish to order when we go to Panda Express. Yes I realize spending an extra $1 is a lot of money especially when you only get like 4 shrimp...maybe but I love it. I love the crunchy candied walnuts and the sweet sauce on the shrimp..mm..mm.mmmm.
Like I said before, I have tried a few different recipes that I have found online and been given by friends and family and I didn't care for the sauce that much because it had way to much mayo for my liking and the flavor just wasn't quite on. So I played around with the ingredients and measurements a little bit and I think I got it right.
I hope you like it as much as we did.
