I’m about to get really candid here. I’ve been going through some tummy issues for the past 3 weeks and have realized that I am completely backed up (I think you know what that means). My immediate thought was “How can I get rid of this feeling a.s.a.p.?”. If anyone else has been in my situation, you can understand the frustration. So this is a recipe but also a little lesson on how to get past this ‘blockage’. I’ve found many words for this without having to say the C word!
When I first moved away from home at the age of 18, I was clueless in the kitchen. The only appliance I knew how to use was my George Forman grill that I would cook chicken breasts straight from frozen on–so you could imagine my recipe repertoire was lacking if not non-existent.
If I had to pick out ONE meal in my childhood that made my heart beat, it was my dad’s Sweet & Sour Chicken Balls. I honestly had dreams about them but I never made them for myself because they seemed like a lot of work (needed a deep fryer and I had to actually cut meat with my bare hands).
I’ve developed a serious hate for store bought salad dressing once I’ve discovered this super easy, simple and delicious Balsamic Dressing recipe. Its perfect in every way and a great base to add more to as well.
I used to be a ketchup girl but now rarely will I order fries without some sort of aioli for dipping my guilty pleasure in.
