Chicken Fried Rice

Chicken Fried Rice is one of my favorite things to order when we go out to eat. Now we make it at home, thanks to my husband’s delicious recipe, and it’s so much better than takeout. Plus you can use the leftovers to make Chicken Fried Rice Spring Rolls, yet another one of our favorite Asian foods!

My family loves Asian food. Though I'm not sure chicken fried rice is truly authentic, it's one of my favorite things to get when we go out to eat or order take-out.

Last week we found out that baby #3 is on the way. Even though it's been almost 8 years since our last pregnancy, I still just know when I'm pregnant. Oh wait, I know what it is. It's the nausea and the blahs and that feeling that rises up in me, "What the heck is going on with my body?!". That feeling... If you've ever been pregnant, you know it {Read More...}
