Bengali-Style Chinese Noodles

July 11, 2016

This is a comfort food dish from my childhood that I love even to this day. It would make appearances on potluck dinner tables, a welcome reprieve to all the traditional Bengali dishes like pullao, korma, dal, vegetables, various beef/chicken/fish curries. I also remember eating it for lunch with my cousins when we’d go visit […]

Fideo con Pollo (Mexican-style Chicken and Noodles)

May 4, 2015

This is one of those recipes that I like more and more every time I make it.  It’s not a coincidence that I first tried it in the fall when the weather began cooling down and warm comfort food was just what we wanted. Plus it’s all made in one pan, so there’s less to […]

*CLOSED* Fiery Confetti Noodles + Dreamfields Pasta Giveaway

March 10, 2014

I don’t know about you, but I’m over all this yucky cold weather and ready for some sunshine and warmth.  Luckily for me, we’ve had some very nice spring-ish weather the past couple days here in Atlanta.  Not so lucky for me, I’m in the middle of tax season. Boo! During the fall and winter, […]

A Taste of China: Xi’an Eats

December 9, 2010

Have I whetted your appetite for our Xi’an eats?  I hope so?  Just looking at some of the pics brings back memories and makes me wish I could go back for one last taste. Our first meal in Xi’an was not Chinese food — it was Japanese! Just outside where the Giant Wild Goose Pagoda […]

Must be Monday . . .

February 22, 2010

Because I wish it was still the weekend!  🙂 We had the most gorgeous weather this weekend and I took full advantage of it — my legs are making me pay today!  I already wrote about how I attempted a Couch to 5K workout on Saturday.  Yesterday my legs were in agony but I couldn’t […]

Good start, bad finish

February 18, 2010

I’m entering dangerous territory here. I’ve been doing pretty good about getting up in the mornings and getting exercise in.  My eating hasn’t been stellar, but it’s a lot better than what it was a couple months ago. So what’s so bad about that?  The scale refuses to acknowledge my efforts.  On some level I […]

Eat Smart Grab n’ Go Cups — Product Review

February 10, 2010

Those of you who have been reading Spice’s Bites for a while know that when I’m pressed for time, I rely on pre-prepared veggies to make life easier and healthier. I’m no stranger to Eat Smart’s products — I regularly buy their bags of pre-cut broccoli and cauliflower, as well as their stir-fry mix and […]

Super Blah

February 7, 2010

I have just been off the whole day.   Mother Nature can keep her crappy gift and that’s all I’m going to say about it. Before I talk about today’s eats, I’d like to back to up to dinner last night.   Mr. Spice and I went to our friend Lopa’s place for some dinner with our […]

What pho?

December 12, 2009

So today we were out and about in the Norcross/Duluth area and decided to hit up a few places like Super H-Mart. We stocked up on stuff like Korean/Japanese ramen, frozen gyoza, shrimp chips, and Pocky. I even found some new bento boxes (like I need more) and grabbed a few more to give away […]

Double-header: General Tso’s Chicken and Veggie Lo Mein

May 26, 2009

I think it’s safe to say that it’s no surprise that two of my favorite things to order in a Chinese restaurant are also two of the most fat and calorie-laden choices. It’s nice how things work out like that. Given those circumstances, it’s also fairly safe to say that these two items are high […]
