Addictive Sesame Chicken
Sesame Chicken or sesame anything is my favorite Chinese dish, but I hardly ever get to eat it because the majority of places that serve this dish use MSG which my hubby is extremely sensitive to. Gives him a migraine any time he eats MSG. It is nice to find a recipe that is msg free and tastes excellent! I too coated the chicken in corn starch before I added it to the batter. I also added a little minced ginger to the sauce since I love a little ginger in my sesame sauce. I wanted something green and didn't have any traditional veges to go with this dish. All I had was some French asparagus. I cut them into 2 inch pieces, coated them in olive oil, sprinkled with garlic salt and powdered ginger, then coated in corn starch. I then fried them until they floated to the top of the oil. My hubby was raving about how good it was.

Homemade Vanilla Pudding
I began following the recipe using all the listed ingredients. I also mixed the cornstarch with the cold milk first as others suggested. Once the mixture thickened I decided the vanilla extract wasn't enough (probably would be better with a real vanilla bean), so I added a dash of almond extract. This gave it a little extra flavor. I was really craving some crème brulee, so after I cooled the mixture in dished , I sprinkled sugar on top and held them super close to the broiler until the sugar was bubbling. They came out super goooooood! Added some fresh mint from my garden and blueberries. Easy to make, with ingredients you usually already have. Definitely will make again!
