Chinese take-out, without the take-out price (or tipping the delivery boy).
This was delicious and tasted just like Chinese take-out (without the cost and the wait time). I served this with a side of edemame (yum!). This would also taste lovely with chicken in it. Cut chicken breast into thin strips on the bias and coat with corn starch. Saute in canola oil until chicken is cooked through. You can find all the ingredients you need for this recipe at Wegmans, Landis or Redner's Warehouse. Ingredients Directions

Making, and then eating, this treat is a great parent-child activity.
With the beginning of school lurking around the corner, enjoying the last days of sweet summer freedom with your children is on the top of most parents’ to-do lists. With the rain impeding most outdoor activities, spend some quality time in the kitchen making sweet (very, very sweet) memories with these Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudgies. Or, if you prefer, switch out the peanut butter for white chocolate chips. Not only are they a lot of fun to make, but serve them warm with some ice-cold milk and they are delicious! Or, serve with a big bowl of your favorite ice cream for a perfect summertime treat. You might even forget how dreary it’s been! Find all of the ingredients you need for this sweet, ooey, gooey cookies at Wegmans, Redner’s …

This one-pot dish offers a seafood substitute.
I traveled to Spain last year, and, besides the endless array of tapas (small plates perfect for in between meal snacking), my travel partner and I couldn’t get enough paella. Neither of us eats seafood (Atraditional paella ingredient is mussels.), but we found plenty of places that served it up sans crustaceans. This take on paella comes from the Extremadura region of Spain, the western region of Spain, which has a culinary focus on pork, chicken, ham and sausage. Some even say that chorizo was born here. This is a fabulous one-pot dish (less clean up!) that makes enough for four. (It's easily doubled for more and makes wonderful leftovers.) The saffron can be expensive, but adds a beautiful color and unique flavor to the dish. However…
