Kung Pao Chicken

Baker Bettie Asian, Chicken, Chinese, Savory 0 Comments

Kung Pao Chicken is a traditional sichuan dish that is very easy to make and comes together in under 30 minutes! The flavors of Kung Pao Chicken are very unique in that they call for Sichuan Peppercorns, which bring a very unusual slightly numbing sensation to the palette. But it is quite addicting!  Mrs. BB: Happy Sunday everyone! I’m starting a new series today that I’m really excited about and it involves the love of my life! You see, I have this husband, who I refer to as Mr.BB, and he came to me with an idea for this series …

Chicken Noodle Soup-Pho Fusion

Baker Bettie Chicken, Savory, Soups & Stews 6 Comments

 This is a chicken noodle soup pho fusion dish, similar to pho ga, but with egg noodles and a mash up of flavors of American chicken noodle soup and Vietnamese pho!  I moved away from Kansas for the first time in my life to Austin, TX in 2010. I went to work at the state hospital there as a music therapy intern. It was exciting and terrifying. I was in a new city, with a new job, around new people. I was very lucky in that I had family there and was able to stay with my aunt since I …


Sweet and Spicy Asian Wings

Baker Bettie Appetizers, Chicken, Savory 5 Comments

This sweet and spicy Asian hot wings recipe is baked under the broiler and result in really crispy skin and a bit of char which makes them absolutely addictive!  I’m totally a borderline crazy cat lady. I am. And I totally accept that. It wasn’t until I met my husband who had a cat and then he insisted on getting another one. They have become my family. I’m that obnoxious lady that can’t stop taking pictures of them doing cute things. If you follow me on instagram, beware you will be bombarded with food porn and videos of my cats trying to steal …

Baker Bettie Chicken, Paleo, Savory 7 Comments

You may not realize through the blur of butter and sugar on this blog that I do enjoy eating healthy. I actually prefer it. I think a combination of healthy meals mixed with a treat here and there is the perfect balance. That is why I am really excited about my new partnership with MOTTO. MOTTO is an online fitness hub that helps those who don’t have time or can’t afford to go to the gym find the resources they need to reach their goals.  They’ve taken the features from our neighborhood gyms and put them in the cloud. MOTTO and …


Baked Cheesy Chicken Egg Rolls

Baker Bettie Appetizers, Chicken, Savory 23 Comments

These baked chicken egg rolls are so easy to make! Wonton wrappers are stuffed with shredded chicken, and tons of cheese and baked to a crispy perfection! Things are finally starting to feel settled here in Philly. It is starting to actually feel like this is where we really live. Things that I’m loving so far: #1: The culture of walking everywhere. Yeah sure, I could have walked 2 miles to the store in Kansas (and I guess I did occasionally) but people just don’t do that as much there and I don’t have a car here so I’m kind of …


Broiled BBQ Buffalo Wings

Let’s say you are in the middle of this intense raw food detox because you’ve been eating waaay too much sugar and your body is pissed! And let’s say you are really committed to this, despite the fact that you have been craving everything in sight. Let’s also say that your husband is on the exact complete opposite diet, and asks begs you to make hot wings for game day. So you do this for him, even though it is torture. You can’t and won’t eat it even though you know how delicious it is going to be. Do you …


Chicken Pot Pie Casserole

Baker Bettie Casseroles, Chicken, Fall, Savory 17 Comments

This week hasn’t felt like real life. I have been in a daze. A hangover of vacation. And the “back to the real world” has been hard to adjust to. We got back from Costa Rica just about a week ago. Why do I always feel like I need a vacation AFTER my vacation. Just a few more days (or a week) built in to get up the motivation to unpack, get the laundry caught up, realize that I actually have to figure out my own meals, and adjust to the grind of work again. But I think I am …
