Come along with me as I journal about my latest cooking and gardening adventures. Discover what grows in my zone five garden, and see what new recipes I try from my cookbook collection each week.

As I share recipes and information from my kitchen, I invite readers to comment and share ideas along with me in this blog. I am looking to increase followers to my blog, so that I may learn more about cooking and gardening.

Since moving to Midland, Michigan, I have been reading and researching many cooking journals, cookbooks and collected recipes from the past thirty years. Organizing pictures of gardens I enjoy has also been a joy for me, as I continue to learn about garden design and horticulture.

bistro shrimp fried rice

i found this recipe online and it could be called a copycat recipe from p.f. Chang's, as the dish is very tasty. it could be made with shrimp or chicken.  i chose to use large shrimp which made the dish especially nice in presentation.  along with the rice, i added petite green peas, shredded carrots, and green onion.  it would be optional to add bean sprouts.  i used egg substitute, which is cooked first and then placed aside, while the other ingredients are stir fried.  i also prepared the rice early in the day, to decrease the preparation time during the dinner hour.

for the sauce, the recipe calls for Dijon mustard, minced fresh ginger, minced garlic, molasses, and light soy sauce.  the sauce and the egg are added last, after all the vegetables are cooked through and the rice is heated to serving temperature.

this is a great recipe for a summer meal or it could be used on a Chinese buffet for entertaining.
