1 1/4 cups long-grain brown rice
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 pound snow peas, trimmed and halved crosswise
4 garlic cloves, sliced
2 teaspoons fresh ginger, grated and peeled
3 tablespoons light-brown sugar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon red-pepper flakes
2 large egg whites
Coarse salt and ground pepper
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 tablespoons vegetable oil, such as safflower
Cook rice according to package instructions. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, stir together 1 tablespoon cornstarch and 1/2 cup cold water until smooth. Add snow peas, garlic, ginger, sugar, soy sauce, and red-pepper flakes; toss to combine, and set aside.
In another bowl, whisk together egg whites, remaining 3 tablespoons cornstarch, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add chicken, and toss to coat.
In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high. Lift half the chicken from egg-white mixture (shaking off excess), and add to skillet. Cook, turning occasionally, until golden, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a plate; repeat with remaining oil and chicken, and set aside (reserve skillet).
Add snow-pea mixture to skillet. Cover; cook until snow peas are tender and sauce has thickened, 3 to 5 minutes. Return chicken to skillet (with any juices); toss to coat. Serve with rice.

I made this pop-up card today. It was a bit of work but I am pretty happy with how it turned out. I was really excited to make a pop-up card but as I looked through my stamps I had a hard time finding one that would work for a cut out.
I took several pictures so that you can see how the pop-up works.
I used my Blooming with Happiness and Eastern Blooms stamp sets and the paper colors are Rose Red, More Mustard, and Kiwi Kiss.

I have had this paper called Recollections for a few years and have always liked it but I think I only used it once. I have been challenging myself to stop hording my paper and use it. I have been trying to use it on Scrapbook pages since I will be keeping those for a long time but I wanted to make some cards and this is what I can out with.

Has anyone else notice how all my food pictures kind of look the same. I guess I like yellow food a lot since that seems to be the color of most the food I have posted.
Those of you who know me pretty well know I don't like fish. I like shrimp and sea scallops but other than that I stay away from food that's home was the ocean or water. But at our last enrichment we did a potluck and everyone brought things to eat and they were also suppose to bring the recipe. Well we didn't get a very good turn out only 5 of us were there but Sister Vivian Leman made this fish dish and I loved it. So I decided to give it a try for our Valentine's dinner since James really likes fish and I thought it would be a special treat for him.
I will do my best since the recipe was a little of this and a sprinkle of that.
1 lb. Cod fish, skin and bones removed
1 golden delicious apple, peeled, cored and sliced
6 slices of swiss cheese
1 T. fish salt
1/3 c. butter
1/3 c. flour
1-1/2 to 2 c. flour
1 t. curry powder
Lay fish in a 9x9 glass baking dish. Sprinkle with fish salt and sliced apples. Lay swiss cheese on top of apples. In a sauce pan melt butter and add flour to make a rue. Cook slightly until light brown color stirring constantly. Slowly add milk until a white sauce is made. Stir in curry powder and pour over fish. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

You can't tell from this picture but flowers are deep like a box. The bad things about this card is that you really can't put it in a envelope since that would smash the window. I have really fallen in love with the Urban Garden paper. These colors are so rich but soothing. The card took a bit of work but I am happy with how it turned out.

Here are a few cards I made with the Stampin' up paper called Urban Garden. The first one is pretty simple but I think the patterned paper holds it's own. The second card I used the Upsy Daisy and the Dreams du jour set. I embossed them white right onto the patterned paper. I just love the Not Quite Navy, Kiwi Kiss and Soft Sky paper combination.
