Cold Noodle Salad - Episode 114

Notes

Cold Noodle Salad is one of my favorite ways to eat fresh noodles. Your ingredient options are endless when making a Cold Noodle Salad, which means that there are endless variations of Cold Noodle Salad itself. I wanted to make something that was quick and easy for a weekday meal. But the best part of this quick and easy recipe, is knowing that you're not sacrificing the quality of your food, just because it is quick and easy. Fast food doesn't always have to be bad.

The key to any cold noodle salad, is the quality of the noodle itself. JSL Foods is the creator of Fortune, one of the best pre-cooked noodle brands available. Not only are their noodles good for you by being cholesterol free and MSG free, but they also taste great. I used the Yakisoba Teriyaki noodles for this recipe, added some fresh veggies, grilled tofu, and pineapple, and the results were amazing. Fresh ingredients always result in a better meal, give this one a try. You'll love it.

And remember, the stores where you can purchase the JSL Foods products are Acme, Genuardi's, Smiths Marketplace, Albertson's Bashas, Safeway, Fry's, WinCo, and Target.

I am a big fan of the Fortune brand noodles, and hope you will be too. You can follow JSL Foods on social media through their Facebook and Twitter accounts.

How to Cut a Whole Chicken - Episode 111

How to Cut a Whole Chicken is probably one of the essential kitchen skills that everyone should know. Not only is is super fast, and super easy, it will also save you money, a lot of money. I bought this whole chicken at my local grocery store for $3.50 and cut it myself. What I got was 10 pieces of chicken and a large pot of chicken broth to save for a soup recipe later down the road. Buying 10 pieces of pre-cut chicken and 3 or 4 cans of broth would easily cost more than triple. Not only is it a great way to save money, but cutting a whole chicken only takes about five minutes, or less if you're good.
