This mom loves to cook

Hello! I'm Deirdre and I'm a stay at home mom to two boys. Cooking for a 6 and 4 year old- day in and day out can be the best job in the world, also the most frustrating. Trying to create not only kid friendly but husband and mom friendly meals is a challenge that I've readily accepted! My Foodie Mom blog is a record of the different recipes that I've tried in the kitchen, pictures of my ventures, and cool tricks I've picked up along the way. Cheers!

Easy Fried Rice

I was going to be making orange chicken last week, and I needed a fast yummy side to go with it. I had seen this recipe on Pinterest before and decided to give it a try. 


  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 cup of frozen peas and carrots
  • 1 teaspoon of minced garlic
  • 3 cups of cooked brown rice
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • olive oil
  • soy sauce (to taste)
  • sesame oil (to taste)
Start off with adding a little olive oil in a skillet, over medium high heat sauté the onions, garlic and frozen veggies.

Cook for about 5 minutes until everything is soft and cooked through. Move all of the veggies over to one side of the pan, and add the eggs on the empty side. 

Allow to cook for a minute or two, when it is mostly cooked add in with the veggies and continue to sauté until all the egg is cooked though. Stir in the cooked brown rice, add soy sauce and sesame oil to taste.

This was quick and very yummy. The kids actually ended up liking this more than the orange chicken itself. Cheers!
