I love recreating take-out recipes at home. You know exactly what’s going into your dish, and the homemade version is ALWAYS better without a doubt. And this Panda Express copycat is no exception. Best of all, you can make this in less than 20 minutes! How easy is that?

So our move back to Los Angeles has officially begun. The movers came yesterday and after 8 very long hours, they packed everything into a truck and started making their way down south. We will be meeting them at our new place on Monday but until then, we will be cruising along the California coast with our puppy.
