Egg Roll in a Bowl

I hear you guys HATE when we tell stories before giving you the recipe. Guess what? We are story tellers and we want you to know what inspires us to create or duplicate or emulate the things we share. It comes from love...and we hope that our readers enjoy our stories.

You suckers don't though, do you?!

Fine. No story today. Here is the recipe for Egg Roll in a favorite way to prepare it. For me, this is 3 servings. It's mostly veggies so I don't feel too horrible about that. 

Egg Roll in a Bowl


1 pound of mild sausage (or ground chicken, beef, turkey, or meat substitute)

16 oz bag of coleslaw mix (or shredded cabbage and carrots)

½ cup chopped mushrooms

½ cup sliced onions – I use a mix of red and white onions

3 cloves garlic – chopped

1 teaspoon of ginger (I use pureed)

3 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce

2 tablespoons rice vinegar

½ teaspoon ground white pepper

*Olive oil as needed

Suggested toppings: sesame seeds, chopped green onions, sriracha


*If you are using a lean variety of meat, or meat substitute, you may need to use a little olive oil so it doesn’t stick to the pan.

Over medium heat, cook the sausage (or other meat-or meat substitute) until browned, crumbling it as it cooks. Once the meat is browned, add the mushrooms and stir to mix.

If the meat produces a lot of fat, drain all but about two teaspoons.

Move the meat/mushroom mixture to the edges of the pan, forming an opening in the middle of the pan. If your meat doesn’t produce any fat, add about 2 teaspoons of olive oil.

Add the onions, garlic, and ginger and stir until fragrant – about 1 minute.

Add the soy sauce, rice vinegar, and white pepper and stir everything together.

Add the bag of coleslaw mix.

Continuously stir until the vegetables wilt down, about 5 minutes.

Top with sesame seeds, green onions, and sriracha and enjoy!

Dial Vitamin Boost Giveaway

Howdy folks! Dial sent me a bottle of their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash to test out. They even sent me a few coupons to give away to you guys! Don't they ROCK?! Yeah they do, and so does this new body wash! I got the product a few weeks ago, but as is with most things that come to my house, it just sat in the living room unopened. Not because I didn't want to open it...but I've been a little short on time. Even with several snow days it seems like I just don't have enough hours in a day. Does that mean I don't wash? NOOOO. It means that this body wash just made it upstairs with me this morning! LOL I'm always skeptical about "moisturizing" body washes. I have extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin. So I really have to be careful. Even some washes that claim to be triple moisturizing dry me out and leave me wishing I had one of those cat towers to rub up against. So I finally got to test the waters with this one. Here are what this product c

Dial Baby & Kids (Giveaway)

Let me start by saying that the toddler years are fun...and a true test of faith and patience LOL! I love my little tot with everything I have in me. But every day she tests my limits in way I didn't even know were possible. I mostly laugh. She is a very spirited little girl who LOVES to be outside. I mean she will cry to go outside and sometimes all she wants to do is climb in a chair and sit on the porch and watch the cars go by. On this particular day though...(Jesus be a fence) she wanted to chase lizards, pop bubbles, shred leaves, kick her ball in the sticker bushes and throw a flower pot off the deck to see how far she could get it to go. Maybe softball is in her future, who knows LOL. That said ball ended up bursting from being repeatedly kicked in the sticker bushes... After our world wind backyard excursion, we go inside to have a snack and settle down a bit. Luckily she likes to wash her hands. I mean, she almost had that lizard! She really enjoys Dial W

Holiday Party Etiquette

With the holidays coming up on us so fast, it’s only right that we talk party etiquette. I can only speak about Black party etiquette, so that’s what I will discuss here. I'm sure some of these rule can be applied across different cultures/ethnicities. If you are invited to a party, gathering, dinner, or the like, there are some things that you just don’t do. If we invited you, we must like you at least a little bit. That can end quickly. Here are some general rules of Black house gatherings that expand beyond the holidays. You’re welcome. Don’t assume all Black events start late. Yes…a lot of them do, but you don’t want to be the late one. If I tell you it starts at 3, I’ve most likely accounted for the lateness of my family members. We move on without them. Don’t be tardy for the party. Don’t show up empty handed. Even if you are told not to worry about bringing anything, bring something. Even if it’s a bottle of sparkling cider. There will be massive side eye if you s
