  1. excellent post, stumbled upon your website whilst searching for some thing totally different, it’s amazing how you can get caught up in reading when something truly captures your focus, i have a feeling this is going to be getting alot of media coverage over the next few months, ought to be interesting to watch unfold.

  2. Jessica

    I just first have to say that I love your blog. I’ve been visiting it since the beginning of this year and love the yummy dinner ideas! Thank you!

    I would have to say pretty much anything from PF Chang! Yummy! πŸ™‚

  3. I love anything and everything Chinese! PF Changs lettuce wraps and Panda Express Orange Chicken are my favorites…I think I am getting hungry! πŸ™‚

  4. Holly Olson

    i used to be a chinese food hater, but i was introduced to orange chicken from Panda Express and i am now converted. That has to be one of my favorites now.

  5. I love Fortune Cookie (just a local around the corner). There’s just too much to love. Sweet and Sour Pork, eggrolls, sesamee seed chicken, and orange chicken!

  6. I LOVE chinese food. Especially beef and broccoli! My favorite place is a hole-in-the-wall, family owned place in Seattle called Wans. Go there every time I visit my parents.

  7. candace

    Right now my favorite thing to eat is the Vietnamese Chicken Salad Rolls from Pei Wei. They are so delicious, light, and fresh! As far as true Chinese I usually like Beef and Tomatoes. πŸ™‚ Thanks for a great blog- love it!

  8. Leslie

    I love chinese food! PF Chang has these great lettuce wraps. My husband isn’t crazy about them though. That means more for me. Yum Yum

  9. Jessica Gray

    I love this local place around the corner from us called Mei Hon’s and their hot and sour soup is to die for! I also love their chicken lo mein or their pineapple chicken.

  10. Alison

    I am also a big fan of picky-palate! I don’t think there is anything better then a super yummy stir fry! My favorite restaurant would have to be Bamboo Club! I love the dishes and chop sticks!

  11. Jodi

    I LOVE Asian Star’s lettuce wraps (they are to die for) and their szechuan pork. Asian Star is my favorite Chinese restaurant!!

  12. Erin

    I love General Tao’s Chicken from Sampan in Salt Lake City. My husband & I would always get 2 different entrees to split, but he always ended up eating most of mine so now I make him order his own because I don’t want to share!

  13. For a quick grab, we love Panda Express… My husband always loves the orange chicken, and I have to have my pepper chicken and anything spicy. It is a place that even my picky eaters don’t fuss too much about.

  14. My all time favorite Chinese food is the Walnut Shrimp from the Asian Star in Salt Lake City Utah. PF Chang makes a version, but it doesn’t compare. Thanks for all your yummy recipes!!!!

  15. Laurie Brewer

    What a cute set!!!

    My favorite restaurant would be The Mandarin in Utah. My favorite thing to have or eat would be abc chicken.

    Thank you for the chance to win!

  16. Laurie

    I am not sure what my favorite Chinese Restaurant is. I tend to like the “little local” restaurants, although, I am a fan of orange chicken at Panda Express (Lucky Panda- as we call it at our house).

  17. Erin Woods

    I am with you! PF Changs Spicy Chicken is my all time fave and when I can’t get there, I hit Panda Express for some Orange Chicken. Mmmm!

  18. I love my husband’s orange chicken he makes from scratch. All I know is that he uses orange juice and it tastes heavenly. After dinner and for a treat I love to have a scoop or two of white rice sprinkled with sugar! Hummmm……..delightful!!
    These hot supplies would be great to have with his next batch. I hope I win!!!

  19. Betty

    I love my local chinese restaurant’s egg rolls….yum, they are so good! I also like PF Changs honey shrimp.

  20. I am a follower again. I love PF Changs Lettuce Wraps so good. Panda express is on of my faves to good and pretty cheap as well. I love love hunan chicken.

  21. Jaime

    I love hot ‘n’ sour soup! My brother and husband LOVE orange chicken, but for me, it’s all about the soup!

  22. I am a fan of PF Changs too — I like the ribs with the five spice powder and the chicken/lettuce roll ups. But what I really like is a cookbook called Beyond the Great Wall. Check it out.

  23. Carolyn

    I LOVE “The Mandarin” in Bountiful, Utah. Truly the BEST Chinese anywhere. At least it is to my family. I have eaten Chinese all over the United States and never had better. I LOVE all the dishes they make, but especially Walnut Shrimp. It is SO delicious. I have tried copying it and I have almost made it. I LOVE your web site. You are the BEST!

  24. Rebecca

    I love our local Chinese restaurant’s Tofu Delight, but my family always enjoys a good helping of General Tsaos Chicken.

    BTW, I’ve been a follower for about 6 months, but never left a message before. Thank you for all the great ideas, and recipes.

    A fellow member in the Alvin, Texas Ward.

  25. Nikki

    A spicy chicken dish from Pei Wei, but I can’t remember the name right now! I also really like their lettuce wraps.

  26. thebrunettebaker

    We had the pleasure of finding a new place in Atlanta called Doc Chey’s Noodle House (Peace/Love/Noodles). I had mongolian beef with udon…fresh & delicious. It’s a small place in the Emory University Hospital area if anyone gets the chance. Thanks for the giveaway! I’m trying your Spinach Artichoke dip in a few days!!

  27. Joy

    I love Pon Pon Chicken @ Asian Star, stir fry from Panda Express, and sesame chicken from Pei Wei… Chinese food is just yummy!

  28. Joy

    I love eating PonPon Chicken @ Asian Star and I go crazy for Panda Express stir fry and mushroom chicken… my mouth is watering just thinking about it.

  29. Katie

    I LOVE PF Changs! Crispy Honey Chicken or Shrimp. I just tried the Wanchai Ferry Orange Chicken a couple days ago, I bought the one you cook yourself and it was AMAZING! I’ll try the frozen one too! Sounds yummy!

  30. Becky

    So fun! I love PF Chang’s, but we have this place here, Madarine, that is to die for. I love General Tsao’s most places, and lettuce wraps are a must!

  31. Cara

    I love PF Chang’s crispy honey chicken and their lettuce wraps. I also love fried rice and vegetable lo mein from a local restaurant.

  32. Katie K

    oh, I love the hot and sour soup from the hole in the wall place by our house!!! Love the giveaway, I hope I win!!!And I’m totally making your tune aon ciabatta tomorrow,thanks!!!

  33. Angela Allen

    I love PF Chang’s Dan Dan Noodles. They are super spicy but delicious. I also love a local place called Fungs they have a really yummy fuji beef entree. Now I am hungry for chinese food!

  34. Very cute giveaway! I used to love the Orange Chicken from a Chicago restaurant called China Lite, but they recently went out of business πŸ™ Love the Orange Chicken from Panda Express though!

  35. Recently I visited Fortune Wheel on Hempstead Turnpike in Levittown (right next to BJ’s) and I was surprised to see how many CHINESE people were guests at the restaurant. That must mean something!! I loved the atmosphere, the waiters (always smiling), the food and the warm towels afterwards. I like General Tsao’s chicken and always order it the first time to see how the restaurant rates and this was the best I have EVER eaten here in the States )I am from Holland and our Chinese restaurants serve completely different food πŸ˜‰

  36. Bekki

    My favorite used to be the grocery store Smith’s sesame chicken before they turned it into a chain Chinese food place. Now I guess it would have to be Fortune in Provo, UT because it’s cheap and good.

  37. Sweet ‘n’ sour chicken is something I grew up on and will always be a favorite for that reason, but General Tso’s chicken is a close second.

  38. Jayne

    I love anything PF Chang’s! I guess my current mood is for some crispy honey shrimp or delicious lettuce wraps.

  39. Kimmy

    Roseville Gourmet (Roseville California very closer to Sacramento) Walnut chicken with this white sauce is amazing or the egg plant with black bean sauce to die for.

  40. Billi

    A restaurant in the DC area is famous for its many celebrity fans, including several Presidents. It is called Peking Gourmet Inn and looks like nothing fancy on the outside. Yet, the food is amazing with excellent service. My favorite dish there is the Hunan Chicken. Yum!!

  41. Mandi

    I actually did like Chinese food that much until my husband took me to PF Changs, I told him that I would never eat any other Chinese food again, that isn’t necessarily true, but I sure love their Kung Pao Chicken and their Lettuce Wraps. I also love their egg drop soup, its the best out there.

  42. Stacy

    Panda Garden’s chicken lo mien or there is a local place that has some fabulous sweet and sour chicken and crab rangoons. YUM!!!

    Love your blog, one of my faves!

  43. I had a panic attack the past few days because my computer couldn’t connect me to your blog…I am very happy to be reunited! The tastiest Chinese I’ve had are the lettuce wraps at P.f. Changs. And, there’s a little hole in Orange that has the best Mongolian BBQ I’ve ever had! I hope I win!

  44. Debbie R.

    My fav – pork egg foo young. Yum!!! Don’t really have a favorite restaurant, usually just grab take out from one of the locals. Thanks so much for the cute giveaway!

  45. I have followed your blog for a long time now.
    I even made sure to watch the FN when you where on the Ultimate Recipe Challenge…you were robbed!

    Anyway I love our restaurant in town #1 Chinese Kitchen.
    Their Generals Tso’s chicken is divine!!!!! Divine I tell you.

    Great contest.
    Thanks for the chance to win.

  46. I love a restaurant called China Buffet in Columbus, OH. They have all you can eat crab legs and crab rangoon, which is really good.
    (I also follow your blog).

  47. Cecily

    I follow you on Google Reader, so I hope that counts. I’ll confess that I am a sucker for good Chinese food, but my favorite was part of a Christmas feast made by friends who used to spend Christmas with us every year: shrimp and straw mushrooms. Yumm. My favorite restaurant wasn’t a national chain, but the local Chinese restaurant down the street, China Lily.

  48. Sesame and empress chicken are my favorites from our local Chinese joint! My google reader still works just fine with for following your blog πŸ™‚

  49. I love the coconut curry at PFChangs that isn’t on their menu anymore but the restaurant in Mesa will make it if I ask. I also love the spicy sockeye salmon salad – I will call and get that to go sometimes for lunch. This is making me really hungry!

  50. Libby

    Hey Jenny-I so wish that we over there in Cali with you. Super jealous. When does Mason start school? My fave restaurant is PF Changs-Mongolian Beef, but my all time fave is in Denver. It’s called Little Ollie’s, and is located right in the heart of Cherry Creek. We went there a lot when we lived there. Mmmm, Mmmm, good! Everything was good there. Hey, when you get the chance, would you re-send me an invite to your blog? Thanks girlie. Tell Cullen hello and give the boys a big hug for us!!

  51. My favorite chinese food place is a local called Chen’s Chinese food. It is awesome prices and so much yummy food! My favorite would have to be the Pineapple Chicken. YUM!

    Or even Panda Express Kung Pao Beef is really good.

  52. Looks like PF Changs is the overall favorite of most people, me included. I always favor the Mongolian Beef. I don’t think it gets much better than that.

    I stumbled across your blog (can’t remember the path I took) probably about a month ago, maybe a little longer. Really like that you use simple ingrediets. I am currently living in Mexico (in 3 weeks I am moving back to the States) and it is really hard to find many common ingredients. So, finding recipes in which I can find all the ingredients has been a blessing.

    Love the blog. Love the chance to win. Hope you have a great weekend.

  53. Cute prize. Thanks for the giveaway. Gosh, just one dish…. ummm…. ummmm…. that might have to be the honey chicken at PF Changs. Hmmm… might have to make the husband take me there for lunch now! Gee, thanks a lot for putting that into my head. And thanks a lot for the giveaway. It’s fun of you!

  54. My favorite chinese dish is a toss up between Peking chicken from a chain restaurant in MN called Leann Chin’s, and egg rolls from Jin’s Chow Mein, a small take out only shop in the town in MN I grew up in. I’ve been living in Chicagoland for almost 10 years, you’d think by now I’d have found a chinese place I like a little closer to home. Guess I haven’t been looking that hard!

  55. I LOVE PF Changs lettuce thai wraps and of course a 3 entree combo at Panda Express… all three entrees being ORANGE CHICKEN (of course!)
    The bowls and placemats are super cute! Best of luck to everyone πŸ™‚

  56. Robin Schick

    I love Chinese Gourmet. They have a buffet, so I get to try a little of everything. And I love to try new things.

  57. Well I was a follower – and now I’m a follower again!

    My daughter and I LOVE LOVE LOVE Chinese food – so when dinner is just us we do Chinese or Japanese.

    At our local Chinese restaurant we do Shrimp with Broccoli or their “Happy Family”. Sometimes we just do appetizers (they love us there) egg rolls, shrimp toast, pot stickers, and bacon wrapped scallops.

  58. Kelli

    Sadly since moving to Michigan over 2 years ago for Grad School I have not been able to find a good chinese restaurant here, by my favorites from home are egg drop soup and general tzo chicken from Peking China Restaurant.

    I have discovered in Michigan, though, my love for sushi– Sushiya is an amazing restaurant!! Does that count too?!

  59. Melissa Hodgen

    Homemade, store bought, eating out, I love it all! But, there is something about a good egg roll that makes me melt.

  60. Kelly

    I LOVE your recipes! I Love pei wei’s “spicy honey seared chicken”. And of course the Chicken lettuce wraps are amazing there. I also love the thai coconut chicken @ pei wei’s. It has a spicy kick to it! * I would Love to Win*

  61. I absolutely LOVE your blog. I have a very picky eater of my own at home (my husband). I think I try one of your recipes at least 3x month! Thanks for the great posts. My favorite Chinese food comes from PF Chang’s. I don’t think I’ve ever had a dish there I didn’t really enjoy, but my favorite would be the Lettuce Wraps. Mmmmm πŸ™‚ Although I prefer to forgo the lettuce and eat the filling with steamed rice. YUMMY! πŸ™‚

  62. Jennifer

    There was a little whole in the wall chinese place in HB, CA called FU WING LO that we LOVED!!! The best chinese around. Now I settle for PF Changs and love their lettuce wraps! Thanks for a great website!

  63. I’m in love with PF Changs lettuce wraps and the Szechuan beef. YUM! But when I eat at the local hole in the wall places I always get almond chicken.

  64. Megan

    How adorable! I love the new website, too πŸ™‚

    I love anything from PF Chang’s. The fried rice from Panda Express is to die for as well!

  65. I love Chicken with Sweet Peanut from Jasmine House here in Long Island…and I love Sesame Chicken. The Wanchai Ferry product is okay – but we found that the bag that cost 8.99 barely had enough food for one person (I would have to buy 3 to feed my husband and grown son alone) and after spending that I could have gotten a whole take out order at the restaurant – one other note I found – when I made it – we had to eat it really fast or it got soggy very quickly.

  66. I absolutely love your blog and have never been disappointed in any of the recipes I’ve tried πŸ™‚

    As for my favorite Chinese food…I’ve always been somewhat partial to beef and broccoli! (I’m very much a creature of habit!). My current favorite Chinese restaurant is just a local buffet (here in Indianapolis) that has an extensive selection…by far the best I’ve EVER been to. One day, I do hope to finally try PF Changs!

    I’m so glad you posted about Wanchai Ferry, because I’ve seen their products in the store and always wondered how they were!

  67. Kenyon

    Love Pei Wei…spicy chicken salad and mongolian chicken πŸ™‚ YUMMY!

    Thanks for sharing your talent with so many, I love Picky Palate!!!!

  68. My favorite Chinese dish is one that I found in a Chinese Stir Fry cookbook years ago. Creamy Coconut Chicken Soup. I’ve modified the recipe a bit over the years to make it just perfect. Makes me crave it just writing about it!
    I’m a big time fan of your blog and haven’t had one bad experience with anything I’ve tried from it. Thanks!
    Oh, and I like PF Changs a lot, just like everyone else. πŸ™‚

  69. Oooooooooooh, so so cute! I would be so excited to win, especially since I currently don’t own any real dishware haha… (getting married soon).

    Um… let’s see: Orange Chicken is always a winner at Panda, and I love the rice and noodle bowls at Pei Wei. Recently though my fiance took me to this cute family owned Chinese restaurant in Odenton, MD called Hunan L’Rose. I ordered the cashew chicken and crab wontons… mmMmm good!

  70. Becca

    I am my happiest with Dragon Wok’s Orange Chicken, take out style! Pei Wei is delicious too…thank goodness for lettuce wraps!

  71. stacy whisler

    hi there! i love your blog! i made the father’s day menu and my husband loved it!

    my favorite restaurant is The Chinese Restaurant in the heart of san francisco’s chinatown….the sweet and sour chicken is amazing!

    stacy whisler

  72. I’m following your blog!:-) Panda Expresses Orange Chicken has got to be my favorite. I craved Panda Express once or twice when I was pregnant. πŸ™‚

  73. Yum! I absolutely LOVE Chinese food. The best place (in my humble opinion of course) is a place called Desert Jade in Phoenix. They have the best Lemon Chicken and Lettuce wraps I have ever had. If you are looking for authentic Chinese food then this is definitely the place.

  74. I adore chinese food. Although I’ve discovered it’s not so good for you, doesn’t stop me from eating it though! πŸ™‚ PF Changs is as authentic as it gets out by me. I love their honey shrimp, crab ragoons are a must, and eggdrop soup.

    The set looks too cute! We love eating with chopsticks but for some reason I’ve never invested in buying sets we could reuse. This little set would be perfect. Thanks for all your yummy food ideas.

  75. My husband has Celiac Disease so we do a lot of rice and Chinese food in our family. My all time favorite Chinese restaraunt is Joy Luck, I love their Teryiaki Chicken. Fresh veggies and Grilled Chicken. Oh and The Cheesecake Factory has the most amazing Orange Chicken I have ever had, but I’m excited to try this one you recommended as well!

  76. Susanna

    I would have to say PF Changs as well. The lettuce wraps there are tasty. I also will go for the Orange Chicken at Panda any day as well.

  77. Stefani

    I love most anything from PF Changs. My very favorite is the Crispy Honey Chicken. We’ve tried some other Wanchai Ferry things, and have really like them. I can’t wait to try this one!

  78. Oh man…I love chinese food!! I also have to say that I love PF Changs. We always get the mongolian beef, and spicy honey shrimp, then we HAVE to get the banana spring rolls with coconut icecream for desert!!

    mmm, now I’m hungry!

  79. Ashley

    My husband & I absolutely love chinese food and because we are on a strict never go out budget we rarely get chinese unless I make it for dinner! Our favorite is definately Panda Express Orange chicken, but we love Autumn Moon Chinese Buffet by our home in Mesa Arizona! The chinese set is so cute! I just love following your blog!

  80. Debbie

    I love PF Changs Crispy Honey Shrimp and I often wish there was easy and good chinese I could make at home so I am excited to try this. Thanks for the giveaway!

  81. Lisa C.

    I love Panda Inn’s Moo Shu Chicken. Yummy!! I don’t live near them anymore, so my second vote would be Pei Wei’s Teryaki Chicken Bowl. Keeping my fingers crossed I’m a winner.

  82. I’m not a big Chinese food person, but I love Wanchai Ferry meals. I haven’t tried their frozen ones yet though.

    My FI loves any Chinese restaurant that serves General Tso’s chicken.

  83. Hey Jenny,
    I’d say my favorite is PF Chang’s Lettuce Wraps. Probably not authentic, but yummy nonetheless! Have a great weekend!

  84. Yup, I’m a follower.
    I love steamed brown rice and veggies with Hunan spicy Brown sauce and tofu! My favorite Chinese Restaurant is named Peking Restaurant!!
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  85. Chrissy Lockhart

    I love Ruby Palace here in Huntington Beach, CA. We go with our extended family so we can eat family style and try a little of many things. Yum!

  86. Tricia Folsom

    Since we just moved 3 weeks ago we have not found a chinese restaurant yet. But in IA I loved the sweet and sour chicken from Yang Chow Wok. But I also love the honey chicken from PF Changs!

  87. My favorite restaurant is called Ho Wah located in Beachwood, Ohio.

    My favorite food is the chicken egg foo young over steamed rice. But instead of the brown gravy that is usual with egg foo young I get an order of the sweet and sour sauce that is served with egg rolls.

    I also like P.F. Changs

  88. Michelle

    I love a local restaurant where I live called China Garden. I love to start with their Egg drop soup, then have their Beef with Brocoli and Mushrooms, and to finish Fried Donuts.

  89. Ilove the PF Changs Szuchean from the sea-the scallops are excellent!! I also like the Bejing beef from Panda Express. Spicy is for me!!! Love your website!!!

  90. Laura

    I love ordering Chinese in, and it’s usually something simple, like Garlic Shrimp or Sweet n Sour Chicken, BUT my absolute favorite Chinese food is from Ollie’s in NYC. They’re shrimp spring rolls in a seaweed wrapper are so amazing. And even though I haven’t been to Ollie’s in years, whenever I’m really hungry and sitting at work with like an hour until lunch, I dream about their vegetable dumplings! So delicious!!

  91. Wow…those bowls and placemats are super cute! I don’t really know what my favorite restaurant is but I do love a good stir fry. Guess my favorite on a splurge would be sesame chicken!
