KUNG PAO CHICKEN RECIPE

VAV!/September 19, 2014/Contributed by Bobby The Blog Chef Here's the recipe you all might have been waiting for – the legendary Kung Pao Chicken! I have wanted to make this for the longest time but have just finally got around to doing so now. Kung Pao chicken first originated in central-western China and has become very popular in the United States. This is the westernized version of kung pao chicken consisting of wok fried chicken pieces, roasted peanuts, scallions and a spicy sauce. For those of you that have been waiting for a Chinese chicken recipe that doesn't use a deep fryer – this is it. Even though you can deep fry the chicken pieces this time we are frying the chicken in the wok. Some versions of Kung Pao chicken use vegetables such as zucchini or red bell peppers. This recipe doesn't call for those but you can add them if you wish. Serve on top of white rice.

(Official White House Photo by Pete Souza) VAV!/September 11, 2014/Washington "ISIL is not "Islamic." No religion condones the killing of innocents. And the vast majority of ISIL's victims have been Muslim. And ISIL is certainly not a state. It was formerly al Qaeda's affiliate in Iraq, and has taken advantage of sectarian strife and Syria's civil war to gain territory on both sides of the Iraq-Syrian border. It is recognized by no government, nor by the people it subjugates. ISIL is a terrorist organization, pure and simple. And it has no vision other than the slaughter of all who stand in its way." - President Obama "ISIL is a terrorist organization, pure and simple." In an address from the State Floor of the White House on September 10, 2014, President Obama spoke to the nation about ISIL (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) -- and a comprehensive strategy to degrade and ultimately destroy the terrorist group.  Ushering in a new military front in the Middle East, President Obama authorized U.S. airstrikes inside Syria, along with expanded strikes in Iraq.

 

Sardi's Restaurant - Toast Of Broadway

Pictured above: Window into Sardi's BarReflections of Shubert Theater/Photographer: Tom Dussault/February 24, 2011/CC/Flickr VAV!/September 20, 2014 The Broadway theatre would never have been the same without Sardi's: Plays have been written and entirely financed at Sardi's and hit shows have celebrated their opening at Sardi's.  Way back in May 1921, Vincent and Eugenia Sardi founded The Little Restaurant, a basement restaurant housed in a brownstone at 246 West 44th Street. In 1926, when the building was set for demolition, the Sardi's relocated to another location just down the block. The new restaurant, Sardi's, opened March 5, 1927. It was located at 234 West 44th Street (between Broadway and Eighth Avenue) New York City in the heart of the theatrical district.
