Light and so Yummy Mongolian Beef Recipe

I got asked to share this recipe so much after I posted a video of me making it on my instagram stories and I am so excited to share this Mongolian Beef Recipe with you today!

This recipe is Refined-sugar free and can be made Gluten Free which is how I made it being allergic to Gluten!

I am known for making the same 5 dinners that I feel comfortable cooking and David recently told me that I may need to think of some new things to make (sorry David.) Cooking is not fun for me, it does not come easy and honestly, I would rather have someone cook for me (who wouldn't) but really, cooking takes so long, so after an already long day of work I don't feel like coming home and cooking... just being honest here!

This Mongolian Beef recipe is pretty easy and it is so so yummy! What I love most about this recipe is that it makes enough for lunch the next day! That is a huge score when it comes to my schedule because I do not have time in the morning to make lunches! For the beef it calls for Flank Steak but after looking at the price of Flank Steak we opted for a thin cut Sirloin Tip and it was great! (You already know we are on that budget!) I also used a microwave rice cooker for our rice and if you do not own one of these bad boys you need to get one! It cooks your rice in 13 minutes! Probably not the safest and healthiest but so fast and good!

So while making this Mongolian beef I totally almost threw out a pan from accidentally burning my second batch a little, but I beat the pan and cleaned it up with a little elbow grease, as my mom likes to say! You guys, I WISH I would have taken a picture of this pan. It was bad and I didn't even want to try to clean it but I am a big girl now and I have to clean my mess!

I do have to say, be careful while cooking your steak because you coat it in cornstarch, once you place it in the pan, the cornstarch gets stuck to the oil and then to the pan and it does not clean up nicely... maybe I did something so wrong but it tasted good in the end!

So I will quit my rambling, here is the recipe!

Make sure to share this recipe on Pinterest and if you make this Light and Yummy Mongolian Beef, please share it and TAG me on Instagram! I would love to see you try it!

Our Wedding || Vendors and Video

It has been so fun and flooding me with so many memories writing these wedding posts for you guys and I hope you are loving them just as much as I am! I wanted to dedicate this last post to all the amazing vendors I had but I really wanted to emphasize on my wedding planner who is not only a friend but AMAZING at what she does! Don't miss the much waited for wedding video at the end of the page too!

The Icehouse

We got so many questions about our venue and I did answer how we found it in my last wedding post but I will go into a little more detail here. Before I dated David and was just wondering if I even had feelings for him I saw this venue on Instagram from a blogger who got married there. She didn't mention what it was or where it was so I did some more digging and I found out that it was in Arizona which is coincidentally where David lived and where his family currently lives. I took it as a sign! When David and I were just barely dating we took a trip to visit his family and I wanted to see this venue just for fun... well we went and we both fell in love with it! It is honestly the venue of my dreams and the price was just right!

Jayme the amazing Venue Owner provided almost everything we needed. She has a whole basement full of vintage chairs, candle sticks, macrame, and so much more! We are very please with how everything turned out and we owe a huge thank you to Jayme! She worked so hard and made everything just the way we desired it!

Wedding Planning Do's and Don'ts

Should you be getting married soon, I hope you have a wonderful day, with a wedding that is all you ever wanted. May it be the start of an exciting and beautiful new chapter in your life. Of course, good wedding planning is essential. Not only will it ensure your big day goes by without a hitch, but planning will also relieve you of some of the more common wedding day stresses, such as the last-minute panic when you realize you haven't double-checked the catering arrangements.

How to Pick the Perfect Wedding Ring

Out of all the different choices you have to make in time for the big day, the wedding rings can feel like two of the most important components of all. Unlike the venue, catering, and décor, you’re going to be taking them home with you. Unlike the photos and the dress, you’re going to be looking at it for the rest of your life, no matter where you might be. Naturally, it’s important that you get it right, so how do you make sure you’re getting the ring that’s perfect not just for the day but for the rest of your life.
