Warm Thai Peanut Noodles (Soooo delish!)

Okay, so I am a bit late on getting this blog typed and uploaded. It has been a hectic week...Busy going through my file cabinet and trying to reorganize it all. Over the past five years I have accumulated so many papers with school, work, bills...etc. etc. that it began to overflow a cascading waterfall...out into other drawers and counters. Not so bueno. So I made a point to rid myself of paper clutter! While my life is getting clutter-free, I've neglected my new blogs...Oooopsies. haha. 

Anyway, per the request of one awesome YouTuber, whose username is ItsJudyTime, (you know her?! great!) I uploaded a cooking tutorial video to my new All Things Emmy channel. (And just for the 411, I didn't delete my emalyce89 account, nor am I not going to be uploading videos anymore, but rather I am rearranging my content. My main account got a little cluttered with random videos. I wanted to organize my channels by topic to help you guys, my amazing viewers, to decide what you're more interested in and stick to for anything beauty and fashion related, please check out my main website, or YouTube channel:; and for my Christian blog, check out
So, without further ado, here's the infamous deliciousness recipe! (and scroll down to the very bottom for my cooking tutorial video!)

Ingredients (feeds 2 people...depending on appetite!)
*2 button mushrooms, sliced (or fewer depending on your preference)
 1/4-1/2 cup of grated carrots (I used baby carrots; please use what you like)
1 shallot (or about 1/8 cup of diced red onion)

Peanut Sauce:
 1/4 cup chunky peanut butter
2 tsp. soy sauce
1/2 tsp (or less) ground ginger
*1/2 tsp. (or more) crushed red pepper (SPICY!)
1-2 TBS. pureed herb blend (Thai flavor) (I used Gourmet Garden)

1 TBS. peanut, olive, or coconut oil
2 oz. angel hair pasta



1. Dice mushrooms and set aside.
2. Grate carrots if not previously done; mix with mushrooms.
3. Dice up shallot or red onion; mix in with vegetables.
4. In separate bowl, combine chunky peanut butter, soy sauce, ginger, red peppers, and Thai pureed herb blend. Mix it well and set aside.
5. In medium saucepan, fill with water about 1/2 way. Add in oil. Set to boil.
6. Once water is boiling, place the noodles in to cook...takes about 3-5 minutes. 
7. Drain all but about 2 TBS of the hot water.
8. Toss vegetables in with noodles, adding the peanut sauce. Add the hot water to melt the peanut sauce over the noodles. Continue tossing until well-mixed.
9. Let sit for about 3-5 minutes so the peanut butter sauce has a chance to set. The flavors will saturate the noodles.
10. Enjoy!
