Basic Wontons (with Video)

Friday, May 17, 2013

Boy, have we come a long way since 2008. Some of you have been with us since we got married and we’re about to celebrate our Five-year Anniversary! Since then, we’ve definitely moved away from doing as many restaurant reviews (though worthy ones will still appear) and focused strongly on the recipes. It seemed that’s […]

Making Olive Chicken Thighs with Chef Tim Love

I could get used to this…

Our Little Pepper is One!

Monday, February 27, 2012

Cayenne (our daughter) turned one! We get a lot of questions (online and off) about how she eats and what we feed her. It’s time we did a blog post all about Caya’s food.
As soon as Caya could sit up, we had her in a high chair at the table with us for every meal.  […]

Pork, Shrimp, and Chive Dumplings (with video)

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

I’ve been trying to make foods that freeze well so that we have a stock pile of food for after the baby arrives. I’ve heard that the first few months are tough. No time for cleaning. No time for laundry. Certainly, no time to make elaborate meals. Knowing me and Lon, we won’t be satisfied […]

Chinese Noodle Making (video) with Chef Li Yu

Saturday, November 27, 2010

Our absolute favorite part of the Las Vegas Taste Tour was the noodle-making lesson with master Chef Li Yu, who started learning the art in his teens–about 27 years ago. He started with a demonstration where the ease of his movements show that for him, it is second nature by now. We, the bloggers, watch […]

“Live” Octopus at Sik Gaek (Woodside)

Saturday, June 19, 2010

They call this “live” octopus. Really they are actually dead… pulled from the tanks and freshly killed by being chopped up. They are still moving and the suckers hold onto the plate, the insides of your cheek, and the roof of your mouth. Conceptually, it’s just like eating sashimi, only the Koreans use a seasoned […]

Red Bean Zong Zi (with Video)

Tuesday, June 15, 2010

Duan Wu Jie is a Chinese holiday and this year it will be on June 16th. Traditionally, this is the time of year you make Zong Zi for your family and friends. (See our Pork Zong Zi from last year.) I’ll admit that it’s a lot of work and this is probably the most difficult […]

Kopi Luwak – aka Cat Poo Coffee (Give-Away)

Monday, April 26, 2010

Kopi Luwak was once thought of as an urban legend. In 2007, it was featured in The Bucket List, as one of the important things to do/drink before you die. Now, popularly known as the most expensive coffee in the world, it has certainly become a talking piece among coffee drinkers. Having seen prices on […]

Jeffrey’s Meat Market: Pig Butchery

Monday, February 8, 2010

A couple of weeks ago, I got an e-mail asking if I’d like to go to a butchering class. Really? Of course I would! And more importantly, I could pass this off as a Valentine’s Day present for Lon. Lon loves butchery!
It get’s better.
Jeffrey’s Meat Market 120 Essex Street, New York, NY […]

Fortune Cookies with Love

Wednesday, January 27, 2010

We’re on a tight schedule of recipe themes here, moving right on from Superbowl, to Valentine’s Day, and don’t forget Chinese New Year (or Lunar New Year) is the same days as V-day this year. I knew as soon as I took my last bite of Un-fried Buffalo Wing, I’d start thinking about hearts and […]
