Cheddar Crust Apple Pie

Wednesday, December 3, 2008

I’ve seen a couple of recipes for apple pie with cheddar cheese in the crust, intending to try it out at some point. I finally got around to it and found this recipe that used a 9X13 oval baking dish. I happen to have one and have never seen a recipe using it. Boy, was I ecstatic!

After reading the recipe more carefully, I realized a couple of problems. I didn’t want the raisins in this recipe (no general prejudice against them) and I wanted a double crust pie, not just a top crust. Luckily, it seemed this recipe made more then enough dough for a double crust, and you’ll still have left-over. (I’ll try to do something with this another day.) Lastly, I like tall pies. (Have you heard of Mile High Apple Pie?) So, I increased the apple filling.

Thanksgiving 2008 Series: Cranberry Cabbage Slaw

Monday, November 17, 2008

Some people love Cole Slaw and some people hate it. I used to hate it as a kid because the ones I had tried were overly dressed and soggy, like cabbage sitting in mayo soup. I didn’t have a good one till some time during college but now I’m a fan, well sometimes. If your family like slaws, this one has a Thanksgiving touch to them, dried cranberries. It’s easy to make. You can (well, have to) make ahead, and it’s an easy dish to pack and bring to someone else’s home. Enjoy!

Hummus, Quinoa Tabbouleh, and Eggplant Caperberry Salad

Monday, September 1, 2008

As I mentioned in my previous post, I served Moroccan Spiced Chops with Pluot Sauce to Angie and Scott. You don’t think that’s all I served, do you? Of course not! Meals at our place are always feasts! With that we had Tzatziki (I’ve posted this recipe before), Hummus, Quinoa Tabbouleh, Eggplant Caperberry Salad, and fresh Pita. Here are the recipes to make your feast!

I can’t believe I’ve never posted a hummus recipe. If you have a food processor, it is so easy to make, you’ll never pay for store bought versions again. Take this recipe as a guideline, adjusting to your taste. My tahini (which we brought home from Greece) is super dark so here I use 1 tablespoon but you might need more. Keep in mind that the quality of your ingredients will make a big difference here, especially what olive oil you use.

Asian Pear Beet Salad (with or without Feta)

Saturday, July 12, 2008

My friend Sheryl loves beets so I prepared some last time she came over. In a daring mood, I tried a pairing I had never seen or heard of before, beets with Asian pear. Hooray, it was a fabulous discovery and will forever be in my repertoire. I worked on a recipe and came up with a unique, refreshing, and eye-catching salad.

Spicy Baba Ganouj

Tuesday, July 1, 2008

I decided to make Baba Ganouj today and a light bulb went off – I should add harissa (that I bought at SOS Chefs) to it. It just made sense in my head so I was hoping the result would be as good. For me, the harissa was a hit! It brought out a smokiness and added a tang, and of course some heat. Unfortunately, Lon didn’t like it. We do occasionally differ on taste. Oh well.

Strawberry Whipped Cream Cake

Monday, May 5, 2008

It’s Cinco De Mayo and my dad’s birthday, occasion enough to make a cake. My parents are like most Chinese parents, not fans of most American desserts. They find them too sweet, too dense, and too heavy. I tried to make a cake that was more suitable for my dad’s taste buds, a simple Strawberry Whipped Cream Cake. It’s deceivingly light because the cake is actually a high fat cake but everyone was fooled, and loved it.

Colorful Quinoa Salad and Skewers

Wednesday, April 30, 2008

Quinoa is a wonderful ingredient, that can be used as a substitute for rice or cous cous in most recipes. It is high in protein and has many health benefits. The best part is that it tastes good. I love it because it’s chewy and the mild flavor takes on any sauce or dressing well. In the Spring, I love colorful salads and Quinoa makes a lovely one.

Roasted Eggplant and Red Pepper Salad

Wednesday, April 9, 2008

I’m trying really hard to eat lighter and this very low fat salad was great. It doesn’t taste like it’s missing the fat at all. Enjoy!

A Versatile Sauce for Fish

Sunday, August 26, 2007

We went to Chatham Square Restaurant Chatham Square Restaurantfor Dim Sum today. It was average for Chinatown Dim Sum, which has declined in the last few years. Dim Sum in Flushing is better. The good thing about any meal in Chinatown is that you get to do some great shopping afterwards. We picked up a 1 1/2 pound swordfish steak, along with lots of other goodies.

We grilled the swordfish steak (6 min on one side, 3-4 min on the other, here is a close-up) and I made a sauce that really impressed Lon. If you don’t like Swordfish, the sauce could easily be served on salmon, a fried fish (like Skate, Tilapia, Catfish, any…), or even Sea Scallops. It’s easy too! Just mix all of these ingredients together and spoon on top of fish.

This makes enough for 4 servings:

  • 1/2 lemon, zest and juice
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons capers
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon whole grain mustard
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
