Santorini Lobster – Attempt 1

Wednesday, April 15, 2009

Our first year anniversary is coming up (June 1st!), so perhaps that is conjuring themes of romance and memories of our honeymoon.

One of the best moments of our honeymoon had to be sitting at Sunset Taverna, dining by the bay (three feet from it) in Santorini, Greece, and enjoying the best lobster pasta dish either of us ever had.

Tangy Chinese Sauce

Friday, March 27, 2009

Jessica picked up some of the fluffy fish balls with pork centers, as well as cuttlefish balls, during a recent trip to Flushing. She had the idea to eat them with a spicy sauce. I took it upon myself to fulfill that desire. Well, even though there’s a good amount of spice in this sauce, it came out more tangy because the vinegar and sugar really balanced the heat. It is delicious.

Crawfish Gumbo

Sunday, March 22, 2009

Crawfish Gumbo was, by a good margin, the winner of the FoodMayhem Reader’s Choice: Crawfish Season, receiving 35.7% of the votes. There are many recipes already available online for Crawfish Gumbo, so my goal was to write a definitive guide. I’ve made gumbo quite a few times in the past, so I have a few tips to share. This post is more about the tips than anything else.

The number one tip I have for you is (Tip #1): Don’t attempt to make gumbo unless you’re planning to spend the whole day making it!

Simplified German Chocolate Cake

Simplified German Chocolate Cake

We had a little German themed dinner with pretzels, schnitzel, cabbage, and roasted potatoes so I wanted to follow through with a German dessert. I was feeling a bit lazy and decided to simplify German Chocolate Cake, a lot. I’m a little embarrassed by just how easy this was to make.

Grilled Turkish Spiced Meatballs

Thursday, January 29, 2009

We had some lamb leftover in the fridge and Jessica suggested experimenting. Since we also had some pita in the fridge, I went with a Turkish theme. Online I had seen a suggesting to interlace piece of bacon in lamb to get a similar effect to shwarma, seemed like a good enough idea. Well this worked out wonderfully!

Pickled Mustard Greens

Monday, December 1, 2008

Pickled Mustard Greens, or Swan Tsai, are a traditional Chinese favorite. They’re the sour chopped veggies you get in the Beef Noodle Soup (if you get an authentic one) or in Taiwanese dishes like Minced Pork Rice or Pork Chop Rice. Oh, I also love when they are sauteed with squid.

So I asked my mom how to make Swan Tsai, and was shocked to learn how easy it was:

1. Get a large clean jar (with lid). Clean the mustard greens very thoroughly by rinsing with water and rubbing the dirt off with your fingers.
2. Press a few leaves into the jar, sprinkle with table salt, press another couple of leaves, sprinkle with table salt. Repeat until you reach the top, making sure to pack in tightly. Fill the jar with water and top with about a tablespoon of white vinegar. This is just to prevent mold. Cover tightly.
3. Bring it over to the sink and turn it upside down 2 or 3 times.
4. Now just let it sit. In warm weather, it will only take a few days. In the winter, it will take up to 9 days. It all depends on your room temperature.

Curry Beef Skewers

Friday, October 24, 2008

I hesitate to call these Curry Beef Skewers because the curry isn’t so pronounced that you’ll think of this as a curry dish. However, the curry is what makes it extra special and your guests will be asking, what makes this beef so good?

Skewering does take a bit of work, but it’s an otherwise very simple recipe that takes very little skill. Bring these to a party and you’ll be very popular.

Soba with Spicy Tofu and Edamame

Monday, August 25, 2008

This recipe has been swimming around in my head for a while, editing back and forth, with nothing written down. I finally let it materialize and I’m very happy with it. Even Mr. Soba-hater, Lon, gave me the thumbs up. It’s really refreshing and perfect for summer so make sure to try it before fall comes around.

Asian Style Chimichurri Steak

Tuesday, April 22, 2008

I don’t usually buy London Broil but there was a super good sale going on so I couldn’t resist it for $1.99 per pound. So, I figured I would marinate it and then grill it for dinner tonight.

Rosemary Meatloaf

Monday, March 10, 2008

I decided to serve my Chinese family an all-American meal, Rosemary Meatloaf, Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes, and Sauteed Garlic Spinach. I have to pat myself on the back for this meatloaf recipe. It was so unbelievably flavorful and moist, my brother couldn’t believe it was mostly turkey.
