Eggnog Jello Recipe

I know this may be coming to you late, but I had to squeeze this in, and share this recipe with you.  It is the second of my eggnog recipes for the holiday season.  I already shared with you the recipe for eggnog cheesecake bars, which is more for the cheesecake lover, rather than the eggnog […]

Comfort Food Cooking: Kopytka, Potato Dumplings

As I’ve mentioned several times already, I love collecting and reading cookbooks.  I have a pretty extensive cookbook collection, made up of mostly baking/dessert cookbooks, alongside a number of regular cookbooks.  While I love trying out recipes from my dessert cookbooks, I have yet to really venture into cooking the recipes from my other cookbooks.  Oh, I’ll […]

Egg Salad Memories and a Recipe

Like most college students, when I was in college, I ate out quite a bit.  I went to college in Berkeley, and there was no shortage of good, affordable food around.  Having lived at home all my life until that point, I had mostly eaten Chinese food and had never really ventured a whole lot out […]

Potato and Tomato Gratin Recipe

Given my admission that I am not much of a fan of vegetables – although I cook and eat it because “vegetables are good for you” – it may come as a surprise to you that one of my favorite dishes I cook is a vegetarian one.  It helps that I like all the ingredients to […]

Honey Chipotle Pork Ribs Recipe

Like a lot of people, I like to watch cooking shows – on the Food Network, PBS, and the Live Well Network.  One of my very favorite shows is Pati’s Mexican Table on PBS.  The host, Pati Jinich, was born and raised in Mexico, but moved to the US when she got married.  What I […]

Search for the Lost Chinese Pancake Recipe

It’s funny how family recipes are developed, passed on, and morph over time.  Over the last year and a half or so, I have been trying to get the recipe for a type of Chinese pancake from my mom.  She used to make these periodically when I was growing up.  Other than their flat round […]

Slow Cooker Brown Rice Recipe

I received a slow cooker as a gift from my family a number of years ago, and while I like the convenience of cooking meals in it, I haven’t found a whole lot of recipes that I would like to try, or, having tried them, would want to make them again.  But this brown rice […]

Low Maintenance Risotto

Growing up Chinese I was very ho-hum when it came to rice.  It was one of those staples that you only missed when it wasn’t there, but nothing to get excited about, given how we ate it everyday.  But rice mixed with other ingredients in dishes like fried rice or Mexican rice?  Delish!  I am […]

Appetizer Recipe: Stuffed Mushrooms with Pancetta, Shallots, and Sage

My favorite things to eat during the holiday party season, (other than sweets), are appetizers.  These tiny bites are perfect to get a taste of something delicious without overindulging.  Plus, you get to try a little bit of a wide variety of food.  Recently, my blog meetup group got together for our last meeting of […]

Asian Lettuce Wraps

One of my favorite Chinese dishes is minced meat and vegetables wrapped in lettuce leaves or cups. Some people make it with chicken.  My mom makes it with dried oysters.  I love it either way, but it is a labor intensive dish because of all the chopping and mincing of the ingredients, so when I […]
