postheadericon Soy Ginger Chicken Wings

My husband Matthew is a chicken wing fanatic so I always whip up a batch of these easy, delicious and flavorful wings if he’s had a long day.  I bet you have all (or almost all) of the ingredients for this recipe in your pantry right now. These wings are marinated in soy sauce, honey, [...]

postheadericon General Tso’s Chicken

Want to get your family to stand at attention?  Why not whip up this restaurant favorite tonight?  Although General Tso’s Chicken takes a couple of more steps than a simple stir-fry the results are worth it.  This sweet and slightly spicy dish is so delicious you’ll friends and family will be clamoring for seconds and [...]

postheadericon Singapore Curry Noodles

We all know that French Fries weren’t invented in France and similarly Singapore Curry Noodles weren’t invented in Singapore (or so I’ve been told)!  These earthy noodles are a Cantonese creation found all over Hong Kong in night market stalls and it’s a mystery as to how this dish was given its name.   Whatever the [...]

There’s Meatless Mondays and Throwback Thursday, why not try Stir-Fry Sundays on for size?  That’s right, folks!   I’m setting out to put Stir-fries on everyone’s table on Sunday nights.  Why?

postheadericon Hot & Sour Soup

As much I love pumpkin, I need an occasional break from the pumpkin options everywhere right now  from  pumpkin lattes at Starbucks to the pumpkin pancake mix from Trader Joe’s I just made for my kids over the weekend.   To me, there’s nothing quite like a bowl of steaming Hot & Sour Soup when autumn [...]

postheadericon Crab Puffs

My friend Scott calls these “little pillows of cream cheese crab heaven.”  For a skinny guy, he can wolf down about a dozen of these before he even finishes his glass of Cabernet.  No one is quite sure of the origin of this Polynesian favorite, also known as Crab Rangoon (what is a Rangoon, anyway?) [...]

postheadericon Shu Mei with Hello Kitty

I love Hello Kitty so much I wanted to share my love for her in my most recent You Tube Video.  Dim Sum literally translates as “to touch the heart” so it seemed only natural to showcase my love of Hello Kitty while making shu mei, a staple at dim sum restaurants.   Check out [...]
