postheadericon Cherry Chipotle 5-Spice Beef Skewers

My friend and fellow food blogger Erika Kerekes recently launched a line of amazing tangy gourmet sauces called Not Ketchup.  They’re made with fruit – like cherries, blueberries and dates – instead of tomatoes as well savory spices and cider vinegar to give it a tart kick.  One taste and I was hooked.  I’ve tried [...]

As we “fall” back this weekend, I thought I’d post something hearty, soul-satisfying and sear-iously delicious.  A simple combo of ginger, garlic, soy sauce, honey, sesame oil and rice vinegar is whisked together for the marinade.   You can find premium sesame oil in the gourmet section at Cost Plus World Market.  It’s so easy [...]

I don’t know about you but I’m already overwhelmed by the soccer practice and T-ball practice schedules that we just received.  Not to mention the homework packets about to come home with the twins in their backpacks.  I am so looking forward to this Labor Day weekend to relax and chill out a bit before [...]

To know me is to Banh Mi.  If you haven’t had this incredible Vietnamese sandwich, you must walk, no run, to your nearest Vietnamese bakery or to the grocery store to make it.  This is a classic Vietnamese sandwich that is completely addicting.  It’s loaded with fresh marinated veggies, succulent and flavorful chicken, aromatic herbs [...]

Even though summer has come to a close, it’s still warm enough to throw some steaks on the grill for most of you.  I love this Thai Steak Salad recipe because it turns an everyday grilled steak into an exciting symphony of salty, hot, sweet and sour flavors from the lemongrass, lime and orange juices, [...]

postheadericon Grilled Vietnamese Pork

Glazed in a sweet, sticky and spicy marinade, this grilled Vietnamese pork recipe won raves  during the girls lunch I threw the other day.  I just grilled the pieces or pork shoulder on my non-stick stove top grill pan so there was more time to chat with my friends instead of running out to the [...]

postheadericon Korean Beef Skewers

Packed with sweet, spicy and savory flavors, this Korean beef skewer recipe will turn an everyday BBQ into the talk of the neighborhood.  The trick to creating melt-in-your-mouth goodness is tenderizing the meat in kiwi puree which is a tip my Korean friend Diana’s mother taught me.  You can substitute the kiwi puree with pineapple [...]

postheadericon Teriyaki Chicken Recipe

In Japanese, “Teri” means luster and “Yaki” means grilled.  Whatever the language, this dish is sweet, savory and succulent with fall off the bone tenderness.  This is a recipe everyone in the family loves and it’s perfect for a quick weeknight BBQ.   Chicken thighs are great for grilling because they’re moist, flavorful and cook quickly.  [...]
