postheadericon Clams in Black Bean Sauce

There’s something sultry about this dish.  It’s earthy, aromatic, salty, slippery and a bit a spicy.  Don’t confuse Chinese black beans with Mexican black beans.  Chinese black beans are also known as fermented or salted black beans and are made from fermented soy beans.  They are pungent and quite strong so it’s important to soak [...]

postheadericon Walnut Shrimp

Besides the Real Housewives of ______ (fill in the blank), Walnut Shrimp is my guilty pleasure.  If you’ve had this crispy, creamy, sweet and citrusy dish with prawns and crunchy honey glazed walnuts, you know exactly what I mean.  This is not an everyday recipe I make on busy weeknights.  It takes some extra steps [...]

postheadericon Mongolian Beef

I spent this morning pretending to be Princess Leia while my almost 5 year-old son Dylan wielded a pretend light saber (it was my Swiffer handle).  It was the only way I could get him to eat his bagel with cream cheese.  From Star Wars to Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Samurai, Dylan is obsessed with [...]

Want to add a little Southeast Asian flair to your pesto?  This recipe is filled with fresh basil, cilantro and mint with a touch saltiness from the fish sauce and heat from the srircha.   It’s bright and fresh and perfect for a summer night.  I love this recipe because just like Italian pesto, you [...]
