postheadericon Kimchi Fried Rice

Couldn’t resist re-posting this beauty after noshing on Kimchee Fried Rice at Chibuscus Asian Cafe yesterday after my Hello Kitty Smart Car wouldn’t start.  Luckily, I was stranded near a mini-mall in Hollywood where this yummy Asian fusion cafe is located.  Their take on this dish inspired to me to adapt mine a bit with [...]

postheadericon Green Beans and Crispy Tofu with Garlic Sauce

This recipe is a hands down fave from my award-winning cookbook, “Everyday Thai Cooking.”    It’s a sublimely spicy dish that has an awesome texture from the tofu which has been tossed in a flour cornstarch mixture and then flash fried.  This gives it a crispy crunch which pairs sublimely with tender green beans in a [...]

postheadericon Japanese Style Stir-Fried Vegetables

The twins are graduating from kindergarten this week (Yikes! How did that happen?) and we’ve got recitals and all sorts of end of the year craziness happening so I was just thinking about something easy to make for dinner tonight. I don’t really have time to go to the grocery store and remembered that [...]

postheadericon Pepper Steak

Growing up in the Midwest, most of my friends considered their mom’s meatloaf or pot roast to be the ultimate comfort food after a crummy day at school or losing a track meet (something that never applied to me because I was more of the marching band clarinet type rather than athlete type.  I know, [...]

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 [...]
