Latkes and Eggs

photo(1)

Any reader of this blog knows that I’m obsessed with poached eggs. Jen and I have made so many iterations from Thomas Keller’s Roasted Asparagus with Poached Eggs and Prosciutto, to Thanksgiving Leftovers Eggs Benedict, to  Poached Eggs with Tomato and Salmon, to California Eggs Benedict. The potato latke, though, is an homage to the … Continue reading

Avocado and Egg Pizzette

IMG_3589

In a typical weekend breakfast scramble (pun sort of intended) to throw an egg on top of something delicious, I saw that I had all the ingredients for guacamole, but didn’t just want to eat eggs with a side of guac. Enter… avocado pizzette. It not only sounds fancy, but looks more presentable as well. … Continue reading

Maple-Glazed Salmon

IMG_2655

This recipe is a bit more appropriate for autumn and the changing of the seasons, but the subtle sweetness and spice of this glaze can be enjoyed at any time. I trolled the internet for many recipe ideas and spice combinations, but ultimately was mostly inspired by this one from CookingLight. In order to complement … Continue reading

Thanksgiving Eve in Singapore

Harold the Turkey

It’s been over a year since I had moved to Singapore, and I am glad to say that I am starting to feel a lot more settled here.  With that, I decided it was about time to introducing some new traditions to my expat life. Back in New York, Natalya and I had hosted Thanksgiving … Continue reading

Sautéed Okra with Garlic

Garlic Roasted Okra

Okra, also know as lady’s fingers, is quite popular in Mediterranean and Asian cuisines.  I have usually eaten them in stews or curries, but I think this vegetable is delicious enough to stand on its own.  I picked up a bunch at my local wet market and decided to do a simple and light saute. … Continue reading

Cold Soba with Thai Basil Pesto

Soba with Thai Basil Pesto

I adore cold soba, and every time I shop at Daiso (only the best Japanese $2 store in the world), I go a bit overboard with buying every brand of soba available.  Generally, I have been using the noodles to add some carb-y substance to my salads; this Soba Salad recipe my mom makes is … Continue reading

Thai Basil Roasted Chicken with Roasted Tomatoes

Thai Basil Roasted Chicken

Thai Basil Chicken is one of my favorite Thai dishes… however, this is not a recipe for that.  My Asian stir-fry and chili consumption had been a bit excessive of late and I was looking to cook something a bit blander and healthier.  I decided to go more towards the American-Italian grilled chicken pesto dishes … Continue reading

Lamb and Winter Vegetable Stew

Lamb Winter Vegetable Stew

Winter doesn’t really exist in Singapore; it’s ridiculously hot and humid all year round.  That whole equator proximity thing… The seasons we do experience here can be characterized as wet and dry, although the lines are blurred because it can rain even during non-monsoon season.  Which it does… often.  However, when it is monsoon season, … Continue reading

Burrata, Tomato and Basil Salad

Burrata, Tomato and Basil Salad

Mozzarella… just when you think it can’t get any better… oh, it does. Burrata, which means “buttered” in Italian, is a fresh Italian cheese made from mozzarella and cream.  The outer shell is mozzarella while the inside is a mixture of mozzarella and cream, which gives it a soft texture and a rich, buttery flavor.  … Continue reading
