Zucchini Spaghetti Aglio e Olio

Zucchini Spaghetti Aglio e Olio

Continuing from yesterday’s “less carb-y” recipe theme, here is another recently discovered favorite: zucchini noodles! Zucchini noodles can be made a number of ways.  In the beginning, I would julienne the zucchini into long strips all by hand.  It took me a year to discover there were actual kitchen gadgets designed to make life easier and I haven’t … Continue reading

Smoked Salmon Carbonara

Post Easter, I decided it was time to try out some spring pastas (despite the fact Singapore is essentially season-less).  My favorite spring pasta recipe is Pasta with Smoked Salmon & Peas in a Dill Cream Sauce.  I decided to try something a little different and found a recipe for Smoked Salmon Carbonara by BBC … Continue reading

Cold 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 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

Sautéed Wild Mushrooms with Herbs

This simple side dish is often served in steak and Italian restaurants, and I order it without fail each time I find it on the menu. I decided to make these mushrooms to accompany some Sirloin Steaks, along with Crisped Roasted Mini Potatoes and Glazed Pearl Onions. In my effort to explore more local produce, … Continue reading

Food Comas: Top 10 in 2012

  Ugh I know we have been incredibly lazy with the blog. With my move abroad to Singapore, Natalya traveling all over the world (read all her amazing adventures on her much more timely updated travel blog), and my sister Pris having some exciting life changes… foodcomas has fallen to the wayside. I am very … Continue reading

Tomato Sauce

As I’ve often said, I’m more of a carnivore than a carbivore, but I still love a well made pasta. More accurately, I love hearty sauces on a small serving of pasta (somewhere Jen is laughing reading this because it’s true). So needing to use up some pasta and a can of San Marzano tomatoes, … Continue reading

Wild Mushroom and Asparagus Risotto

I’ve never made risotto before; Jen is usually spearheading carb consumption in this household with pasta and rice dishes. But I have a bunch of Arborio Rice in the cupboard and it needed to be used up. And since now is the prime time for woodsy mushrooms, I decided to combine some delicious chanterelles and … Continue reading

Baked Caprese

I can’t believe how long it took us to realize just how much of a goopy, cheesy goodness baked caprese would be. We’ve experimented with a couple of different traditional caprese with Insalata Caprese and Mini Caprese, so I decided to do something different. Another nice benefit of this recipe is that if your ingredients … Continue reading

Risotto with Prosciutto, Leeks, and Goat Cheese

It has been over a year since I first visited Beretta restaurant in San Francisco, and I still remember the incredible flavors of their risotto with prosciutto, leeks, and goat cheese.  This is still the best risotto I have tasted — primarily because I am obsessed with goat cheese and leeks.  The sweet sautéed leeks … Continue reading
