Cauliflower and Hazelnut Stuffing

Continuing the test kitchen gluten-free stuffing adventures outlined in my previous post Gluten-Free Chicken Sausage and Apple Stuffing… In my search for the ultimate gluten-free Thanksgiving stuffing recipes, I ventured into the breadless varieties.  There are plenty of bread substitutes to use, and I think the key is to find something that is very mild … Continue reading

Gluten-Free Chicken Sausage and Apple Stuffing

Since moving to Hong Kong last month, I have been attempting to improve my nutrition by focusing on healthy cooking and exercising regularly (the latter is a bit harder to maintain).  Compared to my previous abodes in California and New York, the Hong Kong organic health food scene seems to be still in fledging stages; however, it … Continue reading

Lamb and 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

Chicken Noodle Soup

Since I moved to Singapore, one of the most difficult things to adapt to here has been the weather.  Going from the intense humidity outside and the full blast air conditioning inside has revealed my immune system is really not up to par, and sadly I have gotten sick almost on a monthly basis.  During … Continue reading

Chicken Stock

I know this post should have exited by now, because stock is almost a presumed ingredient in everyone’s cooking arsenal. But Jen and I have been a bit lazy with our own stock making, and since I had just made a Whole Roasted Chicken earlier in the week, the leftover bones were a perfect occasion … Continue reading

Crunchy Deviled Eggs

For our Thanksgiving Eve dinner, Natalya and I decided to try a new deviled eggs recipe.  I saw a recipe for A Little Bit of Devilish Eggs and decided to substitute celery for chives to add a nice crunch (plus I had some leftover celery from the Whole Roasted Chicken).  These deviled eggs have a … Continue reading

Apple Cider Slaw

I have never been a fan of coleslaw because all I can really taste is the mayonnaise.  However, after trying the apple cider slaw with Barmarché‘s crispy bass taquitos in soft-shelled flour tortillas with guacamole and pico de gallo… I realized not all slaws were so bad.  Slaws in general are basically salads composed of … Continue reading

Chinese Chicken Salad

I subscribe to Wine Spectactor’s free email list that occasionally sends out recipes.  I haven’t had too much luck with these recipes though as they all tend to be French and quite fancy.   Basically, that translates to 10+ ingredients and 10+ steps and I’m too lazy to try most of them.  The ones I have … Continue reading

Egg Salad BLT

Everyone has their own hangover cure — and usually, eggs are the popular choice.  Apparently, there is a scientific reason behind this: egg yolks contain a large amount of cysteine, which breaks down acetaldehyde, one of the culprits behind a hangover.  But enough of a nerdy babble talk, eggs are awesome.  However, fried eggs tend … Continue reading

Whole Roasted Chicken

Natalya and I are huge fans of buying whole rotisserie chickens from the grocery store, especially when we are feeling too lazy to cook.  Sometimes we will incorporate the rotisserie chicken as part of a full meal, but more often we end up just picking at it as a quick snack.  One day, we were … Continue reading
