Kung Hei Fat Choy!

Happy Chinese New Year everyone!  Happy Year of the Dragon — may it be prosperous for all! Just wanted to compile all my Chinese recipes I’ve posted so far (updating my 2011 Rabbit post actually) … and I realize *still* I have been seriously slacking in that department.  I need to get back in touch … Continue reading

Szechuan Braised Rabbit with Tofu and Peanuts

For Chinese New Year, I wanted to prepare a rabbit dish to ring in the Year of the Rabbit.  I have never cooked rabbit before, but rabbit meat can typically be prepared in the same manner as chicken.  The tastes are actually fairly similar with rabbit being slightly leaner.  I first started enjoying rabbit at … Continue reading

Gourmet Game Day

I am not much of a sports fan… I mean I enjoy playing sports but I am a fairly apathetic spectator.  Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that the only sports I did were pretty boring to watch, such as crew or swimming…  However, I am clearly a fan of food, so … Continue reading

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

After a friend brought Brussels sprouts with bacon to our Thanksgiving Eve dinner, I couldn’t help but want to make my own as soon as possible!  Roasting Brussels sprouts, or any vegetable for that matter (such as asparagus), is quite simple — all you need is a little bit of olive oil, salt, and pepper.  There … Continue reading

Candied Yams

Yum! Candied sweets! Also called candied yams, this delicious dish makes veggies so fun to eat. I got this recipe from my cousin who makes this for her family for the holidays. The citrus flavor from the orange juice is a great addition. I also made a few tiny changes the second time I made … Continue reading

Our Thanksgiving Eve Dinner!

I hope everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving and ate delicious food to your stomach’s content! For Natalya and me, it’s a bit too far to fly home to California for Thanksgiving (plus we work on Friday) so for the past few years, we have just stayed in New York.  We decided to host a Thanksgiving … Continue reading

Baked Crab Dip

My mom has made this crab dip for years for family gatherings and I admit I am absolutely obsessed with it.  It’s so simple and easy and absolutely delicious.  I mean, when the majority of the dish is cream cheese, how can it not be?  Haha ok hopefully haven’t totally put you off this dish … Continue reading

Salmon with Caramelized Leeks and Carrots

The simplest fish dish ever!  Quick, easy, elegant and delicious — great attributes for any meal.  We had some leftover leeks from making the Fish Cooked in Paper recipe and so I decided to try another fish recipe using leeks that I found via AllRecipes.com.  I love caramelizing vegetables — it kicks your basic sautéing … Continue reading

Red Velvet Cake Balls

If you love red velvet cake, you’ve probably tried or at least heard of these amazing little desserts called cake balls. Essentially they are cake mixed with frosting, which are then rolled into 1-inch balls and dipped in chocolate candy. I first discovered these yummy treats at work, where my co-worker makes delicious red velvet … Continue reading
