Somen Salad… sort of

It’s spring, and therefore, time again for salads. I once had a salad like this at a potluck– I took the recipe from Just Jenn, but I made several changes to it, some on purpose, and some because I didn’t have the right ingredients and had to substitute. I made it like a mashup between [...]

Snickerdoodles

Being the cookie junkie that I am, I can’t believe that this is the first post about cookies that I’ve written for this blog. Well, better late than never. I am asked to make this cookie every year around the holidays. This is Lipby’s favorite. I love anything with cinnamon in it, so it’s one [...]

Orange-Almond Polenta Cake

This is a delightfully light and fluffy cake with the pleasant taste of oranges and a hint of almonds. It’s also super-easy to make. I am slightly disappointed that it doesn’t have the consistency of baked polenta– it has more of a cornbread consistency, but lighter. I’m sure I could tweak the recipe to make [...]

I’ve been on a Korean cuisine kick lately. I think it has a lot to do with living near an HMart– we’ve been buying lots of ingredients to make Korean recipes, with delicious success. It also helps that the salespeople often offer free samples while shopping so that you can try before you buy. I [...]

This recipe was passed along to me by my sweetie Dragonia.  It’s definitely not the sort of thing Jack and I usually eat around the House of Cards, but I was intrigued by the use of nutmeg in conjunction with bruschetta-like ingredients, and it made for a nice change-up.  Depending on your own culinary history, [...]

Oyako Don

Lipby has asked me to make more Japanese dishes for him, and I’m happy to oblige. Donburi is a meal over rice in a bowl. Oyako is a compound word– oya means parent, ko means child. In this case, it refers to the two main ingredients: chicken and egg. The recipe comes together fairly quickly, [...]

Kumquat Nut Bread

Lipby and I went to Florida this past winter to visit his parents. We arrived, coincidentally enough, during the Kumquat Festival, and we just had to go. We all took a shuttle bus into Dade City, and were treated to kumquats, whole and in various preparations. Lipz and I bought a huge box of meiwa [...]

Niçoise Salad

It’s been a recent tradition of mine to usher in the spring with a colorful salad. The niçoise salad is one of my favorites (a poetic recipe can be found here), so when I saw a version on Bellini Valli’s site, more than burnt toast, I knew I had to make it. Some changes I [...]

Coconut Milk Flan

I had some coconut milk on hand. Lipby loves custard desserts, and I love coconut milk, so this was perfect to make. The hardest part is caramelizing the sugar. Make sure to clean your saucepan while it’s still warm, or else heat it up so that the sugar melts and can be washed out easily. [...]

Maple Pecan Pie

It’s no secret: I like pie. So when my friend Tom suggested creating a new holiday, International Pie for Breakfast Day, I enthusiastically told him I’d be willing to participate. I asked Lipby what his favorite pie is, and he said pecan. I found a lovely recipe on Epicurious for a Maple Pecan Pie. The [...]
