Fried Rice With Pork (Or Chicken)

Fried rice with pork called Khao Pat Moo in the Thai language, or Khao Pat Gai for Chicken fried rice. In a most annoying stereotype almost every Thai restaurant will assume you, being a foreigner, will only eat Fried Rice and will tell you your order is Khao Pat xxx. Very annoying when you want […]

Australian “Hawaiian” Chicken Wraps

Hawaiian chicken wraps – why? Well it seems every food in Australia that contains pineapple must be a Hawaiian idea. Why? Goodness knows. Australia has more pineapples than Hawaii for sure. Anyhow here’s another way to choke the chicken breast down… These can also be made with Pita Pocket Bread or libanese bread, like they […]

Spicy Tuna Noodles – Tom Yum Pla

Take 2 eggs, 2 minute noodles, and a little bit of time and BINGO! You have a full bodybuilders meal, at the same time turning boring, plain, bile inducing tinned tuna into an exotic tropical delicacy…. Yeah, that is a load of BS, but there is a hint of truth in it. Simply choosing Mama […]

Steak And Ratatouille

Another Australian classic nicked from the French, Ratatouille, why an Aussie classic? Well as a young kid my Dad would make this just about everytime he cooked for us, and as kids we liked it – and best yet you could just as easily cook it in the BBQ as at home, so we got […]

Meyer Lemon Meringue Kisses

Today, I decided to continue on my campaign to bring spring by baking Lemon Meringue Kisses. I figure this will help in 2 ways: (1) it’s a springy dessert and if I’m eating it then it must be spring; and (2) they are so delicious that spring is going to want to invite itself over […]

Sheep’s Cheese Macaroni with Tomatoes and Garlic

You must try this Sheep’s Cheese Macaroni with Tomatoes and Garlic. It’s grown-up flavor that even children will love. Like many of my recipes, it’s simple to prepare and budget-friendly. (I even bought the sheep’s cheese at Costco.) Let’s talk for a moment about flavors. No one wants to eat a one-note dish. There should […]

Easy Stew

I had family to feed – a hungry family. We all agreed that dinner had to be thrown together tonight. Nothing complicated. Nothing that required fancy ingredients. Nothing that would take more than an hour. I had some meat. I had some veggies. I had a lot of potatoes.

Rotini Salad of Grape Tomatoes, Red Onions, and Lots of Olives

One day in the middle of finals, I was out of groceries and didn’t have time for a grocery store run. Because of course you know that taking 15 minutes out of my day to buy food would have meant I would fail all my exams, never graduate from college, never go on to law […]

Caramelized Onion Stuffed Challah

How about switching it up this week by making caramelized onion stuffed challah? This caramelized onion and poppy seed filling can be used in almost any bread product to add flavor, moisture, and a delicious surprise with each bite.

Sweet Honey Mesquite Ketchup

I did not like tomatoes as a child. I wouldn’t eat tomato sauce. I picked tomatoes out of salads and off pizzas. Forget about tomato soup. Until one day when a neighbor gifted us with tomatoes she brought back from a trip to Jersey. I became a tomato-loving convert on the spot. Then I moved […]
