Myanmar Cultural Tidbit ~ Yellow Face Paint is Beautiful

IMG_1401.jpg

Myanmar is Burma with a new name. And it’s on the brink of becoming more “new world” now that foreign travel to this Asian country (west of Thailand, on the Bay of Bengal) is opening up. Which will probably wreck it, my guess. Let me spread some Myanmar charm while I can… people paint their […]

Tee Pon Chicken (aka Sherry-Soy Chicken)

1TeePonChicken.jpg

Advice, please?  I was cooking a simple Tee Pon Chicken recipe, but fretting about photographing “ugly” brown on brown — dark shredded chicken over brown rice. Forget garnishes, I was HUNGRY and it smelled divine. Taking pictures of meat is a crap-shoot (sorry, kinda graphic when talking about food) but I really wanted to share […]

Road Trip! Foodie Walking Tour of Cantonese San Gabriel Valley

Three and a half hours, more eating than walking, we were rapt students during our culinary tour of LA’s “new Chinatown.” The San Gabriel Valley Food Tour by Six Taste Tours was Larry’s idea (again, he luvs this stuff). Adventure pals Cathi and Barry (the ones who zipped around Long Beach on Segways with us), […]

Well, I now know what to make when our four-couple Gourmet Club has a Thai themed dinner – this delicate Thai Green Papaya Salad. The dressing is Thai-YUM, I wanted to lick the bowl.  It’s a combo of textures, too – crunchy almonds to crisp cucumbers to soft papaya to airy fried rice sticks. But […]

Chicken Pumpkin Lemongrass Soup

AsianPumpkinLemongrassSoup.jpg

Things to cook with pumpkin were getting boring here, so I thought an Asian flavored soup would be different. I took this ‘n that from about five recipes and came up with a pot of flavorful, thick Chicken Pumpkin Lemongrass Soup. What gave it Asian oomph was fresh-cut lemongrass from our patio. And juice from […]

Vietnamese Nuoc Cham Dipping Sauce

How making fresh pumpkin puree got me to prepare Vietnamese Nuoc Cham Sauce is like six degrees of separation from Kevin Bacon. A) Can’t find Libby’s canned pumpkin.  B) Buy fresh pumpkins, roast and puree. C) Cook some sweet things with the puree, burn out, a good supply still in the freezer. D) Decide to […]

Patti’s Noodle Bowl for Two

Another name for the recipe could be, “What’s in the produce bin that needs eating NOW?”  With a teensy bit of leftover meat, Asian-ish veggies and some noodles, Noodle Bowl is served. One challenge to this dish is ~ it makes you sweat.  Not spicy sweat, but steamy sweat.  Great for winter, but we eat […]

Emperor’s Farmers Market Salad

Entitled “Cucumber, Carrot and Tomato Salad,” the recipe served 130.  That’s a good sized “cooking for a crowd” recipe, but considered small at Project Angel Food.  This was my cooking task last week with fellow volunteer, Sarah.  Since it had great blogging/household dining potential, I wrote the full size recipe on a box sticker to […]

ThaiPastawithChicken.jpg

In anticipation of turkey leftovers, friends… Larry and I both work from home offices so we share a good number of meals together. For my lunch today, I dibbed leftovers of this Thai Pasta with Chicken while we were still eating it for dinner last night. We were in Thailand a few years ago and […]
