Easiest Baked Custard – 3 Ways

Whether It Be Simple or Elegant, It’s Definitely Irresistible. I’m a custard nut. I love it in most all of its variations. But I’m particular about what I want when I’m in the mood for a simple bowl of chilled baked custard. I like the consistency to be soft and lightly set. I don’t want […]

Goat Cheese Toasts with Korean Pear and Spicy Honey

Oh, Man. These are So Good You Won’t Believe It. This all came about because I bought Korean pears at my local Korean grocery store. Now, I’ve bought these many times in my regular grocery store and even at Costco, where they’re simply labeled Asian pears. But what I’ve discovered is the pears that actually […]

Cheddar Pie with Kimchi and Chinese Sausage

An Unusual and Very Tasty Twist on the Classic Cheese Pie. I’ve been using the kimchi I made in quite a few recipes and here’s one of my favorites. I added it to a creamy cheddar pie to which I also added sliced Lap Cheong – Chinese sausage *. If you’ve never eaten this sausage, […]

Slow-Roasted Strawberry Ricotta with Fried Dumpling Wrappers

Creamy Ricotta Dip with The Best Chips I’ve Ever Tasted. I don’t know if any of you have ever slow-roasted strawberries. I mean really slow-roast – 250° for at least 3 hours, and as many as 6. You simply put the strawberries in a pan/dish packed closely with a little sugar and let them slowly […]

Lamb Kebabs on Beet Flatbreads

Lamb Kebabs on Beet Flatbreads

Skewers of Lamb Served on Top of Flatbreads is Never a Bad Thing. I made my Beet Flatbreads with Pomegranate Raita and served them with lamb kebabs. I love skewering meats. Something about it just makes it so much more fun to eat rather than simply slicing up a leg of lamb.  I’ve been hooked […]

Fresh Mint Infused Panna Cotta with Olive Oil

Olive Oil Pannacotta

How’s This for a Beautiful and Easy Dessert? Panna cotta. Beautiful, white, milky, and eggless custard. What’s not to love, right? I’ve made a lot of different recipes for this dessert and had arrived at my favorite years ago. But when I read about adding olive oil to it, I knew I had to give […]

Purée of Beets with Roasted Carrots and Dukkah (Duqqa)

Puree of Beets with Roasted Carrots and Dukkah

A Glorious Combination of Color, Texture, and Flavors. Well, there are a few things going on here that warrant an explanation. I’ll start with the dukkah first. It’s an Egyptian nut, seed, and herb blend that’s been around a very long time. It’s used as a dip for flatbreads, amongst other things. I love it […]
