Bulgogi Tacos

Bulgogi Tacos

I love this recipe for bulgogi tacos. It’s a delicious, actual 30-minute weeknight dinner that my 3-year-old eats and eats and eats, and so do we adults. Even so, just how much I liked it surprised me. I’m not generally a fan of fusion cuisine. I […]

Spicy Pork with Asparagus

Spicy Pork with Asparagus

Making and enjoying this recipe for Spicy Pork with Asparagus is directly related to our spring cleaning efforts. Recently Alex and I have gone through much of our stuff to try to downsize. One day, eventually, we will buy a house, and we had might […]

Japanese Fried Chicken (Tori no Kara-age)

Japanese Fried Chicken (Tori no Kara-age)

This Japanese fried chicken is near and dear to my heart. The recipe, called tori no kara-age, was the first dish my host mom ever made for me when I studied abroad – we ate it the night I moved in with my homestay family. […]

Sesame Noodles

Sesame Noodles

Honestly, I’m in a cooking rut. For every delicious dessert I write about (and I don’t even write about those frequently nowadays), there’s several evenings’ worth of dinner that I’m not interested in cooking. I can’t make a weekly dinner plan to save my life […]

Thai Chicken with Basil and Cashews

Kung Pao Chicken Tacos

Kung Pao Chicken Tacos

I’m going to complain about a rather tasty dinner I made. Yes, complain. Because although Kung Pao Chicken Tacos were tasty, it was an awful lot of prep for 5 minutes of eating dinner. I know that I’m the person who makes her own vanilla […]

Summer in St. Louis is the pits. For those of you who say “summer doesn’t start until Wednesday,” I present you with St. Louis weather. Our high today was 96; drought conditions are spreading, yet humidity is high; and the next cold front that moves […]

Kung Pao Sauce

Kung Pao Sauce

For the Chinese New Year, I decided I would season the wok that I’ve had for several years but never used. I’d never seasoned a wok before, and I didn’t do a good job the first time. The basic idea behind seasoning a wok is […]

Hainan Chicken and Rice

Hainan Chicken and Rice

Happy Lunar New Year! There are a variety of foods that one is supposed to eat for the lunar new year, but unfortunately, in spite of having spent a year in Japan, I don’t know enough about what those should be. I apparently should have […]

Soy and Cola Braised Pork Shoulder

Soy and Cola Braised Pork Shoulder

Schnucks had boneless pork shoulders on sale for a while, so I stocked up. One of the things I wanted to do to one was make Soy and Cola Braised Pork Shoulder. I bought a bottle of full-sugar cola because I wanted to try this […]
