Does a salad always have to be served on a salad plate and eaten with a salad fork? If bread forms part of the salad, does the bread always have to be in the form of croutons? As far as I am concerned, the answers are no and no. I like variety. So, a couple [...]

Christmas Eve menu, 2014

I get a little nostalgic during the holidays. When Speedy brought up the matter of the Christmas Eve menu, images of a two-year Sam being asked by her father what she was eating while camcording her flashed through my mind. “Farmer’s pie,” Sam replied. A year later, while decorating the tree, there was the not-quite-two-year-old […]

Churros cupcakes with chocolate fudge frosting

Kimchi fried rice (bokkeumbap)

Leftover kimchi was cut into small pieces then stir fried with day-old rice. Topped with an egg, fried sunny side up, and garnished with nori, it makes a tasty and filling meatless meal. Was the kimchi home made? No, but next time it probably will be. I’ve never really been a fan of food spiced […]

Sweet corn and tapioca pearls pudding

It’s a Vietnamese sweet called che bap. In the Western world, it is categorized as a dessert pudding but it isn’t exactly that. In the first place, dessert is a Western concept; so is pudding. For convenience sake and for lack of a better English translation, let’s just call che bap a pudding. So, how […]
