Copycat Postino Crispy Cauliflower


One of the new dishes I learned after moving to Scottsdale is Crispy Cauliflower at Postino. It was always an item that we pass on when we look at the menu as no one in the family like cauliflower. During one visit, I heard a server mention that it comes with a to-die-for romesco sauce. That piqued my interest, and Read More

Truffle Mushroom Quinotto


We tried mushroom quinotto at one of the Los Angeles restaurants over the New Year holiday. I liked the taste of the browned mushrooms, the texture of the quinoa, and the flavor of truffle permeating the grains. It has quite a long list of ingredients for an all-in-one dish, but if you have home-made chicken broth and the fresh herbs Read More

Baked Penne with Chicken and Mushrooms


The theme for the 57th Gourmet Club meet was Martha Stewart Christmas. Our esteem club member Lee Lee brought baked penne based on Martha’s recipe. Lee Lee advised that she adjusted Martha’s recipe quite a bit and added spicy sausage and fresh herbs. It was so good and I had to try it again at home. Here’s the modified recipe. Read More

This is another of those yummy dishes that I tried at Genwa in Los Angeles. I spent the whole morning preparing the banchan (side dishes) and bulgogi. The rest is just an assembly cexercise. It took much longer than I wanted, but I really enjoyed this colorful and healthy meal. Ingredients Beef bulgogi 200g spinach 3/4 lb soy bean sprouts Read More

Beef Bulgogi


The first time I tried Korean food was at Genwa in Los Angeles while visiting Hillary in UCLA. I was blown away by the bulgogi and a table full of Banchan. Since then, I have yet to find a Korean restaurant in the bay area that is as good as Genwa. We no longer make the trips to LA since Read More

Linguini with Chicken in Creamy Mustard Sauce


I was watching Food Network and saw an episode of Barefoot Contessa where Ina Garten was introducing good ingredients. One of them was mustard. I’ve rarely used mustard in cooking, but upon trying this recipe, I realized I can now introduce another flavor of pasta in my recipe bank! This creamy pasta sauce tastes really good! Ingredients 4 boneless skin-on Read More

Rancheros Eggs


I learned about Rancheros Eggs at a cooking class in Cabo San Lucas. All that I received in the form of a recipe is a list of ingredients. That is quite a challenge to recreate the dish at home?! Thankfully, I was half paying attention at the class and kind of remembered the proportions of ingredients. Anyway, the chef kept Read More

Enoki, Trumpet, and Shimeji Mushrooms Stir-fry


I found this very simple and delightful recipe in the Simple Thai Food cook book that Hanna bought for my birthday. In so many things we do, the simplest are the best. If you substitute the chicken stock with vegetable stock and use vegetarian oyster sauce instead of standard oyster sauce, you get a vegan dish out of this simple Read More

Thai Vegetarian Red Curry


It’s fall and it’s pumpkin and winter squash season! The winter squash looks so good in the store and I really wanted to incorporate it into my cooking this weekend. I decided to try the Delicata squash in Thai Red Curry along with a few other colorful bell peppers and tofu. It took a little more prep time roasting the Read More

Mee Goreng


Mee Goreng is one of the dishes that I didn’t check off from the ‘must-eat’ list during my whirlwind trip back to SG. There is only so much you can eat in a day, and 7 days in SG is just not long enough to try all the wonderful food this island has to offer! That is one of the Read More
