I made this pea salad last Sunday for lunch. We had a bunch of peas still from the huge batch batch I bought when I saw Ontario peas were in at to the market, a nice radicchio hanging around as well a beautiful new chunk of pecorino cheese picked up the day before that I was dying to try.

Black & White cookies are a New York classic - they are traditionally made from scoops of leftover cake batter baked like cookies, then glazed with half white and half chocolate icing. In fear of messing up the cake batter version, I made my own versions of cookies with my sugar cookie dough. I hope not too many New Yorkers are offended - my apologies!

I was just so enchanted with Elissa’s Inde­pen­dence Day Cake posted on her 17 and Bak­ing site site that I pushed it right to the top of the ‘PIHSIDLYATHOORIHS’ file. The Fourth of July, being my favorite hol­i­day might have biased me just a little.

There are very few times when I tell people “just try it” when it comes to food. I’m a picky eater and I detest when people tell “just try it” or “you won’t know if you don’t try it”. I’m open to a certain degree and will try most things, so when I do not it’s for a damn good reason.

While the above picture may look like any other ordinary pasta dish, it's anything but. Inspired by my good friend and food mentor, Giuseppe Viterale of Ornella Trattoria, I decided to try my efforts at what he calls Pasta Latte, pasta boiled in milk.

Here is a fun and easy treat for the 4th of July – Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes! Well, faux-ice cream cone cupcakes to be exact. Cone + Cupcake + Frosting.

Delish and a very similar texture to maple candy. Not a candy thermometer in sight!

I’ve “met” a number of very talented bloggers over the last few months. Each and every food blogger has a unique style of cooking and that’s what makes surfing the web to find new food blogs somewhat like a culinary journey.

Seriously, the reason is Filipino Style Spaghetti is always prepared with tomato sauces. If I use fresh tomatoes (which I do sometimes with olive oil –> yum!) alone, it won’t be Filipino style anymore.

This is often my go-to meal: sauteed chicken breasts (with or without a sauce), steamed veggies and a salad. Very easy and healthy and tasty.

Call me old fashioned....but I wouldn't call these enchiladas homemade because I used imitation crab meat and canned enchilada sauce. They were still good though and I dolled up the canned enchilada sauce to make it more creamy and luscious!!

Have you ever gone back to basics in the kitchen to see if you can still cook a traditional, simple recipe? In our global and multicultural society, we are so into cooking new recipes to experiment on exotic food pairings (mango with tuna steak or potatoes, capers and coffee ), or just trying to impress our friends with recipes from Michelin-starred chefs. This is fine (and so much fun!!), as long as we do not forget that simple recipes with few, high quality ingredients, often means more.

In my family, we LOVE s'mores and eat them all fun and creative types of ways! One of my favorite ways is to add some peanut butter on the graham cracker.

The balti is now a modern classic curry that came out of traditional curries from Northern Pakistan and was nurtured and loved within the Birmingham restaurant scene. It is an inexpensive and simple way of making a curry once you know how.

Hollandaise Sauce. The queen mother of emulsified sauces. Rich, suave butter and egg sauce, which tastes so elegant with freshly cooked asparagus, artichokes, poached fish or eggs benedict.

Here’s an upscale twist on an old classic!

I have a great recipe today for an easy, healthy and delicious summer appetizer that is fun to make. Instead of making a traditional tomato and mozzarella salad, try using skewers to create fun, pick-me-up “Caprese Sticks” that your guests will love.

As I was perusing my Jiangxi cookbook, I came across a recipe that struck me for many reasons. First, it really shows how much Hunan cuisine has helped shape the cooking of Jiangxi.

Not only do we get to cook in a professional kitchen, but after we cook….we get to sit down and have a nice dinner with our prepared foods. Mmmm…… and I hear there’ll be wine too! I’ve been looking forward to this for awhile. This will be our first “foodie” event since our weekend at Food Blog Forum Orlando,
