This week has been really cold in the San Francisco Bay Area and I was thinking what would be the best recipe that represents winter food in Japan. Although there are regional favorites in each area of Japan, I grew up in Tokyo area and what I came up with is Oden.

Oxtail Kare Kare (kare kareng buntot) is a stew type of dish that is always present in every Filipino party. I’m not talking about ordinary parties, but rather important ones like baptisms and weddings. It is one of the centerpieces of feast table — meant for special occasions and special guests.

I instinctively made a pot of soup; something that would simmer for hours, but also something that I haven't cooked before. And sure enough, I surprised even myself to make a pot of turkey soup ala Pho.

Sure, they are much softer and juicier than a typical potato skin. But their natural umami adds a lot of flavor to each small bite. And here’s the real kicker. When you squeeze in the sides, suddenly this little cap transforms. Going from a simple stuffed mushroom to a perfect potato skin look-a-like.

Pineapple Tarts are my family and friends favourite. I've been repeatedly using the same recipe every year and this year I've made them into cute little shapes of pineapple. Place the Pineapple Shaped Tarts into a pretty box and your friends will be very happy to receive this 'ong lai' 旺来which translated literally in Fujian means 'prosperity has come' and also believe that this will bring them good luck after eating them.

I realized that the minute they started baking in the oven. The smell! Oh, the smell! They smelt like a banana cake smothered with buttered popcorn and kissed by milky chocolate. In other words, utterly divine! They tasted even better.

Salad Dressings, Vinaigrettes – sure, you can buy them; Ranch, Italian, what have you. But then the total number of ingredients in your salad bowl will jump from, say, ten to well over forty and include a bunch of long, scary ones you’d never want to pronounce. Making your own salad dressing is easy and it will beat the store-bought kind.

It seems this is the time of resolutions – everything from “sticking to my gluten free diet 100%” to “becoming organized” to “getting a body like Jennifer Aniston or Ryan Reynolds.”

It's 2012 and I can't believe how fast 2011 flew. That's because I was having the time of my life and as they alway say, time flies when you're having fun. So true!

Substitute the freshest white fish fillets available if you can’t find snapper. Lay out 4 squares of foil or baking paper. Divide beans, tomato and basil leaves between each square. Top with fish, skin side down. Season and drizzle over a generous amount of olive oil - about 1 tablespoon per parcel. Seal each parcel and place on a baking tray.

One of the great things about living in Michigan is our abundant lakes - we are the Great Lake State after all. This week, I made some of the whitefish I purchased from Bay Port Fisheries, which has been in business on the shores of Lake Huron since 1895.

I adore cabbage in all its myriad forms, but love most especially that solid bowling ball, layers, thick as leather, turning their backs on the elements and clinging onto each other for dear life — the green cabbage.

The village laid still and quiet today, the day after a night of revelry for Dia de Los Reyes, or Three Kings Day in Spain. It was in stark contrast to the party of the night before – the village crowd had filled the streets to eagerly await the arrival of the Three Kings, while the children, their presents!

The roots of this curry are set in Bengaldesh and its addition into our family from my aunt who is Bengali. My mom has changed a few things like the addition of red chilli flakes and milk just to add a slight twist. From what I am told every Bengali home has a version of this ‘Chicken Rizala‘, but you will not find two Rizala’s alike. This is easy, quick and will become a go to dish for years to come.

Totally. Into my cold, dead, beautifully manicured hands, that’s when I want someone to hand me a fucking fruit cake. I don’t care how much booze is in that damn cake – it’s not enough. It’ll be the sugar rush to propel me into the next life. Until then, I’ll take just about any other housewarming or hostess gift that includes alcohol, thank you very much.
