Spicy Crispy Pork-y Stir-Fry

This dish is a play on 닭강정 (dalgangjeong or dakgangjeong), that irresistible Korean snack food delicacy of spicy, savory, sweet, crispety, gingery fried chicken. I’ve used boneless country-style pork ribs cuz we lurrve pork but chicken would also work well

Miso-Blood Orange Glazed Salmon

The blood oranges have been seducing me with their siren song. Sweeter than other orange varieties with a deep ruby hue so how could I resist when even Odysseus had to be tied to a mast to resist their allure?

สังขยาฟักทอง: Kabocha Coconut Custard

Aloha, back from paradise and will be posting some other tropical recipes (yes, I couldn’t help myself and cooked on holiday but just a little); however, this SE Asian dessert was too good to pass up. This is another amazing

Sườn Xào Nước Mắm: Crispy Stir-Fried Pork Ribs With Caramelized Fish Sauce

It may seem that I’m a gastronomic magpie and in a sense I am. Looking back at the last few weeks, my posts have been all over the map. Literally. I guess you could say that I like variety but

ข้าวแกงเขียวหวานผัดปู: Green Curry Fried Rice With Crab

Despite living and working in Chiang Mai for a month, the first time I had curry fried rice was in St. Paul, Minnesota. Usually the words “fried rice” conjure up an image of savory rice that’s been cooked over super

スパムお結び: Spam Omusubi (It’s Not Just A Monty Python Skit)

While I lurrrrve pork and all things porky, I’ve never been a fan of meat that can be molded and sculpted into cubes interesting shapes so spam was never really on the menu. Needless to say, after discovering a tangy,

肉じゃが: Hearty Yet Light Japanese Meat & Potatoes?

Like many people, after weathering the cold and hectic frenzy the winter holiday season seems to bring into our lives (not to mention the additional celebratory poundage), I feel the need to eat something hearty and belly-warming but not coma

ฟักทองแกงไก่: Kabocha Pumpkin Curry Chicken For When The Thermometer Hits Brrr!

The highs have just barely broken 40F with gusting winds and enough showers to give us large pools of standing water at the intersections and now the itinerant snowflakes have made an appearance. Despite wearing multiple sweaters, waterproof jackets, and

お粥: Japanese Soupy Rice Porridge For Colds & Unhappy Tummies

Christmas is around the corner and the neighborhood is redolent with the sounds of sneezing and sniffling. Yup. It’s the season of giving and nothing keeps on giving like the common cold 😉 I’ll often go with chicken matzo ball

ฟักทองลงสรง: Swimming Kabocha With Roasted Chickpeas & Mâche Greens

To use an overly used and abused phrase, you can’t swing a dead cat in Portlandia without hitting at least 3 Thai restaurants. Thai food here is about as ubiquitous as hipsters and Prius’ so it’s rather ironic that I’ve
