You guys. I’m kinda proud of this one. I tried something weird and new and it actually worked! Deliciously! See more about this unusually spiced, comforting dish after the jump! Continue reading
This week’s recipe was inspired (once again) by the poor leftover things languishing in my fridge. Namely this guy:
I’ve always preferred legs to breasts – on chickens, of course 😉 Bone-in chicken thighs especially have so much more character (a.k.a. fat) than chicken breasts. And the price! You just can’t beat it, especially when it’s on sale.
That’s like 50 cents per thigh! Wowza. With the help of some bright, fresh ingredients, these chicken thighs make a meal that’s balanced, satisfying and deeply flavorful – and you only need to dirty one pot! See how after the jump.
Summer berries are here, huzzah! To celebrate, I was going to make a typical fruit tart with cream cheese filling. But then I remembered this wonderful berry pie recipe from Cooks Illustrated and decided to combine the two. It takes some time to put together, but if you like berries and the tangy richness of cream cheese, this pie’s for you!
This is budget cooking that kicks ramen noodles’ ass(es?). Don’t get me wrong, I love me some instant ramen but this is so much better and still super affordable. See how I combine inexpensive pork chops with leftover bread crusts to make this tasty meal after the jump!
One day I had way too much leftover whipped cream (you know, it happens sometimes..). See my spoon drowning in the excess? My roommate suggested I just throw it away to which I gasped audibly and dramatically. WASTE this heavenly, pillowy goodness?
Instead, I decided to make a crepe cake – I had been wanting to try one and this was the perfect opportunity. See how I punched up the flavor after the jump!
I’m so proud when I can draw on my Korean heritage to make something epically awesome and yummy. Which these sliders are: plump, juicy, full of salty/sweet flavor and so so good on lightly toasted Kings Hawaaiin Rolls. Seriously, these will make you the hero of any party. Get the recipe after the jump!
A friend gave me this gorgeous, seeded loaf of bread and what can you do with really wonderful bread except make a really wonderful sandwich? And that doesn’t mean going out and buying $20 of prosciutto (although that would be divine). You can elevate almost any sandwich with some humble ingredients.
See what they are after the jump! Continue reading
One day my friend told me about icebox cakes and then I couldn’t get them out of my head until I tried them. Icebox cakes are one of those classic American treats that I never knew existed because to my Korean parents, dessert is cut up fruit. Fortunately, they’re dead easy to make so I was able to go home immediately to try it. See a step by step how-to after the jump!
