Fast and Cheesy Ramen #WeekdaySupper

This is a recipe by Chef David Chang of the the Momofuku empire. He was featured in the PBS series The Mind of a Chef and made his version of Cacio e Pepe using ramen noodles. I was astounded and amazed by his creation and had to recreate his dish! I’ve made this dish several […]

Korean Spicy Pork (Dwaeji Bulgogi) #WeekdaySupper

January 8, 2014

This is one of my favorite dishes! It certainly beats out the more popular and better known dish of beef bulgogi. I love the spicy, tangy, and slightly sweet marinade. Broiling or grilling the meat will caramelize the marinade nicely, but a quick pan fry is also sufficient. AND it is best served with rice. […]

Family Fondue #SundaySupper

December 15, 2013

In my 20’s and most of my 30’s, New Year’s Eve was usually an evening of high expectations and deep disappointments. Every year I vowed that I would stay in reminding myself of the petty drama the year before, but then every year I would be cajoled by a friend to get out of my […]

A good friend and I used to live across the street from a small French bistro. It was practically an annex to our apartment.  Moules marniere, steak frites, and martinis were a regular part of our diet, and living on the top floor of a 5-floor walk-up (a.k.a. a 5-story apartment building with no elevator) […]

Thanksgiving was supposed to happen at my parent’s place this year, but due to logistical issues, I am hosting this year with 5 families breaking bread together. My menu has been set since last month and it doesn’t vary too much from year to year, but this year I’m being a bit adventurous and adding […]

November 15, 2013

After a day of driving around playing chaffeur for my kids and going to multiple stores for this, that, and the other, the last thing I want to do is cook. I then think about the the limited take-out options and reluctantly convince myself that I will be disappointed….again. And if all the stars are […]

Greek-style Pork Chops #BosCreek

November 13, 2013

The Greenhouse Coffee Shop was just another hole-in-the-wall in Harvard Square in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Surly waitstaff, low ceilings, tired decor, and no bathroom. That’s right, NO BATHROOM. But it was it was in this tiny eatery where I had souvlaki for the first time. I’m not sure how I stumbled upon the place, but after that […]
