Cumin Pan-Seared Scallops

It was a Saturday night, and I had a couple of people joining me for dinner. I looked at the time and realized I was cutting it real close to the time they were to arrive. (Sounds like the start of a story right? ;D)  I wanted to be adventurous and make a scallop dish that wasn’t going to take too long […]

Sweet Red Onion Marmalade

I love pairing dishes with just about anything that might complement its color or aroma or flavors! When I was making my Cumin Pan-seared Scallops, I found this Red Onion Marmalade to be a tasty complement. Sweet Red Onion Marmalade Servings: 10-12 Servings Total Time: 15 minutes Ingredients: 3 Red Onions (medium, sliced) 1/3 cup Cherry Wine Vinegar 2 Tbsp. […]

Tom Rim (Vietnamese Caramelized Shrimp)

Shrimp… I would have never thought in a million years I would enjoy it. The texture of shrimp doesn’t settle well with me. I realized how wrong I was after having this dish!! Maybe I had a bad batch, who knows! Tom Rim, Vietnamese Caramelized Shrimp, looked so appetizing, I had to try it for myself.  I did my digging […]

Roasted Garlic Cappa Santa

I was walking through the grocery store and wanted to make some type of seafood. I was thinking either Halibut or Salmon, but then I saw scallops! Scallops are very delectable and low in both calories and fat. Most people avoid shellfish because they are generally high in cholesterol. They are a good source of potassium (cardiovascular health), magnesium (blood […]

Buckwheat Noodle Stir-Fry with Zucchini (Soba)

It’s just one of those days when you are so, so hungry, but you don’t want to be cooking in the kitchen all night. I opened my pantry and found a packet of buckwheat noodles and a bottle of mushroom based Soy-sauce. I immediately thought about a stir-fry and my mouth began to water. That was what I needed to […]

Mongolian Chicken Chang’s Style

I have not been a huge fan of P.F. Changs, but everyone seems to love it. They do have some dishes that I do love, but not enough for me to love this restaurant as a whole. My top three are the Chicken Lettuce Wraps, Chang’s Spicy Chicken, and the Mongolian Beef. After trying their Mongolian Beef, I wanted to […]

Cheesecake Factory – Luau Salad

Friday comes around — we get a reminder email at work — “TEAM LUNCH/MEETING CHEESECAKE 12:00PM” , my mind goes crazy with thoughts of food! Cheesecake Factory (the only place we meet if there’s ever a work lunch) and I generally am the one to be adventurous with trying new dishes. I love to try new dishes! New food adventures […]

Chicken Biryani

A dish I have been wanting to try to make for a while now is Chicken Biryani. This dish is particularly known for its layers of divine flavors that slowly develop and blend together. In order to have that aroma and ambrosial taste, biryani is a multistep process that requires a long cooking time. The flavors in the dish come […]
