Coconut Curry Braised Short Ribs

I love coconut curries.  They are common on Thai menus and I adore their rich, creamy, and spicy flavors. Thai flavors have become rather common in my kitchen in recent years.  After I have my first bite of Pad Thai nearly ten years ago I became almost obsessed with trying new dishes and deconstructing them […]

Happy Cinco de Mayo!   Where I live May 5th is celebrated as a day to enjoy some tasty Tex-Mex or authentic Mexican food, have a few beers, and get together with friends and family.   I love Tex-Mex, which I think I have said before, so any excuse is a good when my favorite food […]

I always forget how easy soups are to make.     One of my favorite soups is cream of chicken.  For the longest time I would buy the soup from the deli of the grocery store because I quite simply never thought to make it myself.  I am kicking myself about it now because not only […]

I love one pot dishes.    Anything I can do to save washing up dishes after dinner is always welcome.  Aside from making the washing up easier, building the dish in one pan gives you a unique opportunity to develop some pretty robust flavors.  You never lose any fond, the caramelized bits that get stuck […]

I am ready for Spring.  Seriously ready.     I am ready for warm weather, rain showers, and packing up the winter clothes.  With that in mind, I decided to treat myself to an early taste of Spring a few nights ago.  It was cold outside and I was feeling a little blue, but this salad […]

 Sometimes it is all about the sauce.   The best part of this meal is really the sauce.  It is the right combination of tangy and sweet, unlike the neon red sauces served by most Chinese carry-out places. Not to say my mixture of chicken and vegetables in this dish are not fantastic, because they are, […]
