  This is a great summer recipe because it’s light, cool and refreshing. Be liberal with your use of the fresh mint and cilantro…it brings a ton of flavor to the salad! I’ve made this salad with different types of rice noodles, and rice sticks work as well as rice vermicelli. Whatever type of rice noodles you • Read More »

This salsa rocks! It’s easy to make and can be served with tortilla chips or as a topping for grilled chicken, pork or seafood. YUMM! Husband was skeptical of the mango/avocade combo at first but after his first bite, he was blown away by all the flavor. He then kept commenting on how good it was. I • Read More »

This delicious beef stir-fry dish is everything I was hoping it would be! You get great flavor from the peanuts, soy sauce, fish sauce and lime juice, and a nice kick from the chiles. Yumm!   Changes I made to the recipe: I doubled the cilantro and omitted the basil, substituted red onion for the shallot, • Read More »

  I made these flavorful chicken tacos the other night when we had friends over for dinner. They’re easy, delicious, and the chicken can be made ahead of time and reheated…always a bonus for entertaining! For the marinade, I substituted 1/2 of a canned chipotle pepper (chopped) and a little of it’s adobo sauce for the jalapeno, and • Read More »

I’m always looking for new and interesting sandwich recipes so I was intrigued when I saw this twist on a roast beef sandwich. There’s lots of flavor going on here: sweet red peppers, tangy feta cheese, earthy cumin and cilantro, and a lemony tahini dressing. For the bread, I used a pre-cut loaf of ciabatta bread • Read More »

February 27, 2010 | By andrea | 2 Comments | Filed in: Asian, Pasta, Quick Cooking, Recipes, Salad, Side Dish, Vegetarian.

I really enjoyed this simple and refreshing Asian noodle salad! I loved the combination of sweet, salty and tangy flavors. I added some julienned red bell pepper for extra crunch and color. To make a more substantial salad, stir-fried shrimp, chicken or tofu would also be delicious additions. For the dressing, I added a little sesame oil and • Read More »

December 29, 2009 | By andrea | Comments Off on Chicken Curry Soup with Coconut and Lime | Filed in: Asian, Chicken, Main Dish, Quick Cooking, Recipes, Soup/Stew.

  Here’s a quick curry-flavored soup that is delicious and easy to make. You can even change up the flavors each time you make it by using different curries. I used curry powder this time (doubling the amount called for); next time I’ll try red, green or yellow Thai curry paste. Although the soup would be • Read More »

Chipotle Guacamole

October 20, 2009 | By andrea | Comments Off on Chipotle Guacamole | Filed in: Appetizer, Dip, Mexican, Recipes.

Smoky Green Deliciousness, that’s what I call it. This guacamole is simple yet very tasty! Many guacs call for chopped jalapenos but this recipe uses chipotle chilies (smoked jalapenos), which not only provides a little heat but a subtle smoky flavor, too. While the recipe calls for using a molcajete (the large, 3-legged mortar & pestle made out • Read More »
