Zucchini Pad Thai Noodles “Zoodles”

Zucchini Pad Thai Noodles “Zoodles”

  The sound of zucchini pasta didn’t exactly entice our appetites. We’ve heard of zoodles, or zucchini noodles but had never tasted them. Zucchini pasta recipes? Ok….how….interesting. Yes, we judged the humble zucchini. The thought of making zucchini noodles didn’t exactly have us running to the kitchen to whip up a batch. Maybe we thought […]

Juicy Asian Oven Roasted Pulled Pork for Sliders, Pasta or Rice.

This is the unabashed, meat-lovers edition of pork. Apologies if the photo is an abrupt, in-your-face visual of juicy and saucy pork in its entirety. In fact, there’s no scattering of pretty garnish nor greens nor linen-pretty. It’s a delicious and amazing pulled pork dish and that’s pretty much all we wanted to share with […]

Pork and KimChi Noodle Stir Fry

It was last month that we photographed an assignment that involved way too many quinoa recipes. How many exactly? Let’s just say that we were blinded by quinoa grains and couldn’t stomach another bite of anything whole grain. It was an assignment that could have benefited our personal health, unlike some chocolate and cocktail shoots […]

Garlicky Winter Greens and Chickpea Salad

Garlicky Winter Greens and Chickpea Salad

Before we left on our crazy seven week Bountiful book tour and jet down to Southern Australia, we took a look at our dormant and sleepy garden. And then we sighed, wondering if it’s too early to try to seed for Winter veggies. It’s usually during end of October to beginning of December that the […]

Sriracha Roast Chicken with Sriracha Gravy

I have to admit, Diane is brilliant at times. I should be a good man and say all the time, but then everyone would know I’m either blinded by love or kissing ass. It seems like we are roasting a whole chicken about every other week. I put a lot of care into the juiciness […]

Spring Roll Bites – “Tapas” for All

Spring Roll Bites – “Tapas” for All

Perhaps it’s by birth that I’m so addicted to fresh spring rolls. I can’t negate the fact that I was bred on a diet of rice and noodle dishes, so anything with Vietnamese or Asian flavors always sounds appealing. But if I could name one Vietnamese dish that I have at least three or four […]

Grilled Green Tomatoes, An Accidental Dish

Grilled Green Tomatoes, An Accidental Dish

It’s always an accident. At some point during my garden duties of tying up the tomato vines on the trellis, I inevitably bump a healthy green tomato and watch it fall to the ground. Darn it. There’s nothing more frustrating than to watch a beautiful heirloom tomato grow to it’s perfect shape and never see […]
