Teriyaki Burgers w/Homemade Teriyaki Sauce – Think outside the bottle

A while back, we were lamenting about how overly sweet and artificial some bottled teriyaki sauces were. With the exception of one that we liked on our teriyaki burgers, most were too sugary. Fake tasting. Processed. Yuck. With the grilling season underway, we wanted some teriyaki variety to our bbq menu and it was always […]

Fresh Anise Yogurt Dressing/Dip – Good Bite Video

Fennel bulb, the sweet, licorice flavored vegetable that we adore is often taken for granted. The prized bulb has so much culinary value that I’d giddy with excitement when I can get my hands on a fresh bulb.

Endive & Radicchio Salad w/Creamy Parmesan Dressing from Rancho La Puerta Cookbook

I’m guilty and fessing up to the fact that I often drown my salads in dressing. Simple, crisp and fresh salads are my favorite ways to eat greens, sans all the complicated toppings. The extra toppings often get in the way of my favorite greens. But to contradict myself in a bowl of lettuce, I’ll […]

Somen noodles w/Sweet Soy-Ginger Sauce -Takashi’s Noodles Cookbook

Since our remarkable trip to Japan in August, we’ve been craving Japanese noodles with a vengence.

Versatile Curry Gravy with Fried Fish (or what ever you heart!)

I can’t imagine a life without curry. Thinking about it brings a void and desperate plea to my palate, “Noooooo!”  The warm, fragrant combination of spices topped over warm rice, tofu, veggies,  fish or meats is indispensable for me. Long ago, I swore to not live a bland life. I shall not live curry-less. As […]

It’s a catch-22 situation with this post because we get e-mails requesting more updates on the garden, but if we do, we certainly don’t wan’t to be rubbing today’s 78 degree sunshine in anyone’s blog face.
