But it was a cold winter day and salads were not the best way to go.

I want a piping hot soup on this blustery day. A Rice Noodles Soup might just be it.


This noodle soup is very similar to (Read more...)

Sausage and Kale Pasta

Cooking oil - the fuel to our food. What type of cooking oil(s) are you using? Again, I am referring to "cooking" oil - so let's not talk about extra virgin olive oil typically used for dressing salads, or maybe marinating, sometimes that finishing touch to a completed dish.

To be more specific, what (Read more...)

Chicken and Asparagus En-Papillote

Thursday, October 24th, 2013

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

Other than using whole-grain Dijon mustard for these baked-in-the-oven grilled chicken wings, whole grain mustard can also be used to flavor the chicken in this Chicken and Asparagus En Papillote.


As you all know by now, I am a believer in En-Papillote a.k.a parchment cooking - fish, chicken or even (Read more...)

The series of flatbread pizza continues...


After an earlier trial with artichoke hearts, pea and corn lavash bread pizza, today's version plays on something more "exotic" - how does Maitake Mushroom Pizza sound? Maitake mushroom is known for its cancer-fighting properties like many other mushrooms. (Read more...)

Sometimes it is much easier to put together a dish like this Roasted Vegetables Couscous when there is no desire to stand behind a stove for even 15 minutes.

Fresh Shiitake Mushroom Soup 鲜香菇小白菜汤

Thursday, September 26th, 2013

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

With homemade chicken stock (or even vegetable broth/stock), it was definitely easier to cook anything - at least, I did not have to wait too long for flavors to develop in a slow mellow-simmer soup or stew. This quickie Fresh Shiitake Mushroom Flat Rice Noodle Soup was put together in less than 30 (Read more...)

Maitake Mushrooms with Chinese Broccoli 清炒舞茸拌芥蓝

Friday, August 30th, 2013

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

One of my favorite green vegetables is Gai Lan (Chinese Broccoli), so I can be quite choosy when it comes to buying Gai Lan; going for the the "younger" tender Gai Lan (usually thinner stems) and not those with thick stems which are typically too "old" and fibrous. Of course, if they are too fibrous (Read more...)

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

There is even a label-category for En-Papillote or parchment-cooking in my blog - that speaks how much I like this method of cooking. Fuss-free, clean, neat, retaining moisture and flavors - basically I cannot find any negatives, particularly catering to my personal preferences where taste and conve (Read more...)
