As I was in my local trade’s market, I saw a whole shelf dedicated to just Sauerkraut. I love all things pickled and fermented so of course I just had to try it! When buying sauerkraut, you really do have to look at the ingredients, as this will greatly affect the taste and quality of the sauerkraut. Continue reading “Sauerkraut Tofu soup”
This dish is a bit of a namesake as basically when eaten, I got the comment that it was “not visually appealing” thus it was a “poor man” who had to eat it. Of course there is absolutely nothing wrong with the dish itself, it just slightly disintegrated when I cooked it… Continue reading “Poor Man’s Beef”
The use of herbs have been as intimidating to me as spices were. Being of Chinese decent, mos of my cooking/tasting experiences have been rather “herb-less” so embarking on a herb combination was quite difficult. I don’t even know what many herbs taste like or what they would taste like paired with other things. I’m the weird one in the kitchen randomly chewing on dry herbs just to figure out what they taste like. For some strange reason the combination of tarragon, savory, and mint seemed to scream at me as I thought about how t make my beef that night. Continue reading “Beef in Tarragon Herb Sauce”
Stir-fried salmon and soy beans are something that I’ve had before. However, attempting to stir-fry salmon was one feat I didn’t conquer so well. The salmon pieces fell apart so quickly that it sort of made a mess of everything, but of course now I know to how to fix that. Continue reading “Salmon Stir-fry”

Seasoned with herbes de provence, this flavorful dish will definitely please the family and be gone in an instant! Continue reading “Pan-roasted herbed chicken breast with vegetables”
Roast chicken is perhaps the most classic dish of all, however, perfectly cooking it can be a bit tricky especially when you stuff it with vegetables. The secret? A pre-heated skillet! Continue reading “Whole roasted chicken stuffed with vegetables”
This is an ooooold recipe. I just started realizing the wonders of herbs at this point. Before this recipe I had never marinated my meats in anything but soy sauce and salt. Both the thyme and rosemary in this recipe work really well with the chicken and vegetables and is a great dish for a busy night or even just for one.
This recipe was one that I was very excited to make! IT’s great for a crowd as it makes enough for about 10-15 bowls! This of course was inspired by a Youtube personality Quang Tran so be sure to go checkout his videos! It tasted just like the restaurants and even easier to make!
