Happy accidents happen out of necessity. More specifically, the cravings that come on late at night. This was how this lovely recipe came about.
We just love these Thai rice noodles and we have been cooking them with every opportunity that we get. This is my version loosely based on our two favorite Thai Noodles, the Pad Thai and Pad See Ew. The Yard Long Beans were from our garden. Which makes me now itch to get back there and start planting!
Yard long beans, if you didn’t know, are also known as asparagus bean, Chinese long bean, garter bean, snake bean, and in the Philippines, we call them Sitaw. You can cook them pretty much anyway that you would a regular green beans, but they have a distinct flavor that is just unforgettable.
There is a law in nature that everything that rises or goes up, must come down. It’s called gravity. The same philosophy is also very much true in cooking. Anyone who has ever made cake can attest to that law.
St. Patrick’s Day came and was gone before I could even cook corned beef or buy any St. Patrick’s Day Candy. Maybe it was because it fell on a Monday and it was gray and dreary and so winter like. Usually by St. Patrick’s Day, it is already feeling like spring and it’s sunny and warm. Not this year! This is what it looked like this year.
More modern home kitchens are utilizing commercial kitchen designs because of their durability and practicality. For cooking enthusiasts, using commercial kitchen supplies just completes that ‘feeling like a pro’ vibe. However, when it comes to commercial kitchen supplies, you cannot just throw everything into the dishwasher and expect it to come out as good as new. Remember that commercial kitchens are held to a very high standard. Everything has to be cleaned thoroughly before it is used again. There are a few tips that can make sure that this happens.
There are several reasons people embrace the vegetarian lifestyle. For some, it’s a matter of morals and a desire to protect all life. Others, however, recognize the key health benefits associated with eating more fruits and vegetables. Or, like my daughter, just prefer the taste of fruits and vegetables over meat.
This dish is more like a summer dish instead of fall, but since I’m trying to clean up my drafts page on this blog, I present to you something fresh, light and easy to cook just when you’re getting inundated with pumpkin everything posts. You can thank me later 🙂
You can tell it’s almost Halloween as the candy aisles in the stores are again bulging with temptations for your waistline and your teeth. I actually made these cookies last year after Halloween, when all the candy and chocolates have been decimated except for these Heath Toffee bars. I guess no one else in this house likes them but me and I can’t very well eat all this on my own, so like every thing else that they don’t like to eat, I simply repackage it and present it to them again without mention of the offending ingredient.
