Asian Salad Dressing is Super Simple

Published by under Cooking at Home

Last night we couldn’t figure out what to eat for dinner! We rummaged through the fridge and saw the huge box of salad we bought at Costco and decided to make a chicken salad with Asian dressing. The dressing is very similar to what you would have at Benihana’s or any other Japanese restaurant. It [...]

No Need for Ikea: Swedish Meatballs with Fettucine

Published by under Cooking at Home

The past couple of days have been busy, so we weren’t able to cook anything! But we’re back with something you don’t think about eating everyday – Swedish Meatballs!

My parents have been in Vietnam for the past 3 weeks for my grandfather’s funeral. They are coming back home tomorrow night, and my brother had asked me to make some food for them. Many times when Daniel and I cook, we always have extra to share with my family, so it’s nothing new to [...]

Our Twist on the Traditional Wonton Noodle Soup

Published by under Cooking at Home

A few days ago during our grocery run, we bought some ingredients to make wonton noodle soup. It’s something neither of us made before, so that’s why we call it our own twist. The filling for the wonton was made with ground pork, ginger, ground garlic, straw mushrooms, green onions, soy sauce, and worcestershire sauce. [...]

Vermicelli Noodles with Charbroiled Beef, also known as Bun Thit Nuong

Published by under Cooking at Home

The garlic fish sauce recipe from my previous post yields quite a bit of sauce, so it only makes sense for me to prepare something the next night to utilize it. So I did none other than another Vietnamese classic – Bun Thit Nuong, which translates to Vermicelli Noodles with Charbroiled Beef (or Pork). If [...]
